It can be medication effects.

Your meds need to be reviewed and streamlined by your doctor.

The effects of this combination are scientifically unpredicatble.

You need to have hormone checks, checks for diabetes, circulation problems, psychological problems, cholesterol and blood pressure.

All can affect this.

See an internal medicine doctor, and if need be , a urologist.


OK, so that is an initial answer….
