I am 51, 6’-0, 180lb, athletic / semi muscular build. Sleep is now descent and live on a relatively healthy diet. Wine almost nightly and I do drink on the weekends at night… no drug use or addictions. Finastride 10 years prior. I also exercise 5 days a week and are very active.
Current protocol is 160 Test Cyp weekly split in two injections, and 15mg DHEA no Ai
After being on the above protocol for 8 months libido was maybe a 6/10 with swings a point up or down. I added HCG (800 per week in two doses) right before my divorce in October and now with a new GF my libido has largely disappeared. I know a lot of my libido may is psychological, but that does not help my frustration. Cialis and Viagra barely help. also sensitivity is the other issue, if I manage to get things doing, I find myself tapping out after running out of steam…
I stopped the HCG about 5~6 weeks ago and have seen marginal improvement, which may have more to do with me becoming more comfortable with my new GF (again psychological). Seeing her get frustrated is the other mind - f , I am dealing with.
I never did blood tests while on HCG, but I did get occasional outbreaks of acne on my shoulders, and other than that did not feel much of anything positive or negative.
I was on pellets years prior and did better in the high range of free t.
I am super frustrated because I am not having al the fun in the dick department that I should be having.!!
Be patient and wait another couple weeks?
Increase my T to 180/ @ 2shots wk?
lower my dose to 140/ @ 2 shots wk?
Try weekly injections?
Try EOD Injections?
Try HCG again?
Try a little AI?
Go to a shrink?
Put my dick into retirement?
I know there is going to be a ton of opinions, but if someone has been through this scenario before, you know how troubling this is , so please chime in, if you found your fix.
p.s. morning erections are pretty good, but if she rides the pony too long and I don’t go, i loose the erection and go to work pissed off at myself!
