Re: Sex life in trouble!!
"Men's Clinics" can be sketchy. Often they have a small playbook. It's often all about the penis and little else. Not that your choice is that way. I do not know.
Going to a GP, a urologist, and endocrinologist, and a psychologist covers most of the bases. While it is a significant amount of time to do so, each has a specific set of skills and looks at the issue from different angles.
You are on a journey. It is rare that you'll find the answer by going to one place, especially one that is peddling Viagra, etc., on its homepage. You want to find out if the issue is psychological in nature, physical, or a combination of the two.
Have you had any traumatic events, aside from your ED, either physical in nature or psychological? For instance, I had a patient who witnessed a fatal motorcycle accident, with a female victim horribly mangled as a result. Years later, he started suffering from sporadic incidents of erectile dysfunction. After some time, we realized that the victim was wearing the exact same earrings as those that his wife bought and wore occasionally when they were having sex. We figured out that the earrings were the issue within a few sessions, but it took much longer for us to connect them to the victim of the accident.
Of course, the physical issues are often, but not always, easier to treat, but going to a "Men's Health" clinic would not be my first recommendation, as many have a one-size-fits-all approach. As I said, I don't know anything about your choice of clinics, but the page that you linked to didn't give me much confidence.
Hang in there. If you don't feel like you're getting good treatment from one source, move to another. It's your life.
Edit: Make sure that you give your wife extra attention! She may be having issues as well because of this, such as insecurity, or performance anxiety. You need to be reassuring and attentive, both in and out of the bedroom. Involve her in your healing process, as she may be one of the keys to success. Do not keep her in the dark. Two became one, remember? You could end up solving your problem, but leave her in need of healing herself.
