From this study (1 year ago):
Overall: Diabetes stays under 120, testosterone levels remain low for age (48, but testosterone levels of 90 year old man). Atypically small penis, testes often recede so that the scrotum is flat and tight. Bi-sexual with periodic gender issues (desire to be feminine). Married, two children and no family issues to include sexual oddities, wife is supportive.
I am reluctant to bring up sexual and gender issues to Doctor, but have the feeling that gender drift (feelings), small penis and receding testicles and attraction to both sexes (including transgendered males with feminine qualities and penis). I know that all of this makes me rather unusual in terms of societal norms, but this is an honest assessment to the best of my ability. I started becoming sexually active at 13 years old with males first and later (15) with females. I desire only a relationship with a female or shemale (preferable but not realistic so I don't dwell on it).
Despite gender struggles from 14 to present I joined the US Army and went Airborne and Special Forces, spending a majority of my adult life (even unitl present) as an operator in Special Forces (albeit my age is making that more and more difficult).
I'm looking for a medical opinion that takes in current health conditions and issues, sexual history and other factors that are tell tale signs of a condition that I am unaware of.
Me on Jan, 4, 2013:
Forgot to mention that I have one son who has only one testicle but is not infertile. He was operated on at 3 to determine is it was an undescended testicle, however no trace of a second testicle was found. In his 20s he fathered a female child and still no trace of second testicle.
From this study (2 years ago):
Is there any evidence that the drug combo I am taking could be contributing to erectile dysfunction?
From this study (3 years ago):
Dangerous, dangerous drug. For me, anyway. After experiencing erectile dysfunction (you might say overfunction that wasn't socially acceptable) I took it haphazardly and without supervision for six months--trying to retain the quit-nicotine benefits while keeping the erections at bay. A doc would have gotten me off it quick, I'm convinced, but that doesn't change the outcome. I didn't even associate the drug with the psychological problems at the time, although I was certainly aware that I was depressed and had lost my marbles--enough to consider checking into an institution. At the time, I thought it was simply my time to lose my mind and didn't connect it with the drug until four months after stopping taking it. The resulting depression, from events that phase helped precipitate, lasted more than a year, perhaps more than two years.
