You may have thought about how wonderful it would be to spend your time making love with your special someone. However, as a provider of primary care in Nevada, we believe that it’s not so simple for some people to enjoy the experience of sexual intercourse.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) in men, especially couples, has been quite prevalent recently. As 10% to 20% of men have suffered erectile dysfunction, it’s not a rare issue anymore.
Unfortunately, the more you have anxiety about these things, the more likely you will have sexual difficulties. Many different factors can cause ED, such as health complications or psychological issues, including:
- Relationship problems
- Stress or fear related to sexual activity
- Other mental health issues
An essential step in dealing with this particular cause of psychological ED is opening up the lines of communication with those affected. Acknowledging and being honest about the problem with your partner will relieve some pressure on your shoulders.
However, if both of you cannot communicate effectively, a counselor may be able to help you better understand each other’s needs and strengthen your relationship.
A combination of medical and behavioral therapies can also help address male dysfunction. Essential Clinic has qualified medical professionals to assist men’s health issues and maintain their physical and mental health in Las Vegas, Nevada.
