Hallo. Do you think I might have PSSD?

Unread post by The Self Improver »

Hello, I'm a 25M from Brazil.

The possibility of PSSD worries me a bit since it was indicated as a possible cause of my mysterious lack of sexual interest. I'm trying to figure out if I have that disease and want you to help me with that.

I'll be brief:

* Never did illegal drugs, but I used to drink a lot, heavily, until some awful episodes of psychosis made me quit. Took me two years, but I'm now 100% sober for 6 months.
* I took antidepressants during my teens. Unfortunately, I don't remember for how long. All I know is that the doses were never high. I took fluoxetine and paroxetine.
* I went to several psychiatrists and psychologists throughout my life, and I've never been diagnosed with a mental condition. But I do suspect I have slight autism or perhaps TDAH.
* My testosterone is low, but apparently within the normal range

Now my sexuality:

* I can reach an orgasm, and it feels alright. I do watch porn every now and then. However, I don't think that the effort of trying to get real sex compensates. It is not worth the effort, do you know what I mean?
* If I met a woman, I would be scared if she wanted to have sex with me. I wouldn't know how to handle the situation, and that has nothing to do with shyness or anything. I know I won't be able to do it.
* I never had sex by the way. To me, that's just dumb and meaningless and doesn't change a thing in anyone's life. I don't know why being a virgin is Taboo. No idea at all. I've been trying to figure out what's going on for months and I find no answer. I've seen doctors, by the way.

Hi,

Welcome to the forum!

Can I ask what age you started taking antidepressants and if you felt any differently before this?

This does not sound like true PSSD.

This is quite an assumption based on the little information provided. I hope that it isn’t but it’s very possible

Sorry for taking so long to reply. Unfortunately, I really can't remember how my sexual desire used to be. I believe it was normal because I had hit puberty not long before the antidepressants. If you have more questions, I'll try my best to answer them. I've always had weak memory, by the way, can't figure out what the cause of that is.

Just curious. If you think sex is a waste of time and you are better off living life without it, why is having PSSD bothering you?
