Low libido :(
« on: January 03, 2018, 06:20:23 AM »
Hey everyone. Im 6.5 months pmo free. Some mo in the past 4 months and os with gf. My libo seems to have faltered this past 3 weeks. 4 week ago i had sex. My penis was 100% hard but did soften slightly. I was feeling pretty confident a few days later when i went to have sex again but i only got to 80% hardness and its been more or less the same since.

4 weeks ago i could masturbate standing and my erection would be higher than 90 degrees to the floor. Now i cannot. My penis is more shriveled when flacid.

When i quit pmo last summer i was shriveled for a week then it cam back to life. This time its 3 weeks plus.

Is this normal? Im starting to wonder if there is something else. Im going to cut out all orgasm for the next 3 weeks and see if it helps. Ive only reall od a couple of times a week the past month.

Any help please :(

Forgot to add that this started the same time as i started waking up early before that i was sleeping to my alarm.

Still have morning wood maybe not as regular but last week i woke up soft one day but went hard a few minutes later and it stayed rock hard for 20min which was the best ive had since a while.

Im some what perplexed right now

I've read that flatlines can come and go throughout a reboot.  They can be triggered by O, or by sex.

I'm certainly no expert, but my guess would be that you're simply in another flatline.

Maybe take it easy on the O for a while.  Karezza?

Best of luck to you.

Can flatlines be triggered by orgasm without a partner?

Ive read that flatlines can be caused by o and sex too. For the life of me i dont know why. Since when pmoing you could do it everyday and still be fine. When i started my reboot in june i could get 70 80 % hard with gf and harder masturbating without porn on my own. I still had morning wood. I had no withdrawal symtoms or urges to look at porn.

From what id read i believe i had a mild case of pied. Things were improving slowly i was getting hard during foreplay fairly easy. I was just starting to have sex again.

I dont understand this...

I just wonder if flatlines can be induced without quitting porn and from orgasm without a partner. Because that's what happened to me apparently. Are you in a flatline?

I dont know if im in flatline. I dont feel that horney. But thats about it. My penis is shriveled some of the time but its cold weather so i dont know. It can be fine in the warmth. Ive never experienced the bad flatline and depression symptoms that people talk about.

I tried to get errect on my own this morning and could only get 70%

Im going to cut out o for a few weeks and see if it comes back. If not im going to the doctor. I wont m again either

Ive had the cold. Been eating bad and drinking over Christmas. Ill be getting back in the gym and getting my diet sorted again might help.

Im also taking zinc, fish oil, and vit d. Going to change the zinc to zma to see if the magnesium helps.

Also my semen volume is very high. Theres loads of it! Maybe due to the zinc. But i thought that was a sign of good testosterone and libido?

Sounds normal for this horrible condition tbh. Brain changing, relearning reality etc takes time, and it'll have ups and downs. Hopefully you'll recover quick but don't set too high expectations. It can be a long journey.

Generic Viagra 100mg tablets can help in getting full erection without an issue.

I'm 5.5 months into my reboot and I also notice that I have periods of really good erections and sex (2 hours sometimes), and then other times nothing. It's so up and down - and I think this uncertainty and back and forth can make this condition even more stressful.

Apparently, after more time rebooting the flatlines become less and less in terms of how long they last for.

Before porn days, and also whilst I was still watching porn, I never had anything like a flatline. I could PMO every single day. But when I quit porn, then this whole flatline thing started. Crazy.
