There’s no cure. You and me are fucked for life
You’ve only been on here 3.5 months. It’s easy to be pessimistic especially in the beginning. I’m putting faith into the carnivore diet. I spoke to an expert on it and she basically just reassured me it is the healthiest way of eating but that reversing chronic health problems can take time. She said it could be months or years but I trust the diet along with exercise
Things have not got better with time for me. It has been nearly 3 years for me. No improvements.
What gives you hope to break?
Don’t say that, if you use right drugs, you can cure yourself if natural treatments don’t work. I don’t recommend it. It’s against the forum rules and yes it is risky. But i have been talking with a guy recently, he knows a lot, really a lot about all this stuff.
And just by my lab tests and experiences he basically listed all of my problems in few minutes and told me to how to correct them. So turns out i i have low FSH and LH which resulted low T= low DHT. If i first correct my FSH and LH with Clomid, HCG cycles. Then i can use Proviron for my DHT. And if low dose of DHT won’t work, that means my Androgen Receptors needs more (high doses of it which how @JustQuitDut and Pal got recover) to get reset which is unlikely, because my AR seems in good shape due to i can get erect whenever i want. So… the “theoretical” solution is on front of me. I will research what he recommend to me for months to see and clear out any kind of risk or misinformation. But there is that. I wrote this here because maybe it can give some hope and relaxness to you guys. Get tested, and if you feel like to kill yourself, then do your research and use something like Proviron with proper protocol and then, maybe you can recover 100% in no time. It is not impossible. Again, i don’t recommend it, im not an any kind of authority. Some people got worse with these stuff. This is just an example to show you the idea of a possible recovery.
It’s weird man. My physical/sexual sides have healed almost completely since the 5 years I took that fucking garbage. My dick works on command, as it did before. I have a high/abnormal sex drive, like before. Note, immediately post accutane (and 2-2 1/2years after) I felt like a fucking eunuch. No drive, no erections etc. My muscle mass has returned, my bone mass has returned, my alpha attitude has returned. My competitive nature…etc/general masculinity. I can exercise again, I sweat again, my armpits emit an odor, as they should. Now, here’s where it gets weird…my mental health is still bad. I’ve had improvements in some aspects, i.e anhedonia, joy, drive etc but other aspects have just gotten worse. Psychosis, depression, anxiety, cfs all of these things are really bad atm…so I can’t even really enjoy my resolution of the physical/sexual sides. If I could recover my mental aspect and the cfs, I’d be 100%. I thought once I recovered in one aspect i.e Sexual or mental sides…the other aspect would soon follow suit, I thought the sexual/physical/mental side effects were all linked. I was wrong.
I thought the same. As physical symptoms and fatigue improved for me, my sexual and mental health declined. Can’t win.
Really surprised that you recovered sexual function and libido after 5 years. Almost unheard of and sexual symptoms are usually the last to remain above all else. Very lucky to at least have that back.
My sexual sides -bad ED- has not improved. Sperm parameters went from normal post accutane to azoospermia a couple of years later. T is stable around 400 after a two clomid cycles.
I noticed testicular shrinkage recently after 8 years into PAS+SP which depresses me.
I will say this. LCLT kickstarted my oily skin again and gave me a huge strength increase that hasn’t left since. Vit d/Mk4 restored my bone mass loss and really gave me that androgenic feeling back along with time. It’s crazy how dynamic this illness is. You got some people who recover partly, some not at all, some halfway, etc. Also, I think my time in the military really helped out. Constant exercise. Sex drive/ libido/ed has had a slow but constant increase since about 4 years ago. In the military it was around 50/50. About 1 year ago, it was around 60 percent. I’ve had a massive improvement within a year.
Can you state which things cured your sexual symptoms? Do you really feel like your orgasm intensity, both mental and physical came back to normal? Penis sensivity, hardness and its size? Is it all like pre-accutane? That’s frickin awesome dude…! @AccutaneZombie
Im on my 6th year into this shit, although a mild case but getting worse.
If you understand that you’re a mild case why do you even post here as much as you do? Be thankful that you’re not completely screwed up in terms of muscle, skin, hair, brain fog, etc. I’ve even seen posts from you that you’re questioning whether or not you even have PFS…
What I’ve seen work for many is a low carb diet (help heal the gut) that consists of natural foods, avoid 5ari’s and endocrine disruptors when possible. exercise. Sauna and cold baths. Be positive, don’t stress out, be hopeful
Does anyone have a link to the list of 5ari foods that moonman apparently posted here somewhere once but that I don’t seem to be able to find?
I agree. I’ve seen those posts all over the forum now. I’m not trying to be rude or anything but maybe your OCD about the condition is a bigger problem than the condition in itself in your case? @Cooper
Guys what have you seen? No i never questioned if i had PFS or not. If i ever did thats a shame of me. Maybe i was just trying to mask the reality of what happened to me? I took it when i was 16, it traumatized my life. I have numb orgasms, thinner penis, almost no semen volume, watery semen and low libido now… Oh and a hourglass flaccid before pee and whatnot. Hope its enough for you. Thanks for giving me positive approach though, yes im aware i have a mild OCD. But i don’t think i make things up in my mind. Maybe before, but not now anymore. I am thankful with my “lucky” situation, i just want to recover.
No I’m not questioning whether or not you have those symptoms, just saying that maybe you obsessing over these symotoms is making you suffer more than the symptoms themselves? I mean with those symptoms, I think most people here would just move on with their lives and consider themselves lucky in a sense… Especially that you don’t really have sexual dysfunction even? So you’re capable of having sex normally or atleast close to normal.
I’d say time was the biggest factor. I think my time in the military (constantly working out) kick started something too. At this moment, I can get 100 percent rick hard erections, my libido on most days is ravenous like before accutane. I get morning wood, etc. I fantasize about girls. That brain to penis/body connection that you feel when you are attracted to a girl is back. A year ago I was maybe, 60 percent sexually. I am by all means 100 percent I’d say. Can also get erections while standing again…this was also impossible post accutane. I think vit d, k2, etc helped a bit but honestly I think my body just randomly kick started something and thus recovery. The bad thing is, my sexual health is at its best since I took accutane…my mental health is at it’s worse I think. Idk how to explain this but…that’s the case. Horrible paranoia, ocd, depression, anxiety. My brain feels melted.
How long did you take the poison? how much dose did you take
3 months. 40mg. Funny thing is I was prescribed 80mg, but I chose to only take half in an attempt to reduce side effects. If I had taken the full 80 mg for the full 6 months, I’d be even more fucked. I stopped once I noticed i had grown fucking breasts and my dick didn’t work, along with feeling asexual and anhedonic. I had a bunch of other symptoms…but those were the main debilitating ones atm.
Did you have genital shrinkage as well? That’s amazing you recovered your sexual function back! Btw love the Broly avatar!
