Return of The O and other mysteries
« on: December 13, 2016, 08:33:55 AM »
My orgasm and libido have been back for a while. To mind blowing levels of pleasure. Last time I felt like this was when I was 18, I can orgasm multiple times in a day. And the craziest thing is, I have no idea why they went, or how they've come back. I'm still at step 1 from the start of the journey. Unaware of the causes of my fluctuating desires.

But I will note the changes in my lifestyle since they have returned.

Here are the changes in my life in 2016:

1. Started going gym and lifting weights.
2. Increased my protein intake.
3. Included more animal products and fats in my diet.
4. Took meditation/spirituality more seriously.
5. Had a serious look at my attitudes towards sex.
6. Eating much more fresh fruit and vegetables.
7. Started vaping CBD.
8. Occasionally began drinking energy drinks with a plethora of b vitamins.
9. Decreased my body fat percentage and gained lean muscle mass.
10. Took up more sports than usual.
11. Started talking to more girls and being open.
12. Tackled my anxieties.
13. Used self affirmations to rid of self doubt.
14. Much more social than before, and keeping in touch with more friends (Don't underestimate this).
15. Stopped obsessing over medical conditions (something this forum does especially well).
16. Masturbating more regularly, and actually taking my time.

There's probably other stuff I can't recall, but I will include it as I remember. Hope this helps others. Increases hope. Perhaps the greatest healer of this condition, is time. During my greatest low, I had thought I would remain as I was for the rest of my life, but this is not the case anymore. You need the conviction that this is a passing state of being. Hang in there. I know not being able  to orgasm feels like life is dead, like you can't breathe, but I know everyone can figure out the cause of their symptoms. With an open mind, and patience, healing is possible.

So great to hear man congrats!!!!
I've noticed an increase in my pleasure and overall "glow" period after ejaculating

I attribute it to having an awesome relaxing vacation where I crossed off some bucket list items.  Been really relaxing over this whole issue and not letting it consume me anymore.

I'm not back to my drool inducing orgasims but it is def improving!  I even find now that I get many muscle convulsions after I wjaculate like I used too.  Involuntary full body spasms

...

7. Started vaping CBD.

How are you taking CBD? What dosage, dosage scheduling, etc.?

I've been thinking about taking it after seeing it is a 5ht1a partial agonist. Seems to have a lot of good properties.

You did a whole ton of things that were good for you. When you first got your orgasms back, was there anything in particular that was new?

Did you do any blood testing to see how all these changes affected your hormone levels?

I just noticed you saying:

You made all those changes *after* your orgasms returned?

Congratulations.

Can I ask how your Lyme disease theory and subsequent treatment fits into this?

I don't know the exact dosage, I just bought a bottle of vape liquid from amazon with a high concentration of cbd for £40 and vape it when i'm relaxing every now and again. I've also been drinking tons of coconut water, don't know if that has anything to do with it. I've just tried tons of stuff. And I'm still in the process of figuring out why I improved.

No my orgasm returned after I changed my lifestyle, not before.


Congratulations.

Yes, that theory was wrong. My anhedonia had nothing to do with lyme disease. As you can see, it is still a mystery, an unsolved one. Though my anhedonia has gone, I have tried to stick around on this forum and offer my input.

So far the biggest factors that I assume have the greatest input on ahnedonia are: Attitudes towards sex. Nutrition. And whether you are depressed.

I'm just throwing all of these factors out there, in hopes that others can figure it out. But I have reduced the factors of my condition to these 3. As much as people on this forum would hate to admit it, psychological factors might be the biggest determinant on the condition, and yet the least active part of the forum is the one about psychological factors. I understand the desire to want to take a "get well" pill, but the versatile nature of anhedonia, and how random it can be at times, suggests a psychosomatic cause.

promethean....you vape CBD? sorry if I'm being ignorant....but what is CBD? does it have similar properties to cannabis? I tried some a few years ago with mixed results to say the least. a psychotic episode was enough to put me off

CBD is extracted from cannabis. But it is non psychoactive, and can be used for therapeutic purposes.

THC in cannabis is what causes psychotic episodes, the most CBD on it's own will do is make you feel slightly more relaxed.

Quick Update:

It has been a long time since posting on this forum. I have gone through many phases of extreme orgasmic pleasures. and times of diminished or no pleasure. So far my findings conclude that this is multifaceted. There is an element of psychology involved in this, this much is true. And meditation helped me greatly in that regard. Also meeting the right girl who can really get you hot and bothered. However this is not normal for the average male. The male shouldn't need sex to be available for him to be horny. Him being horny is what drives his search for a partner.

But the more I experiement, and the more success I have. The more I have come to realize the importance of diet. When my libido disappeared, I had gone low fat vegan, and the timing with which my libido disappeared was staggering. Recently I have been eating raw eggs, raw milk, Cheese with vitamin k2, and plenty of meats free range.

My understanding is this: The body uses cholesterol to form sex hormones, in fact, it is the prime ingredient for sex hormones. Fats from good sources of meat, also help in that regard. They also help in the absorption of many nutrients that are fat soluble, and need fat as a cofactor. I won't really get into it here. I realised these things after having eaten chicken/beef liver during a visit to my parents. These things helped, cos I woke up the next day with a steel of a boner that just wouldn't go down. I've always included fish, and ate meat very rarely. Tried to be very plant based. But I have been eating fat, and going for a keto diet now. And I must say, I feel much better. Eating so many saturated fats maybe the key, or some other factor or nutrient that I am not aware of. I must point out, that changes in libido are not immediate. Any change made should be given a few weeks to assess it's effectiveness. This includes new relationships and exploring repressed fantasies.

In any case, didn't wanna leave you bros in the dark. Peace Out.

Well I still have lyme, bartonella, and several coinfections causing my anhedonia. There can be multiple answers- infection alters hormones and nutrition.

My best guess is the liver and cbd impacted your mao-a / serotonin system.

I havent tried eating liver yet but its one of the only things ive read that can increase monoamine oxidase which degrades the serotonin.

If you took a 23andme test, i wonder if youd have the mao-a mutation like i do. i have high serotonin all the time due to the mutation.  Edit: i see nofun says cbd is an hta agonist so that mskes my serotonin theory more complex.

Try to see if liver and cbd sessions coincide. I just got some cbd oil so i can try it also.

I really know its not psychological for me, i have neurolyme and neurobart causing my nervous system and neurotransmitters to be out of whack

P.s. i used to have pgad persistent genital arousal for years before the ea came, so something was inflaming my penile nerves causing sexual arousal for years and then the lights went out.

Def infection+neurotransmitter for me see my post on my abilify and houttunyia reaction

I will try the cbd and liver though, thx for posting

I should also add that masturbating while high on weed leads to pure orgasmic bliss for me. I mean being high alone, finding the exact right dose to ride it out. And just exploring your sexuality, and your own mind. Perhaps the CBD in weed really does help... I don't know. These days I'm eating like a body builder, i'm trying to gain muscle mass and decrease body fat. So I've been very low carb.

In the past three months I have also cut out all supplements. Including ketokonazole that I was using for dandruff and scalp redness. Drugs like ketokonazole, are DHT agonists. They really mess with your hormones. I know it's only shampoo, but perhaps even the small amount that passes through the skin can affect sex drive.

In any case my sex drive has been back for a while. It wanes at times, but does come back soon. Orgasms range between a 7 and a 10/10 mind blowing psychedelic type experience.

I still haven't made progress as to how or why this has happened. There are far too many variables and life style factors. It could be psychological, spiritual. physical. medical. It could be anything. I've tried so many things and changed so many different lifestyle factors. I was hoping to have an answer to this, in hopes that I can help the rest of you guys out. I know how tough and lonely it can be, so I feel you. I understand your struggle. You aren't alone.

No problem bro. Hopefully we can figure out this puzzle one day. Seems like the medical industry doesn't care about this issue in men.

I'll just throw out ideas as to what I've changed, and hopefully if people experiement, it might work for some too. Don't get me wrong, I have times where it wanes, but I feel like I am def onto something.

I should note that one of the things I had also started doing, is using magnesium oil to rub on my skin, and also using iodine on my skin too. This was also around the time I was doing the wim hoff breathing method.

As you can see I took the fading of my libido very seriously. And have tried to tackle it from every angle possible. Whether psychological or physical. The issue is, I have no magic pill so to speak. But maybe my journey can shed light on this enigma.

I would like to add my thanks for your continued contributions to the forum. There are many of us with this awful curse and I think most just accept it in the end and give up. im too stubborn to give up hope but I just don't know what to try next
