Ah, men. Sometimes we just can't comprehend what goes on inside their heads. A prime example is the case of a man in Ireland who thought injecting his own semen into his arm would cure his chronic back pain. Yeah, you can't make this stuff up. The man eventually went to the hospital, but not because of his arm. During the examination, the doctor noticed his forearm was red and swollen, and, of course, asked the man if he could explain why.
Doctors were baffled after discovering a patient had been injecting himself with his own semen in an attempt to cure back pain. The unnamed man, 33, who was admitted to a hospital in Dublin, had devised the cure independent of any medical advice and had been injecting himself for a year and a half before medics discovered what had been going on. His unique pain relief method was discovered after he went to doctors with severe pain in his lower back and they quizzed him on a red rash and swelling in one of his arms. She also explained that there had never been any tests on the effects of injecting semen into human veins or muscles. The only past examples of semen injections mentioned in the journal were experiments done by injecting human ejaculate into rats and rabbits.

In a case report published in the Irish Medical Journal , researchers described a man who was injecting himself with his own semen in a bid to cure his back pain. The year-old man took himself to the hospital with severe back pain after lifting something heavy. He'd apparently been experiencing chronic lower back pain for some time.

Updated January 18, An Irish man's plan to treat his chronic back pain by injecting his own semen directly into his arm has ended with him being hospitalised with a large abscess. A case study published in the Irish Medical Journal IMJ says the man sought medical attention after complaining of "severe, sudden onset lower back pain" after "lifting a heavy steel object three days prior", but later revealed his back pain had been much more long standing. At this point, the man revealed his homespun back pain remedy — injecting the semen into his own arm once a month, for 18 months, using a hypodermic needle he bought online.
