If taking cold showers and daily faecal transplanting is the cure then so be it. God's having a laugh somewhere. I thought he had forgotten us.

POIS forum mentions they feel alot worse after a warm shower. Strange how a cold shower seems to help our case, but i am not surprised.

I had POIS before PSSD, the symptom was sadness after orgasm for next few hours, or maybe till next morning. And i can confirm that i tolerated very bad hot summers and warm showers, it was relaxing but i had fatigue after it. I had fatigue in summer temperatures 32-35 Celsius. Now i tolerate summer, i even don't feel the heat.

Immersion in cold water evokes a stress response: a set of physiological and hormonal reactions that evolved millions of years ago to cope with a wide range of potential threats.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17993252

A 2007 study published by a molecular biologist named Nikolai Shevchuk found evidence that cold showers can help treat depression symptoms, and, if used regularly, might even be more effective than prescription antidepressants. “The mechanism that can probably explain the immediate mood-lifting effect of immersion in cold water or cold shower is probably the stimulation of the dopaminergic transmission in the mesocorticolimbic and nigrostriatal pathway,” Shevchuk said in a 2008 podcast with Neuroscene. “These dopaminergic pathways are known to be involved in the regulation of emotions. There is a lot of research linking these brain areas to depression.”

Any time ive tried it i found it to lift my mood as weird and counter intuitive as it seems.
Did it help numbness or anything, north?

I was interested in this topic also. Reading about the Wim Hof method, you start to wonder if it would offer any reliefs.
