My wife and I are both in our 30s although we don’t have kids yet. We started keeping niddah a few months ago.
My libido and sex drive is pretty high. I find it extremely difficult to go more than a day without some kind of sexual release. I get cranky and irritable and have a hard time thinking about anything else.
I try to keep as many halachot as possible including the prohibition against zera le’vatala. So for half the month I end up either feeling bad about doing that or trying to distract myself from pent up sexual frustration.
I’m sure I can’t be the only guy out there experiencing this.
I can’t think of any solutions but… Any suggestions at least to minimise the suffering?
