Good to have some interest from U.S doctors into POIS and Waldinger's study!
im pleased i found them now, especially since they have experince with semen allergy.
Prehaps all the US forum members should all meet there for a day of testing!
Did they say whether they can get you on a hypo-desensization program?
Also hoping I have some questions about your symptoms, same as beforedo you ever get 'minor'/or any POIS from...
(b)mastubation without ejaculation and NO fluids/leakage?
(c)or mastubation without ejaculation but SOME fluids/leakage?
(d)how do NEs compare to (b)?
I asked about the hypo-desensization, but Dr. Nguyen didn't show much interest in pursuing it. I had only shared part 1 of Dr. Waldinger's study with him, so, although he had an overview of the treatment as described in part 1, he didn't have the more in-depth description of part 2. I will be sending part 2 to him and Dr. Bewtra. I also didn't press the issue much since I don't live in Omaha and wouldn't be able to travel there for treatment any way. However, because I live in Chicago, I may contact Dr. Dimov at the University of Chicago who played a small role in the semen allergy study conducted by Dr. Bewtra and Dr.Nguyen to see if he's interested.
To answer your questions:
do you ever get 'minor'/or any POIS from...
(a)arousal alone? No
(b)mastubation without ejaculation and NO fluids/leakage? Usually, there is some fluid so it's tough to say. Some symptoms if it's done for an extended period of time
(c)or mastubation without ejaculation but SOME fluids/leakage? Yes, but less severe--maybe 50%
(d)how do NEs compare to (b)? NEs are more like (c) with about 50-75% POIS
