Yeah still got sides. I'm trying to ride it out a little longer but I'm at the end of my patience really. I am going to get some hormone levels checked if nothing improves in the next couple of weeks.

but the thing is this: Estradiol is way up high, much much higher than range, although doctor said it's normal, well, i have ED. Free T is low, but not very low, just below range. Doc said it's ok too but told me to work on this, so what I'm trying now is to p[ut those numbers in the range (optimal), so what i'm doing is changing my eating habits, exercising more. Although I've always exercised, I'm a fit guy, visit gym daily, never took any drugs other than fin. My total prolactin was in range. Not sure why they didn't check free prolactin. My total testosterone was in range. (although when it comes to ED what is really important is free T)
Chrisis, please check your estrogen and/or estradiol (E2).
Does anyone know why this study is not available? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1281461
When you google "estradiol in men", harshly speaking, you will see basically two things, sites that talk about men in steroids and sites that talk about aging men. High estradiol should never be a problem for someone in our age and out of steroids.
