Getting Older With Peyronie's

1 Comment

Shadow of a couple

My husband had begun to lose confidence in himself. As an aging man because he couldn't hold an erection, then came Peyronie's added to it at first the pain was excruciating and now he has lost all interest in any kind of intimacy.

I do not know how to make him understand as a woman all I truly need is the kissing snuggling and being close. It's been nearly ten years since we've been intimate and I'm way beyond frustrated to add (well, to be perfectly honest that's not all I need) into the mix I had a stroke and am not able to do lots of positions that I used to initiate that we enjoyed so much.

Thank you for listening.

Dear Wandajean

Thank you very much for sharing your story with My Peyronie's readers. It is really helpful to hear the women's point of view.

Unfortunately, we men sometimes forget that sex is not only about having intercourse, it is also about intimacy. And many (including myself) believe that to stop being intimate is more of a risk to any relationship than not being able to have sexual intercourse.

Ten years are a long time for not being intimate. You both may not be able to do the things you used to do but there are other things you can do to stay intimate, to nurture your relationship and feelings for each other.

You two need to talk together about how you both feel. You may even want to seek professional help to guide you through your discussions.

You don't say what your husband has done about his condition. There may be options available to him, e.g. to help him to achieve and maintain erection. Ideally, he should see a doctor and discuss his options. These articles may be useful read at this stage:
