Allergic reaction???

Postby sxlssmrg » Thu Apr 12, 2012 8:48 pm

Hello all,

My DW of 28 years is working at our sex life but has told me that it's painful during and after sex and that she thinks she is allergic to me. She breaks out around her mouth after OS and is sore and swollen in the vaginal area. I have no idea what the problem could be and I have never heard of a wife being allergic to her husband. Sometimes when we kiss she has a reaction to me so I know she's not making this up.

Has anyone ever seen or heard of this before?

Could it be something in your diets?

Diet may be the issue or your DW may be sensitive to products you are using.
Mr. Hearts had to change brands of toothpaste, mouthwash, and shower gel because I was getting itchy, irritated skin after OS. I haven't had a problem since he made the switch.
Recently, DH developed an odd rash on his heiney. Turns out he was allergic to the new scented laundry products I was using on his undies. Switching to a dye-free, perfume-free detergent solved the problem.

Has it always been a problem or is this a new thing? I know a woman who is allergic to her husbands semen, could it be a semen allergy?

Allergies can come and go at any point in life. And yes, she could be allergic to your semen. Her GYN can test for this. And it could be a product (new or old). Best of luck figuring it out. Are you drinking a lot of water? If not, try drinking 64 oz a day. That helped in our situation.
On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the least, 10 being the greatest) are you normal? I am a 1. And who's scale am I using? My wife's, of course!

Thank you all,
We'll talk these suggestions over and see what we can do to try to deal with this. The soreness and redness it causes are causing some definite infrequency on top of all the other issues. This one though is a genuine reason for her to be wary of sex.

As some suggested, she may be allergic to something you eat or use. I would take a scientific approach to this. Make a list of things that you like to eat that she doesn't. Add to that list, products that you use (soaps, deodorants, shampoos, etc.) that she doesn't. If they item can be eliminated, remove it for 3-4 days. See if there is a change. If you think there is a change, reintroduce it and see if it comes back. If the item can't be eliminated (like shampoo), try using a different brand for a short period.
