Many people are afraid of old age. This is because of the common fear that old age robs people of their s*x drive.
Indeed, experts assure that what actually kills s*x drive may be the medicines that you are exposed to as you age, what with the fact that you may have to take cocktails of medications to beat certain age-related conditions.
So, which medications are likely to mess up your libido? Read on!
Antidepressants are psychiatric medications that doctors prescribe in the treatment major depressive disorder and other conditions, including dysthymia (persistent mild depression), anxiety disorders, etc.
According to New York-based Reproductive Endocrinologist, Dr. Jaime Knopman, antidepressants help fight depression by raising levels of a feel-good brain hormone, serotonin. But they can also have the effect of lowering libido levels and making it harder for a man to attain climax during s*x.
Birth control pills
Of course, there is absolute need for family planning. However, each woman must work with her doctor to get a treatment that best suits her needs and health status. Experts note that many women go on the Pill during perimenopause to help relieve symptoms such as hot flashes and headaches.
But a German study published in the Journal of s*xual Medicine reports that about a third of those taking oral contraceptives report problems with s*xual functioning, including trouble reaching climax, decreased desire, and pain during s*x.
The scientists note that oral contraceptives “increase levels of s*x-hormone-binding globulin, which drops the amount of testosterone that’s circulating freely in your bloodstream. So, watch your reactions to your family planning Pills and let your physician know your fear or concerns.
These are drugs that are used for the treatment of common allergy symptoms, such as sneezing, watery eyes, hives, and a runny nose. These medicines dry you out everywhere, including your v**ina, says Knopman. They also make you feel sleepy, so you’re less likely to be in the mood for s*x. The solution is easy: Just take these medicines in the morning when you wake up (instead of at bedtime), and if you need a second daily dose, wait until after s*x and don’t forget to use lubrication!
Anticonvulsant medicines are used in the treatment of epilepsy, but they are also known to affect s*x drive! They increase levels of a hormone called prolactin — your body also pumps it out when you’re nursing to stimulate milk production—which in turn reduces s*x drive.
These drugs also appear to lower levels of another hormone called DHEA, which impacts libido, too. If you think your seizure medications are really causing a problem in the bedroom, ask your doctor for advice.
Because many pain medications can be bought off the counter, people tend to abuse them. Yet, experts are warning that pain medications can spell the doom of your s*x life! According to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health, these drugs can lower the testosterone levels and gradually kill the libido!
The bottom line: Watch your reactions to the medications you take and talk to your doctor if you have any concerns.
