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.
Taking "T" has help some of our members because it has reduced or stopped sperm production.
demografx have you ever tried an inflammation drug with your testosterone to see if recovery gets closer to 100%.

I think that my endo said that it reduces/stops at supraphysiologic doses.One of my pet theories has been that sperm regeneration speed is key. Slow sperm production correlated with my intense POIS. When it speeded up with TRT, my POIS disappeared as I more quickly became "full".
Hey EveryoneI have not visited the forum in quite some time. I was checking out some articles on google news and I came across the reports on the new study. It is good to hear that the condition started to get some publicity. I don't know if anyone remembers me, but on my last post I offered that for me the culprit is food allergies. I would have never expected a connection between food allergies and my poor cognitive condition after orgasm. The first time I noticed any problems with POIS was after orgasm, and I believed I had in some way irreparably damaged my body. Your body wants to return to a homeostasis and I could not understand why even after abstaining, that I would still be nervous, depressed, have an inflamed prostate. I started to think about periods in my life that I had felt better even without abstaining. I realized that I felt the best during the periods when my dairy consumption was zero. I started to research allergies and I came across topics about histamine and undermethylation. I realized that many of the same symptoms of high histamine corespond with my experience with Pois. An allergic reaction is a histamine release against what your body classifies as a threat. I actually did some testing through a naturpath and found that I do have a reaction to casein (dairy), gluten (wheat), and eggs. I eliminated these items from my diet, started taking co factors to increase my bodie's S-Adenosyl methionine, and also some herbs to reduce cortisol. It has been almost a year now and I feel great. I believe what was happening to me, based on my research and lab test results, was that food and environmental allergies were causing increased histamine levels. Increased histamine levels were decreasing Serotonin, Acetylcholine, and Dopamine. Dopamine is a Prolactin inhibitting factor, they balance eachother, and orgasm was just increasing Prolactin and inhibiting an already depressed Dopamine level. An increased Prolactin level also inhibits the release of Testosterone from the pituitary gland. I was conditioned to believe that orgasm had caused this condition because it was after orgasm that I felt the worst. They are correlated, but without causality. I am not surprised about the results of the new study. Some individuals on the forum disagree with the Semen allergy. Last time I posted, I urged everyone to consider food and environmental allergies. A semen allergy is possible, but I suggest thinking about other potential allergens once again. It is life changing. Best of Luck!

What would "supraphysiologic doses" be, compared to the 15 mg that you take for instance?. And do they shut down sperm at those doses or shut down the "T" production system at those doses.
It really would be interesting to see what happens to your sperm!!
Being that it "seems to conflict" with the Dr. Waldinger results, I'm really interested in what is actually going on in the "T" cases, maybe shed light on some viable parallel theory, or see how it may not really conflict somehow.
I just seen Dr.Waldinger interviewed on TV for a BBC 1 science program about Pleasure and Pain.He was talking about persistant arousal syndrome and it featured a woman with it. He seems like a nice guy!
