Maca, Muira Puama help with low libido?
Hey all. As per other threads I have mentioned that out of the blue I lost my libido and ability to get/maintain a bone.
I am 38 and on test-e. My levels are being rechecked tomorrow but wanted to know if anyone had any info on the benefits or bust of any libido OTC.
I think 80% of it is in my head and is causing me to stress out more so its a snow ball effect. Anyway anyone have any input on Maca, Muira Puama or other libido increasing stuff.
I am not a big supp. believer and dont buy into all the hype so wanted your imput.
One of the problems with trying to get info on these supps. is that most threads that mention these the people are using 3,4,5 or more different supps. so they really cant say what works and what doesnt. Most are also using them as PCT which means nothing to me since TRT is a lifelong issue.
Last, the past 3 days I have gotten errections out of the blue and have woke up with boners and dreaming again. So, not saying my libido is back but getting a hard on out of the blue and actually thinking of sex again is cool

I had something similar and realized it was peformance anxiety. Viagra, or something like it will maintain your hard and allow you to finish what you start.
Herbals did nothing for me.

Tomorrow make sure that you do the four tests below.
Blood have to be drawn at Quest Diagnostics.
Doctor or doc's nurse are screwing, just read yesterday's story that Phil describes.
Estradiol, Free, LC/MS/MS (36169X)
Testosterone, Free, Bio/Total (LC/MS/MS)
Test have to be exactly as written.
DHEAs 110% of top range
FreeE2 (0.45 - 0.6)
When you get there you have a good chance on wood.
No guarantee, there are many other reasons for ED, but at least this four are the easiest to keep under control and very likely they give good pay back versus effort to keep them in the right place.

I have no problem getting Viagra but was concerned or stressed for 2 reasons.
1. why did I loose my desire? I went from h@rny all the time to no interest at all.
2. why am I struggling to get hard, stay hard long enough to enjoy it and it doesnt seem to get as hard as it used to
these both came on pretty fast so sex life went from high/normal to almost non existant. Plus wit htaking TRT it does bother me (my mind) that my balls have shunk about 50%. I know, I know I need to find a Dr. to scribe HCG. Well that isnt a overnight process.
I have switched and been looking but most do not agree with HCG being used for men. I wish there was a OTC that would help my boys gain their or at least some of the size back and start hanging again rather than sticking to my body like I just came out of a cold pool.

Could be relationship issues corndog. I mean you did not mention it, but if the woman in your life just does not do it for you...
Old people go through this all the time. After all, we all get wrinkly and nasty looking when naked as we get older. That could be reason to lose interest.

Well that is a fact of life but not a issue with mine. I am 38 she is 27. She is beautiful, great hsrd body, smart, sexy all of the good stuff.
One reason I know that it isnt due to her or my lack of desire for her is that well lets say when I watching one of those special back room videos and no one else is home, my buddy doesnt always respond to well to self love if you know what I mean

Just be sure to go to a reputable health and nutrition store and be sure to buy standardised products.
Tribulus may also help with testicular atrophy, it could take weeks to notice a difference in your testes but there are other benefits that are almost immediate.
I hope this helps.

Supprising my test levels are
test - 855
free - 27.4
I was figuring my free would come back low or I guess that was what I was assuming was causing my low libido and loosing hardness issues.
Maybe will know better when complete test is done including E2. I did get a call that my hemoglobin was high (hmg 51 & hmt 17%) so I need to go give blood but dont know if this would reflect/cause any of my issues. I havent heard anything that it could.

ya, try HGW ( 20% icariin ) w/ Trib ( Tribestan is the best ) and Yohimbe / Muira Puama.... Maca's a prolactin inhibitor, so will push your E up a little. Yohimbe will definitely spike your interest and trib / HGW should back that up with the higher T to answer the bell.....

I'm 45, tried the "Horny Mack Jack Combo Stack" from NP and all I can say is that it had no effect on anything but my wallet. That goes for all the Trib products I've tried in the past also. Formestane + Penetrate transdermal is a solid combo with libido boosting properties that works as claimed.

Resveratrol might be something to trial. In fact Anabolic Innovations - Post Cycle Support has been getting rave reviews.

For HGW to be effective, you're looking at about 3 gms / day.
it works really well with Tongkat Ali extract too. As noted, most Trib out there is junk. Tribestan, although in a pink box, is good...... mots trib is Indian or Bulgarian root junk.... gotta be Bulgarian extract to really work.....
Hope Corndawg gets his game back...
