You answered "yes" to just one or more of the above questions but if you answered yes to all ten questions then you more than likely may have low testosterone but before you panic…
Most of the questions above may have nothing to do with low testosterone because…
Hello, I'm a 27 year old male that has been using heavy opiates for several years, and has currently in recovery on Methadone for 4 years - I mention this because it certainly increases risk of low testosterone.
Every so often when the fatigue and other issues become problematic, I goto a doctor, but, unfortunately, they rarely do anything besides telling me its due to the methadone, which it is certainly not - I have been on it for years, so I am aware of how it affects me.
However, I believe it may potentially be due to decreased testosterone because:
- I get hot flashes frequently, and just sweat profusely regardless of the temperature.
- constant low energy and fatigue (I sleep more than my cats)
- absolutely no sex drive, desire to have sex or form relationships, and weeks without masterbation unless I force the hell outta it
- increaesed belly and body fat that it simply mush even though I exercise daily and eat almost nothing - what I do eat is healthy.
- Very difficult time during critical thinking tests in school since I just become easily faigued, fuzzy, and blah to the point where I can't think or focus
- To be honest, in comparison to be past, it is really seldom that I physically feel happy, sad, anger. I may realize how I should feel emotionally, but I just don't feel nothing.
Well, no idea if its actually related to low testosterone, but hope it is since I am sick lf feeling this way. I am going to the doctor shortly, so I shall update this, and hopefully help others feeling this way.

what could be the probable cause and a possible solution to a situation where a man has no problem getting a firm erection at the start of sex but can only do one round? what makes it difficult for such a man of about 40yrs to get a second erection?

My muscles are small compared to other guys, but I don't think I have the other symptoms you listed. Should I get a blood test?
I saw in an article that you can put on muscle even without exercising if you increase your testosterone. www.sportsscience.co/supplements/the-effect-of-testosterone-on-strength-and-size-6kg-muscle-in-10-weeks/
Actually I do lift weights, but it still sounds cool to put on muscle so easily. I would keep lifting but also increase my testosterone.
Do you think that would work for me if I follow your other article about increasing testosterone?
January 07, 2013
yes, follow the other article

I don't know how this happened or what it is. But i was feeling a very low sexual desire for about a week or 2. I had sex on November 18th with a prostitute and that time i take Viagra 100, that was good.then four days later on the 22th i feel that my penis is not working.this was the first time i have ever had an erection problem playing with my self. I woke up the next day and it felt like i did not have a penis. Like it was not attacked to my body. It is the weirdest feeling i have ever had and it is almost unexplainable. There was no feeling. Before all of this I could rub my self for 5 seconds through my pants and get nothing will happen, but now i felt nothing.I have never heard anyone having this and it has already been 4 days like this with no feeling only in the last half of my penis to tip and its not to sensitive, The base feels nothing and i know it use to feel everything. It is impossible to masturbate. Please help me!!! and feel free to email me. firstname.lastname@example.org

In 2007, my wife of 30 years(sex with her was 2-3 times/week, she was a boring lover) divorced me. I then retired from my stress-filled, sit-down, self-employed job in the US and moved to the tropical warmth of the Philippines. I began to relax and eat fish, lots of veggies and rice. I began to work out using heavy weights. recently began playing tennis, so now the running around after that little ball and then going to the gym and no stress and good food, warm weather and a good partner, i'm always horny, once a day is not uncommon. This beats taking xpensive supplements. BTW, doing full squats, 20 reps, i notice for the nxt 2 days after having xtra hard morning wood. My happy-go-lucky, smiley, younger Pinoy friends talk about 2-4 rounds per day, it is part of their cultural expectations, that explains all the children everywhere here. I really enjoyed reading thru your comprehensive blog on Test. Thank U.
i am 65 this Feb.

Had similar results with a passion booster blend containing Argenine and long jack. Wondering if some how the blend our just some "male"pills do the opposite of what's advertised in order to play upon your insecurities and get you to buy more stuff? I don't have erectile problems per say but notice Fuller action with some supplementation, probably offsetting the poor American diet. No replacement for a steady gym routine including cardio to keep your stamina up.

Over the past six months, I have noticed some concerning signs with my husband. Our once VERY active love life has declined to once or twice a month. He has become more & more moody, often not taking pleasure from the same things he always has. His sleep pattern is completely off. I know, by 38 yrs old, testosterone naturally begins to decrease & according to your check list he shows all the classic signs/symptoms. I guess, what I'm wondering is would it be wrong of me to try to naturally increase his testosterone levels without sayin anything to him? He has no medical issues that would prevent him from taking any vitamins or herbs. I just don't want to humiliate him....

im not a relationship expert but you should maybe talk with your husband about this

I am 38 and for past year and half I have found that my sex drive has decreased dramatically. I only get the urge about once a week if that. I also have a difficult time getting and maintaining an erection. And even when I do it is short lived and usually doesn't lead to an ejacultion. My fiance and I are having some personal conflicts due to this and have not been able to conceive after trying for 3 months. Do you have any advice and natural supplements that we could try?
September 18, 2011
Yeah, get married before having kids without the benefits of marriage. Your testerone level isn't your problem, it's your morals and your priorities. If you think you have problems now, continue living this way and see what happens.

i really hope you can give me some sound reasoning and advise before i go crazy...
Yes I am a sexually active person aged 38 and would typically have sex 3 times a week, if not more - depending on my partner.
Recently I (about 2 months) have been on a mission to loose some excess fat that I had put on over a short period of time (6 months - about 6kg). By the way, my last check revealed a BMI of about 27.2. I enrolled in a gym and have been going to the gym about 4 times a week with an additional day of cardio workout. I noticed that my weight has moved slightly downward and that some cloths are now slightly looser. To ensure more results, I am taking about 65-100gms of whey isolate as added protein for muscle recovery. My diet has slightly changed to ensure more carbo base food is consumed in the day and protein based food in the late afternoons and nights. One problem I'm still trying to fix is...snacking at night...: (
The thing is I have noticed that since I have started going on this program, I DO NOT get sexually aroused as quick as before. Also, while I may get an erection during making out, I feel a lot softer. What's worst is that during intercourse, I loose my stiffness and get flaccid within 1-3 mins. To aid this as well as my mission to loose weight, I started taking a HGH releaser (GxxXXX-Plus).
Now, I find it even harder to get an erection. Its been 3 days since I last had an erection and during intercourse, my partner would try all tricks in the book but still I can't get hard...after going soft. I am not too sure if my testosterone level has plummeted because of my lifestyle change or a combination of that and the food and supplements I am taking to cause my inability to now get aroused and erect. I am also not certain if this is psychological or not. All I know is, it really is a bummer for someone who enjoys intercourse but can't seem to get any...

do you think you may be overtraining?
i'm not an expert but the HGH releaser could be causing your problems especially if you said if it started around the same time you started using the HGH
August 30, 2011
I do not think I am overtraining. I workout on monday & tuesday with a break on wednesday to do some cardio. So for wednesday I run about 6-8 miles. I continue with resistance training on thursday & friday and leave the weekends totally free from exercise.
Yeah I thought the HGH may be the cause but then again, HGH releasers are suppose to enhance sexual vitality and not suppress it.
August 31, 2011
unless you're taking actual illegal HGH you're not going to get any results form any HGH supplements - they mainly just use the key words HGH to sell their products but as to yoru problem...
I can't really pinpoint anything that can be causing your problem
