I am 23 years old guy who lifts constantly since 6 years. (used to compete in powerlifting, stopped because of University). I train 4 times a week, my diet is clean(Eggs,rice, potato,chicken, red meat, veggies, daily orange, cheese) (Basically following a slightly modified Vertical diet.
Last year i was having some Sexual Dysfunction, my “general” doctor prescribed me Testosterone gel, which i suspected because he only checked my blood test, so i had an appointment with an Endocrinologist and he told me not do so at any cost.
So i decided to drop weight as i was around 22% body fat, I’m 5’8, was around 215 lbs, now i’m around 180 ( took me 14 months) my situation got better but not by much.
Maintaining an erection mid sex is a challenge and sometimes i just stop sex, i gain fast very hard, and lately it has been really hard for me to put on muscles and strength. (I squatted 475lbs, benched 305, deadlifted 525, when i was 18 years old in my first powerlifting meet) Since then everything i made 0 improvement.
Now i want to fix my situation for once and for all. My mood is most of the time crappy, low energy and my erectile dysfunction is easily noticeable which pisses me off a lot.
I get 7-8 hours of sleep every night.
Supplements i take are Vitamin d3, Cod liver oil and Creatine. nothing fancy here just the essentials.
I’m going to book an appointment with another Endocrinologist, but i want opinion from you guys here as well before i go just to have an idea what i should be discussing with him.
Since i am 23 years old and most likely he will refuse the idea of TRT totally.
As i said before, i train since years, following strict training programs, my diet is good, everything in my life is going good no extreme stress or so, I am doing my degree and training, no work or anything to make me really stressed. I can’t see any issue for this.
But waking up without a morning wood and having low energy, losing erection mid sex and in a “down mood” for most of the day isn’t something usual for a healthy 23 years old.
The photo here is from a blood test i did last week on the 7th of January.
Any help is much appreciated
