Erectile dysfunction (ED) can cause a tremendous amount of strain for both partners in a relationship. Both people can feel insecure, angry, and stressed from a loss of sexual intimacy. Discover a new way to restore erectile function by renewing the bond between you and your partner.
- Find a way to rekindle intimacy in the relationship. This doesn’t always mean sexual intimacy! Rebuild your friendship by praying together, finding a new hobby, or having a conversation about sparking a deeper and more intimate relationship with each other.
- Create a health plan. When partners create plans together, they are more likely to fulfill health goals. Drinking less alcohol, quitting nicotine use, and losing weight can sometimes help restore erectile function in men.
- Have a conversation and do not rush things. Have an honest conversation with your partner about ED and mental health. ED can often stem from psychological factors including anxiety and stress. Read our post about talking to your partner about ED.
