Influence of Sexual Abstinence on Bloodwork?

Hi there!

I wanted to get my bloodwork done in the near future. However, I am on NoFap momentarily. Will abstaining from sex (and mostly even sexual fantasy) bias my testosterone levels? And if so, will it likely result in higher or lower levels?

In case this could be too much of a bias, I would opt for waiting to get it done.

Best,
K

No, testosterone will be the same whether or not you abstain from having sex. It will however increase prolactin within 24 hours of testing, cuddling with puppies will do the same.

yes. there is a spike on T lvls after 5~7 days on no fap, sex … (no ejaculation) ,after that recycling process tend to go back at normal lvls.
