I took lexapro an ssri for a while and it killed my libido before taking the ssri I was pumping and stretching with a lot of sucssess but not being able to get an erection has become a serious problem. I tried viagara but found out that only affects the blood plumbing of the dick not the sex drive in the brain caused either by the hypothalamus or endocrin system (ie pituitary glans) I thought that maybe the medication lowered my testosterone levels and I should try testosterone treatment but then I read here Anabolic Steroids: What Urologists Should Know
That testosterone treatment can actually reduce libido.
But here Libido drugs - Impotence Treatments | Low Testosterone
They say “DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) DHT is the metabolite of testosterone that is responsible for virility and “all things male”; from a deeper voice, to beard growth, to of course libido.
Increasing DHT through either testosterone replacement, DHT cream, or Proviron will directly increase libido since it is the primary messanger to the brain to do so.”
There are also links that suggest that dht cream applied on the penis will promote genitial growth
And proviron Proviron (mesterolone) - Info and Experiences
Which using Mesterolone reduces circulating estrogen levels by inhibiting the aromatase enzyme which converts testosterone to estrogen. (So it helps bodybuilders avoid the estrogen side effects produced by other anabolic steroids.)
However the first link which suggested that testostirone treatment actually lowers libido recommends this instead “This usually means using medications to “jump start” the pituitary gland’s production of LH.
This, in turn, will stimulate the production of testosterone in the testicles. Commonly used agents are clomiphene citrate (Clomid) and LH analogs such as human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), sometimes with synthetic FSH treatment. Aro-matase inhibitors also may be enlisted to combat low testosterone levels in infertile males.”
Since there is alot of uncertainty on this issue I decided to look up what the FDA could have concocted I refused to believe that with all our technology that fact we can clone and splice genes that we do not have the ability to stimulate the glands that make us horny. To my surprise and I say surprise there is such a product called bremelanotide however despite the fact it worked it was shot down by the FDA because less than 2% of the subjects experienced mild elevated blood pressure there are various (conspiracy) theories as to why the FDA would limit a drug like this
Which I am still going to find a way to get and I’m in need of some ideas.
I am at a loss what is true and what is not? I just want my libido back I’ve tried herbal supplements but theirs just a crock of shit. Can anybody help sort out the bullshit and how I might be able to purchase some bremelanotide thanks!
