Men who suffer from the illness come down with symptoms including fever, runny nose, extreme fatigue and burning eyes straight after climax, according to The Sun.

The condition is known as post orgasmic illness syndrome or POIS and can affect men for up to a week.

Many men who experience the flu-like sickness don't consult their doctor because they're too embarrassed, Dutch researchers have suggested.


Marcel Waldinger, professor of sexual psychopharmacology at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, and his team analysed 45 men who had been diagnosed with POIS.


Out of 33 men who were tested using a diluted version of their own semen, 29 of them had an allergic reaction.


Waldinger said a treatment known as hyposensitisation therapy can help reduce the impact of the illness.


Patients build up resistance by being exposed to small but gradually increasing amounts of the allergen over several years.


He said: 'These results are a very important breakthrough in the research of this syndrome.'
