Management Of Erectile Dysfunction And Premature Ejaculation After Treatment For Anxiety Disorders?
Hello doctor, It’s been 2 months I complained about erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation end of 2019, I was declared stable and stopped taking drugs, although sometimes when my anxiety recurred, cardiac arrhythmia arises even though it is not severe .. But after stopping taking the drug, slowly my sexual ability decreases until finally it leads to erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation .. I am confused about what to do, whether to consult a SpKJ doctor or to a SpAndrology doctor …
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. Erectile dysfunction can indeed occur due to the influence of drugs, but that is not the only cause. Other conditions that can cause erectile dysfunction are:
Psychological influences, such as relationships with partners, depression, stress, and anxiety
High blood pressure, high blood sugar levels, and neurological diseases
Overweight or obese
Thyroid hormone abnormalities
Related area injuries
Impact of operations
So even though you do have a history of consuming drugs with side effects of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation, that is not necessarily the cause. You also need to see a psychiatrist if it is clear that your condition is caused by side effects of the drug. But while we don't know, we advise you to consult a urologist or an andrologist first. They will do a thorough examination of yourself and consider each of the risk factors, then treat you based on the specific cause. If the specific cause is medication, you may be sent back to your psychiatrist.
Meanwhile, control your mind so you don't stress too much because it can aggravate your present condition. We understand your disappointment with your sex performance, but stress won't help. So it is enough to live a healthy lifestyle, avoid cigarettes and alcohol, give understanding to your partner, do not need to take strong drugs without doctor's advice and immediately check yourself. So, hopefully answering your question.
