Hello,
I am not new here, being for some time and doing PE.
I'd to ask because despite of having quite low testosterone levels (slightly above the minimum) I am quite hairy (that I had to do laser hair removal for my back and anus) and I would like to have sex quite often.
However my will and my testosterone levels don't match up together. So how is it possible that I have so high libido and have so low testosterone?
I often have to jack off because I have the need, however if I suppress this by few days, the urge is not so strong anymore.

Regarding my PE, there is progress ;D

Testosterone is also the highest early in the morning and fades throughout the day. So depending on when you had your test done your levels could be quite higher than what showing. Before I started testosterone treatment mine was 178 at 10:30 in the morning well below the 300 to 1200 average. With a free testosterone level of two . Even with those low numbers I felt that I had a fairly high libido but was having performance issues.
Also as we age I testosterone levels get lower so it may have been quite high after puberty when you got here hairy, and now may be on the decline.

Are you noticing any negative consequences because of lower testosterone level ? Or are you simply just asking a question ?

Hmm I do not remember first numbers but it was more less 287 while range was 250-1000. The second check showed 357 with the same range. Both tests have been done in morning with few months, half year separation between.

I do not feel any negative consequences having so low levels but it catched my eye because my libido is quite high and levels shows I should be rather grandpa lol.

First, as mentioned, testosterone fluctuates a great deal during the day; this is one of the reasons why a 24-hour urine analysis provides a better sense of where you are.

Second, even if you are on the low end, libido is extremely complicated and complex; and it is exceedingly difficult to make generalizations (high testosterone does not invariably mean high libido and vice versa.)

For one thing, there are many other contributors to "libido" - neurotransmitters, DHT conversion, estrogens, etc.

For another thing, every person has their own hormonal "symphony" - where they are optimal. Some people simply don't require high levels of testosterone; I know huge and muscular dudes who naturally have very low testosterone.

And this latter point is why everyone should get a complete hormonal "snap shot" when they are at their optimum (say, when they're 18 year old) - so that when you're 40 you'll know where you should be.

And, finally, this why good TRT/HRT specialists don't treat lab results - which are only one piece of a highly complex and moving puzzle. If you feel fine, there's nothing to worry about/treat.

So that's fine. To be honest I would be much more worried if I had high testosterone as it is often related to balding (DHT and genetic test).
Maybe in the past (now I am 29) I had much higher testosteron thus I became so hairy, if I didn't remove it by laser I would still be but then it would be laugh to go on the beach :D
