Are You Allergic To Your Own Semen?

You think Seasonal Affective Disorder is some made up ailment by sympathy seeking friends? Then you probably won’t believe in Post-Orgasmic Illness Syndrome, a condition describing men who are allergic to their own semen. After ejaculating, men with POIS suffer flu-like symptoms, including running a temperature, itchy eyes, and a runny nose — all of which can last for a week. Physicians who initially believed the issue was psychosomatic might be convinced by the skin-prick allergy test that showed 88 percent of 33 men sampled showed positive allergic results.
