How To Talk About Erectile Dysfunction With Your Partner


We understand – this is a tricky one.

For you, maybe the issue of erectile dysfunction has been hovering over your relationship for several months, whether named as such or not. It’s very easy to fall into the trap of thoughts like “Maybe he just doesn’t find me attractive anymore” or even worse “Maybe there’s someone else.”

If these feelings aren’t thoughtfully and openly communicated, they can often aggravate the problem, creating vicious cycles of mistrust and hurt – most would agree this isn’t great for your relationship, let alone your sex life.

But this isn’t always an easy thing to discuss with your partner, who may be sensitive about the issue. We’re here to break it down for you and give you some tips to open up a healthy dialogue with your partner to get you on the right track, and feeling normal again.

  1. Be kind but be honest too. It won’t serve you in the long term to downplay your feelings. Express to your partner what you’re thinking and feeling, what your fears are.
  2. Try not to place blame. Erectile dysfunction occurs for lots of different reasons, some related to pre-existing medical conditions, and some related to over thinking, performance anxiety and just the natural process of aging.
  3. Don’t expect an immediate response. If this is the first time you’ve spoken to your partner about the issue, don’t be disappointed if he isn’t ready to discuss it with you right then and there. He may need some time to come to terms with it himself before he feels ready to take the issue on.
  4. Be sensitive, but not pandering. Your partner knows you well and will be able to tell the difference between your flattery and honesty.
  5. Carry on with the rest of your day. Don’t turn one conversation into an hours-long time warp and instead express yourself and then move on to your regular daily routine.

Give these tips a go and let us know how they worked for you. Remind your partner that they needn’t visit the doctor if they feel uncomfortable doing so and can instead order ED medication at drandrews.co.uk that is affordable, effective and will arrive in discreet packaging.
