Hundreds of Men Sick of Sex

Hundreds of men are sick of sex. After ejaculation, they feel ill for one week with flu-like symptoms. The men are allergic to their own seed, research shows.

According neuropsychiatric Marcel Waldinger of the Haga Hospital in The Hague in the Netherlands, there are hundreds of men who suffer from flu-like symptoms such as red eyes, runny nose, sore muscles and fatigue after ejaculation. The complaints sometimes last a week, writes De Telegraaf.

Waldinger received in 1998 his first patient with the complaints. Two years later another man came forward with the unknown problem. The doctor discovered that the symptoms are not psychological, but that the men are hypersensitive to their own seed. He coined a name for the disease: the Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome.

After years of research Waldinger has now developed a treatment for allergy. By injecting Men with diluted sperm, the immune response of the body decreases.

After a few years after the start of treatment the symptoms reduced significantly.
