Our expert says:
There are several risk factors for erectile difficulties in your husband's case: high blood pressure (and the medication thereof), high cholesterol, stress and anti-depressant medication. I would recommend that you discuss this situation with your GP to see something like Viagra, Cialis or Levitra (the pills that help with erections) would be useful/safe. Given the difficulties you describe he must NOT stop the medication as he could be in grave risk of serious health problems, but it could be that the occasional addition of the pills above could assist.
That said, I must also emphasis that an erect penis does not have to be the 'be all and end all' of sex and sexual satisfaction. Perhaps this would be a good time to explore different sexual practices (e.g. oral stimulation, mutual pleasuring of various sorts) and possibly include the use of sex toys if you like the feeling of penetration...?
