Saw Palmetto Before And After Masterbating/sex?

Recommended Posts

hello everybody! i havent been on this site for a while haha.

But anyways, I have a question regarding masterbation/sex and acne.

I know 100% that masterbating causes me to break out. IT HAPPENS EVERY TIME. usually 4 days later.

So i have to force myself never to look at porn or anything sexual, and it sucks because Im 18, usually people that are 18 have all kinds of sex. But here i am forcing myself not too. And it sucks.

SO HERES MY REAL QUESTION.

I know that the main thing that causes people to break out from masterbating is DHT. When you masterbate, DHT if formed which causes you to break out. or me atleast, -______-

AND i know that Saw palmetto reduces DHT in the body.

So if i take maybe 1 tablet before i masterbate, and 1 tablet after, ONLY ON DAYS I MASTERBATE (once every 2 weeks or so), will this keep me from breaking out? Or at least keep the breakouts minimal?

im scared to take saw palmetto because i heard it makes some people brake out, in some people it cures their acne, and just a bunch of mixed reviews about it.

So does this sound like a good idea? or am i going to grow breats becuase of saw palmetto??

THANKS!!!

DHT can also be increased due to poor diet choices. just so you know.

i read once on a weight lifting blog of a graph regarding DHT and testosterone and they both finally spike after 7 days and after that things are supposed to returned to normal, however in that time span there are the higher highs than before. My advice is to try it and see what happens however just know ther are alternate therapies and practicing good glucose management also helps manage DHT spikes. Excerise does so much good in regards to hormones, insulin resistance, etc.

As far as this actually "working" im doubtful as its only going to temproraly mask the problem not even all of it. Since DHT increases oil production why not supplement a probiotic instead as its the bacteria that thrive in the excess oil that causes problems.

Thanks for the reply!

And as far as diet, i would say my diet it in tip top shape aha, I workout 2-3 times a week trying to build muscle, so i eat almost nothing but fruits, chicken, turkey, TONS OF AVOCADOS, and brown rice. :)

i will try this, probably gonna go buy some tommarow, come home, take a regular dosage, "do my thing", take another right after, and then see if i breakout 4 days later as usual, based on those results, ill see what i do next :)

@Binga, maybe yea, its not that expensive, and they should last me a long time if I'm only taking them a couple days a week, but that's if my plan even works lol

masturbation weakens the penile nerves and may inflame the prostate gland which can have serious long term consequences.

^ Say you had a really important event coming up that you had to be clear for. (Wedding, prom, big date, ect) If you knew orgasms were causing your acne, you could use that knowledge to clear yourself up a few weeks before the big event. It can be used as a temporary tool, as well as a lifestyle. I have personally found that using the Karezza method lets me have my cake and eat it too... so to speak ;) It all depends on how motivated you are to achieve what you want in life. I've kept myself relatively clear for the past decade by breaking all the rules and taking huge risks, because staying clear was always my number-one priority.

Fair point but i've had for acne 16 years, it just don't bother me anymore.

I control it with B.P and to a limited degree with balanced eating. It doesn't control me and it doesnt affect my mental state.

Fact is i'm not gonna stop having sex with my girlfriend just because the hormonal release MAY contribute to a spot. Life is for living not to be dominated by a skin complaint. smile.png
