Causes and Symptoms of Genophobia

M.D.MEDICINE , Diploma in Diabetology
Sexologist
Ask Free Question
Genophobia or coitophobia is the irrational psychological fear of intercourse. It is a type of a phobia and people suffering from it fill all or most of the criteria of specific phobia according to the ICD (The International Statistical Classification of Diseases). Genophobic people may be terrified of sexual intercourse or all acts involving sex. It is different from erotophobia in the sense erotophobia is the irrational fear of sexuality and not the act in itself.

Causes
1. The causes of genophobia may be attributed to different experiences and origins according to different psychological perspectives. According to the psychoanalytic perspective, genophobia may be caused by the rigid or extremely religious upbringing, which affected the development of ego, making the individual fear all acts that are sexual because it causes moral anxiety and a severe clash of the superego (ethical portion of one's personality)and i'd (primitive component of one's personality).

2. According to the learning perspective, genophobia may develop due to an unpleasant sexual experience such as rape or molestation. Rape Trauma Syndrome leads the survivor to relive the trauma several times and develop apprehension. They may begin to fear sex eventually by relating it to the unpleasant experience, eventually leading to genophobia. It may also be caused if the individual observes sexual acts that are traumatizing in nature, in media or otherwise.

3. It may also result from severe performance anxiety, especially for those who lack sexual experience and have abstained from sex for a prolonged period of time. There is also a chance that other phobias, such as the fear of diseases, especially STDs, may lead to a fear of sexual acts. Some people might relate sexual intercourse with acquiring diseases, thus leading to the development of genophobia.

Symptoms
Symptoms of genophobia include the fear of sexual intercourse and all acts within, breathlessness, nausea, dizziness, feeling sick and fear of losing control. All these symptoms take place in the context of sexual acts.

Treatment
Genophobia is treated like all other phobias. Therapeutic technique such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (a conversation centric therapy that focuses on how thoughts and beliefs can affect one's actions) is widely used in the treatment of genophobia along with medications. The therapeutic technique varies from patient to patient. For instance, the therapeutic technique used for a rape survivor would be completely different from that which is used for an individual with a fear of STDs. With proper treatment, genophobia is curable, eventually allowing the individual to have a particularly healthy sex life.

Sufficient speech stimulus is needed for speech lang development of the child. Talk, chat with her as much as possible. N do give time for her. Coz child imitates the speech of her familiar person quikly rather thn any other" s. So keep that in mind, this is the crucial age of speech lang development.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person. Please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

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.

Its been 4 months of my marriage. Previously before marriage I was so active, bold and powerful n now I do not know what is happening to me. I am always absent minded. I forget things n get into slow motion. Like m becoming slow. Not really active with whatever I do. Specially in the kitchen. My mind stops working sometimes. I dont know where I just get lost in my mind. I also feel sleepy. I just get numb, m suddenly if anyone does that work which I was doing. I feel embarrassed. and the family has started calling me as a sluggy fish. What should I do. M losing my confidence and temper too.

Sounds like you could suffering from an anger slow down. If you know what you are angry with especially after the marriage, you could direct a lot of therapy towards handling the problem. We normally get angry, when we want something and we know we are not going to get it or when we are provoked. You could talk to a counselor and see if you both can identify the reason for this anger and as you deal with it a lot of your daydreaming and spacing out will disappear. If this anger is turned inwards, as you would want to do because you think there is no solution to it you could also precipitate depression. Sometimes, the counselor could help you identify the origins of the anger if it that emotion, and make it easier for you. You may get your husband into confidence too.

How can I leave drinking?

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist
Ask Free Question
The elements of treatment appropriate for patients with severe alcohol problems are fairly straightforward. The core of these efforts involves steps to maximize motivation for abstinence, helping alcoholics to restructure their lives without alcohol, and taking steps to minimize a return, or relapse, to substance-using behaviors. Intervention the goal in this step is to break through feelings of denial and to help the patient recognize the adverse consequences likely to occur if the disorder is not treated. Reaching out to the family the family can be of great help in the intervention. Detoxification most people with alcohol dependence have relatively mild symptoms when they stop drinking mild or moderate withdrawal--can be managed by giving medicine for 3 to 5days. Severe withdrawal --in hospital. Rehabilitation for most patients, rehabilitation includes three major components: (1) continued efforts to increase and maintain high levels of motivation for abstinence, (2) work to help the patient readjust to a lifestyle free of alcohol, and (3) relapse prevention. If any further details are required let me know.

Dear, paranoid schizophrenia also called schizophrenia, paranoid type is a sub-type of schizophrenia. The clinical picture is dominated by relatively stable, often paranoid, delusions, usually accompanied by hallucinations, particularly of the auditory variety (hearing voices), and perceptual disturbances. These symptoms can have a huge effect on functioning and can negatively impact a person? s quality of life. I am sorry to say, paranoid schizophrenia is a lifelong illness, but with proper treatment, a person suffering from the illness can live a higher quality of life. Please work with your psychiatrist for management of your symptoms. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You already know pan parag is very bad for health. You should motivate your father to quit it. There are no short cuts. Either he has to use his will power or you have to compel him to undergo deaddiction therapy. Take care.

There is no way you can nullify the harmful effects of smoking without giving it up. You can try nicotine gums and patches if you wish to abstain. Smoking for 2 months, generally does not predispose to cancer, but it is never too soon, to develop cancer. It generally does not sound like cancer yet, but I would still advise to quit smoking. Its uncool.

I am 28 year old women. I feel highly stressed because of my relationship. I have a boy friend who I wish to marry. He is 4 years younger to me. For the last 3.5 years we were working together and everything was going fine between us but now he started working in an MNC at a very low salary. He was always looking for space away from as I am dominating. I always doubt me because whenever we go out I always catch him looking at women and then we fight. Since he started working I doubt he might find some other girl girl and will ditch me for her. I asked him not to join the job he is currently working in as I am afraid to loose him but his family wanted to do this job as his brother in law referred him on this position, his family was afraid that if he will not join then his brother in law would never help him again finding a job for him. Since he started working I haven't spoken to him because I am furious. I am unable to sleep and I don't know what to do. I think I am going to into depression. Please help.

I think that you are the problem in this relationship with regard to how it is going, which is not good by the sound of it. Perhaps you being older makes you want to dominate like a mother: this may eventually lead to smothering and he may seek to move away from you. You may also tend to do this because of your own insecurities, especially the fear of his ditching you. If he looks at other girls, that is not a crime or any indication of his infidelity. You are so dominating that you wanted him to stay on with the job with you because of your fear of losing him! You need to show more maturity and let him choose his jobs and make his decisions unless you know of good reasons that they were bad for him: not because they could bad for you. You cannot force him into this relationship, if he does not want it. So let him be, and if he does not come back to you, then you know he did not love you and you must accept that however difficult it is for you. The reasons could be many but it is not worth studying unless you want to learn something for your future. Part of the problem could be the age difference, where ideally he should have been older than you. If he is meant for you anyway, he will come back. But don’t wait for too long and before you get into another relationship, do some work on your insecurities. I don't understand why you are taking Betaloc. If it is for a heart problem, then it is of great concern that you have that at this age. Your insecurities may be rather stressful.

Uncontrolled anger is a sign of personality problem or stress. If you are like this since childhood days then you may have to change this habit gradually over a period of few months. Follow this:- 1. Whenever there is a situation that initiates anger, you try to become more polite in your approach. You take few long deep breaths and try to relax your body for some time. 2. You may try to avoid such situations. 3. You should a healthy life style with good nutrititious diet, regular yoga, meditation and exercise, enough time for rest, recreation and sleep, have some personal time to pursue whatever you like for example listening your favourite music, watching favourite tv serials etc.

Dear lybrate-user, unfortunately people are still hesitant to go to a doctor when it comes to mental health. Going to a psychiatrist is still a taboo. If this is the issue, you may tell your mother that she can take an appointment with a counsellor. A counsellor is also a mental health professional and can help people with situational difficulties. Now a days people are becoming more open about visiting a counsellor. The counsellor will be able to understand if your mother needs some assessments and if she needs intervention by a psychiatrist. Your mother may be sad and feeling helpless or hopeless. The counselling process will give her an outlet to express herself which will help her. All the best.

This fear is called phobia. You can control this phobia. Start the bike with minimum. That will continue automatically. If you start initially high speed later it will continue like that. Practice minimum speed always for 21 days. Later it will become your attitude. Always try to go minimum speed. When ever you are driving concentrate on driving. Maintain minimum speed. Do not cross the roads with speed. Your crossing speedly later thinking about that. Anything happened to me. Relaxed driving always best. Do not confused. Better to start early time. Start practicing minimum speed. Once you go slowly it will give much satisfaction. You do not have negative thoughts also. Change your behaviour. Do not imitate others and do not think others are what thinking about to me. Practice slow driving it is always best. Ok best of luck.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tension during and before examination is called performance anxiety. To overcome exam related performance anxiety, you should know yourself, your subject, exams and your study patterns. Once you study systematically and to the point, there is no need to be panic before or during the exams. “Effective learning” techniques should help you. Take care.
