I'm Cured! / Re: Has anyone done pelvic floor therapy????
« Last post by fireman on January 01, 2019, 12:57:12 PM »
I have had pelvic floor therapy which consisted of learning a few muscle tension/relaxing routines for the pelvic area. also locating and releasing knots of muscle inside the anus. this was done by means of a medical quality glass gadget, which was curved and had a sphere at each end of different sizes. finding a therapist who even acknowledged the existence of the male pelvic floor was the first challenge. I eventually found one just outside Reading in uk. he was very understanding and patient, although I think a little embarrassed at having to show me how to locate any muscle knots. a couple of the exercises were difficult to master, like raising ones testicles while in a standing position without moving the stomach muscles.  I am not sure it had any beneficial effect, but I would say it would be worth a try to see if it helps you.

I'm Cured! / Has anyone done pelvic floor therapy????
« Last post by MrHypochondriac on December 20, 2018, 10:16:47 AM »
I have read and been told a referred to try pelvic floor therapy, yet I am hesitant to do it because the process for men is very very "invasive". I am wondering if any of you guys/girls have done pelvic floor therapy and if so seen any results? Furthermore I believe that the reason I have SA is due to my hips/ my body overall being chronically tight. I have been told that my pelvic floor in specific is ridiculously tight and "stuck". Therefor at least my hope is to get back to not being extremely tight and my SA going away. Does anyone have any thoughts on this or think that that could be the reason?

Lastly, I've seen multiple post relating to a tarlov cyst, and probably like many of you have know idea if this is the cause for my SA. Is this a legitimate cause? and if so how do you know and or what are the causes for it ? Any info on anything that I have said would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

A friend of mine is a long experienced pot user. It looks like it worked out OK for you, but he says a lot of people get themselves in trouble with edibles. The problem is that the onset and clearance are both much slower, so that people can easily take too much before the effect hits them, and then it's too late, because the effect won't clear for a long time.

Yes, you're correct that you need to be more careful with edibles. The effects don't start until an hour after you eat them. So you can potentially eat way too much of a dose, then once they take effect you can't undo the effects and need to ride it out for hours. Luckily an overdose won't physically harm you so it isn't a health risk like other drugs can be.

If you live in a legal area you can get edibles with known quantities of THC in them. So start with a small dose such as 10mg. Then next time slightly increase the does until you feel like you are getting the effects that you like.

You could also smoke or vape. The sexual effects are similar, and it takes effect immediately so you can stop when you get to the level that you want to. For me I just prefer edibles, they last longer and are more powerful, plus I just don't like smoking.

General anhedonia here too, tried with no effect, more than being a little less sleepy in the afternoons, but could be realated to other healt problems happening at the same time, so maybe I'm no good reference on the subject.

I'm going to a psychiatrist tomorrow to see what they suggest about my general amotivational anhedonia. I'm suggesting modafinil.

Reading some first person anecdotes, it sounded like modafinil didn't just keep people awake, but it really motivated them. Drive and focus.

I ask you folks about that, because maybe you've tried it, and it seems from reading online that people experience a real effect during sex too.

I've had one orgasm. It wasn't just the climax that was different, but the build up. I just felt more driven and determined on the build up. Particularly the determined part.

I'd be interested in hearing whether others have noticed a difference in how driven, determined, and focused they felt on when leading up to orgasms versus anhedonic ejaculations.

And what your experience was with modafinil, if you've had it.

Pot is legal where I am too.

I'm thinking about CBD oil more than pot itself. If I remember right, it is supposed to be a 5ht1a agonist. Antidepressive, maybe pro sexual function without the THC.

A caution to people thinking about trying it.

I have been thinking about CBD oil too. But I was put off it when I read that it can lower blood pressure, and as I am already on meds which as a side effect reduce blood pressure I am apprehensive. I don't like messing with stuff after I had a bad heart attack 12 years ago. I would be interested to hear from anyone who has used CBD oil and the results they experienced. a local supplier here in uk is quite happy to supply it - with a responsibility waiver naturally - although they admit they have never heard of it being used for our condition

It's one thing to not have any pleasure when ejaculating, but it's a lot worst when, in addition, that makes you totally ill for a few days.

Wow that sucks. Sorry to hear it.

apart from when I tried to remove it from my penis and got a hefty shock through my hand.

When I was playing around with mine, I got zapped on the hand a few times too. I was probably trying to adjust position while it was on.

Manual adjustment seems like a no no for a TENS unit. The intensity you feel is so dependent on where you place it. The directions say to place it, start from the lowest settings, then ramp up to effect desired.
