Actually, there are many ways in which a husband's physiology/body chemistry can be affected by his wife's pregnancy.  See here, for instance:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Couvade_syndrome
"Studies have shown that the male partner cohabitating with a pregnant female will experience hormonal shifts in his prolactin, cortisol, estradiol and testosterone levels; typically starting at the end of the first trimester and continuing through several weeks post-partum."

 
I'm not sure to understand the absorbtion. The wife used progesterone during her pregnancy (vaginal) and then the husband absorbe it during sexual intercourse (transdermal), is'nt it ?

Thisisme, Is there a way we can see that full article without the fee. I am curious if the doctor tested for levels of progesterone befor administering the medication.

Do you guys say we should contact the reasearcher, hopefully he is more willing than the others that have been contacted. His email is on the articles summary.

Yes, without complete article it's not easy to understand.

20 minutes after orgasm and lasted for 3 days. Symptoms described included headache (brain fog?), lethargy, impaired thinking, difficulty concentrating, tension, irritability, social avoidance and so on, all of which stopped after 3 days.

Clearly, it's Pois.

It confused me, too.

pheromones is possibly the only explanation.
im not sure anybody has been able to prove that humans use pheromones, but the other mammals on this plant do, so i don't see why humans cant.

I broke down and purchased the article.

It is about POIS and how a man is now 95% cured using this drug.

Also, we may have found a doctor that will work with us!

***EDIT - I've scheduled an appointment with the doctor tomorrow to review this article and ask for his input.

These articles are obviously invaluable as they provide credibility to our condition (and in this case hope).

god, this sounds like a breakthrough

I have spent 300 on accpuncture which has helped somewhat, though I broke this week and now have asore throat to begin with

I am wondeirng if I experienced this all my life without realising it, specially as it concerns dips in cofidence, social anxiety and feeling male enough

I often felt menancholy and a little tearful sometimes after sex in the past

but i thought it had something to do with being a scorpio

If it's like Waldinger's article, they say it's ok to send privately (email, PM) but not mass distribute it (e.g., posting)

POIS' Forum-Thread 3rd Anniversary



Hey, everyone! It's been 3 Years since "John21" posted the very first POIS post, kicking off the beginnings of this wonderful oasis! Thanks, John, and thanks, everyone here who has contributed, posted or visited, and Neil ("neilep"), our Naked Scientists' Patron Saint ;D for making this the great place to go on the planet for all POIS sufferers! Before this forum thread, nothing remotely close existed that understood POIS and cultivated POIS fraternity, theories, and solutions.

Norethisterone study

I wonder how this treatment compares (if it does) to my success with testosterone.

I agree with Limejuice that this study provides us with more credibility...and hope!!! Nice thing to kick off Year 4!

My only question - a minor one - is that a continuous pounding headache is the leading symptom. I'm not sure I've seen that reported much (at all?) at the forum as a prime symptom.

After reading the article, my sense is that the headache was *not* necessarily the man's leading symptom.  That is, if you had asked him, he would have listed the multiple symptoms listed in the Table in the article--i.e. symptoms which do match up closely to those described by most of us on this forum.

It seems that 'benign coital headache' is more medically acknowledged than "POIS" would be, so maybe the doctor-author framed it in terms of the headache in order to get the article published more easily.  But the framing in terms of headache as the primary symptom can then create a distorted picture of what the man's symptom's actually were!  So there's a loss involved in trying to fit the description into already-accepted categories.

I'm not sure what this means as to the potential relationship between norethisterone and cancer(no human studies done), but I thought I would post this link to be on the safe side:
