What causes lack of sexual urge?
User rating for this question
I have been married for a year and 3 months now. I have had no physical relationship with my wife, I believe, the reason is a bit physical and a bit psychological. I was always apprehensive of my sexual performance from before marriage and I guess that is one fear that I have carried forward since. That and my belief that I am less endowed to perform well, I do not have any sexual urge now, I am only interested in my career and this is causing disturbance in my marriage. I do not want a child but my wife does. So what should I do, should I consult a sexologist or a psychologist? In either case if you can suggest something from your side or if you advise me to see either of the above specialists, please recommend a couple of them in Hyderabad whom I can see and who are reliable.

Brief Answer: Please follow the steps as below Detailed Answer: Hello I think your problem is more of psychological , probably fear of not performing adequately. This produced anxiety LEADING TO erection problem ,again causing anxiety. This has become a vicious circle. I suggest the following steps- 1- Before you start sex, take some anxiolytic like alprazolam 0.5 mg and sildenafil 50 mg 30 minutes before starting sex. 2- take a lubricant like KY jelly and put a finger in your wife's vagina , move in and out , then make2 fingers and repeat for 8-10 times 3- It is better if both of you take a bath before sex 4- Don't focus on the penis but focus on the pleasure. When you are ready, place your penis near the vagina in missionary position and slowly move forward. i think these should help you out. DR SAATIISH JHUNTRRAA
