Default Can Long Term Pot Use Cause Major Sexual Dysfunction? - 12-27-2008, 07:44 AM

Hey, I'm a pretty young guy and I have terrible sexual dysfunction. I have incredibly low libedoat all, almost no feeling for the opposite sex, no arousal from visual stimuli, impotence, weak nightly erections, and pleasureless orgasims. I think that all of this stems from my use of antidepressants. I didn't have any of these problems my entire life, up until I starte Paxil and around fifteen. I always assumed it was just a crappy side effect of the drug (its a common one)and I could quit whenever&then things would go back to normal. But after 4 1/2 years, things got so bad I finally did just that. It's been 8 months and I have all the same side effects. The only other thing that could be it is the fact that I have been a long-term, chronic pot smoker for about 4 years. I've heard of pot giving people sexual problems, both all of those problems? And when they're the same side effects known to be caused by the other drug? I don't think pot is the cause, what do you think?Yeah, I'm going back soon. I haven't had all my hormones checked, but it seems to me that the cause is the antidepressants I took (SSRIS). They are well known to cause all the problems I have, it just that usually the side effects go away after you stop them. But I took them for several years and there are some people who say that they had the same thing happen, there is even a yahoo group of people who stopped the drugs and they still have all these same sexual problems. But I've read and heard a lot about marijuana causing sexual dysfuction and it is scaring me that maybe my long term daily pot use is to blame. I know pot can cause sexual problems, but all these and at such severity where sex is wanted but not at all possible? I mean, has anyone here ever actually gotten THIS sexually messed up on just pot, even from daily use? I get potcan give you some sexual problems, but to have it totally sexually destroy you?

Pot is not the cause. Have you consulted a doc?
