My story and my plan
« on: August 22, 2018, 06:58:52 PM »
Hi all.

I am 19, and I started having POIS since I was 16. After ejaculating, I knew that something was wrong with my stomach. But going to the toilet solved the problem. I also had problems to focus (for example, in exams periods I tried not to ejaculate) which I thought it was connected to the gut issue (because after going to the toilet, those problems apprently disappeared).  However, the main issue was the digestive problems.
However, 3-4 months ago the problem got worst and worst, and now, after an O my digestive system get very irritated for 3-4 days. The left part of my belly is swollen (only the left part, very close to the navel). I have bad stool, constipation, flatulences, sometimes diarrhea, and indigested food. Those 3-4 days are hell for me, it's really difficult to do anything productive.
I only have a little brain fog the first day, but I am afraid that it can get worst with the time. If there isn't an O, my digestive system is perfect and I have 0 problems. The thing is that the bellly gets bloated instantly (1-2 minute) after having an O. I also can hear the sounds of my belly.

My parents don't understand me, the don't care about me and think I am hypocondriac. So I decided not to tell them more about this. I went to an urologist who did ultrasounds, didn't find anything and said that was psichosomatic.
I have been always very rational and calm, however, I don't have hope, I think that I'll not find a solution and this will be forever. Next month I will have appoinments with another urologist, digestologist and neurologist. But, as I said, I don't think they will find a solution. This is driving me crazy and I am not used to it, I used to know how to control my emotions.

My plan is, from now (elaborated with what I red in the forum): physical activity+ changes in my diet (no wheat, no alcohol, no smoking, no dairy products, more fruits and more probiotic/prebiotic foods) + Multi-vitalim Alive Nature's way + Fenugreek + Ginger tea (at some point I will try also with Niacin). If it doesn't work, I don't know what will be with me. I don't know what will happen with college (I have good grades) and life, in general.

I think I can live without sex. But having something chronic, something that a rational mind can't understand, and going to doctor and more doctors that don't find anything, will drive me crazy.

Thanks for everything to all. And feel free to say whatever you wanna say.

Hi arenaico, and welcome to the forum!

It sure sounds like you have POIS.   This syndrome is rare and not well known, so it is hard to be understood by others, and even by doctors.   Here, you will feel that you are understood, at last :)  That is not a cure, but it helps a lot on the psychological side.  And, as you have already seen, you will find lots of valuable info, here.

Your plan sounds good.  Even if you do not find right away a method to relieve your POIS, hang on, and try something else.   There are many different methods that have been proven useful for at least some members, see a list at http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2338.msg19448#msg19448  .

Thanks, Quantum!

Is anyone having the same experiences related to bowel issues?

Hi arenaico,

Many members have bowel issues and digestion issues while in POIS, and feel like they have inflammation in the guts.

There are members who have relief from those bowel issues by taking good quality probiotics. 

I do not have bowel issues in POIS, but I take probiotics anyway, because they are beneficial for my immune system,

Dear  Arenaico

I also had the same problem when I was in my teenage and early twenties.
Now also I have the gut inflammation problem but now the intensity is very much lower and bearable.
I don't know what reduced the digestion problem, may be I am now getting some restful sleep.

Try drinking arrowroot powder porridge.  It helps a lot with gut inflammation caused by pois.

We can always think, in general, that some foods are hard to digest than others. This is true for gluten, sugar or dairy products. As most of us have been suffering from bowel/gut issues after an Orgasm, a good approach could be to cut out the amount of these products just before/after an orgasm.

The intake of Fruits, veggies, rice or even fish could make a difference in this regard. In my case, I think I felt a lot better after using this dietary approach.
