Paging ANYONE who's ever taken Pygeum

Paging ANYONE who's ever taken Pygeum

I know many have due to the effect it has for some on ejaculate volume. But I want to ask you a different question.

There is a drug on the market that is supposed to all male multiple orgasm because it suppresses the secretion of prolactin, a hormone that is released after ejaculation that brings about the refractory period, or the amount of time it takes before you can get it up again and become horny. Suppressing prolacting via the use of the drug supposedly allows one to keep going and going like an energizer bunny, having multiple ejaculatory orgasms while remaining hard. Sound great :)

I recently read where Pygeum is supposed to have the ability to suppress prolactin. I haven’t yet been able to find any doseage recommendations that will maximize this effect, but was curious if you noticed anything along these lines while you were taking pygeum.

Any input you can provide would be greatly appreciated.


It’s been awhile, maybe a year, since I did some reading and used pygeum so I’m fuzzy on the prolactin aspect, or even if there is one.

In my experience pygeum worked solely on activating the Cowper’s glands. The job of the Cowper’s is to produce pre-cum; their portion in the mix consitutes a very small percentage of total ejaculate volume. We’re talking a few drops normally which appear during the excitement phase, well before ejaculation usually happens - unless you have a major major quickie.

I have pretty active Cowper’s glands anyway. Pumping and certain PE manual excercises or long foreplay result in more than what the literature says is normal.

In the beginning few days, I took the supplemental dose the container recommended. Nothing seemed to change and I upped the dosage. After 8 - 10 days I was oozing more than I wanted to and at inappropriate times. Any even very mild sexual stimulation during the day started it going and I began to spot my slacks outside my underwear. I decided that was overkill and I stopped taking pygeum altogether. I’ve read since, btw, that pygeum does absoloutely nothing for some users. Obviously mileage varies.

During the time I was taking it I remember no change in my refractory period, for what that’s worth in your interest in this supplement.

The drug you reference, though, works in a very different way is my guess and like you, I’m very interested in hearing what others who try it experience.

If you know of a reliable source that documents a prolactin reduction element with pygeum use, I may reconsider trying it again. Easy multiple orgasms may be worth the trouser spotting. It would beat the process you and I went through to get there through Kegel work.




What exactly can cause stimulation of the Cowper’s glands? I don’t produce much precum at all.

I don’t know the specifics of the mechanism but I’ll do some looking to find out.

If you don’t normally produce much pre-cum, you might want to give it a try for a couple of weeks to see if it makes a difference. It may be that for men with very active Cowper’s, more stimulation just makes things too messy whereas guys who produce less might get an acceptable level of flow.

Related to this, pre-cum is highly alkaline, this in order to neutralize the acidic level within the urethra so that sperm passing through later are not damaged by contact with acid.

Without this “bath” provided by the Cowper’s, ejaculation can sometimes cause an uncomfortable stinging sensation as the very alkaline prostate fluid mixed with alkaline contents from the seminal vesicles suddenly hits an acidic environment. Pre-cum provides for a smooth and painless emission in additon to protecting sperm.




I would welcome any and all info you can find on it.

So has anyone tried prolactin?

Pygeum has no effect on prolactin:

Urological and sexual evaluation of treatment of benign prostatic disease using Pygeum africanum at high doses
“Furthermore, dosage of serum levels of the hormones LH, FSH, Prolactin, 17 beta-Estradiol and Testosterone has been performed before and after therapy…We have not found significant differences between serum hormonal levels before and after therapy”
