🤗  Explanation of health issue

➕ Positive Approach

📆 Easy Consultation Scheduling

I have been married for 3 years now but have been experiencing low sexual desire throughout. During my consultation with Dr. Deshpande, I was able to understand that my depression medications caused the symptoms of low sexual desire and delayed ejaculation. I didn’t know that my mental health could affect my sexual health. With just one consultation, Dr. Deshpande clarified my issues and modified my treatment which helped me save my marriage.

Our online experience was very streamlined, great therapy sessions

📄 Effective Treatment Results

My wife and I have been married for 3+ years and we were not able to consummate our marriage. We were skeptical about an online consultation but were pleasantly surprised with how it went. Dr. Deshpande did not only prescribe medications that worked, but also advised that my wife and I undergo couple sex therapy. I can say that since we have started, we have already seen positive results.
