Erection post orchiectomy - Help, she's rearing her head again


swallow

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

(Hope I am not flouting any community rules here, let me know if so please)😬

 

It seems I've taken a year off (Its been busy) now since I last posted (How time flies)😮

 

Sorry to expose on private matters...

 

I've recently had an orchiectomy (about 6 months++ ago or last July). I feel quite liberated with only the missy still needing the tuck now.

 

My doctor has also been happy with my (VERY low) T levels and my estrogen is way in the female range. So we took out the Spiro and reduced my Estrogen intake to absolute minimal. We are trialing this for 3 months, I will check my levels next month to see if there are any differences.

 

With all that, I was hoping for a reduction in the size of the missy down there but thus far she looks fairly similar to before (she isn't by any means large but she isn't categorically petite either)

 

Recently, I have had a couple of mornings where she has risen (undesirably!) 🤨

 

So my two questions :

 

1) Is this normal to be able to have erection(s) after an orchi? I have to qualify of course this has been an infrequent event but still...it perturbs me considerably.😥

2) Could this be bc I dialed back on the E too soon?

 

And following on from this has anyone found benefit remaining with a higher dose of E for a stretch after an orchi to further any feminization or reduction of activity below?🤔

 

I could be mistaken of course but I don't seem to recall as much 'activity' when I was on the slightly higher dose... but my doctor said there should still be little activity now anyway since I do not have the naughty pair anymore...

 

Am I allowed to ask these things? I've done so anyway silly me but just curious if anyone has any similar experiences?

 

I was dearly hoping she would just shrink like a violet and reduce to somewhat near pre-pubescent minimum 🙏as at the moment, I am not considering any further intervention down there (I was hoping to live with her in an odd couple modus vivendi)😐

 

Maybe I am being entirely impatient?😒

 

Respectfully

 

Swallow

I did not have my orchiectomy until the time of my GCS /  Vaginoplasty, but while I was 6 months on E, I did have "wet dreams" that finally ended up quitting after a couple of real dillies that actually put me on the floor from the bunk from a night panic.  I would definitely let your Endo or Urologist know about this though.  What you are describing is not common, but not unknown.

I didn't have an orchie as such, but of course an orchie is part of vaginoplasty or vulvoplasty, which I did have.  Even though my external part has been removed, the erectile tissue that is left internally is still fully functional.  Things have settled down for me now, four years later, but I frequently used to get "erections" that felt exactly like they used to with my original equipment.  I am still likely to get one every 26 days or so.  😮

Very true in my case as well, I should have mentioned.

Hi and thanks for the feedback!

 

I guess I am a bit disassociated with her (or at least I thought for a while I could be)🙄

 

Honestly I have not even really even looked down there since my operation.

 

So maybe its just a way of getting my attention.

 

I like to cope by thinking of myself as a sort of special hybrid creature (I'm Sagittarius) but sometimes, it's just hard when the unwanted activity brings about feelings you prefer not to have.😔

 

Hopefully I will receive good news on my levels with the blood works next month.😐

      I don't think people realize how dangerous this man is. Yeah, he has a vendetta against us.  His trans-daughter dissed him.  Then his ex dated Chelsea Manning.  He made "cis" an official slur out of spite. He is an authoritarian, and he interfered in the Ukraine war - because he could.  Our government has let themselves become dependent on his satellites  and rockets. His megalomania dwarfs DJT's. Just my opinion of course.

      The Fathers provided for a way to update the constitution, and it has been used in the past.  They weren't as stupid as some of their supposed modern followers.  As soon as it was passed, they added the "Bill of Rights."

      @Ashley0616Hii : P I hope it works better out this time. Imho I think taking it very slow and without expectations works best. or like thinking about any outcome and dont expecting a specific one. Maybe you learn more about her and she is just not like you thought. Maybe I am just super slow and picky Idk but everytime I was going fast or let me being rushed it failed miserably.

      As an engineer I was invited to a climate change conference decades ago. They had a very nice model posted covering them last 130,000 years showing a gradual warming since the end of the last ice age and a small spike starting about the beginning of the industrial revolution. They were absolutely correct in their data, we are experiencing climate change and things will get grim here shortly (relatively speaking).    The data missing in the presentation were ice core samples dating back about 400,000 years showing a natural cycle that earth has been experiencing for about 4 billion years. The last ice age showed data that almost mimics identical to our present data, and humans were just emerging and still cave dwellers.    Not to say that humans are not effecting climate, even if a coyote pees on a bush in the desert the micro environment changes. We should be respectful to our planet.    But there is NO amount of legislation that will STOP climate change. It's going to happen no matter what. Rather than spending trillions of dollars trying to STOP climate change perhaps we should be trying to figure out how to survive the inevitable.    Many engineers at the conference came onboard with me, but needless to say we were never invited to attend the meetings after than. It just didn't fit the agenda of the presenters.

      You can look at it this way: the elected officials are more focused on obtaining and staying in power than passing anything. Given that the most recently passed amendment was regarding legislative compensation and that was proposed in 1789 says much about troublesome amending it can be. Very little is written into the Constitution, the "unalienable rights" have been left to exist in statutes and code. Dithering life in a complex modern times to "micromanaging" certain things, such as gas stoves, comes down to the live and let live policy--does the existence of something harm others more than the personal liability one maintains by owning something. One could say they fall into the same category as smoking; it's not just the smoker harming themself. I'm not advocating the elimination of natural gas stoves, I have only read cursorily about it, but one must think past the individual when it comes to laws of the land.   As for what JD Vance stands for, did stand for, now stands for? is a question. I know little about him, other than his stance on marriage. His proposals would allow marriages to endure domestic violence because of the "sanctity" of marriage within a subset of a religion he maintains. He's willing to maritally hot box Americans, to death in some cases, simply because of his religious values. Sure, many share similar values, but not everyone--and definitely not a majority. Also, he's "changed his views" on a Trump presidency because it's politically expedient for him to acquire power. Going from being a "Never Trumper" to signing up to be his VP displays a type of moral bankruptcy I cannot really fathom.

      When he launched that Tesla into space, he should have been the one sitting in the driver's seat.

      Strange enough my Facebook account was permanently closed due to "inciting hate and violence" when I used to post President Reagan video speeches a lot. 🤔

      I'd  prefer to go back farther than Reagan.  More like Calvin Coolidge. Although interestingly enough, Reagan was somewhat inspired by Coolidge and had a portrait of him hanging in the White House.
