Whats up guys,
Been dealing with ED & Low libido for about 2 1/2 years and i havent found a cause. I’ve moments of temporary relief but nothing that has been consistent.
I went down to CT last Monday to visit Thomas O’Connor of testosteroneology. He’s a very nice guy and on top of that really seems to know his stuff. I sent and came with additional blood work from the last 18 months. After getting to know each other a bit we delved into my blood work and my worse case scenario occured: nothing was conclusive.
I immediately was dejected and the feeling of being despondent poured out of me. He then proceeded to talk about my symptoms being in my head and due to depression. That I’m in a feedback loop of being depressed about my ed and my ed causing my depression.
I drove home after the appt and thought about the possibility of having psychological ED. However after doing some research and delving deep into my gut, i know for a fact its not in my head.
During the appt he did mention the possibility of it being neurotransmitter related and talked about how important dopamine is to the HPTA axis and for our overall health in general. That lead me to doing research on dopamine deficiency and i have plenty of the symptoms outlined. It would also explain, for example, why i would restart trt and id get that honeymoon phase only for me to return back to my baseline. I’ve also used mdma on and off for a good 6-7 months during my edm excursions during my very early 20s. I think its very possible I’ve messed or altered something with my dopamine receptors.
With all that being said. I’m on trt and I’m going to simplify things by dropping the hcg and aromasin for a couple of weeks and seeing how that works. However i don’t think that’ll change much.
I’m looking into Wellbutrin. It’s known to increase libido more often than not but i also know that everyones body is different and i may or may not find my answer in this drug. I’ll ask for a prescription and take it from there.
I’m also aware of apomorphine and its ability to help with ED, unfortunately the ED drug Uprima is only available in Europe.
Lets cut to the chase. Firstly does anybody have experience with Wellbutrin with or without trt and how it interacted?
Does anybody know how i can get my hands on uprima or apomorphine?
Is there anything i can do/take to help my dopamine receptors? Is there a long term cures?
The LAST thing i want to take is cabergoline and other prolactin reducing dopamine agonist. The risk of DAWS is too great of a risk in my opinion and would only be my failsafe option.
Thanks in advance for the assistance!
