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.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Agoraphobia is social anxiety disorder. Ayurvedic medicines are not effective enough for short term. Social anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

Dear friend, first know as what is it that you actually want. Sacrificing means doing something which is not a preferred choice. It is suppressing what you want in some way and what is suppressed does not evaporate but gets magnified. I hope you realize that an individual, because he is an individual is selfish to the core, the sooner you realize it the better it is. If you want money, draw a line and be one tracked and you will eventually get it. Try being honest to yourself. It is not very easy

I am 44 years old and suffering from loss of memory or concentration and feeling blurred vision and the tendency of upside uric acid. And pain in sch older joint.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your mentioned symptoms have to be managed by a neurophysician. You have also mentioned high uric acid levels for which I can advise you. General recommendations are: - decreasing intake of red meat, alcohol, rice in your diet and other purine rich sources - also increase your water intake so that uric acid is excreted from body well. - keeping your weight to normal levels will also help you. - intake of fresh fruits, citrus fruits and cherries has been implicated in reducing uric acid values in the body as well. Nowadays there is a medication by the name of febuxostat which helps in lowering uric acid levels in body but kindly check out that it suits your body. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

Only medicines can not work many times. This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. Want to meet/speak to connect me.

Hi antibiotics cannot cause mental problems. Be positive and think positively. Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of pine + 3 drops of gentian + 3 drops of willow + 3 drops of scleranthus. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.

Dear user. I can understand. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, Psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

Suicidal thought is indicative of severe depression, kindly consult a psychiatrist immediately. The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Dear sir/madam, I am a married woman with a child and a good husband but fall in love with a single introvert depressed man, who is suffering from clinical depression more than 10 years which is said by psychiatrist. And it is untreated. Before one year he was treated for nerve problem as he is having a pain through out his body and his left hand used to shake. So the previous doctor said he was suffering from perkinson disease. But the psychiatrist said he is not having any nerve problem he is suffering from deep depression. He is having a hobby of aquarium and he is having an small ngo which is his life. And he for this organization he doesn't get married. He is having a habit of run away from home. More than two times he run away from his home without saying anybody anything. And after one or two days he returned back. Any type of pressure or stress, he can't handle and he becomes totally silent and runaway from the situation. But he said he loves me too much, and as we get married from our soul he wants to live with me for ever. But his behaviour and mood is so fragile and sensitive that's why I am getting totally frustrated and unable to take any decision. One day he is good and might be within the next hour he is a completely a different man. Presently more than one year he is not taking the medicine regularly. When ever he doesn't feel well he takes the medicine" depsonil. But not as per the prescription. The doctor gave him another medicine know as licab" but he donot take this medicine. Near about 6 months he is not talking with me. No phone calls no personal talking. Once before six months there were some problem was created and my brother talk with him, that he completely blame me for the relationship. And said now he wants to completely concentrate with his organization work. And when my brother asked him does he want to marry me, he said no. Though we get married from our soul and we are having a physical attachment. When I heard all those things and said him how could he said all those things, he became shameful and became speechless. After those incident whenever I decide to end the relationship, he began to cry, or do something danger incident. I really love him too much but I get too much upset also with his behaviour. My legal husband is very supportive and he understands the situation and my mental condition. He also tried to make him understand, but nothing works. His behaviour sometimes torture me so much that I become totally helpless. I don't know what should I do? he is not ready to go to the doctor. And there is no one in his family who is going to help him. And he is so much stubborn that no one can do anything to him. Please show me the way how can I help him and make him talk to me again as before. One thing is good about him, he's really trying to do a lot of work and established his organization. But the decision what ever he is taking are not good enough. But he will not listen to anyone also. He doesn't want to end the relationship and he doesn't want to take any responsibility also. I don't know what should I do. I get afraid if he make suicide, I don't want to lost him, what should I do? how can I maintain both the relationship smooth. I am now presently in a highly depressed condition. One thing I forgot to mention, he is now 52 years old and I am 35. One question more does he really a patient of depression or he acts in front me. Please let me know and does he still loves me? please guide me. Thanking you radha.

I smoke regularly. I have noticed nicotine marks being formed on my teeth. How to remove them easily?
The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

I have habit of chewing tobacco (pan prag) for the last 30 years Please advise me how to stop it. I tried several times but in vain. I am helpless. My age is 56.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If it is Pan Parag and gutkha products, they are both very dangerous. I am so glad that your intention is to quit these habits. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Both are tobacco products and therefore, have addictive components to them. It may feel like you can’t stop but that it really not true. If you do not try, then it will never happen. You must try and try again until you succeed. The problem with addiction is that you have two products which are both conditioned to various events in your daily life and as such it will make it difficult but not impossible. You could work with an addiction counselor to help you process the rehabilitation. It is important to first find out about the ill-effects of tobacco use to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary and true. The nicotine in tobacco stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Nicotine also reduces the erectile capacity of your penis to hamper satisfying sex. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. You need to replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the tobacco drive reduces, substantially. Both will help but I am inclined to favor the gum because it is an oral habit and it will occupy the mouth just as though you were still chewing tobacco. When you want it will be easier to give up the gum. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-users for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit consuming Pan. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

There is no convection between general health, power or memory with masturbation or" hand practice" as you say it. However the irresistible urge that makes you masturbate everyday to get sleep may be a kind of psychological dependence on the act. Inorder to get rid of this you need to follow some suggestions. Find alternative ways and healthier methods of relaxation and inducing sleep like meditation or relaxation exercises before sleep. Eat healthy and light dinner with fruits atleast 1-2 hours before going to bed. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Exercise daily preferably in morning hours only. If you still feel difficult to get out of the habit you may need further treatment and counseling.

Sometimes suddenly I got angry so what is the reason for that? What should I do to not get angry.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should not not get angry. Anger is a good feeling if harnessed well. In fact all feelings are good feelings and they are there to tell us to rectify something that is not going well. The cardinal rule to feelings is the expressions of them. All feelings must be expressed without exception. If you do not they will get internalized and harm the particular organ it has chosen to express itself in. Now there is a problem if you are getting angry suddenly, too fast or without reason. These are signs that there has been some problem in the past and that the concerned feeling has not be dealt with by expression. Sometimes by suppressing anger over the years you may be carrying an overload of unexpressed anger that will come out in impulses and with the least of provocations. These piled up emotions must be dealt with even now and after you have relieved yourself of past feelings you will be able to handle current ones with a lot of ease. Since you are already displaying so much anger at such speed, it indicates that there was something that had happened in your early childhood, including prenatal life, which is contributing to this situation. Your mom will know what that is all about, and equipped with that information meet with a counselor soon. In fact it will be easier to work on it now than later when the anger behavior will be too entrenched to remove easily. In the meantime go for regular and vigorous exercise daily, preferably the aerobic kind. Also you must introspect whether you are actually scared but choosing to act angry because it is a power feeling compared to being in fear. In that case you need to handle the fear and not the anger and your problems will cease to trouble you. Even so you must then find out about why there is so much fear in your life at this stage. Anyway anger management classes will be still beneficial for you.

I am 30year boy I have been suffering from diabetes since last 28years. No one didn't want to marry me. Why?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Diabetes is a serious condition that has the possibility of passing it on genetically to your offspring. When people marry they do look for the best possible match for their daughter and for the children that are born to that relationship. You cannot really fault them to look for the welfare of their own daughter in looking for marriage prospects. Even as professionals we recommend the most compatible matching criteria to ensure that the couple is most suitable for each other so that there is no possibility of conflict leading to breakups and divorces. It is probably influenced by the theory of? survival of the fittest. I think that you must learn to accept this aspect of life and seek a partner who may have some other issue with her which has become her nemesis in finding a willing partner, and that you seek to marry such a one. The both of you will have a reason to then share a lovely life because there is no disadvantage in each other that can be used to put the other down. This makes it more compatible. Even then we do not recommend child bearing, if there are any dominant genes of the same disorder on both sides. This is a sensible way to live a good life together and yet be responsible able bearing no children so that you do not give them a known handicap to unnecessarily compound their lives too. I hope you are able to understand this reasoning: it may sound all unfair but this is how it is. There are certain things in life that is not exactly the way we want it, and we need to accept it and live with it without making it a bug-bear in life. This is true for all of us. That is why scott m peck says? life is difficult. He then recommends that we do not attempt to change that but to change ourselves to cope with that fact. So do not wallow in this situation and make life more miserable than it is: make the best adaptation so that you live life well.
