35 y/o with zero libido
I used to be as horny as anyone else. In fact, until about 10 years ago I was sure that I was secretly way hornier than just about anyone else I knew. Eventually I figured out that everyone's a closet hornball. But now the last 5 years or so my libido has been sputtering. It got weaker and would sometimes be nearly nonexistent. But it would always come back at least for a bit every couple weeks. I could have girlfriends and they wouldn't notice any problem.
Well now for a good 6 months or more it has basically been nonexistent. I never even jerk off. I go weeks. The thought of it is like thinking about needing to take the trash out or something.
There's definitely something wrong, no?
Anyone ever been through this?
I'm not on any new medications or anything. I got my T tested a few months ago. It was 546 ng/dL. Free T was 14.14/2.59%. Estradiol was 9 pg/ml. Everything else was in range.
Any thoughts from anyone? I really don't know what to do. I'm still single with no kids etc, although I would like to get married and have a family. It's not going to happen unless something changes, as I'm currently basically a eunuch.

The T test was 9am in the morning. Do people at least have an opinion on 546 T in the morning for a 35 y/o?

Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it a lot. Does 546 in the morning mean I would be something more like 300 in the afternoon, and therefore maybe actually a bit in the lowish range?

If I have low estrogen, does that mean I should not consider Clomid TRT?
What are potential causes of low e2?
I would say I am about 15% bodyfat and probably an average diet -- reasonably healthy but nothing special.

Here is the problem, your level will fall within established reference ranges and it is probably unlikely TRT would be covered by insurance and also unlikely a "normal" Doc will even start you on TRT. A hormone replacement doc probably would start you on TRT. There are many questions to be answered before you jump on the TRT bandwagon, and you need additional labs run, like Thyroid panel, a CBC, PSA, lypid panel, etc. to rule out all other causes (other than age or genetics) before you pursue TRT. The ability to have kids is a big consideration as well.
Stress, diet, alcohol, etc can all impact this area.
Hope this helps.

I would look to other factors. If testosterone is at 546 then you need to check SHBG, adrenals, thyroid , and neurotransmitters. Some times its not the testosterone which is the problem, but something else needs to be addressed. I see so many guys starting TRT only to find out it has been masking other issues which need to be addressed in the first place.
