Over the last 6 months I've noted decreasing libido and general interest in sex. I'm 35. I have a girlfriend and while we had sex 4x/week the first two years of dating, since moving in together it's around 1x/month, a dramatic decline. She goes on frequent business trips and my libido remains low, so I don't think it's anything to do with cohabitation or attraction.
I have noticed that morning erections used to be near daily but now are very weak or non-existent. I still lift weights and exercise every day for 60 mins, take vitamin D supplements, eat walnuts, brazil nuts, pistachios, get daily sun exposure and sleep 8+ hours/night. I've noticed getting 50-100 new gray beard hairs, starting out on my chin but extending to the rest of my beard now, though my head remains grayless. I've also noticed general decrease in muscle mass and overall feelings of strength and vitality. I'm going to see an endocrinologist and get tested but am getting very depressed -- I feel this is a symptom of nascent cancer or something bad, as my male friends don't have grays or don't have any issues in bed. We also don't have kids yet and if this is a terminal illness I don't think we should, but it's in the back of my mind and scaring me. Any guidance or thoughts would be appreciated!
