I think I may have found a method of controlling sex drive on TRT.

This is merely my inconclusive hypothesis based on my experience in the last month when I started increasing AI doses to find my "sweet spot". If I could actually control my sex drive in such a predictable manner, that would be insanely amazing!!

I have found that my sex drive largely depends on the amount of AIs I am taking.

If I am taking none = Very unstable sex drive. (This is what I have been doing for the first few years, but I have not done this in a while.) Some days super high sex drive, some days none at all. I never liked this unpredictability, and haven't done this in like 2 years.

If I am taking 2-3 AIs a week = (most of the time) Sex drive is relatively stable and high, I feel the need to masturbate 2-3 (sometimes 4) times a day. Often hard to focus on responsibilities unless I completely ignore it.

If I am taking 5-6 AIs a week (I did this in the past two weeks) = Sex drive drops to 0. My energy levels are fine, my mood is fine. Don't feel moody or anything or more tired than usual. Simply just don't feel like fucking. No erections, zilch. I tried looking at porn and it bored me. Didn't touch myself for a full week when I did this. On day 7 I finally engaged in sexual activity, and it was great and very pleasurable. But I could have just as easily not engaged.

In the week and a half where my sex drive dropped to 0, I was honestly VERY worried that something is seriously wrong with me (I immediately thought cancer LOL). I did not connect it to taking more AIs (because I ran bloods and my estradiol was actually high despite taking more AIs, so I assumed it could not be that).

I started this week with less AIs, and my sex drive IMMEDIATELY shot up again!!!

Is there anything wrong with taking more AIs when I want the same level of T in my system but do not want to deal with daily sexual arousals, if say, I need to focus on things for a long while etc?

Has anyone else controlled their sex drive this way? Is doing this at all unhealthy?

What is your protocol? Do you use anastrosol and in what dosage? Did you have laboratory tests like Shbg, TT and FT and Estradiol?

It would be unhealthy, if your estradiol levels get too low. Especially for your joint and bone health.

When I ran bloods (while my sex drive was dropping) my estradiol levels were fairly high. Do you think there is any risk to cycling AIs based on how I want my sex drive to be as long as the estradiol levels do not drop below the acceptable range?

As long as your estradiol levels are in a good range, there should be no reason for concern. Personally I've never had to use an AI.

@Pacman/ Please post your T protocol along with the dosing of your AI.(how many milligrams are you taking per week). I read an abstract several years ago about the effect of free E2 on the hypothalamus, which can induce ED but this was in context of overweight men with Metabolic Syndrome.

I stopped taking AI and don’t feel like I need it, lower your dose get a good T range no need to inject high dose of T then fight E with AI.

If you can....

At a minimum 99% of people don’t need an ai. Only forum I’ve ever been a member of is this one, nor have I ever read a single thing from “t nation”. What most people need is to inject a physiological amount of testosterone with a more normal schedule of testosterone peak/trough.
