My Libido is Gone and Erections are Weak
First of all, I want to thank you guys in advance for any help you can provide in this tough time.
For those of you who are not aware, propecia is a drug with some serious side effects. Check out the propecia help website if you want to hear more stories, or if your first instinct is to call these problems "psychological."
Ok, my situation is this. I took the drug for 10 years. I'm 32 years old. When quitting this drug cold turkey, it was almost like a hormonal shock or something. My urine flow was a trickle, morning erections were gone, spontaneous erections were gone, semen was watery, and libido was dead. The only way to get a boner was through manual stimulation and it was very weak, and went away quickly. Even with viagra I could not have sex. I was, however, able to have oral sex from time to time. After ejaculating, it took another 2 days or so before I could get another erection. It was like the entire sexual portion of my body was fatigued to the point of exhaustion.
It has been 6 months now. Things have gotten MUCH better. Semen is still watery and libido is basically still dead, but morning erections and spontaneous erections are back. I don't need 2 days off anymore. Oral sex is starting to feel good. I still don't have much sensitivity in the head of my penis, though. Best of all, with viagra, I am able to have sex. The bad part is, I can't feel it much. And I don't have the libido to enjoy it much. So I can bring my girlfriend to orgasm, but can't finish myself. She has to finish me off orally.
My quesition is this: What to do now? Obviously there has been some slow progress from my body on its own. I tried a thing called the broccoli treatment, which increased the strength and frequency of my urination. But how do I get my libido and erection strength all the way back? I want to get over the hump. I've heard about a combination of sustain and diesel test, but I don't know anything about this. Is it effective? Any side effects? Where do I get it? Or are there other better products? Anyone think I should just let my body readjust naturally? Thank you so much for any responses. I'm just trying to get back to having a normal sex life, with a normal sex drive. Thanks.

I did go to a urologist. He admittedly doesn't know a ton about the effects of long-term use of propecia on the body. He is basically of the mind that time will continue to be the cure, as my hormones normalize. He believes that eventually all of the drug (and the drug's effect) will be gone from my body. I tend to agree...I just don't know how long it will take. It's strange to have no sex drive. It's frustrating to look at a beautiful naked woman and have no desire to do anything.

also have you had a prostate exam? granted the propecia should shrink it if there was a problem but side effects are impotence. like the doc said probably will go away because they are slowly starting to now, so just head to GNC and get their yohimbine in the herb section. pop 2 of those and you'll have an erection for a long long time

you could try IDS Post Cycle Tabs... they had me getting erections and libido more than my teenage libido.

Fenugreek / Maca / Blue UP / Coq Diesel
I had a nasty 'dry spell', about 1 week of Coq Diesel + Blue UP had me completely turned around. In fact, I had to wear blinders like a horse for about a week after my last dose to keep my mind on the task at hand.

Guys, i REALLY appreciate all the advice. I'm so new to all these supplements, though. Is it possible to include links to where to purchase these specific things? If not, I understand. Thanks.

having no libido really sucks. sustain should do the trick i am currently on it right now and at day 5 i feel like I'm 18 again. i've heard great things about Diesel test hardcore also. You might try stacking that with the sustain. The dthc can be found here:http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/g...-120-tabs.html

We sell the fenugreek also, and weíve had mixed reports about its effects on libido. I honestly donít think itís the best option.
Sustain Alpha is the perfect product for libido. Iíve never seen a customer with low libido not notice tremendous improvements from this product.

Donít get me wrong, I still think its great stuff for a lot of purposes. [Itís the main ingredient in our Phyto-Test]

Cheap I would do Alpha Drive XL stacked with Fenugreek (both on sale on nutraplanet, $20 together). This gave me insane libido, I eyed up everything with a heart-beat. 1 Draw-back, when you get off, libido gone, it seems to be a temporary fix for me :-(
Otherwise Get Diesel
Or Sustain Alpha like PP says, but I have not used that personally, getting good reports though!

Try Blue Gene, and I hate to say it, a good tribulus, like San Endotest or Deisel Test EDITeisel Test is out of stock.. WAIT! Sunami just came out, it's cheap too!
Blue Gene makes for tungsten stiffees, and Endotest boosts libido really well, as I'd bet Sunami would (though it has little feedback yet).

Sustain Alpha, not fenugreek.
Toco-8 has a synergistic effect with Sustain Alpha by increasing the testes ability to create Testosterone. Toco-8 a good long-term hormonal support supplement that will help address the root of the problem, rather than just a temporary fix.
ZMA would also be a good choice.

The new Diesel Test Hardcore will be at Nutraplanet next wed/Thurs. It has been reformulated with an increased potency. This can be stacked with Sunami for the best test boosting combo out there. The Deisel Test Hardcore user feedback speaks for itself, as the best around. I personally think it is unmatched for a herbal testosterone booster, I have used it a few times and had nothing but good to say about it. Do yourself and your girl a favor and check it out!

the only things I can vouch for that gave me unbearable drive was yohimbine and IGF-2.....the latter giving morning woods that would raise a tent....

i would goto the doc and get blood work, check all your hormone levels
refractory times between erections have something to do with prolactin,
P5P, Chaste Berry, and L dopa with this you can also try
Forza T (its ZMA and 6oxo) or instead of forza T you can get them seperatly (prolly cheaper this way.)
and you can use Primal Male as well. with the above stack
and you can add a little DHEA if you want.( i wouldnt)

Ginkgo and ALCAR are cheap libido/hardness boosters that work great for me in that department even though that was not the reason I used them. Maca is also a good choice, but I think Ginkgo and ALCAR work better for me in that respect.
I think Yohimbine works ok, but only in combination with other things like iicarin and other PDE5 inhibitors.
I hear a lot about Rhodiola Rosea helping with the mental aspect of things too.
Though they help, you don't always have to shell out for expensive products to get results.

There was once this neat little supplement that was made by Palo Alto Labs. It rhymed with schmaspire36. Do some searching around and when you figure out what I'm talking about, then get your hands on some, you'll thank me.
