    loss of sex drive after tren/test cycle

    Quick stats I am mid 40's on TRT so no PCT needed never had sex issues before, this being my 3rd cycle.

    About 5 weeks ago I came of the cycle as shown below.

    400mg Tren E
    600mg Test E

    50mg proviron e/d
    0.5 Anastrozole e/o/d

    I did this cycle for 8 weeks, gains were good had a few bad sides with being unable to sleep , my sex drive was through the roof for the first 6 weeks and I mean it was mental I just wanted it ALL the time and could even keep it hard after I had cum and go again almost straight after (I wouldn't cum again but could keep going) However by week 7 sex drive started to drop off and by week 8 I had lost interest but a bit of viagra helped keep things going. I came off the Tren on week 8 and continued with 900mg test E until week 10 hoping this would boost sex drive which it did a bit but not much.

    Since mid Aug things have not been too good I can just about manage it (sometimes without viagra sometimes with) but I just have NO LIBIDO I just dont get turned on at all, its like any sexual thoughts and feelings have been removed from my brain.

    Since finishing the cycle I am back on my TRT dose of Sus 250 every 14 days. So my test levels will be fine.

    I am wondering if I might have too much progesterone or prolactin and would like to know if Caber might help bring things back on track ?

    Any help would be good because its a nightmare at the moment, I am waiting for an appointment with an Endo but thats going to be 6 - 8 weeks away.

    I don't know what its like in UK but can you go to the doc a request some bloods? I've found, both on and off cycle, when your progesterone to testosterone ratios are out of whack your libido can drop or completely dissapear.

    Tren is notorious for loss of sex drive, I had a similar cycle, unfortunately even with a proper pct I lost my sex drive for a solid 4 months...it was hell but time heals everything

    Yes I have been to see my GP and he is booking me in to see an Endocrinologist but it will be 6 - 8 weeks and I was hoping that someone might come up with a suggestion to try whilst I am waiting. I have heard this Caber does good things but wanted to see whot people say before diving in.

    Without getting too into it I can get hard and I can have sex (but I don't WANT it) but my poor Mrs has to be really horny to get me intrested even then nothing happens until I start touching her and even when shes all dressed up and I am doing it to her I could just take it of leave it I just got no sexual feeling it really strange, honestly I could just pull out half way though and watch the tv !!! it ant nice guys I tell you.

    Hi as my post says I did run the test 2 weeks longer than the tren (I also upped the test from 600mg to 900mg for those 2 extra weeks) The shut down bit doesn't really apply to me as my natural test is shut down anyway which is why I am on TRT, my current test levels will be high end of normal, with 1ml sus 250 every 2 weeks, but it dont matter how much test I do I will still have no sex drive. I ve got some test prop I could shoot that along side my TRT sus to boost my test which I have tried but it makes no differance, I don't think its an Estrogen problem but somthings defo very wrong.

    Apart from the complete loss of interest in sex I feel fine, in fact very well, strong in the gym, sleeping well, focused etc etc its just the total loss of interest in sex thats the killer.

    If you can get hard, mkaybe is is an Oestrogen issue, maybe too much or too little, but thats just my guess

    Sometimes I can sometimes I can't, sometimes it gets there then half way into sex I lose it, viagra does help but it still isnt rock hard on 50mg viagra. But even when it is hard I still don't feel horny if that makes sence.

    Are YES I should have made that clear I have NO stress at all, am happy in my marriage (been with Mrs 28 years) she is very fit and pretty too, no money worries, no work worries.

    The only worry I have is my loss of libido, it must be some sort of in balance possible caused from the tren. Just hoping someone might be able to shed some light on it thats all.

    Well, prolactin can be an issue but it would have to interfere with your T production and most likely that would be the issue, but men on TRT that is not that likely.
    Prolactin is highest after orgasm, and this mainly causes the refractory problems with men, so inhibiting prolactin would shorten refractory periods to allow sex more frequent but I doubt it would influence libido.

    No, progesterone could compete with the DHT receptors and hinder libido, but not sure if by now that this would be a factor.
    If it was then a trans-dermal preparation of testosterone would probably be fine as this TRT tends to bump up DHT due to contact with hair follicles.
    I think there is some DHT creams in Europe somewhere I have read.

    Estrogen if too high or too low can cause libido issues and erection issues.
    If you are taking an AI then this could be an issue, or if there is some heavy aromitization going on then yes this can cause some libido issues.

    I find estrogenic effects the worst by the end of a cycle, banging more test right now might not be the best idea.

    Are you still using an AI?
