Hello doctor,

I am a 39-year-old female. For the last four years, whenever my partner and I have sex, I get too wet. It is so that neither one of us can feel anything. I have been to the gynecologist. She told it was because of my Bartholin's glands, and they froze them. But that did not work. Again they burnt them, but it did not work this time also. I then had a vaginal hysterectomy taking my cervix but leaving my ovaries, which did not work. I have tried decongestant also as they said. All that made me sleepy, but no change. What can I do? It is going on for five years that I feel nothing. I do not have an STD or infection. This causes me to feel inadequate. Please help.

I am currently on Xanax 2, Prozac 80.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is not due to anything related to your physical anatomy. If there were anything abnormal physically, then you would get wet apart from sex too. It may be related to hyperstimulation. Prozac (Fluoxetine) has sexual side effects, usually calming but maybe stimulatory. You can change the dose or medicine. Try reducing your weight. Are you taking any supplements? It also has sexual side effects. You can skip foreplay to reduce stimulation.

Thank you doctor,

I have pernicious anemia, and I am taking Vitamin B12 and Folic acid. It happens within 30 seconds every time when the intercourse occurs.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Yes, as it happens with the initiation of sex only and not on other occasions, it does not seem to be due to overactive glands. Prozac increases neurotransmitter serotonin. It has different sexual effects in different doses. You can reduce the dose and see the results. If lowering the dose does not help, you may need to change the Prozac with a different drug, depending on the reason you are taking Prozac. You are taking vitamin B12. It would help if you also take a complete B-Complex group tablet and it because taking any Vitamin B alone for a long time may cause a deficiency of other vitamins.
