Sex Drive

May 4, 2003

Sorry about my english, but I'm portuguese. I'm having a bad time for a long time because my sex drive is completely gone. I'm married and I've tried a lot of sex pscologists to help me,but didn't work. I don't know if it has to do with my self-esteem,which is very low,maybe because of lipodystrophy.I've been on anti-depressants but not anymore.Is there anything else I could try? If so,please let me know. Thank you

Response from Mr. Shernoff

Here in the United States, when a man is experiencing low sex drive (I am not sure what your gender is, since you did not identify as either a man or a woman), many doctors prescribe testosterone replacement therapy which can be administered in at least three different ways. Discuss this possibiity with your doctor. It does help alot of men regain their sex drives.

Good luck.
