POIS strikes me too. My symptoms have been:lethargyderealization (can't describe this accurately... it's like the outside world is at the end of a tunnel or seen through a piece of plexiglass. light sensitivityreduced memoryreduced concentrationreduced speaking ability (difficulty putting thoughts into spoken sentences) social inhibitionSymptoms are strongest at 1-3 days, tailing off over the course of a week or so. Of course, after two weeks of not having orgasm I have other symptoms to deal with... In addition, I have acne that's directly related to my orgasm timing and frequency. Another weird thing is that a few orgasms results in the skin on a portion of the inside of my earlobes sloughing off and a clear, slightly sticky fluid being secreted where the skin came off. I have no clue what that's about, and I've found no one else with this problem.I think I'm just going to go celibate again for a while. :undecided:
Whoa, exercise does help increase my confidence and motivation, and reduces POIS symptoms.ALL - I'll be having blood work done again and would your suggestions for what to test for. So far I have:DopamineProlactinCortisolWhat else should I test for?
When we hit PAGE 100, to celebrate.................I propose that we get Counterpoints to fly us all to this fine POIS Retreat!!!
I'm still waiting for my ticket 
Thank you for the suggestions. I'll talk with my doctor to determine how many specific tests can be preformed from one blood draw.I intended on entering the blood draw in peak POIS so to look for issues - no fenugreek or relora and normal carbs. I think you would all agree with this.

I was recently talking with a Dr. about how this thread is growing at a phenomenal rate. It took about 1.5 years to reach about 30 pages... and then only about 4-5 months later we are at 100 pages!
