I was on Casodex + Finasteride for 5 months (9/13 - 1/14) while waiting to change insurance. During that time, I had no loss of libido or ability to have have an erection and reach orgasm. I added Lupron at the beginning of February and my oncologist also prescribed 5 mg daily of Cialis which I started last week. I started Zytiga and Prednisone last week as well.
While having sex with my wife last night, I had no problem getting an erection, but, for the first time ever, I had no feeling like I was going to have an orgasm so had to stop after several minutes. My mind was sort of into it, but it seemed my body could not have cared less. Is this the norm for being on Lupron?
Do you guys on HT continue to have sex with your mates although the libido is gone? Are orgasms a thing of the past or do they ever occur on HT?
The weird thing is that I don't really care that much although several weeks ago it would have been devastating to contemplate I would not be having orgasms for a year or more. I would like to maintain the intimacy and be able to pleasure my wife through intercourse, which I guess I can do with the Cialis. If anyone has any tips on what has helped them, I would be very appreciative!
