When figuring out how to deal with an increased sex drive, it’s important to be patient and if possible, have the support of a loving partner. Although it may seem like an increased sex drive would be a good thing, many people who deal with this problem find that no matter how much sexual gratification they receive, they are never truly satisfied. If this is an issue for you, there are several methods you can try to deal with an increased sex drive.
- Treat your anxiety to deal with your increased sex drive. If you have issues with stress and anxiety, this can actually cause an increased sex drive. This is because you have excess energy that has no outlet. When you try to release this energy through sexual activity, it won’t satisfy, leaving you feeling even more anxious. Stress and anxiety can be reduced by simple methods like yoga, meditation, deep breathing and hypnosis.
- Check the side effects of any medications that you are taking. Some medications can increase your sex drive to an uncomfortable degree. If you find that something you’re taking may be the problem, consult with your doctor about finding a substitute medication.
- Join a self-help or support group. These groups can help people who suffer from hyper-sexuality deal with their increased sex drives. You will have access to a trained counselor and a supportive group of people who understand what you’re going through and who can help you deal with your issues.
- Schedule an appointment with your doctor. Your doctor can make sure there are no underlying conditions causing your increased sex drive, such as a surge of hormones, and to possibly discuss using medication to deal with your increased sex drive. Many medications for dealing with this issue are available by prescription.
An increased sex drive can be caused by a serious emotional, psychological or physical issue. You should not attempt to self-diagnose yourself. Talk with your doctor before starting any treatment plans.
