Best way to increase erection hardness?
So here's my story, about a year ago I decided to take the god-awful drug propecia due to very subtle hair loss within the hairline area. I took the drug for a very short amount of time, but basically it was enough to destroy my libido and give me a case of ED that lasted months. I ended up at this forum since a lot of people seem to be pros on hormone problems and these sort of issues, I used dermacrine sustain/sustain alpha and after about 3 or 4 months worth of using that product I seemed to have regained a good amount of what I had been lacking, but I think there is more that needs to be done. These sort of problems have been destroying me emotionally, I am having all sorts of intimacy problems and fear of getting close to girls, and the fear of failure has been killing my game, as well as performance. It truly is depressing as I'm sure anyone here can understand that female companionship with a compatible partner is something that can really brighten up life in aspects beyond sexual interaction.
About a month or so ago I met an amazing girl, she was very obviously into me and when I met up with her she was wearing a skirt with boots (this was the only time I have ever seen her wear anything that shows her legs) and she had her hair dyed, and I am almost positive that she did all this for me, for that one night. She also had a tongue piercing in that night which has also not made an appearance since then. She had every obvious sign of being attracted to me and was sending me all the right signals, and to be honest it kind of blew my mind. She was looking gorgeous and had the warmest smile on her face, and it felt amazing that this was there for me. So we were standing alone on the street just me and her and she was up close and had her arms around me, I was also kind of drunk and this was the perfect chance to start making out with her. I just couldn't go for it though, because I was so goddamn nervous that I wouldn't be able to get it up all the way, and like a 14 year old boy I couldn't even make it to first base. This girl had such a ridiculous amount of things in common with me, and I really tend to not find that in most of the girls I meet, it was as if god sent her from the heavens to me to be my vessel. There was obvious chemistry between us two, and I really could have seen things going somewhere if I had sealed the deal that night. I could have seen her as being the person to give me a positive outlook on life and pull me out of this damn depression I've been in for so long. If I could live that night again, I probably would have gone for it even if I couldn't get it up all the way, just to gain that level of intimacy with her. After I blew it on that night with her, she seriously won't even acknowledge me or even be involved in conversing with me even if I just say hi, for all I know she's probably boned another dude since that night. I guess indecision is one of the worst traits you can show a girl. I've been suffering with this failure for basically every day since that fateful night, and it seeps into my subconscious and makes me feel bitter and I can't help it. I think it causes me to have a negative attitude and sometimes even causes me to treat those around me poorly.
Thankfully I'm at a point where I can enjoy masturbating and looking at porn again, although I'm thinking I'm going to have to fully give up porn to develop my own mental intimacy capabilities, and cut down on the masturbation as much as possible. Porn just can't compare to actually having someone, and for the most part it's just plain dirty and involves people I generally wouldn't respect if I actually met in real life. Getting off on some dirty smut just feels kinda pathetic after a while.
I'm sorry about the ridiculous amount of personal detail I've put in this post, it's just been killing me, and I really don't feel like I can talk about this with anyone . I feel a bit better having have written it down actually. It really sucks to be feeling like this, and I've recently kind of made friends with a 26 year old fat dude who still lives with his family who has the habit of basically giving me vicodins for free, and it gets harder to refuse him when I'm feeling this low.
I am also starting to fear the fact that my member might be shrinking, since I feel that the rare times I get a really stiff morning erection, it actually hurts a little bit.
So basically I am pretty desperate, help me out guys, I don't want this **** to ruin my life anymore. I am looking for ways to increase libido but more importantly hardness. I think I'm going to give sustain alpha another cycle along with the rest of the "testosterone recovery stack". I am also going to give coconut oil a try, and I've already got some diesel test pills laying around.
I am thinking of also maybe trying out citruline malate since people say it helps with blood flow. I am also gonna try to sleep much better and eat breakfast more often. I'd like to quit smoking, but it's hard to quit, especially if you're feeling as bitter as I am.
So please help me out and give me some sort of suggestions, I need my libido, erections, and sexual performance to be at a point that is beyond doubt and I can be ready to go whenever and wherever. I don't want a temporary fix, I want a permanent solution so I can never worry about this sort of thing for as long as I am young! It hurts especially more coupled with the fact that I'm only 20.

Testofen and Icariin would be a good stack to try along with 25mg of zinc.M.Ed. Ex Phys

I take it you didn't read my whole post, in all honesty I can't really blame you for that.

Get with hot girls and quit fatties. Amazing effect on the dong.

All in due time, all in due time. Next thing you know, you're waking up and desperately trying to get the F**k out of some strange bedroom unnoticed.

Something similar happened to me last year courtesy of a PH cycle and not using proper PCT. I found that Fenugeek really helps me and it is very cheap as well. Two tabs in the morning and two in the evening. One week later I am horny as hell and this also seems to increase the length of my penis (flacid) as well as making my erections harder.
You could also try viagra, cialis, etc. just to see if you can maintain an erection for a long period of time. I've taken both and find viagra stronger (but the effects don't last as long) and I only have to think about sex and I'm rock solid.

If you had trouble to get it all up even when drunk, I assume the problem is pretty severe... I have used IGF-2 before, and it really helped.
Okay, I don't know if this is a good idea, please correct me if I am wrong, but a low dose of test e for 12 weeks, followed by proper PCT could make your libido back on track, help with self esteem, and it might just bounce back with a good PCT.
Just a thought though..

Powerfull is something I would consider, perhaps after my run of the testosterone recovery stack I'm still not satisfied I may give it a shot.

have you tried something like aspire or rise2?
05-13-2008, 02:43 PM
Also keep in mind that I'm not looking for a temporary fix, I need to permanently fix myself.
05-13-2008, 02:47 PM
understood - however if a temporary fix doesn't do it in the long run, and your test is fine and libido/energy are up then it could be other factors or diesease related.

This here show me you have a libido and you can get an erection, which means you do not need TRT or HCG. Granted your libido may be lower than you like and you may not get as hard as you like. You will have to try different things to find what works for you. Paravol works wonders for some did not do much for me. I find that taking 6 to 9grms of maca a day helps to improve my libdio. Aspire worked great for the hardness part but it is discontinued. I have'nt tried rize2 yet, but I noticed Powerfull gave me harder erections. Good luck.

Someone actually sent me a PM saying that it could be psychological, honestly I don't think thats all that impossible, I'm thinking I just need some satisfying sexual experiences perhaps with the aid of aspire lite and I can get my mind back on track, I will have to try this, but knowing what day I'm going to have sex and what day I'm not may not be the easiest task.

try cutting all alcohol,
being drunk tends to cause floppiness for a lot of guys.

A good suggestion!
Honestly...I would say stacking IGF-2 and ActiVate Xtreme or Trib Test Extreme would be pretty damn effective. Just my two cents!

For some reason DTH did not do a lot for me in the libido dept. It did however give me harder erections at night. So far Maca is the best for me but I may take the suggestion and add long jack to see how that works. My libidio is pretty good but not what it used to be. Always looking to improve it.

Whew! I kind of got the feeling there was a misunderstanding going on.
I try to stay away from photo processing chemicals, although doing lines of printer toner and a shot or two of xerox copier fluid did wonders for my receding hairline.
I've yet to try Coq Diesel, but will probably give it a go sometime.

I've heard some negative things about yohimbe, but then again I'm not very educated on that substance. I do understand that it is a stimulant and I wonder what effects it might have on such things as adrenal fatigue.
From what I can gather sexual function is divided into the following areas:
1. Psychological and mental state
2. Hormone and biochemical levels/receptor sensitivity
3. Blood flow and cardiovascular health
4. Nerve cell health
I'm pretty sure all of those have to be working together for healthy sexual function.
I think the least important is the nerve cell health, because that's pretty much a given and it either works or it doesn't and I think that there needs to be some sort of physical trauma for that to be damaged. Correct me if I'm wrong though, and if there is some sort of supplement that can enhance nerve sensitivity it might be worth a shot, but all I can really think of are basic things like B vitamins, and multi-vitamin effects on libido are marginal at best.
Hormonal levels can be corrected with stuff like PCT, and in some cases only a good doctor like Crisler can help with that. I'm going to continue doing what I can to optimize the hormonal levels, by lifting weights and taking supplements, if I feel that I've run out of options I may opt to go see dr. crisler or a highly accredited urologist.
For cardiovascular health I wonder if it would be good to take supplements which increase nitric oxide and red blood cell levels. I wonder if something like citruline malate or vaso-flow might help. Of course I figure a good cardio exercise would help with this too, not to mention quitting cigarettes. I'd like to state that I am a skinny guy and I've always been the type of guy that has to get poked by a needle more than one time to draw blood because nothing gets drawn up into the syringe, this has been true since before I ever used propecia.
I really like the testosterone recovery stack from primordial performance, but it's literally been 13 days since I've ordered it off of them, and the tracking code tells me that they have yet to even ship it, I don't understand why their service is being crappy like this all of a sudden.

I am really liking Stoked! by Anabolic Innovations. Marked improvement in libido/erections, and the ingredients are very healthy (resveratol).

I think you just need some "hands experience", just pick up some drunk chicks from a club and practice on till your ready to expand your game, don't worry about the drunk chicks dont worry they wont remember anything =)

It sounds all psychological to me; you took a big mental hit when the big date went pear shaped, but you're still able to blow a wad with pr0n. So you should be able to take some consolation that physically everything is still in working order.
How to get over the mental issue though. Lack of confidence is something that I reckon every guy goes through at some point and there's no easy way through it. What seems to happen is that at some point something will click in your brain and you'll say "what an idiot I've been, that's what I've been doing wrong" and it will all gloriously fall into place. What causes that mental flick of the switch though is anybody's guess. Maybe one day you'll see a woman that will stir your hormones so much it would take a grenade to stop you, maybe one day you'll just decide to stop beating yourself up and that it's better to try and fail than to never try at all.
What you definitely need to do though is to stop putting pressure on yourself. Remove sex from social situations: if you go out, then go out to be with friends and have a good time, not to try and hook up. If a woman gives you positive attention then just enjoy the feeling that someone is attracted to you. Forget about what might happen if you have to perform because you're not even going to be in that situation so there's nothing to worry about.
Find positives in other areas of your life: perhaps you've been spending quality time with friends, maybe your training is going really well, or a project you've been doing came out well.
Once you start feeling happier in yourself then the chances of that mental switch flicking over greatly increase and you'll wonder why it ever too so long.
