Unhappy I think i have a problem with sexual developement due to addisons.

I am 17 (male) last september i was diagnosed with addision during an addisonian crisis in which a was very close to death, i am now on steroid replacement.

I have never found Breasts or vaginas attractive, while other people my age do, and when i found out i had addisons and it can affect sexual developement and libido due to not releasing sex hormones i have been almost certain that is why i am like this.

I am not asexual because i do have some attraction to women and men.

It is quite embarrasing and i dont want to tell a doctor.

does anyone know if it will eventually come to me or if i should see a doctor and ask about hormone replacement.

Go see a good endo, tell them as much of your concerns as you can, and ask for your free and total testosterone levels to be checked. Tell them you have little or no interest in sex. A man your age should have testosterone levels of 1200-1600. Easy fix, you just have to open up to your doc. Good luck.
