    I've been experimenting with an extremely low estrogen approach the last few weeks. So many of my long term issues seem to have improved dramatically:

    - oily scalp/dandruff completely stopped

    - insomnia no longer an issue. Sleeping much better and longer duration

    - weak bladder/ frequent urination completely stopped

    - loose stools stopped

    - hair shedding stopped

    - Palpitations and anxiety stopped

    - red inflamed eyes now clear white again


    HOWEVER my libido and errections have pretty much disappeared due to very low Estrogen. I feel almost asexual. I'm not that bothered because it's such a relief to have fixed the other issues.

    But it makes me think, if High Estrogen is responsible for all those problems, but I've only lost regular hard errections and high libido, then I no longer see virility as a sign of health.

    I always thought regular and hard errections and healthy libido were a sign of good health but I'm not so sure.

    What if you are now experiencing "normal" libido? But compared to estrogen-induced libido, this seems almost "asexual." I guess this is completely wrong, because you would know if your libido is good or not, it just reminds me of the estrogen Peat quote.

    "High estrogen does sometimes cause insatiable sexual interest, partly because it increases adrenal androgens, and partly by inhibiting satisfying orgasms. Too much progesterone can suppress or neutralize the androgens. Thyroid is the best way to regulate the system, keeping libido up, making orgasms satisfying"

    What if modern day people think high estrogen sexual interest is normal, when it isn't? You know your body best though.

    That makes sense...Constant erections sounds like a hyper sexual state.

    Im curious too, what is your low estrogen approach? Top of my head: carrot salad, vitamin E, aspirin, caffeine+k2 for liver, no starch?

    @Luckytype did you figure out how to reliably lower prolactin?

    Hey @jamies33 i just started my first dose of cypro tonight. Otherwise yes i think so. Thanks for asking, means a lot

    My plan is maintaining my food intake for nutrient density. Im gonna have to supplement b6, mag some eggshell calcium and some fat solubles.
    Im walking to help mito function and keeping cortisol low. It will help appetite too, and probably get a little more co2 going.
    I am going to use cypro a few days a week. The plan is by limiting serotonin(also charcoal and carrots), prolactin should fall.
    Eventually, likely in a few i may introduce some thyroid if my temps dont respond. Basically lowering the bad things slowly and slowly alleviating the thyroid super gradually so my body thinks its "normal".

    Im sure my estro is elevated judging by prolactin but theres no way a doc in my area would test it.

    Having another set of brains to assist with ideas and combine efforts is friggin invaluable.

    I would say that your attraction to and performance with a partner is a more reliable marker of health. I make that claim based on nothing but intuition.

    Why do you think it's low estrogen causing libido and erections to wane? I'm thinking that healthy people have low nitric oxide. Would that have more to do with it?

    No not at all. For one, the definition of good health has a lot of different definitions and is quite nebulous. And even then, erections have nothing to do with it. It might be a "necessary but not sufficient" kinda deal, in this case.

    Just to add to what Tenacity said there is absolutely a strong psychological aspect involved in getting and maintaining an erection. Its pretty well known that once you get "in your own head" questioning your own performance or allow anxiety to rise(different from excitement) that even if nothing is wrong physiologically you can literally not rise to the occassion.

    Libido is 90% what happens in your brain, and here the most important are neurosteroids and things like dopamine. If you have substandard thyroid output you can compensate for that partially even just by sleeping in really warm clothes to maintain your neurosteroids at close to 18-year old levels. It's the difference between feeling asexual and wanting to fxxx everything in sight.

    Needing porn and unable to get aroused by 'basic' things is indicative of a screwed dopamine system (in that case stop watching porn) or screwed hormones/neurosteroids which you need to fix your health for.
    By basic I mean you should be able to get an erection just from standing next to an attractive female or even using your imagination for very basic things like kissing. If you don't get hard from that you have some problems going on most likely.

    I've been through all ends of the libido spectrum as my health changed and in my experience the states where my libido was the highest were usually the healthiest overall.

    Erection quality itself is a bit of a different subject where some other factors are involved, but usually you need to have first and foremost enough stimulation from the brain. Only after that can you say, yeah I feel extremely aroused but my erections aren't what they should be. Otherwise, tackle the libido first.

    I hope when you say very low estrogen you're actually measuring this on a lab test and not just going by intuition of what you think you feel is low estrogen. What did you do to lower it that much anyway? I can't imagine lowering it to the level of pharmaceuticals just with food and basic supplements.

    Neither asexuality nor hypersexuality would be healthy by definition.

    When I am healthy my sexuality is much more focused on the woman and much less my own self and pleasures if that makes any sense. I don't get too many random erections but I am very responsive to women.

    Applying a T3/T4 solution on my scrotum twice a day put me in a hypersexual estrogenic state (uncontrollable sexual thoughts, desire to masturbate) which was debilitating for me.

    When jing is full and the body healthy, one may get spontaneous erections while sleeping without any sexual thoughts involved, at certain hours of the night. The Taoists recommend drawing up this energy and circulating it in the microcosmic orbit.

    The only time I can recall being maybe a little sexually dysfunctional was when I was dieting through a summer to compete in the fall. It probably only happened a couple of times but then again couldve been a disinterest but my bodyfat levels were so insanely low that I imagine my androgens and thyroid were probably seriously affected.

    It was as if I had a mental interest but my physical interest was just kinda like "eh..nah"

    Similar situation here. Recently I've had some improvement with long term problems like anxiety and poor sleep but my sex drive is all but gone. It doesn't really bother me, in fact I rather like it that way. However loss of libido is a symptom in anorexia, probably due to lowered sex steroids. This makes me concerned that I'm undereating or not getting some essential nutrients.
    Not sure whether this is due to lower estrogen or not. My libido was never high but it was relatively "healthiest" when I was running on stress: low carb, IF, exercise. Physically I was in good shape then, leaner and more muscular than I am now.
