Semen Allergy :: Sex cures women’s semen allergy

Some women experience vaginal itching, burning and other symptoms after sex. They might be allergic to their partner’s semen. According to new research, the extremely rare allergies to seminal fluid can cause symptoms ranging from simple irritation to anaphylactic shock.

“Physicians need to be aware that this does happen. If they do come across a patient like this, they should be referred to a specialist who deals with the condition,” said Resnick, who was scheduled to make a presentation about semen allergy this week at the annual meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, in Philadelphia.

In rare cases (about 5 percent of the population) people have been known to experience allergic reactions to seminal fluids, known as human seminal plasma hypersensitivity. Symptoms can be either localized or systemic, and may include vaginal itching, redness, swelling, or blisters within 30 minutes of contact. They may also include generalized itching, hives, and even difficulty breathing.

The best way to test for human seminal plasma sensitivity is to use a condom during intercourse. If symptoms dissipate with the use of a condom, it is possible that a sensitivity to semen is present. Mild cases of semen allergy can often be overcome by repeated exposure to seminal fluid. In more severe cases, it is important to seek the advice of a physician, particularly in the event that a couple is trying to conceive, in which case, artificial insemination may be indicated.
