¡Cuántas veces he atendido las quejas con respecto a la pérdida de apetito y las dificultades para alcanzar el orgasmo de mis pacientes cuando están tomando antidepresivos! La inmensa mayoría de los antidepresivos más utilizados tienen efectos secundarios en este área y reducen notablemente tanto las ganas de sexo como la capacidad de disfrutar con el mismo.

Por fin comienza a investigarse sobre cómo reducir este importante inconveniente. Quiero compartir el abstract de un interesante artículo sobre cómo mejorar la vida sexual de las mujeres que toman antidepresivos. Articulo publicado en Neuropsychopharmacology and Neuroscience Group del Dr. Luis Mariani.

Exercise Improves Sexual Function In Women Taking Antidepressants

Depression and Anxiety Journal

Background
In laboratory studies, exercise immediately before sexual stimuli improved sexual arousal of women taking antidepressants [1]. We evaluated if exercise improves sexual desire, orgasm, and global sexual functioning in women experiencing antidepressant-induced sexual side effects.

Methods
Fifty-two women who were reporting antidepressant sexual side effects were followed for 3 weeks of sexual activity only. They were randomized to complete either three weeks of exercise immediately before sexual activity (3×/week) or 3 weeks of exercise separate from sexual activity (3×/week). At the end of the first exercise arm, participants crossed to the other. We measured sexual functioning, sexual satisfaction, depression, and physical health.

Results
Exercise immediately prior to sexual activity significantly improved sexual desire and, for women with sexual dysfunction at baseline, global sexual function. Scheduling regular sexual activity significantly improved orgasm function; exercise did not increase this benefit. Neither regular sexual activity nor exercise significantly changed sexual satisfaction.

Conclusions
Scheduling regular sexual activity and exercise may be an effective tool for the behavioral management of sexual side effects of antidepressants.
