Avatar m tn Can worrying about having low testosterone or worrying about not having morning wood cause you to not have a morning wood?

Avatar m tn In some cases hormone failure actually is to blame for sexual difficulties. And one of the more critical examples is testosterone, the “male hormone.” It is produced in the testes and adrenal gland by way of a complex metabolic process that involves the breakdown of cholesterol A hormone called DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), which is broken down into testosterone and estrogen. DHEA has properties of its own that benefit both men and women.
1139187 tn?1355706647 I was just curious to know if any of the guys in the group have testosterone issues and are you currently under treatment for this as well?
Avatar f tn Any hunch what could be reason if male has low libido and ed in mornings? Things gets better the more day advances. The highest libido in evenings before getting too sleepy. What i've read men should have highest testosterone in morning thus doesn't it mean also highest libido? Why it is up-side-down?
Avatar m tn I work in a stressful field but take Ativan for the stress and anxiety. I had my testosterone checked a few months ago and it was normal. I hate to say this as I love my wife dearly, but can you get tired of driving the same "car"?
484508 tn?1290010544 Your physician has wisely chosen to repeat the test to confirm the value. Usually morning testosterones are highest though the variation in the course of the day tends to diminish as men get older. Generally, though, I would suggest a morning value along with a prolactin (another hormone that rarely is related to low testosterone) as well as a check on your thyroid function. If you do need hormone replacement it will need to be a life long treatment, just as diabetes requires life long care.
Avatar m tn I have used Viagra and Cialis and these do help but would prefer not to use them. The strange thing is that in the morning I get a very solid and hard erection (probably greater now than in my youth) which lasts for some time, someone said was due to morning testosterone levels. Could I be deficient in testosterone levels at other times of the day?
Avatar n tn Is it that you feel tired, or a lack of energy? Did you have surgery on the testicle to correct the varicocele? It sounds like your testosterone could be low. You should have your testosterone levels checked.
Avatar m tn Normally you have to check the T level once or twice more before considering HRT, as a single measurement need not necessarily be correct. Also you should do the testing in the morning hours. Measurement of free T is also needed, as in your case SHBG,count would be low, which in turn could increase both free and bio-available T levels.
Avatar m tn The TSH test is higher in the morning (one study showing 73% higher) than in the afternoon so the time of day does affect TSH results. Serum T4 concentrations peak 2 to 4 hours after taking T4 medication and remain above normal for approx 6 hours. Therefore, it is recommended to test thyroid labs in the morning before taking any thyroid medication. Of the total circulating testosterone, 60% is bound to sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), 38% is bound to albumin, and 2% is free.
Avatar n tn The pituitary is the master gland and it basically tells the rest of the body to release the chemicals to produce the correct amount of testosterone. Testosterone comes from your testes as well as from the adrenal glands so they should check out the adrenals as well. Both estrogen and testosterone are redundant systems.
Avatar n tn I posted earlier some numbers but then realized that the other "stuff" on the sheet was also thyroid related. So here is what the paper says and I can't make heads of tails of it. Thyroglobulin Antibodies <20 Thyroid Peroxidase antibodies <10 DHEA sulfate 157 FSH 4.0 LH 5.6 T-4, Free 0.9 Testosterone, Total 71 TSH, 3rd generation 4.
Avatar m tn Hi. I am a 61 year old, white male. In the past, I had been VERY heterosexually active. I am now in an exclusive, monogamous relationship. Three years ago, I was diagnosed with BPH, and prescribed a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. My urine stream improved. Frequency abated. So the drug worked. I asked my urologist to consider putting me on the standard dosage of Depo Testosterone, strictly as an exogenous source of free testosterone, due to malaise, fatigue, etc.
Avatar f tn yes that is perfectly normal, men have more testosterone in the morning than any other part of their day and so we wake up feeling premiscuous.
Avatar m tn but turning down my wife or not being in the mood has gotten real old. I had my testosterone tested 2007 total was 297..my doctor did nothing. 2010 I have a New doctor now my test is total 453 free 11.6 My new primary doctor and I agree optimim total should be 800 free 18.0 Doc says my testicles have atrophied a bit. I have a PSA of 2.
Avatar m tn I also think all my blood test where TSH came back normal were in the later part of the day. Not sure when my 0.42 blood test was taken. But I was in the hospital because my symptoms were so bad at that time. When I first got to the hospital, they gave me a shot of dexamethasone. I got ridiculously cold for about two hours. Then I actually started to feel pretty decent. Until the next morning when it was really bad again. Doing a google search, looks like dex supresses TSH.
Avatar m tn So I have been advocating to add back in some T4 in addition to her Armour dose, but so far I have lost this battle. My wife is now on 3 grains of Armour taking it in a split dose, in the morning and the 2nd dose about 3PM. As far as medications I am a firm believer that there is no one perfect solution when it comes to thyroid. Each person is so different, and what works for them is so different than another.
Avatar n tn 30-9am in fact) as instructed by my endocrinologists in order to keep the levels comparable, because as you said testosterone levels are highest in the morning. As I've said, I am manifesting the 'pathological' symptoms of low testosterone in those periods (low libido, decreased hair growth complete lack of morning erection, harder to maintain erection etc), but these improve when my testosterone goes back up to normal.
Avatar m tn to the toilet without pressuring the manner in which the penis naturally allows blood to flow out of it to become flaccid enough to allow urination. Sitting backward may sound odd - but it allows a guy to sit so "it" will at least point into the toilet. It also helps to relax and think of other things - otherwise you're standing there dribbling down your legs. Again, not knowing your age - your testosterone levels sound good - but it really needs be your own.
Avatar f tn Purple/blue lines and spots in veins in hands randomly one day...gone within one hour. Pins and needles in right index finger with lack of color, lasted 5 min; wouldn't change with movement. I have made an appt with a physiatrist. Can't get in until April. Do you think this is the right direction to go?
