Brief Answer:
Please elaborate on your fantasies and wrong ideas

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query
practicing masturbation is a universal phenomena . It is done by people of all ages, caste or colour because this is a normal psychosexual development milestone. It is absolutely akin to vaginal sex and the result of both is seminal emission. It is a problem if preferred regularly over vaginal sex,despite the presence of a suitable partner . You need to elaborate on the wrong thoughts and fantasy ideas troubling you. I shall help you after that.

Dear Sir,
I have been masturbating since 12 years. It is an addiction. I havenot seen anyone's career getting so much affected by getting into masturbation.
I do have stress,anxiety & may be the frequency increased post that.
I have sexual thoughts with regard to girls which I think is inappropriate.
I want to get rid of it. I had consulted a doctor few years back who had opined on similar lines as you have.

But I guess still there would be some tablet or medicine to atleast reduce sexual urge & attraction. Please help in that direction

Brief Answer:
Need to discuss your thoughts

Detailed Answer:
hello
I need to know in detail whether you qualify to be labelled as having sex addiction. Sexual thoughts about the opposite sex is a part of normal psychosexual developmental process . I am getting the impression that you are hesitating to discuss your thoughts here. You may do so with me in private through my web site www.vivanhospital.com. once I understand the nature of thoughts, I can suggest line of management

Dear Sir,
I have not had sex with any women. Only thing is that I am addicted to masturbation. At times frequency is 3-4 on a daily basis. I dont know how but all of a sudden, the moment there is stress, there is an urge to have sex with myself & simultaneously get attracted to photos and videos of women.

At times when there is no stress or anxiety, I don't masturbate at all & there is no distraction or thoughts about women as well.I just want medicine that can reduce anxiety/stress that can automatically prevent masturbation.
Also even if someone is not having any stress, is there not any standalone medicine for stopping masturbation?

Brief Answer:
Try the medicine

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I think you can try Fluvoxamine ,starting with 50 mg and increase to 100 after a week This medicine should be taken after consultation with a psychiatrist . You will need a prescription from a local doctor You may feel the difference after 4-5 weeks There is no medicine to stop masturbation but the anxiety will be reduced
