Abilify erectile dysfunction

Postby mBPD » Tue Oct 19, 2021 7:12 pm

Hello
I am on psychiatric meds for 16 years now.
I was given antipsychotics before, during and after hospitalization, but i would eventually stopped taking it.
I was on antidepressants for 10years with no psychosis, but they completely killed my libido.
I never had erectile problems.

2019 i was hospitalized and given Abilify for rhe first time, and i was taking it...since the erections started to get weaker, my junk shrunk, i ejaculate almost nothing, orgasm is almost non existent.
Now im on 5mg Abilify daily and...neutered.

Anyone have a clue what to do?
How to restore sexual function and size of testees and the reast, and which antipsychotic to take to be able to function?
I tried viagra and similar and every supplement there is.
Nothing helps a bit.
I tried Wellbutrin with Abilify, it made it worse.

Endocrinologist diagnosed hypogonadism and hyperprolactinemia but sent me back to my shrink, urologist says he cant do anything, shrink says i shouldnt have a problem on 5mg...but Abilify hit me sexually while other antipsychotics had temporary effect, problem wozld dissapear once i stopped taking them. I stopped Abilify for 9 months and was still incapable.
Please help

Hello, and welcome! Well since you mention hypogonadism, how's your testosterone levels?

Got the new bloodwork, testosterone is low, 15 out of 9-35 range, and prolactin is high but within the acceptable range.
5mg Abilify worked, hormones are within the healthy parameters, but im still all shrunk and incapable.

You're okay on estrogen levels, then?

It's my understanding that with enough time, Male to Female transsexuals will experience not only loss of erections, but eventual shrinking of the penile tissue, when on long-term estrogen therapy. I could be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure that's what I've read- at one time, I vaguely (and casually) considered transitioning to female, or at least, female-ish, and so that's always remained a subject that fascinates me, and it seems to me I recently read that about taking estrogen. Of course, it could be that the other tests rule estrogen levels out by deduction, but it might be worth asking about, just in case it's something that's been overlooked. I'm not sure what, if anything, could cause elevated estrogen in men, short of actually taking the stuff, but since all of us have some levels of hormones associated with the opposite sex, I'd think it's worth looking into, especially if you feel as if your penis has actually shrunk.

Added to add that you'd think there'd be breast enlargement go along with that, but maybe not. Can't hurt to ask, anyway.
