Husband Late 40’s Having Trouble with ED, Love Life Suffering, Should I Suggest Viagra?

Viagra Question

I’m married to a man in his late 40s with whom I’ve enjoyed a healthy sex life until the last few months. He tries but is finding it difficult to get and keep an erection. Needless to say, our love life has suffered. Is there any way I can help? Should I suggest that he take Viagra or one of the other ED drugs?


Answer

It has been observed that every case of erectile dysfunction has at least two victims: the man suffering from impotence and his partner who suddenly faces the loss of a fulfilling sex life because of ED. You can support your husband by being as understanding about his erectile problems as possible. Together, you can work toward finding a solution.

If your spouse’s ED symptoms are caused by insufficient blood flow to the penis, it’s likely that Viagra or one of the other ED drugs can help.

If the impotence is physiological in origin but doesn’t respond to treatment with Viagra, your family doctor can discuss other options that might help your husband to resume relatively normal sexual relations. Such alternatives include penile injection therapy, penile implants, and vacuum erection devices.

If the causes of his impotence are psychological in origin, the doctor might refer your husband to a psychological counselor who specializes in treating sexual dysfunction caused by depression, anxiety, or stress.

Perhaps the biggest gift you can give your husband as he seeks to overcome his erection problems is your understanding and willingness to partner with him in searching for a solution.
