The medics found that the failed multiple attempts at injecting the bodily fluid caused the leakage of semen into the soft tissue and a build-up of fluid under the man's skin on his right arm and a dose of cellulitis, a common bacterial skin infection.

The 33-year-old unnamed Irish man is being treated in Dublin for a subcutaneous abscess on his right arm after injecting his ejaculate on a monthly basis, in a bid to cure his back pain.

"The patient disclosed that he had intravenously injected his own semen as an innovative method to treat back pain".

It's safe to say the semen did nothing to cure his back pain.

The case, thought to be the only one of its kind, appeared in the Irish Medical Journal under the title "Semenly Harmless", which outlined how the man embarked on the curious and ill-advised course of treatment.

"He had devised this "cure" independent of any medical advice".

The man had initially come to the hospital complaining of a sudden and severe bout of lower back pain. The man, who had been suffering from regular bouts of backache throughout is life, chose to take matters into his own hands, purchased a hypodermic needle online and started injecting himself with his own semen. The patient used a hypodermic needle he bought online to administer the procedure, the report said. Over a 24-hour period, the doctors noted, the swelling spread from the initial site of injection to cover most of the man's forearm.

To treat the abscess, doctors put him on an intravenous antimicrobial drip.

"This is the first reported case of semen injection for use as a medical treatment", she concluded.

The man made a decision to discharge himself when his condition improved albeit he opted out of incision and drainage of the fluid.

The study was called: "The Effects of the Injection of Human Semen into Female Animals".

They also advised against experimenting on treatments whose safety and efficacy have not been tested through extensive clinical research.
