I started taking P5P and vit C a few days ago, how long should it take to notice a change, assuming it's doing something?

Could be coincidence, but yesterday I had a big increase in libido which lasted for an hour maybe. It's not the first time it happens, but it was a long time since last time it happened. Also, this morning I woke up to a wet dream. These occur every now and then, so that itself isn't out of the ordinary, but this time it actually felt good. Usually they just feel forced and uncomfortable. So maybe vit C/p5p is helping, or it's just a coincidence.

It could still be, this has happened before, where I'd randomly get a spike in libido for a few hours or sometimes a day or two. I'd always hope that my problem was fixed, but that was never the case.

Definitely start icing your balls if you haven't tried this yet. I did a video talking about the benefits:

Cold packs caused a (scary) lump on one testicle that required a sonogram to rule out cancer.

It was a calcification or something

Very unlikely to be a coincidence.

Shortly after taking my supplements I sometimes feel an increase in libido. Unfortunately it goes away a bit later. Other than this, I don't think I've noticed a change, but maybe I just have to give it more time?

I had a doctors appointment earlier today about this. As expected, it wasn't very encouraging. Her mentality is basically "If these 10 labs all fall within reference range, then there's nothing wrong with you physically, and it must be psychological". Her suggestion for me was to try to masturbate differently by using some special sensitizing lube, to see if it helps increase my libido... like what!? Anyway, she ordered some new labs, so I'll probably get the results next week.

Here are the labs:

Testosterone: 17.3 nmol/L (ref: 8.6-29)
SHBG: 32 nmol/L (ref: 18-54)
TSH: 1.56 (ref: 0.27-4.2)
Prolactin: 278 mIU/L (ref: 86 - 324)
Glucose: 5 mmol/L (ref: 4-6)


So apparently my free testosterone is about 60% higher than last time. Either the supplements are doing something, or the values fluctuate like crazy.
Prolactin looking quite high, no? Worth mentioning is that I had a wet dream the night before, not sure if that makes a difference.

I mentioned feeling a temporary peak in libido after starting the new supplements. This is no longer the case though. It seems like whenever I find something that works, it stops working because my body "re-calibrates" itself (receptor sensitivity or something maybe?) until my libido is low again. I don't know what I can really do...

I know guys with the same prolactin levels you have with short refractory periods.
I guess low prolactin does not really equate to high dopamine and high histamine activity, even it should in theory, maybe all can be low at the same time.
