Such allergies may not only be women’s, but also men’s antagonism. The male may develop an immunological response to his sperm cell. For this reason, it is necessary to consider the effects of the allergic sperm cell and the antigenic properties of the men in a pair.
What are the signs for Sperm Allergy?
There are various substances (antigens) in the structure of the sperm cells, if necessary, in the meninges. Antigens that are found in the meninges and cover semen are more immunologically responsive to the female. Immunologic problems can arise in men, particularly when surgical interventions, infections, trauma, or the disruption of the barrier between blood and testicular tissue.
