Hi,
Semen allergy is a relatively rare allergic reaction where women experience symptoms including vaginal itching, burning and swelling in the genital area after unprotected intercourse. In severe cases of semen allergy, hives or swelling may appear elsewhere on the body and the woman may experience difficulty breathing. The allergy may be to proteins in semen or, less commonly, it women may be reacting to other allergic substances transmitted in semen, including the medications vinblastine, penicillin and thioridazine and some food and beverages, including walnuts and Coca-Cola.
The easiest way to deal with a semen allergy is to use condoms. In fact condom use is the prime method of diagnosing semen allergy. If irritation goes away with condom use, semen allergy is considered a likely cause.
There are other treatments available for semen allergy which all work by desensitizing the person with the semen allergy to the semen.
One method, called Intravaginal Seminal Graded Challenge (ISGC), involved inserting samples of semen into the vagina beginning with very diluted samples and gradually building up. The technique is performed over the period of a few hours, introducing new semen every 20 minutes. It is advised that couples engage in regular sexual intercourse to maintain the desensitization.

You need to get in touch with an allergist who will be able to help you.You could ask your pcp/local doctor to help you get in touch with one.

My boyfriend wants me to be able to swallow his ejaculate. When I have in the past I experienced stomach cramps and violent vomiting. Is this a physical or psychological reaction?
