So I went to see an andrologist about low libido and ED issues in September.
I got my testosterone checked at the time and it was quite low:
273. 79 (Ref 242.09 - 827.13)
Additional labs from Sept:
- FSH Male 2.1 (Ref 1.9-13.0)
- ICSH 3.19 (1.50-9.30)
- Estradiol Male 97.0 (00 - 141.6)
- Free Testo 0.187 (0.167-0.588)
- Prolactin Male 0.23 (0.09 - 0.76)
- SHBG - 32.50
So my doc prescribed me a course of Clomid for 2 months.
He also saw from a previous ultrasound that I had cysts and a varicocele in my balls so he said it would be best to remove it as the former can cause infertility issues and impair T levels. So I got it done around the same time.
I got my hormone levels checked last week and got my results today and T levels were 821.37 (Ref 242.09 - 827.13) but my Estradiol levels were 54 (Ref 00-38.52), so they are through the roof. My doc did not make me do any other hormones except T and E this time.
I would like to add that I have not experienced any corresponding improvement in sexual function as result of high T levels. And I really want to change this. My libido is still low and I am still experiencing ED.
So my doc put me on Arimidex 0.5mg a day and told me to stop taking clomid. Is this the best course of action?
Also I want to add that my penis feels quite numb at the moment & the sensitivity is reduced. I got a penile doppler ultrasound around 2 weeks ago (to rule out veinous leak) whereby they injected some substance to induce an erection. Could the injection have caused nerve damage leading to numb penis & reduced sensitivity?
How can I start experiencing full benefits of high T?
Appreciate advice and replies
