Are there any supplements to Increase Libido without increasing Testosterone
I tried to post this under the supplements section, but I was denied. Hopefully I can get a good answer here.
I am taking an SSRI antidepressant right now (zoloft), and it’s really killed my libido and lowered my erection quality. I’d like to take a supplement to boost my libido, but I am afraid of boosting testosterone levels. I have a receding hairline which I’ve been “preserving” with Rogaine Foam and Nizoral Shampoo (the Ketoconazole in the shampoo has been proven in studies to reduce DHT in the scalp) and I’ve actually had fairly good regrowth.
However, I am afraid of taking supplements such as Tribulus Terrestris or Tongkat Ali, because I am afraid that they will raise both my testosterone levels, as well as my DHT levels.
1) Are there any supplements out there that have worked to increase your libido and erection quality, but that work through a different mechanism than increasing testosterone?
Also, I have already ordered some Tongkat Ali due to large amounts of positive reviews I’ve seen. I am hoping that my Nizoral with Rogaine Foam Combo will be enough to counteract any possible DHT increases.or maybe Tongkat can somehow raise testosterone without increasing DHT?
Anybody take Tongkat without experiencing hair loss (obviously I mean only people who are genetically predisposed to hair loss)..
Complicated as hell question, and I know there are no definite answers.I’d just like some thoughts on it.
