    6 month DHEA cycle - No morning wood/libido for 8 months now


    Everyone,

    I ran a DHEA 50 mg & Pregnenolone 10 mg cycle for 6 months without PCT. It raised my estrogen a bit but it has gone back down to normal and my testosterone levels are high normal however my SHBG is also quite high. I do not know what my levels were before the cycle. Now I have a noticeable decrease in libido and NO morning wood for the past 8-9 months!! WTF is going on?? This isn't even a potent PH

    Dude I don't usually get morning wood but my libido is always up. Try some clomid it should help.

    Can a weaker prohormone such as DHEA - the stuff literally sold in CVS - cause any permanent hormonal imbalances?? I used to get morning wood everyday before taking the stuff. What does clomid do? Will it mess up my hormones further?

    I have never seen anything that relates morning wood to hormonal imbalances. Full bladder pressing on prostate equals morning wood, right?

    well certainly as you age you have lower test and morning erections are more rare but I am 23 and I used to get them all the time especially after doing squats and what not. Now I am not as horny and have trouble maintaining erections. I don't get it - shouldn't the body recover from using DHEA?

    Man, you must loved the sh!t out of some squats to pop a wood afterwards. D@mn, I like doing the, but not quite that much!

    Just kidding, man. Honestly, there's so many things it could be. DHEA easily converts to estrogen. Without bloodwork it's all guesstimates. However, try an OTC AI, like erase, dosed low and see if that helps my friend. That works for me when I get symptoms of high estrogen--on TRT.

    You'll be back to squatting boners in no time my friend!

    DHEA standalone isn't suppressive but it does convert to mostly estro when males take it. Himts your loq libido. Try some DAA and erase pro. Will help. And IMO you would be better off running creatine for six months than DHEA

    Thanks for the responses guys. F*** DHEA and the pieces of s*** that kept it on the shelves.. it serves no purpose but for older people who MAY need it and therefore should simply get a SCRIPT from their doctor if that's what they need. I should have inquired more about what dhea really was but seriously, it's not necessary to have OTC IMO.

    First why boost test at 23?
    Second why dhea?
    Third. Why dhea?
    Forth do you not do a least a bit of research before adding a Supp to your stack ?

    You should only.be running creatine and protein to be honest at your age. Daa is great but I think really works best with guys over 30 .

    Anyway good look but I think you.need a good booster for about 6 weeks to get fixed again.

    Yes, definitely not the fault of the moron who took a hormonal for 6 months straight and didn't do any research on it. Let's have government regulate all supplements to protect dumbasses like you from hurting themselves.

    I don't this is a DHEA problem ... OP says his test is actually HIGH and his estro is back to normal. So this isn't hormonal.

    There's lot's of other reasons that cause ED besides hormonal. The fact he used DHEA is probably just a coincidence.

    Thank you Honda- I do believe you are correct - this experience through me for a loop. I know for a fact that I could never run gear not that I ever wanted to in the first place.
