Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually from your description, it sounds like that the testosterone boosters that you used reset the normal hormonal balance in your body to a higher level which is why you are unable to perform as you could before and are unable to achieve erections. Now usually once tyou stop the testosterone the body would reset itself back to a normal state within 1-2 months in most cases however if that does not happen then you will need to undergo testing in order to determine the severity of the problem. Additionally you would also need to get evaluated for other hormonal issues such as thyroid disorders or cortisol insufficiency which can cause this problem.

In the meantime you can use OTC supplements which can be helpful in the short term which can include,

OTC ginseng

OTC L-arginine

OTC DHEA

OTC propionyl L carnitine

These supplements should be helpful but usually the problem should correct itself within 1-2 months as i said however if does not then you should get the above tests done.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
