Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome (POIS)

Good question. Concerning the pro's, I don't know if more O's will make your resistance to the allergic reaction stronger or that it doesn't matter. The con is that you probably still experience (hopefully less) POIS effects like eczema / upset stomach / exploded brain that I always get, and I know that's not a good thing. Anyway very encouraging your desensitisation scheme is faster than expected. One of my friends had done hay fever desensitisation for 3 year. He said that after one year he could notice a big effect (not so much in first months though).
Next time I will ask the doctor. I think he will say: do as normal. Not more and not less.
In this scheme also after 1 year there will be normally  big effect. I hope that that will be the case at me. I can't wait.

I know! POIS free life sounds like paradise. Anyway, based on what did they decide to accelerate your scheme? Did they look at the skin reaction, did they do blood work or something else?

On base of research. Not on me. But on other patients. I don't know what kind of research. I was already happy that I could make a jump in the scheme.

Hello am kinda new here and i suffer from this condition. I just wanted to know how i can get started in the DESENSITIZATION treatment. I am a medical assistant so i know how to give shots.

Am kinda embarrassed to ask the doctor i work with about my condition. Maybe one day i will. But i need to find more information about this condition first.

Thanks
Welcome.
I would go to an allergist in your city. If he/she can't help you, look at the database of Daveman and Demo if there is a doctor in your country who is willing to help against POIS. My doctor said that DESENSITIZATION is not so common in the US. In Europe it's used more.

Hey guys, thought I might pop in for a quick hello. Hope things are going coming along nicely.

Things haven't been going too well for me, for some strange reason I've had lingering POIS symptoms for months, I have a foogy head nearly all the time, I've been putting a lot of thought into POIS and my beleif lies in, this being a semen allergy. Have no choice but to abstain and hope I get some releif soon :(

I go to see Dr. Goldmeirer in a few days, not particularly looking forward to it as feel pretty low and dumb, thanks to these POIS symptoms and can't really think properly add that to it being a 5 hour return journey by car and 10 hours by bus :(((

I just learnt something very interesting, the Hauge is NOT very far from where I am, if nothing works out with Dr. Goldmierer, then hopefully I can get on the list to see Dr. Walderinger team.

Green, sorry to hear that. I was down too the last year. Now I am feeling better. But the negative effect of feeling better (I mean out of POIS) is that you want more O.'s. :)
Then I feel bad and then I don't have the need for an O.

Well dr. Goldmeier is pretty far from you. I hope that he can help you! Good luck!

Reminder: "Strange Sex": the POIS Cable-TV episode!  Airs this upcoming Sunday, (May 22nd) at 10pm EST on The Learning Channel (TLC).

I'm interviewed about my ordeal with severe POIS and subsequent surgery to solve it. There is a thread on the new Forum called "Animus Solution" under "Alternative Treatments" which may be a good place to discuss this afterward.



Thanks, Animus, for being our POIS FORUM CELEBRITY!!

Animus: is it also 10pm for CST and PST? (Midwest, West Coast)

Green, I'm VERY sorry to hear this, but if it's any consolation you are in close proximity to 2 of the MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE POIS PHYSICIANS IN THE WORLD.

More importantly, you are ACTING on it!

Very best wishes!!!

Yes, it is a good idea, but I've decided to delete the blog for a while, because my health isn't so good and I don't think I could handle it. Maybe at a later date. I think it is a wiser idea if I can say so.
I hope there is no problem. Thank you for appreciations.

Just an idea:
Maybe when newbielink:http://www.poiscenter.com [nonactive] website will be on, we can translate it to other languages, including Romanian, because we are all from a lot of countries. To have a single centralised place for the POIS comunity. It could be better instead of separate blogs, sites, and forums. We could then separate it into national centers. But it is just an idea.


PS. I've talked with newbielink:http://www.bolirareromania.ro/ [nonactive] (Romanian National Alliance For Rare Diseases), and they support me. More exactly with prof. dr. Maria Puiu (Medical Genetics). She is vicepresident of RONARD. I'll come with updates as soon as I'll have them. These day she is busy.
Also dr. Nicolae Calomfirescu responded to an e-mail I've sent to him saying that I am an "unique and extremely rare case" and that he has no experience with these cases. He is in ESSM together with Dr.Waldinger

NOTE: I've opened a newbielink:http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=97.0 [nonactive] on the other forum for information about POIS in Romania.

Best wishes.

Did someone of you used Roaccutane/Accutane against acne? It also know as Isotretinoin? I had that 10 years ago against acne. It is a very heavy medicine and doctors warned me. But I asked and asked for it, because it was the only medicine which could get the acne get away. It is bad for the liver. It could be that my hormones were messed up by this medicine and caused POIS.

Van, my two sons both used it without problems. My dermatologist reassured me and my wife that there is no problem with Accutane as long as it is used cautiously. But there have been problems reported, and we were very concerned.

I read this quote in the abc news link demo posted:

"Interestingly, some research suggests that women who have been exposed to dogs, then go on to have their first sexual encounter with a man, can develop this seminal allergy."

I was bitten by a dog when I was 7 years old. Anyone else been bitten by a dog? I doubt this could cause POIS, but who knows.

Yes, It's listed on the TLC website at this link http://tlc.discovery.com/tv-schedules/series.html?paid=2.1213.56481.39612.4

Look for the "Weight for it & Desperate Measures" episode. The brief summary is pasted below. The show pairs 2 stories together. I am "Frank" in the second half of the show. Pairing me with this other case is just how they do it. When I get the hard copy I'll probably edit out that part if possible!

May 22, 10:00 pm
(30 minutes)
   
Strange Sex
Weight for It & Desperate Measures
TV-MA

For Donna and Phillipe, food is the ultimate aphrodisiac. Phillipe fulfills his sexual fantasies by feeding Donna and watching her gain weight. Frank becomes ill after the act of sex, but how far is he willing to go to cure his mysterious illness.

POIS at ABC News website!
http://abcnews.go.com/Health/sex-allergies-semen-orgasm-latex-dampen-libido/story?id=13593639&page=2

That's an interesting article. For me it raises the question of why a woman's allergic reaction last for 5-7 hours. And yet a man's allergic (POIS) reaction lasts for 5-7 days. What accounts for the difference? The nature of POIS and female semen allergies seem to be so entirely different. They don't seem to be related at all.

Daveman, would it be a big project to have a Google-translate button/feature on the site? Or perhaps just a link to Google-translate...
http://translate.google.com/?vi=c&hl=en#

emi_b, this is a very good idea, we have many countries represented here.

I looked up Semen Allergy Symptoms- and none of these are consistent with my experience of POIS. Interestingly, male semen allergy has been observed before. And the typical reaction is hives, swelling, itching. I don't think I've encountered anyone here with that group of symptoms.

 
SYMPTOMS
General: Symptoms of semen allergy vary among sensitive patients. The most common symptoms include burning, itching, and swelling of the genitals or areas of the skin that come into contact with the semen.
Hives: Moderate allergic reactions may cause hives. Hives are red, itchy swollen welts on the skin that may appear suddenly and disappear quickly. They often develop in clusters, with new clusters appearing as other areas clear up.
Angioedema: Some allergic patients may develop angioedema. This condition causes swelling in the tissue just below the skin. Angioedema is similar to hives, except it occurs deeper in the skin. The swellings, known as welts, usually appear around the eyes and mouth. They may also be present on the hands, feet, and throat.
Anaphylaxis (anaphylactic shock): In rare cases, a severe allergy reaction called anaphylaxis may occur. Anaphylaxis is a systemic allergic reaction, which means that many parts of the body are affected. Symptoms of anaphylaxis can vary from mild to severe and may be potentially life threatening. The most dangerous symptoms of anaphylaxis are low blood pressure, difficulty breathing, shock, and loss of consciousness, all of which can be fatal. The time lapse between ingestion/or contact with the allergen and anaphylactic symptoms varies among individuals. Symptoms may appear immediately or may be delayed from 30 minutes to one hour after exposure. Symptoms may also disappear and then recur hours later. Once symptoms arise, they progress quickly. Patients who develop symptoms of anaphylaxis should seek immediate medical treatment.

No problem Demo. Google DOES genuinely try to reward good content with high rankings, so as long as we keep on doing what we are doing, we are well on the way to success.

(and if some sites sympathetic to our cause would like to link to the new forum it certainly woudn't hurt  ;))


The best way I know to do that would be to offer link-placement exchanges, e.g., the National Dandruff Society will post our link on their site, but only if we reciprocate and do the same.

Link-exchanges aren't a bad thing as such, but the amount of google juice that you get from the link is substantially reduced when google realises that two sites are linking to each other. The link is still worth having, but one-way links are highly preferable.

The ultimate in good inbound links are those from sites that 1) Have a reasonable PageRank (2 upwards) 2) Have few outgoing links. Each site with Pagerank is basically sharing the "google juice" around with all the sites that it links out to. A pagerank 2 site with 1000 outgoing links would be almost useless to us, since you are only getting 1/1000th of the Pagerank available from that site.

Relevance is another major factor - a link from a medical site would be rated much more highly by google than one from "Bob's auto repairs". Too many irrelevant reciprocal links would put the new forum's status with google at risk - the recent J C Penney scandal showed how even the big online players can get SEO very wrong: http://blog.chrisenglund.com/new-york-times-exposes-jc-penney-link-scheme

Using creativity and persuasion is the key to getting high-quality 1 way links. For example, you (Demo) could offer to put another site's link on your welcome sig that you post to new members, in return for a 1-way link to the new forum. That way the link would be counted as 1-way and both parties would be getting something positive from the deal.

Since the new forum is non-commercial, you may be pleasantly surprised at how many sites offer to help you with one way or reciprocal links. An email personally tailored to the owner of the site is essential - bulk-mailing a general HELP US PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE email will get you nowhere and cause ill-will. If the site you are contacting has a very low Pagerank and/or a very high number of outgoing links, don't even bother getting in touch - it's a waste of your time.
