That sucks Malando . It's hard enough without fools trying to undermine the good fight. How can anyone embrace pmo when they know how much damage it does. I hope the comments didn't faze you.

Day 125

Had my testosterone levels tested last week which I hadn't had done since 8 years. Dr. said everything looks good. What's strange though is that my levels are seemingly higher now than before.

2018:

Albumin 4.6 g/dL
Testosterone 951.9 ng/dL
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin   50.7 nmol/L
Testosterone Free (Calculated) 16.66 ng/dL

2010:

Testosterone 483 ng/dL
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin   20 nmol/L

I know I’m responding to a post from nearly a year ago but I’ve been reading various threads and came across this. I’m a doctor who knows quite a bit about hormone therapy. Your total testosterone is fine but your sex hormone binding globulin is way to high and this your free testosterone although in the normal range is pretty low. For example my total testosterone is about the same as yours but free testosterone is double yours. One thing you can do to naturally treat that is supplement with boron. Take 6 mg twice daily. The NOW or Life Extension brands are both good. You may notice some improvements with higher free testosterone.

Discobolus:
I’ve never heard of supplementing with boron before. I have not had my hormones tested, is there any harm in trying a low dose for short term?
 This paper ( https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4712861/#__ffn_sectitle ) seems to be saying that boron is useful for a variety of functions (wound healing, even preventing disease or reducing effects from exposure) in addition to what you mentioned, and is available in very low amounts even in nutritious diets. It sounds worthwhile to try even just short term. Is there any harm?

I don’t know of any harm. What it does in regards to testosterone is lower sex hormone binding globulin so it frees up more testosterone so the body can actually use is. I found a study which showed that in young men elevated sex hormone binding globulin was associated with ED.

Took me forever to reply to this but thank you very much for your input. I will definitely look more into this. I will so give a bit of an update later too. Happy new year everyone!

Porn-Induced Erectile Dysfunction (PIED) is a common consequence of porn addiction in males. Many such men say they can only maintain an erection and achieve orgasm with a real-world partner, even someone to whom they are deeply attracted, by replaying porn clips in their mind during the sexual act.
