Things Not to Say to a Man with Impotence Problems

Aug 2, 2008
When your husband or boyfriend has an impotence problem, handling it appropriately is very important. Many men are very sensitive about impotency. This is completely understandable. A person's sexuality often affects a great deal of how they perceive themselves. Your husband or boyfriend's self-esteem could be affected by this impotency problem.

You do need to talk about it when your partner has an impotency problem. You need to be sure that they are getting the help that they need. Some men will avoid getting help. They feel great shame or embarrassment, when there is no need for them to feel this way.

"Why can't you just relax." Some women may think that all a man needs to do is relax, but it is often not quite that easy. Many men deal with impotency because of physical challenges or even medications they are taking. Seeing their doctor to determine if these are an issue will help rule these out or decide if these are indeed the cause of the impotency.

"You don't find me sexy anymore." This is probably the man's worst fear, that his partner will think somehow that he doesn't find her desirable any longer. Impotency has nothing to do with finding someone desirable. It is most often a physical or emotional issue (such as stress). Telling your partner that he doesn't find you sexy anymore simply hurts his feelings.

"You must be having sex at other times to not want it now." Some women may think that if their partner is not ready for sexual activities, he is being satisfied elsewhere. This is an "old wives tale" that deserves to be extinguished. The man with impotency issues is not being unfaithful or even looking at another woman to cause this problem. Bringing this up could simply cause hurt feelings or another type of argument that doesn't need to be had.

"This never happened before." This is a very hurtful thing to say to a man. A woman's sexual drive increases as she ages, generally peaking in her thirties and her forties. A man's sex drive peaks while he is in his late teens and steadily declines. This all has to do with hormones and natural selections way of reproduction. Many men experience impotency as they age at some point in their lifetimes. The most important thing to focus on is that this problem is so often correctable with proper treatment.

When speaking to your husband or boyfriend, you want to be positive and encouraging. Most importantly, you want to encourage him to seek treatment for this problem right away. There are various treatments that exist that can often easily assist with impotency. The solution to this little problem may be as close as the prescription pad on his doctor's desk, if only he will make that appointment to see his doctor!

Encouraging your husband or boyfriend to seek treatment for his impotency issues will help to combat the problems of impotency. Many men face impotency at some point in their lives. They need and deserve the support of their mates during this time. You can truly make a big difference by being caring and understanding when someone you love deals with impotency.
