Beer contains a moderate level of betaine. It might be worth checking the discussions on beets (high betaine), eggs (high choline which is a precursor to betaine) and related (I see a few on choline, etc) to see if there are commonalities.

Alcohol is a CNS depressant, if you suffer of depression triggered by POIS I don't think alcohol is a good idea.

For me, sometimes alcohol improves the POIS symptoms. It seems to work (sometimes). Not always, just sometimes.

Alcohol decreases my POIS symptoms both temporarily and long term. Temporarily it decreases physical pains and anxiety. It helps me long term by improving blood circulation and aiding digestion.  It also improves my cognition and memory the next day in a way that feels similar to the way increasing acetylcholine via huperzine affects me.

1-3 beers is what I usually stick to in one day. I suspect wine is the most healthy form of alcohol, but it's too expensive for me and I prefer the taste of beer.
Taking ginger tea, no wheat, fenugreek+green tea/garlic, saw palmetto, niacin, boswellia, huperzine, B complex and nutmeg. See my treatment summary post for more info: http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=81.msg3513#msg3513

Some studies show that ethanol inhibits the release of oxytocin:

Could it be that oxytocin (or lack of it) has a strong link to our POIS symptoms?

hurray, I posted this a while back, you might have seen more at the nakedscientists.com POIS forum.


...Orgasm culminates in a release of oxytocin (the 'cuddle hormone'). In Europe, they even sell a nasal spray with oxytocin.

But it can be a dangerous drug to take.

We had a lot of discussion @ TNS/POIS about oxytocin (possible POIS treatment?). You can copy and paste this in your Google search box and a number of oxytocin discussions will come up:

Hi Demo, good to see you :)

Yes, you are correct, oxytocin itself should never be used outside a hospital. Oxytocin as used in medicine is useless for POIS anyway because it doesn't cross the blood-brain barrier. We spent a while discussing oxytocin on the Naked Scientists thread, there are some excellent posts on there.

I find it a curious coincidence that 2 of the main things that affect my POIS symptoms (alcohol and fenugreek) both have a strong link to oxytocin (the kind we make ourselves inside the hypothalamus). Is it a false lead, or could there be something to it?

hurray, great to see you...many years forum-ing together! :)

Like you, I think there’s something to it. That’s why I posted the Naked Science forum link above: check out these old oxytocin/POIS posts.

Perhaps one of our more scientific-minded Members at POISCenter here can chime in? :)

Gentlemen (or lady visitors): any new thoughts about oxytocin and POIS?

Cross linking some things:

2. Alcohol: I occasionally drink alcohol and it removes my symptoms to 90% temporarily. Although I dont advice this for others due to the obvious other effects of alcohol

FYI, unfortunately, alcohol fix POIS for me, if I get drunk, the next day i'm 100% POIS free. Dunno why, maybe alcohol reduces brain inflammation or something like that.

But - the possibility of me getting POIS seems to be greatly reduced if I drink alcohol before O. I have no idea why this should be. Fenugreek, a few beers and some fatty/protein containing food before O is one of the most reliable ways that I have found of avoiding POIS. Stiill, I can't recommend it - drinking is just substituting one problem for another.

-Alcohol (ethanol): The only thing that has been able to prevent and fix POIS entirely. If I'm drunk, I can ejaculate as much as I want and next day, I'll have just a hangover but no POIS at all. If I'm under POIS and get drunk, next day i'll be POIS free.

Amazing experience for me today.
I drank a glass of wine just some minutes after ejaculation.
Wow, amazing. It at least triples the effects of alcohol. During 5 minutes I need to stay seated with strong brain fog and "cutted legs" feeling.

First time I did this. I usually drink very few alcohol.
A clear proof of up and down levels of neurotransmitters after ejaculation for me.

It could be the histamine. Wine is loaded with it.

That's a strong clue.
But what would you describe the experience? It made it worst or better?
