Neuroendocrine responses to arousal and orgasm
« on: January 19, 2019, 09:10:59 PM »
  The time course for various neuroendocrine hormones, neurotransmitters and heart parameters are shown below. Including prolactin, testosterone, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), Luteinizing hormone (LH), cortisol, growth hormone (GH), dopamine, DOPAC, HVA, 3,4-MHPG, 5-HIAA, histamine, adrenaline (epinephrine), noradrenaline (norepinephrine), glutamate, GABA, aspartate, taurine, oxytocin, vasopressin, beta-endorphin, melatonin, blood pressure (systolic, diastolic), heart rate, natural killer cells, and cytokines (IL-6 and TNF-alpha). The below graphs show that dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), oxytocin, prolactin, heart rate, blood pressure and natural killer cell activity are highly correlated with the sexual response.

"Indeed, it is notable that different neuropharmacological factors impact thresholds for seizures and sexual climax in similar ways, likely reflecting overall propensity for activation cascades to spread through neuronal networks: thresholds increase with elevated GABA receptor stimulation, but decrease with elevated glutamate receptor stimulation, dopamine agonists, and dopamine/norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors"
-What is orgasm? A model of sexual trance and climax via rhythmic entrainment (2016)








Dopamine inhibits prolactin through the D2-dopamine receptor (Ref).


"the orgasm induced a moderate but statistically significant transient elevation of the cytotoxic/suppressor T cell (CD3+CD8+) numbers (Fig. 2). In contrast, the absolute numbers of T cells (CD3+), T helper cells (CD3+CD4+), and B cells (CD3-CD20+) were not affected by sexual stimulation...the levels of LPS-induced proinflammatory cytokines (IL-6, TNF-alpha) remained unaffected by masturbation-induced orgasm...The effects of orgasm on peripheral lymphocyte subsets were restricted to NK cells and had minor or no effects on T or B cell subsets and showed no effects on (IL-6, TNF-alpha) cytokine production, indicating limited and selective effects of orgasm on immune system functions in parallel with its selective and short-lived neuroendocrine effects." -Effects of Sexual Arousal on Lymphocyte Subset Circulation and Cytokine Production in Man (P Haake, U Hartmann, et al., 2004)

Amazing, nanna1!
10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business

This is all posted long time ago on the nakedscient... this is all normall proceses in
response to sexual stimuly, arosaul.
Those days i try to resarch and test on perpes why my body react hipersenzibile on sex
and film induced(ewan abstinence for years from film arosaul) nothing change.
So i try to resarch whot cemicals in exes couse all this reaction in my body, and cant
figureout yet.

Cofee help after pois hit me, my body is like shutted dow all
endocrine functions properly(cofee help because supose cortisol lift and help fight inflamation)
and probbly adrenaline raise help to when body is shutedd down.
But what intriguted me that when i recower, i cant drink cofe because make me sick,
i crashed from small amount of cofee when i recowered from pois.

That lead me to thik that in recowered fase, contsant and enormes amount of cronic
stress, play big part in pois, always in inflamatory state.

So,when i look in edocrine , for exemple adrenals , also doesnt lead me enywhere
by symptomes, nigdher adison cant fit in me here

https://www.hormone.org/diseases-and-conditions/adrenal/adrenal-incidentaloma

On odher side, nidher cushing disiese cant fit here(bisase my resarches that big
mayority of poisers hawe hi cortisol)
https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/cushing-syndrome/symptoms-causes/syc-20351310

Then, my resarching lead me to adiction part and witdrawls symptomes and i
wonder is my brain loook like this
https://upliftconnect.com/your-addiction-makes-perfect-sense/
https://imagenesmi.com/im%C3%A1genes/addicted-brain-9b.html

And again it doesnt fit in my case, because i hawe strong will power, i can cut eny
adictive behawior in "shor"t periods of time.
For exemple, film(porn) abstinence for seweral years dosnt get rid of me from pois,
and in my testing on masturbation,  if i masturbate i can watch pornography but i
radher masturbate on my natural womans who i know or meet in real life
(you know, naturall in 100%).
So, adiction part dosnt fit also....

Well HOP it can also be low Catecholamines, I don't know why or how but a test should be done after orgasm to be sure.

Nanna, so porn is worse for you than cocaine because you lose more dopamine for a long time? Or is that the wrong conclusion of your shared pic?
POIS since 2000. Very bad since 2008. I knew that I have POIS since June 2010. Desensitization since March 2011. I stopped with desens in July 2016. I have 50% less POIS. And only 1 day of POIS. Purified CBD works for me, but I am allergic for CBD.

When you have 18 old year, I agree watchin a porn will make you release a lot of dopamine. But when you will be as old as me it will make release no more than a silent film of 1950 :D

Nanna, so porn is worse for you than cocaine because you lose more dopamine for a long time? Or is that the wrong conclusion of your shared pic?
This is what porn does to your dopamine levels.


While porn is being viewed, dopamine levels remain elevated. But when the porn goes off, dopamine tanks. It's called the Coolidge effect.

So if someone views porn for more than 3 hours it will become more addictive than doing cocaine.

Here is the full explanation:

Yes, this is well  known, but how this fit in pois?
Ewry click wich exite you on net act the same like this.
Some pois symptomes is similar like withdrawls from drugs, but it doesnt fit there
if you look diper.

Recently i write about this, and do some test on perpes, and obserwe
how weving explicit video for 20 min hit my body in pois state,
After long period of abstinence from arosaul. Ayes and
facilall change, sagy face pois state but not full blown, because no O, E.
So i can feel that my budy is filled with enosrmes amount of chemicals
wich cant be procesed properly.

So question? Is this all pois couse is dopamine receptors in brain downregulated?
And itspermanent damge, not inwersable?


For exemple, cut adiction in longer periodof time, you should feel beter from pois
and owerall health, but in practice this doesnt hapening.
You again hawe a pois tha damage your body.

I used to believe Hardcore Porn or Masturnation before puberty it the cause of it. I don't think im addict to porn tho. I think pois suffered only watch porn skip all the part to best scenario then ejaculate very fast. Yourbrainonporn.com anti porn site. i think most of them are pseudoscience. Porn is healthy tho. i think pois suffered can't watch porn for a long time cause of premature ejaculation.

I'm adding this review paper to this thread. It gives a very basic overview but is well readable: Biology of Sexual Dysfunction

I wonder if I take an L-Dopa supplement, will that also increase Norepinephrine and Epinephrine levels, since the former are made from dopamine?

that is why i tried cabergolin 3 years ago and now i'm constantly on it
prolactin is the anti libido definitely
so keep your prolactin at lower reference
me personally can feel it very sharp
if my prolactin more then 250 i feel like crap especially after big O
if my prolactin is less then 80 i feel much better, much stable and can have several big O a day

and i totally agree that there is a dophamine depletion after big O for sure and i guess not only dopa very much probably some more substances depleted including hormones
and its not so easy to restore them
so far i tried L-tyrosin, DMAE, N-acetyl-tyrosin, noopept no luck :(
but i tried sulbutiamin recently and it gave me a good energy and mood boost
« Last Edit: February 09, 2019, 09:36:34 AM by david »
current protocol: 24mg test. cypionate subQ every day, Cabergoline 0.125mg every 5 days, Alcar 2 grams per day, NALT 0.6 gram per day sulbutiamine 2*200 every day highly potent vitamins each day = no pois at all and in addition now have quite decent motivation

Maybe taking both L-Tyrosin and Sulbutaimine or anyother vitamine B like Niacin or Folate might help? Maybe you have an issue with L-Tyrosin metabolism.

Wolf berry makes a point: we all need to be more careful about recommending any form of treatment here, from POISer to POISer.
