Hey guys, I'm 19 and over the past couple of years I've had quite a low sex drive. I get morning erections very rarely, maybe, once every couple of weeks. I've had performance issues in the past and struggled to maintain erect and achieve full erections.
I'm about 5"10, average weight and build. Have a small amount of body fat on my lower abdomen but nothing major. I went to the doctors around this time last year with my issues and she sent me off for some blood work which I will post below.
For some reason on this print out it doesn't show my FSH, LH or E2 levels. If I remember rightly my FSH and LH levels were about a quarter off the end of the reference range and my E2 levels were just below the reference range.
Because the doctor dismissed these levels as all being normal I decided to do some of my own research. Like many others I found that although my Free test levels are within the reference range, they're very sub-optimal for my age. It would be expected that I should be somewhere closer to 20 nmol/L.
After a year of actively avoiding sexual opportunities I decided I need to make more of an effort to get this sorted. I went back to my doctor, he told me that even though these levels might be slightly low for my age they're still normal . But after a long appointment he said he'd check the levels of my sex hormones again (I tried to get others which are suggested on the site but he wouldn't let me). He thinks that I'm just stressed about it and that's what's causing the issues. He's now prescribed me viagra to see if this will help me overcome my psychological set backs, if there are any. And if there are any stronger abnormalities in the blood work he'll refer me to a urologist or endocrinologist.
Sorry for the lengthy post.
Feel free to ask questions.
I appreciate any responses or advice, thanks!
