Shrinking Penis Syndrome

  1. Shrinking Penis Syndrome


    Before TRT, my penis was staying in the short, compact, ready for battle mode far too long. Is this typical of low T?

    I quit braggin about a big penis long ago. Erect size hasn't changed much (if at all) - so once a month, if lucky - I'd be standing at attention, in all my glory - all 6" of me. <g>.

    Well, as the 50s hit, I found the main man hiding out all the time. retracting to the point where just the guys helmut was visible. I joked to myself that my penis was turning into a clit. The problem was - that this position put the tip of my penis in a position to rub against my shorts - not in a pleasurable way.

    Since TRT, this is no longer the case. I'm grateful that "stubby" has returned. In my un-aroused state - i'm no longer retracted like I was. I guess I'm saying my penis size at rest is about an inch longer, and no longer experience the discomfort.

    Is this common with old guys? I remember a comment by my father - shortly before his death (died in his late 60s) - complaining about his penis getting shorter as he got older.

    I never thought I'd post a message telling the world that I'm excited that my short penis is back and working fine. (now if only I can find a use for my morning wood.....)

    We are usually pro-active here healthwise.
    Pines is wery important but it is only one side of the picture.
    When over-all health is optimal, pines have a better reason to work.

    If you want, post your complete health story, tests you did, we may have sugestions.

    At "certain" age, with the rest of health in check, one may benefit from Cialis 2/week, if anything, it may prevent wrong rubbing.

    Dad dying in his 60's should give you a good incentive to check your health.

    May want to read my thread, I am 67yo, at 60-62 my pines have given me warning, at 67 it is kicking the butt couple times a week and looking for more:

    Jan's BloodTest April13/2007

  3. Thanks JanSz - i do post from time to time, was more just adding to the anecdotal stuff here - maybe my "story' wasn't appropriate - if so - someone can delete this thread.

    Yes, father's death was a concern - but then he smoked non stop from age 14. Lung cancer. He was a one match smoker - only using one match a day.

    The TRT is going well, just wanted to say that in a penile kind of way.

  4. I have the same problem when I'm not on Testosterone. Like there's no bloodflow there. I think it's low DHT. When I'm on Test, my DHT always comes up and things start "hangin' low" like they should.

    When on Nolvadex or HCG or anything else to raise Test, I can get my levels to come up, but getting DHT to follow has been hard. I guess that makes me a good candidate for gels.

  5. Post all you want, it's always good to know what to expect and makes one hopeful to know what things it might fix. I have the same problem, waiting for the T gel to kick in. 2 weeks so far but I dont feel too much. My energy I think is better but can't tell cause I'd have times before when I was fine but then I'd go into a 2 week sleep time when it would take all I had to feel like even walking around. Plus my blood sugar always plays into it greatly.

  6. The same thing happened to me anotheroldguy.

    Definitely hanging fuller all day. Yohimbe can help this also (the good stuff).

    I am 36 btw.

    16mg of yohimbe and i'm trying to hold back a woodie all day. The stuff is pretty good for that for sure. (Too bad I feel like a crackhead when I take it).

    I did that and now it's 3 feet long but only 1/4" wide.

    Even worse than caffeine is sudafed. 50 mg sudafed I crank at aerobics but piss on three of my fingers!!

    451 mg yohimbe, however and I'm hangin'


  10. kwyck,

    Is that Yohimbe HCL or true Yohimbe Bark (ground bark or extract)? Back in the day I used some ground bark for a while and I thought I was going to start to screw even inanimate objects. It was rough, but fun.

  11. It was from bark extract. I'd love the stuff if it didn't make my head "stuffy" and hot and make me pace like a crackhead.

    I am fortunate enough not to get any sides from yohimbe and I have to agree, it's one of a handful of herbal/natural products that is a home run.

    I not only hang fuller, I get great rods with it.

  13. Yohimbe gives me some bad anxiety

    I may try it again tho

  14. kwyck,

    Where did you get it/what brand because the old stuff I used to get I can't get anymore?

    Thanks.

    Yohimbine HCL or bark extract ? Where do you get it from ?

    I have had good results with the GNC brand "GNC Herbal Plus Standardized". It comes in an amber medicine bottle with a sage green label, 100 vegetarian capsules per bottle.

    Amount Per Serving:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Yohimbe Bark Extract (Pausinystalia yohimba) 450 mg
    (2% Yohimbine Alkaloids = 9 mg)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    So my understanding would be 450 mg of the bark standardized to 2% yohimbine, or 9 mg actual yohimbine.

    Hope this helps.

  18. I have Yocon (Yohimbine HCL) . I gor my urologist to write me a prescription. It says 5mg three times a day.

    Question to yohimbine users: Do you think Yohimbine HCL will be more potent than Yohimbine bark ?

    Did you take all of your dose in one shot ? Like 9 mg or 16 mg whatever you have been taking ?

    Yes, as an OTC product, it contains the 9 mg in one pill.

    Whether that translates mg for mg in your prescription product, I do not know.

    I would try asking your pharmacist, because the real question is whether what is contained in an OTC product is the same thing as what's in the Rx.

  20. You may want to check your blood pressure brother~ His is a "much older guy" speaking~ I did yohimbe and it shot my bp thru the roof~ It may be ok for some, as short term use, but I would check my bp while I was on it~

  21. I am having a horrible time with this~! I am retracted to the MAX~ I got on TRT 200 mg per 21 days~ It has NOT helped~ I just switched from IM to sub-q this evening to see if it helps~

  22. Besides anxiety it can spike your blood pressure too brother~ It did mine~ Careful with yohimbe

    You're injecting 200 mgs every 21 days? No wonder you feel bad. Ask your dr to change your injections to 100 mgs a week or 50 mgs twice a week. Injecting your current way is making your T levels crash instead of keeping them as level as possible. Also get complete fasting blood work done in the morning if you haven't done so. You should be tested for more than just your T levels.

  24. Congrats on finding this "shrinking penis" thread from 8 years ago! J/K!

    Seriously 200mg every 21 days must make you feel awful. Half life is 4-6 days if I'm not mistaken.

    You are correct on the half life.

  26. Yes brother~ I feel like crap~ I just started doing sub-q / 20 mg a day~ it comes to .01 cc (ml) daily~ This will equal 140 mg per week~ I'm going to do this until I run out or feel better~ I will get a refill on prescription in a few days~ So I'll have enough for several weeks~ In the meantime, I'll try to find another Dr. and get labwork~ Right now I'm just doing it blind, but this "shrinking penis" syndrome and feeling crappy all the time MUST improve~ I don't think this Dr. is up on TRT~ And having been in medicine for 20 years you soon find that "Dr's are 'down on' whatever they're not 'up on'~ I believe Dr. Shippen's dad told him that in his book on Testosterone I read many years ago~ What do you think my friend?

  27. Sooo, if ... as I said: "I just started doing sub-q / 20 mg a day~ it comes to .01 cc (ml) daily~ This will equal 140 mg per week" ~ Injecting this way, I should "build up" over 4 to 6 days higher T and higher, no? And if I feel better at day 4 and even better at day 6, this should be an anecdotal indication that I'm reaching a decent dosage? What do you think?
