    Today I have voluntarily start taking a drug to decrease my libido

    Nowadays I consider having a high libido a curse. No, I'm not an incel, I'm 33, I have already been married, and had enough sex experience. Nowadays I'm uninterested in pursuing women, I've grown tired of their games. And I have been taking care of this through masturbation which I have no pride to say it's done in an excessive manner.

    I have considered doing the more known chemical castration in the past, which is take a drug to greatly diminish testosterone (several options out there), but decided against it due to the severe side effects of having a low testosterone level.

    But more recently I found about aromatase inhibitors. There is published research indicating they greatly diminish male libido.
    They actually increase testosterone, although the increase is modest compared to the general drugs used for TRT. But it decreases estrogen conversion from testosterone, so it increases testosterone while decreasing estrogen.

    I've done my research and there are possible side effects, but in general, it's a safe drug. And I'm not taking going to take the typical dose people use daily for on label usage.

    Just this morning I had blood taken out to measure my Total Testosterone level, Estrogen (E2), and cholesterol panel (having it increased is a common side effect, but I have good levels). That will be my baseline.

    I'm going to use 0.5mg Anastrozole once daily for 2 weeks and I'm still deciding the regimen I'll adopt later on, likely 0.5mg twice a week.

    This is totally off-label use, typically this is used to treat breast cancer or to prevent it in high risk population. They take 1mg daily. Since it's also recommended for high risk populations, there are plenty of people taking this for years and years 1mg daily, so my dose is not unsafe at all.

    In about a month or so I'll measure just Estrogen (E2) again, my goal is to have it as low as possible within the acceptable range.

    And a few months down the road I'll repeat the same panel I did today.

    It's likely I'll only do this for a year or so, and try to slowly stop using it. I think my mindset itself will change having diminished libido for a period of time.

    I have done my research and read several papers, but I'm not posting proof of this here, do it on your own if you are curious or think this might interests you. And use sci-hub.se to read paywalled scientific papers.

    I'll keep this thread updated as time goes on. And if doesn't work out as planned, that's fine, I'll just give up on the idea.

    Iím aware that this is a pretty crazy idea, and I know most, if not all, members wonít be interested in doing it in themselves, but I think it might interest some few out there and the rest can enjoy it as a curiosity.

    I'm more in favor of building up the mental toughness to control and channel it without drugs. Of course, this isn't always easy but over time you can gain more and more success with just strengthening the will and finding creative and athletic outlets. I wish you well whatever path you take to wrangle the beast.

    Thanks.
    The idea here is to do this a starting point as a bridge and stop with it later on. I think it will be enough to get used to it.
    I have tried through sheer willpower and it hasn't work, for sex I find it a lot easier, I haven't done is 3 years, but I just masturbate to deal with that. I mentioned I'm 33, and since around 12 I have either been masturbating twice daily or having sex at a similar frequency when with someone. It's rare I skip some days and probably the most I have gone without it all this years is around a week at most.

    OP- This is some messed up stuff right here. Saying you have had enough sex. Then saying you whack to excess. Chemical castration was a consideration of yours? Till you came up with this insanity?

    You need way more help than we can provide. Your libido is the least of your issues.

    Obviously you posted this for others opinions. Here you go.

    I'm up for hearing opinions, that's fine, but it won't change its course.

    I have tried this already and it didn't work out. I see this as a temporary bridge to get to this mental place.

    What happened to the original post? I read it once, but donít see it now. I donít remember the detail on why you want to stop your sex drive, but there are other ways to deal with that other than an LTR or marriage (Iím sure youíre well aware of that)

    I would not be in such a hurry to slow your testosterone down. It happens fast enough on its own.

    Me2, this thread is glitched by new NSA software that can censor and delete anything across the entire internet!

    It was only a matter of time.

    What I'm taking doesn't lower test, it actually increases it.
    I have no idea what happened to it, I think the mods thought best to delete it.
    Those who want to read it check it here. Since it was censored I won't be posting here anymore:

    I never got a chance to see the O.P.

    If the O.P. to a thread is going to be deleted, may as well delete the whole friggin' thread otherwise we (and lurkers) haven't a clue about further comments. which leaves things up to speculation and conspiracies.

    BTW, I heard a rumour that dinosaurs and aliens were mentioned in the O.P.

    Is there any truth in this?

    I've come around this website for some years, registrations was always closed.
    A few weeks ago I came back again, and see it's open. I do it and it requires email confirmation, which never arrives.
    I do it again yesterday with a different email. Ok, it finally work let's make this thread.
    Make a thread. It requires mod approval.
    12 hours laters it gets approved.
    I made one reply on this thread that triggered mod approval.
    I tried it again a few hours since it wasn't still appearing and right after the post appears, it gets autodeleted right before my eyes.
    Now the main thread post is gone.

    Great first impressions... It's likely this is being done so you don't have to deal with people talking shit about MGTOWs, but this place just isn't for me then, I just don't like micromanaged forums. And that's fine, those who enjoy it were I wish you well.

    Re: Today I have voluntarily start taking a drug to decrease my libido

    Unboxxed told me Yuri's original work yesterday had somehow got auto moderated, probably for length. We weren't keen about serious medical advice being given out by a non-professional, so we left the message in the moderation bucket till we asked our fearless leader for advice. He was ok with it and Unboxxed approved the moderated and shortened post you saw yesterday.

    Somehow, the message was back in the mod bucket today, and we're not sure why. Yuri edited his post today and that might have had something to do with it. Is it still gone? Mods see messages members can't, so I don't know if you guys have it or not.

    Hi Yuri.,

    Please know registrations have never been closed on this site. Maybe you are thinking of HQ where they periodically closed registrations?

    Email confirmation was eliminated 08/21/2022 and it seems you realized this when you were allowed to create a post, even if there was delay in its visibility.

    You initial post went into auto-moderation yesterday (probably for length as your first post, that happens) and we had concerns for its content. It could be controversial. Specifically, you were providing what could look like unprofessional medical advice in these pages. What you are offering is beyond just saying taking vitamin pills. The delay in making your OP appear was because I first contacted Jagr, the owner of this site, to ask if he would allow it. He said yes, so I let it through. Today, you edited your OP so that is what threw it back into moderation making it invisible again.

    Two other shorter posts from you went into moderation, not sure why. I have now let all three posts back into view.

    So, we have a combination of things going on here. First, a newbie's lengthy first post auto-moderating. Second, the subject material viewed as possibly controversial, and no Intro from the newbie (you), so there was a delay in approving the post. Third, your editing the first post threw it back into moderation. This is standard process. I have no clear explanation for why your subsequent short posts went into moderation as no mods on duty have indicated they were involved.

    And now we add to that your interpretation of events and your departure statements.

    Upon seeing this explanation of events, if you still plan to leave us permanently, please let me know and I will close your account.

    Thank you.

    Re: Today I have voluntarily start taking a drug to decrease my libido

    Now that things have been sorted and I have read your O.P. I’m beginning to understand your issues.

    We (at least most of us) are not medical professionals and cannot give you advice other than general observations, and well intentioned or not these may be misleading.

    So, taking this into consideration, here’s my tuppence worth:

    Excessive masturbation is (IMO) psychological in nature and not physical. Looking for remedies in the physical world such as drugs that affect your libido just isn’t going to cut it.

    My only advice to you or others in your position is to be patient, it will pass.

    On the other hand, if it is disrupting your life you may need to seek professional counselling, something we cannot and have no wish to offer.

    Jeez fuck . you'll feel like a mess if you would go this route. there is a reason men feel way better on higer(er) test.

    I'm going to use 0.5mg Anastrozole once daily for 2 weeks
    Arimidex and any other AI is no fucking joke on your system dude, and is used to run besides AAS. I have literally no clue why you would run this as a stand-alone. you need hardship, not drug up to cope with a problem you have cuz guess what, your issue remains when coming off AI's and believe me, you wont run this your whole live because you'll run into side effects.

    Is there a reason you can't just jack off and spare yourself the drugs and their possible side effects?

    I think you will find that you don't actually crave the sex, you want the orgasm.
