Common Anti-Depressants May Cause Infertility and Sexual Problems in Men
Hormone Replacement Therapy available at American Longevity Center can help with mild depression and sexual side-effects of anti-depressant drugs.
(MIAMI, FL) – Scientists have found a new unintended side-effect for men from one of the most commonly prescribed types of anti-depression medications. Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors – better known as SSRI antidepressants, a class that includes medications like Zoloft, Prozac, and Paxil – have been found to lower the male sperm count by up to 50 percent, in addition to harming motility and damaging the shape of the sperm.
These damaged sperm can have difficulty travelling, which decreases the chances of successful fertilization significantly. These SSRI-related effects can begin to show within one month of prescription, and can cause infertility when coupled with the already negative impact that depression has on testosterone levels and sexual health. SSRIs can also lower sex drive and cause sexual performance issues.
Though the sexual effects of SSRIs eventually subside following cessation of the medication, it’s a concern for anyone trying to conceive or experiencing a diminished sex life. Fortunately, many male sexual problems are caused by low testosterone levels, a condition which is easily treated at advanced clinics like American Longevity Center.
Using Hormone Replacement Therapy, the body’s natural production of testosterone is supplemented, and a healthy hormonal balance is restored. Many male sexual issues, including those caused by medications, can be eliminated through testosterone treatments. In addition, higher levels of testosterone lead to an increased sperm count, which could help counteract the problems that face individuals experiencing the negative SSRI-related side effects.
American Longevity Center’s testosterone is available as an oral supplement, cream or in injectable form.
Hormone replacement therapy can also help men with depression or emotional issues, as often these problems can be caused or exacerbated by low testosterone levels. For men living with sexual issues or depression, or who have concerns about possible side-effects they may be experiencing from SSRI anti-depression, HRT could be the answer. There’s no reason to suffer in silence when treatment is simple, fast-acting, and effective. The solution is as easy as a phone call to the American Longevity Center!
