I'm Cured! / Re: Been cured 6 months. Here's how I did it.

Tks for staying with us. Maybe you saved me, I stopped using Cipro after your warning.
Still not tried Augmentin, it's difficult to find a doctor that agrees to this things.

I'm Cured! / Re: Been cured 6 months. Here's how I did it.

I am still 100% cured, years later. The pleasure of my orgasms average between a 7 and 10 every time. I haven't needed to take a course of Augmentin in over a year. It would appear the cure is permanent, but if symptoms ever emerged again I wouldn't hesitate to take another course for a few weeks.

There is now evidence of two people curing themselves with antibiotics on this forum.

Augmentiin and Doxycycline are the safest antibiotics I have found.

Never take Cipro (the entire class of Fluoroquinolones are dangerous like you wouldn't believe) or Flagyl, unless you're basically on your deathbed, because the side effects of these drugs can be devastating and VERY long lasting (I'm talking years from even a few doses.)

I urge anyone suffering from this condition to try a course of Augmentin (Amoxicillin with Clavulanic Acid) for a couple weeks and see what happens. Just ask your primary care doctor and explain the situation and how someone emphatically says this cured them, or get creative in obtaining it. It's not hard.

If Augmentin doesn't work, I would trial Doxycycline. I believe Doxycycline was what a previous poster used to cure themselves when they were being treated for Lyme Disease.

I myself went on a 3 month course of Doxycycline when it was discovered I had a rare infection (Brucellosis). It is very safe, and might be effective.

You get a lot people on this forum not making progress, chasing down a lot of strange ideas, posting in the cured section even though they are NOT cured. Yet there are two people who are permanently cured without using any maintenance drug whatsoever. We both became cured using antibiotics: Augmentin for me, Doxycycline for the other guy.

Get a hold of them. Try it. This condition appears to be the result of hidden infections, at least for some of us, so treat it like an infection.

Polls and Results Discussion / Do you suffer from anxiety?

Anxiety may be associated with lack of subjective arousal and pleasure.
This poll will test the hypothesis.

Contributing Factors - Psychological / Anxiety Disorders

I think the referenced article should be required reading for us. The article is about women's sexual dysfunction, but it can probably also be generalized to men.

Women’s sexual dysfunction associated with psychiatric disorders and their treatment:

Quote
ABSTRACT:
Impairment of mental health is the most important risk factor for female sexual dysfunction. Women living with psychiatric illness, despite their frequent sexual difficulties, consider sexuality to be an important aspect of their quality of life. Antidepressant and antipsychotic medication, the neurobiology and symptoms of the illness, past trauma, difficulties in establishing relationships and stigmatization can all contribute to sexual dysfunction. Low sexual desire is strongly linked to depression. Lack of subjective arousal and pleasure are linked to trait anxiety: the sensations of physical sexual arousal may lead to fear rather than to pleasure. The most common type of sexual pain is 10 times more common in women with previous diagnoses of anxiety disorder. Clinicians often do not routinely inquire about their patients’ sexual concerns, particularly in the context of psychotic illness but careful assessment, diagnosis and explanation of their situation is necessary and in keeping with patients’ wishes. Evidence-based pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions are available but poorly researched in the context of psychotic illness.

We need a poll on the forum to capture what percentage of us have had an anxiety disorder (whether self-diagnosed or diagnosed by a health professional).
I, for one, have had at some point: social anxiety, generalized anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder.

Pelvic physical therapy also gets a mention:
Quote
Pelvic muscle physiotherapy is often helpful to lessen sexual pain both by means of addressing concomitant hypertonicity of pelvic muscles which in itself can be painful and also as a form of desensitization as physiotherapy-associated pain becomes more familiar and non-threatening. Incorporating a mindfulness approach to the physical therapy has recently been encouraged.

General Discussion / Re: Male anorgasmia treated with oxytocin

>>RESULTS: Oxytocin was effective in restoring ejaculation.

Don't have access to the full PDF but the results tells about restoring ejaculation, not only orgasm? Maybe he couldn't ejaculate at all, unlike most of the cases here.

Zero pleasure during ejaculation and buildup, many years ago I use to feel some pleasure during buildup, but now it is also gone (I am in my fifties).

That's right. masturbation or with a partner, same depressing result.

So just to clarify, you also feel zero pleasure during ejaculation and also zero pleasurable sensation during the build-up? But you did experience it in the past?

General Discussion / Male anorgasmia treated with oxytocin
« Last post by xduskyx99 on November 07, 2019, 06:17:43 AM »
This is the first case I've found of male anorgasmia being successfully treated with anything. Oxytocin is a neuropeptide hormone that plays a role in social bonding, sexual arousal and pleasure. It's released during orgasm. For a while I've suspected that this condition may be caused by an oxycotin deficiency. I also display some autistic traits, and oxycotin levels have been found to be lower in males with autism. I'm wondering if anyone has ever gotten their hands on an oxytocin nasal spray or would be willing to try it out.

So you still masturbate though and ejaculate with no sensation? For me ejaculation is zero sensation.
