Living with permanent erectile dysfunction in 5 points

Living with permanent erectile dysfunction in 5 points outlines the essential considerations in navigating this reality. These tips serve as guiding principles to assist individuals, whether they are in a relationship or facing this situation alone.

  • Healthcare professionals are here for you
    Sexuality is ever-present; it does not disappear with permanent erectile dysfunction. Consult healthcare professionals, such as psychologists or sexologists, for support tailored to your needs. Whether you seek personalized assistance for your mental well-being or guidance in exploring new avenues of intimacy, don’t hesitate to seek help and explore the diverse options available. A multidisciplinary approach could be advantageous in gaining a deeper understanding of your situation.
  • The role of a sexologist
    Sexologists play a vital role in exploring sexual and relational issues. They can accompany individuals or couples dealing with problems or changes in the sexual aspects of their lives, including permanent erectile dysfunction. Their expertise is invaluable when faced with this new reality, and they can assist you in exploring solutions to enhance the quality of your sex life.

  • Sexuality goes beyond erections
    Sexual fulfillment isn’t limited to whether or not you can have an erection.

  • A new reality means new experiences
    Various approaches are available to address permanent erectile dysfunction, ranging from medication to mechanical solutions.
