I have searched on the internet to know more about the pre-ejaculatory fluid and it turns out that the liquid mainly originates from bulbourethral gland, also called a Cowper's gland. I strongly see a connection from this liquid and my POIS symptoms as for several times I got some portions of the symptoms even when I did not have any orgasm. I only was sexually excited and got the symptoms with no orgasmic ejaculation in my previous POIS experiences.This time when I experienced the symptoms after the release of the pre-ejaculatory fluid I thought maybe there is a connection between the contents of this liquid and appearance of the symptoms.I justify the weakness of the symptoms in this case to the fact that there is less pre-ejaculatory fluid released. However, during a complete orgasm more of this liquid gets released and that might be a reason for the higher intensity symptoms after an orgasm.
Results:OMG - I feel fine. In fact I feel really good. I seem to have a lot more energy. Seems to have kicked me out of the POIS that I had yesterday also. Very Very minor signs of brain fog - I feel I could sit down and have a good conversation with someone, which is very rare for me after O. Am pretty excited about this so thought I'd write on the forum. Of course this still could be Placebo, or one of those rare times that an O kicks me out of POIS. I am still cautiously optimistic. Will keep experimenting and reporting.P.S- I am not sure about the long term effects of Niacin, I am tempted to up my dosage - but Probably won't until I research Niacin a bit more and what ill effects it might have.
Demo and Daveman,Was thinking about POIS research...I was hoping to humbly suggest two things.1. I was looking at the Poiscenter forum,- And thinking to myself, if I was someone who had POIS didn't really know anything about it and found myself at either of the two forums - There is nothing that easily introduces newcomers into our group. For example a 'What is POIS?', 'Do I have POIS?' and a 'FAQ'..that is easily found from the front page would help a lot of people when they land at the new forum. There is a lot of medical speak and theories which is the core of what we are about at the moment, but I was thinking it would be good to help people who know nothing ease into it...
Nice jivetalk, very nice. I can't wait till my xanthinol comes now! Been like over a week and nothing ><.
Hi Everyone,Apologies as usual for my sporadic appearance on the forum. I see there has been lots of recent activity I need to catch up with here! Well done.I've been asked once again by Dr Goldmeier to shout out to any POIS sufferers in the UK. He's an author of one of the few scientific papers on POIS and is trying to conduct more research. He's widely published in medical journals and is based at St Mary's Hospital in London and Imperial College. He's part of a unit that conducts clinical research in sexual medicine. He and his team really need more POIS sufferers to come forward and see him. Dr Goldmeier is very approachable, and you can refer yourself to his clinic at St Mary's Hospital in London, there's no need to get your GP to do it for you. Just send him an email at: David.Goldmeier@imperial.nhs.ukWhat's more it doesn't cost you anything to go and see him (except for your travel to London). Its an amazing opportunity to get POIS thoroughly investigated. If Dr Waldinger has 45 or more POIS patients in the Netherlands (as suggested by his last POIS research paper), its hard to believe that there aren't at least that many sufferers willing to come forward in the UK. Dr Goldmeier is willing to see any UK POIS patients and I think so far he's seen about 8. Simply get in touch with him by email. Dr Goldmeier and his team seem willing and able to look at POIS from all angles including investigating any immunological connections as suggested by Dr Waldinger. Even an fMRI study, something many forum members here have called for, seems to be a possibility if he can get enough POIS sufferers to see him. So if you're in the UK, and haven't yet got in touch with Dr Goldmeier, please take a step forward for your own sake and for the rest of us in tackling this illness that's affected us all so badly. I see there is much activity with NORD which is fantastic. I'll catch up with that. We need to pursue every avenue in getting this investigated.
Daveman, that's terrific. I've had blank looks from doctors in the past after they have looked up POIS on a computer database of illnesses to find it wasn't there. I'm sure it'll make a difference.

It would be awesome if high-dose niacin turned out to be a cure for POIS for at least some of the people on the forum. Having googled about niacin a bit, the main issue people mention is that high-dose niacin has the potential to cause damage to the liver. So if you are contemplating taking large quantities, swing by your local doctor and tell him about your plans. Even if your doctor is sceptical about POIS, it is his/her professional duty to give you a liver function test if you ask for one - whether you are drinking a bottle of whisky every day or taking high-dose niacin Some sites mention that taking niacin and alcohol together has the potential to harm your liver - I need to look further into this, as I enjoy alcohol and sex, and would rather not be forced to give one of them up!
