After suffering from POIS for some years and researching this board I have realized I have a very unique style of POIS.

Basically in short I have all the usual POIS symptoms I however only seem to suffer from the physical symptoms such as body pain, tinnitus (ear ringing), irritability/restlessness hard flaccid, stomach bloating and occasionally shortness of breath (this one is rarer though thankfully) I currently at this time suffer from no mental symptoms like depression, brain fog, insomnia etc Anyway these will occur typically after the 1st ejaculation.

However here's the strange part though.....

I have noticed if I ejaculate more than once the symptoms will actually greatly improve with each following ejaculation and by the 3rd or 4th ejaculation the symptoms 90% of the time all but disappears the ear ringing, stress, irritability feeling, hard flaccid, and especially the "golf ball" feeling in my perineum as well  as the "tight" feeling at the base of my penis. The ONLY one symptom that persists no matter how many ejaculations I have is the body pains which I usually fix by opening a capsule of 600mg Turmeric+Black Pepper and mixing it with water doing that knocks out 80-90% of the body pain almost immediately. (NSAIDS also have the same effect)

Strangely I have also noticed the more semen that comes out during an orgasm the better I always feel. If not much semen comes out I KNOW I'm about to feel horrible and if barely  and will need to ejaculate again and again to relief the symptoms. If a lot of semen comes out I can sometimes get away with only having to ejaculate once or maybe twice and feel fine. However if not a lot comes out I'll usually need 3 or 4 rounds (yea takes up a lot of f*c**ng time I know) and only then i'll feel better. It's almost as if clearing my body of semen makes me feel better it's very strange and like I mentioned previously each time I ejaculate the more the tight feeling at the base of my penis and perineum improves. The less semen that comes out the worse i'll always feel with virtually no exceptions.

I must also point out a few things about myself:

I'm a 32 year old male

I have delayed ejaculation and it usually takes me a long time to ejaculate even the first ejaculation can take a good hour

I've noticed when I kegel it worsens all of my symptoms and will especially increase the tight feeling in the base of the penis and perineum.

I developed stomach issues and digestive issues (IBS) almost the exact same time as I developed delayed ejaculation.

Around 5-6 years ago when I could cum/orgasm more easily/normally I didn't have these symptoms and only needed to ejaculate once and I would almost always ejaculate plenty of semen.

As mentioned above I suffer from Hard Flaccid and by proxy poor erection quality but just like the other symptoms the more I ejaculate and the more the tight feeling around the base of my penis disappears the better quality my erection becomes (Trust me it's strangest thing ever to ejaculate 3 times in one day and actually have a stronger erection compared to if you had only ejaculated once)

So just what on earth is going on with me? Can anyone else relate to this strange phenomena?

You and I have the opposite types of POIS.
You have only physical symptoms, I have only mental symptoms.
You have delayed ejaculation, I have premature ejaculation so bad that it can take me only 5 seconds to ejaculate at times.

It sounds like you may have prostatitis which sometimes improved by frequent ejaculation. I'd actually like to try this treatment for my own POIS but I'm afraid of being miserable for a long time.

Yes I have speculated that I may indeed have prostatitis or perhaps even CPPS (Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome) The only thing to makes me lean more towards Prostatitis over CPPS is the fact that emptying my prostate of seminal fluid seems to always help, especially in regards to the "tight" tension felt around the pelvic area. If it was a CPPS issue shouldn't multiple ejaculations aggravate it but yet having multiple ejaculations makes me and my pelvic area feel looser and less congested. That tells me I must have some sort of prostate disorder. However I have also speculated my delayed ejaculation may play a role because I've noticed over the years the less severe my delayed ejaculation is the more pleasure I feel in a session and the more I ejaculate in one session the better I feel. Once in a blue moon i'll ejaculate normally and within a normal time frame and will only need one session to feel normal just like I use to 5-6 years ago...before I developed delayed ejaculation.

As I mentioned in my previous post the only true POIS symptom I seem to have is inflammatory style body pains after ejaculation which I've had since I was a teenager 16/17. Other then that every other symptom developed quite recently and is improved by having enough ejaculations until I am basically "empty." and tension free.

Oh and I forgot to mention a few things:

I've also noticed edging during masturbation makes the situation/symptoms tens times worse. (I haven't edged in years because of that)

Another symptom I have is burning sensation during urination. This symptom like the rest is also improved by having multiple ejaculations.

I've used 5-htp for years to help with anxiety and sleep (completely unrelated to any POIS issues)

"reverse" POIS
« Reply #4 on: May 28, 2021, 03:09:38 PM »
Strange ... tonight i was feeling really down, said, anxious.  Nevertheless, i couldn't help jerking of, thinking it couldn't get worse anyway.  But then, i had this wonderful orgasm, took my usual cetirizine and ...... sadness was gone.  Orgasm got me rid of depressive feelings.  How strange is that? We're all used to the opposite.
This is the second time this happens to me.  Anyone who can relate?

Yes i also have had orgasms that improved my POIS-state....I think in general the POIS-Symptoms from my orgasms do not stack up but overwrite eachother.

I have completely opposite style POIS (mainly mental symptoms, severe PE), but about a year ago though in a bout of severe chronic insomnia which I'm still dealing with and which as you know doesn't lead well to continence, I jacked off four times in a period of three days from the exasperation (to softish pornography which is always the death of me).  Because of how severe my POIS is I thought that I would die, it actually healed the POIS from the days before, but the anhedonia was pronounced, it didn't help my sleep and my PE wasn't ameliorated...
