I am 30 and in this midst of marital problems and actively looking for help to fix my low energy, libido and ED issues. Been a problem for 3 yrs (ED - sporadic) and 5 yrs + for general lower sex drive. I had some blood work done last year and was given the "normal range" bullshit. I am currently working with a doctor friend to find a new PCP to work WITH me in getting to the bottom of everything with new lab work and a team plan of action.

I have been monitoring my body temps for the last 5 days with an average waking temperature of 97.1 and an average mid day temp of 97.9. I haven't started taking any supplements to try and address any of this yet.
Any input on a current course of action would be GREATLY appreciated. Iodine supplements starting before or after blood work? ED med's? I've been on the 25mg viagra before with minimal success for the ED. Getting desperate here...my wife is becoming convinced that I'm just not in to her and that's why the problems. Love her to death and just want to go back to feeling like my self again.
