Allergic to Cum II

Ready for another surprise? Males can be allergic to their own semen.

It's extremely rare, but it happens. Called Postorgasmic Illness Syndrome (POIS), it causes flu-like symptoms immediately after ejaculation, and (in some cases) cognitive symptoms that can last as long as a week.

"If you exhibit flu-like symptoms immediately after ejaculation, it's possible you may be allergic to your own semen, according to a [2011] article by Reuters in the Times. ... In one study, 33 Dutch men who were diagnosed with POIS were given a skin-prick test with a diluted form of the their own semen - a standard allergy test.
"Postorgasmic illness syndrome (POIS) is a syndrome in which men have chronic physical and cognitive symptoms immediately following ejaculation in the absence of a local genital reaction. The symptoms last for up to a week." You can read more here: Postorgasmic illness syndrome - Wikipedia

Now, that would be a true problem.

I sneeze after orgasm, about 30 to 60 seconds later. I do not feel ill. Is this a form of POIS?

Fortunately, it is rare. I look forward to reading the third chapter of this saga.
Hugs and bisous, my darlings Jean and Pat.

Not good. I also bet it's often not diagnosed correctly. But at least it's worth a test. I need to start building an Ark! Rain, rain.

Hugs and bisous Pat and French Patrick.

Oh the fun I could have with the phrase "skin prick test"!

@ Anon - If this happens after every ejaculation....while I can't say for certain, I would suspect that, yes, it is a mild form of POIS.
