The new bride who had a horrifying allergic reaction to her husband’s sperm
This is another example of “Thank goodness I’m celibate.” There is an upside to not having sex, such as…
- “The swelling was worst immediately after sex. It would take 24 hours to subside and my skin would be irritated as if you’d put a chemical on it that caused it to burn”

It should be a sweet story with a happy ending: A pair of 35-year-olds from North Carolina fall in love, and begin planning the rest of their lives together. Clara and Jeff (not their real names) both have steady careers, and, more importantly, are crazy about each other. Things couldn’t be more perfect… until they get married and have sex for the first time.
“I had this bizarre reaction,” Clara tells ABC News. “I had burning and swelling and redness, which was very unusual. I thought I had contracted an STD.”
Wearing a condom didn’t help. “The swelling was worst immediately after sex. It would take 24 hours to subside and my skin would be irritated as if you’d put a chemical on it that caused it to burn.”
Clara visited her gynecologist, who, after a number of sessions, explained that the new bride had a rare condition called seminal plasma hypersensitivity. Essentially, that means Clara is allergic to the proteins carried in her new husband’s sperm.
….Although things still aren’t exactly normal — the couple admits that, psychologically speaking, being forced to have sex after months of abstinence was “bizarre” — the newlyweds are happy to be back on track.
