An Irish national spent a year and a half injecting himself with semen in an effort to cure his back pain.
The name of the Irish man was not disclosed for confidentiality purposes.
This was the shocking things doctors discovered after he turned up at a hospital with a swollen, abscessed arm in addition to his chronic back condition, as Russia Today reported.
The man willingly divulged the details of his “semen cure” when questioned by doctors, admitting he’d been injecting the manly medicine as an “innovative” treatment for his back pain once a month for the last 18 months, both intravenously and intra-muscularly, using a hypodermic needle he bought online.
The “cure” was 100 percent his own idea as well as his own manufacture and developed without medical advice, he told doctors in the Dublin hospital as they presumably stared in disbelief.
Due to his own “medication” to his back pain, the man’s arm was found to be swollen with semen that had leaked into the surrounding tissues from failed injections “ his last “dose” having apparently been a triple.
Doctors x-rayed the limb just in case perhaps believing (hoping?) the whole story was a monstrous hoax.
The patient’s back improved enough while he was in the hospital for him to, er, discharge himself without opting to have the abscess in his arm drained.
The man’s experience was one of the danger of “venipuncture” when carried out by untrained individuals.
