Brain fog can be a lack of oxygen in the brain, according to me. Since we have troubles to take breath, it might be that.
The symptoms are : lack of Vitamine D, exhaustion, white face, troubles to focus, hard to have a physical activity, fast heartbeating, brain disorder...

It would be great we try with an appliance to get oxygen during the orgasm + brain fog time to check!
Brain fog 90%  + tired all the time ,sport intolerance, fast heartbeat, colon inflammation

Before discovering this page i used deep breathing as a method to "clear" brain fog. Of course it didnĀ“t last so much time, but i noticed an slightly improvement of my symptoms for a little time. Today fenugreek, garlic or spinachs plus not sweet foods are working very well against brain fog as i have stated in other posts.

People who had vasectomy had reported having symptoms similar to POIS, Also people who had put sperm into their bloodstream. When sperm enters into bloodstream body treats it like a foreign material and body's immune system fights to kill it. If a person who has POIS has somehow a open duct to blood (possible in the vas deferens ) so whenever a person gets an O, sperm get into blood. Howsoever small quantity. Sperm in the CNS are attacked by antibodies which also kills (or damage ) receptors. If so happens FOGGY BRAIN,cognitive impairment , memory , flue like symptoms, gets on.

If sperm gets into blood it can also cause neurodegenerative disorders in later life, like Multiple sclerosis. Above theory exactly fits POIS symptoms and those caused by sperm in blood.

I am planning for getting blood checkup. I'll get the updates on.

Brain fog is the most annoying symptom I have for POIS, but I haven't found anything that can cut it down apart from preventing outset of POIS by way of abstinence.
It started ever since my first orgasm. It lasts exactly for 7 days. Symptoms mainly in the brain: extreme mental  fatigue, difficulty concentrating, inability to comprehend/retain what is read,shortened attention span, loss of speech fluency, cloudy mindedness, mild headache, and anxiousness

The only thing I've found to completely eliminate brain fog is DHEA.  I don't like taking it, though, because it's an exogenous hormone, and one that I am not even deficient of.  I don't know what it works, only that it does.

Hi Advileater,
Can you explain how you take the DHEA and have you have any adverse side effects?

What works for me is 50mg when experiencing brain fog.  Takes about 30min to work.  As far a sides, I've experienced some increased sadness with a 25mg dose; not sure why, but it may have something to do with DHEA being easily converted into estrogen.  Do your own research if you're thinking about trying it.  It's an actual hormone so be cautious.

Also, today I found out ginkgo helps with my fogginess.  One of the better supplements I've tried.

I find that exhaustion/sleepiness, lack of motivation, and anxiety tend to be more problematic than brain fog lately.

Anyway three stimulants I use:

Caffeine pills 200 or 300mg - for concentration, motivation.
Nicorette gum - helps with the fog sometimes, sometimes it backfires because if I get too much it makes me dizzy. Mostly I use it in the morning to get out of bed, fight sleep inertia -it's very good for this.
Peppermint oil drops - put a little in a cup or a plastic bag an breath in deep. The smell is very strong and shocks you awake for a while. It's kind of like dunking your head in cold water.
Regular gum - chewing gum is known to help concentration, I find the mintier the better.

I have a doctor that seems willing to experiment a little and I want to ask her about a long acting stimulant (ADD drugs) sometime soon.

-Whatever stimulants you try, just be careful.-
I have both physical and psychological symptoms for about 6 days. Muscle soreness, pain in the prostate and warmth in the pelvic area, fatigue, lack of motivation, irritability, confusion, inability to focus, forgetting obligations, difficulty communicating, difficulty interacting with others.

NADH is good for exhausting and that stuff, I?ve been using it for a year now with much success. I used to be constantly tired, to the point that I always wanted to sleep and this has helped. NADH is also very healthy for you as it is the worlds most powerful antioxidant.

Hi Lycopoulos,
Could you please share how you take NADH? I heard that someone had a very bad experience taking this so I think it's one to handle with caution.

Hello advileater
Does DHEA completely eliminate brain fog so that you can study?
How long will a single dose of DHEA act and how often should we take it?
Please help

It works for me, but I have chosen not to take it unless I feel it is absolutely necessary, and even then, I only take it one time.  DHEA is a HORMONE.  Do extensive research on the possible side effects before you go putting exogenous hormones in your body.  I can't tell you how often to take it.  I'm not a doctor and there's no guarantee that it will even have an effect on your symptoms.

I've found something else that helps my brain fog.  It's a nootropic made by AOR called Ortho Mind.  Reduced my fog by 90-100% and greatly improved cognition.  Not sure why it took me so long to try nootropics.  They are designed to improve cognition.

I'm beginning to think that I and many more people with these symptoms are not dealing with a semen allergy, and that the problem is not ejaculation.  I think the problem is orgasm.  I think the symptoms are mostly occurring from an imbalance in neurotransmitters stemming from the gigantic dopamine release that happens at the point of orgasm.  Almost all of the symptoms that I've been experiencing coincide with those who are experiencing low dopamine levels.  My research continues...

Take care and good luck.

AdvilEater,

My experience is contrary to yours. I can have sex achieve  orgasm without ejaculation and experience no POIS symptoms at all.

This is used for brain fog:

Quote
Plasmalogens are critical for human health and have established roles in neuronal development, the immune response and as endogenous antioxidants. Plasmalogen was decreased significantly in human brain with AD, in which ethanolamine plasmalogen was the main component. The ethanolamine plasmalogen has good antioxidant activity owing to its vinyl ether double bond and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.

High-dose Plasmalogen supplements:

Plasmalogen level peak around age 40 - 60 years.

Some treatments for brain fog emerge from the experience with long COVID, like this one:  https://medicine.yale.edu/news-article/potential-new-treatment-for-brain-fog-in-long-covid-patients/   (guanfacine and NAC)
I never had brain fog as a symptom, so not for me to tell if it can help or not in POIS.

I have brain fog - and ME/CFS type symptoms plus POIS (everything worsens). I find NAC somewhat helpful (small amount). Adding guanfacine made things worse - more fatigue, didn't help tachycardia, etc.
