In a report from the Irish Medical Journal, it states how the man got a sudden onset of lower back pain after lifting a heavy steel object and from that devised the idea of his weird "treatment". The man, who had been suffering from regular bouts of backache throughout is life, made a decision to take matters into his own hands, purchased a hypodermic needle online and started injecting himself with his own semen.
The author of the report, Dr. Lisa Dunne, wrote that there was no internet source claiming that semen injections could cure back pain.

According to the doctors who reported the case, the man had been complaining about a severe, sudden onset of backache after lifting a heavy steel object.
An intravenous antimicrobial drip was used to treat the man and his condition improved, but he opted to discharge himself without allowing doctors to make an incision and drain the "collection" of fluid. The IMJ report said he devised the "cure" independent of any medical advice.
This time around, he had injected three "doses" of semen, entering both his blood vessels and his muscles.
The area around where he had been injecting himself had become swollen as soft tissue had become inflamed with his injections due to failed intravenous injections attempts.More news: Netflix won't remove Lac-Megantic footage from 'Bird Box'

The only past examples of semen injections mentioned in the journal were experiments done by injecting human ejaculate into rats and rabbits.
The patient was treated with an intravenous antimicrobial drip, but he chose to discharge himself without allowing doctors to drain the "local collection", the news outlet reported.More news: Alexander-Arnold facing absence of up to four weeks
