Ireland man injects himself with own semen to get rid of back pain; hospitalised

The 33-year-old resident from Dublin, Ireland, repeatedly injected himself with his own semen to get rid of a chronic back pain. The result was the opposite forcing the man to rush to the doctor seeking relief, Huffingtonpost reported.

"This is the first reported case of semen injection for use as a medical treatment," doctors in the Irish capital wrote in the case study.

The bizarre act was revealed when the doctors examined the man and saw his right arm to have swollen. When he was asked about it, he told the doctors what he had done with his own semen and he did that irrespective of any medical advice.

The man bought hypodermic syringe online and injected himself once a month for a period of a year and half. He did this after hurting his lower back while handling a heavy object.
