I've been suffering from low libido
, lack of energy, mild depression and overall less quality of life for about the past 6 months. Literally, the boys just stopped working and my mood, confidence, etc. just went down the drain. Not to mention I just feel like less of a man.
I was almost sure that this could have been contributed to low testosterone
, so I got some bloodwork done and the results came back as being 987ng/dl, which are completely normal for my age.
When I asked my doctor for my free testosterone and estrogen levels as well, he responded my stating "If there was any problem with your free testosterone or estrogen then it would have shown up in the lab results." In other words, he told me that these two hormones were fine and that I had nothing to worry about, even though I didn't get the actual numbers back.
What should I do? I'm a bit skeptical about my free testosterone and estrogen levels, since I didn't get the actual numbers back and the 'normal' ranges for these hormones are often not normal at all. Should I get my exact free testosterone and estrogen levels checked again with the numbers and everything?
Could it possibly be another hormone? What about SHBG? LH or FSH?
Keep in mind, I HAVE NO LIBIDO WHATSOEVER. It's very frustrating and it's affecting my sex life, relationships with people and overall quality of life. I just want to be happy again.
Thanks. Any feedback is appreciated.
