Glutathione Syntethase Deficiency is described on the NIH website at [/size]http://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/condition/glutathione-synthetase-deficiency[/color][/size]NORD would know more about it.Here's more info http://www.orpha.net/consor4.01/www/cgi-bin/OC_Exp.php?lng=EN&Expert=32My point wasn't really to talk about GSD as that's a super rare disorder. It's more to understand that a chronic genetic disease that renders someone unable to function could give pointers in trying to understand a less severe condition that has periodic and/or consequential effects on enzymes, hormones etc. which produce similar symptoms. The chronic condition may produce other symptoms and testable biological markers (e.g. low red blood cell count) that are not applicable in a non-chronic condition where there are refractory periods and where there is enough glutathione to prevent chronic damage of red blood cells by ROS while not giving so much that other detoxification mechanisms, or indeed the oxidative burst used by white blood cells to kill pathogens, can take place effectively.

Apologies for the formatting problems. For whatever reason, the site isn't displaying properly in my browser today. Looks like there was an update of the forum software and there's a few glitches.

That sounds logical but I still am intrigued by the idea that sweating might have prevented my POIS that one particular time and eliminated my other symptoms. It might be a good test for someone to simply use a sauna post-sex to see if it reduces or eliminates POIS with the theory that it might allow the body to eliminate what is disturbing it.

Hello, This is my first post to this and somehow any forum so if I violate some rules or something please let me know. Anyway I also suffer from POIS and have viewed this forum a few times over the past few years.
Feel free to ask me any questions as I don't know if this is the appropriate place/way to vomit information or talk about my experiences.

I am wondering if anyone with POIS (other than myself) has had any sort of DNA sequencing/testing done and thought about somehow using some sort of comparison to see if there may be some correlation between certain genetic sequences and us POIS sufferers?

Go ahead and share your symptoms and any remedies you've found to help you. Hypotheses are also welcome, but I don't find those as interesting. The only thing I can think of as far as rules is to avoid trying to advertise anything.
Taking fenugreek+tea/garlic, saw palmetto, huperzine, niacin, boswellia, and nutmeg.

I had the chance to test my idea that simple sweating might assist in preventing POIS.  What I did was to eat a greasy supper (something I don't usually recommend) , then following orgasm I ensured that I sweated a lot. I did this by putting on layers with a nylon jacket to block air escaping and did a bunch of physical work for a while.  It is something you might feel a bit silly doing but I think it may be beneficial. I ate the greasy meal because I was trying to replicate a situation in the past when my health improved dramatically following sex ( Ate pizza, had sex, then slept in a car and woke up roasting hot in the summer morning).  The result this time was that I did not have any POIS as it would occur in the past. The only thing I had was that later in the week I seemed to have a heightened stress level.  I am thinking that maybe this method holds potential and I would be interested to know the results of anyone else trying it. My thinking is that following orgasm our bodies are struggling with something toxic that it simply wants to eliminate, and that sweating allows it to occur quickly. One potential toxin could be heavy metals that are stored in "sexual" areas of the brain or sex organs that are brought into circulation when that area is activated.  It may sound farfetched but I think it is worth investigation. If the greasy meal actually helped perhaps the saturated fat acted as a means of a carrier to be expelled by the skin. I prefer to stay chaste now but if I did it again I would put more focus on sweating even more the day of orgasm, and maybe even days following. A sauna would be another good means of forcing the body to sweat.

It occurs to me that if this idea pans out it might work for an entirely different reason. It may be that heating the skin enables a bacteria or virus to be killed similar to what happens when we get a cold or flu. If this is the case a sauna following sex might be best as it probably raises up the skin temperature more than simply working up a sweat would.

Here are my (out of range) results from a heavy metals urine test:
Unprovoked:
Mercury => High Normal
Nickel    => Very High
Lead     =>  Normal
...........

This was something I used to wonder about as well. I had all my mercury amalgams removed many years back and it never made any difference to my POIs. I have also had a provoked heavy metal urine test and I did not score high on any of the toxic metals. It would have been good if I did as it would have given me something concrete to work on, like you now have. Heavy metals did not show up in my hair analysis except for titanium which was really high (likely from teflon frypans which I dont use anymore).

Given what I have read up about the chemical cascade that takes place during orgasm, I would be surprised that heavy metals would be involved. I dare say there are plenty more people effected by heavy metals than there are of us with pois. I would have thought pois would be a mainstream symptom of chronic low level HM poisoning if it was.

It is possible that the heavy metals are effecting you/us by say blocking key enzymes from working. Maybe certain enzymes that help break down excess catecholamines are inhibited because say mercury/nickel is blocking say zinc/manganese from activating them.

Yes garlic is a chelator but I dont think blueberries or spinach is. I feel a bit better on garlic and blueberries (but nothing to rave about) but not spinach. Heavy metal toxicity can effect your digestive system however. Changing your diet may help you excrete the HM better and that is maybe why you feel better. Your unprovoked HM readings were on the high side, so it would seem your body is disposing of them which is a good thing. An unprovoked HM urine test that shows no heavy metals is not necessary a great result as they can be locked up in organs/tissues. From reading chronic health forums such as PheonixRising you will find that HM especially mercury can cause gut issues for people. It is also associated with parasites so for some of us who dont feel so bad on a restricted clean (no sugar low carb) diet it is because we are reducing parasites and bad gut bacteria load which (maybe exacerbated by mercury exposure). I feel improvement taking chlorella which is a chelator but also helps detox bad gut bacteria toxic byproducts.

No idea on hot car event. Have you ever tried saunas?  They help you detox. Give it a go for a couple of weeks and see. The thing about releasing and mobilizing HM is that you can also feel bad so I would be a little surprised if someone with high HM felt instantly wonderful after taking one sauna/hot car sleep, but maybe.

I did some saunas and I thought they helped me a bit (nothing to rave about) but because I was underweight they really drained me. My head tends to feel hot and I definitely feel better with pois in winter or on cold days or walking in the cold section of supermarket, so I dont do saunas. I remember Demo saying something similar about the cold for him.

Reducing your mercury load should definitely improve your sleep. Not sure on Nickel. How would you have exposure to nickel?  Did you ever do a hair analysis?

I have not read of Taurine being used in chelation but I think it improves bile so that would help with HM detox. I have had improvement in my health recently (reduction in brain fog) from taking the mineral molybdenum. It is used in some key enzymes that break down toxic byproducts of candida and also other compounds like formaldehyde and alcohol. I had higher than normal exposure to formaldehyde around the time I got pois. My pois improved on it (I wanted to test it longer before mentioning on here) but that aspect seems to have worn off, but I switched to a different form, so I am going to go back to the original brand now.

I have read that oral glutathione has poor absorption in the gut. If you don't notice much it maybe be because of this. If so then give NAC a try, which helps build your production of glutathione.
At one stage I had glutathione IV injections from my CFS doctor. I felt so wiped out on them. I would have to lie down in the clinic or backseat of my car afterwards for a couple of hours.I don't know why I had such a bad reaction, but have read of some other people also not reacting well to it.

acronym, thanks for your thoughts. I think the nickel exposure was due to using pure nickel guitar strings. I'm guessing that the nickel powder got on my fingers which was then ingested by eating something like sunflower seeds or maybe by holding the guitar pick in my mouth. I am now being careful not to hold the pick this way and to wash my hands after playing. I also used to eat way lots of spinach which is high in nickel, maybe that contributed.

I've preached about mercury couple of times already on this board. Since the topic emerged, I thought I cut in again...

The thing with mercury is not as simple as having your amalgams removed and feeling a difference. It happens very rarely and sometimes people feel even worse after removal as it was done unsafely and significant exposure occured during the drilling out. If you really take the time to read scientific studies about mercury, you will discover that mercury is EXTREMELY TOXIC. It's so overlooked how toxic it is. Seriously, it doesn't even compare to lead, nickel or aluminium which are dangerous by themselves.

Also, it's scientifically proven that mercury goes inside your tissues and stays there forever if not chelated. That's why it's so difficult to trace with medical test. Blood and urine tests are irrelevant. Hair test can be helpful in a way that it can detect deranged mineral transport caused by mercury, but level of mercury would stilll be low on the test.

Here's Boyd Haley talking about mercury in hair and relation to autism:
youtube.com/watch?v=anirpRdz8I8

Many autistic children have problems with sexual hormones, very low or very high libido. Autism itself is an extreme manifestation of many chronic, systemic problems. POIS is one of the many weird problems resulting from fundamental dysregulation

Garlic is not the chelator. Neither are blueberries or spinach. Garlic is sulfury and has thiols, which are compounds binding mercury however not strong enough to result in excretion. Many mercury toxic people are sensitive to high-thiol foods without realizing it. The reason is thiol sensitivity is very tricky. You can feel very good for few hours after eating a thiol containing food due to mercury being bound. Then comes the downside when mercury is unbound again and redistribution occurs. Since most people eat high thiol foods daily there's no way of recognizing it and it's a constant vicious circle. More on thiols:

livingnetwork.co.za/chelationnetwork/food/high-sulfur-sulphur-food-list/

I'm convinced that POIS is casued by mercury. Since I discovered that I'm thiol-sensitive and restricted my diet significantly MY POIS IS GONE and I'm orgasming daily without any issues. As soon as I eat a piece of high-thiol food all the symptoms are back, however not nearly as bad as they were initialy thanks to chelation protocol I've been doing since few months. It may take some time but based on the progress already I'm certain I will declare a final victory.

Sorry, I missed your last posts. I"m interrested because I take taurine against Pois and which is a final product of cysteine metabolism. As I wrote my urine test is negative.

But I never made the link between methylation products and mercury. It makes me think something else.

I make a second post because I don't know if both can be linked.

I remember I posted a link of the Gulf War syndrome.
(wikipedia)

Symptoms :
Quote
chronic symptoms have been linked to it, including fatigue, muscle pain, cognitive problems, rashes and diarrhea

But there is a specific point of this disease called "burning semen syndrome" . I remember some guys described Pois symptoms.

Burning semen :
 
Quote
Now the Martins no longer have sex; after intercourse, Kim experiences cramps and a burning sensation: when her husband's semen touches her skin, she told Redbook, it feels "like it was on fire."1 Doctors have been unable to find organic causes for any of the Martin's problems.

Pois-like :
Quote
In Barrington, Illinois, the Albuck family is also suffering. Gulf War veteran Troy has fatigue, muscle soreness, swollen joints, and headaches, diarrhea, and bleeding gums. His wife, Kelli has hearing problems, migraines, and attacks of pelvic inflammatory disease. She reports that her husband's semen is a toxic substance that "causes sores--blisters which actually open and bleed."

Why your posts abour mercury made me think to Gulf War Syndrome ? Because some guys think GWS = mercury poisoning.

Methylation is very often impaired in mercury poisoned people. Taurine is one of the recommended supplements in Cutler's chelation protocol as it helps the liver to produce bile. Bile flow is needed to excrete mercury. However taurine by itself won't release mercury from the tissues, you need to take proper chelators in proper intervals that respect their half-lifes and minimize redistribution.

In the previous post I pasted link to the video where dr Haley mentions that Gulf War Syndrome was indeed caused by vaccines with mercury given to soldiers. On the mercury boards there are people reporting POIS symptoms and many different hormonal problems in general. Some of them are really rare and weird. They go away with persistent chelation

I agree with these elements. And I can add I made an anti-tetanus vaccine 20-25 years ago with possible mercury component just before my Pois start. Maybe coincidence maybe not.
And I can add I often had the same problem of "burning semen" as gulf war veterans. Especially after NE episodes, my skin became red.

The problem is it doen't match at all with my taurine experience.
The effects of taurine are immediate and it doesn't match with a chelation process, longer.
All happens as if orgasm or sperm regeneration triggers methylation and then inflammation which is blocked by taurine supplements.
The other negative point is I found testimonies on the internet of guys complaining of "burning semen symptom" but without any other syptoms, Pois or not.

I recommend to see "Trace Amounts" movie (traceamounts.vhx.tv) - story of a person who got poisoned by tetanus shot and initiated his own investigation on mercury.

But it's not only vaccines. You can be exposed through vaporing amalgams in your own mouth (or in your mother's mouth during pregnancy), broken fluorescent lightbulbs, broken thermometers or even eating tuna can daily.

I'm not really sure what you mean about taurine not matching chelation. Those are two different things. Chelation is the key. Taurine is only support, not essential to get healthy. It improves bile flow, improve magnesium absorption, helps you think clearly by reducing anxiety - no wonder it helps with your symptoms. However the fundamental problem is still there.

This is another thing that makes mercury so tricky. It can affect you in multiple ways with different combination of symptoms. Each case is different. E.g. It can make your libido uncomfortably high, but it can also make it non existent. It can make you sweating like crazy or not sweating at all. One can be intolerant to eating grains, others to eating meat. As I mentioned, some of the symptoms are very rare and weird.

The are reasons for this variety: age of exposure, your general level of health at the time of exposure, combination of other exposures (lead, aluminium, cadmium), organs where mercury is stored (brain, liver, heart, intestines etc.)

I know it's hard to believe that mercury can be responsible for all those things, but the truth is all of them are reported to go away with chelation. Reason why it's not popular and common knowledge is that chelation is not easy and takes time. It requires some faith in the process, where there may be no progress for a long time but actually worsening of symptoms just to have your health finally back after 1-2 years

I've read up a bit on GWS and did not think Mercury poisoning was the number 1 culprit in their case, but one of numerous toxic substances those soldiers were exposed to at various times. I think its an absolute disgrace how many of those soldiers medical complaints were dismissed and spun back on them (malingerers, mental issues) by the army and its medical teams and would seem the media as well. Soldiers are all loved as heroes (even if they man drones)  in the US but post war triumph, when they are unwell or complaining its a bit of a different story then I gather. At least now their condition is getting recognition but how many damn years and victim case reports and studies did it take!!

I'm surprised the specialists cannot identify the substance in the ex-solders semen that is burning them & their wives/gfs. While someone else here mentions burning sensation as part of pois, that has never been an issue with me.

Anyway Lupe, can I ask what protocol are you following for your mercury detox?
That is fantastic new you are getting noticeable results - especially with your pois. If it was not for pois would you have ever guessed you had metal issues?   

I was first born so would have got the biggest dose of HM from my mother. Given no issues in hair analysis or DMSA challenge urine test I don't think my doctor would prescribe me chelators. My best best would be long term low level detox with alpha lipoic acid + other support supps I'd say.

The American Dental Association - there is no risk to a patients heath what so ever when it comes to mercury fillings. When the dentist removes them, different story...suddenly its now considered a toxic biohazard waste substance has to be disposed of with utmost care in an EPA regulated procedure.

Thank you for posting this here , a very interesting story. I am not a doctor or a mental health expert but would like to offer an opinion.
I have not read the entire thread as to not influence my opinion in any way.


From what I have gathered of the thread, you are in suffering and feeling  a pain disorder.

''People with pain disorder (link is external)experience pain that medical doctors cannot explain. A person may distinctly feel a throbbing backache, yet doctor after doctor cannot give a physical reason for it. Clinicians conclude that these patientsí pain stems from their psyches rather than physical conditions. We know of course the mind is intertwined with the body. If there are no structural reasons for a backache, like a slipped disk or muscle injury, pain may originate in an active perception by the mind (i.e. nervous system) as opposed to passive reception of content. ''

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-superhuman-mind/201409/feeling-pain-is-not-there


This pain disorder is activated after ejaculation, your action being the trigger to activate the neural messages telling you there is pain there.

A sort of temporary  ''bipolar trigger''

''Psychotic symptoms in bipolar disorder can reflect your mood. For example, if you are in a manic episode you may believe that you have special powers or are on a special mission. If you are in a depressive episode, you may feel extremely guilty about something you think you have done. You may feel that you are worse than anybody else or feel that you don't exist. You can find out more about psychosis''

I do not want to pry into your history, but when you was young before puberty or in early puberty was there anything in your life you sore, heard or was bullied about that could have left a subconscious guilt that is activated by the trigger?

Does the problem persist if you get extremely drunk and then activate the illness?

Anyway Lupe, can I ask what protocol are you following for your mercury detox?

I'm following dr Andrew Hall Cutler's Protocol of frequent low dose chelation. ALA every 3 hours for 3 days and then 3-4 days break with 4 core supplements - vit C, magnesium, zinc and vitamin E. There are other protocols with chlorella, cilantro or IV chelation. However those are very risky and can cause major redistribution of mercury to different organs. Cutler's protocol is designed in a way to minimize redistribution through giving low doses and keeping the stable level of chelator in the blood.

Quote

Thanks, acronym. This is great question. The answer is no. Actually I would have never figure out it's mercury if my health wouldn't go downhill 3 years ago (major food allergies, sleep problems, anxiety, loss of weight etc.). I had POIS long before that (and some other minor problems) and only later I connected the dots. This also required long time convincing from users on other boards, so I'm not surprised that people here are sceptic about my theory. I'm trying to find right arguments, so that some of you can avoid what I've been through and hit the core of the problem right away.

Chelators can be ordered through internet. I would really recommend to try out Cutler's protocol and see if there's any difference in how you feel on ALA, which would strongly suggest that mercury is an issue.

Can you give detail on this? How might one feel while taking the ALA if it is chelating mercury?

Can you give detail on this? How might one feel while taking the ALA if it is chelating mercury?

It can be anything actually. In general look for subtle changes in how you feel. Most common are:

little euphoria, brain fog, more/less energy, tiredness, better/worse sleep, rashes, gastrointestinal problems etc.

Some may show up in the later rounds

Personally I was close to resign from chelation in the beginning cause the changes were very subtle. I'm glad I didn't. I just had the regular blood test done and I have the best results since 3 years. It matches the way I feel. It gives me more motivation to chelate regularly in 2016.

Happy New Year everyone!

Hello people

I have this problem for years now and it is ruining my life. I went to many kind of doctors but none of them could help me. I have tried many medicines but it didn't help. The problem is sexuality. Whenever I get an orgasm my brain becomes chaotic. I get brain fog, depression, anxiety and other mental problems. The brain fog is the worst part of it: I can't concentrate, focus, think clear and my short term memory becomes bad. This lasts for a couple of days. Then when it's good again I get another orgasm and there we go again: brain fog, depression, anxiety, ... . This is pure madness. And I'm not even talking about masturbation, I'm talking about 1 orgasm. Does anyone know how you can cure this? I have tried almost anything and this is driving me insane.

FROM Ahmed Maher ON FACEBOOK:
"Hello Guys . good evening . whoever suffering from depression i would like to tell him the cure for depression "only depression '' is by running exercises or aerobics it is the best antidepressant for pois . i walked and ran 6 kilos i have no depression for 2 days since then. but there is sideffect of exercise : the racing mind increase and tennitus also increase . u might get headache after this type of exercise so u might try central acting antihistamine and paracetamol . gaba or antianxiety meds after this type of exercise it helped me a lot to decrease depression symptoms so go ahead with exercise . i felt like there is detoxification happening in my body after running
 there is a hope 😊"

Exercise does help a lot. Especially running. Although when your in POIS its hard to get motivated to do it.

Anyway everyone please join the Facebook group. Its simply called: Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome. The more people join the better. Its a closed group so any posts you put up will only be seen by the group.

All the best for new year. Lets hope this year we get a step closer to some sort of effective treatment/cure.

Hi dcdx95

Try to orgasm just before sleeping at night,never masturbate,'' masturbation is the only reason of pois"then most of pois symptoms start and end when you are sleeping,

My symptom improvement from removing wheat from my diet remains true. Due to the shift in diet I developed a flatulence problem, which I was able to correct by eating wheat once again, at the cost of my symptoms returning to their previous intensity. I then determined that if I cut out dairy, meat, and eggs while cutting out wheat I was able to eliminate the flatulence while maintaining the symptom improvement. I've been eating a lot of rice, beans, potatoes, and oatmeal.

My hope is that eventually my digestive system may heal enough to allow me to eat animal products again without the embarrassing flatulence. As it stands now I seem to be able to eat them about once a week without it being a problem. I've also purchased activated charcoal and peppermint leaf capsules, which may serve as temporary fixes for when my will is weak.
Taking fenugreek+tea/garlic, saw palmetto, huperzine, niacin, boswellia, and nutmeg.

Hello everyone
     I am very happy to tell you guys how well eggs are helping me against POIS. I started eating eggs after reading Gcrisp post in the naked scientists forum. Gcrisp got POIS in his 40s or 50s after he was put on statin drugs for cholesterol control. Later Gcrisp realised that the cause was the statins, he then stopped the statins and started to eat eggs daily for POIS. He claims that he got cured of POIS eventually.
     But i am in my 20s and dont take statins.But  i started eating eggs for POIS. I ate 2 eggs daily. My POIS was of a type where my mind never clears , everyday i had brain fog. Only after starting the eggs i realised my POIS duration lasts for 5 or 6 days. It will 5 days if stimulation was for more than half an hour, and the duration was 6 days if stimulation was very less. After the 5th or 6th day my brain fog cleared. it was the first time in my life, after my childhood, i was able to think clearly, but brain fog used to set in after mild stimulation.
     So i ate 2 eggs daily. By 5th month of starting eggs, i had a strange experience. On a normal day without POIS, i woke up to the brain fog of POIS, i was so desperate and thought that eggs are failing, this brain fog lasted for 6 days. then on the 7th day the brain fog cleared. In that week i realised that my POIS duration has reduced from 5 or 6 days (depending upon stimulation) to 4 or 5 days (depending upon stimulation). I was so happy, at last something has started to work for me.
     Then by 9 months and 10 days of eating eggs my pois duration reduced from 4 or 5 days to 3 or 4 days. Before the POIS duration reduced i did experience brain fog for 6 days which was not due to POIS.
     Today after 12 months and 29 days my POIS duration reduced from 3 or 4 days to 2 or 3 days.Before the POIS duration reduced i did experience brain fog for 6 days which was not due to POIS.
     I am so happy.
     I once tried increasing the no. of eggs to three a day so that POIS duration reduction may be hastened, but it didnt work out. i think my body takes this much time to make changes.

Hello everyone,
I am happy2.  I found the cure for POIS at Christmas time.  I am now 100% POIS free.  B Jim, Daveman, or whoever, e-mail me, and I will let you know how I did it.  I posted years ago with a severe case of POIS.  I suffered for almost 20 years.  3 1/2 years ago I went to a urologist.  He said he had never heard of this before.  However, he told me to get on an anti-histamine, which I did.  30 days later, after being on Claritin daily I orgasmed.  I immediately got out of bed and popped 2 benadryls and as I reported 3 1/2 years back, this reduced POIS symptoms by 95%.  I went back to same urologist 3 years later, this last July.  He told me to get on Zyrtec because this was more powerful of an anti-histamine than Claritin.  I experimented with Zyrtec next POIS session on days 1, 2, and 3.  Usually with physical or mental exertion on any POIS day for me has caused fatigue, or crash days, the following days after POIS, days 4 and 5.  This time was different, however.  I had no crash days on 4 and 5.  So, I started taking both Claritin and Zyrtec together, daily.  Two months later, I orgasmed, popped the usual 2 benadryls, and waited, 30 seconds, 1 minute, and nothing.  Mind did not fog over for the first time in 20 years following an orgasm.  This occurred at Christmas time, 2015.  I experimented for the next 4 weeks, orgasming 12 times.  Every time was the same result, NO POIS.  Thank God I found this cure.  I tried one benadryl instead of two, and it did not give the same result.  So, to recap, one Claritin and one Zyrtec daily, and exactly 2 benadryls immediately, within 20 seconds or so following orgasm.  NO POIS.  Thanks to the people on this site that gave me so much information about POIS.  I would have never known what it was except for this site.  Like I said, moderators, feel free to contact me.  Thanks to all.

Congratulations for your succes.
It proves once again that Pois has an inflammatory/histaminic component.
It could be good to know why benardyl works better than claritine.
I had a bad experience with claritine and I'm not motivated to try benadryl :)

I just finished a two week of absistance. My life has been going in a good direction. I gave up porn over a month ago and don't even miss it. I know that this evil addiction has passed because, what gives, you face naughty pictures on the internet once in a while even if you don't want to and it doesn't trigger anything in me anymore. I just acknowledge it, and move on. I beat the devil..... BUT I did felt the need to ejaculate today to my own fantasies.

There is this guy on the other board called Sameer. He's been dealing with the same sh1t I am; that is elevated blood sugar levels. My sugars have been fine the past week, as normal as a healthy human beings, sometimes a bit elevated in between meals. I had to make adjustment and reduce my insulin dosages thanks to my healthier lifestyle. It gets a bit higher from doing weight lifting thanks to the adrenaline, but it passes within 20 minutes after the exercise is complete.

So today I just MB-d. I checked my sugar few minutes later and even an hour later. It was over 400......

For the past year I just put down POIS to being psychological and my health issues to living an inactive life. But after today I just feel suicidal. I want to kill myself. I don't know what's going on. I tried reaching out to Sameer but he disappeared. When you work so hard to make such changes in your life for better health and to be a better husband, and POIS comes and slaps you in the face just to fall back to that bottomless pit you started from. Should I just give up? Should I just kill myself? Anti-histamines would do jack sh1t about hyperglycemia, but I'm relieved to know that others have success with it. I've had POIS for the past 8 years before and after diabetes diagnosis. I want my life back so bad I could kill somebody to get it back. This is a nightmare you cannot wake up from!!!!!!!!!!!

2 hours after I ejaculated I have the following symptoms: severe toothache (wasn't there before), migraine going through left eye (wasn't there), depression (wasn't there), acetone breath (wasn't there), anger (wasn't there), feeling cold (wasn't there), cannot focus/concentrate (wasn't there), feeling dumb (wasn't there).

....So, to recap, one Claritin and one Zyrtec daily, and exactly 2 benadryls immediately, within 20 seconds or so following orgasm.  NO POIS.  Thanks to the people on this site that gave me so much information about POIS.  I would have never known what it was except for this site.  Like I said, moderators, feel free to contact me.  Thanks to all.
Happy2 I assume you are in the USA. Benadryl is not compounded the same in all countries, so people reading this should be made aware of this. In Nth America it contains Diphenhydramine (key active ingredient) but not in UK or AUS/NZ or some other countries maybe as well.

Do you have any other issues with histamine, like say feeling bad after wine or food allergies or hay fever?  There is a supplement out called DAOsin (contains Diamine Oxidase) which is for histamine intolerance. I have not tired it yet. I avoid foods I am intolerant too and my hayfever is not so bad anymore and a Zyrtec takes care of the few bad days. It is not cheap unfortunately, but this may be an option for some of us.

For me taking Zyrtec or Claratin never remedied POIS, but helped slightly with brain fog. I never experimented with 2 or 3 tabs at a time though. First generation anti histamines would knock me out with sleepiness, but I probably never tried something that had Diphenhydramine in it.

acronym,
I have no known food allergies.  The benadryl does have a hangover effect though day 1.  I can live with that though!  Brain fog, and all the rest of the pois symptoms kicked my butt.  I would encourage anyone to give it try.  2 benadryls within 20 seconds or so of O, and Claritin and Zyrtec daily.  I hope it helps somebody.  Thanks.

I was wondering if anyone else has selective IgA deficiency, which is an immune dificiency disorder.  I've been doing a lot of blood work recently and I found this out when testing for allergies (Celiac disease in particular).  IgA is a blood protein that provents agains infection of the respiratory system and digestive tract.

I cut out the Claritin a week ago.  Continued the Zyrtec nightly during that time period.  Last night nocturnal emission, popped 2 benadryls and it still worked.  Next morning, total clarity, just the effects of the benadryl to deal with.  So, still works, even without the Claritin.

Meteo74,
This is a reply I sent to one of the senior members of this forum just 10 minutes ago.  I don't know if it went through to him or not, so I will post it again here. 
The treatment is one Zyrtec every day.  And 2 benadryls within 20 seconds immediately following orgasm.  That's exactly 2 benadryls after each orgasm.  My urologist said anti-histamines are not a problem for the liver.  He said the only side-effect of multiple anti-histamines taken in a single day is that it "will just dry you out".  He recommended taking one Zyrtec every day.  So, to recap, the one Zyrtec every day and 2 benadryls immediately within 20 seconds after each orgasm.  I have used this treatment of 2 benadryls multiple times per day and it works every single time.  The only effect is that it puts me in a bad mood the following day with the benadryl hangover.  So to avoid that, I try to keep it to only one O on any given day of the week.  Hope that works.  Have a great day, any more questions, just fire away.

Hi Happy2,

Have you ever tried Hydroxizinum instead of Benadryl?

Read this: Protection against endotoxin shock by antihistamines and similar pharmacologic agents has been reported in the literature. The authors tested the validity of this form of treatment by animal experiments which were conducted in three phases. During the first phase, 10 mice each were treated intravenously with various doses of gram negative endotoxin to determine the dose of endotoxin which would kill 80% of the animals (LD80). This dose was determined to be 36 mg/kg bodyweight. During the second phase, 10 mice each were pretreated with various doses of either diphenhydramine (Benadryl) or of hydroxyzine HCI (Atarax) one hour prior to the administration of the LD80 of endotoxin. It appeared that high doses of diphenhydramine as well as of hydroxyzine were highly fatal to most animals by causing severe convulsions within 3 to 6 hours at doses of 40 or 50 mg/kg. Doses of less than 1 mg/kg appeared to have no protective effect, while doses of 2.5 and of 5 mg/kg, given one hour prior to the LD80 of endotoxin, had some protective value. In the case of diphenhydramine, 60% of the animals survived with 5 mg/kg pretreatment. Hydroxyzine hydrochloride protected 100% of the 10 animals so treated during the initial experiment and 90% during a subsequent experiment, if given 1 hour before the endotoxin. The third phase of this experiment was designed to determine the optimal time at which hydroxyzine needs to be given to protect against fatal endotoxin shock. Given 6 hours before endotoxin, hydroxyzine appeared to protect half of the animals, 1 hour prior to endotoxin, 5 mg/kg of hydroxyzine protected 90% of animals; if given simultaneously, it protected all animals. When hydroxyzine was given 1 hour after endotoxin there was a 70% survival and, if given 3 hours after endotoxin, a 40% survival.

I believe there is something to this.
I used zyrtec  once daily for about a week and the half before orgasms. Before the  orgasms I used my daily zyrtec about an hour before and 2 benadryls (about five to ten mins)  before.  I orgasmed back to back and then used another two benadryls right after the second orgasm.  I went to sleep and woke up the next day without that horrible fatigue, no feeling that life has been sucked out of me. I was surprised at this so I tried it again the next day following the same routine, the results were the same, no crazy fatigue.   
 
I don't think this is a fluke or placebo, four orgasms in two days, usually destroys me for weeks.

I could not see how it affects my cognitive symptoms.  I don't seem to recover 100% percent cognitively anymore no matter how long I go in between orgasms. Maybe if I use zyrtec for much longer I will see beneficial results cognitively.
I will come back to zyrtec and Benadryl  in the future I want to test other medicines/supplements.

I will warn zyrtec made me extremely sleepy, I will be careful using it and plan to go to bed much earlier than  you normally do. If you start using it, start on day you know you don't have to wake up early the next day.

CertainlyPOIS,
That's great!!!  I never used Benadryl before orgasm.  However, I found out if I don't take exactly 2 benadryls immediately following orgasm I get brain fog, without the fatigue.  Even if I only take the second Benadryl 3 minutes late, I'll get brain fog for 1 day following.  So if you're up for it, try taking the 2 benadryls immediately following Each orgasm.  Congratulations on the success.

I'm curious if you always take your antihistamines at bedtime before you go to sleep. Back when I used to use diphenhydramine(benadryl) or loratadine(claritin) for my POIS I would always dose before sleep and eventually I suspected that the primary way it was treating my POIS was by improving my sleep quality or just increasing the number of hours of sleep I got as sleepiness is an effect of those drugs.

Hi acronym
 I saw your message only today... I eat the whole egg.. I think POIS is due to reduced cholesterol synthesis in the body...moreover the blood brain barrier only allows negligible amounts of cholesterol to enter the brain.... So it takes a long time to see improvements
  I have not tried supplements like biotin, choline, B12. I dont get it in my country.... I have tried many prescription drugs and other supplements... But nothing helped...  Now i believe no drugs will help for POIS..I believe nutrition is the key for POIS...I have made significant progress with eggs since my last post... I will explain it soon..
   I used to eat commercial broiler chicken eggs bought from shops.. I have been eating these eggs for 15 months...now i get cold and fever once in a month... I suspect this is due to the chemicals they give to broilers for their faster growth.. So i stopped buying eggs from shops... Now i buy eggs from people who grow hens in their backyard..
   I think eggs from home grown hens are safe than eggs bought from shop.
