-how have morning wood and nocturnal erections changed
Last time i had morning wood i was a teenager. Lost them around 18 and returned now with TRT but disappeared again
My story begins when i was around 18 years old. I suffered a fractured spine from an accident before i joined the army. It was an L1 spinal fracture. They sat me in hospital for 15 days lying down. Did several x rays and finally let me go telling me that i will heal fine and no neurological nerves were affected.
After a few months i returned to the military and thats when i first started to notice ED issues. Had no idea what was causing it and thats when my long ass safari began. I visited different doctors in two different countries. I was keen in solving the problem or finding the cause asap.
I didnÃ?Â¢??t come from a rich family and my dad has psychozephrenia for the past 30+ plus years so i pretty much saved money from working from a young age and also did some bank loans. I visited orthopaedics, urologists, endocrinologists, neurologists, naturopaths, and diebitologist. I did several MRIs. Brain scan twice, full spinal MRI, CT angiogram)
When i first began my journey to DRs i thought i had solved the problem quite at the beginning. I was diagnosed with high prolactin (29ng/ml range 4-15). So the doctor was like yea dude here is some dostinex and soon you will be fine. I was like fuck yea i am lucky and run home to start dostinex and see when i start having normal erections. Throughout my 8 year journey i only had 2 relationships with hot chicks. Wasnt cheating/drinking just trying to have normal sex without using cialis, Viagra and other supplements ALL the time (spent a fortune).
Anw ill try not to bore you guys to death. I took dostinex for a period of a few months and my prolactin went down and stayed down and all MRIs showed clean. My prolactin now basically stays in the upper range of normal and has been stable the past years without any medicine. Is it okay though in the upper normal range?
BUT nothing changed with my ED issues so i continued my journey. Was difficult though because i was a student in another country and could not save any more cash. Was studying with loan money.
About 3 years ago i started reading my blood tests and starting doing some research hoping to find the problem. All drÃ?Â¢??s were telling me my T levels are fine and very good but according to my research they werenÃ?Â¢??t. My t levels were the same as a 50-60 year old.
About 3-4 months ago i had enough. I tried all diets, supplements, sleep, reducing bodyfat (im13-15 max always), limiting xenoestrogens, reading books on how to increase t naturally but still nothing was working. I always had to plan sex time or look far into the day to guess when it will happen and take my supplement in time!
After i finished my studies and came back home and got a stable job and apartment with my partner i started visiting more drÃ?Â¢??s since now i had an income coming in. I also told my partner what was going on and we both decided (after i did some research at john crilsers site and reading testostearone a mans guide second edition) that i should start self administering T.
I have excellent, real and constant sources of high quality Test Enanthate. No Dr was willing to help and just told me to visit a psychologist. That just pissed the fuck out of me. I started to have fatigue, mood swings, muscle weakness and ED. I definitely wanted to solve these issues to continue with life prepared and strong mentally and physically.
I did before and during blood tests which you can see above. One huge mistake i did was that i did not test estradiol exactly before treatment. I bought test enanthate, letrozole, arimidex, hcg and bacteriostatic water.
I started injecting 55mg Monday and Thursday about 2.5 months ago. First weeks i started to feel MUCH MUCH better. I felt like a man again, fatigue was going away, libido coming back , no moodiness and most importantly MORNING
WOOD again! My erections were getting much much better.
Then something happened. Erections disappeared and go some anxiety moodiness. I did blood tests and saw estradiol going over range at 53 and total t 700.
So i bought letrozole (because my source said i would have to wait 3 weeks for arimidex). I took letro 0.625 x 3 week and my E2 went to 8. Then i took 0.625 twice weekly and it went 15. I couldt dose it any less and since i started it i noticed my libido dissapearaed and did not feel very well. So i exchanged it with arimidex waited until my e2 went to 40 and stared arimidex 0.5 twice weekly on injection days about 9 days ago.
In a few or two i will do further blood tests to see how im doing with arimidex and adjust dose.
My concerns i have are:
What do you guys see? See any important issue? How do you read my situation.
Should i start HCG now or should i wait until i dial in arimidex first?
Will/should my erections return like the beginning of trt. Im guessing they are up and down because of Estrogen control.
What should my next steps be?
Judging now i have realised that i might have jumped into TRT a bit ignorantly because i should have noticed my high E2 levels about 2-3 years ago and maybe an AI on its own would have worked.
I definitely want to live my life the fullest. My life is just beginning and i have many responsibilities that require my full attention and devotion. I did not feel comfortable and able to continue my life without doing something since this issue has been buzzing in my head day and night for the past 8 years. Only now i feel i am seeing some solid results and have the necessary drive to live life to the max!
Any input would be amazing and deeply appreciated. Thank you for your time brothers.
