[POIS] seems to be a form of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome [CFS].
I sent an email to the CFIDS association of America.
I sense that perhaps you are cautious of my pro-chastity/ anti-lust tack, as you know it is founded in my faith, which you reject. Am I right?
My doctor subscribed me an SSRI (can't remember which one though) when I told him I had post orgasmic illness, because he thought I was depressed. I took it for about 4 weeks, only to make me very tired. And I had no libido at all (I always have libido, except in POIS). I didn't try orgasm as far as I can remember.Another note: nocturnal orgasms. I wanted to get more testing done, but these nocturnal orgasms keep interfering for the last 2 months. Any ideas how to get rid of them? I tried lying on my side, but didn't work. My natural healer gave me herbs that made me feel very tired this week (main component: ostreae concha), so quit them and looking for something else. Thanks.
have there been any other studies of POIS? besides the first one? (sorry to interrupt)
Anybody else having problems posting?
We all know that we can find hundreds of studies to back up almost any conclusion, no matter how preposterous! (My career background is in the research industry).
And so I realize that I could be dead wrong in my assumptions about the effect of "permanent" abstinence on others' psyches and physical health.
Hey guys reporting on alpha 20cI had a seriously unwanted Full NE but I used Alpha twenty right after and also before i went back to sleep at end of day. 5g powder form. I don't know if it is fluke or not but my symptoms have improved. No brain fog Extreme tirdeness dissapeared I will report on concentration tomorrow and socialization after about two weeks. I don't know if i am a naturally quiet person or may be i am being affected by pois, i should know in about two weeks.
Artosophy--Isn't it great to discover fellow sufferers? This forum will make you feel better, even if it's just a little, tiny bit. Every nugget helps. This is an optimistic bandwagon. Its synergy is definitely bigger than its individual parts. I salute you for your perseverence. I had an absolutely terrible time in my mid 20's-But I came out of it. Now I'm coming out of another lousy 20 months.Excellent, compassionate members here and a very conscientious moderator. Good Luck.

Admirable open mindedness 
Remember, everyone laughed and discounted [POIS] on the internet? That wasn't good.
"you know, I'm free, it won't happen this time"-----WRONG----Curses, Spoiled Again
I considered myself a victim of an absurd hoax, punished for doing something natural and enjoyable.
I used to use DMAE long before finding this forum. It didn't seem to combat the POIS, but rather just give me a little mental boost to fight the brain-fog...kinda like how cold medicine just masks the symptoms of the cold.
Well I am about to finish my THIRD bottle of Relora (each last one month if you take three per day). I have had an orgasm about everyday! Also, I never had that "craving" or empty feeling that I used to after orgasm that made me want to keep doing it over and over and over. I can control myself now. When I get the urge I do it, that simple. I have tried abstaining; It's not that hard. But after a day or two the urge becomes strong and I eventually have an orgasm.The MOST AMAZING part is that during the past three months I have NOT, THANK GOD!!!!, NOT felt the kind of mental depression and misery that I used to feel. I don't know if I am now acting "normal," because I forgot how that used to feel after 5 or 6 years of such horrible separation from "normal." But I feel great and at peace with myself for once. I no longer worry about the effects of orgasm. Also, Iam not sure if it is good that I am so dependent on Relora. If I had enough money I would buy enough to last me the rest of my life. I can't be sure that Relora is the cause; It could be a placebo? or even the vitamins I take daily. All I know is that I DONT feel how I used to after orgasm. THERE IS HOPE FOR ALL!!!!!!
operation concentration did not succeed - I had to super force myself to focus in classes. Memory seems to be still shaken I was able to conversate though but without any jokes but that was cool. I was able to feel that high you get from exercise. ON NE good luck with that. I tried sleeping using a bottle but brain orgasm will get yah.How does five hour energy shot feel during POIS I used it once(decaf) during pois. It made me talk all day but didn't fix memory problems and concentration.
Forgot to mention... Caffine from Mountain Dews does have a noticable effect. I am not sure to what extent, but it seems that caffine and Relora don't mix well.
I also remember reading Demo's results were all below normal.
Time to quadruple my DMAE dosage.

Tarkington--Could the plant extracts that constitute Relora serve as a sedative or relaxant that has blunted the "craving" you talk about? It sounds like the compulsiveness to engage in a certain behaviour significantly diminishes. Could the extracts in Relora act as a type of inhibitory mechanism to balance out whatever may cause compulsive behaviour and the resultant depression. I have a bottle or Relora on my desk, but I have not tried it yet.

...I was addicted to having an orgasm after an orgasm...
Blood Test Results:An endocrine revieled my blood work results:Testosterone - NormalProlactin - NormalTSH - Moderately high 5.9I showed her the POIS study and asked her for other possible ideas what is causing POIS. She only recommended me to another doctor, "you've exhusted endocrine, check with a urologist."
Technical problems: have not encountered them yet here in Holland. I have made a full back-up of this forum. If anything happens to the site Demo, you have my e-mail so we can put it back up then.
I'm still waiting for my GAD to be finally gone, but the fiend still lingers.
