Default Don't want sex anymore

My meds got increased and now i have no desire for sex. I don't know if i should mention it because it was a real problem before. Kind of nice to not want it.

I had fantasies of asking my ex to have an affair, we were alone which never happens, and i could have brought it up. I didn't. Which is good.

But that's how sex crazy i was and now guys offering I'm like no i don't want that person touching me. Never used to care because i wanted sex so bad. Finally told a guy i was dating just don't want to see him, he wanted to have sex, i don't. I pushed it off as long as possible.

I don't know if it's because I've become a christian or what.

I am pretty sure that decreased sexual desire is a common side effect of many anti-depressants. Is this causing you a lot of distress or interfering with a close romantic relationship? If not maybe just give it some time as you adjust to the medication the issue may work itself out.

Christians have sex so I doubt you donít want sex because of that. Itís likely med side effects. My sex drive went downhill after I hit menopause at 52, so thatís that too
