Man hospitalised after injecting himself with his own semen

Dr Dunne revealed the Irish man had injected one monthly "dose" of semen for a year-and-a-half using a hypodermic needle he bought online.

An unidentified 33-year-old baffled doctors when he walked into a Dublin hospital complaining of severe pain in his lower back.

The man had a history of chronic lower back pain.

After dutifully reporting the first ever case of a man injecting himself with his own semen to try to treat his back pain, the authors offered a warning: It's risky for the untrained to perform intravenous injections on themselves, especially when they're injecting things that aren't supposed to be injected into veins, like semen.

This time around, he had injected three "doses" of semen, entering both his blood vessels and his muscles. He was also sporting a red rash and swelling on his forearm.

He told hospital staff he had been lifting a heavy steel object and his pain had become progressively worse since then.

It was entitled "Semenly" Harmless Back Pain: An Unusual Presentation of a Subcutaneous Abscess. They initially X-rayed his arm to see if it was broken, before discovering his home cure had given him a nasty skin infection.

After treatment in hospital, it's been reported the man's back pain has improved - however it appears he discharged himself from hospital without actually having any incision made to - or draining from - the build-up in his upper arm. It said while instances of people injecting harmful substances in their body, in order to kill themselves, have been documented, another instance of sperm injection as a cure was yet to be recorded.

The only past examples of semen injections mentioned in the journal were experiments done by injecting human ejaculate into rats and rabbits.

The doctors performed a search of the medical literature and beyond, revealing not a single case of intravenous semen injection for back pain.

"The case also demonstrates the risks involved with medical experimentation prior to extensive clinical research".
