My ex had that too. The nerve damage that can be caused by an uncontrolled BGL is nasty. It can effect all extremities including the penis.
Is your husband’s diabetes under control? Does he take oral meds or insulin injections? How often does he test his blood? Does he eat an appropriate diet?
I don’t really understand what a “sporadic” sex life is, do you mean sex very infrequently? How often is that? I guess it just becomes a habit after a while, and some people are comfortable with that for a long, long time. I have know couples who have not had sex for thirty years, and I guess that is their business. If they are happy with that.
On the other hand, it’s more common to have mismatched sex drives, usually the man wanting sex often and the woman avoiding it due to myriads of reasons from young children/working outside the home and the associated tiredness, to illness, boredom and general dissatisfaction.
I was lucky with my ex. We both had high sex drives and were both affectionate and talkative. A good combo where ED is concerned. We always slept naked with the bedroom door shut. Some people feel inhibited by young/older children and unexpected noise distractions.
My ex would lose his erection if I said I was uncomfortable with a position. Very frustrating and often led me to not say if I was uncomfortable.
Mostly we made pills/injections part of the foreplay, psyching each other up hours before we were going to bed. I have three daughters so I don’t buy the excuse about children. That is just an avoidance tactic for someone afraid of failure. With love and affection that can be overcome by regular planned intimacy and some successful treamtnet for the ED look at this great pharmacy. We resisted the injections at first (needle in the penis? very appealing – NOT) but in the end tried them in desperation. The results were nothing short of spectacular so of course I thoroughly recommend them!! I used to inject my husband and it was easy once I got it right a couple of times. Some men prefer to do it themselves.
Exploring options can be exciting and can restore some lost intimacy if you are both open to it. Having some designated time alone can be therapeutic to re establishing some lovin’.
Your friend who was funny about the bed wetting needs to grow up. I hope neither she nor her husband have any similar health issues! With 50% of men over 50 have ED, the chances of her having to deal with it eventually are quite high. God help her!
You have found grown up friends now who can talk about any issue without blushing and with a lot of experience behind them! Maturity doesn’t necessarily come with age
all the best
