PSA blood test

    Hey guys,

    How much of an effect does using aneros stimulators have on raising the PSA number of a blood test? I have had doctors tell me that about 2 wks are needed after a DRE for blood antigen levels to return to normal. Would it be the same, more, or less for using aneros stimulators? My Urologist is mildly cocncerned with my PSA levels and I have had biopsies in the past because of it. NOT THE MOST FUN I'VE EVER HAD! Does anyone out there have any experience with this. Thanks in advance and good vibes to all.

    i would think the aneros and a dre would have the same effect.

    that said, if you do a search for PSA on this forum, i think you will find guys who have very low PSAs even after using the aneros.

    in my case i had an elevated one, layed off the aneros for a couple of weeks confident that it would improve, and the next one was even higher.

    in sum, to be safe, lay off, though i am not sure it makes any difference.

    I've had a few PSA tests since using the Aneros and have only had the very slightest change while using it - like .1 or .2 change. For best results though I've heard it makes sense to wait 3 to 5 days between use and your test.
