    do background, I have been in a battle to be clean for about a year or so. I would make good progress with streaks up to a month or so then relapse. I felt so ashamed I finally came clean to my wife which was a huge turning point. That felt like all the weight of guilt was lifted off my shoulders. She was very supportive but I know it hurt her. Since then it has been 100 days and I have been PM free and we’ve had sex one time.

    I suffer from PE and for the past few years I off and on would get a painful lump in on of my testicles, the pain was not terrible just more of a discomfort. This would happen off and on sometimes with months between episodes. Well half way through this recent reboot attempt it came back, didn’t think much of it. It went away after a couple days then came back again and has been off and on continuously for about the last 50 days. So I decided to go to the urologist to get it checked out. Did an ultrasound (the lump was currently not present at the time of appointment and was feeling very little discomfort). The doctor told me it was just recurrent epipidymitis and that if it’s not too painful he’d rather not load me up on medicine which I agreed to. I then told him about my other problem of weak urine stream and sometimes leaking after urination and told him about my previous porn usage. All he told me was that those were symptoms of a 50 year old and I might have an enlarged prostate and I would just have to live with that nuisance. This perturbed me that he didn’t even inquire further to even try to help. Appoiment lasted all of five minutes with the actual doctor. So my questions to some of you successful rebooters, did you have any of these physical ailments and did a long enough reboot help in these matters? I’m really going to be discouraged if I’m going to have a leaky member for the rest of my life... any help would be wonderful!

    For other people reading this for inspiration. Since I’ve done this 100 days numerous physical changes have occurred.
    1) increase in facial/body hair growth.
    2) noticeable deeper voice when talking regularly, less voice cracking.
    3) healthier head of hair, not loosing as much as usual.
    4) overall confidence is better yet there are days where I feel horrible mentally and just want to break down. (This emotional roller coaster is brutal)
    EDIT) 5) I have also noticed clearer skin since doing this.

    I’m confident that I am on the way to recovery and I hope to rekindle the sex drive between my wife and I as it has been very poor the past couple of years. Due to many reasons including my problem but others as well. I wish anyone luck in this battle and if I can reach 100 days so can anyone! God speed gentlemen!

    Thanks for the reply keep up the good fight as will I. I still have a long way to go. I believe I’m still in a flatline due with the way I feel and how my member is behaving. Hope to see signs of life soon

    Some Fapstronauts say no PMO increases testosterone levels. I haven’t seen the correlation myself.

    Research suggests that after 21 days of hard mode testosterone levels get higher but the longer the abstinence it can have the reverse effect. What really raises testosterone? Real sex with a partner.

    Nope nope nope! Testosterone levels rise only on day 7 and remain stable throughout the rest of the cycle. :D Oh and there is no reverse effect. Testosterone levels are controlled only by hypothalamic interactions with the gonads and not any means of behavioural modification. :D Rest assured brother!

    Thanks everyone for your kind replies! I’m doing this to get back to happiness and joy and it’s a long road. My wife and I have lost connection of the three short years we have been married due to my bad habits and ways and I can’t take it anymore, enough is enough. I strongly encourage anyone if this is a demon you are fighting by yourself, confide in someone you love and come clean. It is liberating and truly helps give you the strength to pull away. It’s what has gotten me further than I have on my own. I now wish to know more about my physical ailments. My testicular ultrasound came back completely normal which is great news. But now has me curious what could be going on. Anyway if anyone has any questions please feel free to PM I plan to check back to this pretty often.

    So this new occurrence has caught me by surprise and I’m sort of bewildered as to the possible reasoning/cause behind it. The wife and I had sex for the second time since my last PMO event. That was 117 days ago and the first time we had sex was about 40 days ago, so no PM for 117 days no O for 40. It felt great I was able to last longer which has always been my provlem, I have never had PIED but I have been battling PIPE I guess you could say. I didn’t quite feel a deeper connection with her as some have reported but I think that is going to take time to build back up. Anyway went to sleep feeling great and I woke up a few hours later and realized I had had not one but two wet dreams. Ow this caught me by surprise as I have not had a single one this entire time. I then also woke up with morning wood which hasn’t happened in I don’t know how long as I have been in a flatline here lately. Also when I woke up I felt like shit, just like I had been drained, it was a strange sensation. Has this occurred to anyone where wet dreams came after sex? It’s like my brain had forgotten about that and once it was reminded it had to over endulge or something. Weird. Other than that everything else has been going great and I am never turning back to my old ways! One day at a time to a healthy more in-tune me. God speed everyone.
     
  11. This sounds like chaser affect. Ive also had erotic dreams follow a long reboot but never two wet dreams in a row. Sounds like your body/mind is getting back into the right place.

    Thanks for the response Demon, I’m hoping that’s what it means. Was just very strange to wake up with that. Hopefully it will keep mending itself.

    im only 20 days in. but i dont have any physical side effects. i have a woman helping me trying to have sex with me.. i think that is important. i have had erections, or "morning wood", but cannot have a full performance with a woman, which is what im trying to do
     
  14. I didn’t read your the full thread because I am short on time but I know people who claim excessive pmo messes up the prostate/sexual organ and I believe this. Abstinence is the best thing you can do for it so it seems like your on the right path.

    Please clarify this: what sort of damage? Are you talking about permanent damage to erectile function?

    I too would like it if you could clarify this as well.” Whenever you get some time.

  17. Problems like leakage and prostatitis are common with PMO addicts. I have heard if you have these problems avoiding all PMO is best.

    Okay, do you have any links/research that you could share? Would like to learn up on it more if possible

  19. I can’t exactly remember where I found out but I’ve read cases where people have recovered from similar to what you described.

    I have had episodes of epeditimitous a few time over the years. Dont stress it. It has always gone away on its own. I also have an enlarged prostate and all the fun that comes with it. At its worst i would pee 15 to 20 times a day and a measly 3 to 4 ounces would dribble out. It sucked. You can try saw palmetto tablets, ut may or may not help. My doc put me on flomax and im pretty much back to normal. I cant saw if no PMO will help in the long run. BTW, im 43 and started having prostate issues 10 years ago.

    I suggest you go to a different urologist
