The fact that women get POIS is a major blow to the semen loss hypothesis. The fluid loss is closely related to sexual experience, so it's no surprise how this has been blamed for symptoms.
The semen loss hypothesis was destroyed for me when I succeeded in retaining semen at orgasm (Mantak Chia Taoist method) yet still experienced full-blown POIS!
To update my situation, I had some apparent success last week after I started eating more soluble fiber in my diet. Notably, the mental aspect of my POIS (which is the most severe aspect) was nonexistent.
Has anyone tried fish oil omega-3's for their POIS symptoms? Some formulations have different ratios of EPA and DHA, and may have different effects for different people.
I would name POIS as POIIS POST ORGASMIC INTESTINAL ILLNESS SYNDROME. Don´t you?
Demografx i appreciate all your posts . Stimulating effect on all of us. Well ... on me at least ! With what we have i think we can't be 100% sure if fluid loss is involved or not. I didn't read the book of Mantak Chia but (it's written on other forum) he say himself that with his technic you can ejaculate in the bladder.

Perhaps even a majority of people here do not suffer from bowel problems. I don't think the name is particularly important. Anything that means "unusual symptoms after orgasm" would suffice for the time being.
In regards to your psychiatrist, unfortunately it's unlikely that anything you say will change his opinion. There seems to be a lot of circular reasoning in psychiatry, so depending on his training and beliefs, anything you say that he disagrees with will probably only confirm in his mind that you really are neurotic and/or in denial. Good luck though!
A hypothesis would be that semen is useful when it stays exactly where it's stored to nourish all the organs around.
For those seriously suffering. There is a drug called cyproterone that will stop all sexual body functions.There is a period of three months in which your body needs to adjust. After that you can be sex free.This is a drug used by transexuals and eunuchs. Also you will need to also take estrogen to avoid hot flashes. So please be adviced that your body may feminize.However between 3 months of hardship and a litle less beard grow you can save yourself a life of misery.I am definitely going to try this.
So please take care and get professional advice before trying cyproterone. If you are still taking other medications then it would wise to get professsional advice about taking Vitex as well.

guthrie : if you are still watching this forum, would you please let us know how you trial of Vitex has been going? Thanks!
Only 18 years for me... It's amazing how an entire life can really be wasted due to this illness. And with the years i feel that pois is worse because it last longer than before. Please we need someone to find a CURE !
Hi sparx, to answer your question: I took Vitex for about 6 months. While I thought it seemed to be having a bit of an effect at first, it ended up being mostly minimal. So, after a number of months of no further improvement, I stopped taking it.
It seems improbable given all the discussion so far, but I'll ask anyway; Has anyone here experienced "ejaculation without pleasure" ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anhedonia ), but still suffer from POIS afterwards?
QuoteWe need to get an outside research endocrinologist to look over all our posts and recommend a cure!Hey demografx: I have put out word to alternative health care providers who are familiar with endocrine testing. I am still waiting... and waiting for a response. It seems like there's two categories of health care providers I've run into: those who smirk and condescend to the idea of POIS, (screw them!Yes--pun intended), and those who show some empathy and interest, but have absolutely no experience with it and are rather baffled by it. I am hoping to appeal to a few of the empathic ones. They are out there, but like needles in the haystack. Maybe we'll get lucky in time, with so many of us persistingand persevering as a united front. It is SO much more encouraging to have a group of us working on this, rather than just each of singly attempting toblast open the minds of all those many closed minded medical doctors. Cliche but true: there is power in numbers. Viva la revolution!
