Question? adult content

Is there such a thing as possibly being allergic to your DH? It seems like every time we have sex I am itching down there for a couple days. This just started sometime last year. Also What can I do about this?

  • It is entirely possible to be allergic to sperm. If your using rubbers though then it's an allergy to the spermicide or latex.

  • Or if your using any sort of lubrication. If you arent using condoms or lub, I'd try and use a condom, if you are still itching, I would rule out the sperm. Luckily if you are, it's easily treated!

  • It is totally possible but it could be a number of things. Have you talked to your doctor?

  • I sometimes get yeast infections after sex if I don't wash afterwards. But it is possible to be allergic to your dh's sperm.

  • If you were allergic to him, you would have had symptoms before now. Sounds like he needs to bathe before sex.... because I used to have that problem too. Men get all sweaty down there, and then that gets inside of you during intercourse, and that causes LOTS of problems. See your gynecologist.
