Anyone know what happened to the original POIS questionnaire database?


Yes, mellivora, we're looking at it now.

Thank you for the reminder!

Thank you very much Mellivora. With people like you going out of your way and doing real and tremendous work in benefit of POIS we ARE going to get somewhere.

Like both NORDs and HIHs database entry, it takes time to build up on additional information and references. As you say they have to check them out well. And that's why these sources are so respected.

I had a look at the three expert sources listed, and didn't see any direct mention of POIS. But they are in related fields. Let's see if there are people there that actually will work directly with POIS.

We hope to generate events this year that will be worthy of special mention in all of these referential databases.



And I concur and add the following!

"Orgasm Research: Climax in an MRI Machine? Been There, Done That "

demo, this is actually a really interesting article. Throughout the years, there has been talk in the forum about how beneficial it would be to get an MRI during O. The article indicates that there were many test subjects. Is it possible to get a copy of this study? It was conducted in Newark, NJ at Rutgers University. Is anyone living in the area? It would be extremely valuable to get an MRI of a POIS sufferer to compare it with the "normal people" :) in the study. It could be a huge breakthrough examining post-O chemical reactions of POIS sufferers.

Although this one was for a girl! And I think they were looking at different areas of the brain.

But there must be more than one study that zooms in on the male and his pituitary interactions etc.

Guys, As many of you know I have a constant, extremely debilitating POIS, on bad days I freeze with no thoughts like a dementia patient. Paranoia, fog, and physical symptoms..

I took Chlorella, Vitamin C, And ZMA afterwards to go with the niacin I had taken before the orgasm. I recovered much quicker than usual and within a few days I felt more alert and clear than I had felt in a while. I had a purpose in life again. I continued to cycle these products daily and this continued for over a week. My libido was back, Could smile, Got tons done. Have not had one orgasm since and int he past few days I have begun to feel the alertness leaving and as well as my energy. I was thinking maybe placebo but then again I was sustaining the good feelings for over a week. I believe that these medications effected some areas that are deficient and I'm just trying to figure out how to sustain the wellness. I fear that I'm slipping back.

Fellow member, 'Kurtosis', actually was the one who suggested a few of the products to me as he has had consistent relief for a long period of time. I will be trying different herbs to try and sustain some sort of health. Hoping I can come up with a treatment regiment of some kind, the suffering is extensive as you all know first hand.

Best,

Jon.

Yes, Hoping, like you, since our early days here I was.....Hoping!.....to see something like this done for male POISers!

An fMRI of POIS!

I just now contacted Dr Komisaruk and we will hopefully get the full paper.

A couple years back, I tried to enlist the support of Dr Komisaruk and his 2 co-authors of their book, "The Science of Orgasm", sadly, no replies.

From Neuroscience Annual 2011 Conference, Washington, DC

Presentation Title:

An fMRI video animation time-course analysis of brain regions activated during self-stimulation to orgasm in women

Presentation time:

Monday, Nov 14, 2011, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Authors:

 *B. R. KOMISARUK, N. WISE, E. FRANGOS, W. BIRBANO, K. ALLEN;
Dept Psychology, Rutgers, The State Univ. of New Jersey, NEWARK, NJ

Abstract:

 In an fMRI analysis of genital stimulation-induced orgasm, we reported the following sequential activation of multiple brain regions: genital sensory cortex (paracentral lobule) then limbic system regions (insula, anterior cingulate, amygdala, hippocampus) then prefrontal cortex and cerebellum then hypothalamus and nucleus accumbens, followed after orgasm by an overall reduction in activity of all these brain regions. That preliminary analysis was based upon continuous fMRI recording, in which we created regions of interest (ROIs) based on Brodmann’s areas, and represented the activity in each of 80 brain regions (40 on each laterality) as a rising or falling line graph over time (Komisaruk et al, SFN, 285.6, 2010). A more precise insight into the sequence of activation of these brain regions can be gained through dynamic visualization in the form of an animation video that utilizes the same form of data. Consequently, in the present analysis, we have represented the activity of each of 80 Brodmann Area ROIs in its “hot metal” analog, with 10 gradation levels progressing through red, orange, yellow to white. This color code is then applied to each ROI for each 2-sec period during the course of genital self-stimulation before, during, and after orgasm. This is represented in non-dynamic form as the matrix below (a representation of one woman’s orgasm, which is similar to others’), in which each column is an ROI and each row starting from the top down is a 2-sec period. Inspection of the matrix reveals: a) non-uniform sequence of activation of different brain regions leading up to orgasm, b) greater activation in the right hemisphere than the left, c) widespread activation of the brain at orgasm, and d) substantial reduction in brain activity after orgasm. Our analytic animation method utilizes a recurrent loop video. It facilitates an understanding of the interaction and sequential activation of the brain components underlying the gradual development of genital stimulation-induced orgasm.

Great, Rutgers, you've shown us the possibilities and they are exciting!

Now let's do one on the guys!

Hi all,

As I posted on a poiscenter.com thread a few months ago, encouraged by nordnurse I wrote to Orphanet, the European database of rare diseases in an effort to get POIS included in their database. I've made several follow-ups since then and today we finally have some good news!!

Orphanet now list POIS on their website!!! Daveman and Demo got us listed in the National Institutes for Health Office of Rare Diseases Research database in the U.S. and now we have similar recognition in Europe through Orphanet. Hopefully this will prove a great step in getting POIS to be more acknowledged and recognised by medical professionals and helps give us more credibility than ever.

The listing at this stage is not a huge amount more than the name of our condition. In time, a summary and more details of our condition should appear on the database. Here is a quote from the email I received from Orphanet:

"The summary addition is a complicated process due to the many accuracy controls and it will take time, however, the addition of POIS on Orphanet is the most important part."

The Orphanet listing can be seen here:
http://www.orpha.net/consor/cgi-bin/Disease_Search.php?lng=EN&data_id=20421&Disease_Disease_Search_diseaseGroup=pois&Disease_Disease_Search_diseaseType=Pat&Disease%28s%29/group%20of%20diseases=Postorgasmic-illness-syndrome--POIS-&title=Postorgasmic-illness-syndrome--POIS-&search=Disease_Search_Simple

I'd like to emphasise that this would not have happened were it not for the advice and encouragement I received from nordnurse. It probably wouldn't have come about if Daveman and Demo hadn't taken the initiative and got us listed in the U.S. either as its that that set me thinking about European databases. And of course it wouldn't have happened without our forums! Our listing on Orphanet is further proof that everyone here can make a difference.

Tell us how ya did it!!

Request for all - Anyone who hasn't contributed/pledged yet, please do so as it is for our own benefit. The sooner we collect money, the sooner we can be POIS free. Yes, POIS freeeeeeeee!!!!!!   (If you can donate either $5000 or $100, it doesn't matter. What does matter is that we are slowly and slowly reaching our goal. Please pledge/donate as soon as you read this note. Don't wait, otherwise you'll be waiting to cure yourself!)

Sadly, Willem has been banned as a forum member. We have always made strenuous attempts to not deny any POISer in the world with participation in this Forum. Every ban decision has been made very painfully, but in the end, always contributed to the greater good of our community.

Willem has been recruiting members - for his FOR-PROFIT venture - against agreements we had made. This business-agenda-promoting also is a severe violation of this Forum's rules, its spirit and general ethical forum decorum.

He has demonstrated a blatant lack of respect for the well being of the community and is ONLY interested in his “for profit venture”.

We are in the final stage of very important and real progress, and are working our butts off without profit with the real intention of the community in mind.

More dilution to another profit oriented community will only delay or stop any chance of finding a cure.

Many Thanks, everyone, for your continuing loyalty. His sad, divisive differences coming from profit, and selfish motives will become very apparent to you , and we are very confident that reason - and common sense and most importantly:
G O O D  F A I T H - will prevail in the end.

As always,
Wishing you the best, and only for YOUR interests, not anyone else's.

demografx
and
Daveman

FTI:                         4.0
Total T3L                  131.12 ng/dL, (87.00 - 178.00)


These tests were taken the morning after orgasm when I'm usually feeling worst. I do want to mention that I lift 4 days a week or so and also take protein after my workout, I'm not sure if that could have affected these results. I'm not sure if there are important things that I did not test for such as other hormones or amino acids, but I tested for quite a bit. Any comments or suggestions are welcomed and appreciated.

Jon.

Thank you, jferr. I would explore with an endocrinologist the possibility of a testosterone-type supplement, only because it has given me such giant relief.

Even when I was given daily testosterone patches that brought my readings into "normal", I asked for and received 50% more. I did this for 2 years and I am just now starting to reduce the testosterone because I show "too much."

Like desensitization, and niacin, TRT is experimental.

BEST WISHES, JFERR!!

From
http://www.capitalfm.co.ke/lifestyle/2012/01/11/are-you-allergic-to-your-own-semen/

Postorgasmic illness syndrome (POIS), or also known as a man’s sad story to a very good happy ending, is a legitimate medical syndrome that has been documented in medical journals since 2002.
It seems that experiencing flu-like symptoms such as runny nose, burning eyes, exhaustion, disordered speech, frightening dreams, swollen lips and feverishness immediately after ejaculating – is not so rare for men after all.
In a 2011 study, Dutch researchers found 87% of the 45 suspected male subjects with POIS experienced the symptoms within 30 minutes after ejaculation. All of the subjects reported clusters of symptoms that were flu-like and involved the head, eyes, nose, throat and muscles – leading researchers to also believe that the male subjects were allergic to their own semen.
When the men were exposed to their own semen through skin pricking tests, nearly 65% of the subjects experienced allergic reactions.
That’s right, they were allergic to their OWN semen.
Researchers believe POIS is caused by a Type-1 and Type-IV allergy, which is triggered as soon as a man experiences an orgasm and ejaculates. Some of the symptoms and discomfort may even last up to a week.
In the study, one of the subjects goes on to explain that because of the severity of his symptoms, the subject’s wife planned to have intercourse only on Fridays so he would have two days to recover before returning to work on Monday.
UK Researchers and doctors have also noted similar symptoms in patients that they’ve treated.
Scientists cannot definitively explain why some men experience allergic reactions to their own semen. However, researchers believe that some men’s semen may be exposed to immune cells, which sets off their immune system.

ARTICLES LIKE THESE ARE NOT THE TRUE OR COMPLETE PICTURE OF POIS AS WE KNOW IT HERE AT THE FORUM, BUT THE GROWING WORLDWIDE PUBLICITY HELPS US GAIN CREDIBILITY AS A MEDICAL CONDITION SO THAT DOCTORS WILL TAKE US MORE SERIOUSLY, WE WILL ATTRACT MORE MEMBERS. AND MORE FUNDING!

Dr Sheepie is pleased to see that this thread is still procreating many bountiful replies and comments..and yet......despite the odd controversial circumstance the way that Demografx and the team keep this thread maintained is a tribute to all their incredible work and support that is given to all the members here.
In fact , without all the incredible contributions made by all ewe members there would not be the growing recognition that there is today for POIS..

so...well done to ewe all !!...Ewe are all so damn amazing !!


Dr Sheepie !!!!

Amongst other things, we have started a new thread on the SMF forum documenting the geographic distribution of POIS sufferers. I know we have started similar things before but this new thread is as simple as I can think to make it and I hope it'll get more responses than other attempts in the past. Please log on and add your data if you don't mind. It's here:

Below is my actual correspondence with a forum member yesterday. His name has been disguised to protect his confidentiality - demo


Since I was a member of Willem's site does it mean I'll be banned if I don't delete my profile there? I didn't realize his site would be a threat to our forums.


No, Anonymous_POISer. Never! Anyone and Everyone should be free to explore anything that might make them feel better.

We just don't want him using OUR free platforms - deceptively - for a profit venture. Several months back, Willem invited me to lunch, pressing me hard to recruit our forum members to his website. I clearly said, "NO!", at lunch, and on subsequent occasions, daveman and I repeated, "No, this goes against the pricinples of a Free Forum." But he was not to be deterred in hunting profits, and continued deceitfully, in spite of assuring us otherwise.

Outright lies and bad faith dealings, I'm sad to report, marred our entire relationship. We're obviously sorry we didn't catch this sooner.

I want OUR MOTIVES dictated by OUR MEMBERS. And not some pharmaceutical company willing to pay "someone like Willem" top $$$$ for info about us (that THEY deem important) so they can sell us "POIS Toothpaste®" LOL...actually that's disgusting, not funny!

YOUR DATA ARE NOT FOR SALE AT NSF AND SMF!

ANONYMOUS_POISer, you are tops in our book!!!

Best,

demo



okay that's a relief, thanks demo : )


You're very welcome, My Friend.
