4 Ways to Support Your Partner Who has ED Symptoms

Supporting your partner who struggles with ED can make all the difference for him.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is common. As many as 30 million men in the US alone suffer from some form of ED. A recent study found that 1 in 4 new cases of ED occurs in men younger than 40. As common as this issue is, people often have difficulty talking about it, both men and their partners.

But you went looking for this article to support your partner – well done! A common problem with ED is the frustration, embarrassment, and shame a man feels for experiencing it, which typically leads to experiencing ED more often. A supportive partner responding lovingly who wants to try out positive strategies can make all the difference. Keep reading to learn about our ways to support your partner who has ED symptoms.

The Symptoms are Not Anyone’s Fault

Many partners believe they are at fault for their man’s inability to achieve or maintain an erection. If he is with you, there is usually a good reason for it. Most times, the man’s feelings are so intense he has difficulty relaxing. There are all sorts of reasons for a man to experience ED, including stress, health, diabetes, hypertension, and many others.

Men often invest too much self-worth in their ability to please their partner. Many men feel inadequate if they are unable to get and keep an erection. Explore his thoughts and feelings, knowing that he is probably in a vulnerable emotional place. 

Express Loving Support

Reinforce your empathy with your man. Your affection and patience will go a long way in disrupting any thoughts he might have that he’s upset you or let you down. He may feel you resent him, are dissatisfied with him, or want a man who never experiences ED. 

Even when in this situation, partners who receive acceptance and positivity may struggle to accept it. These intensely vulnerable moments are opportunities for personal and romantic growth. Offer to be present while lovingly exploring his thoughts and feelings instead of trying to fix an issue.

Other forms of Intimacy

Sex is one of the most basic ways a man emotionally connects with his partner. When erectile problems come up, a man can be emotionally confused and frustrated. Finding other ways to be physically intimate can help de-emphasize the need for an erection. Some of these ways include:

  • Massages
  • Cuddling
  • Kissing
  • Have him focus on making you feel good

Encourage Proactive Steps for Him to Improve his Health

ED can begin or become worse with unhealthy habits such as smoking, drinking alcohol, or not exercising. Kindly asking your partner to break bad habits can be as simple as addressing it and making date nights which include healthy activities. Regular exercise is good for his body and erectile health. Plus, exercise can help cut down on stress and improve his cardiovascular status. A relaxed body and mind will do wonders for a more relaxed time in the bedroom.
