Androgens May Be Critical to EQ
If you’re new to PE, and want to give yourself the best chance to see improvements (especially considering how much time you’re going to put into this!), then using any and all information is essential. Sometimes it’s just a small piece of information that can make the difference to the degree of success you achieve.
One interesting study I came across today shows how something that many of us have suspected for a while has a basis in the scientific literature. Androgens (i.e., Testosterone, DHT, androstenedione mainly) are necessary for maintaining the structure of the most critical parts of the penis responsible for erections - the Corpus Cavernosum and the Tunica Albuginea.
To summarize, the study looked at rats. They separated them into groups, a control group and 2 other groups. Of the experimental groups, the important one was the group where they castrated the rats. This of course means much lower testosterone (especially the most important form, Free Testosterone), and lower DHT levels.
The castrated group showed a high-degree of fibrosis (a condition that could lead to Peyronie’s disease) and worse, a sharp reduction in Smooth Muscle content in the Tunica (it’s the relaxation of this smooth muscle that leads to erections).
So if you want to give yourself the best opportunity for success, make sure your Testosterone levels (including DHT) don’t drop. Although untested, probably increasing these levels wouldn’t hurt anything.
