Still Having Problems Even on TRT

I started TRT a little over a year ago at the age of 19. I went to the doctor because i was having problems with ED and it worried me at a young age. After a bunch of tests i was told i had low t (250) on a scale of 300-1100. I got sent to an endo and out on TRT. Im now 20 and just got my levels checked about a month back they were TT- 661 300-1100 and FT- 20.2 and this was on the day of my shot before my shot. I do .7cc test cyp once a week. after reading some other forums I’m gonna switch to twice a week. Even with my levels being where they are now i still suffer from ed and thats the only thing that hasn’t been fixed. i want to have sex i just can’t perform. I have had an mri on my pituitary and that came back good. So now I’m waiting to see what my doc is gonna say next. All my other tests came back normal id put them up but i dont have a copy on hand. My other symptoms were always being tired,trouble losing weight and had a hard time putting on muscle. If someone could give me some advice it would help and if you have any more questions please ask thanks.

  • above concern thyroid function, low thyroid function leads to low energy and weight gain, with many of the same effects as low-T, many here have both

You’ve just identified your cause of ED. You can get an erection no problem watching porn but not with real women. Younger men have deeper engrained mental plasticity. Many need to abstain for up to a year before regaining their function. Older men, counterintuitively can recover in as little as 1-3 months.

I agree with Hostile completely on this one. If you are able to get an erection in the morning and while masterbating then it appears you are physically well. Its as Hostile said or performance anxiety.

Young guys raised on porn. It is causing problems in some of them. A lot of them actually

That may not be your issue. But It would be good if it was. The cure is simple no more porn. How long it takes to work depends on how young you started
