Anyone been on Cialis for extended periods of time to comment on whether they became dependent on it? Granted if you had ED before taking it and it fixed it for you then I can see that being some form of dependence, but I’m mainly interested in people or anecdotes of others that have taken it...
I wanted to crowdsource some thoughts on erection issues I'm having.
I am 33 years old, generally healthy
Started TRT at age 28 - after symptoms, discovered a pituitary tumor and T levels in the 100s. Ruled out primary hypogonadism.
TRT has done wonders for my physical appearance...
I'm 62 and have had ED for about 30 years. Looking back, I can see roughly when it gradually began and continued to slowly get worse over time. When Viagra and Cialis came out, they were miracle drugs for me - I couldn't have been happier with their performance. However, their effectiveness...
I recently came across these studies:
These men are not on trt, but could it be possible that fertility and libido are...
What I take for TRT.
I am a med student in my last year. For years I have been on TRT. Because there is just so much misinformation around, I wrote some stuff about what I have learned along the way.
What I found works best for me:
2x 50mg Test cyp per week (s.c. with 30G insulin syringe)

Hope all's well. I'd be happy to hear people's experiences with unconventional treatments for ED, such as:
Pelvic Floor Therapy for Men/ED (most curious about this due to some pelvic pain)
Shockwave Therapy (somewhat curious due to reasonable prices if done at home, such as the phoenix...
Hello, anyone else here whos libido goes down with pregnenolone? I use 50mg day and its totally kills my libido and erection, it took a while to figure it out. Same thing happened with even smallest dosage 500iu/wk hcg in a past. Probably im sensitive to increased progesterone from pregnenolone...
Just putting my feelers out there before I experiement myself. Has anyone used both PT-141 and Trimix? Since they work on seperate systems I don't think there will be much of a chance of complications but just curious what you guys think.
Could I get some advice/suggestions on my blood Test results?
I got the first test done in July 2019 through medichecks.com (UK) and a few repeat tests in Nov 2019 through my GP (GP said everything looks normal). These were done fasted at 9am

Even Viagra dont work. I mean, sometimes it works and sometimes it...
After taking it for less than 2 weeks, I've given up TRT androgel testosterone therapy since hair loss is a symptom I cannot risk possessing. Recently I read an article about a med that docs prescribe to boost dopamine levels in the brain that in turn boosts libido. Sadly I can't find this...

I’ve had a lot of erection success using the “Gene Stack” referenced many times on this site.
My question is this: Is this the sort of protocol that can be used long term or indefinitely, or only as needed for scheduled or likely sexual occurrences?
I’ve used it for months and hope...
Guys... Need some help.
When I'm high or low with estradiol I'm sensitive where I have a hard time with erections or get soft ones and have no penis sensitivity. Also I have low shbg which is between 13 and 17 depending when taken. My daily dose of test cyp is 30mg and hcg 300iu 2x per week...
Guys - realize this is a long read. Hoping for some help. I am 33 years old and have been on a stable TRT protocol for 3 or so years now. Recently, I’m progressively unable to achieve a solid erection. In my most recent consult in March, my doctor (who is great and well respected here) added...
I am experiencing some symptoms that I suspect are related to high E2 -- but I also wonder if low E2 could be the cause. I'd appreciate any thoughts from the hivemind here.
Current regiment: T Cyp 200 mg/ml and HCG 400 iu -- both twice weekly. Also take .25 Anastrozole twice weekly, taken at...
I have been on a stable TRT protocol administered by one of the more reputable physicians often mentioned on this forum, but have been chasing ED issues since the beginning. Most recently, I was having issues getting physically aroused, and would lose my erection during intercourse, which is...

I've been struggling with depression and low well being for about 7 years now (I am 26). I feel like I never hit puberty. My biggest problem is that I never felt like a man. I got basically all signs of low testosterone but when I did the test the results were normal.
