Just wanted to keep you up to date.
I have been off finasteride for about 3 years. Since then almost non existent libido but could usually get libido on demand. Have tried eveything. A few months(4 maybe) back I was on 250MG testosterone a week for about 2 months. During this time I did not notice much except for a sweaty face and nose which I got while on finasteride. After coming off the testosterone I felt as if my libido crashed through its all time low. 1 month back a number of weeks after I gave up the T due to its lack of benefits I met a girl who wanted some action. I was invited to her room, started kissing touching, but felt 0 sexual desire. I had to escape out of there. She got angry.
At this point I was understandably annoyed. I stayed drug free for a few weeks with no improvements. No desire to even force myself to watch porn. If i did force myself, I suspect I would have a hard time getting wood and probly turn the porn off due to boredom.
I also noticed over the last year or so that when I eat a big meal i get worried that I am going to vomit and possibly have a small panic attack, something I have not experienced prefin. But prefin, I did have a time when i was stressed where I would wake up and feel sick in the mornings.
Anyway. this anxiety seemed to be getting worse. I also started developing cystic type acne on my butt cheeks. Something I have not had before. It got was not nice at all as they leave scars. I also got one on my back when I was taking testosterone.
6 days ago I started on liquidex (arimidex) at .1mg ever 2 days. I have been feeling great. No anxiety. Pimples seem to be clearing up and had some of the strogest libido I can remember. It is not constant but it is there. I have also had really solid morning wood for 2 days in a row, which I have been missing post finiasteride.
I have been popping wood just chating to girls online and looking at regular pics even at the though of sleeping with a girl. This seems to be a very significant turnaround for me. And can say that I do indeed feel a lot better overall, and if I can maintain this, I will be very happy with the situation.
It could all be a placebo effect but i doubt it. I did have one hormone test that said I had high E, it was at the top of the scale. I also noticed that after fin my love handles started welling up. Something that had shocked me as I have never had fat in this area.
I have tried many things, proviron, androhard, hcg, herbs ect. Nothing offered improvements to a degree anything like what I am seeing now.
For those of you who are in a bad start, I know how you feel. Do not loose hope. A sollution may or may not be around the corner. Even if it is not. You should really rethink your life. You could dedicate your time to helping people, working on solving the worlds problems. Most people never do jack to help others or their planet during their existence. We have been fucked by the system that almost evey citizen relies on. Most drugs should have never been developed. The only hope we have to achieve good health is to offer what our bodies need. Drugs should be totally the absolute last resort. But now we have drug companies with vested interests in having more sick people so they can sell their drugs. If all the time and money that these companies spend on developing drugs for profit was spent on prevention, the world would be a much better place.
