Hey guys, im 24 and have ED for about 5-6 years where i’ve been unable to have proper enjoyable sex with a women. It’s been brutal and i kind of adopted a defeateist attitude to it and and my life.
Did some tests and saw i had low T so i’ve been on TRT now for 9 months and while my body composition and strength has gotten alot better, i still have ED where i can get like 60-70% hard and can barely maintain it for long.
I I went to a sports medicine clinic and got TRT through there (under the table kinda deal) and had one initial blood test done to check my levels where i did have low T.
Apart from the low T, is there anything else that stands out that could be the factor for my ED and ill health?
IGF-1 30.7 (15.2-46.9)
Test 9.5nmol/l (8.0 - 30.0)
PSA 0.49ug/l (<2.51)
DHEA-S 6.1umol/l (4.8 - 13.9)
LH 8iu/l (2-8)
Unfortunately these are the only results the sports medicine person had taken. In addition, i have a general haematology of whole blood results
I haven’t had any extra blood work in the 9 months ive been on TRT (i know :/) which is a dose of 250mg of cyp with 1mg of armidex the day of injection.
The first few months i had strong morning wood (first time since i was a teenager) but it subsided and now my erections are as weak as they used to be pre TRT. I’ve also been having hairloss issues with a thinning crown and receding temple as well at the moment and after 9 months, i’m yet to have a positive considerable change in my life to warrant to keep going with it.
i’m sorry that this is all over the place and i know i’m an idiot for not being more stringent in testing my own levels and being more aware, i really am an idiot! i wish i was on top of my testing and knew what was happening inside my body! Sorry about the long post!
tldr; Strong ED and mild depression and low T made me want to get on TRT. Are there any indicators on my pre TRT to levels to indicate any reason for the bad ED? or was more testing needed?
thank you so much
