I'm 24 now. For the record, back when I was 16-18 I could take horny goat weed & tribulus and be rock hard for sex. Now that stuff does nothing, but cialis or viagra will get me hard enough for sex but it still lacks the rigidity of a 'normal' erection (its more like my penis is way swollen up) when I use that stuff.
Another weird thing to note is that sometimes in the morning when I wake up and I have to pee really bad I find myself with a weak erection. Doesn't happen too often, and otherwise no morning woods.
No history of accidents/trauma, no bike riding, etc.
The doc said testes are normal size, they seem a little smaller than what I've seen (but then again everything Ive seen is in porns). They are relatively firm. They don't ache on a regular basis and never have. Once in a blue moon they have ached for no reason but thats pretty rare.
Response to major stress = not sure exactly what you're looking for here, but w/ regard to work..I typically procrastinate until the point where I can FEEL the stress and them I get it done. If you mean like a death or something, it usually makes me sad and introverted/antisocial.
Age = 24
Height 5' 11"
Weight = 178
Waist = 32 (measurement around my belly is about 33.5)
When I started college at 18 I was on relatively high doses of antidepressants (SSRI's) and also smoking a lot of pot and drinking frequently. I gained weight, most all around my belly ('beer gut'). I currently exercise on a regular basis and still do not appear to have lost any of that fat. I've never had a Bodyfat test, but by looks, almost all my fat is in my belly and some in legs. For 3 years I have been completely clean of drugs/alcohol and also have been of antidepressants for 3 yrs. I was convinced the ED was from the antidepressants but there was absolutely no improvement after I got off them.
I don't get cold easily, in fact I am usually the one who wants the A/C colder when everyone else is already cold.
Skin, nails, hair all appear to be fine, not brittle or dry.
Meds & OTC = Advair for asthma, vitamin D, fish oil, occasionally gingko biloba. no multivitamin right now
I do use iodized salt at home.
Other health issues = mild asthma, fatigue (was actually diagnosed as narcolepsy at one point but then taken back and rediagnosed as 'idiopathic hypersomnia' - basically excessive tiredness that the doc can't explain), and I would say self diagnosed ADD
Mood problems = recently in the past 6-12mo feeling more depressed..I have always been relatively shy and introverted
No digestion problems and no antiacids ever.
Thyroid = When I saw the endocrinologist he said my thyroid was enlarged. In the bloodwork he did, he included all the thyroid related hormones and said they were all normal. He also ordered an ultrasound of my thyroid to look for nodules, etc. and it came back ok.
Diet = High protein (trying to build muscle mass)..I try to eat at least my body weight in grams of protein daily. I don't eat much fast food or junk food. Decent amount of carbs from oatmeal, pasta, brown rice etc. I don't calorie count to a T but I am conscious of it and overall it's a relatively healthy diet I think.
This may or may not be related but at age of 24 I still have very little armpit hair and no chest hair.
Thanks guys, and I'll post up the test results I have soon.
