Speaking to Your Partner About ED
You may feel ashamed, embarrassed or even afraid to bring up the topic of your erectile dysfunction (ED) with your partner or doctor. If you feel this way, you are not alone!
Remember that ED does not only affect you. It can also have a profound effect on your partner.
Like many men, it can cause you to distance yourself from your partner and as a result, your partner may get the mistaken impression that you have either lost interest, or that you are no longer attracted to them.
For this reason, it is critical for both of you to remember that the majority of cases of ED are associated with a physical condition. Both of you need to know that that this is not from any reduction in your affection or desire for sex, but from a medical condition.
Ask your partner for support. If possible, sit down with your partner and talk about the ways ED may have impacted your relationship. Some couples have very open communication around sex and it’s an easy topic. Either way, this can be an opportunity to share your feelings and let your partner know that you would like to make things better.
Since ED affects both of you, it might be a good idea for your partner to come with you to your doctor’s appointment – something we try to encourage. That way, you will both get a clear idea of the condition and the treatment options that are available for you. Together, you can talk them over and choose the course of action that’s best for both you and your relationship.
