R u there doctor

I'm here. Some of the options could be to remove all porn videos from your computer and home. The less that is available to you, the less risk you'll have of watching it. You could also try talking to a counselor or a sex therapist. There are services available in person but also online if that is more comfortable for you.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

Going to regular counseling can be helpful to treat addictive behavior. A medication might be helpful with impulsive behavior but none have been specifically mentioned for porn addiction.

If you have any other questions, please let me know. Otherwise, please rate me a 5 or let me know how I can improve. Best wishes.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
