connection between libido and ED
« on: October 08, 2013, 10:56:11 pm »
Hello,

Can a person have low libido and not have ED? I have both low libido and ED. I am physically okay (had a lot of tests for venous leaks and don't have it) and get nocturnal erections easily.  However, I have trouble maintaining erections.  I see four possible scenarios:

(1) High Libido and no ED => you're a normal guy
(2) High libido with ED => you might have physical problems but nothing hormonally wrong with you.
(3) Low libido with ED => Physical, testosterone or other problems.
(4) Low libido with no ED => Does that happen???

thanks

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.

Yeah, still on clomid but switching to HCG tomorrow when my prescription gets here. My last blood panel showed testosterone at ~900 and estrodial at 41. So basically my estrogen is very high.

Gotcha.  Well, I was wondering as you just sounded like a Clomid guy.  Feel for ya'...

And, also, I'm not sure what causes that.

(4) Low libido with no ED => Does that happen???

thanks

It takes libido to be erect, in a manner of speaking, except for when you're sleeping. 

I was suffering a depressive state for a couple of years.   I did wake during the night "up", but it never happened awake.   Or, if it did, it went away pronto.    And, I turned to the "porn" thing for a while just to have SOME kind of hope.    It's pretty self defeating, though. 

Got ride of the medication that had the side effect of depression, and things have been slowly getting better ever since. 

born '63, 140 lbs overweight, diabetic, DISH, stubborn hypertension, and a lot discouraged.

Metoprolol.   A beta blocker.
