I have posted this post in 2 other forums but I didn’t get much help and I am desperate.
Hello to everyone. I hope someone will read it and help. I appreaciate any help.
I am 24 old male. I am suffering from hypogonadism for very long time. I will provide latest labs but at first I want to tell you about my past.
I remeber going into puberty at age 13 or 14. I had normal erections, morning woods and wet dreams. My libido was good I was intrested in girls. After some time I noticed decerased sex drive at age maybe 15. At 16 it was completly gone I thought it is becouse I masturbated a lot(2 times a day) Then I remember that I wanted to get my drive back and try with girls. So I stopped masturbation. I could do without a masturbation for like half a year and my drive didnt came back at all. Then I masturbated once a month. At the age of 18 I finnaly decided to go to the doctor becouse I had almost no facial hair and after like half hour after masturbation I felt somthing like pelvic floor tension. The doctor has check my prostate and said that everything is ok. And he wanted me to get out. Then I compained about my very very low sex drive. He ordered a labs. The labs came with t levels below normal range I believe it was like 2.100 ng/ml. He examined my balls and said “yeah they are small thats why”. It actually pissed me off he was a douche. Then I continued my battle visiting some doctors. One of them prescribed proviron which raised my total t levels to 3,100 ng/ml. I felt no diffrence and went to another doctor he prescribed pills which was called undrestol. Still no diffrence.
Then I finally got a better doctor who did some testings. When I first came to him my hormone panel looked like this:
testosterone 2.320 ng/ml (2.490-8.360)
LH 4.22 IU/I (0-12,4)
FSH 16.32 IU/I (1.7-8.6)
prolactin 197 mlU/l (155,0-324,0)
He ordered new labs which came out strange.
Testosterone 3.980 ng/ml (2.490-8.360)
LH 8.76 IU/I (0-12,4)
FSH 28.18 IU/I (1.7-8.6)
prolactin 170 mlU/l (155,0-324,0)
DHEA-s 229.40 (70.2-492.0)
He ordered to do testicles usg. My testicles are small they are 3.4cm x 1,5cm. He prescribed t omadren 250mg every 2 weeks and he said that this is primary hypogonadism. He did check SHBG which was 23.6 (13.5-71.40). Thyroid levels were within the range.
There is still 2011 and my t levels are 8,550 after some t injections. And still nothing I dont feel drive at all. My lh and fsh drop to 0.I had MRI which indicated I had 2 micro benigin tumor in my pituitary gland which was realising prolactin. I also had kariotype test done and they said i am 100% man. I was taking testosterone less frequently becouse my doctor said that we will be dropping testosterone and maybe my body will kick in and produce it naturally. We then switch to testosterone entantan. We did the tests after 3 weeks after my last t dosage and t levels were varing form 2.7 ng/ml to 3.7 ng/ml.
There is 2013. I said I am done with trt and i started lifting weights and diet. I was desperate. The t injections did nothing to my sex drive which still was 0. I was for like 3 months without testosterone shots and the labs were:
Testosterone 3.860 ng/ml (2.490-8.360)
LH 5.99 IU/I (0-12,4)
FSH 16.25 IU/I (1.7-8.6)
prolactin 213 mlU/l (155,0-324,0)
TSH 1.01 (0.30-4.00)
My endo was suprised. He said that I only need to watch for my prolactin levels. And prescribed bromocryptine which stops prolactin
2014/04 My levels t levels drop to 2,760 ng/ml (still no drive)
2014/09 My t levels increased to 4,970 ng/ml
2015/05 t levels 5,280 ng/ml
And my latest labs:
Testosterone 5.570 ng/ml (2.490-8.360)
LH 7.44 IU/I (0-12,4)
FSH 11.11 IU/I (1.7-8.6)
prolactin 120 mlU/l (155,0-324,0)
Still no sex drive. Sometimes I do get morning wood but it is weak. I am also suffering from insomnia. I remember I had 1 day in may, when I woke up with a morning wood and alot of energy and I was attracted to female parts like butts… But it was all gone after 3 hours…
I think my puberty proces stopped and this is fked up. I look young altrough I am 24 years I look like a 18. Sometimes they ask me for id. I have pubic hair and arm pit hair but my facial hair looks awkward. I have testicles with volmue of 8ml. My penis is 5 inches but it is thin. According to tanner scale I am at the second stadium… of puberty
If you read what I have written I have questions:
1.What should I do to get my drive back? I have no sex drive since 16.
2.Can it be possible that my puberty procces stopped ? Maybe it will eventually come back?
3. Should I do more labs? If so, what labs?
