Impotency always seems to be a top conversation when it comes to men’s health, but what about the women in the situation? Erectile dysfunction is obviously tough for men to deal with, but that doesn’t mean they are the only ones coping with the effects of ED. Both the man and woman in a relation need to know and understand what the other is feeling.
Women are put in a confusing situation when their partner is dealing with impotency. They find themselves wanting sexual release and unable to get it, as well as being unsure of how to approach the problem. Will I hurt his feelings and harm his masculinity if I bring it up? “Is it my fault?” Will our relationship ultimately suffer and lead me to want other men? Questions like these are flowing through the minds of both the men and women dealing with a relationship that includes impotency and shouldn’t be ignored.
Any sexual condition will have a strong affect on both partners, not just the one whose body happens to be providing the problem. This means that couples need to go back to the tried and true solution to all problems: communication.
It is heard all the time that communication is the best way to keep a relationship strong and valuable. Women, express that you understand his issues, that you only want to help him overcome it, and that he is no less of a man for any hurdles you both face in the bedroom.
Men, your partner may feel at times that she is to blame, let it known that your impotency is not driven by the fact that you aren’t sexually attracted to her. Don’t give up after a few failed romp sessions, work with your partner towards overcoming impotency.
Always remember that sex is not the only sensual way to keep your relationship hot. Until the problem is treated, find other ways to keep the bedroom steamy, most likely it will only lead to a more fulfilling relationship in the end.
