Men affected by ED often avoid intimacy and sex with their partner. Suffering in silence is not a good solution and can make things even worse. Talking about ED isn’t easy and may be embarrassing, but it’s worth the effort and helps to avoid misunderstandings.

Together, you can deal with the issue effectively and discuss the next steps. ED can have many different causes and can also be an indicator of other health problems. Therefore, it is essential that your partner consults a physician. You should encourage and support him in this situation. ED can be treated in many ways.
