Specifically if anyone has had experience with sex drive crashing a ton while cutting weight?

Steroids
Write a sexual bucketlist with all your fantasies. Use it as motivation to go try those things with girls
Porn (similar to above)
More sleep
Vitamin D
Nofap for several days (this above all else)
To some extent, just toughing it out. My sex drive goes down when I'm cutting heavy.

I don't know all that much, but my testosterone has been up and down like crazy since 2019 when I started getting it checked. Anything that drops my test (like heavy cutting) absolutely destroys my sex drive.

When I was just getting into this stuff (through GLL) I suspected I was low and got tested. Came back SUPER low (~250 ng/dl), went to an endocrinologist and got on put on Clomid. That worked for a little while, my level shot up to 1200 and my sex drive went crazy even though I was in a deep cut. Since then I've been up and down a bunch of times. Every time I'm down, I have no sex drive (and can't even get erections unless I'm actually with a girl or jerking off or something).

Have you gotten a testosterone test while in a cut?

If you get tested and your numbers are super low, you can bring it to an endocrinologist and they'll probably help you get it back up. The "regular" doctor I talked to about mine (and from what I've heard, most regular doctors) won't really care unless you're like sub-200 (i.e. way outside the "reference range" - to the point where you're borderline transgender), but the endos I've had have been happy to help even in the mid-high 300's. They might put you on something like I'm on, or HCG, or actual test. Depends on the endo, and how much you want to put up with to fix it.

More plates more dates also has an article related to this: https://moreplatesmoredates.com/natural ... e-cutting/


I'll also occasionally crash it, intentionally, for a couple days before getting tested, since I'd like to keep my levels higher than the lowest level considered "healthy" but the doctors can't prescribe/recommend anything above the bare minimum to put me in the "average" range. So I crash a little before the test, so I measure in the reference range. To do that, I pretty much just eat sugary crap for a couple days, absolutely zero fat, and fuck with my sleep (pull all-nighters, change bed/waking times by several hours every day). If you don't want to do that, something suppressive like most SARMS will also knock your levels way down (for my most recent crash, since I was trying to hold on to muscle, I used Ostarine (7.5 mg/day) for 3 days before the test).


Also don't know if my body adapting to it or what, but Clomid's been getting less effective since then, nowadays my levels are back down around the 300 range and my sex drive has been way down with it (and my emotionalism way up, as y'all've probably noticed :/ ). Just last week my dosage was upped again, but my endo said we're probably going to move to proper TRT (injected test) instead of clomid soon.

What are your calories at?

What's your maintenance?

How long have you been dieting for?

How often are you training and for how long?

Do you know how many sets per week?

I've had it crash before while on 200mg of testosterone per week. I was VERY depleted. Turned down sex from my girlfriend for the first time in my life haha.

What I'm thinking is that you're training too hard, not recovering well enough, test levels are too low (from overtraining and lack of food), and/or likely in too deep of a deficit.

But can't say for sure until those questions are answered.

what kind of test did you get that was sufficient for the endocrinologist to prescribe you something? did you just get your free/total test levels checked or was it something more comprehensive?

It's completely up to the endo.
For my previous one, I got a T test myself (ordered online) before even showing up, he had me take another at his office plus a bunch of others all at once (total/SHBG, Thyroid, LH, Estradiol, etc.) before prescribing anything. The clomid was not the move though, going from just that to actual test was a big change for the better as far as sex drive. My second endo, that put me on actual test, sat on three sub-250 results over six months (while I was on clomid) before prescribing it though, which kinda sucked.

I'm switching to Marek now, so I'll see soon if they're better.

It can be done. It's not testosterone though I will tell you that. It's something else. Not saying that doesn't matter. I don't fully understand it currently. Still has some drawbacks though. Totally doable.

You have no idea what you are missing out on really.
