    why does my libido crash after week 10 on a test only cycle?

    Can someone tell me why without fail after about 10-12 weeks of a straight test cycle i experience erectile dysfunction and loss of libido?! I run test 400 and up until week 10 i had a acrazy sex drive then within a week it crashes. I have only taken tamoxifen as needed intermittently if i start holding water or puffy nips. Currently have none of these side effects. Ed meds barely work either. What is going on, this happens every single time i cycle?? And how do i proceed from here??

    No i dont take an ai, although i dont have any estrogenic side effects prob due to me using tamoxifen . I had guessed at prolactin levels?

    Am I the only one that considers lack of libido a desirable thing?

    Who needs a libido disorienting priorities?

    Man, you have your answer... Tamox is a serm, it doesnt reduce estrogen plasmatic levels like an AI does.

    You probably have E2 of a ovulating woman lol

    Depends on many variables, everyone is different.

    How about doing some blood work?

    AI's work quickly. But in this day and age with information literally at your fingertips and being a multiple year member here, how are you not aware of the need for an AI?

    Good point, iv never lost libido until the past 3 cycles nor have i ever had any estrogenic side effects, the last time i ran arimidex it seemed to do notjing at all, im guessimg it was fake now

    Carefull that low E2 can also kill your libido, and 0,5mg ed is a high dose, lower it to at least 0,5 eod

    You've had side effects, you just can't see the internal ones. Far more to it than just gyno.

    After 3 cycles... I'd say you shoulda began using an AI after the first sign of problems, then again one should always use an AI throughout the entire cycle... Managing E2 is Of main importance here...
