My husband has recently became impotent. I am so shocked that this has happened to us. I really don't know what to do. We have a really big age difference between us. He thinks that I will leave him because of this, but I keep telling him that our marriage is more than just sex, even though sex is very big part of our marriage. We want to have more children. Does being impotent mean that he can no longer produce children? I just don't know what to do. :?
No, it does not mean you can't have children. It's a functional problem - not a sperm problem. I would suggest talking to your doctor. There are many solutions to this problem. First off, is it psychological or physical? Has he been tested gor diabetes? Is he older? If it's physical, viagra would probably do the trick. If it is psychological (like anxiety, stress) counselling could help.
Figure out what the nature of the impotence is, and talk to your doc. I would confidently say you could get him back "up" and running.
Wow, it sounds like my story is exactly as yours. Me and my partner also have a big age difference. I'm 25 years old and he is 49. I've even had people say that he is old enough to be my father and it's true. My dad is 2 years younger than him, but after two failed relationships with young guys I didn't care anymore. In fact what hurts the most is that we just started our relationship and I have not yet had the chance to know what making love to him feels like. I feel like i'm dying here, because my attraction to him at this point is so strong. I want to be able to express my love for him sexually and at this point is impossible. I have a feeling that he has something wrong with his prostate because he tried the highest dosage of viagra and nothing happened and he had told me that when he was in prison he got stabbed in that area but so far is only taking a pill in order to not leak urine. I've told him to see a doctor, but he doesn't have another appointment until almost the end of next month. I hate waiting and I have a feeling that if he needs surgery, the wait will be even longer. I really need support right now. To make matters worse, we both suffer from mental issues and so I can't even please myself by getting an orgasm. We actually met in the hospital and got to know each other there, so we are both on anti-depressants and other mood stabilizing drugs, but when I read the info about viagra, it indicated there that it should take way the side effects of impotence when you wish to have sex, so I know that although that may be part of a factor, it's not what is really wrong. He has other medical problems but none of them (from what I read) affect your sexuality. Please help!
I hate taking showers in jail, once they find out you had a healthy sexual life. They burn in envy and try to take that away from you, at times of personal weakness such as when your naked with 15 - 20 other men. It takes one swift move to render your penis useless for life. In prison they will never tend to wounds to your privates in time, time that could have saved your future sex life.
If your confined in prison and marked...the 1st thing they will do is take your only thing from you...your sexual functionality.
Its sick and frightening.
