    Hi,

    Long story short I was using the infamous MPB drug finasteride/ propecia for several years with no issues until recently where I had suffered a number of side effects including numbness, low semen volume, and a weak force and dullness during ejaculation. So I stopped taking it.

    However I have like many others here been progressively indulging in more extreme forms of porn to get that extra high over the years to a point where I don't get a rush by watching vanilla porn anymore.

    So from time to time I wonder if it's my desensitization to porn that did this and that it's all in my head. So my question is for those who are or were in similar shoes, did the NoFap journey help you or in some cases maybe even resolve these issues?

    Cheers

    Hello there! Another pfs sufferer here.
    I don't know if nofap alone might solve pfs but i tell you that makes me feel better.

    You're on an impressive streak. I'm glad to hear that it's adding an improvement. If you don't mind me asking what were your pfs symptoms?
    Mine is ejaculatory disorder, basically a weak and dull orgasm.

    My symptoms are countless.
    To name some, facial lipoatrophy, dry skin, cannot gain weight, freaking high anxiety, fear, poor sleep... premature ejaculation on the sexual side.
