Eunuchs don't always have impotence, just lack of desire. It seems that if you cut off your balls you would still have a better functioning than some of us. What are the odds?

I get nocturnal erections in my sleep occasionally, but I haven't seen a proper morning erection in a very long time. I used to routinely have to piss away a solid erection every morning before I took finasteride.

I should say that I was one of the two people who voted "not a problem for me," but that was shortly before I crashed. Now I fall into the "rarely ever" category.

I get weak morning erections, but not concistently. I get far better erections before intercouse or when I watch porn (half full). Shouldn't it be the other way around?

okay so i test drived usp labs powerfull since i knew mucuna gave me morningwood

first day took 3 caps, couldn't fall asleep

then next day 2 caps, was a bit better, still no wood

day 3,4 - 1 cap daily, normal sleep hours during workdays

day 5 - weekend long sleep fucking hard morningwood! i took a piss at around 10 am, then took a protein shake and fell asleep again and woke up at 12 am, with the hardest wood i could remember in times!

i went to the shower and normally my girl gives me a blowjob in the morning on saturdays/sundays and wow i walked to the shower, and normally when i stand up it goes away well this time it didn't.. i was under the shower and still hard.. i am dead serious it stood there for at least 4-5 minutes when she was jacking/blowing me, and then i got bad wood again

dunno what it is, low serotonin perhaps, high estradiol??

remember i am on trt sustanon 125 mg weekly and 3 x .25 arimi and no morningwood ever

so now i just bought proviron and i am at 2x25 mg daily and still no results, a sexual fantasy here and there, i do notice more zits and was acting like a real man towards my girlfriend (she told me you act like a real man and it's annoying, had an argument/fight with her)

i had some minor morningwood as well this morning on the proviron, i quit powerfull

if things don't improve on proviron i will up dose to 75 mg and then 100 mg, then i will quit

i am already noticing some peeing difficulty at times

Our problems could also be an imbalance with neurotransmitters. I'm going to ask my doctor to test for high PHE levels.

Please check out this thread cumwakka...

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4172

We may not be converting PHE appropariately. This is an issue, and this possibly maybe why supplements like Mucana Prur. and yohimbe*in my case better than cialis/viagra*which has been proven to help us with sex drive and erectile capcity are helpful.

i did yohimbine a long time before i ever tried viagra

8 mg dose worked like a mofo for me, but side effects were too strong

do you know if alpha yohimbine has the wood effects and no side effects?

yohimbine indeed increases my libido as well.. it's cool because i literally get spontaneous erections nonstop all day long, something i don't get on viagra during the 5 hours or so it's active

My friend...read my email I sent to you...It's pretty deep...... but yes I had similiar positive results with Yohimbe. The side effects were too much to deal with as well...

Don't give up.....

Been getting some morning wood. Softer than usual and not as big as Pre Fin days. Head still doesn fill up like it used to and its a bit thinner. But, a bit better than when I crashed in late April.

Prior to my experience with the Finasteride Syndrome, I used to pitch a tent every morning . . . No matter how many blankets . . .

Then I couldn't prop a leaf up to allow respite for an ant in the rain . . .

Now, I get semi-hard erections that can be suitable for intercourse once I stand up or just get off of my back lol

TLDR; I could always pitch a tent > I would always be flaccid > Erections occur on a semi-regular basis and are not so rigid

6-7 years on fina with 3 months stop every year
i had normal morning erection since i was on finasteride.

months after quitting sides started, slowly. (soft erect.)
one year off, sides growt very strong (no erect.)
2 years off, morning erections pretty good
(used only healthy life, antibiotics, healty food)

still have "normal" sides (low libido, prostate pain)

and one very strange, erection is slow for the upper part of penis
and after cum is slow to regain upper part normal size

It's something like hourglass
anyone had this side?

i see.

after long days looking deeply all the possible structure modification
i think that the penis numbness is strictly related to the hourglass form

i mean, now the penis form is less hourglassy and i regained more sensibility
Probably (i hope) regaining normal form means regaining normal sensibility

however it's a mere opinion

I've had nocturnal erections every night for three weeks straight. They usually cause me to wake up in the middle of the night. I do not experience morning erections. Is there a difference in the morning vs nocturnal erections?

Found this interesting article in the International Journal of Impotence Research (I wonder if they they have heard of us, seems like they must have). Anyway they did a study on men who were undergoing androgen depravation to become women, and found that nocturnal erections were androgen dependant, but erections for normal sexual relations were not. Here's the link and a quote. This seem to coorelate well with our fin damage. Many member here can have nocturnal erections, but not normal sexual erections.
http://www.nature.com/ijir/journal/v16/n6/full/3901216a.html
Quote:
CDU findings did not correlate with testosterone levels, whereas NPT test findings correlated well with testosterone levels. These findings would suggest that nocturnal erections are androgen-dependent whereas sexually induced erections are androgen-independent. It can also be assumed that testosterone is important but not essential for male erectile function and that other androgen-independent pathways can be responsible for sexually induced erections.


Its pretty late and im pretty tired but isnt this wrong way round to be right for us. Apologies if im wrong.

Tim,

I then again had some morning erections when I was on some herbs, that faded way too. I had my test measured after the morning erections died down and it was 600! so I was having morning erections at 400 testo but not at 600. It just seems to me there is more than just hormones. I think its liver, kidneys, urinary tract etc. all need to healthy and functioning and then testoterone wont matter that much. I think the broc treatment cleared out something in me for that week, which I havent got back again (I tried broc again, didnt work). I still wonder what it was.
Broccoli lowers estradiol through action on liver.
Its estradiol and testosterone balance. Saw palemtto and other herbs screwed me over in this regard.

Ever sionce i took liver cleansers and my ayuverdic herbs after a few months morning wood every night. It feels good.

Musleman,

You quoted you have morning wood at 400 Testo & not 600. You do realize too much T will converted to Estrogen, which will absolutely kill erections. Test your Estradiol levels if you haven't done so. It really seems to be a delicate balance.
