Need to Tell TRT Doc About Viagra Use?

Hi Guys

I’ve been on TRT FOR 2 years now Nebido 4ml 1000mg every 8 weeks

7 weeks (week before next injection my total test stood at 14.5) don’t have free test results by hand.

Dr is happy with my bloods.

The past 6 months I’ve been heavily relying on Viagra when it comes to sex. I can maybe have sex once without using it but struggle to stay hard in all honesty.

Is this something i should discuss with my Dr, i have mentioned it to my Nurse who administrates (injects) The TRT but only adviced to see Dr if i really feel the need.

I’m 27 years old (109kg) mixture of Weight training and Mild Cardio. 5.11

Reason for this post is to hear others and to see if this is common and how i can tackle.

Hesitating to notify Dr as they might make the rash decision and stop my TRT.

Many Thanks

I’m assuming you’ve been diagnosed with secondary hypogonadism, so stopping your TRT because of asking a question or showing concern that your TRT protocol isn’t ideal for you would be a reckless disregard for your health and I don’t see that happening.

There is no mention of Free T levels, a 14.5 nmol/L Total T might be too low a trough level to have sufficient Free T levels if your SHBG is above midrange. Also Nebido is the worst version of TRT and is less effective in the majority of men and might be the problem.

You need to be more assertive, if you doc isn’t willing to optimize you to where you don’t have any symptoms, dump your doc and search for another one.

Any additcion? Weed, alcohol, porn? If yes, how often?

No other addictions. High caffine on certain days 250 mg on some days. And porn… Well haha maybe three times a week, in a healthy relationship at the moment so not getting high urges to watch Porn!

Thanks for your reply. I know Nebido isn’t the best when it comes to TRT but compared to what i use to be Pre TRT my life has improved massively!

I should be more honest with Dr about Viagra , but some Drs make hasty decions and might throw my treatment out the window. My apologies on not uploading full bloods was abit of a late night last minute post.

P.s from The UK if that helps paint a picture.

You might suggest injections every 6-7 weeks instead of every 8 weeks on your next visit, maybe that will resolve your issues.

So you have your answer, TRT won’t do anything for you, you’ve seen it the past 2 years on TRT
