Is a deficiency in vitamin d, hight cortisol and prolactin, too much LDL cholesterol a sign of hypothyroid ? Symptoms dry skin, astheny and low libido

Forgive my frankness: Your lack of vitamin d is probably the result of your getting too little in your diet and not getting enough sunlight. A spot cortisol is of little value except as a screen for addison's which i will assume is ruled out. Your high prolactin and low libido in a man with some serious acne like you're being treated for makes me suspect strongly that you have a prolactinoma. ...Read more

I want to quit propecia (finasteride) after 4 years.  Im experiencing low libido.  What is the safest way to stop?

Cold turkey: You can just stop taking it. I also noticed that you're a female. Propecia (finasteride) has not been shown to be effective in women. Furthermore, women of childbearing age should not handle the tablets (if crushed or broken) as it can cause sexual ambiguation of the fetus. ...Read more

Iam 26. Since 10year ago I do over masturabation by avarge 1-2 time/day. Ihave very low  libido not erection . Is that O.M damage& how treatment ?

If masturbation: hurts, then you should not. Otherwise, you can masturbate as much as you want without doing damage. Masturbation does not usually cause impotence, but if carried out to climax, will have an effect on libido (lowering it, presumably). You seem to rely on this behavior to accomplish other things--lowering anxiety? Dealing with OCD? Do you have a sex addiction? See a doc. ...Read more

Does lamotrigine decrease libido ? does depakine causes ED? Iam take (150/day) lamotrigine & (1250/day) depakine . Ihave very low libido & no erection

Usually not: All anticonvulsants dampen ectopic discharges to some extent. This is how they work. Normally the nerve impulses to the vasculature in your genitalia should not be affected by either agent. Both conditions have been reported with both medications but in tiny numbers. Most often the problem is fixable and unrelated. I suggest you see a urologist and inform your neurologist of the situation. ...Read more

Expectation level?: Exploring realistic expectations is a good start when evaluating sexual normalcy. There is a big range of "normal" in this category.

Self-imposed performance pressures in this category are rarely beneficial. ...Read more
