4 Reasons Why You Should Avoid Stress For A Better Sex Life!

4 Reasons Why You Should Avoid Stress For A Better Sex Life!

Stress and sex is a bad combination, as it is a well known fact that it is because of stress that a person's love and intimate life often suffers. Listed below are few ways in which stress can affect your sex life:

  1. Negative body image: The hormones associated with stress are capable of affecting your metabolism. If you gain weight or feel sluggish, it makes you feel bad about your own body, which in turn hinders your desire to initiate sex. A lower self-image leads to less amount of sex and in turn, creates relationship problems. One of the main sources of stress can be your relationship; if you cannot nurture it, it might lead to elevation of stress.
  2. Negative effect on libido: Cortisol is a hormone that is produced by stress. It is needed by the body in small doses and over short periods of time. Increase in stress over a period of time results in increased levels of cortisol, which lead to suppression of sex hormones. Lower amount of sex hormones results in lower libido.
  3. Excessive drinking: It is of common knowledge that people drink to relieve stress. Maximum times, increased stress levels lead to excessive drinking. Men have difficulty having erections after they drink too much. In women, excess alcohol causes dehydration, resulting in reduced lubrication. These problems lead to dull sex.
  4. Impact on fertility and menstrual cycle: In women, stress affects the pituitary gland, which is responsible for the thyroid, ovaries and adrenal glands. Improper functioning of the ovaries can adversely affect the menstrual cycle. Periods might become irregular or menstruation might stop. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Dear lybrate-user, I hope with inderal and prodep your depressive symptoms are less. Please attend gym without protein supplements. Since you have irritable bowel syndrome, you may find it difficult to digest too much protein. For allergic lab tests, you have to consult a immunologist.

You seem to be feeling disappointment a lot and taking it to heart. Emotional disturbances have their effect on the physical body as well. I suggest that you please look into it and undertake some counselling sessions to build back your confidence, enthusiasm and self esteem. Yellow color urine and smell could be due to drinking very little water as well. If you are on multivitamins then again urine smells and becomes yellow. I suggest that you look for reasons for your problems and tackle them one by one rather than sinking emotionally. Take a second and third opinion and read up on your condition yourself and educate yourself. Take care.

Memory can be improved by planning properly and revising intelligently. Daily revisions weekly revisions and doing mock tests and also writing the answers by closing the book and using your fingers over each line of text book to improve your concentration.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

You should talk about your burdens and problems but only with a few people you trust. Make sure to converse with people on neutral topics rather than on personal ones. Make sure to evaluate your thoughts before you put them in words.

Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear , at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

For a Substance Induced Psychotic Disorder prognosis is very good once the substance addiction is treated as well. Short term treatment is sufficient.

Relaxation is the best way to overcome anxiety. Don't worry unnecessarily. Keep yourself calm and cool. Practice deep breathing exercises. Think positively. Always believe that whatever happens is for good. Manage your work and time properly.

Going through a Family, job and financial problems, Depression etc. I am working on several things to start my life all over again. I find that I am not able to use my brain to full potential. I am looking for a medicine/ drug which will help me improve my brain function. Make me mentally so powerful and clear which will help me achieve my goals. All my concern is I want to focus and concentrate on things I want to do and not what happened so far. I really need something to turn my brain into a computer. Can you please suggest? Thank you in advance. Wasim.

Respected Sir, I am very sorry to hear that you have been dealing with a lot of problems but you have to remember that it is a part of Life. Everyone goes through the problems that you have mentioned viz Job, Family, Financial. However, Depression, if not self diagnosed, is not something everyone suffers from. If there was a drug that could turn your brain into a computer, I am pretty sure, in today's competitive world, everyone would be on that drug from the day of their birth. Unfortunately for you, there are no such shortcuts to achieve your goals. Yoga, meditation, relaxation exercises could all help you increase your focus and concentration and maybe even make you "mentally powerful" but these will require a huge amount of input and hard work from your part and will also take time. Apart from these, eating right and getting adequate sleep, having good friends and a supportive family could all eventually help you. So, sorry to disappoint you, but I wish you All the Best in trying to rebuild your life.

Dear , quitting smoking is very easy if you have will power. Just stop it and be stubborn never to touch it. Nicotine chewing gum is available in medical stores. You can use them as an alternative to reduce craving. Slowly you can reduce them too. Take care.

Sir one of my best buddy have one bad habits he drink wine so can you give me solution how stop him to drink wine.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you think that he will find it very difficult, then admit him to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. His family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. His children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. If your buddy refuses to go for rehabilitation, then some centers have a method of picking him up when he is totally sloshed and is not able to fight back effectively. They will need the family’s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast.
