Re: sexual arousal after PT, the same day?

Live life to it fullest. If that means getting a little love and having a good relationship with someone, I say, go for it, even if it costs you some pain. Clearly you decided it was worth it. I probably would have too. Good relationships in our lives seem to help manage the pain a lot in the long r...

Re: Erection leads to flare-up

Agreed on the post erection flare. Often its even worse for me if I have a long time erection that doesnt end in sex and ejaculation. After a certain point I will have a bad flare, but its slightly less if I actually finish. If its just a short time erection, then its less painful then after ejacula...

Re: Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and CPPS in China

Here is another acupuncture study. Not quite as clear cut as the previous one, and with a smaller group, but more of a control. (Here, also the protocols were different than the previous study. One cannot say whether acupuncture "works" or "doesnt work". It depends on the points, how often is treatm...

Re: My story

Catastrophic thinking. This is a big one for us. I don't feel it's the cause, but it definitely makes our conditional a heck of a lot worse!! Took me a really long time to accept that this was part of my life and who I am. Its easy to be in denial about that one. ; )

If you are not a TCM doctor, its of limited value to you directly, however if you are seeing a TCM doctor who speaks Chinese. Please print it off and bring it with you...

Re: Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and CPPS in China

From the Journal of Chinese Medicine This is the largest english language TCM journal around. It published a two part piece for TCM docs on treating CPPS. If you are getting acupuncture for your CPPS. Send this to your acupuncturist and have them read it. Ask them to buy the articles and make a smal...

Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and CPPS in China

CPPS in China is becoming more well known. I was quite surprised as I went through the published research and words for CPPS. All of the papers I read (in Chinese) were along the lines of the same current ones being looked at in the US. Luckily they are also doing away with the ideas that CPPS is a ...

Re: ejaculation blues

Remember to take it one moment at a time. And deal with it as it comes. I know its easy to say this, and more hard to do, but its true. Sure, prepare before hand. I always do. I also use a hot bath. Let the gf know its nothing personal (I am leaving bed ASAP). I like some lunge type stretches. I put...

Re: Erection leads to flare-up

Yes, I have the same problem. Extended erection or sometimes even short term can increase pain or set off a flare. And after a few days of it, (off and on), I will need to ejaculate. Ie, there are only so many days I can let go by without ejaculating before the erection pains get worse. Better to bi...

Re: Taekwondo exercise

Hard to say, because everyone is so different. In my case thats a big yes. But you will need to see for yourself. Take it slow at first. Good luck and let us know how it works out. I have continued to do other martial arts with mixed success. Mostly those without big cardio/ regimented exercise prog...

Re: Dating new people

Why tell them so soon? Because in my case it becomes very obvious post sex. I get a lot of pain, and usually need to soak in some hot water for about 20 minutes right right after I finish. Even after that I tend to have a few hours of flare where walking around and doing things is next to impossible...

I'm posting because I am at this point again in my life. Last relationship ended and hopefully new ones starting. I am have my first date coming up this week and I am a bit nervous. I've had a bunch of gfs in the past, and telling them each time was embarrassing, but every single one of them handled...
