Title: Intro/Odd Thing During Reboot
Post by: RodRam on June 05, 2020, 08:21:41 PM
Hello everyone. I am new to the forum but have been reading a lot of the discussions on here. Thank you all for sharing. I've concluded I've been experiencing PIED for quite some time now. I guess I never really saw it as a problem until recently as its gotten worst.
Quick backstory, I'm a 37 year old male who jumped on the internet porn train in the early 2000's. It wasn't always a daily habit, but now that I look back I think sometime in my late 20's it did become daily with some longer sessions involved. In my early 30's that's when I noticed myself losing erections almost every time I had sex. Soon I just started loosing interest in having sex altogether and would really just do so cause my gf at the time would want to. Although masturbating to porn always stayed consistent.
Fast forward to now, I meet this great girl and we have sex. As predicted I can't maintain an erection about mid way through. She was genuinely crushed and confused by the whole situation. So while this relationship will probably not make it due to my PIED, I decided I should something about this now so I don't ever find myself in this scenario again.
I've been 36 days without PMO and its going okay. Seeing some morning wood re appear, which I realized I hadn't had in years. The odd thing that I noticed was earlier as I was sitting on the toilet, I noticed pre ejaculate seeping out by itself. Seemed very weird to me, is this a normal occurrence when staying away from PMO? Thanks for reading and to anyone who could advise.

This happened to many other guys who were rebooting too. I personally haven’t experimented that, but it’s common during a reboot. If you did not have this before your reboot, then I would not worry about it. We still don’t know why it happens, but it eventually goes away.

Good luck with your reboot!

Yeah this never happened to me before. I mean probably during puberty I suppose. I think I have also been in a flatline, and just recently now starting to feel different down there. Just like sensations I haven't felt in a long while. Thank you for getting back to my question. I'm looking forward to where this process takes me.

Just a little follow up on my situation. Saw my PCP and gave him a detailed account of my issues with going soft during sex and lack of libido. Also went into detail about my PMO habits. He advised I get a testosterone/thyroid blood panel done so he could rule out any issues there. Everything came back fine. He also suggested I see a psychiatrist to rule out depression as the cause. Just did that today, and no depression. I did go into details about my PMO habits with him as well. He did say he can see why that would happen, but that I should check with a sex therapist also. So no too many of those in my area, well at least ones that are covered by my insurance. I ll keep looking for a therapist, but I'm convinced its PIED. Going on day 40 of no PMO and feeling pretty good.

You're describing exactly what happened to a lot of us.
When i discovered my PIED i seriously turned from daily to occasionally. That helped to have sex with my GF.
When i turned into hardmode (no PMO) i had the same thing with semen on toilet and stuff. Only in the beginning, it faded, like morning wood, afterwards. So, don't worry. It should go away. Now be patient and stay off PMO.

I've been PMO free for 50 days. Good to know this is a common occurrence. Thanks for the feedback!
