Is he scared of marriage because he can not make love ?

My b/f is about to end our relationship because i want to get married and he seems reluctant. He has erectile disfunction due to diabetes but he knows that i m happy the way we are. There are other things we do which is fantastic, so why won t he commit? I told him i can t face us being just friends and he can t cope with never seeing me again. What s going on? I ve been with him for 18 months and known him for about 5 years. Thank you xx

Dear friend,

You need to talk about these things with your boy friend.

You did not mention about your boy friend's age.

Diabetes can cause erectyl dysfunction. By controlling diabetes and giving other medicines, we can make treat the problem.

For that you need to consult a qualified Sexual Medicine / Sexologist

Hi.... I appreciate your concern and your love for your boy friend. As the cause for the erectile dysfunction with your boy friend is diabetes it can be treated and also prevented.  Talk to him and tell him it can be treated... All he needs to do is to follow his diabetic treatment in what ever form that is recommended to him strictly. Once his sugars are under control he will be able to overcome  ED. Avoiding stress is equally important and tell him not to worry.. You can take the help of the sexologist if needed.  One meeting with a doctor may help in boosting his confidence.. All the best..

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
