orgasms w/out ejaculation
      #3291 - 04/06/00 10:06 PM

I'm 47-yrs old and have been living with HIV/AIDS for 12 years. My current "cocktail" consists of Viracept, Fortovase, Viramune, and Zerit. I've been on this combo for about a year. In the past couple of months I've noticed that when I reach the point of orgasm, nothing cums out--no semen--nada. The orgasm feels great, and it is sorta nice not to worry about cum stains on the sheets, but.... This really bothers me psychologically. Is there anyone out there taking one or more of these four drugs and experiencing the same situation? Or is my libido just really screwed up? I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions. Thanks!

I am 27 yo and just newly diagnosed with AIDS. I have suffered the same problem although the combination that I am on is somewhat different. I am on Norvir, Videx, Crixivan, and Zerit. The orgasm is not the problem as you said, but cumming is. Sometimes I will come a very small amount but it is such a thick concoction that it is almost painful. Do not feel that you are alone in this one bud! It can certainly make you feel a little like less of a man but it is good to know that I am not the only one.

I`d bet you anything it`s the [censored] Fortovase. Within a few days of starting it I was almost totally impotent - and when I could get it up? No juice. Now on Amprenavir and it`s great. Mr. Happy is back to his old self....
