A new wife was given a nasty wedding night surprise when she discovered she was allergic to her husband's sperm.

Mike and Julie Boyde had been going out for two years when they got married and decided to have unprotected sex for the first time that evening.

But almost immediately the bride was in unbearable pain - and eventually they discovered it was because of Mike's sperm.

...

The pain, and at times blisters, would go on for weeks, she said.

'On a scale of one to ten, it's pretty much ten,' she said, describing the pain.

After numerous tests and doctors visits, the couple were eventually told that Julie suffers from seminal plasma hypersensitivity.

Dr Andrew Goldstein said: 'The body recognizes the sperm as a foreign protein, like it would recognize a peanut allergen or a pollen so you have swelling, you have itching, you have inflammation of the nerve endings.'

It means that her body attacks Mike's sperm, making it inactive.

The discovery shattered their plans to conceive. But now, after a treatment failed, they have started adoption proceedings.

I wonder why they can't do in vitro fertilization? Would her body attack the embryo as well?

in other news, a man bought a car without test driving it first, and upon arrival of the vehicle, found out he was too tall for the new mini cooper :rolleyes:
