Need some help from the experienced posters…
I’ve been using steroids since May of 2012, never had any problems until this March 2013 when I first tried Deca. ran about 400mg’s with a hefty 750mg dose of testosterone, but despite this about 4 weeks into the cycle I started losing my erection during sex with the girlfriend.
I quickly dropped deca from my stack but it was already too late. Soon my sex drive completely disappeared and when I did manage to get it up, I suffered from extreme ED. From April to August, I tried anything I could get my hands to try to self-medicate… Prami, Caber, Adex, Cialis, Viagra, more test, less test, Masteron, Proviron, Vitamin B6… basically anything I read online that might help w/ this problem. Nothing worked
In August I decided fuck it, I’m going to come off steroids to fix this thing. In November I finally got health insurance and saw a specialist. I explained the whole situation to my endo and he was quick to blame my sexual dysfunction on low test.
Indeed blood work showed 140 ng/dl (reference 350-1100) but I tried to reason with him that even when I was on high dose exogenous testosterone, my dick wouldn’t work. LH and FSH were in the dirt as well, but everything else was within range. Prolactin was at the top of the normal reference range, but my doctor did not seem concerned about this.
First round of bloods, my doctor didn’t test for Estradiol or progesterone, which I thought was strange. His reasoning was that having been off of hormones for 3+ months, there is no reason to suspect that these hormones would be elevated… Not sure if I’m buying this.
Anyway I’ve completed 2 months of clomid therapy, I can tell it’s definitely boosted my testosterone levels from the increase in testicular size as well as the fact that I have more strength in the gym, more energy in my daily life, and my mood seems to have stabilized (was depressed before)
But I still have no freaking sex drive at all and can’t get hard to save my life. On the few occasions I have tried to masturbate, I couldn’t keep an erection long enough to finish.
Can someone please give me some insight as to what the problem might be causing this? This is really ruining my life, I’m afraid to pursue a sexual relationship because I know I won’t be able to please the girl
And I have never had any sort of sexual dysfunction before Deca so I am 99% sure that this is what caused this all.
Thanks for reading guys, I look forward to seeing what you have to say
