The Connection Between Erectile Dysfunction And Depression

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Jodhpur
The Connection Between Erectile Dysfunction And Depression

Being unable to deal with erectile dysfunction can cause men to lose their self-esteem, feel angry, anxious and frustrated, or even lose interest in sex altogether. This can threaten their relationships and may even result in depression.

Erectile dysfunction is treatable, but the time before and during treatment may be difficult. Here is some advice to assist you and your partner in getting your sex life back on track.

The Connection Between Erectile Dysfunction and Depression

Think of the brain as a highly sensitive sex organ. Sexual desire starts in the brain and works its way down. That's because of special brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters. These chemicals increase communication between brain cells and trigger more blood flow to the sex organs. The problem is, with depression and other mood disorders, the brain circuits that communicate using these chemicals don't function properly.

Many men and women with depression tell of having low or no sexual desire. And that puts a tremendous strain on intimate relationships.

Diagnosing Erectile Dysfunction and Depression:

Erectile dysfunction is a very common problem as about 50% of men above 50 years of age suffer from it. Therefore, it is crucial to recognize depression when it is part of the problem. Here is how depression is diagnosed when it is known you have erectile dysfunction:

  1. Loss of Sexual Desire
  2. Erectile dysfunction starts happening after a traumatic event like loss of a job or of a loved one
  3. Feelings of stress, anxiety or frustration
  4. Pessimistic outlook to life

Coping with Erectile Dysfunction and Depression:

  1. Antidepressants: Antidepressants are used to treat depression, however some antidepressants worsen erectile dysfunction, therefore it is crucial that you explicitly explain your condition to your doctor.
  2. 2. Therapy: Therapy is performed by a licensed mental health expert who will identify and help you overcome all the issues which are depressing you.

If you wish to discuss on any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist and ask a free question.

From last 2 years or so I have a partial loss of very recent memory.Like don't remember current movies I have watched clearly or the story.Get blank at times.Even face problem with dates and numbers to some extent.Though it is not serious but want to know if this wont get aggravated and what to do.No issues with past memories.

You may be under some stress from the last two years and have not dealt with it as yet. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory (of which you say you have no problem) is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

How is his performance in school? how is his behavior otherwise? at 13 your child is at a very fragile age and will need to be handled carefully. Make sure that you show keen interest in activities that he likes. If possible, participate in them. This will help you establish a rapport with him and he' s more likely to take you seriously if he sees that you' re trying to understand him.

Indeed you must be going through a lot of pain now. Your gf has moved on. Yes it's going to hurt for sometime, you don't have to think about forgetting her, you just have to accept that she has left and is no longer an option for you. You must be feeling angry at her for going away but it appears more as sadness in the moment. Begin with removing any object, gift or pic of her etc that reminds you of her from your possession. You can also avoid going to cafes or eateries or parks etc that both of you would have frequent, for sometime. It's important to remind yourself that your exams and career is what will be useful for your future. So collect yourself and prepare for your exams because the loss of time will hurt you more than loss of your gf after few years. Wish you all the best for your exams!

Alcohol - How It Affects Your Health?

MBBS, DM - Cardiology, MD
Cardiologist, Hyderabad
Alcohol - How It Affects Your Health?

If you are a heavy drinker and consume excess alcohol, you may face severe consequences related to short-term and long-term health. Alcohol has several negative impacts and affects on your heart. Although occasional drinking does not cause much harm, excess drinking may lead to many heart complications. There are chances of the development of cardiovascular diseases in an alcoholic person.
Alcohol affects the heart in several ways. Binge drinkers are more prone to face these complications. A person who drinks alcohol regularly, drinks very fast and drinks much more than the recommended consumption limit during a single session is called a binge drinker.

Here the ways in which alcohol affects your heart:

  1. Alcohol weakens the heart muscles: Heavy drinking for a long span of time tends to weaken the heart muscles. A condition known alcoholic cardiomyopathy may be caused. When the heart gets weakened, proper contraction gets disrupted and the heart is unable to pump sufficient amount of blood. Due to this, a person may experience certain symptoms such as tiredness, irregular heart rhythm, shortness of breath and swelling of the feet and legs. This can also lead to a heart failure.
  2. Alcohol affects your heart beat rate: Binge drinking and regular drinking over a long period of time may affect the rate of the heart beat or how quickly the heart beats. Alcohol may cause the heart to beat too fast, and irregular beating is observed. This is a condition known as arrhythmias, which may have grave consequences on your health. If you are not a regular drinker but drink too much in a day, you could face this condition.
  3. Alcohol can lead to high blood pressure and also cause a stroke: Binge drinking leads to increased blood pressure, also known as hypertension. The blood vessels become stiff, and this causes the pressure to rise in the arteries and veins. Heavy consumption of alcohol may also trigger several stress hormones to be released, which cause a constriction in the blood vessels. This leads to increased blood pressure. Hypertension may lead to a heart attack or stroke.

In order to reduce the negative impacts of alcohol on your heart and overall health, you must practice drinking in moderation. You must not drink more than fourteen units of alcohol in a single week. Consume these fourteen units in three to four parts instead of consuming it all at once. You should give gaps and avoid regular drinking. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

Dear lybrate user. This phenomenon is pretty common and there is nothing to worry. Not only you, everyone in your household are so because no one likes things going wrong. But if the depressive mood is more than normal you need counseling and life style changes. Your fear could be linked to your depressive mood and both could be due to anxiety disorder. Psychotherapy should help you. Take care.

The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance, like your question seeks. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. The diet includes eating foods with potential antihypertensive activity like fresh fruits and vegetables (amla juice, beetroot garlic and radish), whole grains, milk, etc and lowering the intake of salt and processed foods. : Probiotics, Bananas, Citrus fruits, Papaya, Berries, Avocado, Potatoes, Leafy veggies, Beetroot, Peas and beans, & Radish are all good foods for you.

Try to recondition the way you think about your life: know your strengths and weaknesses. We all make mistakes. Accept compliments and compliment yourself. Use criticism as a learning experience. Try to stay generally cheerful and have a positive outlook on life.
