I am a 56-year-old post-menopausal woman with a healthy interest in sex. I have begun a serious relationship with a 66-year-old man, who is on medication for blood pressure and SSRI medication. He knows that the blood pressure med affects his sex life, but he acts as if there’s no problem. He hates the idea of Viagra and doesn’t want to talk about it.

As my wife goes through menopause, we’re trying to keep a good sex life. What can we do?

I am a 44-year-old male, and my wife and I have enjoyed a very good and regular sex life for about 14 years. However, I’ve had intermittent erectile dysfunction for the past four months...and I think it’s because my 50-year-old wife is going through menopause. It seems like sex is a chore for her and this puts me off. Then I get anxiety and I can’t keep an erection. What should I do? I don’t want to stop having sex with my wife as we get older.
