    Anecdotally, and I don't know if there's any medical science/opinion behind this, but the overwhelming majority of guys I know that were on gear ( test as base at 250mg+ per week ) at time of insemination fathered girls. Seems to be a common shared 'bro science' opinion to those I've talked to as well.

    "The number of men using testosterone to try to boost their energy, sexual function, and mobility has increased in the past two decades,"

    Here is the thing. Tongkat Ali/Longjack is advertised as a testosterone supplement, although it is not. (it is an aphrodisiac) But! It does give you more energy and increases your libido.

    So although it is kind of false advertisement, its effect is still the same, what we expect TST to do for us! Thus the article might be technically right about certain supplements but practically still could be wrong...

  5. I think the piece was referring specifically to TRT. As for the "natural" alternatives:

    I think I'll stick with the advice given at the end of this piece:

    Before turning to exotic substances, consider improving your health. As reported in the American Journal of Medicine in 2007, erectile dysfunction is highly correlated with poor physical health and inactivity: More than 50 percent of diabetics, 44 percent of those with high blood pressure, and 26 percent of subjects watching three or more hours of television per day had trouble achieving an erection either "sometimes" or "always."

    The side effects of diet and exercise include better self-confidence, which could be the best aphrodisiac yet.

    Not to Pekelo in particular, feel free to look up studies, but the natural testosterone levels of men have diminished dramatically over the last few decades, read a new study last week about how it even reduced noticeably in younger men over the last 2 decades

    Not sure about test at physiological test levels, but it is very common to feel more tired than usual while on gear, many have had to drop out some PED or another because of lethargy

  9. Why were you on the PED? Is it really worth the risk for a recreational lifter? Especially since, as I understand it, it's something you have to take indefinitely if you want the attendant benefits to continue.

    Apparently I answered yes to that question, but it's probably not the best course of action if you are strictly considering physical health issues
