I started with Sambucol Black Elderberry Syrup which is 1.83 grams of concentrate taken 4 times a day. After that I changed to a capusle supplement of 1g concentrate taken 4 times per day.

thanks

Whether abstinence might have been a factor I don't know. It is possible I suppose but I rather doubt it.

I am a 71 year-old male in peak physical condition. (I came in 3rd in my age group in a recent 5k run.) I never experienced POIS until I began practicing Tantric sex with the same partner. Including foreplay, the time to ejaculation could be from 30 minutes to an hour or more. A couple of hours later I will experience debilitating weakness and brain fog. The longer the period of sexual stimulation the longer and deeper the dysphoria, which usually disappeared by morning.

Today I found a possible solution, a combination of 50 mg 5HTP with 25 mg DHEA. Within 15 minutes of administering the dosage I feel much better.

Is it possible that this prolongation of sexual stimulation caused the release of excess endorphins, and the absorption of oxytocin received via the exchange of saliva through kissing and vaginal-penile contact?

Why did you choose this combination? Isn't 5HTP for sleep and DHEA for heavy metal chelation?

John21: "Why did you choose this combination? Isn't 5HTP for sleep and DHEA for heavy metal chelation?"

On the theory that the POIS malaise is caused by the depletion of serotonin, dopamine, endorphins and other "feel good" neurotransmitters, I chose both supplements because of their effect on serotonin and these other neurotransmitters. Multiple sources reported that 5HTP is a serotonin precursor, and I've taken it for years for depression in doses ranging from 50mg to 300mg daily. (Presently I take 100mg daily.)

DHEA I've been taking for years for adrenal fatigue (stemming from severe childhood trauma) in daily dosages from 25mg to 75mg for prohormone replacement, with amazing positive effects on mood, libido and energy. (Presently I take 75mg daily.) DHEA is concentrated in the brain and throughout the nervous system; so I postulated that it, too, should have a positive effect on serotonin depletion.

Here I am the next day, less that 24 hours after my POIS episode, feeling great. I ran 3.1 miles this morning and feel great.

I am including a chart showing the position of DHEA in the chain of Steroidal hormone pathways.

Wikipedia's Hormone Hypothesis fits what I have described above:

quote--
According to another hypothesis, POIS is caused by a hormone imbalance, such as low progesterone,[7] low cortisol, low testosterone, elevated prolactin, hypothyroidism, or low DHEA.[16]

POIS could be caused by a defect in neurosteroid precursor synthesis. In this case, the same treatment may not be effective for different sufferers. Different sufferers may have different missing precursors, ultimately leading to a deficiency of the same particular neurosteroid, causing similar symptoms.[7]

Hi, all!

Things are slow in POIS ResearchLand...nature of the beast :)

Hope some of you have found some POIS relief -- at least partial -- from the many good ideas bandied about here.

HOPE TO HAVE SOME POIS NEWS IN MID-SEPTEMBER!

BEST wishes,
Demo

Hey you guys,

Im a sufferer from this #¤%&&%.
Niacin has given me great relief.

I believe I do suffer from a general serotonin deficiency, which might run in the family. bad receptors or something, dont know.

Tryptophan, as you well might know, is the precursor to serotonin. Though, if one is deficient in niacin, it takes 60g tryptophan to produce 1g niacin in the body.. instead of serotonin. Which might mean that you do not get that much serotonin from the tryptophan.

I take like 200mg niacin pre o, and some afterwards.. and i also take whey protein - which is a good source for tryptophan as well as other amino acids. So, with this formula i get; niacin + tryptophan -> serotonin naturally.

I do not want to rush things, but the pois is gone for me.
I also feel harmony, relaxation, good mood when I take this when needed in general.

niacin + whey protein has proven, at least from how i see it, to provide me with serotonine when needed.

- I take this when I start to feel "mentally negatively strained" in everyday life, and also after O and also the day after alcohol.
Earlier i got panic attacks the day after alcohol, niacin has taken away this. My theory is that it all boils down to a serotonine deficiency which is "killed" with niacin and tryptophan for me.

Hope this can contribute in some way.
I might be wrong, but after lots of trial and error, this is where im at right now.


cheers

Update:
200mg niacin + whey protein (500mg tryptophan) pre-o -> no pois

Theory:
Niacin and tryptophan prevent serotonin defiency/depletion after O.

peace out

Could it be that niacin helps to make tryptophan available as serotonin?
-The niacin flush metabolises available tryptophan in the body and creates serotonin?

So if one adds extra tryptophan (for example whey protein) then it is granted that tryptophan is available when niacin is used.
in case this is a question about serotonin..

I believe whey protein (o,5g tryptophan among other amino acids) and niacin has helped me after o as well.

Update2

The anti-pois effects was probably due to niacin.
Nacin and whey (tryptophan) does give relief also though. Relaxation and presence.

Does anybody else feel like their brain starts to live its own life when hit by pois?
You get almost disturbing nightmarish thoughts out of nowhere?

Feels again more like an inflammation problem..
200mg niacin/nicotinic acid pre-o seems to work wonders though for me.

Wish you all success with this "#¤%.

update3 :)

Still, there is something going on..
I only took 50mg niacin in the morning and then 2 portions of whey during the day.
Had an O in the evening. Got some pois symptoms; could not sleep, disturbing thoughts, anxiousness.
Took niacin and whey in the morning the day after - zero pois.. usually my pois lasts for messed up 2-3 weeks or something.
Feels as if im able to kill pois after o with whey and niacin..
niacin pre-o is always good though - takes away symptoms after o.
So niacin pre-o and whey and niacin after o, that will probably fix it for me..

My why contains about 18 amino acids i believe, where tryptophan is one of them.

Have a good evening

Below are my 2 articles about how I cured myself from POIS.
This was my article about POIS in August of 2015 (below that article is my article a year later in September of 2016):

 POIS NATURAL HEALING:

I was lucky that I suffered from Post Orgasm Illness Syndrome for only 6 months until I found a natural way to heal myself on my own. I have searched everywhere online and have heard that POIS is not curable at the moment and that the only solution so far is to inject people with their own semen because doctors think that we are allergic to our own semen (I dont think that is the case or at least not in my case).

 I AM NOT A DOCTOR so please do not rely on my advice 100%. Many of my statements probably arent 100% accurate but roughly I think they are correct and they did cure me from POIS. I have only been POIS free for the past 20 days (but I had orgasm every night and worked in my office 6 days a week, 11 hours a day - pretty tough on a body and yet NO POIS SYMPTOMS) so Im still not 100% sure that all of these things that Im naming here below work but I just really want to hurry and not wait longer and help people out there who still suffer. In case I do discover some more relevant knowledge about beating the POIS I will write back here or on some other blog UNDER MY BLOG NAME "DUKE0KNIGHT."

From what I have learned after trying for months to cure myself is that all my troubles originated in my stomach and my Adrenal Glands. The CURE was to REDUCE the amount of CORTISOL AND ADRENALIN in my body throughout the day and especially in the seconds immediately after my orgasm:
- too much stress raises the levels of cortisol and adrenalin
- if you are stressed all day long your levels of cortisol and adrenalin are high and your Adrenal Glands keep producing cortisol and adrenalin even during night (because they are used to producing it and just cant stop producing it that easily) so that is why many of us cant sleep well during night. I had NO IDEA that I had stress and I never believed in it. It just sounded stupid to me but I learned that STRESS is very present in our lives and really damages our bodies.
- YOGA helped me a lot. I go to yoga 3 times a week. At first I didnt want to go to Yoga because its boring but after doing it 5 times I started recognizing how bad my breathing was and how stressed I actually was during the day. I believe that through correct breathing we reduce stress and therefore we REDUCE CORTISOL AND ADRENALIN which are the MAIN REASON FOR POIS. I also did Infra Red Sauna 20 times but I dont think it helped me that much.
- if you think about it the symptoms that you get after an orgasm (or at least thats  how I feel) are very similar to the body feeling after a big stressful moment in life and/or very low immunity and/or getting a flu. THIS IS WHAT helped me realize that CORTISOL AND ADRENALIN are the main reasons for my POIS. Cortisol and Adrenalin are being excreted DURING ORGASM.
- the only natural ways of reducing Cortisol and Adrenalin I could google online that worked for me were:
- Yoga
- A bunch of herbs that REDUCE Cortisol and Adrenalin and INCREASE MELATONIN (Melatonin is very important because it fights agains Cortisol and Adrenalin): HOLY BASIL LEAF, ST JOHS WORT, ASHWAGANDHA, MACA ROOT, KAVA, VALERIAN ROOT, REISHI MUSHROOM.
- make your room PITCH BLACK DARK when you sleep because that helps elevate the levels of MELATONIN. Melatonin is great and you need a lot of it to fight away Cortisol and Adrenalin. The sunlight or indoor light (bulbs, computers, cellphones, etc.) reduces Melatonin in our bodies and that is why we need to keep our bedrooms very dark (cover windows, cover door holes, and take out computers and cellphones or at least put them further away from your bed).
- try having 8-9 hours of sleep and try falling asleep BEFORE 12AM because Melatonin is being produced I think starting at 10pm so you dont want to miss those hours being awake.
- Immediately after orgasm (literally a second after you have an orgasm start doing heavy Yoga style breathing to reduce the excretion of Cortisol and Adrenalin. Try to relax your entire body by breathing and reducing the Cortisol and Adrenalin excretion. During orgasm Cortisol and Adrenalin are being excreted and that is BAD. Im not sure about this breathing thing but I think that it does help me. The thing is that the moment I realized that it is Cortisol and Adrenalin what causes my POIS I hit Cortisol and Adrenalin from all sides with multiple approaches (Yoga, herbs, sleeping on time and for 8-9 hours, breathing after orgasm, etc.) so now I dont know which one of them are actually working and which ones arent that important.

Final thing that I did was get a nutritionist to help me. Im not sure how instrumental she was but she definitely helped me with my stomach issues. Bad stomach issues can also lead to STRESS in your body and we all know now that STRESS EQUALS CORTISOL AND ADRENALIN.
After doing hair mineral test, blood micronutrient test and blood spot test (this is the list of those tests but I think you can do it through any other company that does the same thing: arlok dot com, greatplainslaboratory dot com/home/ , spectracell dot com)  she has shown me that there were multiple imbalances in my body (for example I had too much copper, aluminum and mercury, lack of zinc, etc.) and taught me how to eat well. Her website is: nourishholisticnutrition dot com but you can also go to any other legit natural healing nutritionist and Im sure they will be helpful.

I REALLY hope that some of you will be cured from POIS by following my advice.
Please, email me at duke0knight AT gmail DOT com if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer them.

Thanks,
______________________________________________________________________________

 This was my article about POIS in September of 2016 (a year after my first article):


My POIS is completely gone. The key was to work on strengthening my adrenal glands. The main things that helped me fix my adrenals were:

- Dr. Lam in California who gave me many of his natural tinctures and advice. His wife Doreen was the one who consulted me and it cost me $100 per consultation. I did a consultation every week in the beginning and then every month and now every 6 months.
- Physical therapist Shawn Phillips in Los Angeles gave me a lot of good nutritional and exercise advice since he already had issues with adrenal fatigue.
- Hot yoga helped me immensely as well. I feel that doing yoga 1-2 times a week works best for me.
- At my worst I tried not to do any heavy and intense physical exercise so I did walking and running, light weights with not too many repetitions and light boxing. After I felt better I started increasing the intensity and now I have almost reached maximum intensity in all those exercises.
- I fall asleep before 11pm every night almost. This enables me not to lose melatonin production (which our bodies produce from 10pm to 2am) and allows me to have a good night sleep. Lack of sleep, insomnia, etc. also damages adrenal glands heavily. At my worst, I had to take triple the dosage of melatonin pills (the healthiest sleeping aid out thereI guess) just to fall asleep. They helped me a lot and now I dont need them at all.
- At my worst I took out all the SUGAR and lowered CARBS in my diet. That was insanely helpful. Now I do carbloading weekends, which means that I eat as much sweets and carbs (bread) as I want. But my body is healthy now and can take this.
- Finding a sexual partner, girlfriend, wife, etc. would definitely help. The key is not to simply stop ejaculating. For me once a week ejaculation was working well and now I can do 2-4 ejaculations on many weeks, which I feel like is very normal for a guy like myself, in his 30s. I do have a sexual partner now and Im not watching any more porn. I feel that porn actually really messed me up since I watched it every night almost from age 13 to 30.
- Meditation helps me tremendously (especially right after sex or heavy exercise when I meditate for 10min-20min). I meditate 1-3 times a day. The goal for me is always to meditate 20 min in the morning and 20 min 4 hours before sleep but that isnt often possible so I take 5min or 10min whenever and wherever I can (at work lunch room, park, any peaceful place, etc.) and do my best and this brings me great results. It helps me with sleep and lowers my daily stress significantly. My meditation technique is very simple (exactly like this one: www DOT youtube DOT com/watch?v=rqoxYKtEWEc ). I lay down or sit (mostly lay down) and breathe. I think about my breath going in and out of my body. If any other thoughts come in I slowly try to put them a side and go back to thinking about my breathing. After 5min or 20min of this Im done with meditation. Meditation is boring but the effects are so awesome that I keep doing it. Dr. Lam's deep breathing exercises are also very helpful during meditation (breathe in deeply and slowly through your nose and feel your stomach and then lungs expanding, hold the breath for a bit and then breathe out again through your nose slowly and feel your lungs and stomach contracting).
- Tons of water. I drink 80 to 100 ounces of water a day. But I am careful not to drink a lot of water 30min before food and 45 min after food because water can mess up digestion. I do sip a bit of water though sometimes during meals to soften the food.
- Herbs that helped me (they can all be found at Wholefoods, Lassens, Sprouts, Amazon and other stores):
- Tons of Vitamin C (we urinate out all the Vitamin C that our body doesnt need) - great for immunity and adrenal glands
- Echinacea tincture - great for immunity and adrenal glands
- Beet juice and also all other organic fresh squeezed juices - increase significantly my number of bowel movements. I drink these juices in the morning, right after Ive had 22 ounces of water on my empty stomach. This almost always guarantees a bowel movement within an hour or two.
- Double the amount of normal dosage of Magnesium pills also helped me tremendously and increased the number of bowel movements. However, at my current stage I dont use any more Magnesium pills since I feel much better and my bowel movements are regular. At one point I noticed that probably because I was taking so many Magnesium pills I had diarrhea so I stopped taking them at that point. Diarrhea was a signal that my body has recouped all of its missing magnesium and there was no need for more pills, so I stopped.
- Dr. Schulze's Ginseng Tincture and Heart Tincture ( www DOT herbdoc DOT com ) helped me tons with my adrenal glands.
- Dr. Schulze's Formula 1 helped me with my bowel movements. I would take these pills only when I was very constipated and I would not rely on these pills long term.
- Probiotic pills and digestive enzymes (Im not saying everyone needs them but they did help a bit).
- My current state is that I dont need to use almost any more supplements/herbs/tinctures. I only use supplements if I notice that my adrenal glands are not doing well. Once they are better again, I stop using supplements/herbs/tinctures.

This is roughly my current update as of 9/4/2016.


Hello again,

Can anybody say they are 100% POIS cured. The answear at this stage is still a big NO. Every so often somebody comes up saying do this and that and you cured. CURED is a big word when it comes to pois. If you come on this website or any other POIS forum and you say you cured we only just might start believing you if you have managed to explain what exactly you been going through all these years with POIS. In my opinion even every vitamin, mineral, extract, med, whatever you try always has its pros and cons but it never quiet comes down to a permanent solution. More than likely only the scientists will solve this mistery.

As soon as I can I'd like to elaborate a bit further on my testosterone experience but just 1st want to try get pen and paper so I can also explain this to my doc in the best possible way. Deciding on using TRT sure is a bit of a daunting task when you dont understand it all, besides never mind convincing your doc.  [|)]




Hi 4everfogged

*I beleive no one has cured from pois.
**I think that no one can fined acure for pois except a sick doctor with the same illness,

Still wondering if pois has something to do with serotonin depletion.. since that seems to be sort of an epidemic in our time.. SSRI being one of the most commonly prescribed drugs.. But maybe ssri has been experimented with here.

Niacin and whey (including tryptophan) are supposed to provide serotonin naturally..
With the whey powder you are taking how many mgs of tryptophan are you taking (just curious)? Will you experiment with just tryptophan powder?  Maybe one of the other amino acids is a big deal too. Glycine on empty stomach at night helped me a little with symptoms.
As for ssri's I would not say it is necessarily indicative of serotonin depletion epidemic. Doctors will prescribe ssris for depression regardless if it is caused by nutrient deficiency or hormone imbalance or if you are low in gaba, dopamine, acetyl chloline, endorphines, etc.

18,51 g   23,65 g
5,56 g


I took this and niacin before and after o, and i had no pois.
Like 200mg niacin and whey pre o, 100mg The day after plus a wheydrink.
That made me get away with no pois.
Started to feel *#%% pois-bad The day after o, but niacin and whey (or maybe only whey)
Killed that state. Will try to elaborate some more, but i regularly do nofap.
Hope sincerely that it might help someone.
(I take natural whey without artificial sweetener, thus no fenylalanin)


Best regards

Update

Had a wet dream and got pois (could not sleep, it starts to "creep" in My body).
Took whey and niacin .. And Then i was ok.. Which os a breakthrough for me since whey and niacin
Seems to kill pois -after o-. Never Been able to get rid of it after o before.
I take whey everyday and have experienced a better general well being.
And if i combine niacin and whey daily i almost feel too good.. But maybe
Thats how i should feel - getting enough serotonin?

Have a Nice day

Hi all, I've had brain fog for a lot of years constantly now. I thought that it would jus be exhaustion because of exercising and then masturbating, but none of my friends had the same symptoms. I've been searching all over the net for brain fog and what causes it, tried to take fish oil as a supplement but I have found out what is the cause of it, although I did suspect it would come from masturbating.

I have found out about POIS a few months ago so I tried see how directly related is masturbation to my extreme exhaustion. Turned up, it happens about 90% percent of the time I get at least one symptom the day after (on the same day, I get bad at socializing and my sight gets slown down).

I have a question, because the matter got worse this month. I used to get brain fog, reduced perception (sight, hearing), very slow reaction time, feeling like I am detached, unable to socialize and a lot of times extreme exhaustion ehich would drag on for a few days up to a week.

Now, I get higher temperature along with the other symptoms (37°C +) and I feel like sh1t (sorry for this), everything hurts me so much, just like if I had a flu and I barely sleep. Oh and I get diarrhea for two days as well. I've had "this" three times in one month, so it's hardly a flu. It's correlated to masturbation, and the symptoms increase with the intensity of orgasm.

I want to know, can POIS give those symptoms? Or am I just unlucky and caught a cold three times in a row?

I am 23 years old now, and had a brain fog for at least ten years (there were a few days in a year that I would feel great during high school and college). I tried abstinence, but sometimes I get to a point where I can't hold it anymore, even though I know how crappy I will feel after... Also there's are wet dreams which I can't help.

I exercise 4 times a week, calisthenics, but I feel like limited because of this.

I am very sad and depressed most of the time because of constant exhaustion and brain foggyness. There are only a few days each year that I feel on point, motivated and energetic... It's killing me knowing how I can't reach my potential. I am afraid of work now.
