Quote from: CCconfucius on 25/01/2011 20:09:17Does anybody else have sperm in their pee after abstaining from the big O for a while and still recovered 100%. I think this might be the reason why am not recovering all the way, may be there is still minute inflammation. I do get this too. I think I had an O and at the time not noticed it. Then when you pee you notice the sperm. It's like an NE but then during the day. Could also be seminal leakage; I guess it's also related to premature ejaculation; some here mentioned that due to arousal they also get pois symptoms; I think it's the same here; the excitement just opened the gateway a little bit. I searched for this on the net and this could be due to high dopamine/high adrenaline/low serotonin and high histamine (though not confirmed). For now I'll try antihistamine as this also fights allergies. I actually had my pee researched a while ago. For a while I had the same as some other member mentioned; cloudy pee a few days after O and then feeling much much better. So I peed in a bottle, couldn't see through the bottle anymore and the next morning there were clouds in it. So took it to GP. He scared me first, he tested it at his office and said he found blood and then said it might be cancer. But in the afternoon he called me and said the lab couldn't find anything. But I was high in something that had to do with kidney stones, but still in normal range.

Quote from: Counterpoints on 26/01/2011 22:52:38About the scratch test.... If we have a reaction to sperm, I don't think it should matter if we are in POIS or out of POIS during the test. Indeed, we supposedly go from no POIS to "in POIS" by a reaction. Hmmm, I'm not sure whether it matters or not. My sense was that the scratch test does not necessarily bring about a full-blown POIS episode--I thought the 'positive reaction' meant a welt on the skin. And, in that regard, it seems possible that there could be a different sort of reaction depending on whether the body is already in 'antibody attack mode' (i.e. in the middle of a POIS episode).

Hi : Long term POIS sufferer - avidly following the POIS related news on this Forum.I'm wondering how a vasectomy would help/hinder. This is how wikipedia describes it: "..When the vasectomy is complete, sperm cannot exit the body through the penis. Sperm are still produced by the testicles, but they are broken down and absorbed by the body. Much fluid content is absorbed by membranes in the epididymis, and much solid content is broken down by the responding macrophages and re-absorbed via the blood stream. Sperm is matured in the epididymis for about a month once it leaves the testicles. After vasectomy, the membranes increase in size to absorb and store more fluid; this triggering of the immune system causes more macrophages to be recruited to break down and re-absorb more of the solid content. Within one year after a vasectomy, sixty to seventy percent of vasectomized men develop antisperm antibodies. In some cases, vasitis nodosa, a benign proliferation of the ductular epithelium, can also result. The buildup of sperm increases pressure in the vas deferens and epididymis. The entry of the sperm into the scrotum causes sperm granulomas to be formed by the body to contain and absorb the sperm which the body treats as a foreign substance."Is there a way to measure the antisperm antibody count? Are we suffering froma lack of these?
HelloI am 58 year old male having almost all the symptoms described under POIS. Thanks to my wife who gave newpaper clip related to this topic. She is the only one I had told about my problem and we both were wondering what exactly it is. I have been suffering for about more than six years or so. I will make a detailed post about how I feel and some related history as well. At this stage I would like to contact Dr.Marcel Waldinger. Anyone with his contact info..Please let me know. ThanksGhunna
Maybe it's not present in pre-spermOR Maybe the quantity is no enough to start the auto-immune reaction.And then why this delay ? 30 min in majority of cases in dr.M.Waldinger' studies. We need to make a statistic on the forum on this point.My delay : 240-600 min after orgasm.
So that fellow sufferers can follow along, I'm going to be seeing 3 doctors next week: First, my endocrinologist, who I will ask about checking my testosterone levels (I gave him copies of each of the POIS studies out there, hopefully he's read them by then)Second, my urologist, who I'll have to educate as he's not seen the studies as it's my first appointment with this particular oneAnd finally, my allergist, who is in the same class as my urologist and will have to be educated about POIS and injecting semen into me 8-0
I would like to contact Dr.Marcel Waldinger.
