What is your question?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

Sorry doc meant to send this.....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

Yes. Ejaculatuon within 3-5 days of the PSA test can falsely elevate it. You should refrain from ejaculation in this timeframe.

Most medical information states ejaculation can affect prolactin and dopamine but not testosterone levels which is the only thing I was getting measured for. I was not getting a PSA test simply a testosterone test. All Other docs I asked said the level would not have been affected by ejaculating the morning of the test..

No. Your ejacuating would not affect those levels. There is no need to get those retested.

Your doctors are right. The ejaculating will not affect those levels
