One of the most distressing aspects of PPP has to do with having to explain what they are to a partner. Misconceptions surrounding the condition abound and bringing the subject up can be something of a delicate nature. Men in particular find it difficult to talk about health conditions, especially ones related to intimate body parts, but honesty and openness are key ingredients in a healthy relationship and getting past those few awkward moments can reap great rewards.
The first thing to remember is that your partner may never have heard of the condition. Despite effecting around 20% of the male population, this is one of those ailments that is unlikely to be discussed openly due to societal taboos and the unavoidable embarrassment factor. Ignorance in this case is not bliss, but don’t be surprised if your partner has questions about the condition and be prepared to answer them.
Know the condition for what it is. There is an all too human tendency to jump to false conclusions. Your partner may initially fear that PPP is a sexually transmitted infection and therefore a potential sign of infidelity. It’s important that such erroneous assumptions are laid to rest as soon as possible; our website can provide an official resource to allay any doubts your partner might have.
In a similar vein another legitimate (though again erroneous) fear is that PPP can be passed on. Again, it’s important to reassure your partner on this point; PPP is of course not infectious, is not caused by poor hygiene and is far more common than one might think.
Most important of all is that you make decisions on what to do about it together. Talking about intimate body parts with your partner might be difficult at first but it will allow you to arrive at a decision as couple.
