View Full Version : Zinc DESTROYS my libido

Everytime I take zinc I lose my libido after about five days and develop complete erectile dysfunction. It made no sense since most guys report the opposite but then I read that zinc is an aromatase inhibitor, and the other symtoms I got in that week of taking zinc match low estrogen symptoms perfectly. After taking zinc for a week I also experience:

-dry skin and penis glans
-joints hurting (woke up on third day and couldn't move my neck without extreme pain)
-dehydration, constantly pissing
-insomnia, weak sleep
-anxiety
-flatter muscles, no pump in gym

All of these are symptoms of low estrogen. So my theory is that zinc is good for guys who already have high estrogen or aren't big responders to aromatase inhibitors. Be careful with zinc.

You sure you're taking zinc... I take it every day and don't have any of these issues. There's likely underlying reasonings you're pushing off on zinc.

That's very strange, I thought zinc was supposed to help sexual function.

What dosage?

I take 30 mg a day and have a very high libido.

Can confirm :(

It was the middle of winter and the air was dry. Why you gotta do me like that.






On a srs note, I take 50mg of Zinc Picolinate daily and don't have any of these problems... Sounds to me like you need to drink more water/improve your diet.
