Let’s face it; being in a relationship is hard enough without having to deal with a big problem. Sometimes it doesn’t matter if you have been married for decades; a problem like erectile dysfunction could be a deal breaker. This particular disorder not only affects the man in the relationship but also the significant other in many ways.
Sexual intimacy is a big part in a healthy functioning relationship. When a man finds himself not being able to perform it can be detrimental for him as well as for his partner. His partner may feel as though they are just not attractive anymore or like they are just not enough for him. They may also feel like he may be cheating or “getting it” somewhere else since he isn’t able to perform when he is with them. This can lead to self esteem issues in the partner and even sometimes depression.
When a partner is feeling like this with their significant other that is suffering from ED they may actually end up pushing them away. The best thing to do in a situation like this is to talk about it. It may be somewhat embarrassing at first but it will benefit the pair in the long run. It will especially benefit the partner knowing that they are not doing anything wrong and they are still as attractive as ever.
Now that you know how it affects your partner it might help you think twice about getting help. The kind of help that you need to put everyone back on the same page and keep them on the up and up, literally. Getting the help and knowing where to find it is the easy part, actually asking for it may be slightly more difficult. Think of it this way, once you get the help you are not only helping yourself but your partner as well which could lead to a happier and more appreciative relationship.
