After some time off this forum I have returned with some promising progress in my therapeutic efforts.
I have mentioned this before and I think some other users have been aware of this phenomenon -> Summer Libido!? I always notice my libido increasing in the summer time, which has gotten stronger and stronger in the last two years. I regularly spend short periods of time in the sun, bare skin, no sunscreen. Natural Vitamin D has a profound impact on my wellbeing, one I could never replicate with supplements.
In addition to this libido increase, I started spraying my upper legs and groin area with very hot water in the shower. This is due to occasional numbness I experience in my left leg since before even taking Accutane 6 years ago. I like to call this hydrotherapy, which is known to help nerve problems.
This is where it gets interesting:
I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who over the years, has gotten into the habit of flexing ones pelvic floor to try and maintain an erection. The muscle you used to use to make your d**k jump or “flex”. This led me to develop PE a few years ago, which got to a point where I couldn’t hold it in for even a minute.
After focusing on deliberately not trying to flex that muscle, totally relaxing my pelvic floor, and adding the hot water to my groin area…I have made significant progress in sexual function. I am able to maintain erections for over 30min without the help of any pills or supplements (which I have eliminated from my diet as a whole).
The next time you masturbate I suggest you try it out. Totally relax your pelvic floor muscles and don’t try and force an erection by flexing. It will seem quite contradictory to what we have been doing for years, but it has brought progress like no other.
There is lots of information on the importance of the pelvic floor in relation to sexual function and I strongly advise you guys to have a look and explore your own body.
Current Libido: After countless trials and errors, I have dropped all supplements and medication from my regimen. Gym at least 3x a week. Diet rich in carbs and vegetables + masturbating once a day for 30 days straight = Libido is the best it’s ever been. I think about sex on a regular basis and had sexual fantasies I used to have before taking accutane. I literally felt the Brain/Dick connection come alive again more and more. The other day I was actually really horny again…oh man what a feeling. Morning erections are back like never before!?..it’s hard to believe really.
It may be time, diet or regular masturbation…but I’ve gotten back to 90% of my pre-accutane self. I strongly believe that I will soon reach the 99% if I keep doing the things that brought me to this level.
I want to thank this community for being a respectful and kind environment, which allowed me to express my struggles openly and honestly. This community helped me in a lot of my dark times and for that I will be forever grateful. Keep fighting lads, you owe it to yourself.
