Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 32-year-old male. There is a huge problem regarding my sex drive. I have not found the root cause till now. I used to masturbate since I was 15 years, but from the last six months, I watch pornography daily and masturbate once in two or three days. I usually masturbate by rubbing hard on bed. I am confused whether my low drive is related to stress, excess masturbation, porn, or other hormonal imbalance. I am going to get married and that is why I am worried. I tried safe sex with a sex worker previous month, but could not enjoy because of low sex-drive. Could you tell me the reason and remedies for the same? Please help.

Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Masturbation is normal. It does not cause physical problems or sexual problems. Also, do not give any importance to the advertisement that mentions that masturbation cause health problems or destroys life, and masturbation does not require any treatment. Your problem can be due to stress, anxiety or due to a physical cause. For physical cause, you need to do blood tests Hb (hemoglobin), TC (total count), fasting sugar, prolactin, TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), testosterone. Please upload the reports. Depending on the reports, treatment can be decided.

I hope this information helps provide some insight into your symptoms.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thank you.

Hi doctor,

Thank you for your reply.

Is pornography responsible for low libido? Please advise.

Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Pornography is not responsible. But if you compare yourself with the pornography performance then you may develop a complex, which may affect your libido. Remember, whatever you see in pornography is several takes joined together. The penis is also injected with drugs.

I hope this information helps provide some insight into your symptoms.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thank you.

Hello doctor,

These are the reports of tests that you have told me to undergo. Please check.

Thank you.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

The reports are normal. Your problem is due to stress or anxiety, so you must do physical exercises. If it does not improve, then you will need medicine that cannot be prescribed online, and so you need to visit a clinic.

I hope this helps.

Please revert in case of further queries.

Thank you.
