TPTNS for Treating Patients With Premature Ejaculation

Brief description of study

Background: Transcutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation is an effective therapy for controlling urinary incontinence. Premature ejaculation (PE) and urinary incontinence are anatomically and physio-pathologically similar. Based on this, the use of this therapy is considered to be viable for the control of PE.

Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of transcutaneous posterior tibial nerve electrostimulation for the ejaculatory reflex.

Patients and Methods: Phase II clinical trial. Patients with a diagnosis of premature ejaculation who are treated at the Colombia Boston Medical Group clinic will be included. The participants will receive 3 transcutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation therapies per week for 12 weeks. The IELT and the PEDT scale will be evaluated on week 6, at the end of treatment and three months after completing the protocol.
