libido loss

Postby desperate788 » Mon Jan 21, 2019 6:36 pm

Is there any possibility that my lack of libido problem caused by drugs I take risperdal and zyprexa? The thing is I had the problem when I don't take them too. I think risperdal and zyprexa new types of drugs of their class and have fewer side effects..right?

When is the last time you had intimate relations, e.g. girlfriend or prostitute?

No intimate relation yet.. sex life I think is fantasies and masturbation.

And that is why you most likely have lower libido, along with the fact you are now in your 40’s.

-1- Stop trying to get medical advice from people that have no idea what all prescriptions you are on or your medical history, including me.

-2- You don’t need to worry about lower libido when you have never been intimate. You’re putting the cart before the horse.

Doctors I saw earlier all told me so..I don't need to worry about low libido if I don't have a partner I just couldn't make them understand if libido doesn't push one wouldn't care to have a partner..cart before horse?

Nature gave us libido to reproduce hence to want a partner.

Or maybe the doctors just can’t make you understand, the same as I can’t make you understand.

You can do things in life even if you don’t feel like it. You realize that don’t you? You’re not a dog. You’re not a cat. You have the ability to think and decide to pursue a relationship based on more than your testosterone driven, biological desires.

Have you ever hydrated yourself, drinking more water than you are thirsty for in a given moment? People do that all the time before they go for a long run. Why? How is it possible? They are not thirsty. But, they are also not lacking in basic common sense. They can override their lack of thirst and hydrate themselves. Just like they can choose to override their lack of thirst, you can choose to override your lack of libido.
