Hi everyone,

I am the girlfriend of 1 year to the best guy I ever met.

In the beginning everything was great. He was on Cialis, but with me he was able to stop taking it and everything was great. Then about 6 mo. into, he stopped the sexy talk and became increasingly consumed with home projects, which I often helped him with.

Gradually, he started feeling very tired, mentally foggy at work. No urge to do anything. But he was still okay in bed, but not as often.

I found out he had been taking Yohimbe and Saw Palmetto for a couple of years

About 10 mo. into it, he stopped being able to maintain erections and soon after that unable to get them at all. Now he has hardly any erections in the morning upon waking.

I read that no erections in morning are indicative of physical problems, not psychological ones.

2 mo. ago, we went to a RN, who did saliva test showing low testosterone of 94. Got some cream that was DHEA, Pregnelone & Saw Palmetto. He tried it for 30 days, nothing. He tried it for 2 more weeks, nothing.

He changed his diet drastically to a very healthy one and is now quitting smoking his 15 cigarettes per day habit.

2 weeks ago, we went to a doctor who did a blood test showing his testosterone fairly high at 560. Now we were really confused. Doctor said maybe it's your thyroid, so now he is having that tested. Then he said for you can test your urine to see what the testosterone is being converted to. Doc said the Saw Palmetto could be causing the Testosterone to convert to Estrogen. Now, my boyfriend thinks the doc is just trying to make $$. He is fearful his insurance will not cover it because it is hormone-related.

The newest decision is that he wants to break up with me. He said he needs to figure this out on his own. He is so frustrated, he might take it out on me. I accepted his decision out of deep respect for him.

But, inside I am completely devasted and sure I am going to lose him. He says that it has nothing to do with me. We had a great relationship. We never fought, never any drama. He said he loved me. I love him madly. He's my one.

My question is what could this possibly be?
Thanks for any help.
