Interesting, Aladin!
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

"ILC2s are the only immune cells that contain androgen receptors and could be a potential therapeutic target," Cidlowski said.

"We demonstrated that DHT treatment potently suppressed the expression of the proinflammatory cytokines IL13 and Csf2 by ILC2s."

Hmmm...see the house dust mite allergy header for potential link/clues:
