Opening this thread to keep track of my results just started taking them today.

Question for Area, I was also taking Vitamin D and Magnesium and Omega3' and Zinc supplements.

The Vitamin D actually helped me get my morning erections back - does it matter if I keep taking all those supplements or should I stop while on this Berberine and Icariin plan?

You should keep taking them.

So this is now my 3rd day taking Icariin and Berberine and I can say I am noticing results - had sex for the first time during this treatment and the sensitivity was back no more numb tip.

Still a bit of a delayed reaction but once I'm there I'm there.

Anything change in your diet or exercise? The most obvious answer is something like that changed or you are stressed. I wouldn't attribute that to Berb or Icariin just yet. Keep taking them. Are you getting enough Omega-3 in your diet?

Running boosts circulation, so that probably is benefiting you more than you think. Run at least 3 times a week, that should be enough.

hey area, ran the other day and noticed a difference that same night, so im gonna keep up that routine. Question though, i noticed that even though the erections are still a bit soft my sensitivity is still as high as alwys, is there a way to get the erections back but not all of the sensitivity ? I am trying to avoid premature ejaculation.

It depends on what you call sensitivity. If it is nociception relative (no numbness) it is one good and more rare thing. If it's ejaculation just when your penis almost grown it is another - bad thing.

By the way both zinc and magnesium are involved in nociception. I also read that paracetamol worked for someone, but it's not and option too I guess. Also piracetam worked for another guy. But I don't like that idea for some reason too. Maybe catuaba bark? It inhibits DAT so this theoretically can work against anxiety, for libido. It also has serotonergic effects. I don't know how it works in delaying ejaculation, area mentioned this in his blog... Did you try yohimbine? If yes, did you like it? Does berberine help?

My advice to you would be to perform jelq's and timed masturbation (climax control) meaning, practice stopping yourself before orgasm and practice self-discipline techniques so you can better control your climax. Those are techniques that hundreds of thousands of men have employed and find helpful. I would try those before adding more supplements and chemicals. If all else fails, you could try adding something like Catuaba bark as Kpavel has mentioned.

as for recovering from PSSD i know you recommended Icarrin with Berberine, would just taking the berberine help me get my erections back? Im asking because I saw you mentioned that the horny goat can be taken with less frequency if your having sensitivity issues.

It will help on its own but they are both very synergistic. You should take both of them for at least 1-3 months for molecular changes to take place.

Update - I ran out of my one month supply of my Icariin and Berberine - i plan on buying more as soon as i get a chance -- Running has definitely helped with erections though.

You can stop taking them at any time, but running out does not mean the benefits will stop necessarily. Don't worry about it, stressing out will not help you, and just take care of what you can at this point - then get more when you can.

Thanks for the reminder to post Area - you have been a great source of hope and inspiration and I don't want to give up on my end of the bargain here.

So things were going well - erections were back to almost totally normal.

But my girl and i just broke off our 3 year relationship and this past week i have been a wreck - and my erections even with porn just went totally to crap again.

I am going to assume that it is the stress, lack of sleep, no eating properly brought on by the break up but that is where I am now.

I also realized that I had stopped eating fruits and I read online that I need flavanoids from them, so I had a bunch of fruit last night before bed and glad to say I at least had morning wood for the first time since the break up.

I am going to continue exploring diets that can help me out - as well as go back to taking berberine and icariin now that my ex is not taking all of my extra money lol.

I will follow up soon.

Any tips you can suggest would be great area! Thanks as always!

Breakups are always frustrating, but if you are still getting results from things like fruit, then you aren't far off from recovery.

This may be time to think about some personality edging, meaning try to find ways to make the stress of all of this easier. Some of it may include further lifestyle changes. Mindset changes, stuff like that.

Additionally I think you'd do well on a few things.

--> Ashwagandha (KSM-66), at least for a month so you can cope and get through easier - plus it helps lower Cortisol and increase Testosterone.
--> L-Theanine : same reason as above and it might help with mindfulness.
--> Creatine : Could help boost androgens and so you can easily decide and improve upon your own life and not worry about the past (she is the past at this point).

Women have changed mate, but both of you may just have had a loss of love (it happens), I don't know how or what happened but whatever you do - just focus on improving yourself (or rather maximizing yourself) for now. BUT, the trick is remembering that YOU ARE ALREADY above her. Smile

See you have to want to change for YOURSELF, not anyone elses perception. You may not be 100% like me but I think we have some similarities. So once you have a vision just stick with it, you already know you have the ability to recover. Very Happy
