ATRIPLA
Jul 24, 2008

WHEN I HAVE AN ERECTION NOW MY ORGASM IS VERY LITTLE I WAS DIAGNOSED HIV + JAN 08 TAKING ATRIPLA SINCE THEN AFFECT MY SEMEN TAKING MEDS FOR TESTOSTERONE THAT IS LOW ALSO USE TO HAVE VERY GOOD ORGASM AN GOOD AMOUNT OF SEMEN PRIOR TO HIV, TAKING ZINC ,AMINO ACIDS ALSO NOW ANY SUGGESTIONS

Response from Dr. Henry

There is little information available about whether Atripla has a direct impact on semen volume or quality. I have not generally had patients report that problem to me. Being HIV+ often results on an increased rate of sexual performance issues related to both psychologic (increased worry/stress) and medical (nutrition/hormone/side effect of drugs et cetera) factors. A discussion with your HIV specialist and possibly a referral to urologist or sex therapist can be helpful in some situations. KH
