Greetings,

Are there any legitimate Scientists on this with a venucular greater than the volume of a reptilian brain?

Please read my previous thread and provide an assessment as opposed to the poor responses equivalent to that of a junior in High School.

All the best.

aden99. I thought your post was interesting. Something to discuss on poiscenter. There are years of theories both here and on poiscenter and the seminal leakage one isn't new.

However, this comment is obnoxious.

It's also misspelt which is ironic considering the tone. The forum contains many non-English speakers who try their best to communicate about POIS in the hope it can be better understood and cured. The forum members are sufferers of POIS, an illness which we believe leads to cognitive impairment. I understand frustration but nobody needs to be insulted or have their intellect questioned.

Is what you suggest possible? Of course but there are also conflicting reports of using ED medication to treat POIS.
We've also seen 2 older POIS sufferers with diagnosis of hypertension. I understand cialis is prescribed as a medication for this. Other sufferers, myself included, have had some success with taking vasodilators.

Regular antibiotic use is obviously not a viable option for treating an illness that occurs with orgasms and nocturnal emissions. If we didn't have an immunological problem before we took antibiotics regularly we surely would afterwards. Some forum members have reported results from gastroenterological examinations showing they have high amounts of stomach bacteria, which may be affecting their ability to process nutrients and/or may be producing toxins in their guts. Others have reported some success with "natural" antibiotics like garlic.

Neem, would fall into the category of a natural antibiotic with anti-fungal properties.

Forum members have tried a variety of anti-allergy treatments with some success from anti-histamines, Non-steroidal Anti-Inflammatories and even steroids themselves. One of us have had great success with hormone replacement treatment.

Many things have been tried. It often appears things are written off too hastily and solutions grasped at but that is not surprising given what people are going through. We don't always agree with each other but we try to conduct ourselves with respect.

We also need further research and donations to the research grant which is described in more detail at poiscenter.com.

Any news about the functional MRI study??? It seems to be one of the best investigation to do !  :)

Aden99.
I found your post interesting. What antibiotic did you take, and how did you choose the particular one?
I may have misinterpreted your comments, but are you saying the ABx works by altering blood pressure?
I have found my pois/CFS symptoms have lessened when I have take Azithromycin. I thought it was quite possibly because of anti-inflammatory effect which was why this ABx was noticably better than a number of others I have taken. As Kurtosis points out getting a script from a doctor for poping just 1 ABx whenever we have an O for the rest of our life, is not going to be that viable. Still it would be very interesting if others can replicate it.
Also I don't not see any juvenile posts directed back you in response...have these been deleted?

Kurtosis...
"Neem, would fall into the category of a natural antibiotic with anti-fungal properties. "
I found much more info on these properties pertaining to Neem that I did in its use an anti-allergenic. I wondered if it was working for Nathan that it was more so because of this. A number of people have lessened their symptoms by following something along the lines of an anti candida/gut dysbiosis type diet. I was very disappointed to read Nathan's latest post, that his pois had returned. Two months of zero pois is not likely to be just a fluke though.

No, very unlikely to be a fluke. The symptoms are so obvious. There's no way you can be in doubt whether you're experiencing them or not.

Hi All!

This is just an FYI for those of you who are making automatic, recurring donations to NORD's POIS research grant fund.

If you're credit card expires, and you want to continue with your automatic donations, please re-register via our online donation page -- https://rarediseases.org/about/support/research-donations/fg_base_view_p3.

We ran into this situation with a recurrent donor whose card expired at the end of August.

It's very easy to fix by simply re-registering with your new card. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to send a PM or email me directly at NORD -- rn@rarediseases.org

Best wishes to everyone!

Stef

I agree with you, B Daniel. Aden99's comments were strange and very sarcastic.

Aden99 -- perhaps you actually don't understand who your comrades are on this POIS site. Each person here has walked in your shoes.  Some have medical knowledge, but these are not professional scientists who are experts on POIS.

As a matter of fact -- there are no scientists who are experts on POIS -- yet.

The forum members here are your fellow POIS sufferers, struggling constantly with the same basic misery that you're struggling with.

You wrote --

"Are there any legitimate Scientists on this with a vernacular greater than the volume of a reptilian brain?

Really -- those comments are uncalled for and just plain obnoxious. 

Perhaps you think that there really are POIS scientists on this site.

Unfortunately, the answer is "NO!"

It might help for you to visit poiscenter.com, where you can start a thread on a topic of interest to you.

But  there are no scientist there either -- just fellow POIS sufferers that know your pain and are doing their best to help themselves, while donating to the POIS research fund at NORD.  THAT is where you'll find the scientist -- through the research grant.

Please hold off (this goes for everyone) on snide, cutting remarks.  You men don't need this!  You need to support each other, while getting your first scientific POIS  grant started.

Aden99 - try going over to poiscenter.com -- at least you'll be able to put your theories into one thread, where others can offer their opinions and perhaps offer some help.

But keep in mind -- there are no POIS scientists over there either.  Expect honest respect and commentary.  The scientists will eventually be found through your research grant.

With all the misery that most of you have gone through, the last thing you need is a kick in the stomach from a fellow POIS sufferer.

Hi,

The following are of my experience and findings after I my POIS is back. 

a) I came to know the reason why POIS is came back:  After spending two months of happiest moment in life after success in Neem.  One night I make summary how I faced difficulties because of POIS in that seven years, its symptoms, treatments taken by me, use of this forum and I was emotionally involved in this.   From next masturbation I got my POIS back. 

Probably, I reminded my mind / immune system about POIS and it started again. 

b) POIS effects will reoccur / increase if I not gone to deep sleep and had dreams for 2 to 3 hours in the sleep.  If this is happened next day, I will experience increase in POIS symptoms.  This is the reason way for some one's POIS effects will be there continuously.   So, I tried sleeping tablets to get sleep deeply..  Unfortunately that is not working.

c) Still I am taking Neems and observing again decrease in POIS effects from day by day. 

d) Because of this, I came to know that our emotions / confidence level will determine severity of POIS.  After consultation of hypnotist, now I am following approach..   
  i) to write in a diary / paper before having orgasm that, ' After this orgasm, my mind is calm, clear, happy, confident and my breathing is normal, cool and calm, and my energy levels are strong'..  this type I will write with full concentration, for half an hour and this is giving me a confidence that I will not get POIS this time.   The result I found is, excellent decrease in POIS symptoms. 

ii) Suppose, if I failed in above approach and got POIS effects, on the next day, I will write as '  my mind is calm, clear, happy, confident and my breathing is normal, cool and calm, and my energy levels are strong' for half an hour twice a day and observed POIS symptoms will go quickly.  Pl some body this approach and post. 


Hence, presently I am in a hope that , our confidence level and mind will determine the changes in hormone level after POIS and if we something imbalance in hormone levels after o , then auto immune reaction will follow and symtoms of POIS.  Also Neem will reduce the auto immune symtoms.

Hi
jferr

All of us have the same symptoms,but dont forget that masturbation is the reason of pois,i got pois after severe masturbation several times aday per a week,the symptoms have lettle effect when i do it with my wife.but i dont know why!!.

Yes, If Masturbation is done under different styles, POIS effect is different.  Very stragne. 

People without POIS have observed a similar crash after quick masturbatory O's. It's just not as severe as POIS. You probably spend a lot longer having sex with your wife, meaning you're increasing dopamine levels to a higher plateau before the post O crash. You're also probably producing oxytocin which reduces the post O dopamine crash.

If you really want to reduce POIS symptoms following a solo O :) then take it very slowly. Fast & frequent O's are the problem.

Another thing is that you normally will have sex with a wife/gf once, whereas you might masturbate 2-4 times in a day.  That could also account for the difference in how you feel the next day (or at least, i noticed that was the case for me).

HI i really need some help, i suffer from this since puberty i am 20 years old now and it is ruining my life. i registered to this forum to see if i can get some help.. OK for some reason any time i ejaculate with sex, masturbation or night emission, i get these symptoms for at least a week, day 2/3 is the worst, it effects me both physical and mental in a major way More mental though.  depression,  intense discomfort,irritability, anxiety and difficult in concentrating also hard to think straight, i also feel weak and it seems almost like it weakens my personality , i really dont know what to do, if i dont ejaculate in any way for a week-2weeks i feel somewhat ok and i get my strength back both mental & physical. its like i must be relising some hormone or SOMETHING that is effecting me. really i dont know. iv been to my doctor about it and he said he has never heard of it. so all ive been able to do is reasearch the internet and iv found out about this condition Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome... i try not to ejaculate in anyway anymore, and when or if i do i get these symptoms big time...i would say its the depreshion and anxity that bothers me the most but still suffer from the rest of the symptoms mentioned.. Any help or advice i would really appreciate it.. could you inbox me if any.

I had a very much needed break from pois for the last 2 and a half month cause I was not ejaculating,one thing I noticed is maybe pois is not related to any allergies but it is definately a deficiency of some hormone in our body.when a normal person ejeculates the level of that particular hormone drops but not so low like in our poisers case in our case it drops to a level from which it takes long enough to bounce back or maybe we are not producing that same hormone enough.one more thing when we are staying away from ejaculation for a longer time the parts of our brain which are normally not used and kind of rusting even those parts come back to life.like in my case now when I had the big O this time the pois cycle has started but I remember many things that I enjoyed for all these days,yes I have taken so many correct decisions in the last 2 months all profitable and I am ready to give up an ejaculation for the next 6 months now.I just wanna stay away from this hell,I have reduced my weight,changed my diet,started exercising but nothing worked,the only thing that works is no sex. Period.

This forum has really died over the last 2 weeks.  We've been stuck on page 711 forever it feels like.  Nobody's experienced any improvement lately that they'd like to discuss?

I have a question over our Thyroid.  POIS symptoms align somewhat with that of hypothyroid.  I've been reading online about hypothyroid being misdiagnosed, and special types of auto-immune thyroid issues such as Hoshimoto's Thyroiditis, that may be present even if your TSH levels come back normal.  Not wanting to leave any stones unturned, I'm a bit curious about this.  Has anyone seen a really good neurologist or endocrinologist who has explored thyroid issues with them, above and beyond the simple lab tests?

A lot of people I feel fall through the cracks when it comes to thyroid. I suspected I was hypothyroid for years. I cannot remember what exactly I had tested when I was younger but was told I was fine by an endo. (probably just TSH) I remember him talking about goitre, so I had the impression he had physical manifestation as a primary guide if a person has a problem, which is wrong.
A few years ago I had another test for TSH and I think T3. I thought I read where there can be issues with TSH or T3 or T4, and then there is issues with other proteins binding to the thyroid hormones, just like with Testosterone, and there are Free T3 and Free T4 tests that measure the actual available levels of these hormones, I also think there are thyroid antibodies tests (not sure how or if they differ from free T3/T4) that people rarely have. If anyone suspects they have a thyroid issue they should read the website called 'stopthethyroidmadness', so they are better prepared to deal with their doctor. I thought there was a female with CFS on this site a few years back that said she had some improvement in her pois after dealing with thyroid issue.

I showed up with no detected iodine in a mineral test a few years back (essential for thyroid), and was put on Ammodine drops by doctor. If anything I thought I felt worse on this, but I was taking a few other supplements at the time. There are a number of health focused websites that talk about detox, so it might have been because of this. I was told to rub it on my skin, but just reading a few sites now, I see most talk of iodine drops being added to a drink.

Hey guys, I been following this thread for long time. I think I had POIS for 4 years now and am in same sex relationship. My partner very supportive, but it still hard. Not sure I have POIS. You have overview symptoms for this group or survey? I have brain fog bad, anxiety, bad dreams etc, not sure this mean I had POIS.

Hello All!

A $400 donation to the POIS fund was just received from a forum member.

On behalf of Daveman and Demo, I'm formally thanking the donor for that generous donation!!! Demo has given me his permission to do so.

(Demo used to thank every single donor profusely on this forum from the bottom of his heart -- and with great fanfare. No matter how much the donation was, Demo has always been thrilled by each donation.  He remembers when no one knew about POIS, and the idea of a POIS research grant fund was just a figment of the imagination.)

Additionally, I want to mention that one of you has donated $50 -- twice -- in the past one-two months.  Demo has mentioned it on poiscenter.com -- but I don't know if that donor has made it over to that forum yet. Please know that your donation has been greatly appreciated!

Having had a bit of back-and-forth email with this young man -- he is donating every thing possible!! He is to be applauded!

And to the automatic/monthly donors -- Demo and Daveman send many, many thanks! They know that their pushing and prodding is not in vain, and want to make sure that you know how appreciated those donations are. :-)

If some of you have not made it over to poiscenter.com -- it is worth your while to do so.  Once you get the hang of it -- it's a fabulous forum.  Everything is organized!!

So -- again, on behalf of Demo and Daveman -- thank you both for your recent donations!!!! 

I'm willing to bet that you'll have a scientific research grant started in 2013 -- that will be the ticket out of this POIS hell.

You guys are terrific! :-)

Stef

I sometimes wonder whether POIS is the intersection of 2 rare diseases.  If it is, hypothyroidism might be related.  I'm going to get myself checked so that I feel good about that, and can resolutely cross it off my list of suspected areas.  Honestly, I didn't understand much of the T3/T4 stuff you wrote below, BUT, the stopthethyroidmadness website was super helpful.  There are tons of reports online about people with hypothyroid who went to multiple doctors before getting properly diagnosed.  I'm going to take the recommended lab tests to my doctor and have her order the right tests.  Thanks for the website info!

A friend was diagnosed with a tumour in her thyroid by the 5th doctor she saw. By that stage, the consultant doctor said the problem was so bad she needed her thyroid removed. She is much better now and much happier as a result. Some illnesses are difficult to spot and some doctors do not pay enough attention to the presentation of symptoms or even test results. You've got to be very stubborn.

I presented the Selwyn Dexter study to my physician today: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3028282/

She found it interesting and wrote me a prescription for a progesterone drug called norethindrone (the US version of norethisterone).  I also had labwork ordered for my thyroid, hormones and cortisol levels.  I'll post updates on each of these items as I get results.

As a side note, if anybody is looking for another doctor and has really good insurance, I recommend seeing a physician at a Health and Healing or Health and Wellness center (I think her specialty is Integrative Medicine).  The doc I'm seeing has been more than happy to order me whatever tests I want and has been an absolute pleasure to work with.  I only say you need really good insurance bc they're specialists so seeing them is more expensive than seeing a Primary care physician, and all the labwork they order is quite pricey too.

Good luck B_Daniel! 

I just recently diagnosed myself with POIS.  I'm 18 and many doctors visits later I still didn't have a good reason for getting sick after sex.  So glad to find this resource.  I'll be doing more research in the coming week and reading through threads here.  Just one thing I've noticed so far is that the Bing search engine seems to give better results for POIS than Google for some reason.  Google gives a lot of non-POIS results (French peas?).

Here's some interesting questions/points:

1. Who here's POIS started with masturbation? Was the masturbation excessive? 1+ times a day? The reason for this question is because for one, there is likely to have been one instance of masturbation or sex that triggered or started POIS. After the trigger, something definitely changed within the body and/or brain. If we find what that change was, we can possibly reverse it.

2. There's currently a common theme upon this forum and POISCenter that the cognitive symptoms might be caused by a severe cerebral vasoconstriction for a period of time, and there has been positive results with certain vasodilators it seems.
     - It will be interesting to actually compare a brain blood flow test (TCD) before and after orgasm to confirm if there's actually a significant cerebral vasoconstriction, if so, at least there possibly can be effective ways to treat it
     - What type of bodily response is cerebral vasoconstriction controlled by? (pituitary? auto-immune? inflammatory? etc) It's possible that this particular system that controls this response has a problem, which allows us to see which supplements we can use to try to fix it

     - What type of bodily response is cerebral vasoconstriction controlled by? (pituitary? auto-immune? inflammatory? etc) It's possible that this particular system that controls this response has a problem, which allows us to see which supplements we can use to try to fix it

I think that the vasoconstriction continues because our body cannot regulate stress hormones. I also believe the same problem occurs with NE/Dopamine balance after an O. POIS is possible some kind of autonomic dysregulation condition whether it's caused by autoimmune disease, hormone synthesis abnormalities or a bunch of other possible causes.

Thanks for your perspectives Kurtosis and alphaq.  Found a pretty interesting overview, which appears to be contributed by individual POIS sufferers:
