Best wishes, drop247!
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

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:




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.

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.
