The cortisol tests can show to a certain extent what level the adrenals are functioning at. You can do either spit, blood or urine tests.

Only problem is that we might have written to the wrong Jane Ashby. This one is a psychologist but has no "sex" at all in her CV. I emailed the Program Chair, hopefully he'll clarify. My email was sent to a Jane Ashby at U of Mass., if anyone can confirm/deny that she is the April speaker.
message from pois sufferer who fixed problem sounds eerily similar to Demografx situationI had the following through blood, urine and saliva test results:Low morning, afternoon Cortisol+low Dhea = Adrenal fatigueTreatment : Medrol/Hydrocortisone & Dhea cream/SublinguallyLow Cortisol levels/adrenal fatigue usually indicates Thyroid problemsFree T3 : below mid rangeTreatment : ArmourLow testosterone levelsTreatments :1st: Testosterone replacement (Bad approach)2nd: Testosterone natural boosting supplements (Negative)3rd: Hcg+Hmg+Toco-8 plus increase of protein and less carbs, more red meat, fish and lots of cruciferous vegetables ie broccoli (Successful)High prolactin levelsCabaser/Cabergoline/Dostinex at dose of 1-2mg E2d lowered Prolactin towithin the lower 1/4 range. High prolactin levels means lower testosterone levels.By reducingones high prolactin levels it will naturally increase testosterone levels.My advice would be to have your 4x saliva cortisol levels, dhea, total test+free/bio test,prolactin, Estradiol(E2), SHBG & FSH+LH levels checked either through your local gp/dr or through an independant lab like ZRT, Quest etcI also reimbalanced my neurotransmitter levels and this helped with the anxiety and overall nervousness feeling after an orgasm.Both my serotonin and gaba levels were below the level range.This is how I cured my POIS and it most likely will not work for everyone but at least you can ask your Dr for a hormone check up and request the hormones above to be checked. If doc asks you why then you can either lie or tell him/her the truth about POIS
I will see if the researcher has a way to contact jane ashby.
Demograpfx and was wondering did you take your test during POIS or out of Pois.
deloun--My "theoretical inclinations" with respect to POIS somehwat parallel what you have indicated in your last post i.e. neurotransmitter imbalance/s. However, to reinforce my inclinations (and I repeat these are just inclinations), would you be so kind as to list your symptoms from major to minor. The reason I ask this is due the fact that there is a clear spectrum of symptoms that have been identified in this forum. I have more of an amped up, anxiety response (with moderate fatigue)with insomnia, somewhat different than the majority of sufferers. With respect to POIS, based upon the totality of responses in this forum, it wouldn't surprise me if there were needed many different therapies and strategies depending on the symptoms. In fact, there are different approaches being taken by different memebers now. Also, some members have other underlying medical conditions which may complicate their POIS.
Girlwind thank you for highlighting that post and when you took your hormone test were they during POIS or out of it.
