Hi all, I am a 35 yr old guy with a history of Erectile dysfunction and hormonal issues that went untreated because the doctors said the tests were in range. I can’t live my life like this. So KSman and other knowledgeable folks, please help me.
During puberty I had very severe gynocomastia that was operated on twice. Also from around that time I suffer from Idiopathic Cholinergic Urticaria. I had difficulty in passing urine at one go and very weak erections. The doctors said that secondary and tertiary sexual characteristics were normal so no need to run any tests.
They said I was normal and unfortunately I believed them. I have facial hair that grow very very slowly.One shave can get me through a week.No hair on chest and back. Thin hair on forearms, underarms and legs. As for the hair on my head, they are lifeless and dull and thin.Then I went abroad to work and my weight went from 209 lbs to 165 lbs. I am 6’ tall.
I worked a moderately heavy job and I would be sore everyday. My erections were very soft and ejaculation was almost non existent. Then I started on tribulus and passion flower extract along with some saw palmetto and that made my life slightly bearable. It didnt make a huge difference but urination became easier.
I didnt have a social life, I just worked.Then I went to consult a doctor to see if I need HRT and he just looked at me and said no. I decided to run a test for E2 anyways and that came back over the limit by a lot.
Then I moved to the States and to make a long story short tried to consult a few doctors about this but to no avail. Here are some labs that I ran last year.
Test, Serum- 266 ng/dL 249-836
Test, Free- 11.1 pg/mL 8.7-27.1
DHEA Sulfate- 212.3 ug/dL 88.9-427.0
Estradiol- 36.6 pg/mL 7.6-42.6
TSH- 1.210 uIU/mL 0.450-4.500
Thyroxine(T$)- 6.1 ug/dL 4.5- 12.0
T3 Uptake- 32 % 24-39
Free Thyroxine index- 2.0 1.2-4.9
I had to move again to Asia and as soon as I could I went on Aromasin. These were my lab results after 2.5 to 3 months on Aromasin.
Test, Free- 40.1 Pg/ml 4.5- 42
Test, Serum- 718 ng/dL 166-877
Estradiol - 16.58 pg/ml < 62 pg/ml
Serum Prolactin- 6.54 ng/ml 2.64-13.13
DHT- >2500 pg/ml 250-990 pg/ml
Then I consulted an endo and he asked me to run some labs after I was off Aromasin for 45 days.Here are the results.These are the latest lab tests that I have had.
Serum Prolactin- 13.40 ng/mL 2.10- 17.70
Test, Free- 8.09 pg/mL 3.84- 34.17
Test, Total- 363.70 ng/dL 241.0-827.00
Estradiol(E2)- 25.29 pg/mL 10-50
FSH- 1.83 mIU/mL 1.40-18.10
LH- 3.39 mIU/mL 1.50-9.30
T3 Free- 3.13 pg/mL 1.71-3.71
T4 Free- 0.93 ng/dL 0.70-1.48
TSH,Ultrasensitive- 1.420 uIU/mL 0.350-4.940
Went back to see him and the endo tells me to go see a shrink as my problem was mental.According to him all my results were in range and everything was fine and dandy.
After reading the forums here I started on 500 units of HCG every other day along with 1/4 Aromasin tablet. Then yesterday I took 500mg vit B6 and that gave me a little morning wood. Then I went and got me some Cabergoline and I was planning on taking it every 3 days(1/4 tablet). But while writing this I just noticed that my prolactin results were near the high end so maybe I will dose more.
Thank you for reading this. Please give me your thoughts and suggestions as to how can I get a life worth living.
