3 Tips for Supporting a Partner Suffering From Erectile Dysfunction

1. Consider the Cause

erectile dysfunctionThere are dozens of possible causes of ED. To treat its symptoms, you must first understand what might be causing them. Does your husband feel pressure to perform? Could he be aroused by something other than you? Is he going through a stressful transition at work that’s affecting his mental health? Consider all possible causes of ED to determine the best way to proceed and restore your relationship’s intimacy.  

2. Go to the Doctor With Him

Your partner may feel embarrassed or even ashamed of his ED, but you can show your support by attending a doctor’s appointments with him. This gesture will remind him that you understand erectile dysfunction is a medical condition and that his inability to perform is not his fault. Meeting with a urologist will also ensure you are both on the same page when it comes to treating the ED and reviving your sex life.  

3. Encourage Other Healthy Habits

Stress can be a major contributor to ED, and poor lifestyle habits can affect your libidos. Make sure you’re both eating a balanced diet and getting in at least some gentle exercise every day.
