    Trouble with high libido

    Hello doctor,
    I am a 30 year old male, residing in India.
    From about past 5 + years I have been struggling with a high libido. The libido is causing distress and even getting past the day is now a struggle. The erection are too many atlest partial ones if not full. There is always a need for ejaquilation. That only temporarily relaxes only to come back in sometime.
    I have visited a few psychiatrists and sexologists but not much has changed I wanted to know if there is any way the stop the erection of penis. Impotency is not a concern for me as living a normal life is more than important. I know erections and sex drive are a normal process but too much of anything is too bad.

    I have been put on antidepressants at medium dosages to relax the mind but is not helping much

    Any advice on treatment or guidance will be of a big help

    Hi The only problem is by cutting back your libido would mean affecting your testosterone, and testosterone has a lot more uses apart from giving us our libido and erections, I think its something your just going to have to live with.

    I do suggest you come off the antidepressants, get into doing meditation you may find this could be of help, also learn mind over matter to suppress your erections.

    You mention your erections and your need for ejaculation ... but mention nothing about masturbating. Does masturbating regularly help or do you try to avoid masturbating and, if so, why?

        I do masturbate regularly 1 to 2 times a day. It seems to reduce erections a bit but drive never goes down
