Was PSSD delayed or immediate after quiting SSRI?

Can I ask you important question for me now. When your PSSD started? Was it right after you stopped taking SSRI or it was delayed. And if so, how much delayed?

had sexual dysfunction on SSRIs, but was tolerable until around 2 weeks after stopping, that's when things got really bad

Can't say, unfortunatelly. It took some time for me to notice and realize that I completely lost my sexuality. And years later still that I realized that there was PSSD. First I attributed the loss to my miserable life and sexual relationship. Did think, that was the reason and didn't think it was permanent and would improve when my life would improve...

I noticed during SSRI use that watching porn has become quite boring and I thought that this was due to my depression still not being cured completely. I knew that depression can kill your libido and I thought that I wasn't cured yet. Then after a year of SSRI's I stopped cold turkey and for the next six months wasn't interested in women at all. Yes, I watched porn but that didn't gave me any real pleasure, it was just a nasty habit I developed.

I noticed it fully when I was with a girl on a trip to Czech republic when I couldn't get an erection and also there was no desire to fuck at all. I was completely lost at that time and after a couple of months I found PSSD. Now i have PSSD and possibly depression again. FFS, how can one not be depressed after more than a three and a half years of no real desire for sex?!?

I think it was in the making when my Prozac dosages became irregular. But when I stopped taking it altogether PSSD suddenly kicked in one fine night. I think it was a ~week after stopping Prozac completely.

It worked relatively well while taking ssri. My problems started after stopping It.
I have always thought that PSSD has nothing to do with the libido and erection problems that occur while you are on SSRI, but it is like a switch that is turned off when stopping the medication, perhaps as a body response to a rebound of the Sexuality inhibited by drugs. And the body encourages that new rebound of excessively high quality by inhibiting or extinguishing it.
