Dating a man with diabetes
“However, Viagra and Levitra can be used discreetly, taken an hour or two before planned activity.” Using products and injections to cause erections might be more of a challenge.The medicated urethral system for erections (MUSE), a small pellet inserted in the penis, can cause mild vaginal itching and burning in female partners.Have it “as soon as intimacy is contemplated,” says Keith Lloyd, MD, professor of urology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine.If you don’t perform well in bed, Lloyd says, let your date know up front and tell them the medical reason why.For patients with significant ED, who are dating, a penile implant is probably best, he says.
“Also, its long duration of action makes it a good choice for men who are dating,” he says.When he or she looks at it, that’s your cue to say, “You know, I’m having this problem, and I’ve been reading this book to see if it could help me.” The best-case scenario: The person offers to help with the problem. “Once you’ve got a psychological overlay of wondering if you’re going to have a problem performing,” Brown says, “you’re almost guaranteed that you’re not going to get an erection.Even if your medical condition is under control, the psychological can override it.” Brown says that among her patients whose ED is caused by psychological factors, 90% improve when they take the focus off their erection and put it on pleasuring their partner.Eventually you’ll probably learn to see when your significant other is acting “like in a hypo”.
However, you might want to avoid suggesting a blood glucose measurement.It gets worse at the grocery store if one has a hypo standing in line with a chocolate bar in hand.They would just want to pay for the candy bar so they can eat it but the queue just won’t MOVE! is when I feel a bit aggressive but I have learned to just eat the candy bar while standing there and pay for the wrap.Be sure to let yours know if you're planning to use it, Lloyd says.
