Marijuana, Masturbation and its effects on Sexual Hormones

Hi some guys may know about my problems at the moment, been struggling with strange symptoms: Aching cysts on testicles (inflammation), bad erection quality, low sex drive, spots on upper thighs . . Etc

This article seems to describe what I have but I think it’s a load of rubbish to sell a certain supplement but there may still be truth in it …

What do you guys think?

Quote:
First and foremost, you are suffering from symptoms of sexual exhaustion caused by excessive masturbation for so many years. But you have exacerbated this problem by smoking marijuana, which can be quite destructive to sexual function.

To understand what causes sexual dysfunction, you need to understand how the body operates during normal sexual activity. The adrenal glands and sex organs produce androgen hormones which stimulate sexual function in men and are the precursor to the female hormone estrogen. The hypothalamus releases the neurohormone dopamine which results in sexual arousal. When you feel sexually aroused, the brain releases the neurotransmitter acetylcholine into the bloodstream in the sex organs. Then acetylcholine causes the endothelium in the blood vessels and in the spongy penis chambers to produce an enzyme called nitric oxide synthase that helps to produce the gas nitric oxide. This is derived most commonly from the amino acid arginine or, alternatively, from nitrogen compounds in foods. Nitric oxide then triggers the release of yet another enzyme-induced neurotransmitter, cGMP. At the command of cGMP, the blood vessels relax, permitting increased blood inflow to the penis. As the chambers of the penis engorge, the sudden surge of blood into those chambers exerts pressure on the veins. Now inflow is greater than outflow, and the penis remains erect so long as there is a continuous production of cGMP mediated by nitric oxide. A very similar sequence is involved in lubrication and vaginal and clitoral engorgement in women. As sexual activity intensifies, the neurotransmitter GABA is released, increasing dopamine levels and ultimately igniting a euphoric feeling and increasing sensations during orgasm.

At the end of sexual activity, cGMP is disabled by the enzyme PDE5, and nitric oxide production decreases, causing the penis to return to it’s flaccid state or female sex organs to return to normal. The anti-inflammatory hormone prostaglandin E-1 is released to relax tissue and muscle fiber and calm the body after sex. The pituitary gland releases the hormone and neurotransmitter oxytocin to induce a sense of sexual satisfaction after sex or orgasm. The pituitary gland also releases the hormone prolactin to repress the effect of dopamine, thus reducing sexual arousal by decreasing the levels of estrogen in women and testosterone in men. The brain also releases the neurotransmitter serotonin to modulate sexual desire.

All of these processes, however, break down when you engage in excessive masturbation. Excessive masturbation leads to overproduction of androgen hormones, causing adrenal and sex organ fatigue, and excess release of dopamine to maintain prolonged sexual arousal. Since dopamine is the precursor to the stress hormone epinephrine (adrenaline), excess dopamine results in the adrenal glands overproducing epinephrine and putting the body in a prolonged state of fight-or-flight stress. At the same time, norepinephrine is synthesized from dopamine and released from the adrenal medulla into the blood as a hormone, along with the stress hormone cortisol. Epinephrine, norepinephrine and cortisol fuel the fight-or-flight response, directly increasing heart rate, triggering the release of glucose from energy stores, and increasing blood flow to skeletal muscle. All of this has a severely taxing effect on the body.

The hormone prostaglandin E-2, which serves an important function in sexual arousal, is also overproduced and has an inflammatory effect on the body, damaging tissues, nerves and joints, weakening immunity, causing muscular and nervous pain, and promoting infection, inflammation, and even cancer. Chronic elevation of epinephrine and prostaglandin E2 results in severe damage to brain cells and parasympathetic nerves in the liver, lungs, adrenal glands, heart, blood vessels, digestive system, pancreas, gallbladder, ovaries, uterus, cervix, testicles and prostate. As a result, you can experience a variety of symptoms, including depression, anxiety, bodily pains, persistent sexual arousal and sexual dysfunction such as impotence and premature ejaculation in men and a lack of sexual stimulation in women.

All of this over-activity and stress causes the pituitary gland and testicles (ovaries in women) to become disabled for a few days or even months, leading to a long refraction time or a long-term sexual exhaustion and inflammation. First, you may feel your muscles and joints become very tight and rigid upon ejaculation. An extremely exhausted adrenal function can cause an extreme low level of DHEA and cortisol, resulting in fatigue and pains throughout the body, including the back. The pain becomes severe at about 2-4 hours after ejaculating due to the sudden drop of DHEA, testosterone and DHT. You may experience pains for a couple of days until your prolactin and cortisol levels are returned to their normal ranges.

Marijuana abuse in particular raises the level of the inflammatory hormone prostaglandin E-2 in the body which can induce inflammation in brain arteries, constricting blood flow to the brain. These narrowed arteries require high blood pressure to pump blood up to your brain. Prostaglandin E2 can also loosen the brain-blood barrier and then increase the drug’s penetration into the cerebrospinal fluid. All of this can result in hypertension, headaches, migraines, blurred version, gum inflammation, sleeping disorder, and ear ringing, in addition to brain disorders, body or joint pains and inflammation, liver and kidney inflammation, and disorders of the prostate, uterus, cervix, bladder, and urethra. Marijuana use can also cause brain hemorrhage, enlargement of brain cavities, and brain tissue death.

Marijuana chemicals are toxins, poisonous to healthy cells. Exposure to it’s chemicals can put your body in a state of “chemotherapy” that deadens your nerves, leading to sexual exhaustion. The brain’s acetylcholine and parasympathetic nervous functions are responsible for sustaining an erection during sex. The chemicals in marijuana gradually take over acetylcholine in the brain and nervous system, causing the brain and autonomonic nervous functions to become disordered. The neurotransmitter nitric oxide and dilator cGMP become suppressed, leading to a failure to achieve an erection or orgasm.

Once marijuana’s chemicals take over the inter-neurons or synapses, it is very difficult to flush it from the brain and nervous system. After prolonged use, this scale of nervous system destruction can potentially lead to permanent impotence. In addition, a man may fail to achieve orgasm due to the acetylcholine deficiency in the sympathetic ganglions and adrenal medulla. It is here where acetylcholine helps link the sympathetic nervous functions for the release of norepinephrine and epinephrine that triggers orgasmic contraction in the pelvic contractive fibers. Seminal production and testicular functions will gradually shut down. Then, ejaculation becomes less and less, and finally dries up. At that point, it will be too late for a man to revive his sexual life.

If you have inflammatory pains, disease or asthma, you must stop pot smoking immediately. In the meantime, Power E or Power V with DeToxiA can help you treat the side effects of marijuana abuse, leading to restored health and sexual function. It takes 3-7 days for these power formulas to correct the brain and nervous functions for patients using legal medications, such as blood-pressure, heart, cholesterol, diabetes, birth control, and anti-depression drugs. However, it will take 2 or 3 months for these formulas to cleanse the liver, inter-neurons and synapses for those using marijuana.

In order to reverse the ill-effects of excessive masturbation, stop sexual activity for a few weeks. Let your body rest and replenish. Then you can come back to it with a lower frequency. A healthy habit is to ejaculate a total of three to four times a week.

ViaPal-HGH-P, ArginOx and fish oil (1000 mg each meal) will help you gradually rejuvenate your neuro-endocrine function and boost your prostaglandin E-1/E-3, Oxytocin and Nitric Oxide production for erection and orgasm. American ginseng and maca help to rejuvenate your entire body. Horny goat weed and yohimbe will help increase flood flow and nutrient absorption for a harder erection and better ejaculation control. Damiana and saw palmetto will heal your prostate, which is responsible for producing and releasing semen and which is most likely overworked with your excessive sexual activity or masturbation.

Total bullshit and I’d bet the ranch the question was made up.

Please beware of the dreaded Doctor Lin. He is a very dangerous man.


Running a Massive Co-Front.

Dr. Lin is a WHACKJOB and a QUACK. There are many threads on this board about him.

His opinions and “threatments” are worthless.

Do not look to him for answers for any of your problems. And certainly don’t send him any money.

NOW - have you had your hormone levels (free and total testosterone) and thyroid functioning tested? I would talk to a doctor about your problems. I am disturbed about your testicles getting inflamed. YOU NEED TO SEE A DOCTOR>

You mention libido problems and erection problems. Those are not the only symptoms of low testosterone. Do you have any of the others? Here is a “pre-screening” questionaire that doctors give, which will give you an indication of the other symptoms:

http://www.seekwellness.com/andropa…am_evaluate.htm

1. Do you have a decrease in libido (sex drive)?
2. Do you have a lack of energy?
3. Do you have a decrease in strength and/or endurance?
4. Have you lost height?
5. Have you noticed a decreased “enjoyment of life”
6. Are you sad and/or grumpy?
7. Are your erections less strong?
8. Have you noticed a recent deterioration in your ability to play sports?
9. Are you falling asleep after dinner?
10. Has there been a recent deterioration in your work performance?

If you answer a certain # of the questions “Yes” then it is worth getting tested to see if this is your problem.

(ONLY A DOCTOR CAN SAY FOR SURE — YOU NEED TO SEE A DOCTOR ANY WAY FOR THE INFLAMED TESTICLES)

Lin is not a physician. His doctorate is in civil engineering. See: Exposing Dr. Lin

Thanks guys your all so helpful!!

Yeah I have had my testosterone levels checked a year ago when my problems were in a similar condition to now and he said they were normal!? I am very disturbed and really don’t know what the problem is! It must be smoking weed that’s doing it I don’t see what else it could be . . I plan on going away for a while and detoxing getting away from the retarded hippy scum I live with …

It is a total mystery and I just want my normal life back.. I used to have rock hard erections that lasted for ages and be great in bed and have morning wood every day . .

My mood has always been more anxious than it should be which is blatantly the weed, I just don’t see why after so many years of it not effecting me suddenly it is now!

I really need help! I’m seeing a urologist soon..

P.S

I don’t smoke pure weed spliffs but with tobacco and I drink and smoke tobacco on it’s own so there are other factors but I don’t see them as a real big problem as I am a mild smoker and drinker.. Had my Carbon Monoxide levels checked and they said I was a light smoker possibly just second hand smoker!! I smoked weed tobacco spliffs every day for 11 years!! Weird eh?

Stop the smoking altogether, it sucks. I was on marijuana for a very long time and when I finally stopped - my life and health improved ten-fold.

Get some shiitake mushrooms and dilute some apple cider vinegar in water 3 times a day to eliminate the risk of this problem being caused by allergies. It probably isn’t, but just to be safe.

Keep us posted.


Time to measure girth soon... previously 4.5", been targeting girth for months!

That questionaire looks like all the depression questionaire I’ve done over the years.

DD84 have you considered that this problem may be caused by stress, anxiety and possibly depression?


I'm a big fan of 50 Cent, or as we call him in Zimbabwe, four hundred million dollars.

No I don't think deppression

Although it may seem like it could be depression I really doubt it I am not that bad more stressed and anxious but I have never had my sexual performance effected by anything before I don’t seem to be that kind of person until now!! :-(

Allergies? What allergies? Could be as simple as that?

Quit thinking about it .

Don’t dwell on failure.

Think positively.

Just let it happen .

The biggest cause of impotence is mental.

The only time when had problems were thinking about or worrying about performance anxiety.

I wish it was totally in my mind, I agree a lot could be but I don’t have morning wood, which means it has some physical causes…

yeap it’s bullshit.

Actually marijuana makes me have sex, I get a boner easily when I’m high, well man it has some problems too, you produce less sperm; it depends you should tell us how many joints you smoke per day.


Your sucess is directly proportional to how bad you want something.
