More POIS cases found on the web.
I'm adding each new case. But the list is long so I need several posts. Please read p11, p12, p13, p14.
Do you feel exhausted for a whole week after ejaculation?
I just discovered that I have very rare syndrom (some call it Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome). After I ejaculate I have brain fog, I feel mentally and physically exhausted for a week or longer and if i don't prevent myself from masturbating I will constantly have brain fogness, low energy, tongue tied
... How did I discover this? Ever since I started masturbating (5th grade) I've been living a life in confusion. Now I'm 22 and last spring I started experimenting - trying not to masturbate for as longer as possible. After 2 weeks without it, I felt that energy was built up and I had incredible drive to do things, think clearly, talk to ppl easily. I simply felt normal. And I can destroy that collected energy with 1or 2 masturbations. Later I heard that Eastern Philosophies talk about connection between energy and masturbation. The worst thing is that I'm an artist and I can't do good artwork after I masturbate. I think that my condition ruined my life and I've never had a girlfriend
Well now I don't have a problem to get a girlfriend because I know how to keep my mind clear, my energy level up - with keeping my hand off my penis. It's a strange condition and most of you are luck to not have it. For some time I used to think that this happens to everybody, but no, its very rare condition.
Everytime I have an orgasam, I feel ill for the next several days
, longer if I have more of them. I get blood shot eyes, flu like symptoms, feel lehargtic, sometime I get a rash under my underarms, tense involluntary muscles on my scalp, ears popping, sweating increases
, etc. I discovered it is called POIS (Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome) and others have it. )Check out Doctorbob.com seb site and others for confirmation. this is not an imaginary illness, and it is embarrassing to talk about. Anyone know knything more about it? Is it being allergic to one's own hormones or neurotransmitters? HELP!!
by means of a wet dream, masturbation, or anything else results in a lack of concentration. Basically, for 5 to 6 day
s 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.

Zoloft failure but only 15 days !! He should do another test it at least 1 month.
Depressed after masturbating & other stuff
Hello. I'm a 22 year old male. I have noticed that whenever I masturbate, I seem to be more anxious and tired the next day
than normal. I feel like lacking in energy and just tend to be easily frustrated. What could cause this? I've been to acupunture several times because of restlessness&tiredness and general depressiveness. It has helped somewhat, but not that much that sometimes I don't feel very frustrated and hopeless about the way I am. Anybody want to offer insight? Oh, and I excercise regularly (lately astanga yoga and sometimes hiking)
Why do I feel like this after masturbation?
I'm 18 yr old, single & a virgin. Hav been masturbating for last 3-4 yrs. I feel dizzy & weak after masturbating; I feel like sleeping
. Why does it happen? Since I don't hav sex I feel masturbation is necessary for me, I just need to do it. What do I do now? plz help!!
Excessive masturbation = health problems?
I have a serious question and I really hope you guys can help me out. This is for guys and I'm sure whatever we can contribute will be beneficial to all guys who masturbate or have sex a lot.
I've googled before and have gotten different answers like "not harmful" vs "excessive masturbation results in reduced concentration in the brain/feeling tired all the time etc."
I'm starting to think the latter is true because I've been masturbating for the past 7 years quite often. I've been known to do it everyday for months in a row, soemtiems twice a day. Rare times I will not do it for a week or so, but then it doesn't last long.
I have since noticed (about 4 years ago) that my mind can't concentrate as well as before, I feel more tired/fatigued usually..like usually if I end up sleeping over 10 hours I actually feel worse and "confused"
in my mind as opposed to friends who say they feel "refreshed" after a nice sleep.
This fatigue/lack of concentration
sometimes doesn't appear but most often does.
Also, there are times when after masturbation a few days in a row, my left chest hurts a lil. I get scared but just usually stop for a day or so and eventually resume...
Does anyone know if this is bad for the heart as well? ie. makes ur heart beat faster (which is not good as it's working harder than it should) or potentially cause any heart problems?
See this site seems to talk about the "fatigue" that I feel:http://www.prostate-massage-and-health.com
Please be honest and share what you know.
What I don't get is that masturbation/sex isn't really that different, so people who have sex a lot should be in the same boat as me so hmm...
I really will try my best to stop, it's just so hard!
Note: I have a girlfriend and she really doesn't mind me masturbating on my own times (not that this matters to anyone but I feel that someone's gonan be all "get a gf" on me)
Why do i get REALLY tired after sex?
after sex i usually stay tired for at-least that whole day and now, more recently for a day and half
. i feel like sleeping
but when i try to sleep, i can't.
is there anything i can do maybe eat/drink something to get my energy back?
"I feel like sleeping" : perfect expression to define what i feel too....
Usually I feel drained the following day
after having sex the night before.

I feel soo tired and weak
after ejaculation. I will have to take Vitamins to recover and it will take about 1 to 2 weeks to fully recover
. If i dont take vitamin i dont know when i will recover. I will have diahrea, sweating feet
, sweating nuts and my whole body is breaking down
. So, right now im so afriad of ejaculating. What should i do ?
this question concerns my boyfriend and his masturbation "problem". Frankly, i'm at the end of my tether on this and so i'm looking for anything that will point me in the right direction.
His problem is that he gets migraines
, like clockwork, 2 days after masturbating
But here's the thing; if he's having sexual relations (actual intercourse or me masturbating him) with me, he does not have these problems. Only when he is masturbating himself. Only solo does he get migraines.
I found out about this because of his insistance to stop masturbating altogether (with varying amounts of success). Without having any religious convictions (he was raised agnostic) or any specific phobias (no feelings of guilt, sin, or wrongness...Or fears of making messes), he has decided to quit completely. He says that he had no migraines in the month that he managed it, and only gets them after masturbating.
My question is twofold, so here it is:
has anyone heard of this before, and/or does anyone have any theories or suppositions about what this might be? If I get ideas for questions to ask him, I bounce them off of him. Any thoughts whatsoever would be appreciated...
And 2) should I just, you know, drop the issue? I mean, it's not as if he needs "permission from [his] girlfriend to masturbate or not" (his words). But it's not the do or don't, it's the reason behind it that concerns me. The choice itself is fine. The grounds on which it is done need some looking into.

Guys - do you lose a lot of energy from ejaculation?
I know we all feel wiped temporarily right afterward. But I have personally found that for the next day at least
I am a lot more tired, sleepy at work, and have much less energy to work with. Also, if I am sick
, and I ejaculate, I always get significantly sicker. I would like to hear from other guys. Do you lose significant energy for a more extended time than the next hour or so? If so, for how long before you feel "normal," and how much energy would you say you lose (%) ? Thanks.
Ejaculation frequency and depression?
It seems like my mood is connected to the frequency at which I ejaculate. I know ejaculation takes away lot of energy from a man. I'm 26 male and single, and it I go two weeks or so without ejaculating I'm pretty upbeat and my moods are generally good. But, if I ejaculate once or twice a day, everyday for a week or two I feel low on energy, irritable, and feel very depressed
about myself and things in my life.
Anyone else dealt with something similar? Any ideas on how to respond to this? I'm very concerned about how frequent sexual activity causes me to feel depressed.
What can cause a man to be extremely tired after ejaculation?
My husband is 40 years old, we have sex about once a month- He is extremely exhausted after ejaculation- even if little other physical exertion is used. I would prefer sexual relations, but he is so tired after relations that I don't bring it up often (no pun intended) I love my husband very much, but our sexual life is not what I would like it to be and I am worried about him also. I don't think all men, age 40, have this problem, but I don't have experience with other men and don't know who else to ask about this somewhat delicate situation. Any advice for me/us? Any other men have this problem? And yes, it is a problem for me also.More
