Are irritability & tiredness after sex normal?

    Hi, I'm a healthy 30 year old male, but ever since puberty I have noticed
    that I get the following symptoms almost immediately after any form of
    ejaculation:

    Moodiness & Irritability Tiredness (perhaps causing the above) Dry eyes Dark circles under eyes
    (looking tired)

    Most of the above *appear* to link into sudden onset of tiredness, but that may not be the cause.

    ejaculate, as this drains the body of vital energies through the semen. For me it seems that a
    scientific interpretation of this is that the sudden release of semen causes the male body to
    suddenly go into a different state and start replacing the lost fluids. We've all heard of the
    typical male who rolls over and falls asleep after making love to his wife.

    The problem I have is that my girlfriend (and past ones) have all commented

    honest it does always cause relationship problems for me. (Sometimes it's

    at night - spontaneity is nice!)

    So, is this normal?

    More importantly, what can be done to stop it? (Other than the obvious)

    I suspected I might have relatively high levels of Testosterone, which may contribute to this. A
    recent test confirmed I was within the normal reference range (8.4 - 28.7 nmol/L), but only just, at
    28.6 nmol/L. Would this be the cause, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

    Incidentally, I find I can be irritable anyway from time to time even with

    times worse than that.

    Thanks in advance, on behalf of me, and my girlfriend!

    Fred
