Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
Having severe erectal dysfunction for the past month
From this study (2 weeks ago):
After having testosterone injections for about 4 months, received no relief from ED. However became short of breath and was later diagnosed with a paralyzed diaphragm. I believe the injections caused this problem.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Have noticed in the last 6 years I have lost most of the sensations around mastrabation and orgasam, and my ejaculate has markedly decreased.
