Men respond differently to each of these pills, so the what is best for one man might not be a good choice for another.

Is it my fault that my partner has erectile dysfunction?

No, your partner’s ED is not your fault!

Many times when a man has erectile dysfunction, his partner feels responsible. They may think they are unattractive or inadequate. Although these feelings are natural, they are misguided.

Erectile dysfunction is a medical problem. There are many things, both physical and psychological, that can cause ED. It has nothing to do with whether or not your partner finds you attractive. It’s important for partners to talk about erectile dysfunction and how it affects their feelings, to avoid damage to their relationship.

If a man is experiencing erectile dysfunction, he needs to talk with his doctor to find out what is causing it, and get medical help.
