I am having the exact same problem, I am a 17 year old male who has completely lost interest in any sex what so ever, I've always been attracted to girls and of about five months ago, my interest has completely dropped, I've been diagnosed with OCD a long time ago, I also went through a period of losing a lot of friends and a relationship went horrible before this all started, my friend had also came out of the closet to me and asked if I was gay about a month or two before I started having these problems, my sex drive is generally little to none and I honestly can't stop thinking about this, my doctors seem to think it's a legitimate problem and have prescribed medication, i.e: luvox and risperdal, as well as trazedone for sleep aid. I have gone through a little bit of CBT, which has helped a little, it hasn't gotten rid of the thoughts though, I know this problem is making anyone who has it sick to their stomachs and making them feel like their past is all a lie. I have been dating a girl for three months and don't want to give her up, but my obsession is basically telling me to, but I honestly have never felt attracted to a male before. IS THIS TESTOSTERONE OR AN ACTUAL SEXUALITY CRISIS?
hey i am an 18 year old male. about a year ago i had a similar problem i was conivced i was a homo. i didnt want to be i wanted nuthing more than to be with an enjoy women. Eventually you both will realize that you are whatever you want to be and it sounds like you two are attracted to women. as far as the low testosterone is concered i think its just the ocd n depression hope this helpsss
This seems to be a very common age group for hocd. I'm a women so I don't know about the testosterone thing, but you should try reading other posts and responses about hocd.
I have OCD VERY bad as well, except the intrusive thoughts are not one, not two, but three types.. incest, hocd, murder/harm etc
I got bloodwork done but have not gotten results yet.. however from reading up on this matter I believe there is a strong correlation between testosterone and OCD! Estrogen also seems to be involved as well.. Low T is a good probability or high aromatase levels (converts Test to Estrogen)...
I have found OTC AI's (Aromatase Inhibitors) seem to help a little however it is mainly psychological and about dealing with the thoughts.. which is very difficult. Others however I've heard react bad to Anti-E's so for everyones its different.
I've read studies showing how Testosterone acts to modulate Dopamine (not increase as some think) and also inhibit Reuptake of Serotonin which is the same thing SSRIs do if thats the case then TRT/HCG may be the answer..
What have you done to help you with those three intrusive thoughts that you have? Have you learned CBT, cognitive behavioral therapy?
u should probably try cognitive behavioural therapy(CBT)...m a doctor with almost the same ocd thoughts..i was tired,depressed all the time,flashes of very disturbing images,disturbing thoughts...it goes on..u'll be knowin it..it is called PURE 'O' OCD...u dont have to worry.better than all these drugs, cognitive behavioural therapy will help you the most. try 2 taper down any drugs already taking, start with CBT,U CAN DO THIS ON YOUR OWN IF U DON'T WANT 2 GO 2 A PSYCHIATRIST.But be watchful,keep a record of your progress,it would lead to tremendous amount of anxiety initially but it will fetch you results. dont think i'm marketing this, but do read a book called OCD WORK BOOK(WRITTEN BY DR.HYMAN AND PEDRICK). trust me this is treatable and you will get better..ALL THE BEST!!!!
Hi, I'm a 14-year-old girl and i don't know if i have hocd or low estrogen, up until a month ago i have never had a problem but know every day i question myself i hate it. I have always thoughts guys were very attractive and now i lost interest, i have never really like the thought of doing the nasty- sorry i have a problem with saying that-. Now i think a lot of girls are pretty and my mind keeps thinking that i want this. Intrusive and irrational thoughts keep popping up in my mind and my mind just keeps thinking that there normal and that's what i want even though i have never been interested in that and I can't really picture being with a girl I just think of hanging out with my friends but when i do my mind doesn't exactly turn away automatically and I'm so scared just please help me I'm getting a doctors appointment to get tested for low estrogen.
