Can You Really Be Allergic to Your Own Semen? …Hombres pueden ser alérgicos a su propio semen

The bad news? If you exhibit flu-like symptoms immediately after ejaculation, it’s possible you may be allergic to your own semen, according to a recent article. The good news? Doctors may be able to lessen your symptoms, though treatment could take three years.
According to the report by Reuters correspondent Kate Kelland, post orgasmic illness syndrome (POIS) has been documented in scientific papers since 2002, but remains unknown by many family doctors. Men with POIS develop fever, runny nose, eye irritation and severe fatigue immediately following ejaculation, with symptoms lasting up to a week.
«They didn’t feel ill when they masturbated without ejaculating, but as soon as the semen came from the testes…after that they became ill, sometimes within just a few minutes,» Marcel Waldinger, a professor of sexual psychopharmacology at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, who recently published two studies on the condition in the .
In one study, 33 Dutch men who were diagnosed with POIS were given a skin-prick test with a diluted form of their own semen – a standard allergy test. Of those, 29 had a positive response, suggesting allergy.
The second study, conducted on just two patients, was an opportunity for Waldinger to try a standard allergy treatment called hyposensitization therapy. Over the course of a few years, the patients were injected with solutions that contained increasingly higher concentrations of their own semen. At follow-up exams one and three years later, both patients reported reduced POIS symptoms.
Waldinger and his team are now trying hyposensitization therapy on other POIS patients.

Hombres pueden ser alérgicos a su propio semen

Desde 2002 se documenta la existencia de la enfermedad postorgásmica; los pacientes presentan fiebre, flujo nasal abundante y fatiga extrema, los síntomas pueden durar hasta una semana

Científicos alemanes y holandeses han logrado descubrir una enfermedad ligada al semen que afecta a los hombres, en la cual, los pacientes desarrollan reacciones alérgicas después de estar en contacto con su propio semen.
Aunque desde 2002 se documentaban casos asociados con el padecimiento, apenas se han publicado dos artículos en Journal of Sexual Medicine que la identifica como enfermedad postorgásmica (POIS por sus siglas en inglés).
Los pacientes suelen presentar síntomas inmediatos al contacto directo con el semen en la piel, provocando fiebre, flujo nasal abundante, ardor de ojos y fatiga extrema, cuyos efectos pueden durar hasta una semana.
Los científicos que estudian la enfermedad creen que puede haber tratamientos efectivos para revertir los efectos negativos que tiene el orgasmo en los pacientes, aplicándoles dosis diluidas de su propio semen que ayudarían al organismo a combatir la enfermedad que podría desaparecer con tratamientos con duración de no menos de tres años.
