Avatar m tn I have been experiencing low testosterone myself and I have read a great deal on the importance of testosterone in the male. My male dog is fixed. He is 3 years old and seems very healthy. But i've begun to worry about his testosterone levels and how it effects his health. Is there a natural way to support my dogs testosterone levels. Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn It's about 90 days I think, that the male dog would still be able to sire pups after neutering. I think it is something to do with residual sperm (though how they live that long is, to me, a mystery) I know a male dog who was neutered about 5 years ago. He is still capable of mating fully, though of course he would not now be fertile. But he can certainly do it! So it seems there is still some testosterone in his system, even though he's 'firing blanks'!

Avatar m tn I starter with Androgel 1 month ago, and now my levels went down 75 points doctor prescribed two pumps , I am now even more tired and weak than when I started; in my first three weeks, I felt great. now. I just get worse day by day seems like. appreciate any replies.
Avatar f tn Yes, one thing some people forget is neutered male dogs can be quite active sexually! As years go by, and the testosterone levels drop WAY down, their sexiness goes downhill. But on many occasions I have seen a complete mating "tie" happen with a female on heat and a neutered male. But apart from the sexual thing -amongst dogs, often the humping behaviour signifies dominance.
Avatar f tn Has he been neutered? Some young 'entire' male dogs can burn up a lot of energy, and have a problem gaining weight, even though fit and well. (effect of all that testosterone) I knew a male dog like that. He was so skinny, though very well. It was like his energy was being burned off him. When he was neutered he was still as fit and active but seemed to fill out a bit more. Of course it could be that he needs a higher calorie food to cope with all the activity and exercise he gets.

Avatar m tn What??? You have fighting dogs or what??!!
Avatar m tn Hi, I do understand that the testosterone levels are low in your case and there are several guidelines developed by several groups who recommend the testosterone therapy in the ageing male. However, It has not been definitively established that the decline in testosterone seen in most aging men results in an androgen deficient state with health-related outcomes that can be improved by testosterone therapy. Hence, I’ll not recommend the same.
Avatar m tn MOST of the time, the excess estrogen is produced in excess adipose tissue. Usually estrogen is converted into testosterone, but in some cases, this fails to happen. This is the type of case in which something like Aromasin might help. I would certainly proceed with caution and under the supervision of an endocrinologist if I were going to recommend anything like that to a patient, Good luck!
Avatar n tn My husband's nipple is sore & red, looks like a blister or pimple with pus. We open it with a sterlized needle & it bled. Could this be a sign of male breast cancer? He is 55 & on testosterone. Thanks!
Avatar m tn Dogs will mate towards the end of her cycle. I know larger dogs have a cycle of about 3 wks. I'm not sure with smaller dogs. If she isn't ready to mate she will let the male know.
Avatar f tn right, how long ago was he neutered? If fairly recently, then there is plenty of testosterone still in his system and may be for a few weeks yet -to cause sexual stimulation like that. In fact -I knew a dog who had been neutered, and even 1-2 years later he was capable of a complete mating with a female -with a 'tie' also! But there was nothing wrong. The neutering had 'worked' and the female (entire) did not become pregnant.
Avatar m tn It seemed to me that the low testosterone was a contributing factor and maybe starting testosterone therapy it would give me the boost to start exercising and eat better. The doctor stated a second testosterone was necessary to validate the low level and that the insurance companies would not also a prescription without a second low testosterone confirmation. The doctor ordered a second testosterone level along with prolactin and LH.
765802 tn?1263300851 The average heat cycle lasts 21 days, but some of them don't go quite as long and some of them go a little longer. The key is to watch the swelling of the vulva. Don't relax and think it's OK to let her get around male dogs until all of that swelling is gone, because as long as she's even a little swollen, there's a chance she'll allow them to breed her.
Avatar f tn t want it, and other male attributes. In your case, you had low testosterone and high SHBG, which might have been able to be treated by dietary changes. But people are different. A problem is, testosterone varies a whole lot in both men and women, by the day, hour, week, etc. and even more in women than men, so the only true way to know if you had abnormally low levels would have been to test you a lot, not just twice. You did have the same levels twice, so it might be a problem.
Avatar m tn The endocrinologist said there is nothing wrong and wants to retest in a month. Why are my testosterone levels so low? Does this indicate infertility? ( I have made my wife pregnant twice once was less than a year ago and she miscarried) He asked me if I have noticed a decrease in body hair and if I have any children. Is he thinking hypogonadal? With my levels would that point toward secondary and not primary?
Avatar m tn I'm a 36 year old male and my urologist recommended I go on testosterone therapy (intramuscular injections 200mg every two weeks). I told him I still want to have kids someday, so he recommended I go on the testosterone therapy for 3 months and off 3 months and so on. I just finished my first 3 months and he warned me I would feel the effects coming off testosterone. Needless to say I have zero energy now, inability to focus, extremely tired and have a dull achy feel all around.
Avatar n tn I'd like to know what my blood test results may mean. I've taking diet pills (ephedrine/caffeine) for a few years. In last year my endurance has decline. About 8 months ago I started noticing Fatigue, memory problems, body aches and problems maintaining erections. I started taking pregnenolone and 7-keto DHEA thinking it would increase testosterone. I finally went to my doctor 2 1/2 months ago. He ordered blood tests.
Avatar n tn I am male and in a relationship with a woman that provides a nice companionship, but it has never been very sexually charged. I have been in this relationship for 3 years, but I have never had major sexual urges for the woman that I am with. Prior to this relationship, I had a rather high sex drive. Recently, I was diagnosed with low testosterone (Total and Free = 289 with range 250-1100 and % free testosterone = 1.35 with range 1.5 - 2.2).
Avatar f tn Not Males.....What your describing is normal behavior in an Un-neutered male.....However, with the length of this (2 hrs.), I'd be concerned about a back injury (Common in Toy Breeds)......Take the toy away from him or stop it by having him Neutered.....
