Hi guys,

I have some good/bad news.

The good one is that I had an MRI done 2 months ago and it looks that the tumor has disappeared.
Now I 'm progressively decreasing the dose of the drug.

The bad one: as ever , I still get POIS and also I 'm constantly fatigued and in light brain fog state even when absteining for a couple of months. No change in my symptoms.


IgE   562,00 UI/mL   (<120,00)
IGF-1   279,80 ng/mL   (96,40 - 227,80)

From my last blood screening every thing was in range also the hormonal values, except IgE and IGF-1, that came out very close to the above values from my second last blood tests.

Something is wrong with IgE, but I don't believe to the allergy to semen theory.

But my doctor doesn't know how to further investigate it.

I was having higher expectations from being cured from the tumor.

I don't know what to do right now

Any progress on the High Prolactin end? I have the basic POIS symptoms after ejaculation. A moment ago I did the mistake of lightly stimulating my libido (no orgasm or ejaculation) and I feel a bit lightheaded (50% of the full version). This comes after 5 weeks of feeling great thanks to abstention.

My Prolactin was found to be high 6 weeks ago; my vitamin d is also depleted (11 ng), but my testosterone was at a very acceptable range.

I have never tried any of the remedies suggested in this website (niacin, Antihistamines, etc.) Could Dopamine agonists help? Anyone it worked for?

Check out your Iron and Ferritin mine were on the lower end and lack of it can decrease Dopamine synthesis so more Prolactin is unopposed by enough Dopamine

I also can remember that a couple of times in the past I had very strong erections without jelqing: it was when I couldn't eat almost anything because of gastroenteritis.
So: no food for some days (or a very small amount of food) ---> very strong erections ---> pois free.

I don't know what's behind that, pheraps SIBO is also involved.
Thinking about all those hypothesis makes me more confused.
Anyways I hope researchers will help easing my mind.

That is interesting. I can also feel big difference in erection when I have irritation(interestingly) in my gi tract, which makes things move faster. Ejaculation also has this effect of irritating my GI tract and can help a lot with harder erections. The more ejaculations, the harder erections. Go figure. It certainly seems to have something to do with bacteria and fermentation, maybe SIBO, but not necessarily, I think.
