So I'm currently planning a therapist to deal with my ocd as I feel that's the only way to make me feel better. However, I'm scared I'm gonna have to take medicine to make me feel better. It's not about the medicine that's the problem. Is that I'm scared i won't have a fulfilling sex life anymore as I've been told SSRI can lower libido massively. Is this permanent? How long is the libido lowered for? Will my sex life be ruined?
And also do I need to take SSRIs? I read alot of ocd patients just take ERP to feel better without medicine. I'm wishing this is the step forward I need to take.
