    I'm 17 and AFAB (transmasculine), and ever since I went on antidepressants it's been really hard for me to orgasm (taking 4+ hours), even with a showerhead and water. I don't even do it that often, maybe once every week or two, because it's so frustrating - but I kind of need to, you know? I'm normally on my phone reading fanfiction while I masturbate, but my parents are going to make me re-enact Screen Time (I had disabled it) on my phone and won't let me have it back until I do. I would be fine with them just restricting games and social media, but don't want them to restrict browsers for obvious reasons. I feel trapped and more miserable than usual, and I don't know what to do.

    Hi there, glad you reached out. So medications can affect your libido, but this is a matter that you should discuss with your psychiatrist or doctor (whomever prescribed you). Maybe start to exercise for some sort of release of endorphins and to increase serotonin it might help to reduce stress about anything. Here is info about how exercise can help with depression and anxiety Now about your parents restricting things that is something that you would have to discuss with them since and unfortunately they have that power being your parents. If you want to talk about this or anything please text or call 2NDFLOOR anytime at 888-222-2228.

      Hello. Unfortunately, a common side effect from taking medications like anti-depressants is a decrease in libido. I think in this situation it is very important to discuss your concerns with your prescribing doctor. They should be able to help you out, whether it be adjusting your dose or recommendations in increasing your libido. I also like the suggestion from the first reply to exercise. It is true that exercise can help to relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. It can help to relieve any stress that is interrupting your libido or the stress of this situation. It can also help to increase your libido. Also, other stress relieving activities will help like painting, playing music, going on nature walks, etc can help overcome any mental blocks you might be experiencing that is getting in the way of your libido or simply relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. If your screen time needs to decrease, maybe it could be helpful to get a library card and rent some romance novels. I know it's not fan fiction but it may do the trick!
