So does that just about settle the fact that this is an allergy rather than a 'Mental' thing?
Hello Itsthatskater and Everyone,There is just no question -- NONE!! POIS is not caused by a psychiatric problem, too much masturbating, too much porn, blah, blah, blah!! I know that I am not the expert -- this is certain!! But it's obvious (should be blatantly obvious!) that the psychiatric/emotional wounds that accompany POIS (including that horrible "brain fog") is a result, not the cause, of POIS.I would list for you just a sampling of disorders, both rare and common, where awful psychiatric symptoms are part of the presentation of the REAL physical disorder. But that list would be so long that it would be a waste of space and your time.Obviously part of the depression and despair that accompanies POIS is the direct result of the isolation and the utter need for drastic altering of life style that POIS requires. However -- that's a normal reaction!! Humans are naturally meant to be sexual creatures -- how else would the species survive if not for sex!!??It's possible that some with POIS also watch quite a bit of porn. Means NOTHING (unless it's getting in the way of your life, job, etc).I hope I haven't come on too strong here or offended anyone. POIS is a physical condition --and a GENUINE NIGHTMARE that most of the public does not yet even know about. You men have got to do what you can to change that lack of awareness.Keep the research donations coming in!!! That's where your answer lies -- in basic, solid research. $5.00, or $5,000 -- every single dollar is PRECIOUS and will bring you all one step closer to the end of POIS suffering!Quote from: Itsthatskater on 01/09/2011 08:29:20So does that just about settle the fact that this is an allergy rather than a 'Mental' thing?Quote from: Itsthatskater on 01/09/2011 08:29:20So does that just about settle the fact that this is an allergy rather than a 'Mental' thing?Quote from: Itsthatskater on 01/09/2011 08:29:20So does that just about settle the fact that this is an allergy rather than a 'Mental' thing?
Yeah we all would love to see that! Over the weekend gather up 50 guys and tell them you are going to inject them with their own semen...
Lastly, you wrote that your POIS only lasts a day now, compared to 2 weeks a while back. I must have missed your posts where you explained what you did that has helped your pois. Can you re-explain pls?
Here's one from Yahoo! from our very own Vincent Marcus! http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110829161941AAQBF9JOpen Question: Has anyone used chaste berry (Vitex) to reduce their sex drive?Did it work? I have post orgasmic illness syndrome and after every orgasm (yes even including nocturnal emissions...) I am in physical/mental pain for days so I really need to find a way to reduce my frequency of orgasms.Asked by Vincent Marcus 3 days ago 1 day left to answer.Answer Question
Does anyone, when recovering from POIS, get a really bad migraine that feels like brain juice is going back into the head.
I've taken ginkgo biloba pills three times recently and I've noticed mild improvement in concentration and mental energy the hours following taking the pills. Each time I was about ready to take a nap to fend off my mental exhaustion, but after taking the pills I was able to stay awake for the remaining hours and fall asleep with no trouble at my usual bed time. I feel it may have had a slight anxiety-reducing effect as well. The first time I took a single 120mg pill around late noon and the only thing I noticed was that I didn't feel tired anymore. The second time I took three 120mg pills and 2 hrs later I easily noticed an improvement in my ability to focus as well as slightly reduced anxiety, however I also noticed a faint swelling feeling in my head as if I had a small headache although it was painless. The third time I took two pills and noticed the same effects, but with less of the odd swelling feeling. There were a few days in between each trial. Also I'm still taking fenugreek + garlic every morning.Next I'll try a single pill again to see if I missed the other positive effects the first time. I'll report back to let you guys know if repeated trials yield the same results for me.
Saw Palmetto did help reduce my sex drive. As long as I did not miss a day of taking the pill, my urges reduced SIGNIFICANTLY. Give that a try and let us know if it helps.
People,please don't forget there is another pois-forum (supported and created by this community), where we can discuss in topics (instead of in one long thread).http://www.poiscenter.com/forums/index.phpPlease have a look.Rocky
