    I got a blood test today I went to the doctors for a physical and told him about some of my problems. I told him about fatigue, muscle loss, joint pain, and then came up if I’m sexually active. I told him that I had trouble getting an erection and libido problems. He was suprised about how much I knew about the different hormones. So he orded a test, I dont know exactly what he orded(havent gotten results back yet) but I know when I was drawing blood, they used 8 freakin tubes…LOL, I hate blood. Anyway, I’ll report back to this thread with results.

    There is another way that you can stop porn addiction, chronic masturbation and recover your sexual health without fighting it with willpower. With the right mindset you won't even relapse. You can learn more about the recovery program here

    You have libido problems? I thought you have high libido since you mention you masturbate sometimes so much ( why would you masturbate if there is no libido at all ). Did you meant you have libido problems towards real women.

    You have libido problems? I thought you have high libido since you mention you masturbate sometimes so much ( why would you masturbate if there is no libido at all ). Did you meant you have libido problems towards real women.I only masturbate so much when I’m looking at porn…otherwise its nothing. But generally I mean no libido towards real women.

    finally raven, a breakthrough has come. now lets sit and wait while the results come up like.

    #13127

    Lynn

    lol…how long does the results usually take to come through? Also the fact that they had 8 freakin tubes of blood does that mean they are testing for 8 different things?

    #13128

    Jere

    it should take a couple of days.

    did u ask for a copy of the results from your doc or are you going to make another appointment with him?

    #13129

    Nolan

    This is a classic reply that clearly specifies the deadly nature of porn… I am exactly like Raven, when I look at porn I keep going going and going…

    That’s why its key to break the porn addiction

    Raven i just had a blood test on monday and she used about 6 tubes and i was getting a lot of hormones tested, if your doc knows anything about hormones he should have at least tested testosterone and thyroid, those are the basic tests, if hes good he would test E2, SHBH, lh,fsh, cortisol, dheas; lets hopes he good.

    you have to get a hard copy of your results from your doctor, should only take a few days.

    also raven, what time of day did you get test done?

    #13131

    Quincy

    Yeah I asked him if I could have a copy, he said he’ll be glad to make me a copy. So I’m guessing I’m going back in to see him. He said he might recommend going to a urologist or endrinologist. I’m guessing he means depending on the results.

    Max Yeah he did mention testosterone, estradiol, thryoid, but I hope he also checked off SHBG, LH, FSH, free test, and others. Did you tell him what to test or did he choose what to test? I mean you said you got alot of hormones tested and you got 6 tubes, I got 8 tubes so that should mean he tested pretty much everything right? Also did you get results yet?

    I was in the middle of the day(late afternoon, early evening). Because remember, I was going in for a physical and I told him about my problems and he decided a blood test was necessary. Should I have told him about the excessive masturbation?

    #13132

    Peter

    8 tubes is a lot.

    i didnt tell my doctor what i want tested, he did everything, but my doctor is also the grand-father of hormones.

    i should be getting my results today or tommorow.

    you probably wont know til next week, id call your docs office and ask, sometimes they call me and give results over the phone.

    but i knwo some docs are weird and its hard to get copys of the results, but most should be fine with this, just keep at the office asking.

    #13133

    Issac

    They have the results, ofcourse he says everything is normal. He told me I could come pick up the results or have them mailed to my house…I stupidly told him to mail them to me, not thinking on how long that will take. Err…I should have went to pick them up, how long do you guys think it will take if he mails it today or tomorrow?

    #13134

    Donnell

    you should have them wedneday – thursday

    #13135

    Burt

    we’ll see if there normal… my doc told me testostosterone levels of 360 were completely normal ROFL

    #13136

    Giuseppe

    if you really cant wait just go pick them up today, im sure they have copies of them they can do for you.

    #13137

    Johnie

    Max I know, thats exactly what I thinking and thats why I said if ofcourse they said they were normal. I really want to know what he tested tho. The only things I know he tested for sure was for testosterone, estradiol, and my thyriod, and if I had mono.

    Max I dont know, you say wednesday or thursday…I wont be here from thursday till sunday.

    #13138

    Hiram

    …but the idiot only tested for testosterone, estradiol, and thyroid.

    Estradiol: 24 pg/mL (ref range 0-56)

    Testosterone: 397 ng/dl

    -The ranges are only for ages 20-49 (ref range 262-1593), and >50 (181-758).

    -My test is 397!!! I’m only 17, so I dont fall under that age range, but its still low.

    THYTSH3: 1.690 mclUnit/mL (ref range 0.500-4.000)

    wow…how lame. So what am I supposed to take from this? No wonder when I took the horny goat weed with tribulus, I felt hornier and could get erections, because it boosted my testosterone.

    Should I go see a urologist or an endocrinologist?

    #13139

    Ira

    from what i been reading endos are bad at treating sex hormones.

    it depends how much your T levels are dropping during the day, you did say you tested around evening hours? that could be dropping a lot during the day, but still you T levels shouldnt drop below 500ng/dl

    Id probably guess and say your LH/FSH are probably low too

    it’d be nice to test DHEAS / Cortisol salvia along with some other test, maybe if you go see a new doc he’ll test it

    raven read over this link carefully

    if you got the money id go see dr. shippen

    Max Ok, I have four options right now, please help me with a decision. I could….

    -go along with the zinc/DIM regimine I’ve been planning and see how that works

    -Go see a urologist

    -Go see a endocrinologist(you say you recommend not to see one?)

    -Find another doctor(this will be difficult as I’m 17, I dont have my own insurrence, and I dont have thousands of dollars just laying around to spend.)

    #13141

    Otis

    hmm if i were you, id go to a doctor from that link i sent you, theres probably good ones in your area. im not sure self treating your with supplements is a wise decision its best to have good doc guide you

    your covered under your parents insurance..

    #13142

    Thanh

    Max Ok…but I just cant go see doctors and do whatever I want. I have to have my parents with me or their permission.

    #13143

    Miguel

    i donno then; my parents would be more than happy to take me to see any doc i wanted if i was sick.

    if your sick you need treatment. if not than get use to being the way you are.

    #13144

    Brice

    Max Both my parents work in the medical field and they dont see me as sick…I mean they dont know I have erection problems.

    #13145

    Walter

    Both my parents work in the medical field and they dont see me as sick…I mean they dont know I have erection problems.

    have you tried to tell them about the issues.

    #13146

    Gabriel

    Both my parents work in the medical field and they dont see me as sick…I mean they dont know I have erection problems.

    have you tried to tell them about the issues.My mother treats me like a child and thinks I know nothing about anything. I wont be suprised if she was suprised I knew what the penis was used for…I dont live with my father, and he is always busy. I cant sit down and talk to my parents, well my mother, in an adult fasion because she treats me like a child. I can go to either a urologist or an endocrinologist, which do you think would be more beneficial, or neither? Max said an endo wouldnt help…

    #13147

    Jerome

    maybe, you have togo to a doc that knows you have hormonal problems, theres a good chance most docs are going to say your testosterone levels are fine, you might go to an endo and they will like your hormones are fine.

    see there are some man who are high testosterone males and some men that are low testosterone males. but your having problems of low testosterone levels. if functionally very well sexually and had t levels of 400 id say your just a low testosterone male, but thats not that case.

    but the range is going up to 1550, i bet most if not all sexually healthy males from 18-25 years old have 800-1500 T levels.

    thank god i lucked out getting in with shippen, he doesnt even care about lab work, his main focus is on symptoms. most docs are only going to look at lab work that are in the ranges, thats why people who have hormonal problems have togo through several docs before finding a good one, its a long battle but it can be won.

    find a doc here

    [MOD EDIT: URL Removed]

    or if u want to see an endo, speak with them over the phone first to see if they can help you.

    #13148

    Emanuel

    So my best bet is to just keep looking for a doctor and skip the urologists and endocrinologists?

    #13149

    Vince

    yes find one in that link i sent you is your best option….

    #13150

    Rueben

    Ok…I cant see another doctor, but I can see either a urologist or an endo. Which would be better between the two?

    #13151

    Andres

    well shippen told me endos and urologist are usless for treating testosterone related problems because theres simply no training. he said docs just arent up to date or have the proper training for this type of stuff.

    #13152

    Young

    Max This is crazy…so should I not waste my time then, or should I try and go anyway?

    #13153

    Cyrus

    well there are some good docs out there, but id say the avg. endo isnt going to have an idea.

    the only way your gonna get help for have low testosterone and high LH/FSH (testicular failure) like T level of like 250, but there going to think you have enough Testosterone.

    but there not going to help you anways because your Testostone looks fine to them..

    dude you need the test SHBG done, dr. shippen gave me a chart to see where exactly your testosteone levels need to be for you to be functioning properly.

    #13154

    Harland

    With your testo that low, I am sure that you will be able to find a doc who will prescribe testosterone to you if you just look around enough. A normal family doc will tell you that your testo is fine if it is in the lower part of the reference range, and a doc more up with new research will give you a prescription for your low testo if your symptoms match hypogonadism. Just tell ALL your symptoms to the docs and show them your testosterone test results and hope for the best.

    I would suggest choosing endochrinologists over urologists. Urologists mainly only work with old men’s prostate issues. Try to find a hormone replacement therapy spedialist, possibly a guy that is renowned in treating ED with hormones. I guess you could find one with a simple google search from a big city.

    And when you get the prescription, do not take oral pills, only testosterone gel on the skin or shots. Liver takes too much strain with the pills, and you might develop bitch tits due to overconversion of testosterone to estrogen.

    But, you are so young that I don’t know if the whole testo thing is good for you.

    #13155

    Johnnie

    Just got back from the urologist and he pretty much was just being condescending to me and made me feel like an idiot. Two things he said pissed me the hell off…He told me that testosterone and erectile dysfunction are not related at all, and he asked my why I’m worried about this at my age…I said well besides the obvious, erectile dysfunction can be a sign for other health problems and then he had the nerve to ask me like what. WTF…he’s the fucking doctor, why I got to teach him? I said whatever, nothing. After all that, he proceeded to check my prostate!!! OMG, WTF?!?! I’m never going to a urologist again in my life. He recommended an endocrinologist and that I come back to see him in a month, but I’m skeptical to do either. I cant go find another doctor because I dont have that freedom, everything I do like that I have to have my mother with me and she just wont do it because they all think I’m crazy and it doesnt help that my mother works in the health field(she’s a nurse), she thinks just like those idiots. How the F*ck is he gonna tell me a 400ng/dl test level for a 17year old is fine and that I have premature thoughts of erectile dysfunction because it doesnt happen at my age. NO SHIT, thats why there is something seriously wrong. I fucking hate doctors and the whole entire health field…I’m done looking for a cure for now, I’m not gonna live my life(especially in college) avoiding sexual contact with females because my penis is a stupid mother fucker… I’m just gonna do what does and recommended for me and get a test booster, libido enhancer, and a vasodilator for “penile rigidity”. Maybe when I’m older and have the freedom to do what I want you guys will still be here, and I’ll go try to find one of those doctors like Dr. Shippen or something and get healed.

    rave

    take it easy man it’ll be okay,

    i told you this before, endos and urologist are bad at these types of things..

    dr. shippen told me the same thing, its not that there “bad” docs, its just that theres no training on the hormonal level….

    i hope your not going to try to fix your self with T boosters and other supplements, yes they may work, but they also might make matters worse

    #13157

    Eliseo

    Max I understand that endos and urologists are bad for this type of thing, but those are my only options right now.

    No, I’m not going to try to fix myself with t boosters and other supplements, I’m just gonna use those for now so I can atleast have sex. I’ll just rely on T boosters and viagra-type supplements to have sex for now until I’m older and can go see a real doctor, you recommend Dr. Shippen right?

    Also how can they make things, worse?

    #13158

    Darron

    thats too bad man

    contrary to what max says i say first things first get lj100 and stick to it for a couple months.. as you don’t use it things will get back to normal again, so might as well try it

    see how you feel after a couple days/weeks

    let us know

    then let’s talk about vasodilators

    #13159

    Ramon

    Yes man, have you ever got a prostate examination? I wasnt expecting one…argh. Never again…lol Atleast I know I’m not gay…lmao

    You say as I dont use it, things will get back to normal? You mean like when I stop taking them, things will go back to where they were before I was taking them right?

    You still just using maca, viagra, and ZMA? It’s still working for you fine? Hows the sex been recently?

    Also where can I get LJ100, where I dont have to order it online?

    yeah you didn’t get a hardon from the prostate exam ?? well i never had one but i can imagine its icky jicky

    yep

    maca not anymore, im horny myself, only zma and viagra… sex is still quick ejac on first try but longer than normal… yesterday second round i couldn’t cum it was great after 25-30 minutes i quit i said yeah im not cumming and i was tired and couldnt pump anymore (no physical stamina lol) so i just quit

    go to a local bodybuilding store and get controlled labs blue up or universal n1t try either one of these, blue up with the yohimbine or stim free version is also good, this also has other stuff for libido you can try these

    p.s. im getting l-methionine from the store and will try to take 1000 mg 30 minutes before sex hopefully this will lower my histamine levels and increase pumping time

    Oh I almost forgot…they want to do some kind of scan, I forgot what it’s called, on my kidneys, pelvic region, etc…If I were to start to take the test boosters and such, would it mess with the scans? Also would there be any reason to go back in a month to get tests done again, or reason to see an endocrinologist?
