    I’m on same boat, I haven’t watched porn or fapped since May 2019 and my erections are still weak. I actually broke my streak today :(. Still no luck. Don’t know what to do :(

    Do you have weakness like back pain lower abdomen pain if you do some physical activity. Also I have loose bowels with even slight stress on stomach. I cannot concentrate on work for long stretches . I wake up tired. I have almost zero motivation even when I don't pmo. My pennis is weak it leaks easily. I can feel this particular aspect. Also I have very bad odour farts every now and then.

    Well either way I’m definitely not asexual. Prior to quitting porn I had a sex drive and could achieve an erection from MO. I’ve tried other Ed meds, but viagra is the only one that works well for me. The problem is that it’s bad for my heart! I guess other Ed treatments like are there like you say, but I consider those last resort treatments due to the risks and complications. For the time being I haven’t given up completely on curing this naturally...

    Guts and Doper. I’ve been looking considering low-t as a possibility lately. Here’s the results of the blood test I took roughly one year ago.

    Free Testosterone
    0.33 nmol/L (0.2-0.62)

    21.7 nmol/L (8.64-29)

    44.7 g/l (35-50)

    3.02 IU/L (1.5-12.4)

    5.63 IU/L (1.7-8.6)

    112 pmol/L (41-159)

    148 mU/L (86-324)

    55.6 nmol/L (18.3-54.1)

    1.6 mIU/L

    So I’ve been looking into this far the last couple of weeks, and it’s seems whilst my testosterone level is pretty high my free testosterone is lower than optimal due to a high SHBG level. I've researched all of the natural ways to increase free testosterone and lower SHBG. So my plan is for the next 6 months to supplement with 10mg boron per day to lower my shbg, limit/avoid alcohol, increase fat dietary fat intake to 35% of my calories with a focus on saturated and mono-unsaturated fat and avoid exposure to xenoestrogens. I’m also going to be eating in a slight calorie surplus for the next six months. At the time of my last test I had been in a calorie deficit for a while and was around 8 percent bodyfat and had been drinking more alcohol than normal, which I believe effected the result. I’m still skeptical about this being a hormonal issue because I lost my libido after quitting porn. I did start training with weights a few months after quitting aswell, and at one point I got worried my libido might have been lost from working out. But I tried a 3 month period off from weight lifting and my libido didn’t come back. Also heres a link to an article Gary Wilson from YBOP wrote about low testosterone treatment which makes me skeptical.

    Another thing to add is that a good friend of mine has just been diagnosed with low T ironically. His T levels are super low around 8 nmol/l, so he definitely has low t, which he thinks maybe a result from some steroid cycles he did when he was younger. He showed me his results and even though his T is very low; his shbg and estrogen are lower than mine, so his free T isn’t all that much lower. His free testosterone is 0.282 nmol/L where’s mine 0.33 nmol/L. I asked him if he has any sex drive or Ed issues and he said he has no issues and a good sex drive still, and that it’s just his energy levels that are the main syptom he suffers with. My friend is very open with his problems so I know he’s telling the truth. So it makes me a little skeptical, but I’m gonna to give these new habits a try for the next six months and do another blood test. I’ll check back with the results in 6 months

    Infections of some sort or toxicity or dht blockers or other pharma drugs that's crashed your endocrine/immune and or nervous system. Poor nutrition maybe, but not likely

    Can't think of any other possible cause

    Can doing excessive pmo crach the system?

    How do I heal myself. It becomes difficult when sleep is not natural and I am dependent on some medication to sleep.

    Hello, I am new to the site, unfortunately I have the same symptoms as you. For me, the first signs of ed appeared in 2015 accompanied by lower abdomen pain, or discomfort. I feel my abdomen permanently swollen, as if I am permanently stressed. In my case, it suddenly appeared in a few months. At the moment I can get an erection only by manual stimulation. For sex I use sildenafil 100mg but it doesn't work 100% .
    I haven't watched porn in years, I don't masturbate and yet my libido is at 0. I admit that I haven't tried hard mode for more than 2 months.
    I am convinced that our problem is due to overmasturbation. Earlier I also had sleep problems and even hypertension, possibly the stress we are going through.
    I decided to try a 6-month hard mode ... I hope at least something changes, if I don't have any idea ... I went to 4 urologists, endocrinologist everything is fine. I mention that the ed appeared after a overmasturbation period on porn daily 3-4 times for 2 years. It can not be a coincidence.
    Read this can be the explanation.

    So do you think we can recover ?

    What do you mean by earlier? Don't you have it now?

    Are you married do you have children?

    Sleep problems have not disappeared but have improved a lot. The problem of hypertension has been solved.
    I think that most of the blame for this problem is the stress caused by our situation. We have nothing to do, we have to live with the situation, the more you think about it is worse.

    I don't know ... I've been trying hard mode for 6 months now ... The last time I was 2 months I felt a significant but insufficient improvement and after a few orgasms it went away. If it doesn't work out anyway, I accept the situation, more I think about this situation, the worse it is. I will live alone as many others live. I think I force sex, the worse it will be, and it makes no sense.

    I don't know mate if that is coming from someone who is 42 makes some sense as you have a lived much longer than me. And you have other things to worry about now. I m just 22 and premature aged. Always having discomfort in my knees. Feels as if they are dry in lubrication always and hence become stiff very often.

    It can, since you train your body and mind, for how long are you having this problem?
