What are ways to cope with erectile dysfunction (ED)?

ANSWER

To cope with ED, first, be honest with yourself, your partner, and your doctor. Once your ED is out in the open, coping with it will be less stressful.

While you’re being treated, know that a treatment that might work for one person may not work for you, and that the treatment you choose may not work the first time or may not work every time.

Sex therapy helps some couples cope. It may also help to learn from men who have ED, so ask your doctor about support groups.
