Resolved Question:

.doctor i recently had blood tests to measure my free and total testosterone out of interest.Would ejaculating through masterbation before a blood test affect my free and total testosterone scores in anyway? I can't remember how close masterbation occurred before having bloods taken...would it matter or influence them? Scores solid and vhappy...just wanted to make sure they are still accurate. Most online stuff says that ejaculation doesnt influence testosterone blood results but just wanted to be Def sure!thanks for help.

This is Dr. David

masturbation and ejaculation before blood test for testosterone has only a tiny effect on your blood testosterone level.

the amount of effect would be tiny and negligible.

if your testosterone levels are normal, I would trust them and not worry about your masturbation before

let me know if you have questions.

Thanks for replying doc my total testosterone was 720 ngdl with reference range 219-906 ngdl. My free testosterone was 15.42 pgml reference range 4-30 pgml. The doc said these are good very healthy scores and nothing to worry about. Would that also be your opinion?also in terms of pgml or ngdl how much influence would ejaculation roughly have on these.....If it's possible to give that answer!would it increase or decrease the results?thanks for all your help :)

You are absolutely right I am a terrible worrier!hahaha! So Basically my levels are good and healthy regardless of whether the ejaculation had any effect or not due to the effect of ejaculation being so minimal? Also I forgot to say I am 29 years old are these are still considered a healthy score for my age?
Thank you again for your help it's much appreciated and I have no more questions honest!
