Hey guys i’ve been lurking this forum for a few months now so i figured it was about time I made an account and shared my story.
I am a Saw Palmetto sufferer. I took it for around 10 months when I was 21 and it totally destroyed me. I got all the sexual side effects mentioned here. Low libido, erectile dysfunction, loss of morning wood, loss of spontaneous erections, and watery seamen.
If effects came on so gradually that I didnt notice anything was wrong until I hit rock bottom. Even then, stupid me, I didnt quit right away, i just lowered my dosage for another month until I realized I had to get off this shit.
It has been almost 2 years since I quit and Im still not normal. I have improved though, which gives me a little bit of encouragement. I’m happy to say now that I do get morning erections again (although they are sometimes weak ones) and my seamen is no longer watery. Also, when I first quit i pretty much couldnt get an erection at all. I would masturbate and it was as if i had no blood flowing down there. Now I can get steady wood but only after I’ve had contact with it. I’d like to see these little improvements as a sign that i will slowly return back to normal, or so I hope.
I have tried several different supplements over the past year to help recover, and I feel every time I add something new I feel absolutely amazing for like a week but then the improvements subside.
This is my regime that I’m trying out now, please tell me if Im doing anything wrong or if I should take something out/add in:
tribulus 500mg twice daily
zinc 50mg every other day
l-arginine 1000mg once daily
vitamin D3 2000ui once daily
multi vitamin daily
Thanks for reading guys, hopefully we can all overcome this horrible shit.
