Semen allergy may be more common than we have previously thought. Many women can go around wondering what their symptoms are all about, contact doctors, undergo tests and still be confused and not even know that they allergic to male semen.

Many women actually have powerful reactions to semen. They could be mild during initial sex with symptoms getting worse with each subsequent intercourse. The most common symptoms are genital itching, burning, and swelling and even hives and breathing problems in severe cases.

Allergists say that there is a cure and it requires having frequent sex in the so called desensitization therapy. There are two forms of treatments. One of the forms includes receiving allergy shots containing small doses of the male partner's semen and another one is called intravaginal seminal graded challenge in which a doctor places increasing amounts of the partner's semen in the woman's vagina every twenty minutes for a few hours.

Having sexual intercourses is required at least two or three times a week. Many have failed because they didn’t have sex as often as they should have to expose the sufferer to the allergen.

Allergists warn that any women who suffer from semen allergy needs to have a self-injectable epinephrine kit by her side during the exposure in case of an anaphylactic shock reaction that is life threatening.
