Is everyone in mid life crisis a midlife cheater?

Is everyone in mid life crisis a midlife cheater?

No: This isn't really the forum to talk about pop psychology, but i appreciate your asking. There is no understanding people, but it's natural at any age to change interests and want to make life more special in some way. You do yourself a disservice if you tell yourself that it means infidelity, whether it's your partner, or a friend, or a family member. It may be a very positive move instead. ...Read more

Male 34 no sex drive, struggling with erections, small testicles, Gynomastia from puberty, but testosterone levels are normal at 750 ng/dl ?

Male 34 no sex drive, struggling with erections, small testicles, Gynomastia from puberty, but testosterone levels are normal at 750 ng/dl ?

This is very serious: Testosterone levels are only one part of the picture. I suspect you have a prolactinoma in the pituitary gland, but other possibilities include a mutation affecting androgen receptors, XXY, hemochromatosis, and a few dozen others. I'm a lab specialist and the labs are the least reliable part of most workups. I hope you find the cause. Best wishes. ...Read more

Perhaps: You have real issues with the estrogen level that you are walking around with, you are at very high risk of stroke and heart attack. Yes, a pituitary tumors, such as a prolactinoma is a very strong possiblity. If you have not already done so, you need to see endocrinologist and you need an MRI of your brain to check your pituitary gland. ...Read more

is ED curable?
i m 23 yrs old

Continue workup: Hormones aren't the key despite "pop" wisdom. A good general medical workup is in order, especially a check for hemochromatosis and prolactinoma -- the latter is common and gets missed. I'm going to assume that you're not getting good erections with your favorite thoughts / movies / pictures. Please get a full evaluation, and good luck. ...Read more

Does polycystic ovarian syndrome cause any masculinization beyond hirsutism in teen girls & young adult women? Please, need some answers?

Does polycystic ovarian syndrome cause any masculinization beyond hirsutism in teen girls & young adult women? Please, need some answers?

PCOS symptoms: Yes, there can be masculinization. The elevated androgens in PCOS can have a broad spectrum of manifestations, from irregular periods only, to mild hirsutism to more severe changes such as male pattern of hairline, body hair in male places (chest, abdomen), etc. The level of testosterone or DHEA does not always predict this. See your endocrinologist or Gyn. ...Read more

Teen age hormonal imbalance 14 year old male questionable masculine development?

Teen age hormonal imbalance  14 year old male questionable masculine development?

Improbable...: I'm not sure what your question is here, but apparently you think you have "hormonal imbalance" at age 14. Of course you do - that is what is normal in the teen years. Nothing is in the right proportions yet, levels change constantly. That's why you have acne, are moody, have wet dreams, voice cracks. Sounds like you are the most normal teen i've heard from this week! ...Read more

Hi. I'm a 19 years old male. I'm losing my hair due to male pattern baldness. Can finasteride halt my sexual development as i might be into late stages of puberty? Thanks.

Hi. I'm a 19 years old male. I'm losing my hair due to male pattern baldness. Can finasteride halt my sexual development as i might be into late stages of puberty? Thanks.

Whoa: All men lose the hair on our temples when we are around age 20. If you are just 19, it's too early to tell whether you're going to have male pattern baldness, though there's a close correlation with how much chest hair you're naturally blessed with. These baldness meds don't work all that well, and the key to looking good from now on is physical fitness, which is completely under your control. ...Read more

What reference rage of FSH indicates menopause for someone who had hysterectomy ?

What  reference rage of FSH indicates menopause for someone who had hysterectomy ?

Follow levels: Fsh >25 indicates poor ovarian function, however the ovarian hormone levels change in ovulating women and high fsh is normal during ovulation cycle. Therefore, in the presence of menopausal symptoms, a high fsh could mean that you are entering into menopause. I check estrogen and Progesterone with the fsh and if the fsh is high and the other two low, then you are most likely in menopause. ...Read more
