In brief: Not likely

This was a small study looking at variations in testosterone levels after ejaculation.
The clinical significance of these findings is unknown, and not likely to be meaningful for otherwise healthy males. Testosterone effects occur over many weeks and months, and are not affected by small or short term fluctuations in levels.
