There seems to be : . . . A strong relationship between sensation seeking and adhd. For example, individuals with adhd often seek stimulation in an attempt to easy boredom. This stimulation can be as novel as nailbiting, or as extreme as sexual addiction. In either case, appropriate treatment is needed in order to prevent long-term problems.

ADD: It would not be automatic to assume that yoru sex cravings are caused by your add, both can be treated at the same time however. Consult with a clinical psychologist who can help with both problems. My best.
Dr. Caroline Cribari

Include a psychiatrist in the treatment team, as medications usually are needed to treat both ADD and sexual addiction.

Maybe yes/no: Retirement helps to reduce the stress of a job but in itself brings new forms of stress. If a pt has erectile dysfunction caused by a medical structural problem it won't get better? I guess you will have more time available for sexuality?

Which drugs?: It all depends on what drugs you are doing. Best treatment for opioid addiction is suboxone. May also consider inpatient detox and then an intensive out patient program. Also, support groups.

Why is sex addiction difficult to treat in younger people?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Peter Forster
Psychiatry 36 years experience
Focus of young: For a number of reasons sexual activity is much higher in young people anyway. For instance, hormone levels tend to stimulate interest. But also young people are surrounded by messages in the media and social media encouraging relationships and sexuality. All of this makes treatment harder, but certainly not possible.

Why does air come from my vagina during or after sex?

Dr. Michael Swor

Vaginal air bubbles: Sexual activity can sometimes cause air bubbles to collect in the vagina, which then are expelled during or after sex. It's not a problem and not unusual. Get your regular gyn checkup to be sure that is what it is.
