Depression is one of those experiences when one may feel sad, lonely, dejected and discouraged. Doubt, anxiety and uncertainty crawl in so much so that they may lead to problems in decision making. A depressed person feels devoid of energy and the motivation to do anything at all seems to have disappeared.
Depression and some antidepressants curb sexual drive. This has a negative effect on the depression as sex 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.
So if depression is badly ruining your sex life, doing these will help big time:
- 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.
- Having an open conversation with your partner is 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.
- Ask your doctor to adjust medication In cases where the antidepressant curbs libido, lowering or adjusting the drug dosage can be a solution to treat the depression without curbing sexual desire. Do not attempt to adjust your medication on your own. Your doctor may also change the drug to another that does not affect your sex drive.
I am of 57 years and my wife is 49 years of age. Our elder son age 30 is married and younger son 23 years is studying. Since 15 years my wife has lost interest in sex and I am leading a very disturbed life due to her indifferent attitude towards sex. I have become panicky and hyper tensed which is causing hardships to my life. She does not understand this problem. I at times think of going to other ladies but till date I have stopped myself. Please advice me.
As per a recent research, an addictive party drug Ketamine, when administered in low-dose can actually help in reducing suicidal thoughts in depressed people within hours.
According to Michael Grunebaum from the Columbia University Medical Center in the US., “there is a critical window in which depressed patients who are suicidal need rapid relief to prevent self-harm.”
Grunebaum further mentioned, “currently available antidepressants can be effective in reducing suicidal thoughts in patients with depression, but they can take weeks to have an effect.”
The study was conducted on 80 people having clinically significant suicidal tendencies, who were assigned to receive an infusion of low-dose Ketamine. It was observed that within 24 hours, those who received an infusion of low-dose of Ketamine showed a significant reduction in suicidal thoughts. The complete study was published in American Journal of Psychiatry.
