Test Cycle Libido Issue


#1

I've been on TRT for years. I've never had an issue with libido during that time. I am now on a cycle. I am taking 600mg Primo and 750mg Test Cyp per week. About 3 weeks into the cycle I noticed that I wasn't able to ejaculate. My erections are just fine but I cannot finish. I've been given advice to cut back on my Anastrozole and then to add more Anastrozole in. I've tried both. I had lab work done after my 3rd week and everything was fine. My prolactin and estradiol were both normal and my test was at 3004.

There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to this. Sometimes I can finish and many other times I can't. Any ideas or advice? I am getting very depressed about it.

Your problem is too hard to diagnose without lab work. Taking that much test could create all sorts of reactions with your DHT, E etc. No way to help without a baseline and labs on cycle. You can only play with your AI to see what happens which is exactly what you are doing.
