Body Fat is 15% (always HAVE worked out since I was 14 yrs old..NO smoking or substance abuse EVER) I am 53 yrs old. Type I Diabetic since age 39. Doctors say a VIRUS hit my pancreas in 1999 AND my heart in March 2012. I use a CPAP machine to sleep & try Viagra which now Viagra 25-50mg does NOT seem to help like it use to. My question is: I seem to have a low sex drive..feel like I could do without sex. I DO get horny watching "some" porn, but erections are not good. Too much desensitizes me. Tried to have intercourse with a woman I just met and could not get fully erect OR have an orgasm. With watching porn, I can mentally choose what scenes I watch and therefore monitor which ones arouse me to orgasm by masturbation.
Why do I have a low sex drive and libido?? Is it my age and these medications and the bad heart and the sleep apnea??
I get 3/4cc Testosterone Cyp weekly and take Proviron 50mg daily to help.
Why won't the Viagra help like it use to?? Is it because of my age and these medications and the bad heart??
I am told by a male friend that he doesn't function with overweight women and that's what I tried recently. My whole life I have done best when I had "Feelings of affection and love" for the woman and then I could get erect and perform and orgasm. Do i need a woman who weighs less and looks better?? I'm ALL upset & confused & depressed over all of this!!
When I was 30, even 40 yrs old I was wanting sex almost every day and often 3-4 times a day with an attractive partner.
Now I'm 53 and have almost no desire.
I hear what you have said....do these Beta Blockers not kill a sex drive??
Gabapentin I take is for a Siatic Nerve, not for neuropathy from Diabetes.
****I can't figure out WHICH is causing my problems with sex drive and libido loss.
*** You addressed the different things that COULD BE the cause.
What's the botXXXXX XXXXXne doctor??
WOULD a thinner woman help instead of a 5'3" 225lb woman?? I think it would, but not 100% sure.
