How long for my libido to return?

I started using progest-e and got a bit too aggressive.  I'm a 25 year old male.  When will my libido return? I stopped it two days ago.

Idk a couple drops, twice a day for 3-5 days.  i didnt think i was taking that much.
Peat took enough to knock himself out.  Many others have taken high doses.  I doubt its anything permanent.  Ive taken more than you for longer and didn't notice anything except a lucid state.  Just lay off till the morning wood comes back like Dewitt says.
I think it would help if you give us more details.

When did your libido diminish? During the intake of progest-e, before or after?
What was the purpose of your progest-e intake?
What was your hormonal situation before the intake? Did you have blood work done?
How exactly is your libido now? If you feel comfortable answering, it would be helpful to know how often per day you feel the urge to have sex/masturbate and if you experience morning wood. The latter in combination with sexual urges in the morning has anecdotically proven to be a good objective evaluation for overall libido. Possibly because it is strongly influenced by the circadian rhythm of steroid production.
