Step 2: It takes two, so talk to your partner
The first thing you should do is to admit there is a problem to be solved. Although a consultation with your physician is a good idea, talking to our partner is even more important. Let us be very clear about the stakes. Your partner has noticed your failures — it is not something easy to hide. If you are now avoiding the chance to be intimate, this has also been registered. In fact, all changes in your routines are picked up and may be misunderstood. Your partner may believe you no longer love her and you are ready to leave her for another partner. It is so easy to believe you have grown bored with her. Perhaps she is not quite as pretty as when you first met. She may fear the worst.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is sometimes described as a “couple’s disease”. When it affects the man, it also affects his partner. If the current relationship is important to you and you want it to continue, you have to talk to your partner and reassure her that you are going to get treatment. In fact, by making your partner a part of the cure, you can actually make the relationship stronger. If you both go to see your physician, she will feel involved and take some responsibility for helping you through to the full cure. When it comes to resuming sexual activity, she can take it slowly and help you relax into your old routines. Half the battle is confidence that your body will react normally to sexual stimulation. The other half is enjoying the result. Step 3 and 4 >>
