If the problem is a low testosterone level, Viagra probably isn't the best therapeutic choice. Testosterone supplements would be a better option. Of course, anxiety about the situation can affect the erections, and should be addressed if the symptoms continue. Blood tests to evaluate for thyroid dysfunction and diabetes can also be considered. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
This would scare me though that the Viagra was losing it's effectiveness on me, but in light of my low testosterone, might it not be that the Viagra is keying off fluctuations in my hormone levels - sometimes really kicking in hard, while other times not working as fast? As I said, I'm going to see an Endo, but I'd like to hear if you'd support this course, based on the test results. Thanks for your counsel, I appreciate your thoughts.
Measurement of free T is also needed, as in your case SHBG,count would be low, which in turn could increase both free and bio-available T levels. Again, low SHBG and insulin resistance are implied, so that you could be a candidate for type II diabetes, which could affect T levels, so that better to check the blood sugar levels also, especially since you started getting problems of late only.
After having lost my left testicle due to complications of a vasectomy and having had numerous infections of the urinary tract, kidneys and testicles I have had problems with low testosterone levels. I lost the testicle a year after the vasectomy due to a staph infection and nearly died. I have problems with vision as well and had to give up driving in 2003. I have Rod/Cone dystrophy and have only 15 degrees of central vision.
I also had funny beard growth and the same with my hair, and this is down to low testosterone, my way out at first was with DHEA, but please read up about it first as its a hormon replacement, and can have some funny side effects with the odd person.
Low testosterone causes low sex drive and erectile dysfunction. I give myself prscribed shot of testosterone twice a month which definitly brings back your sex drive but sex drive if you cant get an erection is probably worst that not having it, so I also take prescribed Viagra on occasion.Sounds like a hastle but put my performance and satisfaction to where it was when I was 25. That makes it worth it. Get testosterone levels checked. Simple blood test.
My blood work (dont want to overwhelm this thread right away ) shows low red blood cell count - consistent with low testosterone. Other than that liver results etc all look pretty good. Symptom wise - no morning wood, can still get a solid and firm erection on appropriate stimulation, lethargy and lack of motivation. I am currently trying a product called HCGenerate - has significant amount of the active ingredient from Stinging nettle which is supposed to bind / de-activate excess SHBG.
I did this because I now live in Greece, and the doc out said I had anxiety and just gave me Viagra, not good as it make you like a machine, and all the above should get you back like to some kind of normality, so far this week its been 6 out of 7, not a bad average..

) Been taking testosterone shots and Arimedix for about a year, however libido still *****. The testosterone and training leave me with a well fit lean body, but with low/no libido. I wish I had some answers for you but you are not alone.
Hi, my husband has mild depression, low sex drive, soft erections, desesatization (which makes it harder for him to achieve orgasm), gained fat around his middle, more tired, but doesn't sleep well, loss of muscle mass, acne on his back, low sperm count, low sperm mobility, and he's had benign enlarged prostate and frequent urination at night.

My question is am I write connecting the low testosterone number with my symptoms? And is there a type of specialist I could consult on an issue such as this? Thanks for your time.
Hello Doctor, I'm 36 and in good health. About 6 years ago, I had a bout of Peyronie's that resolved for the most part, but left a lack of distal rigidity (soft head). This makes maintaining an erection more "high maintenance" than it used to be, as I need constant stimulation to stay hard. Viagra really does the trick and gives me better, firmer erections that don't require constant "attention".
A testosterone level can be performed since a low level can affect sexual potency. An ultrasound can evaluate the blood vessels supplying the penis. Nocturnal penile tumescence testing determines the quantity and quality of the erection. It can identify men with either arterial or venous dysfunction who may benefit from surgery. If not already done, I would suggest a urology referral. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Hi, I think I have a similar problem with my testosterone. I am about 60 and I have a young girlfriend and she is always around and doing something. I can't do everything with her. I am mostly tired and sleepy. I also have no interest on sex. She is sometimes disappointed and not happy. I don't want to lose her. I enjoy every single day with her. If we just had some more sex. Do you think this I should take some of the stuff you took. And where can I get them?
But if the fat itself is not absorbed due to many reasons, including liver problem, the person becomes weak and suffer from Constant Fatigue and associated immune deficiency. Low fat intake and absorption can show all your symptoms. Have a look at the following article: http://www.dietadvisor.com/papers_letters_fat_and_body_temp.
I have been experiencing low libido and having erectile dysfunction for a while. Viagra works when it works, but with low libido, it doesn't always work. Taking Yohimbe with the Viagra made the situation more consistent, but caused increased blood pressure and upset stomach. I am being treated for high blood bressure with Micardis 40mg. Recent blood test was: Age 43 FSH 7.59 miu/ml Luteinizing hormone 4.33 miu/ml prolactin 9.
OK for me, I was given Viagra here in Greece when a was told all that I had was anxiety, its great when your told that, without any examination, and then given Viagra without any tests of any kind, all this I found out later of line, and after this decided that I then needed to find my own way out of ED if I could, the one thing if you start looking is DHEA comes up a lot of the time, so did research into it and asked on a couple of forums for info, for or against.
My doctor told me my testosterone is very low. (This conversation is only if you think the time is very near to 'doing it.'hehe) Then say "I hate to get so personal,' but my doctor wasn't able to give me an answer as to whether this would effect my sex life.' Your testosterone level could have been fine last month and all was well with your ex-girlfriend for all she knows.
It appears as though I'm on the low side of normal. I have had erection issues in the past and still find it hard to maintain an erection or achieve one. I can still engage in sex but like I said, it is not where NEAR what it was just a few years ago. Please note I'm only 25. Thanks.
That is a common affliction of cyclists. The other cause of ED is low testosterone. I suspected low T because I really noticed a huge drop in sex drive. I work in a place full of beautiful women. It used to be difficult to concentrate with all of them around. I had sexual fantasies all the time, masturbated all the time, had sex all the time, and then it all stopped. I see women now and I can tell they are beautiful, but I no longer feel passion or desire. It has been a nightmare.
My interest is in this connection between trauma (your motorcycle accident/operations and my fall off the cliff) and our bodies' low testosterone production. Please keep me informed of anything more you find out about that connection between trauma and low testosterone. Also, have you been taking a narcotic to treat your pain from the accident and operations?
I'm in great shape, have low blood pressure, good athletic stamina, and am generally healthy otherwise. At the same time, I notice I have other symptoms of low testosterone (such as poor concentration and memory, and fatigue). I am depressed as well but I think it's as a result of my condition. Has anyone experienced similar problems as me? Did testosterone therapy solve it? I'm also concerned about my ability to have kids.
I drink vanila latte's every day, and consume a lot of chocolate. I read about the effect on Testosterone, and decided to walk away from the sugar for the past 9 days. So far, it has not had an effect on my libido or erection issues. It still may be "stored" in my body so maybe enough time hasn't passed. I don't exercise much, and do not lift weights. The extent of exercise is some swimming and walking. I have always suffered some from performance anxiety with new partners.
But the doctor said his testosterone was low and wants to put him to use testosterone pellets. I was confused after I left and called the office back, the nurse said that even though his testosterone levels were normal that a study was done and that they really like the levels to be at 400 for a man his age. My husband is 71 years old and he would be fine if we could just kiss and hold hands and take trips together and never have sex again, but I find the rejection to be too painful.
Other medical causes may be diabetes, high blood pressure, heart or thyroid conditions, poor circulation, low testosterone, depression, spinal cord and neurological causes. You can take Viagra and use the delay creams simultaneously. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
I do get erect during sexual intimacy, but the erection quality is maybe a 5/10, and short lived. At 28...went to see a doctor.... My testosterone level was 350, Viagra took my erection quality from say a 5 to 7 out of 10. Now 30, and no change. Went to a different doctor. Testosterone came out to 305, and my response to Viagra was the same.
