What specific drug did you use (finasteride, dutasteride, saw palmetto, isotretinoin/Accutane, fluoxetine, sertraline, citalopram, leuprorelin, etc…) the problem started after the usage of 150 mg of letrozol, 100mg arimidex and 4,5g nolvadex over the period of 75 days. I also used roacutan for 2 weeks but didn’t notice anything and already had ed from this crap. After stopped taking all this cold turkey I also stopped pristiq and lamictal and had one invega injection( which I’m sure isn’t the problem, it was once but now it’s no longer in me)

Anything not listed in the above questions you’d like to share about your experience?

Tell us your story, in your own words, about your usage and side effects experienced while on/off the drug.
I started to use letrozol, arimidex and nolvadex and I could no longer get spotpnraneous erections even looking to porn, but I could get 100% erection by hand stimulation. I was so dumb to do this but I had sure it wasn’t permanent. Now I’m fucked now I won’t live like this. Everything is normal since December I’m fucked.
I forgot to tell that symptoms got worse since stopping and now I can’t have erections even by hand stimulation. I’m dying soon
Forgot to add other symptom. My head of the penis is completely dry. It hurts a lot if I try to masturbate because that watery thing that would happen doesn’t happen anymore. That’s all my symptoms. I hope no one does what I did. I regret so much I destroyed myself wtf

Not only arimidex 1mg arimidex and 2.5 mg letrozol and 60 Mg nolvadex. No I didn’t got any joint pain or any other side effect which suck because I would have stopped if I developed something. I only got impotent

can you describe your flaccid shrinkage by % ? I don’t think its as crazy as it seems you still have feelings to your penis & not numbness

When it is smaller than normal I would say 50% shinkrage. Then there is days where the flaccid size is normal. Do you also have erectyle disfunction?

yes. I was complete impotent at one point back in 2010 from saw palmetto then erections started coming back later on. I had a doctor put me on arimidex monotheraphy to lower estrogens at 1mg at eod back in 2013 from clomid & hcg trials I don’t remember taking that dosage but probably did I was desperate at the time. kinda left doctors and hormones alone & depended on my body’s ability 5 years later I could have erections and sex been with my gf for 5+ years. currently tho im dealing with daily shrinkage & muscle mass loss so somethings off again in my body or crashed again

@edrudd I don’t mean to downplay your symptoms, but if the only ones you have is erections/shrinkage, you have a ton of room for recovery!

I would bet on accutane causing you ED problems. The good thing you dont have any brain fog and mental problems like many finasteride sufferers

The best years of my life was from 2008 to 2014 when I had two really good friend in my building and the other period was 2016-2018 when I had three good friends. But my life only was good until August. I remember… august 2018 I was in a sick room in Copacabana palace and my dick was working i had masturbated 3 times and was going to fuck a hooker but my family came back. That was my last happy weekend.
Joao marcelo and cologni was my final best friends. Joao marcelo tried to help me he’s a really good guy. My life was at its best when I was in palmares from 2016 to mid 2017. My life was really good. I only want to remember the good memories… I wish I hadn’t done all this crap and could live my life with my friends I would start going to parties this year. This year would be the best year of my life. But I can’t do nothing anymore. All I have left it’s memories… I am sure the males my age will undestand this decision the only one who won’t will be the adults who think this is bullshit or whatever. I can’t live like this this is torture. I had greats times with cologni, Joao marcelo and ferros( which no longer talks to me because I am weird). But it’s good he doesn’t talk to me because if he knew the shit I done to myself he would be pissed with me and probally sad for me too.

Please hang in there man. I’m a totally fucked up and I’m in my late 20s (where you will
be in ten years from now). Even though you think now should be the best time of your life, I think now for me (late 20s) is absolutely amazing. Imagine how much advancement in medicine can happen in 10 years, not to mention natural healing. You may lose some time, but you will have your whole life ahead of you when this is fixed. Me too - even if I lose 10 years, I will still have half my life to live. That’s something you should hang on to. They could find a cure in a year and you can be back partying with your friends. That thought alone makes it worth the wait.

Hang in there kid, we are all in this hell hole together. If your 6 months out you may heal with more time maybe within a year or 2 just give it a little more time, I hate my life as well for the time being but I’m still going to fight through this no matter how shitty things get.

Give it time you will improve lad, just keep exercising and eating healthy. Cialis/Viagra help considerably. Don’t waste your life over this.
