Hi doctor,

I have been suffering from mild depression for the last two years. A year ago, I got married. Our sex life is not good. Now, we are planning for a baby. How to boost my sex life?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

  • To maintain a good sex life, the first and foremost is a healthy body and mind.
  • As I see that you are having depression, there is an urgent need to treat it immediately, if not done already. I feel Bupropion could be an option for your condition.
  • The second one is to keep positive attitudes as far as possible.
  • The third one is a good amount of antioxidant intake and the fourth is taking sex as a means of pleasure rather than a duty.

  • Bupropion is an antidepressant with least side effects on sexual function. It increases your mood from depression to normal and good feelings.
  • The contents of antioxidants include vitamin B complex, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, chromium and others.
