Erectile Dysfunction on Test only Cycle?
Quick summary guys: Running a 500 mg a week bread and butter Test E cycle. Im into week 7 of 12. I have been taking arimidex .5 about every 3 or 4 days as needed and 25 mg of proviron 3 times daily spaced evenly apart. Proviron gave me insane wood and unquenchable libido, but I decided to cut it back due to some hairloss sides. Anyway ,ive been running into some ed issues lately. Namely difficulty maintaining an erection, weak erection and loss of sensitivity, no morning wood. I will admit, I have been a bit lax this cycle with my adex use, primarily because I thought proviron had sufficient AI activity, though I am starting to think I was mistaken. Is it possible my estro is too high? Id like some input from guys who've experienced this rather contradictory phenomenon on test cycles and how they remedied the situation. I will also admit, this cycle has not been great, I mean ive gained but im bloating and have experienced some abdominal fat gain, which is not what usually happens when I run test. I have already started by taking a 1 mg tablet of adex and plan to dose it back at .25 eod in about 4 to 5 days while dropping my test to about 350 which seems to be the sweet spot for me. Thanks in advance.

Definitely sounds like your estrogen is too high, especially since cutting back your AI dose and that's when the ED started occurring.

I agree completely. I had the following drawn today:
I am fairly young however, so i doubt hardening of the arteries is an issue at my age, 27, though i suppose its possible. The odd thing is, i have freaking absurd erections from proviron. If i dont take the proviron, next day its a dud. That just seems odd to me. Im starting to think that the combo of proviron and occasional adex might have crushed my estro, rather than it being high. I will receive the results tomorrow morning, will update when i get them.

Ok, so part of the blood work came back. 1. CBC was fine 2. E2 16.4 pg/ml ref(13-58 3.FSH ref .7-11.1 Free test 26 Pg/ml ref 3.85-34 LH .15 ref 2.0-12.4 Prolactin 11.2 ng/ml ref up to 20 Still waiting on DHT, total test, SHBG So clearly i am shut down by the LH and FSH numbers which is to be expected of course. Free test doesn't really mean much without seeing total and shbg. The thing that stands out to me is estrogen, its on very low side of the scale imo, but i could be misinterpreting. Looks like i crashed my E2 boys, any thoughts?

Thinking back, i was fine about 2 weeks ago. Erections were extremely strong. I am not panicking but rather curious as to what may have caused this in such short a time.

Thanks for all your help. I am in total agreement that is a circulation problem. I will dig up the blood test for you. I will tell you tho, my biggest concern is the timing.
I vividly remember that about 3 weeks ago i had an erection from proviron that you could break bricks with, it was the strongest ive ever had in my life. No morning wood, but i had no problems the rest of the day. Probably because i was on proviron. I am starting to think i have something called a "venous leak." Any thoughts on that?
