Libido is too high

24 year old female with an already considerable sex drive and have started taking testosterone enanthate for fitness/bodybuilding and now libido is uncontrollable to the point "it took me two weeks to make the time to post this". If I am not working (which I'm always distracted) or at the gym, I am unable to use my time as I use to such as TV, video games or being with friends, I didn't even get around to making breakfast until almost 5pm today. I am looking for a kind of supplement to suppress libido considerably without stopping my "personal enhancement supplements", switching to a weaker version or something that would diminish the benefits I am getting from working out.

Well,  I don't think you need to be worried about not having time to waste on TV or video games,  but certainly friends are an entirely different matter.  You need to make time for friendships.

I wonder if you could put some focus elsewhere besides your body building?  Maybe finding a passion in your life where you make a difference in the world would give you some valuable balance?  The happiest people are givers.  The unhappiest people are those who are completely self-focused.

I don't think you need yet another supplement.  I think you need to get off testosterone and begin living again,  with a real purpose.  

Best wishes.

I'm staying on the test cycles for the next three months until I reach my goals and I'm not at the gym all the time, no real benefits to workout more than 3-5 hours a week for muscle/strength building and as for focus elsewhere, I just don't have it, I know how to cope with a high libido but this is just ridiculous

I agree,  this is too much.  I can't tell if you're having sex,  or masturbating,  but doing that all day long so much that you haven't had breakfast until 5 p.m. is a waste of your time here on earth,  in my opinion.  

When you're old and facing your mortality,  you won't say boy I wish I masturbated more.  

Best wishes.

Which comes back to looking for a supplement, powder or pill that won't negate my test supplement that I can use for the next 3 months

You might want to consider that this may not be worth the trouble it's causing you. There are other hobbies in life that don't include ingesting chemicals into your body to alter your appearance or whatever.

My point is, at some point you're going to need to ask yourself what is the point of all of this and is it really worth it since it's causing you so many problems?

It's not so much a hobby than achieving an appearance that I want that is attainable. I've gone from a 6'3" tall and skinny girl who used to be called "Twiggy" to someone that can compete in a fitness competition at nearly 200 lbs. To continue this long term ould very much not be worth it however for just three more months, I believe it is worth it, I was just looking for something to make it a little easier.

To me, there seems to be a huge issue if you can't get around to making breakfast until 5pm.  In total honesty, I would speak to a psychologist.  It appears, in my opinion, that much more than an overactive libido is going on.  Sometimes too, we use things like our sex drive, to avoid life.  

Something seems amiss here and you need to be working with a doctor and psychologist in my opinion.  good luck

IE:  you think it is your sex drive but it could be a compulsion.  Different.  I think this is psychologically oriented.  See a psych.  good luck

Oh, and agree with the ladies.  If you are working out to this point, taking things that are altering your hormones, etc.  this is problematic.  I'd focus on career, being happy with you are (not needing hours of working out and drugs to achieve it), etc.  I think when it comes down to it, you'll be happier.  And living a more stable life.  good luck

Well, sounds like you want to have your cake and eat it too and in this instance you can't.  Stop using this medication immediately is my recommendation as you are risking your overall health.  Furthermore, I am not sure where you are purchasing or getting this medication from, aka anabolic steroids, but what you are doing is NOT legal, so I can't endorse someone purchasing or obtaining an illegal medication for the sole purpose of increasing muscle mass.

Playing with your health by taking medications that haven't been prescribed or approved by a physician for the sake of muscle bulk is not wise, nor is there anything to counteract its effects other than to stop taking it.  Educate yourself on anabolic steroids and the facts should be enough to convince you to stop completely as over time you will have more problems more serious than a sex drive in overdrive.  

Work with what mother nature has given you and be grateful and happy with what she has given you.

"Goingalittlecrazy" is what will and does happen when you are taking anabolic steroids.

Three months or using this drug for a short period of time can be just as dangerous as using it long term.  You are already having side effects that are VERY concerning.  You may win a competition or two, but what about your health?  

You mentioned something about being called names because of your natural build and I think that has spurred all this.  I really think you would benefit from seeking counseling about this.  Somehow the name-calling has pushed you to a point of obssession.

EDUCATE yourself.  Taking none would be ideal.
