I am 27 and have experienced a first psychotic episode. I used to enjoy being able to masturbate, but since then I have been unable to climax. I am wondering if my psychosis has caused any psychological damage, or if it will just take time to recover?
Antipsychotic medications can have several possible sexual side-effects, including the problem you are experiencing. Many neurotransmitters and hormones play a role in maintaining normal sexual function, but if the function of any of these is altered by antidepressant or antipsychotic drugs, sexual dysfunction can occur.
