Discussing ed problems with your partner

Discussing ed problems with your partner

Discussing ed problems with your partner

Communication plays one of the most important roles in any sexual relationship.

For most men who begin to detect the signs of erectile dysfunction, it can be a big challenge to admit it to their partner about the problem.

Emotions may run high and you may feel nervous or awkward and get stressed about your partner's reaction to it.

But always remember that your problem is also affecting your partner. And a clear discussion may be the first step to the diagnosis and treatment of your problem.

Try and get past the initial hesitation and talk it out to your partner. Feeling embarrassed about discussing your problem of erectile dysfunction can make your relationship even worse.

While it is not easy to communicate with your partner about your erection problems, it is imperative that you do so.

Here are a few tips for getting the conversation started.

1. Don't hesitate

Sometimes the most difficult part is just starting the conversation on this subject. Yet you need to explain the issue in plain simple words.

Admitting it your partner can be the first step to getting started on the road to recovery.

Make sure that you and your partner are comfortable and not stressed out at the time you choose to discuss the matter.

It might feel awkward at the beginning but once the conversation flows, it will be much easier for you to explain. Talking frankly about your problem will also increase the chances of winning the emotional support of your partner.

2. Discuss the treatment options

Because of the advancement in medicine, erection problems are much easily treated than ever before.

Once you have opened the discussion on this subject let your partner know that there are treatments available for this problem. This will give her hope and a positive attitude towards the situation.

Having your partner's support in taking the treatment will make it much easier for both of you to deal with it.

3. Be positive

Stay supportive and positive. Be more expressive about your feelings of love and attraction towards her. Let her know you care.

Focus more on emotional intimacy. Sometimes going bravely through such difficulties together makes the relationship even stronger.

Avoiding the issue of impotence will not make it disappear but will just raise the level of tension and frustration in the relationship.

Therefore, it's very important to discuss the issue with your partner and subsequently, seek medical help and counseling as soon as possible.

Keeping these things in mind, you can deal better with the problem of erectile dysfunction and reduce its impact on your relationship.

Your symptoms suggest depression or anxiety disorder. Kindly visit a psychiatrist. Eat well, sleep on time, maintain a regular day structure, meditation, breathing exercises, focus on the task, all these will improve apart from psychiatric treatment.

Your body is carrying about 15 Kgs extra weight. That can be a cause of lack of energy. You may be having personal / professional problems. That can also cause anxiety. Medicine is only a temporary solution. You can't be on such medicine for life. You have to find solutions to your problem and rectify it. Take professional help / counselling. Any drug can be addictive. and tomorrow when you try to get off the med.. your body will show severe reaction. So it will be good if you get help to get over this problem

How can I increase my memory. I forget things after some time. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine.

This is for my 15 years old nephew. He has anxiety problem. Of late, he went to himachal where he was 95% normal. He had only time fixation ie particular work to be done at a particular time. He ate well and loved to have a bath. But he wanted to stay there and not come back to Mumbai. He wanted to stay in Hotels and enjoy himself. His mother forcibly brought him back ultimately. Now he does not eat well, and not had bath since the last 3 months. He eats only Once a day. And he says he will only eat and have bath once he is out of Mumbai. He speaks in code language with his mother saying that he feels scared if she speaks in normal language. But he speaks in normal language ie English and hinder with outsiders. He refuses to open his eyes at home saying he feels scared but opens his eyes once he is out in The restaurant. He is paranoid about home and the areas around. How he is going to behave at a particular place ie home is pre planned by him. Eg: closing eyes, not letting others speak at home etc. We have a cordial home environment and this boy is the only child in the house. Thus pampered. Kindly let us know. We are worried.

Yes, he is paranoid as well as obsessed personality. Needs to be counseled on regular interval along with oral medication. So, please consult a good Psychologist. Of course, you can also take medicines from a homoeopath nearby to your place (as there is no side -effects of homoeopathic medicine)!

I am 32 years old. I am suffering from laziness and depression whole day. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Don? T submit to it. If you find the fight is too much, then go for counseling first and then for medication. The combination is ideal to combat this condition. This is the only condition were you are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too, if you are not already married. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings.

Hi lybrate-user, good question. Its a course of depression. Like for eg; if you start taking antibiotics you may feel good just after a day but you have to complete the course of 3 or 7 days as suggested by doctor. Same way when you start taking anti depressants you may find relief within 4-6 weeks total relief but you have to complete the full course which for the first episode is usually of 1 year and if you fail to do so, you may relapse. You listen to your doctor. Do not worry.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

He definitely has some problem. See I can understand your parents response but you being elder brother please take him to a hospital to a psychiatrist and psychologist so as to ascertain the cause of this kind of behaviour and then act accordingly. Your brother needs intelligent handling. He should not be scolded and he needs friendly interactions where he should be reminded about his problem. Keep his diet up healthy giving him more proteins, milk,curd, fruits and Vegees.

Dissociative Amnesia - 9 Ways To Deal With It!

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Pune
Dissociative Amnesia - 9 Ways To Deal With It!

Everyone forgets things once in a while, but for some people this forgetfulness can be a sign of a bigger problem. People who cannot remember important information about their life may be said to be suffering from dissociative amnesia. This can cause memory loss of specific events and themes or make the person forget a majority of their identity and history in general. This dissociative disorder can be mild or be severe enough to affect the daily functioning of a person.

Lost memories cannot be brought back with treatment but treatment can help a person suffering from this disorder reconnect with people and feel secure in their surroundings. The treatment of this condition must be customized to the person’s symptoms. Some forms of treatment for dissociative amnesia are:

  1. PsychotherapyThis is also known as talk therapy as it largely involves conversations between the patient and doctor. It is the main form of therapy used to treat this condition and can also act as an umbrella for many other types of therapy.
  2. Cognitive behavioral therapyCognitive therapy focuses on changing the person’s behaviour. It focuses on thinking patterns and feelings that are harmful to the person self-image.
  3. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing: Dissociative amnesia is often associated with traumatic events. In such cases eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is used to address symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorders such as nightmares and flashbacks.
  4. Dialectic behaviour therapy: People who have suffered from abuse or trauma may have severe personality disturbances which may include dissociative amnesia. In such cases, dialectic behaviour therapy may be used.
  5. Family therapyDissociative amnesia is often a recurrent condition and affects not only the life of the patient but that of his or her family as well. Hence therapy for the entire family is often necessary.
  6. Creative therapies: Cognitive therapy includes art therapy, music therapy etc. This allows patients to explore different ways of expressing their thoughts and feelings.
  7. MeditationMeditation and practising relaxation techniques make people more aware of their internal stress levels and equip them to better handle their symptoms.
  8. Clinical hypnosis: When being used to treat this disorder, hypnosis allows a person to express thoughts and emotions they may have hidden form their conscious minds. Through hypnosis the patient can achieve a different state of consciousness through relaxation techniques, concentration and attention.
  9. Medication: Dissociative amnesia cannot be treated through medication but antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication can help deal with the disorder by calming the mind. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Dear lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.
