    Just to add, if you are getting up several times a night to pee but do not having any other symptoms during the day then it's probably your sleep is not sound. When you sleep sound your brain turns off the "have to pee" sensation and then when you wake up in the morning you go piss. If you aren't sleeping well, then this mechanism doesn't fully kick in. So make sure you don't have apnea and stuff.

    You can also train yourself to have to piss more. Like if you work in an office environment and get bored a lot and go piss more you'll find you'll need to piss more often until you break that habit. I call that "office bladder." lol.

    To answer poll. I don't have symptoms but I worry about them since I am getting up there in age.

    If you have sleep apnea it will increase your urine output so you will pee more frequent at night.
    Its not that you are not sleeping deep enough.
    When you stop breathing your heart works harder to compensate for it.
    When your heart works harder your other organs works harder too.
    Result is more frequent night urination.
    When I started to use a cpap machine I stopped pissing so often.
    I still get up once during the night, usually early morning around 5am or so.
    My sleep apnea doc commented on this last time he read my machine data.

    I've had instances when on cycle, I'd make a BM. As it slowly pushed out & up against my prostate, I'd feel some kind of small discharge from my penis. It was seamen!? Also when on cycle my ejaculate becomes like a semi-solid!??!! Weird. Instead of mopping up a load with a tee shirt, I pick it up, drop it on shirt or towel then "mop" the remaining semisolid mess that's left it rolls up like dead skin!!! I know a few bros it happens to. Just throwing it out to see if any other Bro's experienced this or any thing like it?? The 1-2 shaft fulls of seaman that the hard BM 's push out is the weirdest!!! No orgasm, unfortunately, lol but def is what it is. When on TRT dose never happens, as my prostate issues subside quite a bit too.....

    Never had the BM "issue", but I did have some strange looking ejaculate starting about 6 months prior to my cancer diagnosis...Stay on top of it brother...Hopefully you are having both the digital exam AND the PSA BW being done by your Doc...My prostate was only slightly enlarged during my digital exam and my PSA test was at the high end of normal...If I hadn't pushed the Doc. into sending me to a Urologist who did some more thorough examinations, I'd be dead today...

    You should run a "lava lamp"! Lol. Run a long ester test, then run trenA @ 50-100mg's ED.. mixed with [email protected] 50-100mgs a day. (I'd start with 50/50. Maybe up it to 75/75 or 75/50. Tren/winny. Only like 2:50-300 test E or cyp. Or could do test prop with other ED shots...
    Lava lamps look cool as hell, awesome inject! Though usually some minor PIP.... I use my delts, rotating back & fourth.... I know boys who can't walk after a 1 Pin in the glute!!!!, so idk, never consider myself a freak, maybe it's this other cat!! I like lava lamps I was just runnin winny & tren a. Plus like 500 test e or sust. (Don't remember for sure). I loved it!!

    I was kinda chuckin it up to my androgen level being sooo high. Like I mentioned I am in TRT , & when I take my prescribed dose I have virtually none of these problems. Nor the BM thing too. Like Ya said its like mid cycle, it's Viagra time + weird things occur... Lol. Thanks for you honest candor!

    Not cancer,(I hope!). I saw an oncologist for high RBC's. He ran a shit ton of blood work, my platelets and iron levels are through the roof. So he gave me a "phlebotomy" lol, phlebotomy is med term for slicing a vein... They basically Drew about a pint of blood and threw it out with the medical waste... He said I should do this 2 to 3 times a year. What a dumbass I'm just going to go donate blood, fix myself and help my fellow man at the same time! When I mentioned it to the doc, this idiot said "you're on testosterone, what if a woman gets it? she'll get hairy and horny!"!!!???? What a ****ing idiot!!!

    i didn't read all the threads but wanted to add my 2cc. MD put me on Rapaflo.....that shiat freaked me out with the Retrograde Ejaculation. Don't mean to be disrespectful or to graphic......but here I am long stroking this incredible lady.....and yes....I am about to explode....I asked where does she want it...and she said on my azz.....so i pull out to oblidge......and nothing comes out my love muscle....but it feels like it is coming out.....this shiat freaked me out. the Urologist warned me about this...i just didn't think it would happen.

    so I called my urologist...and said WTF.....he told me that i would urinate my semen out. I said this is not the kind of birth control i wanted.

    so then we did flomax .....that shiat shut down my nasal passages.....I have sleep apnea....and use a Cpap at night....so I couldn't breath with the Flomax...

    Today, I am on 5mg of Cialis. this is the dose for BPH. no adverse issues....not sure how well it is helping with the urinating. he said give it 1-2wks.....and I am approaching week 2 now.


    This getting old stuff is for the birds.....

    Estrogen (E2) has been shown to promote prostrate proliferation. There are many estrogen receptors (ERα & ERβ) in the prostrate, which explain why serum estrogen does not necessarily need to be high to cause BPH. For some reason (unknown at this time), as men get older E2 levels become higher. Increasing T would increase aromatization to E2 and higher DHT amounts.
    If your case is mild, it is possible that increased intake of isoflavones may help. Isoflavones act like a SERM and bind to ERs much more weakly than E2, but the isoflavones are 3 X likely to circulate in the system than E2. These are easily found in soy products, think tofu. Some studies have shown Asian men have a 50% reduction in prostrate cancer rates and it is thought to be from higher soy ingestion.
