Poll #2 for POIS Research Team: End of Symptoms
« on: February 28, 2015, 09:53:45 AM »
For your answer about duration, choose the duration of POIS symptoms WHEN NOT USING ANY TREATMENT.

Please add more information in the comment section about what symptoms disappear first, and then what other symptoms disappear, in what order.  You can also comment on the decreasing severity of symptoms ( Example:  fatigue is severe for 3 days, than moderate for 2 days, and then is gone ).

Please be sure to also answering poll #1 and poll #3.

Thank you for your participation.  The more data the research team has, the best it is for all of us who has POIS.

Mental symptoms gradually ease over days 3-6

Chills become less frequent and less severe on day 4 and are entirely gone by six days.

Muscle weakness and aches gradually go from most severe to nonexistent over the course of day 6.

Other symptoms gradually recede after day 3 with the most dramatic changes over the course of day 5/6.

Pale skin/eye bags recover over 2 weeks.
Symptoms last 6-7 days. Onset of muscle weakness after 30 seconds. Symptoms include: brain fog, fatigue, depression, pale skin/dark circles under eyes,  digestive problems, difficulty taking a full breath, irritability. NONE of these are present out of POIS.

7-10 days. If I ejaculate before fully recovering, the effect stacks up.
Important note: I'm 40 now and have been having pois since I was 13 years old. The more I age, the longer it takes for the symptoms to subside. If for example I have an orgasm again during pois while at a period of hard work and increased anxiety at my job, the effects may take up to 15-20 to fully withdraw.

My fatigue and emotional symptoms slowly increase in the hours after O, reaching a peak the day after, and than decreasing and decreasing almost completely usually on day 3 .  There may be some residual effects of POIS on day 4, 5 or even 6, but only perceived in demanding situations that would have asked for top shape. All this is if I do not take anything before and after O for prevention and treatment ( if I take pre-O what works for me, I am 90% to 100% symptoms-free, and can also eliminate the rest with appropriate supplements.  In addition to that, POIS was longer when I was younger, but now is less severe and shorter because I have, through the years, developed a very healthy lifestyle ( very healthy nutrition, lots of water, meditation, yoga, exercise regularly, good sleep, stress management, .....)

When no prevention/treatment, cannot do sports on day 2 - that will cause me to have still more fatigue, dizziness, cold sweat, marked hypotension  ( not to mention that I cannot perform at all, too tired, no energy, no stamina, no motivation, and no interest in social interactions as well - just wishing I could stay in my bed, alone, of course) However, doing sports on day 3 will usually accelerate my recovery.
