This is something you should let your doctor know, intimacy is an important part of wellness (see Maslow's hierarchy of needs) and your doc might be able to switch your medication to one that doesn't have the same side effect. Sincerely, concerned mental health nurse.
You might want to put an asterisk by that "lost your virginity" statement. It may not be true in all circles.
Mm, speak to your doctor about med change? I take 40mg Citalopram (Celexa) and have little-to-no side effects and pretty great orgasms. I'm a girl, so maybe it would be different, but still.
I was on 20mg escitalopram which is a sister drug and I experienced similar side effects. Sexual side effects are usually the most common. The oddest thing though was that my sex drive went up not down like it usually does. Which made wanking for hours on end hoping to god that you can finally orgasm, a pain in the ass.
Difficulty with orgasm for men on anti-depressants is actually quite common. A lot of doctors will prescribe an anti-depressant to men who suffer from PE because of it. It doesn't have the same effect on women from what I've noticed. So my recommendation would be to try to work the bump and grind around your medication schedule.
