A thirty-three-year-old man had been injecting his own sperm intravenously for a year and a half. According to him, this should have helped him with chronic back pain. Scientists described such a clinical case in the Irish Medical Journal. According to their report, this method is not effective and dangerous, although it is completely original.
When, after 18 months of self-medication, the man did not feel relief, he finally sought medical help. He complained of acute back pain, which suddenly started three days after he tried to lift a heavy object. During the examination, the doctor found a red edematous band on the patient's forearm, after which he said that he had injected his own sperm using a hypodermic needle purchased over the Internet. The last time he injected three doses of semen intravenously and intramuscularly.
"This is the first known case of self-medication sperm injections," according to doctors at Dublin's Adelaide and Meath Hospital.
The swollen area on the arm increased and became denser, an X-ray examination showed that there were air inclusions under the skin. The patient was immediately hospitalized and prescribed antimicrobial therapy. He was discharged after his back pain eased.
The authors of the article also reviewed the scientific literature on the injection of hazardous substances:
“Although there have been reports of the effects of subcutaneous administration of sperm in rats and rabbits, we have not found any case of intravenous administration in humans in the scientific literature. A search on various Internet resources also showed no documented cases of such treatment for back pain or other problems. Intravenous and intra-arterial injections of harmful substances such as mercury, gasoline, coal-lighter, hydrochloric acid and baking soda are well documented and usually performed with the aim of attempting suicide, which is not consistent with the case we described when a person tried to cope with physical discomfort.
Scientists warn that self-administration of intravenous injections can be dangerous, especially in the case of injecting substances into a vein that should not enter the bloodstream, as in the described case.
