Re: Decrease in size and hardness
If you have a pituitary problem it can the signals to the testicles to reduce or stop sperm & testosterone production. This will cause the testicles & penis to shrink.
If you are on steriods that can do the same thing.
Get your pituitary tested.
Get your total testosterone, free testosterone, DHEA, LH, FSH, SHBG, & Estrogen E2 tested.
The total testosterone should be in the upper 1/3 of the normal range. The free testosterone should be around 2%. The Estrogen E2 should be in the lower 1/2 of the normal range.
The LH, FSH, & SHBG are hormones telling the testicle what to do. If they are saying produce more testosterone & sperm because you are low & the testicles do not, you may need 250u of HCG 3 time a week to boost the testicle production of testosterone & sperm. Hcg can cause the testicles to return back to size.
If the testicles can not produce & are shutting down, shrinking, you may need to get a prescription for a compounded testosterone gel. It is about 1/4 the cost of the commerical paks. It will cause your testicles to shut down production of sperm & testosterone & shrink the testicles. HcG may keep the size up along with the Gel for the testosterone, but the sperm is gone.
