  • Oh I'm sorry you are having a hard time. It is likely the medication that he is on that is contributing to this. You to should look into couples counseling and he should check with his doc if there is anything he can do.
    Most relationships do go through sexual lulls where you aren't banging like bunnies anymore. . .

  • Lots of anti-depressants have sexual side effects. Not being able to function or orgasm easily is one of those. I would ask him to speak to his doctor about trying a different anti-depressant and see if that helps. Other things can do this as well... alcohol can cause ED problems, as well as diabetes.. My husband is 28 and has no sign of slowing down. Your hubby is too young to consider this "normal" - have him bring this health issue up with his Doctor.

  • his depression meds might be having bad side effects, alot of meds have sexual side effects, or it could be the constant stress, or both, he needs to go to his dr about it

  • Definately sounds like it could be the medication and stress. He needs to talk to his dr! Hope you guys get it figured out!

  • You said he is on meds for depression. Those medications effect libido and males ability to get it up and/or keep it up. You might want to consider other ways to deal with the depression besides medication. There are natural ways to cope.

  • The medication does effect the libido!

    Answer by LexsiesMommy at 2:43 AM on Dec. 21, 2008

  • Yup, the first thing I thought of was meds. He should still continue taking don't ever want to stop depression meds cold turkey..but the doc could also perscribe something that will help his sex drive along with the dep med. If it's not to him about it. He should know if he feels different toward you or if he's falling out of love. Cat...there are natural ways to cope but some people have tried that and the only thing left is meds.

  • It IS the MEDICATION. Depression meds do that. I think having sex is a better cure for depression than those stupid meds who ruin your sex life.
