Depression and sadness are two different things. It is advised to visit a psychologist or psychiatrist who will diagnose you. Sometimes you may be sad and not necessarily depressed. Depression affects your relationship ultimately affecting your sex life.
Depression is a disease and has to be treated likewise. It is something that needs to be talked about, and not anything to be ashamed, sad or embarrassed about. When you share how you feel it may help you to take that feeling away.
If you are depressed it is only wise to seek help at the earliest. You may feel lonely, less loved and not important, which is not true. You can talk to your close friend, parents, someone that you trust or your therapist.
Trust me it only gets better by time if you speak your heart out on what is going on in your life and how you feel.
Depression may result in mood shifts, not always but most of the time yes. So things that used to give you pleasure may not feel the same. You may not feel the urge to experience a pleasure. This may take a slight toll on your relationship as your partner may want to have sex but you would not be in the mood for it.
Depressed people are emotionally sensitive. It is because of the chemical imbalances in your brain. It is not permanent and if you work on it by taking therapy it will help you a lot in getting better eventually.
Emotional sensitiveness will make you feel less worthy of the love that you get. It may also make you feel like your partner doesn’t love you anymore which will eventually refrain you from getting close to your partner.
Always remember, you are worthy to be loved and to love. There is nothing that makes you less worthy and you will slowly get over this feeling, it will take time and it is Temporary.
When you visit your psychologist he may prescribe you medicines that may curb your willingness to have sex. You may not feel like having sex or coming close to your partner.
In that case, you might consider to make changes in your medicines and ask your doctor to prescribe you medicines that will not lower your sexual appeal.
You can also consider visiting a sex therapist with your partner to better your physical relationship. Sex therapists resolve the problems causing difficulties in your sexual relationship. The therapist will eliminate misunderstandings between you and your partner.
They know it is a physical process and it requires attraction between the couple and thus will work on increasing intimacy between you and your partner. It will eventually lead you to better your relationship, increase intimacy and have a Healthy Sex Life.
