Just for clarification: Is this [your set of cognitive POIS symptoms] with or without your TRT usage? :-)


Both. With TRT/daytime sleep aids,  symptoms are drastically reduced. From suffering POIS agony for 4 days pre-TRT, to as little as hours today.

Pre-TRT, POIS symptom intensity was also far greater.

berlin1984, thanks, great question.

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.

Demo did you also have great success with TRT without the antihistamine sleep aids?

I’ve been on TRT for 11 years now. It’s always been my primary treatment method. Early years without Benadryl or Tylenol worked well. “Great”? Maybe more so in the beginning years. I’m looking forward to 100% cure. Not sure I’ll find it in my lifetime (I’m in my senior years).

Thanks I trialed hCG monotherapy but failed due to high estradiol side effects like anxiety. I'm going to see about Testosterone therapy next and perhaps low dose hCG to maintain fertility once I have the Test dosage dialed in with estradiol under control. The energy I experienced at the beginning of the hCG therapy before estrogen got out of control was exciting.

My physical POIS symptoms are easier to describe than my cognitive POIS symptoms.

My physical symptoms: extreme exhaustion, dry fingertips

My cognitive symptoms:
the first day is usually the worst. My creative juices dry up. Nothing is exciting. I’m depressed, but in a way that’s difficult to describe. My emotions are flat. My decent sense of humor and my memory, concentration and my ability to smile, to appreciate beauty go right out the window. And the surreal symptom that’s most difficult to describe:

This is NOT my endorsement or recommendation for anyone else with POIS to try TRT! A good POIS treatment is between you and a trusted doctor. My preferred treatment can be unacceptably risky for many POISers.
