Foxrun....When my wife wants to have sex, the only foreplay that gets me an erection now is manual stimulation. Kissing, hugging, or looking at her naked does nothing for me anymore. My wife is 23 years younger then me and she never had kids, so she has a body like a model, and I do enjoy looking at it, but I just don't get desires for sex when I look at it like I use to have. I even tried looking at other women naked on the internet, and still I feel no desires for sex like I use to have prior to my surgery. Anyway to get back the the subject, after about
2 minutes of manual stimulation , I get a super rock solid erection and I am ready for sex. I have no desires for sex, but once I start it, I do enjoy the feeling of doing it, and I can orgasm , but its not like I crave it or desire it like I use to. If I take viagra, I can mantain my erection for two hours and have sex for two hours, and I do this for my wife, but I just don't have the desires to do it. I do it for my wife, not because I crave it.
Davidg----- I don't think am depressed. I am in execellent physical and mental condition for someone who is 63. I am 6' 1" and weigh 190 and I lift weights three times a week , and try to walk 2 miles a day. My blood pressure is low at 118/74 and my cholesteral is normal. I still work a 8 to 5 job in a non stressfull engineering job in a small city. I own my own farm 10 minutes outside the city. I don't have any debts to worry about. I don't have any children to worry about. I have a beautiful young wife who loves me. I don't think I am depressed.
Peterdisabled-----The ony drug I take is Lipitor 10 mg, and I only started that two months ago because my GP thought my Cholesterol of 230 was a bit too high. I take no other drugs. I do take a lot of vitamins every day. I take fish oil 1200mg, potassium 500mg, B12 1000mg, Zinc 30mg, Magnesseum 500mg, E 400IU, C 500mg, Lecethin 1000mg, Garlic 600mg, Cinimumn 2000mg, Currcummin 1000mg, Maca 2000mg, Ginsing 500mg, Ginkgo 120mg.
The ginsing and maca I take because I read they are suppose to increase libido, but I have seen nothing yet.
I don't eat red meat or sugar or processed or junk foods. I eat only fish and chicken and organic vegetables.
I did have my Testosterone checked and it came in at 230 which I guess is low. about a year ago, I started using Androgel under the arm, but after 6 months I started getting deep pain in my thighs which I attributed to possible blood clots, so I stopped the T and the pain went away never to come back. I just read that this is a side effect of taking T so I am lucky I stopped.
While on the T, I did see some increase in my energy level and my muscle mass, but I saw no change in libido like I was hoping for.
A lot of those vitamins I take are because I read that they are natural T boosters, but I have yet to see any change in my libido.
I have not tried any of those over the counter T boosters you see advertised on TV, so maybe those are next. I have nothing to loose I guess.
