Title: POIS instant symptoms very similar to lactose intolerance
Post by: mike_sweden on March 22, 2021, 09:58:20 AM
Seems to me i get an almost instant stomach problem after orgasm, it very such reminds of an lactose intolerance. i get almost instantly bloated and get a very poor digestion.

any thoughts on this?

does orgasm produce milk or lactose or something, prolactin??

it also resembles an IBS reaction.

Mike, I also get gut problems for a few days after orgasm: Gas, feeling like I have to go number 2 when I don't, bloating, cramps sometimes.

If I avoid orgasm, my gut is manageable with the right diet. ("MCAS-friendly" diet works for me; Low-histamine, and avoiding histamine release triggers.) But after orgasm it'll act up regardless of diet.

I don't know what it is, but I'd guess in my case it's an inflammation of the gut, as I get a whole bunch of inflammation symptoms elsewhere as well.

Many medical sources have shown that the immune system is closely tied to you stomach, small, and large intestine (some say up to 70% of the immune system is controlled by the gut).  This could explain why POIS symptoms bring about gut issues (as the immune system is responding to the POIS).

I also get gut issues while in POIS.

Lactose poll here: https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=3029.0

In my own theory, an orgasm triggers bacteria growth signal. This makes existing bacteria go crazy and produce a lot of bad stuff which then triggers bloating, headache etc.
(Headache is one of the lesser known signs of lactose intolerance)

Norepinephrine increases bacteria replication and decreases immune system (source0 (https://www.atsjournals.org/doi/full/10.1164/rccm.201604-0862CP),source1 (https://bmcmicrobiol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-2180-14-180), source2 (https://www.jwatch.org/na46468/2018/04/30/norepinephrine-enhances-bacterial-replication-and))


Other members in forum reported that if they eat less FODMAP (or carbs in general?) on day of orgasm, they have less issues after.

I've tried oregano oil capsules before orgasm as a method to lessen the gastro effects, but i'm not sure yet if it works.
