First of all I just want to start by thanking whoever is taking the time out of their day to read my thread as I know everyone is going thru tough times at the moment. Another thing I want to mention is that English is not my first language so Im sorry if my typing isnt the best. I just wanted to describe my journey and get any friendly advice.

Im a 31 year old male living in Texas but have been dealing with ED and hormonal issues all my life so far. I'm tall in shape and have my own medical equipment business and make decent money so this is obviously something that has been nagging on me for some time. When I was younger in high school I noticed I had really big boobs and this made me really insecure in high school growing up. i was called all sorts of words and dealt with alot of bullying. I started doing research when I was a junior and I realized my condition was called gynocomestia and it was pretty normal. I got surgery done to remove it shortly after and started working out and turned around the way I looked.

I had my first girlfriend at the age of 20 and this is when I noticed I had ED. I was not able to perform on demand and my erections were very on and off. I was never fully hard when i was having sex with my girlfriend. After a few years we broke up (im sure the sex had a huge part of it) and since then I havnt dated anyone due to my ED. All throughout my 20s I lacked any sort of sex life because of my ED. I travel alot due to work to South America and was always around beautiful women who threw themselves at me but I was never able to perform. It got to the point where I questioned if I was homosexual but obviously I realized I wasn't. Throughout my entire 20s I only had sex with women I can count on my hands even though Im an attractive successful which male which makes it very difficult emotionally. At some point I just gave up on ever having sex and focused on just my work and business.

Fast forward to one day in January of 2019 and I saw a commerical for those low t clinics. I thought id go and check if it was relevant to my situation and I found out that my testosterone level was 197 (normal is 1200). I had the test of an 83 year old but had I had the body of a 31 year old. Shortly after the doctor started me HCG/TEST and it def helped me gain erections but I can never get erections when I need them. I have tried all sorts of pills and im afraid of injections so im not going to opt for that route. At this point i psychologically have panic attacks if i try to have sex because i have flash backs of my past.

I did alot of reading (merrix journal) and im t rying to determine the next steps from here! My urologist (dr cornell in houston) does the implants and I have a great relationship so im thinking of going with him or just going the safe route and going with Dr. Eid.

im obviousy hesistant due to my age but at this point I think its something I just have to roll with

You might want to give the injections a short trial. They might just blow your mind. For most it's not a pain issue at all.

I’m 67 yrs old and used the trimix injections for several yrs. Some success but developed scarring on both sides of penis. Had an implant January of 2020. So glad I had the AMS 700 implant. Very happy with result and my wife is as well. I would highly recommend the implant but I was older but if I had to do over I would skip injections because of the side effects I experienced. No one told me scarring could be a problem. But sticking needles in our cocks is not smart either. Have been very happy with implant . My surgery was nothing. No pain at all. For me it was not big deal as we all respond differently to this surgery. Best of luck to you.

Injections are a good way for you I think because you are so young, after you get an implant there is no going back, I feel that your issue could be solved without having your dick rendered useless without a pump for the rest of your life, the injections are a big psych out because guys don’t want to put a needle in their dick, but the truth is most of the nerve endings are in the head and the shaft, where the shot goes, is not very sensitive and after you see the benefits of a big rock hard cock and what it can do for you and whoever your sticking it in it gets easier to do

Thank you for the kind words. Im in that same boat where I already hate needles (I inject T every week) and ideally I want to stay away from more needles. Honestly, the way im looking at is that this problem is not going to solve itself overnight or within a few years....If I already have issues at my age with test/hcg then i doubt it gets better over time...

Im looking at the implant as a long term fix to an issue I know isnt going away.

My issue with this is that i'll still have to inject needles forever and because I travel alot for work and especially overseas I just thought that carried needles and medicine would be a hassle. Would you not recommend a younger male to do the implant route ?

I like my implant, I loved my first one, have you talked to a dr about an implant? I was first implanted at about your age, my dick was limp due to Multiple sclerosis, it will ultimately be up to you and your dr., the surgery is not a big deal, get the AMS, I am not thrilled with the coloplast, it’s not as natural looking and having had both I prefer the AMS. Traveling a lot would make carrying you supplies difficult and would pose issues like keeping the med cool and getting a refill an the road. I never looked back when I got an implant, go for it.....talk to your doctor and if he recommends you doing it I don’t have an argument against it....I guess I’m changing my vote, I love mine I can’t see why you wouldn’t feel the same way

When a man goes for an implant obviously there is no going back and undoing the implant surgery. You have your implant for life. I love my implant. Just pump a few pumps and you are ready for as long as you want to go. I’m sure improvements are going to be made in the IPP world but it’s a pretty good fix if you have a dick that won’t work. That in its self will make a man not want to live. I don’t know any man who got an implant that is not happy with it. I’m sure there are some but the satisfaction rate is really high. Talk with your urologist and the decision is between the two of you.

Thank you really this helped me alot. I guess im just tired of not having a regular sex life and I see an implant as a permanent fix

This is where im at today. I travel to south america and am surrounded by beautiful women and it makes a man not want to live as you said when you know you can not do the deed. Thank you for the words.

Holy crap man that's a shame. Prime of your life, making good money, pretty women all over you.
If you do an implant you won't need the T shots anymore either! Ready any time.

There's also suppositories that you insert in your wiener. I've not used them because I got over the needle phobia. Unfortunately the injections didn't work for me so I'm getting an implant. There's at least one on FT that's used Dr. Clavell so see what they have to say.
