Porn Reboot with Low testosterone but high libido?
« on: April 04, 2013, 08:16:28 pm »
I have low testosterone (300ish) but I'm constantly horny.  How is that possible? I am having erection issues and have been doing this rebooting thing for a long time.  It wasn't until the last couple of months that I have consistent libido though.

That tough to answer, but a comment is that lots of guys are completely symptomless in the 300's.  Some guys, like myself, were miserable in the 300's and still others do just fine.  So it's really hard to answer that, especially without knowing where you were in the past.

Now I do have a comment:  I think it's a mistake to not get any erections for an extended period of time.  The penis needs oxygenation and so if you are not getting morning erections, then you may find this leads to venous leakage:

Also, keep in mind that libido is only one of the Big Three symptoms that are best predictive of low testosterone:

The other two are morning erections and erectile dysfunction.  Of course, you wouldn't know about the latter I assume due to the reboot.  But if you are not getting morning erections, then this is a sign that your testosterone may to be an issue.  Discuss with a physicisn.

Other common symptoms are depression, anxiety, "mental fog", etc.

Sorry to write so much, but there are so many issues here:

--You really need to get tested for osteopenia, anemia and estradiol with testosterone that low as well.  These are very serious conditions obviously and your testosterone can lead to that.

One of my concerns with the reboot movement is that they do not emphasize enough getting a endocrine and physical workup.  I'll bet that a substantial percentage of men who feel they need to reboot actually endothelial or endocrinological issues and are making things much worse by ignoring them during a multimonth reboot process.  Again, I think it's great to get off of any addiction, but you need to address underlying medical conditions. 

So bottom line:  it's good working with a doc and hopefully he/she is a good one...

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

A good reboot is orgasm free, let your brain have a break.. However if your still having ed issues, then it may not of been from the porn

are you depressed? stressed? overweight? thyroid labs? estrogen? prolactin?

I read on other post that your getting nighttime/morning erections, perhaps this is a purely psychological issue?

Yah I'm getting morning erections almost every morning.  I thought it might be psychological also so I've been goign to therapy.  I used to have a lot of anxiety after failing a lot but I have been pretty calm when having sex now. 

I've been slightly depressed but not a lot of stress. The depression mainly comes from my ed issues. I'm going through my previous lab results and will post my prolactin and estrogen level.

Well, morning erections are a combination of nitric oxide and testosterone, so it's a good sign there.  But I think - and I can't really directly prove this with a study - that testosterone plays a major role in waking erections through the increase of neurotransmitters and libido.  A guy who is low testosterone often describes life as "passionless".  You feel like a walking zombie.

Now, how are you going to get excited about anything sexual, when you feel like this?  It's difficult and I think this may explain why some guys can get morning erections still but not do well during the day.  Just a theory though...

He says he has high libido, but only masturbated 3 times this year... A real high libido would FORCE you to masturbate more times than that?

It might seem high to you, but maybe with your Low T your not used to a real high libido? Just a thought

That's definitely true. My libido is certainly not as high as it was during college.  However, even when my testosterone was in at 535 in 2007, I wasn't feeling high libido. 

I'm interested in the NO levels.  If I get morning erections and can get erections through stimulation, does that imply that my NO levels are sufficient? I'm going to order the NO test strips to see where I'm at.

I have had that issue...where I am just not turned on, then I get turned on(I get more turned on by talking/connecting than I do a lap dance, etc)
 then Im ok

I get baffled by this, I thought guys were supposed to eat/sleep/fuck and thinking or "conversations"  ie foreplay, is a female thing

Ive been this way a few years now, where I've needed the mental stimulation first, then I dont have issues with erocktions.
This has been a problem with the younger females I desire because they don't:
-want to talk.
-have anything worth listening to
-dont want to do any *work*, they literally want me to just do all the work(sexually) which means I don't receive any foreplay, unless I talk to myself before I "rape" them(can't rape the willing, but that's pretty much it)
