This thread, which original name was " This may seem like a familiar place.", in reference to the old NSF POIS forum, which was only one thread with all posts in it, and has been the only place POIS sufferers could discuss for 5 years, before thsi forum had been created, in 2011.

 Now, this thread has been renamed to "Free Flow Discussion about POIS".Since it contains years of comments and discussions about POIS, we will keep it for sure, but as you may see, this format is not very useful, when you want to find back a specific information in it - it gets buried in the many pages, and somehow, lost.

That is why we prefer you start a specific topic with its own title, on the appropriate board, so that the information will be far more easier to see and to reach for, and will readily available for newcomers as well.
To find something in this thread where all is mixed up and that has currently over 2300 replies in it, you must use the search box on the forum homepage, and use the best possible keywords to find the relevant post(s)... Yes, 2300 replies... you may now understand why we suggest you create separate topics with a specific title ;)

I wish the topic titles where specific. ;-)

What's the admin opinion on changing the post titles a bit?
Titles like "My cure!!!" don't help when scanning the forum, you guys could adjust the title to mention the supplement (or theory or whatever) used in that cure.

Another good thing would be if obvious duplicates would be merged, especially if it's a lot of small threads with only 1-2 posts.

I get your point, Berlin, that is why we encourage member to create specific, descriptive, titles.
This forum has over 9 years of existence, and nearly 30,000 posts in 2200 topics, so it is not possible to rectify and classify all that is already done ( we do change the topic title, of course, when there is a "found a cure to POIS" misleading title or similar )  However, a forum reorganization is under way ( you may have noticed some of it on the categories and boards organization and names), so that it will be easier the find the right post at the right place.  If the title is descriptive, it will be better still :)

In addition to that, there will soon be a new thread, "NEWCOMERS - START HERE !", to give basic orientations to newcomers so that they will not be lost, and will be provided with links to more important threads and messages, from the start, like "synthesis posts"

If anyone has the time and the motivation to make "synthesis posts", where are gathered information of a specific kind, you are very welcome to do so.  Example of such threads, are Muon's excellent "Paper Archive" post, a list of all POIS scientific articles, so you do not have to search all over the forum the scattered mentions of those articles ( see this thread at https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=3127.msg31515#msg31515 ).  Another example is the POIS Types Chart, where is gathered numerous methods that have brought significant relief to at least one POIS sufferer ( see https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2338.msg19448#msg19448 ), which is faster than readings through hundreds of topics to find those.   I will be more than happy of anyone comes with that kind of synthesis post.

There is also the search box on forum homepage, for a specific query, but the kind of posts mentioned above is very useful for everyone.

If I want to look for info on a particular supplement, theory, or drug, I usually do a Google search specifying all results to be on poiscenter.com like so:

site:poiscenter.com milnacipran

And if you are being thorough, it's also worth checking the old Naked Scientist Forum:

site:thenakedscientists.com silodosin

edit: I just tried the forum search, and it was quite helpful. Just make sure that you navigate to "Home" before you use it, so that it searches the whole forum.

This is a problem many people might not be aware of, and as a result, may stop making use of the search function. This navigate to home tip could be placed inside the welcome thread.

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
