Irish doctors are scratching their heads in disbelief after a 33 year old man was hospitalized after injecting his own semen into his arm for over a year and a half. According to Gizmodo the man started practicing this bizarre procedure as means to cure his chronic back pain. Though, it didn’t work as planned.
The man who remains unnamed sought medical attention after the self developed cure didn’t work for his back pain. He complained of heavy lower back pain after he said he lifted a heavy metal object, three days before checking himself into the hospital. It would be during the checkup when the doctor would discover a patch of red swelling on his right forearm. The man would admit to injecting himself with his semen as a cure to his back pain with a hypodermic needle he purchased online.
The picture below is a picture of his arm during the visit, in which he injected himself with three doses of semen before his check up. The swelling in his arm are the doses of semen entering his blood vessels and muscles.
“This is the first reported case of semen injection for use as a medical treatment,” the doctors at Adelaide and Meath Hospital in Ireland stated. They’ve conducted a case study and titled it Semenly’Harmless Back Pain: An Unusual Presentation of a Subcutaneous Abscess. The swelling around the man’s arm was hard and had grown into a abscess. The doctors immediately hospitalized the patient, treating him with an intravenous antimicrobial therapy. After the patient’s back pain improved, he discharged himself.
