Our expert says:
I would recommend that you seek the assistance from you local General Practitioner – he/she will be able to provide you with medical advice as well a recommendations with regards the correct medication needed. Several emotional, psychological and stress factors could also contribute to the experience of erectile dysfunction. Psychologically the fear in anticipation of a reoccurrence a “failing penis” increases the probability of it happening. The assistance of a professional counselor could be valuable in guiding you both in dealing with this in a constructive manner. Try to focus on your journey and enjoying the sexual intimacy and closeness and less on whether the penis will perform in the end.
