Sex drive is controlled only in part by testosterone. Your mind has equal, if not greater power on your sex drive than the chemistry of your body. I'm so sorry to hear about your battle with meningitis.

what seems to be the most challenging problem? You have interest in sexual activity, but no drive?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
no energy and no stamina and lack of mental sharpenness

I see. I'm so sorry. that must be such a challenge for you.

Is there a reason you have chosen not to be evaluated in person for this? Recommendations for this subject depend on a lot more information, including an in-person physical exam. I wouldn't want to falsely reassure you, or inappropriately worry you with information I really can't judge accurately in an online format like this.
