Overactive Libito

Patient

Q: I am 43 and my wife is 40. We have a very good relationship. As we are getting older her sexdrive has decreased greatly while mine seems to be getting stronger. This is starting to cause a strain in our relationship. The funny thing is I dont think I even want it that much it's like an urge that can't be stoped. It's aggravating for my wife and it's frustrating me that I can't just stop wanting sex so often. We have talked about this often and both agree it would be great to be able to take a vacation from sex for a long time (at least 6mos. to a year). Then it would seem special again, then after that only every now and then instead of every night. I have researched the internet and read alot about Depo-Provera and it's effects on men. This seems like the perfect thing. I've read about all the possible side effects and I'm ok with them. Would this be a cure for us and are doctors willing to perscribe this for men?
