New relationship: How do I ask if he is already getting help
« on: August 30, 2018, 02:22:49 PM »

I am seeing a guy who has all the symptoms of Peyronie's disease. I don't think he is aware/getting any help or seeing a doctor for it. How do bring it up and ask him to seek help. I don't want to sound mean and I genuinely care.

Hello,

Can you share with us why you believe he has Peyronies? How long have you been together and how well is communication between you on personal issues?

I say bring it up right away in a light way! The beginning of the relationship is a crucial time to set down a solid foundation in communication AND sexual polarity. It's all too easy to leave either of these two things out at the foundations, but you can have them both together if you just decide it. Don't hold back, communicate, but keep it sexy, fun, and compassionate.

Which symptoms? Is he still functional?

I am medico (a student) and hence am able to decipher what the symptoms are and what they translate to.
Thank you @NeoV for advising me to be frank. I brought it up this evening. We looked over the textbook symptoms and he said he experiences every one of them. He didn’t pay much attention and attributed them to him getting old [He’s just 33 though :) ]. He has scheduled a PCP visit tomorrow and we will know more after that.
