How To Manage Compulsive Sexual Behaviour?

How To Manage Compulsive Sexual Behaviour?

One of the emerging psychiatric disorder that has significant medical and psychiatric consequences is compulsive sexual behaviour or hypersexuality, is an obsession with sexual thoughts in which people cannot manage their sexual behaviour. It may involve a commonly enjoyable sexual experience as self-stimulation which becomes an obsession. The person suffering from the condition may also get involved in sexual behaviours that are outside the bounds of commonly accepted conduct like paying for sex or having extramarital affairs.

Untreated compulsive sexual behaviour damages one’s self-esteem, health, job, relationships and career. However, with treatment and self-help, one can manage compulsive sexual behaviour and learn to manage one’s urge. Males are more likely to be unfaithful than females because they have stronger sexual impulses and weaker self-control. Compulsive sexual behaviour symptoms vary in type and severity. During intense sexual impulses, one feels as if they're beyond control. This is the first and the most common symptom as the patient uses compulsive sexual behaviour as an escape route for problems like loneliness, depression, anxiety and stress. One has trouble establishing and maintaining emotional closeness, even if one is married or in a committed relationship.

The treatment for compulsive sexual behaviour involves psychotherapy and medications. A primary goal of treatment is to help one manage urges and reduce excessive behaviours while maintaining healthy sexual activities. If one has compulsive sexual behaviour, one may need treatment for mental health condition. People with compulsive sexual behaviour often have alcohol or drug abuse problems or a mood disorder such as depression.

Counselling sessions can help one learn how to manage one’s compulsive sexual behaviour. Intensive treatment programs for compulsive sexual behaviours focus on identification of core triggers and beliefs about sexual addiction. It assists in development of healthier choices and coping skills to minimize urges and deal with the preoccupation of sexual addiction. Psychodynamic psychotherapy can prove to be very useful as it focuses on increasing one’s awareness of unconscious thoughts and behaviours, and developing new insights into their motivations. Resolving conflicts using this therapy is also recommended. The other kind of treatment program is cognitive behavioural therapy. This therapy helps one to identify unhealthy, negative beliefs and behaviours and replace them with healthy, positive ones. Family therapy and couples therapy may restore trust, minimize shame and guilt thus establishing a healthy sexual relationship between partners.

Medications include anti-depressants like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, mood stabilizers and anti-androgens have also been used to treat compulsive sexual behaviour. Anti-androgens are prescribed as it reduces the biological effects of sex hormones in men thus reducing sexual urges. Luteinizing hormone is also prescribed as it reduces obsessive sexual thoughts by reducing the production of testosterone. Anti-seizure medications, naltrexone, and medications which decrease male hormones have been found to decrease the compulsive urges and impulses associated with sexual addictions for some sufferers.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I always daydream while walking taking classes etc, and I always think something supernatural will happen and save me from my current situation is this some kind of disease?

I always daydream while walking taking classes etc, and I always think something supernatural will happen and save me...
This is not a disease and could be a defense mechanism to evade looking at your reality and shirking responsibility for your actions. It sometimes borders on magical thinking and the ‘Santa Claus’ wish that somehow your problems will be solved by someone who has great magical powers. As you know that is a pipedream and life has to be faced head on and it involves hard work. So roll up your sleeves and get down to brass-tacks. Nothing comes easy in life, and if it ever does then, ‘easy comes, easy goes’. You should not waste time dreaming like so except when you are ruminating on some bright idea that needs a final flourish of brilliance. Organize your life and establish some clear goals and set about achieving them, one by one. A schedule of steps to reach your goals is also advisable. If not, you could become dangerously disconnected from reality, in the long run.

Hello, having similar bld grps does not cause any probleems in pregnancy. The chance of you conceiving per cycle is about 20-30% even if everything is normal, so do not stress out. Make sure you do not put on any weight. If you do not conceive in another 6 months or so you cud see a gynaec who cud then run some tests.

hello The persistent feeling of sadness or loss of interest that characterizes major depression can lead to a range of behavioral and physical symptoms. These may include changes in sleep, appetite, energy level, concentration, daily behavior, or self-esteem. 1. Get in a routine. .2.Set goals. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. 3. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. 4. eat green vegetables , fish , avocado . 5.get enough sleep . 6. take homeopathic treatment for complete cure . 7.Challenge negative thoughts. 8. Do something new. 9. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. consult me .

I was in a relationship with a girl. Suddenly it ended in an abrupt manner and I am not able to take the depression .I m not able to focus on my internship and work and I feel stressed out always ,my moral has come down I feel pathetic abt myself, and my mood is always off.

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

How To Control Panic Disorder?

How To Control Panic Disorder?

A panic attack is an intense and sudden feeling of fear that may lead the person to lose control and fear that he is dying. The intensity of the attack normally hits for around ten minutes though the symptoms may linger on after that. It normally occurs without prior signals and is typically unrelated to any of the underlying health troubles.

Ways to Control Panic Attack Symptoms-

If you are experiencing signs of panic attacks, then it is imperative to undergo proper medical treatment to find out any deeper medical problem related to these symptoms. If there is no definite cause, which is required to be treated, then there are various ways of controlling the panic attacks.

  1. Proper education: If panic attacks are left untreated for a long time, then it may lead to panic disorder, which includes frequent and recurrent panic attacks within a short span. So, it is important to have proper knowledge for combating panic disorders. You will have to understand how the fear centre of the brain works in order to recognise what panic disorder is. It is imperative to understand that the signs of panic disorder have no connection with any severe illness.

  2. Calm breathing: When a person is hit with a panic disorder, it is natural to take short, shallow breaths. You will have to take control of your breath and try to create a slow stream of air within and breathe it out, which will prevent hyperventilation and an accumulation of carbon-dioxide in the blood. It is recommended to practice slow breathing in a normal state of mind, so that you have a good hold over the technique which would come in handy when a panic attack occurs. You will have to breathe in for five seconds and hold the breath for one second before you exhale it out, spanning through four seconds. Repeat the process several times until you start experiencing a soothing feel.

  3. Muscle relaxation: Then you must try to learn how to relax the body by tensing and then relaxing different muscles, which will reduce the overall anxiety and stress levels causing panic attacks. You can start working on the muscles of your feet and then slowly move on to the forehead. You will have to tighten each muscle group while taking a deep breath, hold it for a few moments and release it while breathing out.

  4. Hypnothearapy: Hypnotherapy is very efficient to get rid of acute anxiety quickly. The effect of a one-time direct hypnosis has an effect of about 48 to 72 hours. Afterwards, the effect slowly disappears, unless it is supplemented with self-hypnosis or other therapeutic interventions. It is thus an ideal technique for concrete situations like performance anxiety prior to an exam, presentation or job interview within 48 hours. Self-hypnosis is a powerful tool to teach a client to stop their anxiety themselves with the help of  self-hypnosis exercise.  

  5. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): CBT helps anxious patients to recognize and work through the negative and worrying thoughts which (subconsciously) cause the panic attacks, stress, and anxiety. The therapist will help the patient to “defuse” these negative thoughts and will also help the client in finding more valuable thoughts which do not lead to anxiety or panic. Afterwards, the patient will be requested to practise these positive thoughts and to train themselves in finding negative thoughts which need to be invalidated.

In case you think you are suffering from a panic disorder, it is imperative to waste no time and talk to a psychologist without further delay.
