talk to be given at the SSTAR meeting on Post_orgasm fatigue in Men-A spectrum on Syndromes, by Jane Ashby, to be given on April 4.
I have found 2 things that may be of interest to you.There is an article on page D6 of Tuesday Jan 20, 2009 NY Times on "SEx and Depression: In the Brain if not the mind" that talks about people who feel achy and depressed after sex, and talk to be given at the SSTAR meeting on Post_orgasm fatigue in Men-A spectrum on Syndromes, by Jane Ashby, to be given on April 4.This is a message from reasearcher i sent email. The important thing is the SSTAR, does anyone live close to arlington virginia, that is where the meeting is. Hope this helps.

I googled SSTAR, and found a link to their schedule, which mentions that talk, here:http://www.sstarnet.org/download/2009040205Brochure.pdfHowever, I used google to try to find 'Jane Ashby MBBS MRCP', but I wasn't able to identify who that might be.Perhaps the SSTAR people might have a way to get in touch with her...

Dear Ms. Ashby, Re: Your SSTAR PresentationI noticed with great interest your presentation at SSTAR. I am the moderator of a fast-growing forum for sufferers of Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome (POIS):http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=6576.new#new You are invited to visit and become more aware of our ability to help the 100+ sufferers who have posted here. We also have 200,000+ site views from people searching for support. Before 2007, nothing was available. I hope that you can help make this forum available to your audience of therapists, researchers and the sufferers of this agonizing malady. Some of our forum resources you may wish to look at: Forum member "B_Jim"'s POIS Forum Summary of All Cases, here as well as others on the Web:http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=6576.msg149009#msg149009 Forum member "Girlwind" has created an excellent POIS Video: A first!//www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWBxAUC9k1g And filling out the POIS survey created by Forum member "Counterpoints" enables sufferers to share POIS information and details with others here. This will also enable the forum to work more easily with outside researchers by having more organized data available about us:http://pois.olympe-network.com/POIS Research StudyWe have a copy of the first and only study on POIS by Dr. Marcel Waldinger, MD and Dr. David Schweitzer, MD.A copy (PDF) is attached. You might find this article in this week's NY Times of interest: "Sex and Depression: In the Brain, if Not the Mind"http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/20/health/views/20mind.htmlBest regards, demografx - forum moderatorPost Orgasmic Illness Syndrome

Knowing the uk tho the appointment probably got cancelled because I want quick enough xD will find out on monday.. guess what, going through POIS =D but only myself to blame would you guys class yourselves as very "sexual beings" ?Hi rapidgaming--I'm curious. I've had POIS over 20 yrs and am considerably older. I'm just wondering what a younger person suspects to be the cause. I wish I could go back in time and theorize. Do you have an inkling, or are you like most of us, totally perplexed ? Yes to your last question. I'd love to hear your thinking/intuition, even if you don't know.
For those saying that it's a physiological issue, I say that it most certainly is not.
Cutting out all caffeine and sugar has dramatically reduced the effects of POIS. I'd be interested to know how many people have caffeine on a regular basis (even if just a small amount). Staying away from caffeine isn't a solution. But it definitely has helped my cope with the side effects of POIS.
