Avatar n tn ) 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Good Day...I am very frustrated with obtaining answers. I have very low testosterone, my last numbers were a total of 52, no it is not a mistake...my level was 52. I have had this problem for almost two years. I am 43 years old, I suffer from hot flashes, low to no libido, depression. mood swings, irritable, the normal symptoms associated and then some. I have been seeing an endocrinologist, however, she seems to only be interested in getting my numbers up and not the WHY is this happening.
Avatar f tn I must say that almost two years on and the only thing that has returned to normal are my periods (after 18 months) oh and my testosterone level subsequently returned to normal at 1.3 (the highest I reached with the tumour was 9.4). I know when I had my surgery I had pictures and everything took, as well as gave written consent for the publication of the case history due to the rarity of these tumours! Anyway hope everything goes/is going ok for you.
282812 tn?1225114581 My DH has a normal to low testosterone levels and also has a low sperm count. He was given Clomid. He started getting side effects from the Clomid so we dont know if he'll be staying on it. He just had a SA yesterday so I'll know in a week if anything improved.
138239 tn?1239928524 I originally took 25 mgs----my testosterone was also low--i had enough things off on my blood work that my endo looked at it and told me she had never seen this before---felt like I was some kind of freak of nature if the specialist was thrown for a loop. She put me on DHEA , testosterone, armour thyroid and hydrocortisone--after an ACTH stim test.
Avatar n tn The left side of my face definetly is slower in getting facial hair, I have other symptoms as well(no sex drive at all, depression), but this one almost has me convinced there is something wrong with my testosterone My testicle is also in a constant annoying dull like annoyance, it was worse last week but I think it has got better or I just got used to it I also went to 2 doctors and they said it doesnt effect testosterone and they said my testicle should feel better, they said it was inflam
Avatar m tn My husband has low testosterone and I was able to get pregnant this past may. Unfortunately I miscarried. Talk to your Dr. There are meds you can take that can increase you chances. Good luck!
Avatar f tn My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for almost 2 years now and I have been on metformine and clomid and nothing helped us, and it doesnt help that i have such a low sex drive either.
Avatar n tn He seemed to only be nice when he wanted me in bed which mad me anoyed and it was just going round and round.
Avatar n tn she ran a series of tests while I was in the hospital trying to figure out why my BP was so low and pain so high. I've now had 3 non-exsistant cortisol levels since surgery. I'm sure there will be more testing? I hope! I suppose I've had this for some time as some of the symtoms have been here for years, but never seriously addressed by my PCP until my recent surgery. It's all making some sense to me now but I feel terrible and very weak.
Avatar m tn Also she told me to use ovulation kits but if I already have high levels of LH with this affect the results of the kit? I am really confused and nervous about getting pregnant. Any thoughts on my Levels would be a great help.
Avatar f tn The urologist advised DH to loose weight because weight gain can cause low testerone and make him infertile. So DH thought for sure that his B12 was low so he went and bought some B12 vitamens and took one today and he actually has alot more energy. So he is going to loose weight and go from there. Is there anything I can take to up my chances of getting preggo since we know that the problem is now? I know I can take prenatals but I dont want to consume to much Folic Acid or Iron.
Avatar n tn I went to an OB/Gyn (had to wait for months for my Feb 08 appointment) and here's what happened. She tested me first for testosterone, TSH and FSH. These tests are screeners for premature ovarian failure (early menopause), thyroid disease and polycystic ovarian disease. Then when they were all negative she started me on a progesterone challenge to see if I have enough estrogen. I took Provera 10mg for 10 days and 2 days later I started my period.
546318 tn?1328197235 Hi Petal88, All the symptoms that you have explained sound like in actual fact you are pregnant, however seeing that you are on 12DPO and have got a BFN you might not be. Normally HPT would pick up any HCG levels by now, but can you please tell me how long your cycles are (i.e. 28 days, 30 days etc). It is very common in woman that have longer cycles (over 30 days) that they do not get a BFP until the day their period is due. When is your period due?
Avatar m tn I'm sitting here, swollen, cramping horribly, and having so many questions going through my mind. My estrogen has always been terribly low and my testosterone borderline high, and I'm not sure if those things can affect an HCG reading. I have heard that other hormones can, but I'm not positive. I'm unemployed, trying to get on disability for my heart condition until it's under better control, and cannot afford to just go to a clinic to get another u/s. I have no idea what to do anymore.
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
922048 tn?1387946184 If you need salt, take it. I have low BP and low sodium and high renin so I take a lot of salt in tablet form with the docs blessings. Those are my thoughts.
Avatar n tn I am 25 yrs of age and was diagnosed with Hashimotos 5 years ago and have been treated, but now having problems again. My husband and I are trying to get pregnant, but no luck after 6 months. Is there something that I should be doing that might help my chances of getting pregnant with this type of disease. My doc now hears a heart mumor and they think that it might be from the disease but in the process of doing test. I am really scared but want to get pregnant as well. Please help.
Avatar m tn I think there's a simple solution for OB-GYN practitioners, normal family practitioners, or for any female that wants to get pregnant or is pregnant, and that is 1) get your vitamin D levels measured and 2) supplement. Make sure you're getting enough vitamin D; high enough to make sure that you have optimal levels, so you're not deficient," Patrick says. “I think that’s a simple solution to possibly help prevent diseases like autism.
Avatar n tn Total Testosterone 55.1, Estradiol-6 24.3, Dhea-S 603.1, and FSH 6.4 I also welcome comments from anyone who had naturally high DHEA levels and a successful pregnancy, so I know that DHEA will not harm my pregnancy. Thank you so much for taking to time to respond. My doctor knows nothing about DHEA so I am on my own.
Avatar f tn My last baby at that time was about 5yrs old and it took me one yr later to get pregnant and unfortunately I had a miscarriage and my family took it very hard. I was about 13wks along, the docs didn't know why. So I got pregnant again 6months later and had another misscarriage and needed a D&C surgury. Doctors still didn't know why? About a year from that another misscarriage and doctors have done many different tests, but not one has done a test on my hormones being imbalance.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease last year but a mild case and given low dose Levo. I quit smoking about two months ago and since then have been exhausted. Also the joint stiffness that I had before treatment has returned. I read online that there is some connection between quitting cigs and getting hypo. I sound Hypo right? Is it possible I am hyper?
Avatar f tn Seems from the ranges I'm low in everything else. DHEA is testosterone right, that's low then. We did have sex Friday and Saturday which is in the Ovulation time right since Day 1 of the Luteal phase was Monday, so the weekend before was Ovulation, right? Or am I not getting this right? It's hard to do this without having a period to count by.
Avatar n tn All thanks to Dr Sam for curing my WIFE FOR NOT GETTING PREGNANT, BREAST PAIN AND CANCER, SLEEP DISORDER, POOR EJACULATION AND WEAK ERECTION, i do not have much to say but with all my life i will for ever be grateful to him and God Almighty for using Dr Sam to reach me when i thought it is all over, today am happy with my two kids and my wife after the medical doctor have confirmed that i can no longer have sex, i have never in my life believed that WEAK ERECTION could be cure by any herbal medi
Avatar m tn She had an imbalance of oestrogen and testosterone. As soon as she was tested she started treatment and her next pregnancy resulted in her baby girl. I don't want to give false hope but it has to be worth mentioning to your Dr. Take care of yourself, my heart goes out to you and I hope you find the cause and the solution.
285896 tn?1237214827 I've sat on the side of the bed and cried in the middle of the night and he would wake up know why I'm crying and just hold me and cry with me. He'd promise to go look into getting viagra or whatever drug the dr recommends but every apptmnt he's missed. We'll be hanging out and he's had guys walk up to him and say hey man I just wanted to tell you that you have a beautiful lady (black men and booties; go figure) but all & all it made me feel good.
Avatar n tn I noticed that I was getting bigger in the belly and was making jokes about being pregnant. Other people noticed and asked me about it, that is when I got a bit concerned. I have put on at least 25 lbs. and the only place that swells is my belly.Swelling is more later in day, after food. I have started trying not to eat as it makes me so uncomfortable. My butt and thighs are the same size. I admit to being overweight,but this is getting obscene.
