ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION AND WATERY SEMEN, LOW LIBIDO

Postby PotSmoker1 » Sun Jun 07, 2020 6:04 am

HI EVERYONE

I am an avid reader of this forum since last year. I am a 27 year old male. I am not a native english speaker so please bear with my english.

I started smoking Hashish when I was 18 Year old. Became a regular smoker at the age of 19. During graduation years ( age 19- 24) I smoked regularly each day after coming to home from college. In my city pot smokers mostly smoke cigarettes stuffed with hashish or ganja (weed) rather than using rolling paper or vaporiser. I used to stuff my cigarette with both hashish (lighting the hash and then rubbing & mixing it with tobacco) and weed thereby making a very potent doobie. I used to masturbate nearly 5-6 times a week being high on pot while watching porn during that period. It was during last year of college i.e at the age of 23-24 I noticed that my semen has lost nearly half of its viscosity, but there was no issue with sex drive or erections.

After college I had to be at home for 3 years ( I m still at home) for preparation of government job exams. During last 2 years at home i.e age 25-27 I smoked very heavily (nearly 6-8 cigarretes of hashish & weed mix each day). It was during this 2 year time my libido started to drop very significantly. Masturbations dropped to 1 per 3-4 days. Total number of cigarettes smoked ( normal+stuffed ones) reached an all time high of 25-30. My overall health started to drop very heavily. I felt fatigue most of the time.

Most affected thing was my sexual health. My semen lost all its viscosity. Now there is very small white viscous part( nearly 15-30%) in otherwise translucent semen( I started keenly noticing my semen after the last year of college). During the last 6 months I developed Erectile Dysfunction ( I lose erections midway during masturbation) and my libido dropped heavily.

However my ED has very peculiar characteristic i.e I get hard when i watch very rare kind of videos (not anything like rape or brutality or animal sex) for example woman must be middle aged in a specific position with boy for specific period of time etc. When i watch my kind of videos as described hereinbefore and masturbate watching them, then my problem of ED vanishes and also my semen contains more than usual white part ( 40-50%).

From last year I have also developed man boobs and also have gained weight.

I know I have f***ed up myself very hard. Currently I am Clean of WEED from last 6 weeks. I have also stopped smoking from last 3 weeks. Going through mild PAWS.

What made me post here is that yesterday I tried to masturbate to check my progress and ED was much more than before and semen has become lot watery ( much more than what it used to be when i smoked pot) . I am scared that I have f***ed up myself permanently.

Please Help

This sounds like estrogen exposure or a hormone imbalance. You might have an underlying medical condition that is not drug-related. Go see a medical doctor.

This does not sound like an issue from hashish or smoking cigarettes.

I agree that the drugs/cigarettes can contribute, but you are having severe ED and hormonal imbalance for your age. It is possible that you may have some underlying medical condition. You should consult a medical doctor.

In other words, do not assume that only the drugs are to blame for your health issues. Do not ignore the possibility that something else is wrong medically.

You are only 27. You have SEVERE erectile dysfunction for your age. You are growing boobs. It is not only hashish and cigarettes.

You posted for help. What type of advice do you expect? You just want to hear stop the drugs and in time your body will heal and the ED will go away? You want to take that chance?

You already made bad decisions in abusing drugs. Don’t make more bad decisions by not going to a doctor.

Day 68 of quitting: My Libido has crept up a little....semen has started to turn cloudy from watery.....but still not getting morning woods....feeling well physically after regularly engaging myself in morning yoga (& moderate exercise) and brisk walking(evening)....

Getting 5 hr strong sleep each day ( though i remain in bed for about 8 hours - 6hrs for night and 2 hrs for day).........i think i am recovering but very slowly....

No fap has helped me a lot...

i am on a pure vegetarian diet ....no supplements.....thinking about starting studies in a day or two........

I think the most important thing that i did this time( i tried quitting 2 times earlier) was to reduce the dosage of weed for about a month before actually quitting.....this has substantially decreased the intensity of paws ......also quitting cigarettes did help with the headaches....keeping my fingers crossed bcz some people here say that paws can have delayed onset after 3 months or 100 day......

So either:

-1- You went to a medical professional and they did some tests to rule out hormonal imbalance, testicular cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and other underlying medical conditions that might cause a 27 year old to have extremely severe ED.

Or

-2- You have not gone and continue to self diagnose/treat, contributing 100% of the problem to drug use.

A normally healthy 27 year old male can smoke weed and cigarettes, eat hamburgers, get no exercise, take no supplements, and still fap multiple times a day without experiencing ED. At best you will get to day 100, drug free, exercising, not eating anything but vegetables, no fap, and you will be able to pop some morning wood. Then what?

Then you turn 28, 29, and 30 where whatever underlying medical condition exists grows worse and you return to having severe ED even though you are following your plan of a healthy lifestyle.

If you feel that my advice is "rude" then so far you must have lived a very safe, sheltered life. You have not yet been exposed to what rude really is.

If your testosterone levels are normal, then that is cause for concern. At 27 with normal testosterone, you should have no problem getting erections. Again, at 27 there are plenty of weed smoking, meat-eating, lazy, no supplement taking men that have no problem with ED. You do. What is the difference? It isn't the cigarettes, the caffeine, or the lack of yoga.

Sorry for not chiming in sooner...I dont think you have been getting very good advice in this thread. Weed affects everyone differently, and a lot of people do get low libido when quitting. It is a common symptom of PAWS; as your dopamine system is critical to sexual health - just as critical as your hormone levels.

I had a similar path to you. a couple years after starting smoking, when I was smoking a lot more, I started having erection and libido issues. this all started in my late 20s.

When I quit weed, intense paws and a complete flatline in libido and ED. And I too noticed that only certain things get me excited...not being with my partner; only the types of erotica I used to watch when I was young (its not even porn...).

Its been extremely frustrating. My libido was 0 for 6-8 months, it was 8 months before i started to feel anything at all down there. The other strange thing is that I notice a "numbness" in my penis when flaccid; also that it is smaller in size when flaccid. Night erections completely went away. And I wasnt able to get turned on by anything except visual stimulation.

For me, low libido is/was the last thing to get better. I had some improvements at 7 months; again at 12 months; and again at 15 moths. I feel more normal after 15 months, I get night erections and I feel excitement when I see things that are a turn on. Not 100% - still had mild ED, but it was a lot better. Im still getting better.

Just takes time. And for some (like me) longer than others. If you look at other threads on here, you can see people that have libido issues after smoking weed have gotten better in 6mo-16mo. Im at 14mo and still getting better.

Agreed, plenty of people across age ranges experience low libido and ED from using drugs.

PotSmoker1 is not suffering from only ED and low libido. He is experiencing "Watery Semen"...and he is developing "man boobs".

There are several possible causes, some of which include certain types of infections or a malignant tumor. It is horrible, but convenient advice to explain away all of these symptoms as being purely drug-induced.

Thanks a lot @Sparklefly12 for replying...I am currently at day 82......My libido is in recovery process ( although the process is too slow).....I have noticed one thing that if I dont masturbate my libido starts getting better at a faster rate......masturbation makes everything very slow and also it invokes a lot of anxiety.......still not getting morning woods....however i get erections many a times during whole day ( but those are involuntary) however this happen when i unintentionally touch my penis or rub it......also the erections are softer than usual.......and yes i too noticed that my penis gets much smaller than usual & also kind of too wrinkled when its not erect.....

Also this time the intensity of paws is very low compared to last time......I mean during my previous attempt (2 years ago) I got such bad headaches that I cant even describe .........this time headaches are not so intense and their frequency has also decreased substantially (it may be bcz of abstaining myself from smoking cigarettes).......but this time I am getting a lot of anxiety attacks which were absent last time.....

I am experiencing muscle stiffness in left side of my neck from last 2 months ( it comes and goes away every 3-4 days) .......

@Richard ....but my semen is getting cloudy again after abstinence (both from weed and masturbation) ....it is showing signs of recovery.......also weed is one of major cause behind gynaecomastia (my doctor says that) ......I am going to give sometime to my recovery before getting it medically evaluated......

thanks once again for replies

So you're not abstaining from masterbation, or how would you know this?
