erectile dysfunction

When it comes to problems in the bedroom, it can be tempting to bury your head in the sand. After all, issues like erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and difficulty getting a partner to orgasm aren’t widely talked about. While most of us men will have no trouble discussing the ins and outs of why our favourite football team is failing this season or why our boss is such a bad manager, when it comes to sexual shortcomings, it’s clear that some of us would rather keep schtum. However, it’s important to recognise that this approach won’t fix any problems you’re having. If you really want to put sexual difficulties to bed, consider the following advice.

Erectile dysfunction

If you can’t get or keep an erection on a regular basis, you are most likely experiencing a condition known as erectile dysfunction (ED). During a one-night stand, it can be an instant mood-killer and, if you’re in a long-term relationship, it has the potential to drive a serious wedge between you and your partner if left unresolved. 

While it’s natural to be anxious about impotence, try to put things into perspective. ED is a common problem. Many men have been in the same position so there’s really no need to be embarrassed. Try to relax and open up about the issue with your partner if you think it’s becoming a problem in your relationship. Fortunately, if the condition persists, you can get treatments in the form of ED medicines. However, as noted by , these medicines do not cure the root cause of the condition so it’s important to have regular check-ups to ensure you don’t have problems with your heart or hormones. It’s also a good idea to seek counselling if you suspect that the underlying cause of your ED is psychological. 

Ejaculation issues

From doing it too soon to not being able to do it at all, there are a host of different problems you can experience related to ejaculation. If you’re concerned, seek the advice of a trained medical professional. Don’t delay in arranging a consultation out of embarrassment; remember that medical professionals understand the impact that ejaculation issues can have on quality of life and sexual intimacy and will be happy to help resolve the problem. There are plenty of different tactics and treatments you can try to help you get over this issue and put your love life back on track.

Orgasm problems in your partner

If your partner is having difficulty reaching orgasm on a regular basis, you may feel like you’re failing somehow. Instead of letting the problem drive you apart, use it as an opportunity to improve your intimate life on the whole. Gently encourage your partner to open up to you by asking if there’s anything that they would like you to try to help satisfy them between the sheets. Perhaps, creating a more romantic atmosphere is all that is required or maybe your partner would like more foreplay or clitoral stimulation during intercourse. Without open and clear communication you may never know what it is that’s keeping them from climaxing. If your partner suspects that a medical or psychological issue may be causing their problem, show your support by offering to accompany them to appointment with a GP or counsellor. 

Whether you’re experiencing one of the above difficulties or another sexual problem, shame, embarrassment or denial won’t help you to overcome your issue. Try to be as open and honest as possible with your partner and consider seeking advice from a trusted professional.
