Perhaps one of the best (and tastiest) herbs for correcting this problem is spearmint. Studies performed at the Suleyman Demirel University in Isparta, Turkey, show that women drinking two cups of spearmint tea for five days significantly lowered their androgen levels.
Avatar m tn I have read that a varicocele can contribute to low testosterone and a lower sperm count. As for your hubbies testosterone levels the ones that really matter are the free testosterone levels or the ones readily available for use. I have other symptoms of low testosterone too so I am working on that. I retested my blood and I am waiting on my results. Anyway good luck and do let me know. I'm curious about my options if i face the same situation.
Avatar m tn Have a look at your lifestyle and see if you can make any changes to make things better for yourself like having a healthy and balanced diet with fresh fruit and vegetables. Cutting down or cutting out smoking and alcohol. Drinking water so as not to get dehydrated, doing some form of exercise for fitness. Having diabetes can cause loss of sensations due to nerve damage. A HbA1c blood test would show the glucose levels over a 2-3 month period and would confirm if you have diabetes or not.
Avatar f tn i have just gave blood samples for SHBG but i dont know if the testosterone test is for bio-available or not, my doc not up to scratch on this hormone thing and my endo is all for keeping ;me in the dark, i wish i knew more about the whole system. I am on 50mg of DHEA DAILY which makes no difference at all and on fluoextine 30 mg and the testosterone patch but nothing seems to make any difference. moods are all over the place and depression can set in occassionally as nothing seems to change.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the response. CABG for the LAD would probably have been a good option, expecially given that an artery is typically used. Is it possible to perform CABG on a full-metal jacket? My cardiologist did say that surgeons are now cutting away the stent material that is blocking the grafting area. Is this something that is becoming more common and what are the potential pitfalls of this approach? By the way, I have all my procedural reports at www.lumponablog.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your response. There are years of history here and I don't have my records, but I will try to recall as accuratly as possible. My first urologist did the normal exam and lab work and diagnosed me with "chronic prostititus". Over the next few years, he prescribed many different antibiotics. Of them, two seemed to start giving me some relief just an my prescription ran out. I expressed my feelings of slight improvement to him, but he would prescribe something different.
Avatar m tn i am 26 yrs old.i have been masturbating regularly for the past eight yrs. a few months ago i noticed that my penis is bend a little to left side and i am not getting a proper erection. my testicle size has reduced. will this affect my sex life?
523927 tn?1257018704 Taking tribulus before bedtime isn't a good idea, as it can be stimulating. The only way to know if your testosterone is indeed low is to get it tested regularly over a month, so you know you're not testing at an unusually low moment. Most men, for example, have the highest levels early in the morning, so if that was the only time you tested it would seem high. Doctors usually only test once, which doesn't tell you much, since the levels change over time.
Avatar m tn ve completely changed my life 6 months ago, eating healthy, cutting the booze and smoke out and really havent touched testosterone boosting supplements in years. My doctor put me on Lexapro for my depression and xanax to help me sleep at night or when I'm having real bad anxiety. Lexapro didn't work and xanax is a short term fix. I don't like taking anything synthetic now but realize I may have to.
Avatar n tn To Hensley258 To get tested for low testosterone is very simple, just a blood screen. Although I was told to fast for 8 hours and get the test in the morning when your natural testosterone level is typically at the highest level.
2024499 tn?1341792292 Do you have coping skills for that? What I do if i ever feel like that is squeeze my fists so hard till i can barely feel them. Or for all of the stress your going through, go to the store (obviously not right now) but when you feel you can, get some balloons blow your frustration into as many as you want until you feel a sense of release and then pop them all, and that's all the air of stress and sadness being let go. For me it works, but everyone has different coping skills.
Avatar f tn PLEASE tell a trusted adult that this is happening. You need counseling to learn better ways of coping. I started cutting when I was 14 and did it for a long time. I still struggle (I'm 36 now) but have stopped doing that. If you can't talk to your parents, maybe go to a school counselor. I also looked up a hotline number for you.
Avatar f tn My daughter has been in her room for hours today. Not sure if I should "force" her out, which wouldn't be easy, to leave her room. I found her earlier with red marker designs all over her leg and curled up like she was hiding something. Shortly afterwards, since I figured she was cutting herself, asked her to take our dog for a walk. She didn't say anything so I figured she was outside on our roof.
Avatar n tn Hi, I too was born with undescended testicles, one came down at about two and the other not untill the age of 13. I'm now 45 and have 3 children. As for surgery I would not advice it as you state that both are in the scrotum now. It is completely normal for the left to be slightly lower then the right. A few years back I had a vasectomy and it formed a hematoma that had to be removed. After the surgey the left testicle was fixed in the scrotum and it bothered me quite a bit.
Avatar m tn Just an fyi- he also has a low testosterone count which is common for men who have had head injuries. Just thought I would mention it incase it is any kind of missing link to all this.
763297 tn?1281379425 For a lot of people, cutting is a quick and effective. However, you don't want to wear the pain you're going through now for the rest of your life with scars. You should speak to your psychiatrist about this as soon as you can. In the meantime, maybe you can try wearing a rubber band around you wrist and snap it when you feel like cutting. I did this when I was trying to get myself to stop obsessing over negative thoughts. It hurt like hell.. but no scarring. Just some nasty welts.
Avatar f tn Not particularly big but nice and deep. Enough to keep hidden and just enough to feel for at least a day or two. Push those urges aside and not in any way subtle comes the big dramatic images and of course those familiar feelings that come with them. For a lot longer than a moment,I like what I feel.... What I see ..My escape.My blood. All mine. An end and a knowing. And everyday from now I know gets harder to fight... Different thoughts and remedies.. All dark . All consuming..very welcoming .
Avatar f tn I cut because the physical pain of cutting temporarily replaces my emotional and mental pain. I also cut because it's a sense of relief for me. But I think the main reason for me is punishing myself. I cut when I feel as though I have eaten too much, upset someone or anything I find I have done wrong. I also cut when the depression, anxiety and eating disorder just gets out of hand and I feel like I can't control myself.
401095 tn?1351391770 I am also very interested in how the testosterone shots go. I have thought about them for myself. it is not unusual for women to be low in testosterone. it occurs natuarlly in women too but is counter balanced by estrogen. maybe i need some of that? lol, i don't think so. i have noticed that adrenalin is great for fighting pain(as are other naturally occurring chemicals)and have often thought about getting my levels of all these chemicals checked. maybe i should. Nick.
599945 tn?1240382354 Hi, I'm sorry to hear you're not doing well and you're in a hard time. :( I hope you have someone you can go to in the real world and ask for help right now. I have self-harm, too. I've only done cutting once long ago, but I hit myself when thengs get bad. I know that sounds dumb, but I actual do a lot of damage. I have put lumps in my head that didn't go away for weeks. Scratch my face up (because I have problems emotionally with my appearance,) pinching myself, etc.
Avatar f tn both thatquietgirl and heidi are right...two magnificient views :D I think one of the most important things to do before anything else is make the choice one that you can feel burning inside of you. Then find someone or something to quite cutting for. use your dreams, your hobbies, your family...whatever it is, don't let go and continue to fight the urges for them.
Avatar n tn Don't worry about them locking you up in some institution regarding your cutting. That idea is not true. Unless you have made a direct a serius attempt on your life and are turned in for it then they can not lock you away. In many cases there is a big difference between people who cut and people who are imminently suicidal.
Avatar f tn I'm still not sure why I'm posting here or what exactly I'm asking but after three months I've started cutting again and it sort of stems from feeling more depressed than usual and really alone and I'd just appreciate help in whatever form
