Some men are cursed with a rare condition that can completely diminish their s*x life. If you find that your partner is getting sick after you have a little fun in the bedroom, he may have what is known as [email protected] illness syndrome (POIS). It is a very very rare disease but one that is a mystery to doctors. After realizing that having an [email protected] is the reason for their sickness many men decrease the amount of s*x that they have or stop all together. This can end a relationship as their partner may feel that the lack of intimacy is something else.
When a man has POIS he can suffer severe flu-like symptoms. They can take effect anywhere from a few hours to a few days after an [email protected] He could experience nausea, chills, sweats, fever, stomach pains, and may even be too sick to get out of bed for days. Once it has run it’s course the man will be back to normal until he is intimate again. Then the symptoms will start all over.
One of the first known cases in China was recently publish in the Journal of S*xual Medicine. The man was 61 years old and after experiencing these symptoms for 40 years he finally decided to go to an allergy specialist to try and figure out what was going on. He stated that he had lower limb stiffness, cognitive issues such as a fogginess in his head, dizziness, and memory loss. He finally became afraid of the symptoms and decided to stop all intimacy with his wife.
After numerous case studies there have been only 50 cases in the world that have been published. On the internet forums that talk about this problem have far more possible cases, some are even women. It is still a mystery disease. Doctors and researchers are not sure what the cause of this disease is and since it is so wildly undocumented and the symptoms are so similar to a flu or cold there is very little known about it. Some researchers theorize that it is an autoimmune disorder that is triggered by the s*men leaving the body. Unfortunately there are no known treatments for this disease at this point other than abstinence. If you notice your partner going through this or if you yourself are going through it, be open with your partner and communicate with them so that the lack of intimacy is not taken the wrong way.
