I'm hesitant to post this, but I want to ask about
something that really, really bothers me presently.
I'm completely new to sex (26, male). There is more than one reason behind that... but let's just say that I never met someone that I wanted to be so close to before, because that is definitely one of the reasons.
My girlfriend and I have gotten very close lately, and I want nothing more than to be THAT close with her. She's willing, but I spent a long time last evening being very close to her and I just wasn't able to maintain the proper equipment, so to speak. A couple nights before this the same thing happened... though intercourse wasn't necessarily the end goal that night.
It feels difficult to even become ready enough physically to have sex right now. Since I'm new to this, I don't know if it is nerves... or if it's a side effect of a medication that I'm presently on. This seems to be something more recent, because I never before noticed any issue with this, albeit I was also never so close to a woman before either. Even by myself things seem to be off... like there is less sensation and it's still difficult to get things warmed up.
I'm kind of wondering if the triple antibiotic therapy I'm just finishing up could have anything to do with this. Or if it's something else...
My disease is medium right now. My bleeding stopped several days ago. The antibiotics have made my gut uncertain and I've had D sometimes, but for the most part my stools are brown, narrow and formed. I'm still going around 6 times a day, mostly in the morning. I don't feel like I need to use the restroom all the time, but there is still some urgency when I do need to go.
Medicines I'm on:
-Tylenol PM at night to sleep... most nights.
-Flagyl... Day 14 of 14
-Amoxicillin... Day 14 of 14
-Tetracycline... Day 14 of 14
Supplements I had been taking:
-A couple kinds of probiotics
I am always a bit stressed out it seems, but I don't feel anxious really. I just have a lot going on usually. I'm not presently exercising but am definitely thinking that I'll be starting up a regular routine to help get my body more healthy. (it's been hard to lift due to long work hours, a new relationship and added attention to my digestive health.)
Any thoughts about
all of this? My gf is beautiful, body, mind and soul, so that definitely isn't the problem
