A while ago I posted a thread about sexual supplements messing up you hormone system. I was talking about stuff other than Viagra like Ogoplex (messed me up), Enzyte, Magna rX, ect. My Urologist said these can really mess up your hormones because they are not FDA approved ect. Dr. John said they although the Urologist is stretching a little it can happen.
Now my next question is what about some of the other supplements like Horny Goat Weed, Korean Red Ginseng, Chastebery/Maca root (heard these two can help lower prolactin, unknown if true or not). Just curius. I am not going to take anything until I find out what is going on with my blood work.

I think they can all alter ther natural state of hormones to some degree, but it most likely depends on each individual. And whatever altering is done, should be temporary.

I could use information on how cholesterol lowering drugs afect hormone levels.
I think in the past there was couple of posters who had peculiar abnormalities in their blood test and they also reported use of anti-cholesterol drugs.

I've used trib products and maca products on and off since my late 20's with no noticable damage. Each person is different. I will say that a few years back I tried Paxil for anxiety and depression and NOTHING destroyed my libido and erection ability like that stuff. And I mean with the 1st dose almost. So yes, some of these herbal supplements might cause issues for some folks, but like stated above, prescription meds can cause far more. Since doctors recieve far more perks from pharmaceutical companies than supplement companies, they often seem to promote prescriptions over supplements. Just my 2 cents.

This is so easily fixable by diet alone its ridiculous. I can't believe what lies and propaganda the FDA spews out. Im pissed.
And let us not forget how EVERYONE on TRT has seen drastic improvements in blood profiles.
Fix diet, fix hormone profile = blood profile follows

Not even once I was told to use supplements.
My current osteopath when I told him about supplements did not get excited about any of them in the end hi gave me a script for Strovite Advanced and said to stop anything else.
Luckily he do not have a problem to write me any scripts I ask for (til now).
My GP is really nice person, he offered house calls for my mother.
Nobody does that any more.
