Unusual post-ejaculation fatigue

Recommended Posts

I am a beginning qi gong practioner. I practice zhan zhuang, taoist breathing and the likes. I have noticed that post-ejaculation my energy drops so much that I often have trouble getting off the bed and want to lie down there forever. I don't have enough energy or motivation to even cook my meal or go out and buy food even if I am starving. I feel sick inside. This happens if I ejaculate twice in a short period (usually the same day). If I ejaculate once, the consequences are there but they are not as severe.

 

This was not something that used to happen before and I think it is unusual considering that I am in my late 20s. I do not ejaculate too often (once in 10 days or once in 20 days) so it kinda sucks that I still get the backlash.Today, I practiced zhan zhuang the next day after ejaculation and immediately I felt weird, felt that I couldn't go on anymore in the middle of my practice and wanted to lie down again and sleep for a while.

 

I know ejaculation and abstention has been the topic of multiple discussions and I did went through them but I still wanted to have you guys chime in on this. What do you think could be wrong with me (or possible solutions) I can think of a few things:

1. Possible hormonal imbalances or lack of testosterone. I need to go to endocrinologist. 

2. Qi blockages in my body or some unhealthy stuff going on which I am not sensitive to which is causing this fatigue. There is not an advanced TCM practitioner near my vicinity so I am not sure how to get it diagnosed.

3. I have an entity that is sucking or leeching off my energy. In general, I also am more easily fatigued when I compare myself to others.

I don't know the answer but I won't let this hold me back from replying :) If you feel physically ill at these times it would be a good idea to see a doctor and maybe get a blood test (which could check out your hormones as you suggest in 1) ).

 

Once in ten days is certainly not excessive and at your age its surprising that its causing you problems - although I think you should not practice any qi gong for at least 24 hours after ejaculating to allow your subtle body to normalise.

 

If I had to guess I would say you are suffering from an energy backlash where you don't just get the usual slight lowering of energy but more like it gets sucked down the plug hole.  The cause of this could be quite deep and maybe some Chinese meds or healing (from someone who knows what they are doing - finding such person being a problem) is the answer.  Don't self medicate tho' (its easy to get the wrong remedy online by misdiagnosis - I speak from experience :) ).

 

How do you feel the rest of the time? OK or still low energy?

Agreed.

 

There is also the mental aspect of this. 
 

Often young men feel guilt or shame as a result of ‚Äėlosing their Jing‚Äô.

 

Mental anguish, emotional activity, overthinking and stress are just as - if not more draining than orgasm.

 

There is also the question of ‚Äėhow‚Äô... If you‚Äôre in a loving relationship - sharing sexual intimacy is not nearly as draining as wacking off to some¬†questionable pornography.

The feeling is hard to explain, it is just a really weird feeling inside. A feeling of a great lack of vitality.

Is it a known thing - this energy getting sucked out of the plug hole?

My energy builds up over time. It takes a few days to feel normal. But these days I still feel a lack of energy compared to few years ago when I had a lot of energy to do things. Like I get exhausted earlier but it doesn't seem to me interfering with my life as much as the post-ejaculation experience.

 

I was also feeling uncomfortable in the right region of my chest today.

 

@freeform I don't feel much guilt or shame regarding this experience as I used to. I still do it out of a compulsion (as a reward for abstaining for 10 or 20 days) but this may not be the cause.

Yes some deep seated energy block could function like this.  Not be apparent until energy depleted.  But its only speculation - you need to find someone to advise you in person.
