Don't Let Depression, Stress Affect Your Sex Life

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Don't Let Depression, Stress Affect Your Sex Life

Depression and some antidepressants can curb your libido. This has a negative effect on the depression as intercourse releases 'happy hormones'. Thus depression and your sex life share a cyclic relationship. The effect of depression on your sex life is a result of both brain functioning and physical changes in the body.

Here are a few things you can work on if stress or depression is ruining your sex life:

  1. Break the pattern: Depression often makes a person withdraw from others and cease to enjoy any experience. This becomes a thought pattern that cannot be cured with medication. Talking to a counselor can help unlearn these thought patterns and help people form new social bonds. As part of the treatment, the patient will need to find and explore new ways of enjoying sex that can strengthen strained relationships. Talk to your partner.
  2. Having an open conversation with your partner: It is the key to improving relationships and one's sex life. Talk about your sexual needs and help your partner understand your mental barriers to sex. Find forms of foreplay that appeal to both of you. It is also important for you and your partner to understand that there is no 'standard' to how often you should have sex or how you should feel after it.
  3. Try to stay away from performance anxiety: Don't let performance anxiety take a toll on your sex life. Studies show that being conscious about their performance in bed leads men to lose their erection, which takes all the pleasure away from intimate moments. Instead of being stressed about your sexual performance, focus on your partner's needs and attend to them for a more pleasurable sex life.
  4. Don't make it seem necessary to have sex even if your partner is tired: If you find that stress due to problems at workplace or financial issues is affecting your partner considerably, then respect his/her decision of saying no to sex. Don't pressurise your partner to get intimate just because you want it. Your patience and understanding nature will increase your partner's admiration towards you, in turn leading to a more passionate and happier sex life.

It is normal for children to have their own plans as they grow up and if he is happy by what he does you need to worry and keep your mind calm. Meditation and yoga will be helpful

Select particular date. Avoid those company who are smoker. When thoughts occur say to yourself hold on for 5 mins. And engage yourself in activities, busy yourself in task.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, quitting alcohol needs a bit of will power. In case you find it difficult to stop alcohol then you should decrease your alcohol intake on regular basis. On first 7 days try to take one peg less everyday than you drink in other days. On the next 7 days try to decrease another peg. Carry on this process. Homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 15 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water will help to decrease your craving for liquor. For your problems of being over-weight I would advise you to walk for one hour daily. You have to simply burn the extra calories. Now kindly pay attention to quit your addiction for smoking. Quitting smoking is far more difficult than quitting alcohol. You have to control yourself a lot to abstain yourself from smoking. Try to cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke daily. Don't try to stop it all at a once. Homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals in a cup of water effectively helps in quitting smoking.

Medicine of ocd. My wife wasting too much water on washing wall, door, pipes, electronic items. And force to children do same please consult the best medicine.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, PDO (Michigan, USA), CCBT (Pennsylvania, USA), CTMS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Sorry to hear about your family's problems. While the symptoms do definitely sound like ocd, I suggest you get a detailed evaluation, both for confirmation of diagnosis, as well as identification of commonly coexisting conditions, if any. For example, around half the people with ocd also suffer from depression, which warrants special attention. Additionally, medication prescribed for ocd depends on individual patient profile, something which can be determined after evaluation. This needs to be done to ensure suitability and tolerability of the medication, and to minimise side effects. Also bear in mind that treatment success rates in ocd are highest if both medication and psychotherapy are combined, and family counseling also plays an important role. Kindly seek a consultation with a psychiatrist for proper addressal of the problem.

Dear lybrate-user, mood stabiliser tablets are given for many years. Stopping them will cause a reappearance of illness. If you have started again taking tablets use some family planning method like condom to avoid pregnancy, after getting out of this episode of depression, discuss with your psychiatrist about planned pregnancy. He or she will help you to stop medication for few months, say 12th week of pregnancy and restart comparatively safe mood stabiliser after the first ultrasound of the baby at 11th week. Sometime she may ask you to take folic acid tablets also for few months of pregnancy to see that you get a normal child.

Prefer keeping yourself is a dangerous attitude. Share internal problems with friends and family members. Always think about him it leads to depressive thoughts. If you think you may get anything then think. If not better to leave it. Anyone is not exception before death. Every one is common principle for death. So do not think. Develop busy schedule. Concentrate on your regular work. Change the place, visit new places go to temples, parks, movies and spend most of the busy. Do not be alone it is your enemy. Be friendly and be happy. Better to try some of this aspects. Some days later you will become the normal person. Ok best of luck.
