  1. Marked delay in ejaculation.
  2. Marked infrequency or absence of ejaculation.

B) The symptoms in Criterion A have persisted for a minimum duration of approximately 6 months.

C) The symptoms in Criterion A cause clinically significant distress in the individual.

D) The sexual dysfunction is not better explained by a nonsexual mental disorder or as a consequence of severe relationship distress or other significant stressors and is not attributable to the effects of a substance/medication or another medical condition.

Acquired:  The disturbance began after a period of relatively normal sexual function.

 

Specify whether:

Generalized:  Not limited to certain types of stimulation, situation, or partners.

Situational:  Only occurs with certain types of stimulation, situations, or partners.

 

Specify current severity:

Mild: Evidence of mild distress over the symptoms in Criterion A.
