I have POIS it usually lasts for 24 hours after sex
Dopamine:I took cabergoline for a period of almost two months. It suppresses prolactin production and increases dopamine.I have mentioned that in the last few years, when I've eaten sugary food, I've gotten extremely hungry, developed a headache, and have had trouble concentrating. This was cured by the cabergoline.Overall: Cabergoline made sexual experiences more enjoyable, and seemed to decrease the 'withdrawal' period I have mentioned. But it did not (obviously) prevent onset of POIS. So dopamine, for me, at least, is not an immediate miracle cure. It does seem like it could be worth further experimentation though, if I go through all of my experiences in detail.I notice that Dr. Selywn Dexter's patient tried bromocriptine, which is somewhat like cabergoline in what it does, and he did not have success with it.So for me, and likely others, the dopamine/prolactin link is probably not the primary mechanism of POIS onset.
A quick report on the progesterone. I tried a half dosage 1/2 hour before orgasm. Results - it didn't work. I only tried a half dose to test how my body would respond to progesterone. So, POIS was so bad I don't want to try the full dose and fail (go through recovery period again).It seem the POIS duration period is increasing for me - it takes 10 days to recover 90% and a month to recover 100%.

Thank you for your email.We can certainly get you tested usingthe US labs I work with.They will send you the test kit andyou simply take the sample and Fed-Exback to them - it's a very simple process.There are two tests:1. Test for all infections and good bacteria balance.$230 US2. The above plus digestion, absorption, inflammation - more comprehensive but not necessarily needed. If yourbudget stretches it's a fantastic option.$470I take payment for the tests and then the lab charges my account.Once results are in, we run a phone consultationto analyse the results and make recommendations(a 45min consult is $120)If you'd like to go ahead, please let meknow and we can arrange.Warmest regards,Dave.
guys i looked back at the article and realized a confusing part. " I prescribed norethisterone 5 mg (10 tablets)."(dr.selwyn dexter). Is that 10 5mg to equal 50mg or does each tablet contain .5mg of progesterone. If it means each tablet contains .5mg progesterone why is that concentration lower than lets say aygestin which contains 5mg norethindrone(norethisterone) each tablet. Lauracostis did you have to use 10 tablets when you used your norethisterone.
i am usually quick to try out new possible cures for pois, but i will let others test this one out first. this is one treatment that may be hard to explain if you were caught in the act 
Congratulations for chat room, Demo !
Thanks Mellivora for your analyse. I continue to compare premenstrual syndrome (PMS)symptoms to Pois symptoms and it seems a deficiency of progesterone is linked to it. --Welcome new sufferers!--Congratulations for chat room, Demo !--I tested B-12 vitamin 4 times now without major Pois episode. So for the moment I consider it helps. The effect is not as powerful as sugar free diet. I still don't understand why sugar work. Maybe should I test saccharin on my Pois(saccharin must affect endorphins but I wonder if saccharin interracts with hypoglycemic states = cortisol).
John, I can confirm to sugar free diet reduce my Pois symptoms and duration and less flu-like symptoms ("fever"), much less hypoglycemic episodes out of Pois (stress is the 2nd factor), and huge intestine improvement in-Pois and out-of- Pois (no more diarheas).
after an orgasm for me meant worse back ache, shoulder ache/hand, hot wrists and finger tips, blocked nose, cold nose, ichy eyes, sweaty type skin, ichy back, painful toes, severe red tip on tongue, depression, ED. lasted probably around 6-7 days, 2nd day generally worse but many times Id get a migraine on 3rd day requiring 24hrs to recover from. Although I had the signs of it in my teenage years (in denial for years) it grew into a real problem from the ages of 20-28.

I dont suffer from POIS anymore
Demo : I keep the chat open, but sometimes away from keyboard
daveyboy, I apologize.
In absolute seriousness, I think there may be some promise in consuming all of one's ejaculate.
Its my opinion that...an operation to have an undescended testicle lowered at any age can cause POIS later in life.
Are you SERIOUS, demographx [sic].........................
in fairness, he appologised, just forget it.
there is no test yet to determine POIS in a person
RE: John21 and H pylori John I might have missed some of your posts, but why are you focusing on 'H pylori' in particular?I have made a comment in the past that I am sure a number of people here could very easily be suffering from a gut microbiology disorder given some of the comments I have read about improvement resulting from less carbs, less sugar, or taking garlic or probiotics. I have suffered from IBS and food + chemical intolerances for years. The problems started around the same time pois symptoms first started. I used to suffer from bad stomach pains. I saw a gastro doc had few tests and was told there was no problem (focus was on celiac disease. I then saw an enviro doc who picked up on Candida overgrowth and I was treated for that and that was a big factor in my being able to return to work.I had a faecal microbiology test done a few years ago. It came back as having overgrowth problems with enterococcus + streptococcus + klebsiella. These bacteria effect fatty acids + intestinal permeability + cognitive function. My doctor while great in some respects, does not look outside pharmaceuticals when it comes to treatment. I had to go on laxatives for months and then a couple of antibiotic cycles. (no mention of diet or probiotics). I had a subsequent test and I still had overgrowth of the same bacteria just slightly lower readings. I then visited a naturopath and took some herbs which definitely helped and tried to stick to a special diet. My pois is not as bad, but its still there. I have not had a subsequent faecal test as they aren't cheap. I still have problems, though I don't always stick to my diet. When I take a herbal laxative (senna, liquorice, psyllium, etc) I feel much better cognitively for the next 5 days, which definitely helps to offset pois. Also these faecal tests don't focus on non bacterial parasites which could be a problem. Intestinal problems will definitely aggravate pois symptoms, but I don't know if its a cause, because not everyone here seems to have gut problems
In light of this should I consider asking my gastro about it, again?What would there be in the foods you mention that would make things worse?
