Talking about erectile dysfunction to your partner is a sensitive issue. Make sure that your partner is at ease when talking about ED.
Erectile dysfunction is known as the problem of man. However, it is ignored that it affects the partner in the equation too (in short both suffer from it). Do you know what connections need? To remain alive successfully, it needs the flame of attraction to continue over a long period. However, not sure, but erectile dysfunction might be a roadblock to the relationship (sometimes the marker of its death). Here we bring you women's point of view on erectile dysfunction and how communication can solve it.
Communicating about erectile dysfunction is often known as an innate willingness to skirt the issue (sometimes fraught with embarrassment with one’s partner). With an outlook towards resolving, the issue needs to be discussed, without affecting the relationship (because love binds it).
How to Talk to Your companion about ED?
The Accurate time
When you are talking to your companion about erectile dysfunction, don’t jump to their bones. Discuss the issue at ease while choosing the most appropriate time. To discuss the issue at hand, your partner must be in a relaxed state of mind (as ED is a sensitive issue). Remember that you cannot bring out this issue in front of his parents and friends.
Loving, Caring and Sharing
Your spouse is experiencing erectile dysfunction! We all know that the news is unsettling. But you need to be supportive and assure him that he can share all his anxieties with you. Let him know that you care about him and don't play any blame game. Do you know that a man suffering from erectile dysfunction can be affected psychologically and emotionally? Do not try to become his agony aunt. Try to be patient and do not force him to open up to you.

Motivation and Encouragement
Encourage your partner to keep trying, accompany him for his visits to the doctor (and be supportive). Devise a plan to deal with the situation and research on erectile dysfunction treatment option together.
Layout your cards
Talk to your partner about their sexual wishes and desires. Keep in mind that erectile dysfunction does not mean that you cannot satisfy each other (or indulge in other sexual activities). Have an open discussion where you can talk to your partner about your expectations in your relationship (vice versa).
Stick to the Subject
Stick to the problem and don't talk about how adversely it will affect the relationship. Without blaming your partner (about erectile dysfunction) remain positive. Talk to your partner about erectile dysfunction, but before you broach the topic, make sure you have enough information (as an ill-informed discussion will only add to your woes).
