Idiopathic Cystitis
« on: March 21, 2022, 09:38:51 AM »
There's this dis-ease in cats called "feline idiopathic cystitis".
Could some similar process happen to people with POIS:

My other theory is a tear somewhere in the urethra might cause sexual fluids to get into the circular system/blood and maybe that causes the immune system to overreact to them even after said tears are healed? TMI but I passed blood the first time I did the deed as I tried too hard... :'(

This information is very interesting. I read some articles on this topic and there is a lot that is similar to what we went through.
The problem is that the main goal of treatment is stress reduction, which makes treatment in humans a bit subjective.
Some medications I've seen in the articles I've read are:
Antihistamines = mast cell reduction
Prazosin = Local vasodilator
Antidepressants = decreased stress and pain sensitivity
Anxiolytics = sadative, soothing
All medications already discussed here on the forum.
My POIS only happens with masturbation. Normal sex does not generate POIS symptoms. My POIS is related to me mood and the health of my cervical spine. Dopamine/Inflammation/Body constitution (genetics) are factors that contribute to POIS.
