I suffer from minor ED and have a possible thrombosed vein?

I suffer from minor ED and have a possible thrombosed vein?

Hello guys,

I just got back from an appointment with a hematologist after worrying about potential hemochromatosis for close to a year now. It was confirmed that I do NOT have hemochromatosis.

I am of course happy to be healthy, but on the other hand, a part of me was hoping I had HH because that would cure my ED problems since it would be treatable.

So, now I need to find another way to treat my minor (but a major issue for me) ED. Quickly summarized:

- Rarely morning wood. Perhaps 4-8 times a month. That is weekends when I can sleep until I wake up naturally, and often I do have to stimulate myself mentally or physically to get wood. That is, I usually don`t wake up with wood. Usually a chubby:)

- Not able to achieve a 100% erection, either on my own or with girls. I usually achieve 90% and can probably at best deliver a 95% erection once in a while. A 100% erection has not happened in a LONG time. Perhaps this is a subjective issue? Perhaps what I believe is 95% is actually 100%? :) I don`t think so though.

- My sex drive is not very high either, but I am confident that it is very positively correlated with my EQ. I have experienced periods lately where I have had frequent erections throughout the day and sexual thoughts, but when these periods end, my sex drive seems to slow down as well. I guess the question is which is affecting either?

I used Cialis in the holidays and was not able to achieve a 100% erection using this. It has since come to my attention that Cialis needs to build up in the system to become effective. At the end of the holidays, I did see some improvement though, but after I got back into normal life my EQ has mostly diminished.

I do probably not have very high testosterone levels, but they are within the range. I eat healthy and generally don`t have any issues.

I am consider ordering a load of Cialis and start using low dosages of this daily. Will also consider ordering other supplements including Dino`s Fountain of Youth.

Regarding PE, I currently have been waterpumping. A very conservative routine in the holidays. A little more intense in 2010.

Taking time off PE does not seem to help at all. Actually, a mild routine seems to keep my penis functioning.

Another thing that has been on my mind is the fact that I have some hard veins right behind my penis head that always comes to the surface after performing girth work. Either pumping or clamping. Not so much with regular jelqing. After pumping I try to massage them away. They do get a little smaller, but does not disappear.

They are not visible and I can`t feel them very much with a normal erection though.

I checked my history and see that I have a thread about this already: I may have a thrombosed vein, can I still do my girth routine?

Since I wrote this, I have been away from PE for at least a year continuously and even more combined. It is still there though and does not go away.

Is there any causality between these veins and my ED issues?

Thanks very much in advance,

Renholder

I would say no connection between the two.

If you want to fix the vein I recommend heat, massage (lots), aspirin……repeat.

Another thing I should add is that my sex life has been not much to speak of the recent year.

I have been with a few girls and it was fun, but not being able to have great erections have made me less reluctant to pursue any sexual encounters.

It`s not that I can`t get girls either, since that usually is not a problem. I simply don`t have that desire when I know I will not perform as I should.

I think I will try to hook up with a girl as soon as possible and just see what happens. Ideally, getting a steady partner so that I can see if frequent sex will help me.

It may be a negative circle that I need to end myself by simply getting started.

You don’t make clear whether or not you had a hormonal panel done to determine what your testosterone numbers are. This could be important, if only to eliminate low T. as a problem.

Cialis is a very iffy drug in spite of all the TV hype you may see. For some men it does not kick in for many hours and when it does it can be unreliable for sex unless dosed more frequently than recommended. Then you get into “stacking,” which isn’t good either.

I suggest you see a urologist with good training in ED and get an evaluation from him.

I`ve had a hormonal panel done and my family doctor said it was completely fine. It is within the range, but closer to the bottom range than the top of the range. I compared it with a friend of mine with high sex drive and excellent EQ and we were pretty much similar.

Since I had some doubt about this due to a PT of mine who said I would qualify for HRT in the USA, I have got a second and third opinion with this and every one says that my levels are completely normal.

In other words, I am in no way a testosterone bomb, but my levels are not so low that they should prevent me from having excellent EQ and a good sexdrive. At least from my understanding.

I forgot to mention that my age is 25 years.

I will see if I can get to an urologist, but I suspect that I will need to wait for a long time as with the hematologist due to a very small private sector in healthcare here in Norway.

It may be worth the wait to you. And, when you get an appointment, take a copy of your hormonal panel with you. Many doctors look for VERY LOW numbers before they will approve TRT therapy. Perhaps your numbers are in a decent range, but let him have a look.

Make a list (and copy it) of all your ED symptoms. Give one to him and go down the list with him during the in-take. Docs appreciate this as it gives them keys on which to focus during the exam.

Meanwhile, try another of the PDE5 drugs like Viagra or Levitra. Give yourself a “solo” run first, so you know what to expect. When sex comes along, you’ll be more prepared, and ready. :)

Thank you, avocet.

I`ll see if I can find an urologist in my area. Do they have any special type of equipment or tests they use to diagnose my unit?

One other variable is that I have been stressed and slept too little lately, but earlier I have not seen a meaningful correlation between the two. Let me explain:

I used to be very stressed, slept little and was often exhausted when I worked as a carpenter. I have not had excellent EQ for a few years, so I always reasoned that it was my work situation that was causing it. It made sense.

But then in late 2008, I became a full time student with very low stress levels and I slept for 8-10 hours daily for months. At this period, my EQ and lack of morning erections was as bad as ever. This was also the period where I literally felt exhausted all the time (hence my suspicions of hemochromatosis or low T).

Could it be possible that this was accumulated fatigue from my previous work and sleeping too little for years?

I`m not convinced.

Anyways, it continued like this until August/September when I got back into carpentry. Since then, I`ve had periods of good EQ (never excellent, but decent) and good sexdrive. These periods, I also was more stressed and underslept compared to when I was a student.

I will however do my very best now to get the sleep that I need so that I can be sure it is not further depressing my EQ among other things.

And just so it is mentioned, I am far from depressed and actually very happy about life, except for this issue.

Fuck.

I have not had a real erection for days and have close to zero sex drive. I have even turned down two girls lately because of this, so it is starting to become a serious problem for me.

I don`t think it is low testosterone either. My balls are not huge, but not very small either. I am able to grow a beard even though it takes time, voice is normal or even deep and I feel aggressive at times.

I`m not really sure how to find out what my issue is since the doctors are clueless, but I am looking to get a second opinion in the private sector.

I have heard that amalgam can be a cause for poisoning in the body. Any truth to this or is it just a conspiracy theory? I have two fillings.

You would do well to get rid of the amalgam. It contains lead, and possibly causes decay in the other teeth. I had all that removed years ago and felt better for it afterwoods


Don't be a lurker left out in the cold. :lurk: Join the happy band of donors!

Psst! The link is at the bottom of the page :bigwink:

I`ll do it as soon as I can afford it.

What did you notice?

I`m really confused now.

Norwegian doctors says I`m fine, but an expert from Iron Overload Ass. in USA says I have iron overload and needs treatment. My guess is that he`s rather biased towards it being iron overload, but he seems to very well informed referencing medical journals that backs his points, including a study suggesting that it is healthy for everyone to keep ferritin close to 50.

I think that I will perform phlebotomies (draw blood) on my own. Of course under the guidance of someone to watch me.

On a sidenote, EQ has been way better this week. Why? I have no clue. No changes in my life on way or the other. The cyclical nature of my symptoms is what is most mysterious to me, since I can go weeks feeling decent and adequate (not excellent) in sexual function, and then suddenly it all goes to hell.
