OBJECTIVE: To compare therapeutic effects of acupuncture and medication on primary simple premature ejaculation. METHODS: One hundred and eleven cases were randomly divided into an acupuncture group (n = 56) and a medication group (n = 55). The acupuncture group was treated by acupuncture with acupoint group I Xinshu (BL 15), Ganshu (BL 18), Pishu (BL 20), Shenshu (BL 23) and acupoint group II Guanyuan (CV 4), Zhongji (CV 3), Sanyinjiao (SP 6), Taixi (KI 3), Taichong (LR 3) alternately selected, one acupoint group daily. The medication group was treated with oral administration of Sailete tablets, 20 mg each tablet, one tablet each night. After they were treated for one course, their therapeutic effects were compared. RESULTS: The total effective rate was 82.1% in the acupuncture group and 63.6% in the medication group; the cumulative score after treatment was 12.56 +/- 3.84 in the acupuncture group and 11.50 +/- 3.77 in the medication group, with a significant difference between the two groups in the therapeutic effect (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: Acupuncture has a better therapeutic effect on primary simple premature ejaculation.
