Hey guys, I’m 30yo and my sex drive has been almost nonexistent for longer than I care to admit. Here are the results of my bloodwork:
-Total Test 390 (Normal 260-1000)
-% Free Test 1.5 (Normal 1.0-2.7)
-Free Test 57.6 (Normal 50.0-210.0)
-Androstenedione 35 (Normal 50-220)
FSH, LH, IGF-1, HGH were all normal. My endo wants to send me to a urologist to see what’s going on. I was positive that my test was going to turn below normal levels; I have done two cycles in the past and they made me horny as hell so I figured the test was the ticket but I guess I was wrong.
What do you guys suggest? Have you been in a similar situation than mine? I wonder what answers the urologist can come up with.
While 390 is clinically “normal.” it may not be normal for you.
That’s the trouble with testing for T.
If we had any brains, we’d all get a baseline done at about 25 and refer to that in subsequent years.
There are endos or GPs out there (although probably few and far between) who’d give you a prescription for some Testosterone.
I’d recommend trying Alpha Male for four weeks. If libido goes up, you know that your lack of libido was probably related to lower than optimal Testosteorne levels.
If it works, you can either continue on it, or seek out pharmaceutical T replacement.
However, having said all that, it is a little odd that it’s so low. Any stress in your life? Do you train balls to the wall all the time? Soy in your diet? Alcohol?
Are you getting nocturnal erections? You could try the old stamp trick. Glue a string of postage stamps around your member before you go to bed.
If the perforations are busted in the morning, you know that you achieved nocturnal wood, which, while certainly not definitive, gives some indication of whether you’re experiencing a pulsatile release of T in the morning.
