I bought one but never got around to trying it.

Didn't expect it to bring orgasms, more just to train the muscles in the area.

I'm interested in hearing how you got it to work for you.

Ok so far this thread has 140 views and I know at least one or two of you have resorted to the tens unit...please register, log in, and post your experience
Continuing to go down the rabbit hole...

If you remember my early posts I spoke about how I experienced changes in my libido/arousal/orgasm over time and at one time it was extremely HIGH.  I also noticed strange effects from cold medicines, possibly ones that contained an ingredient called phenylpropanalomine (PPA) which was subsequently banned in the USA and some other countries for stroke risk.

I was doing some other research and started reading about melanocortin or melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH).  There is a company, Palatin that is working on approval for a drug that can treat EA in men and women.  One strange thing about all of this is this melanin stuff has to do with tanning etc, and I have periods where I suddenly become "tan" overnight and then it goes away, so clearly I have something going on with my melanin system etc.

It would appear that 23andme tests for a MC3R SNP

This website has phenylpropanalomine as the TOP GENE SUBSTANCE interaction with the MC3R gene:

This Palatin company also evidently works on a related compound for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which I also have had in the past.

It seems there are tests for MSH:

Again, I need some help working this out from those with science/medical backgrounds or psychonauts out there, check out this guy's video:

to reply to my own post,

I never really enjoyed biology or anatomy class, but I do recall that nerves release substances, right, like serotonin and dopamine?  I mean this is the thing about neurons and axons and SSRIs and receptor sites, agonists/antagonists

So I feel a sense of wondering if something is "blocking" the nerves or "stealing" the substances the nerves release....I even sometimes wonder if the germs in my infections are sitting there getting off on my neurotransmitters...sounds bizzarre but refer to my post on how I was able to get orgasmic pleasure via a tens unit but later suffering a lyme/coinfection head pressure herx as a result.

Let's get some dialogue going

Just checking back in-

I know most of us "EA'ers" are dealing with this long term and may go months/years without logging in.  But I do know for a fact that I am not the only EA'er desperate enough for the release of sexual tension (normal biological function) to experiment with electrostim, e.g. using a TENS unit for an uninTENded purpose.

So, please for the sake of the collective, log in and sound off.

I pledge to return to the thread to further discuss this because it may reveal some physiological neurological answers to the EA/orgasm issue that may be actionable or may allow sufferers to have some sexual orgasmic sensation and may also shed light on a cause, at least for some of us.

Yes, definitely try first, go with a smaller dosage.
Yes, fresh royal jelly is super expensive, because it's natural and it
can't be produced in mass I guess.
Here the upside though, I found that if you keep it frozen in the fridge,
it will last for months, unlike what they say that it has to be consumed in 30 days.
Perhaps the 30 days is for other purposes, because for resurrecting libido, it works
way longer than that, if kept frozen in the fridge. At least for me.
As of late, there hasn't been a single time that I've used fresh royal jelly in the proper
way and didn't get aroused a few hours after that.

Another tip, testosterone peaks in the morning when we wake up, so libido is also best
as soon as we wake up. At times i take fresh royal jelly at night, and the next day
I'm super horny in the morning.
These days I'm even able to orgasm without seeing porn, just thinking about and having
fantasies with people I find hot, Lol.

how much should I buy just to test it out? Seems pricey, Do I have to go with the 4oz or can I go smaller if I want to test it.
General Discussion / TENS unit / electrostim

I haven't posted here in a couple of years, just posted a few new discoveries elsewhere on the board,

but one thing I have been waiting to mention is that i am able to achieve orgasm via a TENS unit although it seems to cause a flair up in my lyme and coinfection symtpoms and so is generally not good for me.

Of course, there are reasonable concerns about any of you trying this so you are on your own as far as research and not dying or suffering some other horrible outcome.  But I was just wondering if anyone else had resorted to this and what the outcome was (and why has this never been mentioned on this forum in any meaningful way?).  And if it works what does this say about the anatomy of the EA?

None of our members in countries where cold medicine may legally contain phenylpropanalomine have tried it?  Just be aware of the stroke risk which is evidently why it was banned in the US.  But curious to see if anyone in a country where it is legal finds it effects their EA

Well, I'm back and about 2 years into treatment for the infections.  I mainly have gone the natural route for treatment.  The treatment itself hasn't really had any impact on my EA.  However, I recently tried an herbal medicine houttunyia that I think was clearing out bartonella or something and I had a severe reaction and couldn't hardly sleep for months.  I ended up having psychiatric symptoms as well so it got really severe, but the strange thing is I did have an episode of a random mid day erection with arousal and was able to experience pleasure with intercourse that night.  I ended up having to stop that herb due to the severity of the reaction but I ended up on some psych meds for a week or two.  One was abilify.  It ended up making me absolutely unbearably physically restless to the point of puttting me in harms way but strangely it made me constantly horny and I did have pleasurable orgasms, albeit with premature ejaculation each time.  I am trying to figure out what is going on with me, the answer seems so near but yet so far.  Notably I also discovered that I was able to experience pleasurable orgasm via tens unit but it also flares up my infection symptoms, including head pressure.  So I can't quite tell if my problem is involving nerves and/or my brain, I mean it's obviously both since my infections are long standing and neurological, but why would the tens unit allow me pleasure but then give me a herx reaction and head pressure.

I'm hoping one of our members is a neurologist or a genius and can troubleshoot this.  I bet for most of us infections or parasite is behind the EA based on my experience.  So I'm off the herbal treatment for my infection and off the abilify and am back to being anhedonic...

The truth is out there
