Expert Q & A Answers About erection problems
I have been married for 33 years. For the past several years, I have had problems keeping an erection with my wife. For a long time, she’s made up excuses not to join me in sex. I’ve slept on the couch, been depressed and been on medication. I cheated and told her about it. Now we’re trying to work it out and we’re seeing a therapist, but I can’t seem to get excited by her.

I am 50 years old and too young to give up on sex. What can I do?
