What To Do If Libido and Erections Occur At Different Estrogen Levels?

For some, libido and erections occur at the same level of estrogen.

But for some, libido occurs with a higher estrogen and erections at a lower level.

What do we do in this case?

Or is it the free t affecting libido??

Could be. Who knows.

Just wish i could find some semblance of libido.

I have no libido ever either. Morning erections sometimes but I lose them and literally no sexual desire or drive at all.

Yeah it’s awful

Gorgeous gf. Very attracted to her. But zero push for sex. That “in heat” feeling isnt there.

Sounds like me exactly. I don’t know what else to do, just made a post about it. Suspected possible low progesterone. But it’s making me want to quit completely, although I’ve been on so long a recovery is probably unlikely even though I’m in my 30s

I too thought low prog, so I have been taking pregnenolone.

Any success so far? I experimented with it a while back but the rest of my protocol was suboptimal.

Have you gotten 8 week full labs from both scenarios to compare and contrast?

I would pick the dose with higher libido and start working on solutions around it, who knows, maybe It could stabilize on it’s own in several months maybe.

For me in the heat of the moment i can feel horny, but that drive to pursue women and that energy that you draws you to the interaction isn’t there.

I just started HGH 4 days ago and will ride this out for 6 plus months, provided i can keep my insulin and blood sugar in check. Hoping to get some long lasting healing effects, definitely will report back if something noteworthy takes place in several months.

So it’s been a few years of trying different protocols without much success for libido.

I looked over my years of bloods and went back to a protocol that had my best T:E2 ratio on it. It was at 30mg EOD. Bloods were as follows:

TT 741 (250-1100)
FT 193 (35-155)
E2 49 (<29)
SHBG 19

My T:E2 ratio was 15.1. So it was decent.

Was thinking THIS time around i’d throw in .25mg of arimidex EOD along with my shot. I don’t have bloods yet.

My idea was that my FT was good, but that my E2 was too high, and due to my lower SHBG, it canceled out libido. Too much FE2

Well, it’s been a few weeks on this protocol, and my libido is definitely more pronounced. So i’m thinking with the .25 ai EOD, my E2 lowered a bit, making my ratio increase a bit.

Now it’s not crazy over the top libido… but i’ve gone from ZERO to something, so i’m on the right track.

I think some guys just don’t aromatize in the most advantageous way and they need more control of their E2.

Just thought i’d post. I’ll see where i am in a few more weeks, then tweak a bit and see if i can increase libido more. Maybe raise dose to 40mg EOD and leave ai alone at .25 EOD.

Yes, high e2 can totally fuck up ur libido for many, myself included.

Try NPP, it did wonders for my libido as a low shbg guy. And dont listen to the people who told you not to ever use AI, they obviously have no idea what they are talking about, just as I said many months ago.
