    I just finished up with my appoint with one of the worlds best, Dr. Shippen.

    we had a long and detailed chat about hormones (2 hour office visit)

    We discussed the potential causes of my low testosterone, its very hard for him or me to pinpoint the excat cause, but he believes, poor diet and drug usage probably caused the damage on a hormonally level; he did mention that sexual problems are related to neurotransmitters, but he said the brain is amazing and can repair the damage that was done be excessive abuses.

    I mentioned the over-masturbation and starting at young ages. he doesnt believe these are the causes to my problems.

    so hes got me on selegiline and Clomiphene plus increasing my Armour. he told me probably in a couple of weeks i should be rockn N’ rolln.

    “you should be able to bang all night”

    and i said what if i cant, he said then we’ll try something else, he told me my problem is hormonal and it can be fixed, trial and error.

    he told me to avoid OCT the supplements, they wont help much, he recommended just a multi vitamin.

    I told him i do a lot of research online, he recommend i dont look into it to much there a lot of misinformation out there, he said its not worth it.

    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

    Max Do you mean OTC supplements? If so, does he mean like those used to give one an erection?

    #4722

    Williams

    over the couter,,, he told me not to take anything like DHEA or whatever, he told me a good multi is enough.

    i asked him about DIM, he said young men rarely if ever have problems with being to estrogenic or testoterone being converted into DHT. he said that problem usually occurrs in older men.

    he told me just to avoid all supplements like DIM/DHEA, etc.

    Max You think I should stop my zinc/DIM regimine now then? I have been getting stomach pain, but it has gotten better the longer I’ve been on it.

    #4724

    Myron

    yes stop.

    and shippen would tell you the same.

    #4725

    Samuel

    Among the hundreds of supplements/substances I’ve dealt with, were the prescription drugs Clomind (which you mentioned) and Nolvadex (a similar drug to Clomid). They did not do much for me.

    #4729

    Kurtis

    I did not get a testosterone test after I took Clomid. But apparently, testosterone was not the main problem I’m dealing with as the drugs did nothing for me sexual wise.

    #4730

    Elliot

    are you not planning to do more tests. cortisol for adrenal fatigue as an example.

    #4731

    Adolph

    max… did shippen tell you if you get better you have to be on clomid e.g. for the rest of your life?

    i know for the testosterone gels and so forth you need to have it all the time..

    i wanna raise the point in what the difference is between having to take test all your life versus taking a vasodilator to get a good erection all your life… i mean your basically stuck with some stuff all your life so i dont see the difference between taking test or viagra e.g.

    or did shippen say this medication will kickstart your hpta again and start the test producing process back up again???

    love to hear your take on this

    @blue: , can you maybe in your log post stuff on what else you tried and what DIDN’t work, i know you did but i suspect you must have experimented with more supps? thx..

    #4734

    Jeffrey

    Thanks for the update and valuable info Max.

    I am interested in seeing Dr. Shippen as well as I live within PA.

    Where in Pennsylvania is he located and how can one get in contact with him for an appointment?

    Also, how much did it cost you? And how much are your prescriptions now gonna cost ya?

    Max,

    Why will you need to take “armour thyroid” for life?

    #4738

    Demarcus

    because i have hashimotos, so i’ll need thyroid replacement..

    Dr Eugene MD Shippen

    9 E Lancaster Ave

    Reading, PA 19607-2631

    (610) 777-7896

    cost is 525$, you pay for it then submit your bill to insurance. my insurance is going to cover 90% of this.

    my medicine was 65$ for about a 2-4 month supply, i may only need 4 months supply too.

    #4740

    Kraig

    Max what u mean there only their temporary? You mean that you only have to take them for 4-6 months and then you’re done or it only lasts 4-6 months then you got to take it again?

    #4742

    Nolan

    i’ll be done in 6 months. there to get my pitutitary running again, its in sleeping mode right now, these drugs wake it up and tell it to start producing some testosteron!!!

    #4743

    Rodney

    Max

    Thanks Max. Reading is only 50 minutes away from me.

    How did you set up your appointment? Did you say that you wanted to meet him to discuss hormonal imbalances, sexual exhaustion, etc.?

    And the $65 cost for your meds, was that before or after insurance?

    Lastly, did the Dr. simply prescribe on the basis of your verbal testimony/description of your problems/symptoms? Or did he run tests for you or ask that you bring your previous test results or something?

    Regardless, thanks alot for the info.

    #4744

    Kermit

    you just call in and ask for an appointment, id make sure you have low testosterone before seeing him though.

    after you call and set up an appt. they have you write a letter describing everything thats wrong with you, you also submit any previous lab work, a 150$ deposit is given too.

    he doesnt believe in sexual exhaustion, he doesnt believe to much masturbation is the cause or starting masturbating to young, i still think masturbating shouldnt be done more than once a week personally.

    shippen spent at least 1.5 hours with me, as soon as you sit down him he gets right to business, he doesnt mess around and gets to the point.

    65$ was the cost before the insurance.

    so basically if you have good insurance, they should cover 90% of all the costs.

    after he reviews all this he put on a 1week clomi test to see if your primary or secondary.

    it takes 7 weeks to see him after you call to make an appointment.

    i have a feeling it will all be worth it in the end.

    when it comes to hormones you just cant find a better doc than him. he gets patients from all over the world.

    #4746

    Antoine

    whats his thoughts about neurotransmitter deficiencies? does he find the idea plausible?

    #4747

    Jim

    yes!

    he talked about neurotransmitters, he said the only way my sexual problems could be permanent is if i burned them all out; but he said that only happens with the really heavy cocaine / meth users. he said that usually the light druggers usually heal there neutoransmitters by simply cutting out drugs.

    and he said once all your hormones get rebalanced (thyroid, testosterone) all the neurotransmitters will be back up to fulll function.

    i mentioned something to him about masturabating and burning out neurons, he just he doesnt thinks thats possible, unless your abusing masturbating in a highly way ie 2-5x a day. but even then he said its not not possible.

    he beleives in my case. poor diet, genetics, drugs, plus my antibodys disease all added up over the years giving my bad ED and low testosterone levels.

    we’ll see….

    i dont have an estrogen problem…

    my T levels went up to almost 900 but E2 only went up a bit

    #4754

    Landon

    Max, what about your diet does the Dr. think contributed to your condition? Did he make any suggestions or recommendations for your diet since seeing him?

    And what types of drugs did you use/abuse and in what quantities?

    #4756

    Kirk

    he said its really hard to dertermine the exact cause of my low testosterone,

    he said poor diet as a youth, drug using, genetics… all play a role.

    he recommends just a general healthy diet just eat natural and whole and thats good enough.

    mostly alcohol and pot with cocaine a few dozen times, did this for a good 2 years…

    some people can eat poor and do drugs for 5-20 years and be perfectly fine, other do a tiny bit and it messes them up hormonally big time.

    #4758

    Dana

    Max I have no idea what my problem is man…you said he said overmasturbation cannot be the cause of this? I find that hard to believe man…I dont care what he says, overmasturbation caused my hormonal problems. Also, max…you get my PM?

    #4759

    Caleb

    no i didnt

    at first i was convinced over masturbation is the cause, but im starting to rethink that.

    masturbating has been practiced since the dawn of time!

    i mean masturbating could make us weak over time, but theres another root cause either by poor diet or genetics. im guessing diet plays a key role.

    there was a study done, men have far lower testosterone levels than that of 50 years ago!

    the average person consumes 150lbs of sugar a year, 100 years ago the average person consumed 10lbs of sugar.

    the average person drinks massive amounts of liquids / foods that are stored long periods of times in plastics that will produce estrogenic effects in male

    Soy is now in almost every procressed food there is.

    Meat and milk contain high

    amouts of growth hormones and other toxic chemicals.

    the average america walks 1/10 of a mile a day

    the average american gets little sunshine (vitamin D)

    when you add up these, how can you keep producing healthy vital males?

    its not possible

    and how can you keep up ejaculating when your doing the above?

    your body just gets more and more drained of minerals eventually creating a hormonal imbalance (low testosterone)

    eat the way a human is meant to eat, you can blow your load 5x a day and it wont matter.

    And Chinese medicine has known for a few thousand years that sexual excess causes these problems.

    And these quotes from a 19th century doctor who saw many cases.

    Quote:

    Don’t forget, it’s not just poor erections. Symptoms include eye floaters, tinnitus, light sensitivity, shrunken penis, cold penis, burning in groin area, anxiety, bags under eyes, immune system problems, joint pain, sleep problems, night emissions, rapid aging, hair loss, and many more.

    I have ALL of the symptoms that Dr. Lin, Homeopathy, TCM, and my 19th century book says will occur from excessive sexual activity.

    I am 100% convinced that excessive sexual activity / masturbation is the cause.

    #4762

    Bart

    yeah it gets confusing, but i guess the fact is, it doesnt matter what the cause is.

    they all point to a hormonal imbalance, in most cases.

    which then all cases can be reversed.

    it would make sense though that masturbating is the root cause. im still not sure why every medical doctor will say its perfectly healthy.

    dr. lin is not an M.D.

    #4764

    Thanks for sharing Max!

    I was on clomid (25mg/day) for five days but did not feel anything worth reporting during that short time.

    May I ask what kind of dose Dr. Shippen recommended for clomid and selegiline? Is selegiline oral, sublingual or patch type?

    Awesome that you found a good doctor. How have you been feeling with higher T levels?

    #4766

    Lewis

    Frank, what’s the title of this 19th century book you got again?

    #4768

    Louis

    well from what i heard it can take months to get feel anything from Clomid

    the clomid im taking 3x a week at 15mg and

    selegiline im taking .5mg; its a gel you put on your skin.

    im getting TEstosterone and E2 every 2 weeks done, im guessing shippen will either increase or change medicines over time, depending on where my T levels stand and on how i feel.

    im betting my T levels will stabalize around 700-900ng/dl

    im guessing its going to take 4 months to see the full effect, if not then i’ll move on to HCG

    im betting once i get up to 3-5grains armour thats really going todo it for me, but we’l see

    when the body is given the proper rest and medicine it can heal, it has amazing properties

    even if masturbating is the root cause i find its very hard that the damage is permanent, the only permanent damage i see possible is if they used drugs (meth.cocaine)

    dr.lin said like 90% of people will get better if they just reduce masturbating to once a week. and the other 10% probable have a big hormonal imbalance, like everyone here

    dr. lin said a testosterone level of 700-900ng/dl is needed for good sexual performance.

    and every testosterone results i have seen on this, noone had that high

    i beleive and maybe ? but there able to have sex and is healed now

    #4774

    Haywood

    Max

    yes.. i have 792 ng/dl

    when i smoke my circles under the eyes get darker/bigger this indicates it somehow inflicts stress on my body

    funny thing someone i know stopped smoking, but not entirely that day he didnt feel like smoking, he said “yeah don’t you ever get tired if you have another smoke? i do”

    also when i take 5-htp i feel less stress and i swear my dark circles disappear

    also max what you say about good food is true.. today had a very good breakfast and felt way better

    what jobe27 also says.. if you have enough rest and keep ejaculation to once a week instead of every day/2 days you will feel better

    too much coffee (and the sugar with it) is bad for the adrenals.. the more i take the worse i feel after three

    i wanna start bodybuilding again and take weight gainers to increase caloric intake, and have more good food because it makes me feel good, only concern with it is the amount of histidine in a protein shake in comparison to methionine.. i suspect this will make my PE worse

    i just started lifting on monday…

    im doing high protein / fat and somewhat low carbs

    like i eat oatmeal for breakfast and i will eat fruit.

    i feel good when i eat mostly meat and vegetables with some type of carb in the morning… plus i get ripped so fast!

    #4777

    Max You get ripped so fast? How are your test levels right now? Well how long have you been taking those 2 things Dr. Shippen gave you?

    Max,

    What happened with your Clomid/Seligine program?

    I’ve been to Shippen and he didn’t help me one bit~

    Clomid was an absolute failure.

    hCG was an absolute failure.
