I don't think anyone on this forum takes my writings seriously nor believes me but still I'll update you.

Two major things happened:

I finished my neurofeedback therapy and my anxiety/confused thinking levels have been declined. In regards to POIS I have discovered that even my 1 day POIS is less severe. Sometimes in POIS I still feel that I have energy sucked out of me. POIS is much awful when I masturbate and the worst If I masturbate before sleep - second day is lost in ashes.

second thing: I had 10 days of intense drinking episode. After that my gut transformed into trash machine. I had to visit gastroenterologist who prescribed 3 months of in-and-out antibiotics and removing lactose from my diet.

My life is getting better and I wish you all forum members healthy and happy life <3

One thing I forgot to mention. Antibiotics have been prescribed because of SIBO  :)

I can very much relate to this!
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

For me POIS is just the trauma triggered by orgasm. Now I'm convinced.

Hi @lw I have been following the thread and am intrigued by your statement around trauma being the trigger for symptoms. I have been suffering with POIS that seems to last as long as 14 days after sex. I have spent the past 3 years abstaining from any sexual experiences, and have been successful despite a handful of sexual encounters. The problem I have is that my general mood/well-being seems to have deteriorated while abstaining.

I recently discovered that I have candida and have been doing what I can to clean out my gut. However I begun to notice numerous signs that POIS symptoms just might be linked to trauma that has been stored within the body. I can totally understand how the majority of sufferers cannot begin to see the correlation between physical symptoms and emotional/mental well-being (even though the two are intricately linked). I have found after spending a lot of time committing to therapies that promote emotional and mental well-being I have seen SOME improvements.

Would you mind elaborating more on what you have discovered/experienced around trauma and POIS symptoms. Would you say your POIS symptoms have disappeared due to addressing your emotional and mental wellbeing? Did your POIS threshold gradually decrease down to 1 day or was there an overnight decrease in lagging symptoms.

Thanks

Just like mentor I have candida symptoms and Nystatin makes me feel better.
One thing I started recently is developing a strong morning routine and it makes a huge difference to my days. I did have to spend money and see a life coach to develop this routine but because I made this investment in myself it gave me an incentive to take it seriously and do it everyday.

Heres what I do:
Leave phone on other side of room to where you're sleeping
Wake up at 7-45
Drink two big glasses of water
10 minutes of mediation deep breathing with grounding pillow under low back and grounding band on leg - these make the mediation effects 10x more stronger
Read 10 minutes of a book preferably "The greatest salesman in the world" this teaches you discipline as you have to read the same chapter in this specific book for a month until you can go to the next chapter. I'm gonna get this book soon.
Then I do 10 minutes of affirmations or limbic system retraining exercises
Then I stretch and do anterior pelvic tilt exercises on top of that for 15 mins
Then I do 20 pull ups and push ups
Then I do skipping for 5 minutes
Do you notice a difference in your mood and anxiety after doing pull ups? To me they help a lot. Best thing is they're free in good weather, we have free public pull up bars everywhere in parks here.  :)

Okay here's what changed:

I'm currently on month 2 in my diet that Gastroenterologist prescribed my SIBO. It's basically in and out ofr Probiotic-Antibiotic cycle.
I also changed my sleep schedule and I'm trying to go to sleep no past 12 AM. I'm using some drugs to have deep sleep.

I jeezed 3 times today and I experience only slight discomfort.

from 5 day POIS to this feels like a blessing.

One thing that my gastroenterologist told me and might be also worth mentioning: I'm emotional person and I exaggerate every experience with my nerves.

Wish You Best guys. I hope you will get better soonl I truly do. I know how awful it is.

Yes it's fine to me.

One thing I'd like to add to my case is:

When I have stressful episodes in my life POIS flare up again. I feel very cold and shallow in my brain and my creativity deminishes greatly.
Stress is major component for my POIS I guess - deep worry that I'm unproductive and boring always clouds my mind.

Since I have POIS in control - I can fully understand reasons behind it I'd love to help others. I'll try to write comprehensive and coherent journey that I've had since 2016.

Wish you best of luck.

since I have stopped eating dairy I feel much better. I have Lactose Intolerance. I didn't pay attention to how much impact it had on my gut micro-flora.

Great to hear.

I also had interesting experiences with dairy, but maybe more from the protein part not from the lactose..
These days I only drink goat milk and I feel very good from it, no digestion issues and no pimples.
Also raw(!) cow milk is fine, pasteurized is not fine.
Internet is full of articles of A1 milk vs A2 milk.

(I don't have issues with aged cheeses, they don't contain lactose anymore and the protein is modified, AFAIK)

Yea, but i think lactose is more in your head condition, then
meaning more psychological isue...
Sibo alsou, antibiotics and probiotics wont help there..
It is all psychological... ;)

lactose intolerance is not a mental problem, its an actual digestion problem.

i suffer from severe lactose intolerance, and its without any doubt not a mental problem

Yes. I agree, I have maintained the position for a while that POIS was only psychological, which from my new perspective is partially true. For me, at least, psychological nervousness played a significant role. Other factors include: Stress, bad digestion, SIBO, lactose intolerance, shame and guilt from POIS, bad sleep quality (especially during POIS)

I think it likely has different causes. My sleep is pretty good (especially during COVID), I don't have any shame or guilt from POIS as sex or masturbation is healthy (I have the same symptoms from both) and I'm a pretty sex positive person, no lactose intolerance I believe although I don't eat a ton of dairy, not particularly stressed other than about some health issues, digestion only gets really bad during a POIS period, etc.

We're all quite different, so I think we're unlikely to find a single cause.
