Talk to Someone Who’s Been There
ED may be a medical condition, but you’ve already discovered its effects spill over into other aspects of your life. That’s something that’s difficult to understand unless you’ve been there yourself.
Patient educators are men who have taken control of their ED with a penile implant. They understand how erectile dysfunction can lead to depression, anxiety, and even low self-esteem and are now enjoying satisfying sexual experiences once more.55 If you need to know more about what it’s like to have sex after a penile implant, these men can answer your questions.
A Partner’s Perspective on ED
If you’re in love with a man suffering from ED, it’s easy to become so focused on meeting your partner’s needs that you forget to care for yourself. Erectile dysfunction can place a strain on even the strongest relationship, so it’s normal to feel anxious or uncertain about what the future will hold.
The Coloplast Patient Educator Program also includes the spouses and partners of men who have been successfully treated for their ED with a penile implant. It’s understandable if you’re hesitant to discuss your relationship issues with your friends, but the women in the Patient Educator Program can answer questions you might have about how to communicate with your loved one throughout the process or how your spouse or partner’s penile implant will affect your sex life.
