I wonder if it could be related to your 'technique'? There are many ways of getting to orgasm - some can be pretty traumatic and could lead to severe hangover effects.
there are many unknown nuerotransmitters in our bodies. My POIS is not the severe brain fog type. Mine is more amped up hyper with depression. Only modest fatigue. I think mine is connected to anxiety. Thus, I am trying to balance my neurotransmitters. I am making some progress with my supplements. If I can get rid of my anxiety disorder, I will approach POIS with the same type of therapies, and maybe the new neurotransmitter balance with carry over to POIS. My latest theory for me is that I have some type of unhealthy reaction to my own stimulatory neurotransmitters, thus autoallergy. We will see.
DIAGNOSTIC TEST LIST FOR HORMONAL and OTHER DEFICIENCIESTo check out if one's particular issue with sexual exhaustion or other related symptoms might have a physicalcause, it's a good idea to get ALL of one's HORMONES checked. Here is a list of the tests that I did, some of which revealed clear deficiencies.Hormone TestsFree Cortisol and Cortisol--for adrenalsDHEA Sulphate--also for adrenalsThyroid tests (TSH, Free T3, Free T4, TPO-AB, Thyroglobulin AB, and Reverse T3), IGF-1 (that's growth hormone),Free Testosterone, Pregnenolone,FSH and LH, Estradiol, andProgesterone.Other useful diagnostic tests:Serotonin (the feel-good neurotransmitter). Vitamin D 25 hydroxy (many people are deficient in Vit D)RBC Magnesium (many people are also deficient in magnesium)Total Iron; Iron Binding Capacity; and the Ferritin test--the main intracellular iron storage protein. CBC (complete blood count), which is a panel of tests, that includes RBC and WBC, the Complete Metabolic Panel--another panel of tests which checks out electrolytes, protein, and liver and kidney functions.
Steve--I think that your description as an allergic type reaction may be accurate for some POIS sufferers. I think that general sexual activity triggers POIS as well as orgasmic activity.
Girlwind,I have just this last Monday gotten free health insurance.In San Francisco all you have to be is a citizen and you are entitled to coverage...
Hi Steve, congratulations on the new thread. Just wanted to say hi and best wishes to all.Glad to see the message expand!

I'm in the Monterey Bay area and we don't have health care like that. I paid out of pocket for all my tests andit cost me close to $2000. However, I do think it's worth it to KNOW EXACTLY what is off, and to be able to address that inwhatever way one can to correct it. Your list looks like a good start, but I think some of the other hormone tests would behelpful as well. Good luck with it.
Hey guys we cant be breaking apart like this. We are all perplexed by the same problem, we should be working together to finally reach a day when we all can say good byes with both smiles and tears on our face. It is too early for us to start separating. And we also dont have enough people and especially active people to separate like this. I was just going to suggest Girlwind, Steve D and Demografx talk through their differences during pm inorder to bring the two forums back toghter.
My partner and I talked at great length tonight about our objectives and we are clear that we want to do whatever is necessary to heal my illness. I am grateful to her for her willingness. So what to do? It seems to us that there are three solutions to this perplexing problem at the moment...and that may change with new information1) Learn to live alone…2) Be in a relationship with no sex…3) Be in a relationship where there are periods of no sexual contact and accept that when there are periods of great sex that there will also be concurrent and consequent periods of sexual illness, and I'm talking about non-orgasmic sexWe have agreed that 'systematic observation and experiment' may help and are going to do that this week...A little science couldn't hurt.Steve D.
