Our expert says:
Based on the description of your partner's symptoms it appears that he may possibly have a condition known as postcoital dysphoria.
More often than not the underlying cause is psychological in nature and may find its sources in earlier life painful and/or traumatic experiences.
So you may be dealing with a psychological concern which is presenting in the arena of sexuality. To address the problem may not lie in the sexual arena, but in the psychological. The fact that you indicate that he also experiences more generally understood depression further supports what I am thinking and wishing to suggest here.
My recommendation is that he seek help in the form of psychotherapy in addition to the medical treatment he is already recieving for the depression.By means of the psychotherapy he may be able to explore what lies behind the postcoital dysphoric experience and the insight he could gain could help him work through the original experience and the consequences there-of for him emotionally and psychologically which in turn could relieve the postcoital dysphoria reaction.
