I was on Paxil from ages 18-26. I quit last year and am now 27. I think it is somewhat well know that SSRIs cause low libido, but I was stunned to learn after withdrawing that they cause loss of feelings of love and stunt the desire to find a partner. Suddenly everything made sense...I never had any real interest in dating and though plenty of guys were interested, I simply couldn't feel a connection with anyone. When I was in college, people pairing off and falling in love just looked silly to me. I realize now that my emotions were so blunted that normal human behavior seemed alien to me.
Anyway, after my physical withdrawal symptoms returned, one of the first things I noticed was a strong desire to find a life partner and start a family. I'm afraid I may have missed my chance.
I'm not sure what exactly I'm asking, but maybe if anyone has been through the same thing or can offer hope?
