Ok, so I have a quite personal question to ask the ones of you in here who are males with low libido or have experience with males with low libido.
A little background history:
My DP first started antidepressants over two years ago, and was quickly affected by the common side effect of low/non-existent libido. Even when he weaned off after about a year, the low $ex-drive persisted and has never improved. He is now on antidepressants again and I can see a great improvement in his moods, however he has NO $exdrive whatsoever. I’ve pretty much had back-to-back pregnancies for 2 ½ years (with both antenatal and postnatal depression- so it is safe to say that $ex has not been on the forefronts on our minds) But now it is starting to become yet another issue in our relationship. I don’t want DP to go on medication to counter-effect the low libido if it is potentially harmful to him, but I am also concerned that our future is completely platonic. It is difficult to talk to DP about this because I do not want to put added pressure on him or effect his already low self-esteem. But something needs to be done. Before I have another talk to him, I thought I would hear about others experiences so that I can address the issue with more information.
Does anyone find themselves in the same situation? Can someone tell me if something can be done about it? Are there relatively safe medications or alternative treatments that might be effective?
Love from the sultry “virgin”.
