Your partner will experience an overwhelming emotional toll as well. They might feel unattractive and struggle with the right way to support you.
Here’s a look at several ways to cope with ED and still live a great life:
Honesty is the best policy
Be honest with yourself about the problem you’re facing, and then be honest with your partner. This will make it easier for full disclose when it comes to what’s going on down there.
Talk about not only the problem, but also solutions. When you’re having trouble, what do you need your partner to do?
Be open to new and creative options in the bedroom to be aroused too.
Now that you’re disclosing the intimate details about your ED, it’s important to remember that while you’re experiencing it, this isn’t all about you.
Your honest open line of communication will help your partner understand your feelings.
You’ll need to create an open dialogue with your doctor too. If you’re not honest, you may not get the required help you need. It’s imperative to provide every detail, no matter how embarrassed you may feel about it.
Have a little patience
ED medications work for some men right away, and others may have to try a few different brands to find one that works.
With all of these different possibilities, it’s important to remain patient. Doctors can always adjust dosages or prescribe different medications.
If you find yourself having difficulties coping after receiving medication to treat ED, therapy can be an option for you and your partner. Getting another opinion on the subject often helps, and sometimes even discussing your experience with another man that’s dealt with ED can be extremely beneficial.
