How Stress Is Ruining Your Sex Life?

How Stress Is Ruining Your Sex Life?

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.

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.

Dear , memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection

The main cause of over thinking and stress is your body is not active. For releasing good hormones it is necessary to do regular yoga and meditation. Make a proper timetable and pursue your hobby and talk to your close friend about it and spend time with nature Means you should plan a trip, change will help you allot.

Depression - How It Creates Trouble in Sex Life?

Depression - How It Creates Trouble in Sex Life?

Sometimes, depression and problems in bed influences each other. Intimacy complications, such as anorgasmia (inability to orgasm), or erectile dysfunction, often exist side-by-side with depression. Blame it on today’s fast paced lifestyle or unhealthy habits that a major portion of couple population suffers from this dual issue. So much so that sometimes it results in a sour break up of relationships. However, doctors can normally treat depression-related sexual problems. 

The Connection Between Depression and Sexual Problems 

Let us view our brain as a highly responsive sex organ. The sexual desire begins in our brain and then travels down our body through neurotransmitters or primary brain chemicals. These chemicals are responsible in increasing communication between our brain cells and triggering more blood flow to our sex organs. With depression, this communication between brain cells doesn’t happen, and thus pops up the problem. This lack of communication causes sexual problems. Many women and men with depression complain about having no or low sexual desire. And this can create an emotional turbulence in relationships. 

Antidepressants and Sexual Problems 

Antidepressants are extremely helpful in boosting your mood or sense of self-regard. However, certain kinds of antidepressants, such as Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, have unsatisfactory side effects; sexual mostly. Antidepressants work by altering the chemicals in your brain (neurotransmitters). These same neurotransmitters are involved in sexual activity. Sexual dysfunction occurs when antidepressants alter the nerve pathways that channel sexual response. 

Side effects of Antidepressants 

Antidepressants may cause the following sexual problems: 

  1. Inability to enjoy or initiate sex 
  2. Delayed ejaculation or premature ejaculation in men 
  3. Erectile Dysfunction where the man becomes incapable of attaining of holding on to an erection. 
  4. Reduced sexual desire 
  5. Inability to orgasm 

The Solution

If you notice issues in sexual functioning or decreased interest in sex while suffering from depression, consulting your doctor is important. With consultation, you and your doctor will be able to figure out whether the cause of your sexual problem is 

  • depression, 
  • the antidepressants that were prescribed or 
  • any other medical cause. 

Luckily, there are many ways to counter antidepressant-induced sexual side effects without compromising on your treatment for depression. Your doctor may either prescribe different antidepressants that prevent loss of libido, or give you medicines that you can take along with the antidepressant. Hiding your problems, or being ashamed of them won’t help you. I have been helping couples in coming out of depression induced sexual problems for past 10 years. You should first talk freely with your partner and then see me for a solution for your problem.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

She is having problem of depression, and she is talking tablet Lam - et 0.5 mg. Does it have any side effects also?
Yes any tablet it has their own side effects. It is better to not take any medicine. In compulsory situation only we go for medicine. It is better to take psychological counselling. It has no side effects. It develops your personal lifestyle management. It improves your level of thinking. It is total personality development. It is better to consult a qualified psychologist at your nearest place. Follow the suggestions of the psychologist very carefully. She will come out of of her status. Do not allow her alone and do not think alone. It is better to share her thoughts and provide good family environment. Be sociable all the time and be happy all the time. Ok all the best.

I want to improve my physic bt I dnt have time in the morning and had a habit of smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to create time in the morning by waking up early or skipping whatever else you are doing and fit in the exercise regimen. If you exercise in the morning, you feed into the biorhythm and will find your entire day cheerful and fruitful. Regarding smoking please follow these instructions meticulously: When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat 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 smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. 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.

You must be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment shows many symptoms of depression and are short lived. Daily routines will help you over come them. I need to discuss this with you in detail. Post a private question to me. Take care.
