Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. From the given details you could have social anxiety disorder. 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. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

Anxiety-induced Premature Ejaculation

MD - Psychiatry, Diploma in Child & Adolescent Psychology , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Pune
Anxiety-induced Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is a condition that causes a lot of stress, especially as you age. In order to know more, you should understand premature ejaculation well. It is a condition wherein one ejaculates before or immediately after sexual penetration, with little or no sexual stimulation. This leads to poor sexual performance and anxiety issues.


There is no specific cause for premature ejaculation. Regular issues such as sex with a new partner of having sex after a long time might trigger this condition. Factors such as anxiety, stress and guilt may also result in premature ejaculation. It may also be caused by medical issues such as an injury to the genitals or other hormonal problems.

In this article, the factor that will be focused on is anxiety that most often leads to premature ejaculation. Being anxious or nervous about one’s sexual performance can result in this condition. Your mind may be preoccupied with whether your partner is enjoying the entire experience or about the proper functioning of the genitals. Both these factors bring about anxious thoughts and thus, may make one unable to control his ejaculation. One ultimately stops focusing on the entire experience and starts to overthink.

How to Control Anxiety Before and During Intercourse:

  1. Go Again: If it happens the first time, then shoot again. Try another round and you may find that you are able to control your ejaculation better.

  2. Be honest about it: Being honest about the entire situation will reduce anxiety about the performance. Your partner may be understanding and would process the situation better. Thus, with subsequent sexual encounters, you are sure to get better.

  3. Take matters in your own hands: If the partner is aware of all the limitations, one can use other methods such as oral sex or other foreplay methods (read fingering and fisting) to satisfy her.

  4. Decide if You Need More or Less Foreplay: For some guys with PE, foreplay increases anxiety, because they become more and more anxious as they wait for the event. For others, foreplay decreases anxiety, because it gives them a chance to relax before the event takes place. Find out what helps you and talk to your partner about it

If none of the above mentioned methods seem to work, you can fall back on medications.

Certain medications such as antidepressants are used in the treatment of premature ejaculation. They use a two pronged approach; on one hand they reduce anxiety and on the other, this very trait leads to delayed ejaculation, which in turn helps remedy the situation.

Controlling Premature Ejaculation:

PE can hit you at any age. But the good news is that when your PE is caused by anxiety, it’s something you can also reduce by using the tips above to help control your anxiety and get used to the lovemaking experience. You will need an understanding partner, but most partners are understanding when they care about you, and eventually you’ll be able to fully unlock the sexual prowess inside you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I'm having problems with my concentration power, I forgets learned things very quickly, and whenever I take study I can't concentrate on studies bcs that duration of time many unnecessary things hits on my mind every time during the study. Pls help me to get over from it.

Hi lybrate-user, you mentioned that you forget learned things. When ever you sit for study give a reading aloud, keeping pencil underline each word. Reading aloud will help you concentrate and understanding the content. Then give a second reading with learning point of view, make notes of important points, this time. Then read notes finally. This will help you concentrate. Make sure whatever you are learning give it a revision within 24hr that help us retain things for long.

Mr. lybrate-user it is quiet natural for any person who is stressed out due to various reasons to have mood swings like what you are experiencing. You will do well with doing relaxation exercises and yoga. Try to do swimming, play music which can help. Avoid smoking, alcohol and excessive caffeine which can worsen your problem. Try to stay with family and friends and go out rather than trying to stay alone. Go to parks have a walk and if possible take a short break from work and spend time with your loved ones which usually will help. Even after doing all these activities you feel to experience symptoms it is high time for you to consult a psychiatrist.

Bipolar can be treated by Allopathy or homeopathic drugs? Which is more effective? Tnx.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
In my humble opinion, allopathic drugs are the agents of choice for treatment of bipolar disorder. Lithium that you are on is among the best medicines for bipolar disorder provided it is prescribed in the proper dosage and monitored properly. In cases where lithium is ineffective, many other agents are available to treat this condition. Take care!

For some time I am not able sleep. It causes headache. What should I do? I think it is due to stress.

General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrate user, sleep disturbances commonly happens due to overwhelming stress in life like anxiety before exams or certain life situations. To deal with that you need to look at your problem pragmatically and develop a plan of action. If your sleeplessness is related to stress you need to share the problem with a friend or family member whom you trust. Secondly don't take cocoa. Coffee etc. Take early dinner. No watching tv late night and hit the bed early. Pur off the light and one tablet of prep like melatonin 3 mg. May help you. You can have a refreshing bath before the sleep. Occasional sleep disorders are nothing a concerning one unless it affects your daytime functioning and you tend to fall asleep at off hours. Check for sleep apnoea syndrome if you have any (this happens in obese individuals mostly) and can consult a chest physician to conduct a recording your sleep pattern.

You are in your forties only. You should try doing something. Some kind of work or small business. This will give you your lost self-esteem. Also try to get a counseling done. Do not unnecessarily torture yourself. Find your own happiness in whatever way.

Dear , you are just 22. I am sure that you are not an addict. Addiction means 5 or more large every day at a prescribed time period. Leaving alcohol habbit for a non-addicted habitual drinker is an easy task. Pure will power is the key. Secondly to divert attention you should learn to do entertaining activities or games. Physical activities always reduce the cravings. As you are a non-addict, there will not be any cravings. Therefore, stop worrying. You can stop liquor altogether today itself. Take care.

Dear user, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

It seems that you are scared to talk to people. The desire is there but the fear is crippling you. You need to meet with a counselor to deal with this fear and learn how to express the feeling as well as to reach out. Are you afraid that you may not speak well, or that your ideas are not that good, or that people will judge you, or that they will find out about how poor you are intellectually, etc? these are unnecessary dialogues you have and they are not true at all. When people are in conversation, we are listening to information and how you present the same. You are very harsh on yourself and have decided, for some reason, that you are not good enough. You may have been reprimanded in childhood for speaking or your parents may have been too strict at home. These could intimidate you when you are to speak in front of people. All these matters must be taken up with the counselor. Start talking to people at home first, particularly children, and slowly grade up to older teens and then to adults, as you build confidence. If you prepare and rehearse the conversation you are likely to have, you will do very well when you actually do it. Now there is no guarantee that whatever you prepared is going to be the exact conversation but since you are prepared most of the conversation will go according to script and the rest will be easy to handle because they will be minor deviations from the main course. You could attend the toastmasters club, and go for conversational skills courses too. Good social practice will eventually see you through. Nothing will happen, if you are passive about this. For your information public speaking is the number one fear of all mankind. Yet, people speak and appear so confident: it is because they use the fear to advantage and prepare themselves well. So you are not alone.
