Orgasms and my Well Being....

Well.....
I am going to the Psychologist today - and I feel sure I will be prescribed antidepressants on top of a mood stablizer. I feel like I am killing a part of myself by taking them.
I had been on AD for 4 years and have been off for 3 months - gosh what a change in the bedroom.
I am particularly sad because my husband and I have 2 small children (3 1/2 and 2) and obviously sex has gone by the wayside - I feel like I may be getting into the place where sex is not so far down the list and then I won't want to because it is so frustrating when you have to deal w/ the problems of the AD. I soooo want a good sex life again and I feel like I am throwing away that posibility. I know I am going to have to deal with side effects no matter what....but does it have to be this one?
I am thinking about arranging for my kids to go to my parents for the evening - for a version of the last supper
I am wondering if anyone else has a profound sadness about losing this part of yourself.....
Jen

Re: Orgasms and my Well Being....

jen,

sorry to hear about that one side effect that is bringing you down. is your husband supportive of the decreased sex drive? maybe with his understanding and help you and he can create a loving environment/atmosphere that may inhibit a time when you two can reconnect. i hope that makes sense. i could go into my long story about that issue, but this is about you and yours.

best wishes...in creating and retaining the romance in your relationship

Re: Orgasms and my Well Being....

I can't speak to the female perspective, but from a male perspective, I've been on prozac, zoloft, paxil, and probably a couple others. There were definite side effects in the bedroom. I'm now on Wellbutrin, in addition to a few other meds, and I am pretty much normal there now. Like the Wellbutrin commercials say (about 90 times in 30 seconds) there is a "low incidence of sexual side effects". Seems true to me.

Good luck.
