Zoloft and Sexual side effects?

I have been on Zoloft for about a week now and have experienced some sexual side effects. I have read on askapatient.com that a lot of users say the side effects subside. Is this the case? And if so, how long will it take? Note I am only on a small dosage (50mg) per day.

    I had sexual side effects on zoloft. They went away after a few weeks, but if you continue to have these problems talk to your doctor, and they will give a medication to make those side effects go away.

    Well, I can tell you from experience what the side effects for women are. Decreased libido, decreased ability to climax from intercourse, and literal impotence. Basically, no matter how great everything is, it just doesn't do anything for you. I've had some relief by adding a second drug with fewer sexual side effects. Good luck! It's a tough situation for both involved.

    had to get off them. no real desires at all. kicked the depression right in the face. said i was tired of having medicine control who i was. stopped taking it cold turkey and never took anything again.

    My husband hated the drop in libido and it didn't improve after 3 months, so he switched meds.
