My hubby finally got down to business and went to a doctor to have his testosterone checked etc. Because he was new to this clinic, he was given a physician that had more openings in her schedule. He said she appeared to be in her late fifties and seemed like she was annoyed because of his effort to try and improve his situation. She repeatedly warned him of the danger associated with hypertension and taking Viagra. It didn’t matter to her at all that he told her the Viagra was cleared by his cardiologist and that he hardly ever takes it. She even insisted that he call his cardiologist and make sure that he understood. Instead, she made him feel like at his age (54), he should just go somewhere where he can enjoy life and relax. If and when he has good days sexually, enjoy them but otherwise he should just chill out and let it go.
Well Dr. Thanks for nothing, did you ever think that his problem may be causing problems in his marriage?
Did you even consider there is another person in his life who this affects?
Do you not enjoy sex anymore & think you’re doing the little ladies a favor?
Did you even consider that all men are not like dogs running around in heat and this may be about love?
Have you heard of alternative therapies?
Doctor, maybe you should just go somewhere and relax other than in the exam room!
That’s what my husband told me last week. I have a high sex drive.
Never mind that it has been almost a year since we had any kind of meaningful sex (and it’s sad when you can remember the date). He said, “My drive is low and yours is high cause that’s all you talk about.” That is not all I talk about because that would mean we wouldn’t talk at all. I told him that a high sex drive would better describe someone who just had sex yesterday or the day before and ready to go again. But since April last year? That’s high need!!! It’s sickening how men can make you feel like it’s your fault that nothing is happening.
So, I made up my mind never to discuss it again. I haven’t mentioned that dirty word, and have started treating him like my friend and roommate. I’ve been laughing and talking as if everything is fine and moved into another bedroom that I now refer to as “my room.” This must be bothering him because I can see a change in him. He’s actually being more attentive with occasional touches here and there; which I try to ignore, of course. Gotta make a point but I might stay in my new room from now on.
Can anyone relate to this?
I just thought you would like to see where our visitors live.

This is indeed a problem women share worldwide.
That’s the title of an article I just read in Men’s Health magazine, dated May 2012. Unfortunately, some of our partners or spouses fall short in this area.

I keep watching the commercials on television about Cialis, Viagra etc. Ladies, you know the ones with the catchy music, where the man walks in and sees his wife dancing and singing with her headphones on while he lovingly looks on and smiles. Then he walks over and embraces her.
I don’t know about you ladies but I’m not happily dancing and my hubby isn’t being affectionate, even with Viagra. They are selling hope. What many don’t understand is that your man has to first take that pill. Mine went to the doctor only after a lot of threats to find someone to take care of my needs. I really wasn’t but the thought does enter my mind sometimes. Anyway, he tried the medication with still a limited amount of success. Truthfully, I think it was nerves or he needs a stronger dose. So instead of getting an answer from his doc, we’re right back where we started which is doing nothing.
So maybe its just me and my frustration venting at 5 in the morning, but I’m tired of those happy commercials with a cure in a bottle.
He still has to take the damn pill and that’s a chore in itself!
Is it just me? Weigh in.
Yes, I just went there and I can’t believe it. I’m not normally into toys but I had to rethink it. After thinking things were better, I had an awakening. Then while trying to talk about it, (probably a little too much) he had the audacity to sound annoyed while trying to answer !!! So I went looking for outside help and this time I actually completed the purchase. Anyone else done this cause I’m starting to feel like someone else?
Still frustrated, but I found this interesting article on Web MD about a woman’s point of view.
