Does having sex lower testosterone

Common Questions and Answers about Does having sex lower testosterone


Avatar n tn Hi, Your testosterone levels are within the normal range. I take testosterone injections due to having a lower free testosterone that 150. I believe that I only was at about 110. I believe that this is due to many cases of orchitis as well as the loss of my left testicle. Should your free testosterone have been lower than 150 the urologist might have felt that some form of treatment was required.
Avatar m tn i also would like to hear about this. does the HCV alone lower testosterone? as you know i have not treated yet and my testosterone level is low, slightly above the lowest normal. the level has continued to drop since i first had it checked 2 yrs ago. i'm sure next test it will be below normal. add this to the other metabolic syndrom things and i'm screwed! sometimes i feel what is the use of treating the HCV because i have so many other negative factors.
Avatar n tn My endocrinologist could not find any thing else in my blood to indicate a tumor on my pituitary gland, adrenal fatigue, cortisole problems or any thing other than having a lower T level. I do have lower HDL Cholesterol (High Density Level - Good Cholesterol) and I just need to get my *** into the gym more and do more cardio and keep taking my fish oils etc. and it will be fine, all my other levels are great.
Avatar m tn This is happening due to ill-supported adrenals/thyroid. It's important to treat hormonal inbalances in this order: Adrenals, Thyroid then sex hormones (testosterone, etc). Testosterone lowers cortisol (the "life" hormone) and can in turn cause serious anxiety, heart palpitations, etc. I am about to leave the house but will try to post some more information later. I will try to give advice if people post blood work/results up.
Avatar n tn low sex drive, lack of morning erections, less intensity during ejaculation, less hard erections, irritability, etc.. I had my doctor run blood tests and everything came back normal. Testosterone was 257 on a scale of 241 - 800. Doctor says this is normal and will not consider hormone treatments. The only medication I take is a statin, which has lowered my cholestorol to normal levels. I am not overweight, nor do I feel depressed.
Avatar m tn 20 - 6.00) Albumin 37 g/L (33 - 48) Sex Hormone Binding Globuline 59 (10 - 55) HIGH Free Testosterone 194 (175 - 700) ( OK for an 80 yr old man but not for me ) So, presently I think my estradiol is too low, my SHBG is going overboard resulting in very low free Testosterone. 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.
Avatar m tn I am seeing him tomorrow but would feel more prepared if I had a better understanding, as I've got all the Addisons symptoms I am now thinking its quite likely. Does anyone know if low testosterone indicates other hormone problems, that can be caused by Addisons? I haven't yet had the proper test for Addisons done as he wanted to rule out other problems (B12 deficiency, Lupus etc...) Any advice would be so appreciate!
Evillady Hormone therapy really does make persons feel more youthful and it does seem to slow down the march of time especially in terms of the bones and skin. I vote yes! Good luck!
Avatar n tn I think dr's should at least give you a chance to try testosterone replacement at low doses to see if it helps. Just because a testosterone level is in a normal range does not mean that that it is normal for you. The normal testosterone level is a very wide range, and what can be normal for someone, may not be normal for someone else. If you find anything that helps...please let me know. As for me.....I have spend a few hundred buck on herbal supplements...and none of them have helped.

Avatar m tn Hi Snookion, the only remark I would make is to make sure whoever does your blood test(s) measures bioavailable testosterone rather than total testosterone alone. Total testosterone levels means nothing (it's only helpful in trying to determine why you have low bioavailable testosterone if that's the case). The reason is sex-hormone binding globulin ("SHBG") that binds to testosterone thereby keeping it from peforming any function. SHBG increases as you get older.
Avatar n tn I have tried many times to talk to him about it and he will not listen responds with do you know I could die from having low testosterone. I just wonder if it produces some kind of high effect they like. Please feel free to message or reply if you need someone to relate who is experiencing the same issues.
Avatar f tn Hi Bella, We are what we eat, if your one of these girls who love sweet things, fast foods or junk foods, these have to much salt and sugars, these will surpress your sex drive, it kicks out of wack for both men and women our testosterones, hence lower sex drive, now the thing is, is this you? Please come back.

Avatar m tn I drive down to her place for the weekend, and we have an awesome sexual experience (she said it was the best she ever had). It took me a while to orgasm, but we had great sex. We ended up having sex on Sunday as well (Cialis should have worn off by then). I actually orgasmed quicker, but we still had great sex. I thought I was finally over the hump, and was at an emotional high point of my life. A weekend later we again had good sex, and the second time we try, my problem surfaced again.
Avatar n tn and i'm afraid it's going to ruin our relationship. Is there a safe way to take herbal female sex drive enhancements. I mean, does anyone know of any good/safe pills?

Does anyone on here have pcos and how have you coped with it. My entire diet chamged in jan when I found out and ive beem working out. Lost 10ish pounds. Im on prenatals and met formin.
Avatar n tn In the last few days I have noticed the pain starting to radiate to my lower left abdomin. I dont seem to have any lumps on my testicles. Does anyone know what this could be? Thanks.
Avatar n tn You can't lower yours, you can only lower hers, and you've already seen how to accomplish that. Put a wedding ring on her.
Avatar f tn I have heard that anti-depressents can lower your sex drive, but I have been on them almost a year and havent had such lowering sex drive effects until just recently. In the last 3-4 months I have not been taking care of my body, thus not taking care of the imbalance. the more imbalanced I get, the more depressed, anxious and horny-less I get. I tend to think that it has alot to do with not feeling sexy anymore, because that has been my problem lately.
Avatar n tn Something about the uterus contracting contributing to the pleasure, and if it's not there, sex isn't as enjoyable. Does anyone know if this is true? it sounds like people aren't having much difficulty enjoying sex, so that's reassuring!
950954 tn?1271214487 You don't have to worry about this cause it can be that 1)either its related to having sex, or 2) because your uterus is getting bigger it can bleed a LITTLE.
Avatar n tn I love my boyfriend with all my heart and couldn't be more attracted to him, but I can't have an orgasm, or even get near to one by sex alone. I know it's not the ideal, but maybe try to reach orgasm before having sex..with foreplay with him. That way, until you can figure out what's going on with the sex with him, you'll at least feel pleasure right before he maybe during sex you'll be more aroused.
Avatar n tn We did in fact use protection but i have a short cut/tear on the space between my anus and my vagina (the perineum). How does rough sex cause these things? we had sex a few days ago and it was kinda sore yesterday but today i took a shower and put vaseline on it and it feels alot better (for those who are wondering what to do).
Avatar f tn A woman can have an increase in testosterone and make her have more masculine qualities such as chest and facail hair and a lower voice. You may have your horomone levels checked. The clitoris does become erect (harder and enlarged) for all women when she is aroused because there is an increase in blood flow to the area. This is normal. Good luck with everything.
Avatar m tn A week before marriage, I felt a change in my body. My sex drive was gone. Had testosterone checked. Was 278. Went to doctors, did the cialis-viagra thing, but nothing. Tried penile injection. Gave me an erection, but I had no feeling. Over the next few months my testosterone dropped to 28. Received testosterone injections that raised my reading to 1100. The doctor said I should be able to chew steel. Yet, no interest and no erection.
Avatar n tn YES, Welbutrin can and does cause seizures. It is well worth considering this fact if you are thinking of taking this medication. It happened twice to me. Both times with no warning.The first time I was traveling in China with a large tour group (no ill effects, my travel partner let me sleep it off and the next day I was fine) (the hotel doctor spoke no English). The second time I was visiting my father in a nursing home in Calif.
434196 tn?1206389470 He is concerned that his that his sex drive won't come back to be what it used to, and he is having a problem getting an erection. How long, if ever, does it take to come back to normal???
Avatar f tn If a man is really skinny and has low muscle mass and a higher voice, is he automatically lower in testosterone and lower on the sex drive scale? Would a really skinny guy be an automatic red flag for lacking affection and sexual desires? Do men with low testosterone have smaller penises? Also, I have a question about pornography... If a guy keeps falling into pornography and having a lot of trouble with it, does it greatly affect his relationship with women?
