Discovered my POIS a few days ago, help me !!!
« on: January 02, 2022, 02:00:06 PM »
Hello, I?m a 18 years old man who discovered his POIS a few days ago, I?m sure at 99% that I?ve POIS.

My symptoms after O are : nasty brain fog, extreme fatigue, weakness of musculature, mood disturbances and / or irritability, memory difficulties, concentration problems, incoherent speech, ?

As I discovered my POIS a few days ago, I?d like some help by people who has POIS since a long time and has some experience and solutions to this disease.
Also, I?d like to know what are the most efficient, popular and most used solutions to this.

Thanks.

Here is a chart of things that have helped members suppress their symptoms: https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2338.msg19448#msg19448

Here is the first page of the chart and the explanation of it: https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2338.msg19447#msg19447

If u have a doctor, u can share it with them.

I have had POIS for 6 years now, my method consists of eating mainly organic foods that I can tolerate and I am working with a dietician to hopefully get better results and to better understand my symptoms and to find a diet that could help manage all of my symptoms both acute and chronic.

There are many people here who have had POIS for a long time. Just wait on their responses. Let me know if u need anything!

Your welcome, if you have an addiction to porn and masturbation, or sex in general, it would be best to get that managed too, either from a sex anonymous group meeting, a therapist or other mental health professional, or have a recipient or sponsor to help you.

If you find something that suppresses your POIS symptoms, I think it would be best to still manage how many times you ejaculate. Less ejaculations would be ideal.

Always reach out if you need any help!

What is your diet?

What is your lifestyle (school/job/unemployed, physical activity, etc)?

How do you define when sexuality is "addictive"? Most people engage in sexuality when their libido grows and there is zero link between the frequency of it and POIS - healthy people naturally regain libido within hours or a day since last orgasm (POIS can prolong the regain of sexual sensitivity/libido) and many have sex or masturbate daily and never had POIS

It is addictive if you want to avoid it because it screws you over for 3-7 days but still can't manage to stay away from it. Which i would presume is not only the case for me but also for quite a few of us out there.

That's normal libido, nonPOISers do not get hurt by it and do not need to stay away from it, with time libido builds up even more so of course one is gonna gravitate more towards sexual stimulations on abstinence

It's like if someone had over-reactivity to warm water but warm water helped them to relax and get cleaner so they'd call themselves addicted when they decided to take a warm bath due to the pros while ignoring the cons and deciding to deal with them

Sorry for the lack of responses, I have been getting eye strain issues. Once I recover I will get to the questions as soon as possible!
