I am in my mid 20s.
I have had very low libido and problems with ED since I have been 14/15 and as far back as I can remember. Now that I have experienced use of AAS and AIs, I believe that at the very least it is tied to e2 level.
I have currently been on letro consistently for about 4 weeks at .25mg/day for 1.75mg/week. I've seen Bill Roberts say that when he is off, he uses 2.5 mg/week divided in .36mg/day increments. I have had an extremely hard time finding my sweet spot. However, quite randomly it seems, I have had a day or two where I have had normal libido and I was able to have sex before losing my erection. I think that perhaps the problem might be tied in with prolactin as well, but that's obviously impossible to know without blood work.
Perhaps this is TMI, but there is no really other way to explain it.For about 2-4 days or so every 4-6 weeks (my whole life, no AI/AAS), I will experience a period of fairly high libido and my scrotum hanging ok, while my penis is not shriveled up. However, the rest of the time my scrotum is very tight and penis is very limp and very shriveled as if you are standing in a cooler naked. Due to the fact that I have managed to regain libido for a day or two while on AI, I assume that this is me "passing through the sweet spot", and therefore e2 is at the very least one of the issues (hopefully the only issue).
I thought that I could figure out the dosage necessary of AI just by monitoring symptoms, but I have not been able to do that when I was on AAS in the past or when I have been off and trying to use AI by itself.
My total testosterone when last checked as >900. So I assume that my testes are functioning fine.
It has been an extremely frustrating problem to deal with no libido/ED for this long and has basically eliminated any sort of relationship I can have with women. At this point, I simply just want to find the solution. The whole thing doesn't really make sense to me as I live pretty healthy compared to some people I know who drink/smoke/use drugs and eat like complete shit, yet seem to be fine sexually/have girlfriends.
I will have weeks where I have a nice pump and look "full" and other weeks where I am flat and don't look very good. Libido between these two "states" has been fairly random. The way that I look has led me to believe that the issue is tied to e2 and its fluctuation.
So my question really is:
I have come off completely from letro. How long should I stay off before I go and get bloodwork? I was planning on 2-3 weeks at the moment but I am not sure when the letro will be fully cleared.
Has anyone dealt with chronic libido problems and solved them?
