I am a 24 year old male. I was prescribed antibiotics and Prednisone pills and was given a Prednisone shot at an urgent care center for a bad allergic reaction/rash on my ankles that were caused by insect bites while I was in Costa Rica. Right as I was going off the prescriptions, I noticed a sudden decrease in the intensity of my orgasms. One day, things were normal, and then the next I noticed it immediately. There isn't any feeling coming from between my legs (prostate region possibly?), the muscles don't seem to contract without conscious effort, and there is hardly any feeling from the orgasm. Afterwards, the muscles in the region don't feel tired like they used to and it basically feels like nothing happened. This occurred about a month and a half ago and I was hoping things would improve but they haven't. I haven't had problems with becoming aroused, but orgasms have been highly disappointing. Could the steroids have caused this? What can I do to get things back to normal?
Sudden decrease in orgasm intensity is less likely to be caused by oral steroids. Medicines used in the treatment of various disorders like depression, anxiety, hypertension etc. may cause decreased libido but less likely for steroids to do so. Physical problems like Diabetes, Neuropathy etc. may too cause a decrease in a man’s libido. An evaluation from your family doctor is best to confirm the cause.
