Hi doctor,

I am a 30 year old male. I am suffering from low sex drive. I usually get the early ejection, but will have two or three sessions of sex in a single night. Nowadays, it takes at least 12 hours for next erection. I feel low energy level throughout the day. Most of the time, I feel myself in a bad mood. I do not have masculine body. I got my thyroid and testosterone test done. My TSH is 4.87, free testosterone is 9.69 and total testosterone is 278.69. Please advise me some treatment. I am on Vasograin for migraine.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen the reports attached by you (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • Though your total testosterone is 278, I feel it is little on the lower side. Actually, testosterone level of less than 300 is considered less.
  • Also, I think one time sex in the night is sufficient. Two or three times per night is bad for health and not advisable.
  • You should get the below tests to look the cause of low testosterone.
  1. Serum testosterone at 9 AM in the morning to reconfirm the values.
  2. Serum FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and serum LH (luteinizing hormone) at 8 AM in the morning.
  • You should stop smoking and alcohol if any. Get the above tests done and if required we will start on testosterone injections, but not now.
