POIS - Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome.
Yes, there is such a thing as POIS (Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome). If you suffer with fatigue, irritability, flu like symptoms, depression, myalgia, pain in knees, memory loss, disorientation, diarrhoea, headaches,sore throat, sweating,eye irritation, back pain, immediately after an orgasm (or; some or combination of above); lasting few days to even as long as a month; you have most likely post orgasmic illness syndrome.
Person suffering with the above condition avoids sex as much as humanly possible. It ruins many relationships because there is very little understanding about the condition, what causes it and how to treat it.
And it is not easy keeping avoiding sex at all times once you have a girlfriend. No matter how much she is understanding.
The situation is elevated by very little knowledge about this conditions by doctors. Many have no idea it even exists.
Imagine a person suffering from this syndrome visiting a GP and asking for help.
However, there is one person studying it in depth. Marcel. D. Waldinger, MD, PhD living in Hague, Netherlands head or Neurosexology department. It is best to contact him directly. That is sometimes not possible or practical.
His latest theory is that the persons' immune system is allergic to its own semen. They inject individual with his own (diluted) semen to check for an allergic reaction. At the same time it servers as a way to help immune system to recognize it and eliminate POIS if possible.
Though it is most likely to be present in males aged between 40 to 50 years old, it is not a rule. It can occur at much younger age.
