Alexander, I was interested in this study too. I don't normally pay much attention to the methodology of these medication studies since I am not a scientist (and also don't have time to read them thoroughly), but I did notice there was a control group. Maybe you could give us a link or citation, those interested could read more about this?

I've come across studies in the past where medications helped regulate the HPA for those with PTSD. Studies have shown people with childhood trauma have irregular HPA regulation to begin with, so I've read. Not that you've personally had childhood trauma-I think I remember your saying that you did not--but I just wanted to point that out.

Also, I take some health-related courses and in doing some (unrelated) research, I came across an article that men in Denmark (if your screename reflects your country of origin!) have unusually low testostorone levels in comparison with those in other states. I'm not kidding-you should google that.

Alexander, your situation really sucks. I'd be pssed off if drugs were the cause of the destruction of my sex life--for sure. I mean let's face it, sex is a big part of the human experience. I can't really imagine what it would be like, but it seems it would be like having a part of your autonomy denied. Autonomy is probably not the right word. I can't even find the word.

You are so young and it just sucks. I don't post here very much anymore, but I do read your posts from time to time, wondering if you've gotten better. Hang in there :)

RE: the control group:

...and 68 age-matched healthy fertile men who had never received a psychiatric diagnosis (group 3) served as controls.

...Compared with normal controls, the subjects taking SSRIs had significantly lower serum levels of LH, FSH, and testosterone. In addition, there were significantly decreased LH and FSH responses to gonadotropin-releasing hormone test in groups 1 and 2 compared with normal controls.
