Great. It's good that you are talking with a doctor.

One thing Ive concluded is that abstaining from ejaculation does not make your libido improve faster. All it does is temporarily make you feel a higher libido; then once you ejaculate its back to square 1; wait another 5 (or 10 or whatever) days to feel anything again. After ejaculating I always felt 0 sex drive again.

This does not mean your libido is increased; you should drop back to 0. Abstaining very temporarily increases the feeling of libido; but I dont think it actually helps at all in the grand scheme of things.

I was at a point a few months ago where (for 2 weeks or so) Id actually actually feel my penis move slightly (bloodflow) subconsciously when I saw something attractive. But then I smoked (2 small hits) and it set me back a few months. Now Im not quite back there yet, but probably about 2-3 weeks away based on how I felt before I smoked.

Nice Insight Sparkle..........I am Currently on 99th Day........still not getting morning woods which i used to 5-6 months ago.....fapped twice 3 days ago..........I am also starting to feel what you described about no-fap is correct........Perhaps except exercise nothing enhances recovery neither supplements nor any other sh**.......
Have been diagnosed with Tuberculosis 2 days ago....have been put on meds for next 9 months.......I think this too is going to **** up my recovery.....however doctor said that I can continue with my workout regime.....I just pray to god that everything gets alright within 2-3 years otherwise It will be very very hard for me.......whenever I think about dilapidated condition of my libido my heart sinks into anxiety and my mind gets numb with depression.............
Your insights help me alot sparkle ........thanks for keeping us updated......

As do most men. Hence the "give me 20 and we can go again". From what I've read on this and before people get all defensive, libido and sexual drives are all heavily dependent on the emotional or psychological state of the person. An example being ed when a person is stressed at work or feeling fed up with life. The mind is the field of battles... conquer there and you win your wars.

@tokeless thats true, but Im talking about something slightly different. After ejaculating with paws/low libido, your fragment of a sex drive disappears; and I no longer find anything sexual remotely interesting. Thats different than having to wait 20-40 minutes before doing it again - its a complete lack of desire to do it again for many days or weeks. My favorite porn could be playing on the tv and it wouldnt even make me look twice.

It is a mental problem and not a physical one; but I dont think its one you can conquer with willpower. its the brain not finding sex interesting anymore; no dopamine released anymore for things that would normally turn me on and interest me. If I wasnt in a reltionship I wouldnt even care about the low libido; because I just dont think about sex at all since it doesnt interest me. But it is getting better slowly; in sync with my other remaining paws symptoms improving (its one of 3 left).

@Potsmoker1 one other symptom that was pointed out int he other big ED thread, that I observed after it was pointed out to me. flaccid size seems smaller. Its weird. And on top of that the numb / responseless feeling is consatant. I didnt get morning wood for over a year, its starting to come back now.

Im at 1.5 years and starting to feel sex drive again; sex is starting to be something I look forward to instead of dread and want to get over with; as it has been the past year.

@sparklefly ....yes the smaller flaccid size problem is there with me too......i feel very lowly of myself when I see my small sized junk during bathing.......it appears too wrinkled and too small......sometimes I feel I am not even the shadow of that too horny person I used to be....
You gave me a big relief by telling about your timeline of getting morning woods .........I was so tensed about it......now I can wait peacefully for it......
Only silver lining in this whole 100 days long ordeal for me is that my semen is turning more and more viscous by each day.......
Moreover nowadays I am keeping myself heavily occupied with studies......this helps with anxiety a lot and distracts me from focussing on my low libido...
Another advantage for me is that I am in a long distance relationship and my girlfriend will not be able to meet me for next 4-5 months.....
Thanks for your replies guys.......

Most men are a shower or a grower.
