Just straight out ask him and talk to him about it. Im sure he has noticed and he probably feels bad and doesn't know how to bring it up either. But it's a million times better to talk openly about it cuz then you can both get everything off your chest and maybe that will help.

Yeah, blood pressure meds can cause that in some men I'm pretty sure. You'll have to speak to him about it. For sure don't make it sound like an attack. Saying that you're unhappy or that he isn't pleasing you will make him defensive and upset. Tell him you've noticed and are concerned it could be a side effect of his medication, and ask him if he agrees.

I mean it could be effecting him now since he's gotten older and mixed with his meds? Maybe see if he can not smoke for a few days-week, and see if it helps. Then you maybe kinda know it could be that.

Right. I know. I should say something. And I definitely wouldn't make it sound like an attack because that's not at all how I truly feel. I am concerned... But it just seems like a hard topic to bring up... "So.. hey... you know how this keeps happening. Think it's your pills?" I don't know... It just doesn't seem like there's an easy way.

I bet it is. I wouldn't know how to approach him either.

It may not be the meds. My husband wasn't on any meds. He was just under a lot of stress... and the stress from not being able to stay up made it worse, it was a cycle. He went to a doctor finally, and they ran tests and everything. He was perfectly healthy.



Stress is a hard thing on a person. Between the extra weight and the stress of a baby on the way, could just be a mental thing.



Ya'll could try things to help him like a p***s pump or a c**k ring. We tried numbing lube but that was a terrible idea, made it worse. But he may be different, never know.

I've found the easiest way to bring up an awkward conversation is when its actually happening... The next time he goes soft and your being intimate just say"do you feel like this happens alot?" And go from there. Alot easier than talking over dinner or something!

my dad is on blood pressure medications and he's been impotent for years.
