In this study, to was shown that seminal emission was radically reduced/eliminated for those patients taking Rapaflo. Orgasm was left intact.
Orgasm is preserved regardless of ejaculatory dysfunction with selective α1A-blocker administration

In explaining the protocol, and the choices he made, what explanation did he/she offer?
I’m a daily injector of enanthate, my doctor offers prop injections as well, but in talking it through we opted to stay where I have been (happily) for five years.
The blending of two...
You wrote that you’ve not done a test to determine SHBG. What was your work-up like prior to the start of therapy?
You commented that you’ve been on a protocol for a month; how much of the positive feeling you had at the beginning may be the result of the honeymoon phenomenon? At the start of...
It’s very easy to add an AI and lower your estradiol...perhaps too easy. It’s far harder to raise e2 levels once they have been sent to the basement and the patient is spending time in hormone hell.
Be patient and mark time. I have never used an AI; I adjusted a climbing e2 level by...
You were evaluated with the appropriate estradiol test (resulting in a 27.8 value) but there is no reason for estrone to have been run, none at all. It gives your doctor no information that is actionable. Don’t pay for it again.
The FSH indicates you are likely hypogonadal as a result of...
You don’t need to run LH and FSH - it’s too late. Those tests can not be completed once exogenous testosterone has been initiated since natural production has been shut down. They would have given valuable insight into whether you are dealing with primary or secondary hypogonadism (which would...
The pre-treatment tests to fully evaluate where things stand.
Total and free testosterone
LH and FSH
Estradiol, Sensitive, LC,MS/MS
Thyroid evaluation - ft3, ft4, rt3
Always test just prior to an injection - you want to capture your levels in the trough so you and your doctor can determine how well your protocol is sustaining itself over the course of the week - never “within 2-3 days of injections.” When were the results you posted obtained?
SHBG is a...
I would note that, based on the reference range, you tested your estradiol with the incorrect (standard) test that is of no value for men. All men should test e2 with the sensitive, LC, MS/MS, lab test.
Please be sure your doctor selects the correct test in the days ahead. This is important.
I drove to Erie, PA a number of times from Toronto and have also used Discountedlabs.com in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Chicago.
Walk in - hand them the lab order - confirm your identity - have the blood drawn.
