Lower dose or switch: Delay or prevention of ejaculation is a side effect of all drugs in this class (ssris). Discuss these possible options with the prescriber of your meds: 1. Half dose on a day you want to be sexual 2. Delay taking the med until after sexual activity. 3. Change to a different anti-depressant known to have less frequent sexual side effects, such as venlafaxine. Good luck.

This is good advice. Ask your psychiatrist and general physician whether yohimbine might be appropriate.

Dr. Danny Proffitt

No aware of any: Why would your want to increase semen? If you are healthy, live a healthy lifestyle and practice safe sex, you should have all the semen produced that is necessary for normal funtion. Semen is a collective volume of testicular contribution, prostatic contribution and seminal vessicle contribution and perhaps a miniscule amount from other sources. It is what is is unless you have a specific illn.

Frustration?: I didn't see your other question, but if you are frustrated with your medications and the way they're working or not working, you need to take it up with your own doctor. There are many possible reasons for medicines not seeming to work -- anything from other existing conditions, need to change dosage, wrong diagnosis, or need to change medication itself. Good luck in talking with your doctor!

Can a virgin girl get pregnant with pre cum?

Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics 46 years experience
?Pre- cum ?: The sexual fluids produced by males often contain healthy swimmers (sperm) apart from the "main load" .Fingers or other body parts that have contact with this material will have the potential to pass a healthy sperm into the vaginal entrance & from there gain access to & fertilize an egg.To avoid pregnancy you must have your barrier in place to trap these fluids before they begin to leak.

You're not alone: Many men who take the stuff lose the ability to climax. Ask your physician whether you can go off for a day during which you plan sex, or whether you can try yohimbine.
