You know, I'm no doctor, but I have an inkling that POIS may be caused by a parasitic infection. Put together all the information... carb + sugar sensitivity and cravings, fatigue, fevers. Don't orgasms temporarily weaken the immune system as well? I suffer from POIS and I just found out that I have Lyme and Babesiosis, two tick-borne infections. We shall see if symptoms persist or go away when I am treated.
Who is this sophiecentaur guy, I don't care about what he said because you can never understand until fall into our true circle of going in and out of pois. What i have to say his does he have any power to shut down this forum right now and after we all stop posting. We need this body of information for the future sufferers. WHAT DO WE DO IF SOMETHING IS TO HAPPEN TO THIS WEBSITE.

WHAT DO WE DO IF SOMETHING IS TO HAPPEN TO THIS WEBSITE. The issue seems to be resolved amicably. I posted his apology here yesterday. And after my posts, Counterpoints continued to post replies as to why we don't have a separate website, and those posts seemed to be acceptable as well.I think Martin at one time said that he was creating a backup for this thread?In any event, we've been given reassurance several times that as long as we were moved to "New Theories" (which we have been), we were ok.We resolved another concern, which included parents' concerns of kids coming here for school science projects who would possibly read things that didn't sit well with the parents. I have edited posts that were inappropriately worded, e.g., thos using profanity or "street talk". One or two individuals received PM's from me saying this is a Science Forum, and to please word their posts accordingly.

(1) The first issue that comes to mind is the "sex stigma" of POIS, and somewhat related to that, (2) our own individual privacy/confidentiality concerns and needs. Well, we should remember that HIV/AIDS was a worse stigma, yet it somehow managed to raise huge sums!
Then during the week, I'll call the newspaper reporter recommended by Mary Roach (when they ask "who's calling?", I'll say, "Demo", that should work! ) If this trial works, we'll have a blueprint for an expanded publicity campaign. "Next: Oprah interviews John21, but first a word from our sponsor, Fenugreek! Eyewitness News at 11!"
I had an NE night before last and I am ingesting more yogurt in case the cultures are helping me somehow. To me this is the most plausible explanation of what making me asymptomatic.
If possible I'd like to have a copy of the compendium made by Pyropeach.THANKS.
Sent just now via regular email.
Hi Demo !!Good Job that man !Neil
I can imagine the Oprah interview now, children asking, "Mommy why is his [John21] face so red?"
The 3rd question I have is what % of funds raised go to NORD for administrative, overhead, review of researchers, etc., or is that paid from Govt. grants?
Nice job guys,Congratulations!!!!Every day I type in google 'post orgasmic illness' to reach the forum. The first result is the forum's first page.
John inspired me and now I'm also trying yogurt diet - yogurt twice daily.
Martin (or anyone else who remembers), I tried a number of Google searches of the forum and I just couldn't find the post about who it was that saved our posts or said that they could in the future. Maybe I used the wrong keywords ("back up posts server"). Any ideas? Anyone?
As promised, I am reporting back on the tests I had run with ZRT Labs. I selected the “Comprehensive Male Profile II” that includes saliva and blood spot testing.
I just did an other backup it's more simple like that!
Demo, I can't remember the “T” numbers you had before starting the patches. Can you tell me again what they were so I can compare. I'm thinking I may benefit from “T” therapy as well. After 30 + years of this hell, I would take any improvement... even 25 %... not to mention the 70 – 90 % you have experienced.
SOME TESTOSTERONE TESTINGSomeone here asked me privately for my "free testosterone" testing results (much more was tested), so I thought I'd post it in case anyone else is interested:Before POIS treatment:(December 2, '08) reference range%FREE T 1.47 % 1.5 - 2.2FREE T 24.4 pg/mL 35 - 155After POIS treatment:(March 2, '09 after about 6 weeks of wearing T-patches)%FREE T 1.45 % 1.5 - 2.2FREE T 37.0 pg/mL 35 - 155Free T jumped 50%, from 24.4 to 37.0.Endocrinologist expects the numbers to keep increasing through June. If they don't, he'll switch me from Androderm T-patches 10mg daily to a pump gel to increase my testosterone.
