The definition of a quality sexual relationship varies for each individual couple. If you are specifically asking about the ability of your husband to have and maintain an erection, then this depends upon his primary disease. For example, diabetic patients frequently have kidney failure and also impotence from the same etiology. Your physician can prescribe medications, such as viagra, (sildenafil) that help.
