Half of men aged 40 to 70 will experience erectile dysfunction, and it’s on the rise in men under 40. But lifestyle changes can help

01 7 Ways... LIBRARY IMAGE C65EKB.jpg

1 Never ignore it

It can be an indication of other health issues, such as high cholesterol, diabetes or heart problems, so encourage your partner to see his GP.

 

2 Lose weight

Research shows that if your partner is overweight, slimming down can help improve sexual function.

 

3 Keep fit

Men who exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes a day are 40 per cent less likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction than sedentary men.

 

4 Relieve stress

Try doing yoga together. Regular practice can help with body image, stress and worries — and you may feel more bonded as a couple.

 

5 Bin the cigarettes

Nicotine causes blood flow to the penis to be reduced, which makes getting and keeping an erection more difficult. If your partner quits, there could be an immediate improvement — and it will be great for his general health.

 

6 Reduce the booze

Too much alcohol can impair the signals between the brain and the genitals, resulting in a lessening of sexual desire. Remind your partner to stick to the recommended maximum of 14 units per week.

 

7 Visit the dentist

Gum disease can be a trigger for erectile dysfunction, so make sure your man goes for regular check-ups.
