Just a quick update after a long pause.
Thanks to a recommendation from @John099, I’ve been doing the “DCT for pelvic pain” course for a few months. It hasn’t been a cure for me, but I’ve seen many other benefits:
- I’m more flexible/injury resistant
- I’m more “in touch” with my body - there’s a kind of kinesthetic intelligence that is greatly increased. Very cool!
- 10% stronger erections
- Slightly longer penis when flaccid
I don’t know if you’d consider these results worthwhile given that it took over 3 months of daily, hard exercise to see any changes. For me, I just wanted to try something new, and since I was in quarantine, I had the time to do it.
I’ve also tried joekools’ hCG protocol (250 iUs, 3x/week), but had to stop three weeks in because I developed shortness of breath and chest tightness. I had high expectations for the protocol, so I was pretty down when I had to stop. My best guess for why I started having chest tightness is that it’s some kind of asthma (asthma symptoms are hormone mediated). Interestingly, I also had asthma symptoms in the first year after I got PFS, when I also had really high LH. Increased LH might have been the body’s attempt to fix the PFS situation, in which case hCG would be the right way to go?
I have a lot of questions about the LH/hCG/asthma situation that I wish I had answers to…
I might restart the protocol with 150 iUs if the chest tightness goes away completely (it hasn’t quite gone away, after a month off hCG).
