I think I am gay , Is there any treatment ?

Hi Dr.Lane .. Firstly, I excuse that my English maybe not so good as it isn't my first language
Secondly, Iam a 23 year old muslim guy from an arabic country .. I didn't have sex before but as of speaking of sexuality I'm more attracted to men .. I can't remeber the first time I had emotions or feeling towards a boy or a guy but I think it was when I was a primary school student . but Since my puberty which was around 14 yo I noticed I'm more attracted to other guys and that increased gradually that I think i'm exclusively gay now !
I didn't want to believe that at first that I tried a lot to watch straight porn but even when I do that I find myself attracted to the guy not the girl !
I feel guilty all the time and don't know waht to do
I didn't tell anyone in the real life about that as no one in my family or friends will accept hat , but some people online recommended that I should see a psychaitrist and ask for treatment .. I didn't go to a psychiatrist & preferred to find an online psychiatric instead as I will not trust anyone to figure out what I am
so , If there is any treatment for this please till me
and if you don't have much information about that please till me what to do or where to ask
Thank you

Hi Dragon, My apologies for

Hi Dragon,

My apologies for not responding to your post sooner.

Homosexuality isn't a disorder - it's not something that needs to be "treated" or "fixed". This isn't something you can just change, no matter how much you want to - your sexual orientation is part of who you are.

Unfortunately, if your family and friends can't or won't accept that you are gay (due to cultural or religious reasons), then the best thing I can recommend is, perhaps, working with a therapist on how to deal with that so you can come to terms with it and live your life in a way that makes you happy.

It doesn't sound like you need a psychiatrist or other mental health professional to "figure out what I am" - you already know that you are gay.

I hope this helps.

Dr. Lane
