A consecutive group of 45 males reported with complaints of Sensation of a flu-like state, Extreme fatigue or exhaustion, Weakness of musculature, Some experienced feverishness or perspiration and mood swings and disturbances /or irritability, Memory difficulties, concentration problems, Incoherent speech, Congestion of nose or watery nose, Itching eyes.

Consequently, it was argued that this is an illness, a new cluster of symptoms clearly needed a name. Medical and mental health professionals called it Post Orgasmic Illness syndrome in short POIS is an invalidating most probably auto-immune disease leading to much distress in males.

This occurred whether men ejaculated during intercourse, masturbation, wet dreams or spontaneously at night. The illness started with flu-like symptoms such as feeling feverish, a foggy head and/or painful heavy muscles of arms and legs followed by concentration and attention difficulties and irritation, constipation, acid reflex, some times pain in prostate area possibly some other unknow symptoms that have not yet came under observation. These complaints lasted for about 5 to 7 days, after which they disappeared until the next time that they have had an ejaculation.

All of this started when in 2002, Waldinger and Schweitzer published a case report of two males who had similar but remarkable complaints that sofar had not been described in medical literature. They became ill immediately after ejaculation. This occurred whether they ejaculated during intercourse, masturbation or spontaneously at night. The illness started with flu-like symptoms such as feeling feverish, a foggy head and/or painful heavy muscles of arms and legs followed by concentration and attention difficulties and irritation. These complaints lasted for about 5 to 7 days, after which they disappeared until the next time that they have had an ejaculation. After first publication of POIS, a gradually increasing number of males around the world recognized its symptoms and reported to be relieved that finally there was an official medical name and that they did no longer had to believe to suffer from a unknown psychiatric disorder or a mysterious somatic disease as it has been been described for decades by most medical specialists.

Symptoms of POIS

These men reported a rapid onset of flu-like symptoms, such as feverishness, extreme fatigue, and burning eyes after ejaculation followed by more cognitive disturbances such as concentration difficulties and particularly an irritated mood.

These symptoms disappeared after 3 to 7 days. However, all these complaints returned in the same severity after they ejaculated again. As a result, they refrained from sexual activity in order to avoid to becoming ill again. Notably, both men were otherwise physically completely healthy. As the symptoms of POIS occurred rather immediately after ejaculation Waldinger and Schweitzer postulated that POIS was caused by an immunological process, as only the immune system is capable of inducing very rapid and serious physical and mental symptoms. However, and importantly, the postulated immunological origin of their complaints gave rise to a systemic reaction of the body and not a local genital reaction. Support for an immunological cause of these flulike complaints was found in reports on cytokines inducing a flulike state . But at the time, the role of cytokines in mediating POIS was unknown.
