Hello guys. This is my first post ever and this is an urgent matter regarding my sexual health.
I started this “no masturbation til I get laid” challenge back in mid September. It was not for 2 months til I ejaculated through sexual activities. I’ve been feeling strange ever since that encounter because I wasn’t as sexually excited as I shouldve been. I’ve been reading all over the Internet and a lot of people who have done this “no masturbation” challenge lost their sex drive as well the same way.
Now even when I watch sexually arousing materials I don’t even have an interest in it. Even if Ms.Universe stood in front of me I wouldnt be sexually excited. Im only 18, and before I started this challenge I would even consider with sleeping with some ugly chicks.
My sex drive was that high, now it is reduced to nothing. I rarely have the urge to masturbate now and I havent started regularly ejaculating til about 2 weeks ago again.
People’s have been suggesting that because I did that challenge, my dopamine level has been down regulated, raised my prolactin level, and messed up my testosterone and estrogen balance. I got a hormonal blood test done 2 weeks ago but it wasnt the whole hormonal profile, here it is.
Testosterone = 32.8
Range : 8.4-28.8 nmol/L
Free testosterone = 936
Range : 170-630 pmol/L
Bioavailable testosterone = 21.9
Range : 4.7-15.0 nmol/L
Estradiol = 165*
Range : <150 pmol/L
I know the ranges differ for every test lab, but does my hormonal profile look a little bit out of whack here? Please advice!
