ECT sexual side effects...great difficulty in getting and maintaining an erection, impossible to reach an orgasm. I've tried nearly any drug you can think of over the years, I've had plenty of sexual side effects, but nothing anywhere near as dramatic as ECT. Viagra has always worked for me in the past when I needed it, but it was useless against ECT.
Looking back with the benefit of hindsight, I would have avoided ECT bigtime unless my life was in danger from possible suicide. ECT can definitely work, but not without paying some costs, which I'm sure vary a lot from person to person.
I think ECT is a lot more attractive and should be considered when you are aware upfront to keep an eye out for strange things. Nobody ever told me strange things might happen, and thus I got caught offguard.
