Almost every man experiences occasional erection problems, and an estimated 18 million American men have been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction. If you are the partner of a man with ED or the early symptoms of impotence, your support can be a critical part of his recovery plan. Here are some ways in which you can help:
1. Be understanding: If the guy in your life is facing increasing difficulty in getting and keeping an erection suitable for intercourse, you must recognize that the problem is almost certainly not a reflection of his feelings — or lack thereof — for you but rather a physical or emotional issue that must be treated.
2. Encourage him to seek professional care: Erectile dysfunction can be caused by a number of different factors, many of which relate to vascular function. The road to recovery begins with a professional diagnosis of the problem’s root cause. Once that has been identified, he can take steps to resolve the problem.
3. Support him in his recovery program: The vast majority of ED is caused by insufficient blood flow to the penis, a problem that can arise because of, or be exacerbated by unhealthy lifestyle decisions. Eating a healthy diet, adherence to a regular exercise program, quitting smoking, losing weight, and managing underlying medical conditions can help him to regain normal erectile function or at least minimize his symptoms of ED.
4. Be patient: For many men, the treatment for ED will be Viagra or one of the other PDE5 inhibitors. These medications don’t produce a spontaneous erection, and it can take up to 60 minutes before the pill’s full effects kick in. You can help the process along by a sensual massage or other expressions of intimacy.
