Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone receptors

Avatar m tn If what I read is correct, this is because they have hair follicles on their face, but the hair follicles are not accepting the testosterone in their bloodstream. Either the hair follicles lack receptors for the testosterone or the receptors are not sensitive enough and only a very high amount of testosterone would turn them darker.
Avatar f tn Will maca block hormone receptors? I had my ovaries, uterus, and cervix removed in 2006. I use progesterone and testosterone pellets, oral progesterone and dhea, and Armour Thyroid. My levels were good and I heard maca works well with hrt to optimize it. I got severe acne on my chin and insomnia the month I took maca. I stopped and my breasts are deflating and I'm having hot flashes. The Maca is the only change. I feel like I did when my hormone levels were low.
Avatar n tn Hi, Testosterone irrespective of the source hasn’t got a significant effect on the size of the penis. The size is determined by the testosterone receptors which don’t change in number after puberty and thus taking any testosterone boosters is not going to affect the size of the penis. I sincerely hope I am able to address your query & hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar m tn Higher amounts of estrogen will also compete for testosterone receptors in the brain, so that the LH produced by the brain will reduce, which in turn lowers the production of testosterone. How old are you? When you say the hormone is not produced in your body, what was the measured level of total testo in your case?
Avatar m tn They are caused by the epigenetic desensitization of three serotonin receptors- the serotonin-release-inhibiting presynaptic 5-ht1a receptors in the raphe nucleus, and postsynaptic 5-ht1a receptors elsewhere in the brain; the dopamine-production-inducing 5-ht2a receptors in the ventral tegmental area; and the dopamine-release-inhibiting 5-ht2c receptors in the nucleus accumbens, which store-up dopamine.
Avatar n tn You need a trial of testosterone replacement therapy. It does not matter what your testosterone "levels" as this tells you nothing.
Avatar m tn I have read on many medical sites that this drug should not be applied to the groin. I have also read that cortisol can bind to hormone receptors in the testicles and therefore block out testosterone which is meant to bind there. From this information it seems like applying a cortisol cream to the testicles could cause many sexual problems. Is this possible and what should I do? I am literally at the end of my rope. Doctors are not helping me.
Avatar m tn Hello, Chap. I think your birth year coincides with mine. On to your question... Before I get there, know that I am NOT a medical doctor. However, I do participate on testosterone forums (in fact, I belong to an excellent forum on yahoo which consists of men recovering from low testosterone. A few of the members there are medical doctors, as well.) Libido is complicated, influenced by more than simply testosterone. That said, we should consider the actual results from your bloodwork.
Avatar m tn The plant steroids in saw palmetto act on progesterone receptors, that causes a reduction in estrogen levels. According to the results of a large international trial published in the "Journal of Clinical Oncology" in April 2011, estrogen and progesterone receptor status is a predictive marker of early breast cancer and post-treatment relapse. As you get older your hormone levels decrease, and your fat cells in your body increases.
Avatar n tn SHBG is a compound binding testosterone in the blood resulting in inhibited interaction with receptors meant for androgens. This study found that men having optimal an vitamin D amount in their system also had higher testosterone levels but lower SHBG levels. In comparison, men who were considered vitamin D-deficient or vitamin D-insufficient had lower levels of testosterone but higher amounts of SHBG.
Avatar m tn I have seen so many doctors and lately an urologist but they seems not to understand what my problem is aside the fact that the test result shows that i have low testosterone and cholestrol. But could that have been the problem since i have had it all my life. Secondly, i have been on testestorone replacement and statin for cholestrol and no positive effect for 5 months now. am also on icp treatment program which has shown no improvement.
Avatar n tn Blood work showed no major abnormalities other than a slightly elevated BUN score. Testosterone was in the lower range but not indicative of needing replacement therapy. I only occasionally get morning erections and get ZERO during the day. Porn is like watching a documentary these days as it moves me not a bit. Lastly, my sex drive is almost non existent...much to my lovely wifes chagrin.
919239 tn?1269394658 A reuptake inhibition of a neurotransmitter is way better, in my humble opionion, than the inhibition of the receptors implied with serotonin neurotransmitter. Seroquel is also a strong sedative, i know it won't be that sedative since you are getting the extended release version of it but still... Talk to your doctor.
3512689 tn?1347498623 An autoimmune condition and allergic trigger caused by effect of progesterone receptors on the immune system can lead to this problem. Urticaria, hives, blisters, folliculitis are few symptoms of this condition.Danazol a derivative of testosterone may be effective for relieving these symptoms. You may consult your doctor for relief in symptoms and an alternative birth control option. Do write to us again. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn Yesterday I went to his office and he reviewed the results carefully. Luckily, I do not have PCOS. The blood work only revealed high levels of testosterone (although still within the normal range). I have noticed that my libido is usually pretty high. That does not bother me, quite the opposite :). My main problem is facial hair (upper lip, sideburns, and some chin), as well as increased body hair. I know that without it I would be a happier person.
Avatar n tn it can’t smell a majority of all possible airborne molecules in the planet because it’s based on the limited scent receptors on the nose. I think there’s roughly about 400 scent receptors but it can smell so many chemicals with it. It is possible that a small portion and I mean something like one hundred people out of the 7 billion on earth that can actually smell PATM itself. And it wouldn’t have to be an unpleasant smell at all despite making people allergic.
Avatar n tn Age of 24, take propecia. My sexual desire dropped, no morning erections, and my ejaculate volume noticeably decreased. After a month, and a horrible sexual experience, I through out my propecia. Now 30, don’t get morning erections. Rarely wake up and find my penis a bit enlarged....but this is a rare event. My sexual desire has greatly diminished, and if it was a 10 before propecia, I would say it’s now a 5.
