Over the last few weeks I have been reading online and trying to better understand some of the symptoms of Candida and where in the body it can populate.
A year ago I was diagnosed with a mild form of Prostatitis which was not a medicine treatment case which i found out, it was due to a mild Candida infection in the prostate area. This was an uncomfortable place to get Candida, but as soon as I worked out the pattern I realized it was Candida. I adjusted my diet, ate many anti candida foods and within a few weeks my Prostatitis issue was gone. During that time it was amazing to see doctors again who had no real clue on how to treat or diagnose this. Allergy prostatitis was a last option if nothing else comes up..
So after learning about this and curing myself, I remembered some of the bizarre symptoms Candida can caused me when in the Prostate area. The main one being an aching sore feeling that came and went..
About Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome
Okay so to my correlation between Candida and Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome. First off, this illness is a condition which effects the prostate area of the body and seems to create a negative immune response after having sex. It can last up to to 2 to 3 days all the way up to a week where the individual feels like they are in a dreamlike state, feel tired, lethargic, exhausted, hot and cold and in extreme cases shortness of breath and anxiety. As a general opinion many subjects feel these symptoms worse the second day after orgasm and then there body goes into recovery mode. In a way it is a little like an allergic reaction to sex.
Could Candida Be The Issue?
This condition had me thinking on my issues I had with my prostatitis that had doctors scratching there heads and me working out it was a bizarre return of Candida. During that time sex or intercourse was one of those things that was a lot harder on the body. Why is that you may ask..? Because there is a mild yeast infection in that area causing inflammation due to Candida.
When looking at the symptoms and reactions POIS victims have I must say they correlate almost exactly to Candida in the Prostate area almost exactly. Interestingly this is not something a doctor can detect as the prostate is an area which can hide problems until they are out of hand.. I learnt this the hard way by listening to prostate specialists of many types scratch there head and say “I don’t know why you are getting discomfort..?”. Okay so that was helpful after paying for there help but still that is one of the elements of Candida that sufferers have to deal with. Lucky for me I know how to get on top of it with in a few weeks with a few modifications in diet and remedies..
What to Do?
If you suffer from this Illness referred to as POIS ( Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome ) I recommend following a strict Candida Diet plan such as the one here on my site. It can’t hurt and then we can get to the bottom of this if Candida is the culprit. The major foods to cut out are sugar, yeast, cocoa, potato family, dairy and eat more fresh vegetables, low sugar fruits.
In conclusion to Is POIS a form of Candida? It seems to correlate very well to the orgasm causing a irritation of the Candida infection thus causing a few days of horrible Candida dreamlike state. I think it is very likely.
