    What meds cause this reaction, if you don't mind my asking?

    We have ED issues and I think are going to miss this month, likewise not finishing the job. I hope it is only a month for you.

    Default Fun February Testing Thread

    I know it's not up everyone's alley and I don't know much about ED reasons (so I'm Not trying to offend anyone or start a debate about this) but have you thought about a *ahem* "visual" help for the boys with the ed issue?

    Just genuinely curious how much you can think outside of the box with an issue such as ED and what sort of things could potentially be done anout it.

    He has gone back on Aropax which is an Antidepressant. He has no problem getting an erection, just finishing. Really hoping it settles down for next cycle.

    I feel your pain. DH is having similar issues at the moment (although not medication related, I wish I knew exactly what the cause was!). So frustrating and I get so anxious about it every time my fertile window rolls around, it has become impossible just to relax and enjoy it anymore.

    Hubby was diagnosed with low testosterone, but once stopping lexapro (also antidepressant) it peaked back up a little. After a few months we are back to how it was, but not taking lexapro still. He was given cialis, similar in a way to Viagra I think, helps getting erection but just no grand finale. He's 32 next month. We see endocrinologist next in march.

    I hope hubby is ok, and you.

    It depends on the cause of the ED issues. Visual aids will help is desire a little low or stressed or perhaps a little anxious. However ED issues can be a physical problem, reaction to medications, low testosterone, ect. Sadly porn can't help with those, but can lighten up the pressure a little for sure.

    We are currently waiting for hubby's endocrinologist (hormone specialist) appointment in march. Previously low testosterone, righted when came off a medication and given a drug to help get erection, but now drug not helping and hubby is struggling to reach ejaculation on his own, which had never been difficult. Think we will miss this month. Fertile window now. Tried last night but no success. Trying to stay relaxed and not stress, but it's hard on both of us. Just so grateful we are stuck like glue in love that this is just another hurdle we will face together, hasn't been easy though.

    If it doesn't resolve, go to the GP. Could be testosterone related, or something else physical happening. Or Psychological, stress? Although usually if erection achieved, grand finale follows even if stressed. It can be hard for men to talk about it, totally understand why. Be patient but encourage him to see dr.

    Could you please put me down for February testing please. Ive started CD1 today, two days early than predicted. cycle days are 27-30 days long, which can be annoying. Testing date will be Feb 14th will be a good Valentines day gift i was almost certain January was the one. Had nausea, boobs were more sore and for longer than usual, frequent urination and felt more tired than usual. This cycle will be our 8th month. I have only used OPK's once but are rather expensive and i wasn't convinced they were accurate. Didn't have any telltale signs of ovulation. I do use an app called clue which gives indication according to my cycle length when i should be ovulating. Going to see the doctor today to clarify a few things and see what she proposes.

    Thanks for that explanation.

    We have our own similar issues, but it's not that he can't reach it himself, he just takes longer than I can handle for it to happen.

    I have issues from a previous lletz procedure so I can only handle a few minutes of actual sex before the pain gets to much so he was struggling to "get the job done" before I couldn't handle it anymore.

    Before we started TTC, He was always been so worried about hurting me that the sex would be at the start and then we would finish everything in a different way.

    Luckily our fix was to basically do a lot more prep work for him before the sex stage happens and then sometimes a visual would help so that I'm not so sore that I have to take a week off and miss the rest of the fertile window!

    I know that men can place such an importance on their masculinity with these things, so hopefully all your men aren't finding it too difficult to deal with. I'm sure that they appreciate your support.
