Flatline/Dead Penis after PMO?
« on: July 04, 2017, 11:55:23 PM »
May I know is there anyone here enter flatline or dead penis syndrome right after PMO even before abstinence? Is it possible to enter flatline without abstinence and without any withdrawal symptoms/craving for porn. My penis dead after PMO and I loss my libido within a day.

I think I am in flatline and will soon be 3 weeks without PMO or P/subs. I feel completely messed up but maybe because of not being interested in anything, I am not interested in porn either (and that is good).

I've been on no PMO or even MO for 2 weeks and half or something. Just before hitting the 2 weeks mark I started feeling as if I was throw into a dark hole in my mind. I suppose this is a flatline. I don't think my brain will trick me easy right now since anyways, I've never been great at socializing and as I lack interest in things in a generalized manner, the good part is that it includes porn. I think despite this feeling of being lost, that's gotta suit me right now!

Can anyone please help me. I really need to know if I really in the flatline. It happen suddenly after PMO and not because of abstinence/nofap.

I'm currently on 48 days with zero PMO because I have no urge whatsoever. Still zero libido, very weak and rare MW. It seems that the connection between my brain and penis is broken, like the switch is turned off. I tried to get erection by touch/stimulation but nothing happen. My penis feels numb and no reaction at all. I don't want to try with porn because I already trauma with porn.

I have frequent urination, fatigue, hair loss, blurry vision, feeling anxious and depress, feeling cold, loss of focus, mood swing. I know this looks like flatline symptoms. But I am not on abstinence or nofap. It just happen overnight after PMO.

Please help. I really need to know if this is flatline or something else.

It happened once in April. All the symptoms of flatline and dead penis happened to me after PMO. After a week, I got mood swing and sensed my connection with penis again and I can achieved erection again.

After a month, I PMO again which I really regret and this dead penis and all the flatline symptoms happened to me for the second time until now.

I am very confuse.

sinner123, my new recovery it's taking longer than I expected. E.g. I am going to the third week without PMO or porn subs and the least I've got was a sex dream (not even a wet dream) and a tingling sensation on my penis once while meditating. Before, when I first attempted reboot on my first 15 days I had my first wet dream (which by the way, I have never had one before... not even as a teen) and after that had another one or two. Eventually I decided to "test" my erection and eventually got to bad habits, edging and so on. There was a time I was 90 days (or nearly 90 days) without O but was M.

Now I am going completely PMO hard mode and I don't care too much. I suppose in my case will be longer than the 90 days. I also won't going to force my socialization. Whatever is meant to happen will happen in due time. Try to go PMO hard mode and also try to deal with anxiety and depression. It sucks. Just few days later I was feeling totally lost. I am feeling a bit better now.

Good luck to you!

I am worry if my problem is not PIED but something else. My dick totally dead after PMO and not before nofap/abstinenece. Please anyone, am I really in the flatline? If I am in the flatline, I can wait until I recover, it will not be forever right? My dick totally dead like the switch is turned off. I cannot even get hard by my self....It has been almost 50 days  :'(

The same exact same thing happened to me. Im about 4 months no PMO and am starting to experience very random and sporadic signs of libido. Feels like i reenter flatlines off and on. The first few months SUCK dude I had major depression and was borderline suicidal. That part has gotten much better. I am very much still recovering but I am beginning to see results. It is REALLY frustrating, but just try to keep sane. I also experienced the same instant flatline after a PMO session (about 4 months ago) and I have had no porn urges ever since. It is hell but try to keep busy and give yourself something to wake up to. Keep your mind occupied with productive activities every day. For me i go to the gym or run every day to keep me going. Stay vigilant - and never give up!

Tq Hockey14 for your advice. I will keep pushing forward. PMO is something that I always shame of. It always give me some sort of guilty feeling. This recovery period gives me a lot of time to reflect myself. I'm 26 and plan to get married before 30. It would be a disaster if this happens after I get married. I don't want to drag anyone into this problem. In my culture, sex is only after marriage, so maybe that's the reason I don't realize I have PIED until it suddenly happening now. I have 4 more years to go. I will never give up. Stay strong.

I also used to feel pretty guilty about PMO. The feelings of guilt are gone now because I know that I will never go back to PMO. It's all about moving forward through the pain. It will make us stronger in the end. Best of luck to you!

I had a shrunk and dead penis after my last PMO in August 2017 - in fact the shrunk penis was what made me give up PMO for good.

Now, even though my improvements are nothing than minor, I no longer have a dead penis and I think the penis has regained its length a little bit.

It will take time, just keep on fighting.

I remember you having such a rough time. How are you holding up man? Have you noticed any other flatline mental/emotional changes dissipate since going through the reboot for about a little over a year now (if you had any)? I remember that you had it quite rough you were very scared (I don't blame you). How are you feeling now emotionally? You feel better?

Hello,

Yeah, I was in a bad place. Right now I'm emotionally stable enough but i still have adehonia and I know that I can 'breakdown' pretty much any day at any time - as my mood can fluctuates within minutes. For example, I am really sensitive to certain stimuli, that go on to induce the negative moods - i.e, seeing a couple together, seeing something on TV about living life, having adventures, etc.

A small trigger like that can change my mood from passive but productive to still productive but inside my head I'm ruminating a lot and fighting an emotional battle.

I'm not sure about any symptoms disappearing - i think I've had slight improvements but I do hesitate to call them that as they may well be my imagination. (improvements as in the odd spontaneous erection, MW and feeling a little bit hot when being near girls).

I also think I'v had my desire to have sex come back (as it disappeared after my discovery of a shrunk penis in Aug 2017 that really shock me to the core) - but the desire is still a mental one rather than a biological one and it's not quite the same as before. But I think my brain is still recovering from the trauma of that shock in August 2017; which really only complicated my other present mental disorders like depression, PIED, and whatever else).

I haven't updated my own topic as I'm waiting for that 'breakthrough' moment to post in it. Small improvements at the moment are still not convincing enough for me. But at least I'm the one in control at the moment, not my brain.

Anyway, thanks for asking, man. I hope things with you are better?

Hey at least you're getting improvements man! Keep on keeping on, you seem to be evening out in mood too. And if spontaneous erections are coming back a little bit, then that's good!

I have just gone a month without PMO but orgasmed without porn to reset my streak yesterday. I went a month without masturbation to orgasm to a porn photo. The orgasm was better and a bit more intense, but not quite to where I want it to be. I need to keep going. I think my mood is evening out today? Not sure. Might be a placebo and it might be temporary. Either way, I have to continue doing what I need to do.

thanks for asking!

About the orgasm, I too not experiencing as much pleasure, especially afterwards.

In my early days before I got addicted, after my masturbation session I would feel feel-good hormones flooding my brain.... my word such as great memory that is. I just wish if I had experienced this after actually sex and not fapping off! Hopefully I will experience such feeling again if I find a woman (!!) but I am wary that ths is not guaranteed.

Anyway, keep on fighting!

The flatline works differently for eveyone. For me in generally starts the second week into my reboot. I have been rebooting for many years and I still relapse from time to time but it's always the same. That is, on day 8 or 9 it starts...the dredded flatline :(  Since I'we been at this for many years I have found a few things to help speed up my erection and libido during my flatline however. I have even written a blog post about them if interested. Disclaimer though: just because they work for me does not mean it has to work for everyone. Anyway, here is the link to my post: https://naturalhealthevolution.com/flatline-nofap-reboot-supplements-for-ed-during-pmo-reboot/
