      I have noticed that during and after sex my T is reduced to almost nil (on the 10 put scale I'd give it a 0.5). It comes back a few minutes or hours later but it's nice while it lasts.

      I'm curious what effects it has for you (and any diff by gender)

      LOL. Wish I knew! :) Been too exhausted to even attempt, however I would think it would have a positive effect as it reduces stress/anxiety and leads to feel-good emotions. :)

      Personally I find it encouraging that it goes away even if only temporarily.

      Not only do I get to enjoy sweet silence again, but it shows me that whether ky was caused by ear damage or not, at this point it's a mental thing and I can and will eventually recalibrate my brain to not hear it.

      Poor exhausted Natalie! Please do something to gain some energy and attempt. I read in a serious scientific article that, if you don't exaggerate, it's very good for the baby too.

      Don't think so, but I told my girlfriend we should probably have lots and lots of it... just in case.

      It did at first. But I got to a point where I really missed sex and I was determined to not let T take that from me. Now it doesn't seem to make a difference on the loudness.
