Weak Erections, Lack of Sex Drive---Possible Causes

Weak Erections, Lack of Sex Drive---Possible Causes

Okay guys, time to be completely honest here. I am 20 years old. I have absolutely NO IDEA why this is even an issue at all with me. But my sex drive the past 6 months or so has been absolutely MINIMAL. No desire to jerk off, no desire to have sex, no desire to look at porn, etc. etc. etc.

I am almost positive that it has nothing to do with PE. Because when I stop PE for week or more nothing changes at all. I am really starting to think that maybe some of the bodybuilding supplements that I take may have an adverse affect. Here are the supplements that I am currently taking:

- multi-vitamin/mineral
- ester-C
- damiana
- milk thistle
- alpha-lipoic acid
- usnic acid (aka: sodium usinate)
- ephedrine (aka: ephedra, ma haung)
- creatine
- whey protein

I am going to be starting some 1-test and 4-AD this coming week, so that should stimulate my sex drive some, hopefully. I am really really thinking that it could be the ephedrine. I have been taking ephedrine now for about 5-6 years without a break, ever.

Any thoughts?

The cause? With you, there’s no tellin’! I’m pretty sure I know who you are elsewhere and I’ve seen some of your work-out/supp plans layed-out over the years, they’re are pretty intense (and expensive).

I’d nix the ephedrine and other stims, they do no real good in the long (or short) term. WTF are those other things for? The thistle and acids, in all likelyhood aren’t really doing shit for you so save your money. Most of this stuff has an effect that is measurable, but meaningless to any real benefits in the human body.

The hormonal idea? Well, you’ve been around for this one, seen the ad angle, heard the results…and you still want to risk THAT effect with your balls? Post-cycle, you know you are going to be right back where you are now, possibly a bit worse and the whole PH (I know, I know…Par & the literary sidekick say it’s a REAL steroid) will be to blame. You’re 20…1Test ain’t somethin’ you really want, more harm than good here.

Might want to take a look at your general work-out routine as well, you are a pretty ambitious fella when it comes to anything physical. As you know, the amount of gym work CAN have a negative effect on test levels and sex drive.

I’m not trying to be nasty with you on any of this, but you are the king of overdoing it sometimes. Take it easier, re-structure some of you work-outs and eat real food in place of supplements…it may be more effective than you think. You have awesome ambition and actually do put words into action from what I can tell, but too much can be too much. Sometimes all this supplementation tends to mask the effects for a while, but reality seeps in eventually, you’re there dude.

To my knowledge steroids and extreme body building result in less sex drive.

In the villages, the male sheep that is the leader of the herd usually is the largest of the sheeps, because its testicles are fixed at an early age, and therefore its muscles grow significantly more as the hormones can’t find a path to spark sexual energy.

One strange contradiction to this seems like Arnold Schwarzenegger. I don’t know how come he is known to be sexually so active while still hold such a huge muscley body.

You have been taking Ephedrine non stop since you were 14-15 years old?

I am not saying that is the reason, but it might be. Ephedrine has always decreased my libido and deflated me overall.

Thanks for the replies guys, appreciate it more than you know. :)

bigbutnottoo- Yes I have been taking ephedrine non-stop since I was 14-15. I got on it, loved it, it made me feel great. And now it’s pretty much impossible for me to stop. I am going to try and cut it out alone for a week or so and see if I notice any kind of changes in my erections or sex drive, etc.

You are 20 years old man,what the fuck do you even need those supplements for?If I were you,I’d quit all of them.They do ti much damage to your body,especially in the long run,and you may not even know it.

Ephedrine, I bet, is the problem.

The hormones will make it worse.

If you have messed with roids in the past (you didn’t say), that could also be the problem.


Horny Bastard

I’m hardly expert on this, but won’t WBH need to wean off the ephedine and perhaps whatever other supplements he wants to try stopping? I gave up caffeine when I was 30-something cause it interfered w/ my exercise routine (anything aerobic, and I’d quickly run out of steam). My doc suggested eliminating caffeine and see what happans before he checked out my heart, etc. Anyway, I had to wean off over 5 weeks to avoid headaches. BTW, the doc was right, it fixed my problem.

WBH, I do agree w/ the others that you should try dropping some or all of that stuff before you add anything to the mix. Then if you don’t go back to being a normal 20-something horn dog, go see a doc and get everything checked out. Even the most moral men, who avoid porn and only sleep w/ women they love, should be horny virtually all the time.

WBH, how did the ephedrine make you feel? It`s like an antideppresant?

roids dont kill your libido if you do them right

Low self-esteem and depression is all it is. Try to get a feeling of real intimacy going between you and a female and you’ll get a stone boner for days.

I gotta agree with catman.. I was the EXACT same way(I’m 20). I had no sex drive, I’d have to force myself to beat off just to keep my prostate in check. I took like 10 different supplements, most of which probably didn’t do much at all.. I ate PERFECTLY and had an extreme lifting schedule. Looking back on it (just like 6 months ago for a period of about a year) the only reason I was like that was because of a low selfesteem. I didn’t realize it but I was very depressed and paranoid alot of the time.

Another possibility though is all those supplements are wearing down your organs like your liver, etc. Testosterone might not be as high because of your bodies systems are going to shit.

If you don’t get any fat in your diet, or if you do extreme type dieting, maybe even bodyfat levels could have something to do with it. Start eating lasagna, steak n potatoes, etc. ( If you’re used to eating strict low calories foods this will give you a nice anabolic rush for a few weeks of eating like this before fat starts really building up).

I was in the same boat though. You’ll be fine.

Haha I just realized that post if from April of 2004.

I didn’t realize it either, but WBH is still an active member so it would be interesting to know how things developed for him.


Horny Bastard

I don’t ever have a sex drive, but my masturbation drive doesn’t seem to want to let up. The older I get, the more I beat off.
