Can't remember last time I was horny ...please help!

Hello,

I havn't been horny for a long time now...

Can anyone tell me what could be the cause of this?? Am I lacking something in my body? Also, I have very hard time getting erections most of the time. I know it is definately not a mental thing so please don't say its a mental thing...

I been taking vitamins eating healthy and etc. I don't smoke and drink(occasionally). I also tried viagra, its a great pill but looking for a permanent solution :-) Im in my early 20's so I don't think it is too late for me to "fix" my erections and "hornyness" ...Please help!

How active are you? Are you getting much exercise? Horniness comes for me after I exercise. If you are doing all the right things--exercise, eating well, not drinking or drugging, being in places where you might be arroused, finding adequate relief for stress--I would see a urologist.

Yeah, you should see a doctor for a blood test to have your testosterone levels checked. You do seem to have some symptoms of low testosterone. I would start there and check that first.

I had a test that found very low testosterone when I was 25. I had no interest in sex or drive for almost 6 years and tried viagra, injections etc. One doc wanted to put an implant in at one point. Finally a doctor took a simple blood sample and started me on Delatestryl--which is testosterone. I get a shot monthly and it has made a huge difference. I am almost like a teen again and even thinki g about whatever turns me on causes an erection. One side effect is I am growing more chest and leg hair and also seem to have more energy and shorter temper. It is worth it to be back in the saddle.

Yeah, that is a side effect of testosterone. Actually, I wouldn't consider those to be side effects - those are direct effects of testosterone, and is part of being a man.

Re: Can't remember last time I was horny ...please help!

Thank you everyone for your input... I think im going to go and get my testestorone levels checked. I'll update when Im back from the doctor...

I guess I just have to see a regular doctor not a urologist.

Thanks Again!

Re: Can't remember last time I was horny ...please help!

I have been having a similar problem. Please tell me if it sounds familiar. I used to have sex all the time. With my last girlfriend it took a few weeks before I really warmed up to her sexually, but at least my penis responded. We used a **** ring until some time passed and it was no longer necessary. My penis has always needed some attention before it would get hard. Just giving me a back rub has never gotten me hard before.

So anyway, months later I am now with my best friend of over a year. She's the most beautiful woman in the world, incredibly sexy. I love her more than anything, and want to have sex with her, but only twice has my penis been able to get up. I am embarrased, but she's been wonderful about it. I am totally into it, until I realize that I won't be able to make love to her and then I am sad for the rest of the night.

I wake up with an erection every morning. I almost never feel that *tingle*. Does this sound like a lack of testosterone?

Arrow Re: Can't remember last time I was horny ...please help!

OK... I am back from the doc!

I went to regular doctor and told him my story... and at the end he tells me that I am a pretty heathly guy and he can almost gurantee it that my testastrone levels are ok (by his diagnosis). He also gave me 7 Lexapro tablets because he says it's something to do what's "between the ears" (mental thing), and he can prove it to me. I figure I'm going to give it a shot and see what happens... He said to call him in 4 days and let him know how I'am feeling. (lexapro will help me focus more).

I asked the doctor "So i am depressed and don't even know about it"? he says YES to that.

Now about me... I am a happy and good looking guy, never was depressed about nothing in my life I make a LOT of money and never had problems with the girls.

So I didn't do the blood test, because he convinced me that its definately not that. I'm gonna take these pills see if I am really suffering from "clinical depression" lol.... and I will keep you guys/gals updated!

HERMIT --- can you tell me what's your health history like???

Do you have any diseases like diabletes, being overweight and other health problems OR are you healthy as a horse?? LoL

My point is can you be 100% healthy and have a low testasterone level?

I don't know why these doctors are so hesitant to do a simple blood test. It doesnt cost much, and can tell you a lot about your hormone levels. Maybe its because there's more money in it for them to push pills than to order blood tests for you.

I would be surprised if you're suffering from depression and these pills actually help you. I'm not familiar with the particular medication you are taking, but you should be aware that many anti-depressants have significant negative effects on your sex drive, ability to get and maintain an erection, and ability to reach orgasm.

Re: Can't remember last time I was horny ...please help!

Lexapro hardly seems like a libido-booster to me... I've taken it for a few months and perhaps it just a symptom of the underllying depression but my libido was very low.

Either way, depressed or not... only 7 tablets of Lexapro won't help a lot. This medication needs a lot more time (up to 6 weeks, that is 42 tablets in stead of 7).

I would look for a second opinion.
