Since it’s been a while since my last protocol breakdown, I’ve decided to update you guys on my current condition and diet/supplements.
In regards to my last post, I still eat a diet rich in carbs (rice, pasta, sorghum porridge) and use the hot shower method. They have continued to show their benefits and I stuck with them.
*Now I was initially doing well without any but fell back into speculating on my condition and increasing Jeff Bezos wealth by purchasing a range of supplements on amazon. A lot of them being things I have tried before. Well, stupid decision as they still didn’t work, like the first time I took them.
But some new ones have provided me with great therapeutic results:
Arginine: Still one of staples for my ED (take 6g a day on empty stomach)
L-carnitine tartrate: Profound effect on penis when erect and flaccid. Noticed the head filling up fully while erect and several spontaneous erections throughout the day. Fantasising about woman that I meet has started to occur again (That mental imagery libido I might say) Get horny and erect while drunk again. Strong morning wood and overall fullness when hanging. Skin is oily and vibrant again (Take 6g a day with arginine)
I started due to some of the stories I found on here. I believe carnitine unregulates AR and helps the body utilise fat etc. My body composition (was already pretty good in the last few years) has improved - 6pack, lean and bulging muscles, strength in the gym.
- Progesterone: Now this one is controversial I know, but I had to try it. I believe that accutane strongly effected my bain chemistry, especially the dopamine system. Now progesterone is essential to produce it’s metabolites allopregnanolone and GABA. All the problems I had were definitely in the brain as my nocturnal erections were good, but as soon as I woke up “and took back control of my body” so to say, they would subside.
When I apply 5mg of progesterone cream (natural USP, BIOVEA brand) on my face, I have an immediate increase in libido and erectile response. The sight of an attractive woman triggers a response in my body similar to before I took Isotretinoin.
Now I don’t know why or how this helps me but I will definitely explore this route more deeply and get a few hormone tests to check what exactly is going on in my body.
DISCLAIMER: Progesterone is a strong 5a-reductase inhibitor so please be cautious with it and don’t follow my experience blindly.
As of now the only problem I still face is PE, which is the last hurdle to overcome in order to lead a normal life with a girlfriend, kids, a nice house in a secure area - you know the usual shebang. If anything my penis is overly sensitive and my pelvic muscles react very quickly and uncontrollably, this is something I still have to figure out.
Other than that I’m on the way to a full recovery very soon.
All the best,
