Common Questions and Answers about Viagra and testosterone

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.
Hi Sonvolt, It sounds to me that you have 3 issues - possible previous Peyronie's disease (mild), possible testosterone dieficiency, and varying responses to Viagra. It sounds like what worries you the most is the testosterone deficiency. First off, the level of circulating testosterone in the bloodstream varies through the course of the day, being highest when you first wake up, and then decreasing through the day.
After talking about my sexual problems with the urologist and after blood tests he put me on monthly injections of Delatestryl 1ml. I than saw him again and informed him that the testosterone shots did not help my ED at all. Another urologist in 1999 had tried me on Viagra and after that Cialis. Non of them worked. While in the office this new urologist suggested trying Caverject. I was told to take my pants and underwear off and to lie down on the examining table.
Hi, In fact these are the very same questions you should have asked your doctor when he prescribed you this treatment. A doctor is obliged to clear off all doubts in a patient and you have the right to know about the details of the treatment. I am sure that the doctor might have weighed all pros and cons of the treatment options.
Suboxone not only effects sex drive it effects Testosterone levels. There is a lot of misunderstanding of this out there. Viagra and Cialis without sex drive equals an erection that allows for sex but no satisfaction to the male if there is no drive. Low testosterone causes low sex drive and erectile dysfunction.
Now, with ED problems which Viagra doesn't improve at all ( I still get the strong feelings, but no erection) and with Testosterone replacement therapy which has restored my testosterone levels to normal... I am at a loss to figure out what my problem is. Can it be the Zoloft? just age? or possibly something else... Would much appreciate insight.
when men get older they make less testosterone and in our industrial world men loose it quicker progesterone is the building blocks for testosterone so if he does not have the building material how would he build the finished item. its safe and very good for yourself aswell, it has so many benefits for women its mad they dont prescribe it from doctors. well its not mad its economics they cant make any money from it as its not a drug. take a look at this website http://www.progesterone.co.
I do get a full erection sometimes but it will die out before i get a chance to have sex. I went to see my doctor and he did blood work. my testosterone level is 362. im not sure if that is good or bad? I was obese and started working on it a few months ago. im not sure if that had something to do with it. now im 197 lbs at 5'11" tall. my urologist prescribed me anti-depressants which i have been taking for a few weeks now but still no help and i really want to get off of them.
I am 55 years old. No medical issues, I took viagra in 2004 and it worked fine for about 2 years. However it stopped working, my erections are not hard enough for penetration however I can only have an orgasm through masturbation. A ring seems to help but I loose my erection just before penetration. I went to Boston Medical group for injections, they get me hard but my erection lasts only 15 minutes and is floppy. My testosterone went from 234 to 263 after 3 months on Androgel.
He just didn't seem to care about nocturnals, but frankly, I feel like I need nocturnals for tissue health (in light of the Peyronie's) and also I might not need the Viagra if I got myself back in working oder, so to speak. 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.
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.
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".
That is until the introduction of Viagra, which dramtaically improved my sex life. To reliably perform, I needed to take the 100 mg pill. I have had very few problems since I began using Viagra which was very soon after it was available. Now, it hardly works at all for me. I am not taking any new medications and have even lost weight since I began taking it. Normally, I would have symptoms such as a flushed face, stuffy nose and infrequently, heartburn.
You should go for a clinical examination and blood test to check for testosterone level etc for diagnosis. You should avoid alcohol and smoking, take healthy food, do sensual exercise, counseling done by a psychologist. You can do some regular exercise in form of yoga, shed weight and have a proper sleep. Viagra has many side effects and should be taken only under medical supervision.
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..
I changed insulin to Humalog and Lantis. I started Actose, and gained 40 lbs over the next year without changing my diet or training routine. Training has been off for almost 2 years. I stay sorer and it takes a couple of cups of coffee to get me fired up in the gym. I’ve been able push through it. Last fall I began to discuss the health problems I was having, including a complete disinterest in sex and difficulty attaining and maintaining an erection with my endocrinologist.
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.
I am willing to to take an anti-testosterone drug if one exists and has limited side effects. I certainly don't want to lose muscle mass or grow breasts or ingest something that has permanent effects. It would certainly be nice not to have nearly daily erections.
Stating it the way I mentioned, you are not revealing when your last sexual encounter was (incase you didn't want to disclose that) and your letting her know that IF you do have a problem, its not 'her,' and also that with testosterone supplemetation the problem should resolve, if in fact you do have a problem. A women likes a man who is honest about things that bother them and in this instance you would be honest, but not revealing it all at the same time.
I am still waiting for reverse T3 and bio-available testosterone - but bio-available testosterone will be bad no doubt. Thank you to all who took the time to read this !
My testosterone level can be reason of shrink testes and penis size in width and length ? 3. Is low testosterone can be the reason of following symptoms , muscles mass loss , muscles pain/joint pain and fatigue and last of concentration and low sexual libido and mood swing. 4. I have one daughter and my wife wants more kids , does testosterone therapy is advisible ? if not what could be the treatment . 5.
These are equally important especially the ratios of total testosterone to total estrogen's(ideal range 80-120) and estradiol to free testosterone(less than1.0).Mac, your testosterone could be converting to estrogen and this aromatization may need to be curtailed. This can be accomplished with a very low dose of "estrogen blocking" drugs. Arimidex or Aromasin. By now you surely have been retested. What are your numbers? Have any of your symptoms improved?
Also, if the reason for a lowered testosterone count is related to my weakened erections, would Viagra help this?
jeez) but he noticed that my thyroid/pituitary readings were out of whack and he couldn't figure out why, so he sent me to an endocrinologist, who I saw yesterday and who re-tested my TSH and T4 and found my thyroid/pituitary readings back to normal. But he also tested my testosterone and my total testosterone was 169 (normal is 175-781, and as one of the guys in this thread pointed out, guys our age should have testosterone readings around 600). We're waiting for my "free" vs.
) 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.
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.
Right now they gave him an anti-depressant and viagra which is like pouring gas on a fire and water at the same time.....Thanks for any info. and if you know of a specialist we live in the south and would be willing to drive.
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.
