Is it possible to be allergic to sperm?
So your girlfriend ALLEGEDLY doesn't like blow jobs because she's "allergic" to sperm. What a joke, right? Maybe. But also, it may be entirely truthful. Technically this is possible, if extremely rare. "Yes, it is rare but possible for women to have allergic reactions to their partner’s ejaculate," says Dr. Laura Berman, PhD and assistant clinical professor, OB/GYN & psychiatry at the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Common symptoms include redness, swelling, pain, itching, and a burning sensation in the vaginal area (or oral area, as the case may be). "One way to avoid this problem is through the habitual use of condoms -- a good idea for everyone, even those without a sperm allergy," says Dr. Berman.
