Dear Dra. Holmes:
I’m writing to ask you about POIS (post orgasmic illness syndrome). I think my boyfriend has this. Every time we make love, he immediately feels flu like symptoms such as fever, muscle pains that last for a week. It’s debilitating on his part as because he’s feeling really ill, he can’t go to work anymore and it caused him his job. Sometimes he’s begging off if we can abstain from sex for a while because he hates the feeling of getting sick after we make love. I thought I may have been the problem, if he’s allergic to my fluids, but we tried one time to just make out, and he ejaculated by himself, only to have the same outcome. We conclude that every time he jacks off whether thru sex or just masturbation, he gets sick. I love him so much and I want to help him get thru this. Can you give us an advice? Have you encountered such case?
Please keep me anonymous and just call me “His Loving Girlfriend”
Maraming Salamat po and God bless!
Maraming salamat sa iyong sulat. Wala pa akong kliyente na may mga ipinakitang ganyang simtomas na pareho sa iyong sinasabi, pero marami na akong nabasa patungkol rito (POIS) sa mga medical journal at narinig ko na rin ito sa mga international convention.
Sa Pilipinas, ang iyong boyfriend lang ang alam kong maaaring may POIS. Sinabi kong maaaring mayroon at hindi mayroon dahil una, hindi sapat mag-diagnose sa isang taong hindi mo pa nakikita. Ikalawa, wala akong sapat na edukasyon o karanasan na mag-diagnose ng POIS. Pero marami-rami naman ang aking alam, ito ang isa sa ating paguusapan sa Miyerkoles, okay? Ingat — MG Holmes
