When I had normal testosterone I had an insane libido, hypersexuality and couldn’t understand why women at 21 didn’t feel the same, I thought something was wrong with all of the woman I was dating. The truth is men typically are always thinking about sex and women not as much. It sounds like you have low libido, some men are just asexual and not really interested in sex at all.
Many things affect libido, testosterone and estrogen are just two, if you testosterone and estrogen are out of balance, libido will be affected negatively because excess estrogen affects mood and mood affects libido.
Sufficient thyroid hormones are needed and give energy to cells, so if your thyroid is messed up then this could be why libido is low. Low iron is another mineral that is needed, ferritin and cortisol. Nitric oxide is important for erectile strength, so you can have libido and not be able to act on it, testosterone is what makes a man a man, strong, unapologetic and confident.
Often times doctors skimp of needed testing, HMO’s are useless for hormonal treatments, doctors are always doing things half ass. I haven’t found a single man that said he felt his best at an E2 of 22, biological individuality will dictate where you feel your best, frankly I feel better when E2 is higher closer to 30, I seem be be over the moon happy above 30.
If it gets any higher it can start to cause minor problems, just see me weep during a sad movie.
Do not apologize, this is a excellent question!
