Much has been said here about serotonin and dopamine, and it makes sense. Does anyone have a theory why Levitra works for me? Is there any relationship? As far as I know, Levitra simply improves blood flow. Thank you!

I'm glad to have found this post. I have a condition that definately involves the orgasm. Every since I started masturbating as a teenager I've been depressed and been a shy introvert. Before that I was an A student and very active in sports and had alot of friends. I just all of a sudden changed. As I've gotten older (I'm 32 now) I've developed alot of other problems like insomnia, social phobia, nervous ticks around people (like eye burning sensations or light sensitivity sensations in my eyes), nervous talking, neck muscle pain and stiffness, etc. The thing is I find that when I haven't had an orgasm for a while I seem to snap out of it and become happy again and socialable and most of those symptoms just vanish. When I mean for a while like not having an orgasm for about four of five days usually. I'll feel good and confident around people and usually sleep good. I also workout daily and jog so to keep me feeling good and improve my health and physique. However after a few days of no orgasms I become horny (naturally) and eventually start to play with myself until I come and the whole cycle starts over again. The good thing is I can usually have a single orgasm in about a four or five day stretch without much of the symptoms coming back. But often when I give in to masturbate once the horniness lingers on later in the day or night and I masturbate again a couple more times and until all the need is gone. I then develop all these symptons again and it takes days for me to recoup. I definately think that the orgasm combined with my brain chemistry can be proven detrimental in excess or even what is considered the norm in todays world and I really wish there were doctors that could diagnose and treat these problems. SSRI's have again and again proven unsuccesful with me. Seems like serotonin has nothing to do with my problem and only seem to make some of my symptons like insomnia and anxiety even worse.

Welcome Tate. I send you the questionnaire. If everyone is ok, maybe should i post our results in a jpeg file ? Clearly some case seems to have no benefits with serotonin rebalance. Which ssri did you test ? Look at agjchs post (page8). Wellbutrin (blocked depression after 4 or 5 ssri failiure ) and DHEA blocked pois symptoms. Compared to ISSM article :
"Dr. Moser suggested success with Buproprion having anti-anxiety properties with no negative effects on sexual functioning."
(Bupropion = Wellbutrin).

Can the moderation send a private message to agjchs ? We really need to know how his recovery is progressing and the role of DHEA on his symptoms.

Hi B_Jim...

No problem at all about posting as a jpeg.

Though there may be an issue if it's a large file depending on how you post it. If you upload it directly then your limited to 128k....if you do it via a photo hosting site then there should be no problem with larger files. We do have cases though where some people access the site from work...in some of these cases the pictures posted as links from photo host sites do not display properly.

Just thought I'd let you know.

I think levitra may work by exerting an effect on the pituitary via the hypothalamus. Levitra tells the hypothalamus to send instructions for the manufacture of oxytocin at the pituitary. If the pituitary is busy making oxytocin then it may make less prolactin soon after orgasm. Reduced prolactin means more dopamine and serotonin and so a better brain chemistry.
The so called prolactin inhibitors such as bromocriptine are useless. These medications are of the dopamine agonist class. They keep dopamine receptors switched on with the affect of stopping prolactin. Keeping dopamine receptors switched on can eventually cause serious mental illness such as depression and psychosis.
In my mind theres little doubt that the POIS problem originates at the hypothalamus. A medication that helps better regulate the hypothalamus may provide excellent treatment.
What I have written here needs more research.

DENIAL

Just curious if anyone else has "been in denial" about POIS? For me, even continuing to now, the present - - I could somehow "never believe" this was happening to me. I know it's crazy to do this for 25+ years! But I somehow could never accept/believe it and continued to go through POIS, at many times when it was unecessary to have a release. Each time, I would think "this time it will not happen".....and it does! Always! (except for the current success with Levitra).

Who else here has experienced this?

I was never in denial about any POIS. It was more a matter of not knowing that the symptoms were linked and caused by the orgasm. Sure I felt very weak, depressed, psychotic, OCD went through the roof, awarness dropped and muscular weakness. All after an orgasm. But for a large part of my life I didnt know that the orgasm was causing it. The symptoms of POIS, for me, take anything from a few hours to a day to emerge. Over a period of two decades I came to the slow realization that I had a post orgasmic illness. If I not had this illness my life would have been very different. This is a very bad illness and has taken so much away from me. In particular because it affects your mood and changes your personality. You change from a normal person into something else. The simplest way to put it is that you become mentally ill.

Interested, of course, ask away!

Bizzy I agree, mentally ill is a good description.

Denial: I'm sure that accepting that you are mentally ill is difficult for anyone to accept, so denial can be present at times especially when the doctors you are complaining to don't accept that it is real. Much of my life I didn't have a clue what was wrong with me, but when I was in the intensity of the illness there was no denying it, I KNEW. At those (many) times denial would be like cutting your hand off and pretending it is still there. Yet later on when I had "healed" I would once again entertain the idea that it was all in my head somehow, after all how could something so unique and horrible be unheard of? How could there be no tests that would demonstrate what was so obvious to me? So over the years I would flip back and forth, always returning to the firm resolve that there was something seriously wrong with me.

Why does sex cause tiredness and lightheadedness in men....?
After having sex i usually feel dead tired, and my i usually can't think straight for atleast 2 days afterward, but girand going.I also notice that if i have sex too often it decreases energy level, staminals can just keep going , ability to focus and concentrate, memory etc. Do other guys also experiance this, i find i think best during periods where i have abstained from sex or "autoeroticism" for atleast a month.
has anyone else noticed this...it obviously does not apply to women.
why am i sharing this information on the internet, wtf...who cares.
 think some of you have missunderstood me, i am quite fit, i could easily have sex up tp 10 times per night, but it affects my ability to think clearly and seems to zap my stamina substantially.

Why Do I Feel Drained After Sex?
For at least 1 or 2 days after i ejaculate (sex or masturbation) i feel very drained and tired, and may even get a headache. Is it beacause i'm loosing some important fluids ? what's in ***)? s there a way to replenish quickly or beforehand so I don't feel so bad?

I came across this forum looking for selegiline experiences and stumbled onto this thread. I had seen that website and many others and have tried several therapies to this phenomenon. The most effective has been abstinence.
My situation may be unique in that I do not need a two-week period of abstinence to feel good/confident/affable and waiting that long does nothing for me. I am normally this way but immediately after ejaculation and for about 24 (give or take about 6) hours afterwards I fall into a deep depression. I can orgasm multiple times without ejaculation but have always ended up ejaculating so I can't say for sure which is responsible for the depression. Working out heavily, increasing my calories and sleeping seems to help me cope to some degree but it is really debilitating. I have found over the years that it is best to stay away from social contact during these times. ......

Well, this is very personal and I feel since i am pretty anonymous i can talk about this.
I have masturbated since i was 15, everyday at least, up to 3 times a day. the longest i had gone without doing this was like ,2-3 days. That \'addiction\' continued to dec. 30th (i am 18 now) when i made a new years resolution to quit until college resumed on jan. 6th.
I want to do an experiment to see if masturbation has made me shy and withdrawn. I think this could be a possibility and its been 3 days... one side effect i am noticing is depression, and slight anxiety, more than usual. I usually do get those though.
I also am wondering if masturbation has stunted my physical growth... i am 18 and look 16, physically too (hair growth), maybe younger.
But, I have smoked pot occasionally during ages 15-now, so maybe that has something to do with it. I doubt that, though.
I also wonder if masturbation lowers or raises testosterone?
Thanks in advance for informative replys.
i agree with druid
btw... i felt weird, depressed and anxious when i went without doing it for 4 days... thats all i could take. I will now limit myself to 3 times a week.

What could be causing extreme fatigue and muscle weakness after orgasm?
I understand that men are always tired after sex, but it is more than being tired... It is not a feeling of wanting to go to sleep but feeling physically weak, continuing into the next day or longer. It impairs other cherished activities such as going for a run or working out the next day. This occurs after masturbation and sexual activities with a partner.
Is this abnormal and what could be causing it?
Any answers would be great... this has been very bothersome.

How do I get my energy back after mastubating? I masturbate excessively (more than twice each day sometimes).?
I am 100% sure that masturbating two or more times a day will make me extremely extremely tired, and this tiredness will last for at least 36-48 hours after the 2nd or 3rd masturbation. I'm in my early 20's. Sometimes I take a break for 3 or more days and the energy ALWAYS comes back after 36-48 hours.

This tiredness causes come back pain, and sometimes my thighs get so tired that it's very hard to stand up, and I don't feel like thinking. I read that others on the net have this problem. (And the energy decrease is extremely significant, and occurs as a direct result of maturbation.)

MY QUESTION: I don't want people to tell me not to masturbate...but what can I do to either "prevent" future decreases of energy after masturbating ... OR ... what can I do to get my energy back quickly afterwards?

(ps. Sleeping 1 to 2 hours helps sometimes, but I don't have much time. Other answers would be appreciated.)

Does ejaculation actually have any negative effects?
I'm in an on-going debate with someone so I'm trying to find some proof that ejaculation (specifically losing sperm) doesn't lower your life span or make you less intelligent or able to focus. I already know that after men ejaculate that they get tired, but I have serious doubts about it shortening their life or making them unable to focus for days after (as this person is implying). I really believe that it's due to other reasons and an unhealthy life style, not losing sperm.

I haven't found any articles supporting the idea yet. If anyone can find one that proves this as a myth or not that'd be a great way to answer my question.

 Dear Doctor My problem is getting very tired next two days after ejaculation or intercourse (after discharging). I feel very tired, lazy, feel sleepy and no interest in my work or sex for few days. But no problem in erection or ejaculation again next day or after. This problem was started from my teenage and I was masterbating very occassionaly only. But it was discharging during night time after every ten or 15 days in my sleep. Now I got married and facing the tiredness problem. I am afraid that I may not be able to satisfy my partner. She is co-operative and giving me strength by words. But how long she can suffer me........please help me doctor......... Why this tiredness comes? Is any problem by discharging semen? Which specialist I have to consult? Is it common phenomena? My friend says that he masterbate allmost all the days. But I can't even think about it............! Malik, U.A.E

Hi, i'm new here. I got a couple of masturbation problems. For the past few years, my masturbation sessions are very bland. My orgasms are only enjoyable, if i'm doing it in the shower, have to pee really bad, or horny out of my mind (which is rare), for some strange reasons. Most of the time, my orgasms are very bland, nothing special.

Next problem, just about every time I masturbate, after I come, I feel burnt-out for days, sometimes weeks. Like if I plan on doing something, it wears me down, and I lack motivation. In addition, a lot of times after I masturbate, it takes me days, sometimes weeks to even get back into the mood, to masturbate. I don't mean it takes that long to get turned on again, I mean turned enough to want to mastubate.

Can anyone explain why, or relate, or thoughts? Thanks.

Does orgasm have a negative effect on concentration?
Whenever I masturbate and orgasm, I always feel as though I cannot concentrate afterwards - pretty much for the entire day.
My eyes become tired and have difficulty focusing when reading, and just overall, I become easily distracted.
I have no guilt with masturbation, so it's not psychological like that. However, everytime that I do orgasm, I do notice a significant difficulty in working, that is not present when I do not.

Headache/migrane ? lack of concentration ? after sex?
by means of a wet dream, masturbation, or anything else results in a lack of concentration. Basically, for 5 to 6 days it becomes extremely difficult to concentrate on anything, I simply cannot sustain a train of thought to think things through. I become extremly absent minded. This makes it difficult to read, hold conversations, follow lectures, take tests, remember things, and learn things. I feel extremly tired and jittery, both physically and mentally. I also become depressed during this time. Its like being totally burned out in the head; much like how people after an epileptic attack are. Also, I get strong headaches after masturbation. Allow me to repeat, these symptoms last 5 to 6 days! So its having a huge affect on my life. I've gone to a neurologist, but he doesn't seem to know whats wrong. He prescribed an ssri, but only because I mentioned I get depression after an orgasm.
If anyone has any idea of what I can do to fix this, or any information at all, please respond

My boyfriend and I have been together for some time now and decided about a month ago it was time to do some more sexual things since we both felt ready. We have been doing things for about a month now and everything was fine until last night. He felt fine before I started to **** him off but after we had finished, he was really unwell. He felt extremely sick though at the time, he was really enjoying it but afterwards, things just weren't right. He was extremely hot, which is understandable and this can lead to sickness but is that what was wrong? Opinions please....

I am a 28 year old male and since last once month I have been experiencing extreme lower thigh and limb muscular weakness and fatigue after ejaculation. Since then I have had deteriorating muscle strength in my legs and increasing fatigue. Earlier I used to feel weak after ejaculation, but I guess that is normal. But these days after ejaculation or masturbation, I feel my mind not being at ease and after a few minutes I start to expericence severe muscular pains and stiffness in my limbs. I'm suffering from extreme fatigue these days. Could it be some kind of harmonal imbalances? I have checked up with my GP for possible causes(any viral infections, thyroid, rheumatoid disorders, gravis, muscle wastage, anxiety & depression disorders) and so far everything has come out normal. I am at loss to find out what is causing this muscular pains in my legs triggered a month ago by ejaculation. The pain is quite similar to being as if I have run on a treadmill all day long. I will be meeting a neurologist next week.

I'm in the mid 30 yrs old. I feel exhausted and lost my desire for sex for the couple of days after ejaculation. Regardless the ejaculation is from sex or masturbation. Is that normal? When I was younger, I never feel this way.

hi john21, b-jim...

thanks! it isn't actually about me, I do not suffer from this. it is about a friend of mine (male),

not sure how to put this since i am interpreting something that i haven't actually experienced. please bear with me, here goes...

the symptoms seem to be similar to many of the ones described in the various posts. it comes on immediately following orgasm - within a matter of minutes. and lasts for anything up to two weeks, in which time he is really down, and any thoughts about sex fill him with disgust... self-disgust. so he doesn't think about it. avoids any mention of it. he feels really depressed during this time, and has really negative thoughts. over this time it gradually "improves" and he is back to "normal", then the cycle starts again... the only way he has been able to describe it / explain it is like a release of hormones... which seems to correspond to the dompamine, etc. theory.

he has had this for ever, each time, to a greater or less degree. his this self-disgust something others experience? any tips about avoiding it?

thanks a lot!

Constant stomach bloat, headache, abnormal stool after masturbation

I am 26 year old male and i am having this problem for the last 5 or 6 months.
Well, i am having a constant bloat in my lower abdomen. I have to go to restroom twice daily. Even after that my lower abdomen feels bloated, like something is blocking. If i try harder, my whole head starts to ache a lot. One more thing is, whenever i masturbate, after 15 minutes, the bloating increases a lot, my head fells like its about to burst, and for 2 to 3 days i suffer from diarrohea(its not loose motions, but abnormal stool thats not solid or loose).
Does anyone suffer from the same symptoms. It would really help me if u have suggestions, since this is driving me crazy for a while now. Thanks a lot.

I have these same problems. I feel bloated and have stomach pain
a few days after masturbating and sometimes feel sharp pain near the left kidney (sometimes right). I also sometimes feel pain above (usually left) testicle. This situation started suddenly about a year ago after a day of excessive masturbation (don't laugh;)). From that day I also get similar symptoms after drinking coffee. Is it possible that my bowel got irritable in only 1 day? Because I couldn't find on web any connection between Irritable Bowel Syndrome and sex/masturbation. Can anyone help?

I believe I have a medical problem related to sexual activity. I feel
awfully tired and unmotivated after I have masturbated. I also feel
more thirsty and hungry on days when I masturbate. And the story
doesn't end there. I have noticed that I become increasingly
vulnerable to disease after I've masturbated. I don't remember a time
when I caught a cold or a flu and I had not masturbated just before
catching it. So Doctor, please let me know how to get rid of this
problem. I have tried stop masturbating but without success. Since I
can't stop it, I would like to have some other remedy for my problem.
Thanks for your time.

Medical or psychological? Fatigue after ejacluation
Hello Doctor,
I will have him schedule an appt. with a doctor when he has time, but I wonder if this is normal, or physical or psychological ?I am asking on behalf of my boyfriend. Whether masturbating or having intercourse my boyfriend only allows himself to ejaculate only about once a week. He will have an erection, but always stops short of an orgasm. Even daily or semi-daily, but never to the point of  orgasm. The reason for this is that he says that if he has a full orgasm he's extremely tired for days, and he has a demanding job so he needs to be awake for work. To me, it seems strange and unhealthy. He also has depression and fatigue that last days; he has headaches,and it's almost as though he is sickSick sinus syndrome, etc. He is nearly forty years old. I suggest that he practice orgasm more often so that his body is more acclamated to them, such as if he tries masturbating more regularly so that his body doesn't act as though it's going through trauma afterwards. Have you heard of this, or does it sound like a problem? I always thought that men needed to ejaculate more, and that it's even healthy for their prostate gland...

Does anyone else feel shitty after they've ejaculated? I mean physically. I don't know how to describe it. I usually start to feel it about 20 minutes after ejaculation and then it gradually increases intensity for about an hour and then gradually an equilibrium is restored and I feel normal again. It's not a religious thing either since I didn't grow up with religion. I'm horny all the time like anyone else and experience the pleasure of orgasm like anyone else but there's something about that weird shitty feeling that holds me back from actually wanting to engage in sex (or masturbation) all the time. I'm in my 40's now and I've felt this way ever since my first ejaculation at 12 years old. But I've never talked about it because no one else ever mentioned it. It's not like an intolerable shittiness either - just a vague discomfort and a gray moodiness (bleh, whatever that means)

I think xqzmi described it perfectly - it is flu like. As a matter of fact about 8 years ago I began noticing getting flu like symptoms the next day - sore throat, fatigue, headaches, etc. I hope it's as simple as vitamin deficiency. I'm going to try taking the B complex and Omega 3 for awhile and see what happens. Thanks xqzmi - you don't know how relieved I am!

fatigue and orgasm
Dear Dr.F: I have noticed a change in my "recovery time" after orgasm (specifically as my health started to decline in the late 90's). After orgasm I am wiped out often for days afterward and my mood is no picnic either. I am often moody and irritable with a capital I. I am presently taking testerone supplements and I still experience a surprising level of fatigue after orgasm. I am baffled at the level of fatigue I experience given the relatively short and sweet nature of this event. Do you have any suggestions about this?

Over Masturbating Damage
Hi. I've stimulated myself since I was 12/13 and now i'm almost 20. I havent had a specific patter though it was many times a day in the earlier years. Then I would stop for awhile and go back to it. As of a year or so now i've been trying to quit but have had little success. It's affecting my life and with the college work i'm finding this extremely difficult. I can't focus on my work, I cant remember things, and the easiest of tasks have become extremely hard. I exercise regularly and it doesnt help. Infact I head that its bad to masturbate and exrcise.
I really need to stop damaging my body and find a way to fix what i've done. How bad is the damage from what i've explained? What should my diet be? What can I do? I hate this addiction and want it to go away! My life is in ruins and falling apart more and more each day b/c of it. :(

masturbation and back ache and weakness

This is Rahul here.I am a 24 year old boy and I have completed graduation and will start working in three months time from now.I'm sorry my mail is lengthy but i think I need to describe my problem in detail.

          At an age of 12 or 13 I started masturbating occasionally.As I grew older ,without knowing its ill effects i started doing it more frequently.In the early stages I used to do it thinking that it would stop my nocturnal emissions.When I was 16,17 & 18 I started feeling very weak after regular masturbation.As a consequence the frequency of nocturnal semen emissions increased further.I was a shy kind of a guy so I could not discuss the problem with my friends.By this time I lost concentration and started performing badly in studies and simultaneously i got used to watching adult fims.This addiction has grown ever since .In the mean time I have consulted various ayurvedic doctors and learnt about the ill effects of masturbating and i have also taken various ayurvedic medicines.The medicines have helped me and i have stopped masturbating but once I watch an adult movie I invariably feel weak and give into masturbation. My physical condition is such that I feel weak all the time and my knees eels weak.I have a lower back ache which increases when i masturbate.My energy level is very low.There is a weakness in my legs also.I have also developed an uneasyness in my head im not sure if its relevant.I want to become a good man and want to be fit when i start working.kindly suggest how will i be able to rejuvenate my body ache and sexual health and gain my childhood energy.will

( Only joint pains )

Why do I get knee pain after ejaculation?
I am a 20-year-old bodybuilder. My knee joints hurt usually after I ejaculate. Why is that so? I hear strange cracking noises when I squat. Does ejaculating a lot affect knee joint lubrication? Do heavy weights affect squatting? What can I do to make these sounds and pain go away? Should I limit my masturbation to a month or week? Should I take any joint supplements, even though the doctor has told me that I am too young for Glucosamine? I do need to use heavy weights when training my legs. Please advise.

Doc's answer : The only probable connection between your ejaculation and knee pains might be that the strong muscular contractions of ejaculation can cause some musculoskeletal pains. There is NO other connection.

Masturbation, feeling sick
Hi! Im an 21 year old boy, and it seems ive got a problem with masturbation:
After doing it, i feel really bad for days, i feel week, have a lot of headaches! and my libido is at 0. Also, the days after ive got a lot more of PVC's (heart related).
Then, if i don't masturbate at all for about a whole week, then i start feeling good, energetic and my libido is up again, and i suffer from much less PVC's.
On Friday ive got an appointment for an Echocardiogram...

Masturbation sucks energy out of you?
I don't know why everywhere on the internet they say it is healthy,natural,normal......blablabla......
my personal experience taught me that it makes me feel tired, unbalanced, acne, dark spot under the eyes, affects sports....etc.
and it takes so much time to recover to normal full health, i think it takes over 2 months....
the occurrence of wet dreams takes more than 2 months after stop masturbation.
i prefer to forget about it and do something else when i feel horny
aren't wet dreams the natural way instead of masturbation?

really down as in, the world is a big black hole, he cannot concentrate, cannot work properly, cannot communicate properly, his speech is even slurred now that i come to think of it. certainly cognitively impaired... one time he even forgot his own name! he goes about his daily activities as if in a dream... brain fog i suppose. he really hates himself during this period, I guess. and is paranoid, thinking the world is out to get him, trusting no-one. he is woken at night by these thoughts.

never put it in these terms before, so concisely... seems to make for some kind of mental illness. he is otherwise an intelligent, creative person, although he is immensely insecure, especially during these "pois" episodes if that is what they are.

he has never seen a doctor about it.

This does sound similar, perhaps it is POIS. It might do him some good to get involved here and post about his experience. By the way I understand his aversion to meds, I am the same way.  It's great that you are being supportive.

Thank god.  I can't believe I found this thread.  For the last few years I've had the EXACT same symptoms described here. 

After orgasm;
fatigue especially in legs, flushing, depression, fuzzy thinking, tired to point of feeling fluish, insomnia, sore throat, emotionally sensitive... that improves after a day or two.  Protein bars seem to help but it may just be the sugar content?   I also drink lots of organic milk and I thought I read in a post that someone improved after cutting out milk. 

I few years ago I took amino acids for thyroid support, way too much, and that is when my POIS started.  I probably burned out my thyroid by accident.  I also masturbated lots when younger.  Hmmm.  My symptoms are much worse when I masturbate as opposed to wet dreams...could be emotional response then to being alone??

10mgs Paxil nightly to help sleep.

WE NEED TO BREATHE PROPERLY TO CREATE ENERGY FOR LIFE.

El Stonio,

Did you get my reply to your PM? I hit "Send message" and nothing seemed to happen, so I tried it again and got the same result. You had asked me if DHEA still helps - yes, it does.  It's funny that I got your message today because just this morning I was reading articles on the 'net about studies showing that people are being treated for depression with 30mg-90mg daily doses of DHEA (an endocrinologist I consulted said I could safely take 25mg-50mg daily).

Does masturbation make the body weak?
My 17 year old friend told me that before he would masturbate up to 4 times a day. He would do it when he felt the need to do it. After masturbating, his body would feel with weak. When he would go out to do a workout (he's in track) his body would feel tired even before the real workout started . At school he would be very sleepy since according to him he masturbated in the morning. Now he stopped and his body never feels weak anymore and he feels with more enery and feels great on those workouts for track. He also doesn't get sleepy during school. I kinda agree with him because i feel the same way as well but I don't know.I feel better when I don't masturbate my body is just more energized for some reason. Any comments or ideas on if this could be true.

My eyes are in good health otherwise, I just had them checked, I don't need glasses, i've lived in both dry and humid climates.
It doesn't matter what kind of orgasm I have either, you know, hard, easy, multiple, light, mind-blowing, ho- hum, etc.
Also does anyone have any remedies to this problem?
I literally have to wear 2 different types of eye concealers to hide, what looks like a black eye, (people have actually asked me who decked me can you believe it!) and after an orgasm I have to wear sunglasses due to the soreness.
Please, if you know anything or if you have this too, please let me know.

I've been masturbating since I was 13 and now nearly 20. I now masturbate more than usual. I think the max I've pulled off this year is 7-8 orgasms in a day. I masturbate around 4 times a day otherwise. I've been having a problem where I get very tired after masturbating. Get big circles under my eyes straight away after the high and everyone says I look tired all the time. I feel tired also. I get headaches all the time and feel lower back pain. I am very short something I've found with people who overmasturbate. Is there any way to reverse the effects of overmasturbation? I know it definitely has done damage to my body. Is there anything that can relieve my body of overmasturbation? Vitamin pills....etc?? I see that masturbation changes your body chemical/hormonal balance completely and depletes your testosterone levels so when you try build muscle  you can't. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Back pain, tired and the black circles... :) Signs of adrenal weakness ?

My legs start paining after 15-20 mins of being erect while stroking lightly. After ejaculating my legs keep paining and I feel week all night and a day. I tend to masturbate ~5 nights/week. Could this be due to a little to much masturbation or should I see a doc for some tests?

post ejaculatory symptoms
I am a 52 yr old male. At age 32, I had left epididymitis, which resulted in atrophy of the L testicle. The testicle does not seem to have changed recently.I have been treated for prostatis periodically since that episode.

My current issue involves post- ejaculatory pain & other symptoms. For the past 8 months, I have experienced the following Sx for 5-7 days after ejaculation:
- frequency, dysuria, hesitancy, nocturia
- low grade pain in pelvic area & left testicle.(3-5 on
 a scale of 10)
- low grade nausea
- night sweats, low grade fever
- malaise
- urethral and bladder tenderness to palpation
- at times, the whole pelvis area feels "on fire"

The symptoms seem to resolve after 7-10 days.
I have been through a 30 day course of Levaquin, as well as Flomax. The symptoms resolved by 80% while on the antibiotic, but have since returned. I remain on the Flomax.

This may not be related, but (through a process of elimination) I have found that the symptoms are exacerbated by NSAIDS and aspirin. I have L3-S2 epidural injections for lower back pain q 4-6 months.

CBC is normal, TSH is normal, PSA is low, UA shows a few WBCs, significant RBCs, and epithelial cells. I have been monogamous for 35 years, and RPR/VDRL are neg.

Lower back pain after ejaculation
Hello. I am a 25 year old male. My girlfriend left me a few months ago , so I have been masturbating a lot recently. Anyways, I have been ejaculating 2-3 times a week. And my lower back tends to ache afterwards. Anyone know why this is? Am I not getting enough exercise? This has never happened before. My penis gets sore after ejaculating a lot, but never my back. Thanks for your help.

Does Ejaculation Reduce The Immune System?
I notice that everytime I ejaculate more than twice a day I tend to get flu in the next morning. So is there any medical explanation for this? I mean you know the sperm contains substances such as protein so if we throw them away a lot then maybe ... you get my point.
Additional Details
Im not saying it slowly kills you. All Im saying is that if we ejaculate too often without some time to replenish it then it will have some effect on our immune system.

Masturbation side effects ?
asked by: DoctorQuestion on March 8th, 2009
Due to too much Masterbation, I feeling memory weakness,Concentration weakness,depression,low energy level and lack of confidance.
plz tell me the solution.

133/  http://ehealthforum.com/health/damage-of-masterbation-t175159.html [nofollow]

I have been masterbating regularly since the age of 12. The frequency at which I was masterbating on some days was 4 - 5 times. As I reached the age of 18 this slowed down but I was still masterbating every few days.
I am now 26 and for the last few years I have noticed physical weakness in my legs. At times I feel weakness when I clench my fists. There is also rapid muscle movement in my thigh, fingers, big toes etc - not all the time, every so often. My semen has lightened so much and I have noticed that my Penis whilst resting is becoming more and more floppy. I can still get a full erection but I end up ejaculating within a minute or so. I cannot seem to last a long time. After masterbation I get a burning sensation which lasts a long time on either side of my abdomen and this is becoming the norm. I am trying really hard to stop to the point where I go on for a couple of weeks and then give in to masterbation again.
I've had a general checkup with my GP and all seems fine. I've told GP of the symptoms (but did not mention the masterbation) and after thoroughly checking me out as well as referring me to a neurologist - they could not find anything wrong with me. This then leads me to think it has to be the masterbation. I just don't know what to make of this anymore!

I feel tired, irritable, and a lack of desire to do anything for that day. Any idea as to my condition and cure?

Why do orgasms make me sneeze?
Lately, every time I ejaculate, I get stuffy headed and start sneezing. My nose gets stopped up, and I have all the symptoms of allergy or hay fever. This lasts maybe 30 min. to an hour, basically a/b the same amount of time it otherwise takes me to get sexually stimulated again, after an orgasm. I've heard that male ejaculation promotes histamine release, but have never seen any evidence that it was sufficient to cause this. Ideas?

I have a rare problem after ejaculation. For several days after I have a sort of allergy attack to my own body chemistry. Ejaculation is fine with the normal stress relief and pleasure for about an hour. Then I begin to have muscle tightness throughout my entire body, especially my neck. I do not sleep well for several days, have night seats and am very irritable during the days. I do have fibromyalgia and this makes the symptoms 5 times worse. My ex wife had severe PMS and I've got to say my mood swings are similar. This problem is getting worse with time to the point where I am abstaining from giving myself pleasure of ejaculation because I feel awful for as long as 8 days. I have been to several specialists but with no answer. My hormone level is normal. I treat these side effects with nitrazapam but that just allows me to function. This problem also gives me high anxiety and confusion. Does anyone else have a similar problem and does anyone have suggestions.

agjchs, I am curious to know how old you are. I have read that you shouldn't take DHEA under a certain age.

nickthegr8, I have heard that breating properly can assist greatly with anxiety problems, as some people get so anxious they lock up and unknowingly stop breathing easy. I can't see any connection to POIS though. Are you saying that your POIS symptoms went away after learning how to maintain your breathing?

TESTOSTERONE SUBSTITUTE?

I recently stopped testosterone injections, 1) it didn't help POIS and 2) it's a pain in the neck running to nurses every 2 weeks and 3) it's controversial - some say it's dangerous, can lead to prostate cancer, so constant monitoring is not fun.

Does anyone have any suggestions about helping a flagging libido without testosterone? Thanks!
