How To Talk To Your Doctor About ED
(BlackDoctor.org) — Talking about ED can be difficult. When you meet with your doctor, you might use a phrase like “I’ve been having problems in the bedroom” or “I’ve been having erection problems.” Remember that a healthy sex life is part of a healthy life. Don’t feel embarrassed about seeking help. ED is a medical problem, and your doctor treats medical problems every day.
If talking with your doctor doesn’t put you at ease, ask for a referral to another doctor. Your doctor may send you to an urologist—a doctor who specializes in sexual and urologic problems.
Your partner may want to come with you to see the doctor. Many doctors say ED is easier to treat when both partners are involved.
To find the cause of your ED, your doctor will take a complete medical history and do a physical exam.
