My bf doesn't really want sex that much. It's not a change and I'm not worried he's cheatingor anything. He's on paxil and just has a problem c*****g. Is there anything I can do to help that? We have sex for hours and he just doesn't get off. It makes me feel bad.

Paxil killed my sex drive. I'm just getting off it and it's coming back but it was bad. I was like boarder line sex addict before it

I have been reading about it and it says that another good option would be welbutrin or to get viagra. I don't know if I should even bring this up. I read about it because I KNOW it's not his fault and i want to understand it because my first reaction was "well I guess I'm not good enough" but now I know it's really just the meds. I just want him to be happy and I don't want to be frustrated with it.



He brought it up last night and said it's not me and even when he wants to have sex, he doesn't want to at the same time because he feels like there is no point. He talked to his dr before and his dr suggested taking 1/2 a pill but that fucked him up pretty badly so I don't want him to do that. What do you suggest?

I had to come off it entirely. I've been off about a week and I'm starting to go back to ow I was. Still depressed but without all the shit from the Paxil. I'm just oing therapy right now. It's not helping as much as I'd like

It's definitely killed my sex drive to be on it. I can't find anything else that works though, and luckily my SO is okay with it.

We have sex at least once a week usually. But I just feel bad that he can't get off. I'm trying to find ways to help that. I am totally okay with being patient.
