    I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling with your mental health - may Allah ease your burdens and reward you for what you have already overcome. If your psychiatrist advises that you need to stay on the medication for 6 more months, then it's important to try to do this, to maximise your chances of making a good recovery. InshaAllah, your wife should be supportive and encourage you to do this.

    Problems with sexual function (premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, etc) can be side effects of some medications, but they can also be symptoms of depression itself. If you're concerned, it might be helpful to let your psychiatrist know about the problems you're having, as they may be able to help identify what's causing these difficulties. They might even be able to adjust your medication to help alleviate some of the problems.

    Masturbation can be a bit of a "hot topic", and there are several views on whether this is haram or makruh (we've a lot of posts about this in our archives, if you're interested in reading about that). One thing that is clear though, is that we should not be looking at pornography. Pornography involves looking at the awrahs of others, while they carry out sexual acts (often for money or due to being coerced) - that's not something that we should be supporting, as it's indecent. I'd advise that you read the articles about masturbation and make up your own mind about whether you view this as permissible or not, and that you avoid watching any more pornography.

    May Allah bless you and your future wife with a happy and successful marriage.

  2. OP: Feels Like I'm gonna hurt my Family Member, Niece, Nephew..(e.g Hurt them to death)

    You want to hurt family members.....Do you you have an extreme anger problem? Do you want to hurt people you don't know?

    You are scared that you will touch any private part of Women? Do you have that feeling when you are among your relatives?.

    Have you told your psychiatrist about thought of hurting your relatives or touching starngers (women)?

    Now I have low erection and Pre mature Ejaculation Symptoms Like Urgency to release Sperm during Masturbation...........

    You can delay ejaculation during masturbation, by slowing down. There is no pre mature ejaculation during masturbation.

    You should talk to your psychiatrist about your concerns about sex. He may change your medicine to help you.

    Jazakallahu Khair for the Response.

    May Allah Reward you for helping me.

    Psychiatrist told me that Medicines Which he prescribed will not affect adversely my Erection..But I believe I got less blood supply to the Pelvic Floor and that is Why Erection weakens..

    I know some food helps to overcome this..

    Please Provide me the Details of the food.

    Jazakallahu Khair
