I’ve been lurking procepiahelp for about a year and finally decided to make an account. Unlike most of you guys, I have had sexual dysfunction my entire life. I never took any of the drugs this forum is about: procepia, duasteride, anti-depressants, anti-psychotics, accutane, etc.
I’m 24 now. I never jerked off in middle school. Throughout high-school I had low sexual functioning. My dick would be half limp when I jerked off (only reaching full erection when I was close to orgasm), orgasms were lame, I virtually never got morning wood, my penis lacked sensitivity, and I literally have never had a wet dream. I knew something was wrong but I ignored it.
Eventually I graduated and went to college and had sex for the first time. I could hardly feel anything and didn’t come close to finishing. Over the years I had sex with many more girls, both with and without condoms, sober and drunk, and every time I got that same result, except on those occasions when I couldn’t get hard at all.
Around my Junior year of college I finally faced the fact that I had sexually dysfunction and it was not going to go away on its own. Over the last few years, I saw a few urologists and endocrinologists. Normal doppler ultrasound. Hundreds of blood tests, all normal. (Side note: I plan on seeing a neurologist soon, but I don’t expect them to find anything treatable, if they find anything abnormal at all). Viagra, cialis, cabergoline, clomid, pramipexole, levothyroxine, anastrozole, zinc, vitamins, and various supplements didn’t help. I surfed wikipedia, Webmd, ncbi, and other sites looking for information and answers. I read probably tens of thousands of posts across various websites and forums. I read extensively through Reddit, T-nation, Raypeat forum, yahoo answers, Quora, Bodybuilding.com, and various other forums relating (at least tangentially) to sexual functioning. I can say with great confidence that this website is perhaps the only one making any real progress towards curing and/or effectively treating non-vascular sexual dysfunction. Every other forum is basically a bunch of chickens running around with their heads cut off. The same questions and the same incorrect answers in so many threads, misinterpreting studies and constructing wild labyrinths of half-baked, incoherent theories that go no where, charlatans and pseudo-gurus galore. Unlike those other sites, you guys somehow got organized and managed to help put together some very real and very relevant studies (with more in progress) that will help characterize and eventually solve PFS and hopefully solve related conditions (i.e. idiopathic, non-vascular sexual dysfunction). Reading through old posts you can see the gradual evolution of this forum from a desperation-masquerading-as-confidence home-brew pseudoscience hub into the legitimate site this place is today. The scammers and the charlatans (cdnuts et al.) have been gradually expunged and the level of discourse and intelligence has grown to a level unmatched across similar forums.
If anyone is going to characterize, legitimize, treat, and cure idiopathic, non-vascular sexual dysfunction such as mine, it’s going to be you guys. I want to be a part of the forum so I can contribute and speed up this process in whatever small way I can.
