Do you have POIS?
« on: March 07, 2019, 02:47:59 PM »
”Are you a POISer?” was just posted on the Welcome page for newcomers and/or Google searchers to help them determine if POISCenter is the right place to join for their particular disorder(s).

Everyone, your comments are welcome (post them here)...to improve the paragraph, e.g., should we include delayed reactions?

From the Welcome page:

Are you a POISer?

POIS is a rare condition in which affected men develop a cluster of flu-like symptoms after ejaculation that can include extreme fatigue; weakness; feverishness or sweating; mood changes or irritability; memory or concentration problems; and/or a stuffy nose or itching eyes. Symptoms may occur within seconds, minutes or a few hours after ejaculation. Most symptoms last for 2 to 7 days and resolve spontaneously. The underlying cause of POIS is poorly understood but some scientists believe it may be an autoimmune condition. Rarely, females also have been reported with POIS.

"Brain fog after sex"  It looks like the term brain fog has gained popularity since the days of chemo brain.
