Brief Answer:
Need to know more about the problem

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for the query in XXXXXXX

I would like to know why you think about suppressing a sexual desire?

Is the medicine required for a male or female?

Certain disease situations can increase sexual desire. It is rather to treat that disease situation than suppressing the desire.

I need to know the requirement and the situation in detail so that I can give you my suggestions

best regards

I am a healthy male. Borderline diabetic controlled by diet. Always have thought
too much about sex to the point that it dominates my mental processes and plans.
It probably is mediated by testosterone level. I want safe medication.

Brief Answer:
Sexual Thoughts are Normal

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

It is normal to think about sex.

If you are not engaged in any activities, definitely you would be thinking more about sex. There is NO age barrier that you should not think about sex and do not do sexual activity.

What is the frequency of sexual activity (Intercourse or Masturbation)?

Does these thoughts hampers your day to day activities?

Brief Answer:
2 times in a week is Normal - Review with results

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Sexual activity twice in a week is quite normal.

You can practice meditation or yoga to control your desire.

Common cause of increased sexual drive in elderly is dementia which need to be ruled out. It is better to get examined by a physician at your place.

Meanwhile you can do a testosterone profile (Total testosterone & Free testosterone) preferably done in the early morning.

You don't quite get my drift. Your suggestion of Yogi and meditation would involve
affectiing a noticeable, ritualistic therapy that would be more burdensome than
the condition to be alleviated, which at least fun. I want medication.

Perhaps you should refer me to another specialist.

Detailed answer follows

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

I did not mean that yoga and Meditation is the only solution. Those where the relaxation techniques.

It is advisable to get yourself examined for testosterone level as I suggested early before judging the reason for increased desire. Certain medical conditions can cause increased desire for sex which need to be diagnosed.

Q1. By the way, in a day, how many times, do you think about sex?

Q2. Usually, how you satisfy that desire for sex during these desire attacks?

Q3. Are these desire for sex hampers your day today activities?

Awaiting your testosterone results and reply regarding the frequency of sexual desire attacks
