This Blows Every Other ED Visit Out of the Water

Posted

A new all-time #1 has surfaced for me and my career and I'd like to share...

Young adult male presented to the ED last week with pain and swelling throughout various parts of his body. This kid injected ​multiple syringes of his boyfriend's semen into himself. The worst part? He was trying to get pregnant. Psych cleared him and he was admitted to the hospital. Mind=blown.

Wow. Reminds me of a patient who used to crush and inject Benadryl into the thighs, but that patient had Münchausen syndrome. Bizarre and sad.

Oh em gee!! I don't even know what to say about that!

The rabble-rouser in me immediately thought, "Let's hear it for abstinence-only sex ed!"

But in this case, there's obviously a significant super- (or is

it supra-?)tentorial component.

Poor kid.

Even abstinence-only sex ed makes the point that it takes boy + girl. Where did this kid get the idea that injecting semen into his body will get him, a male, pregnant?

I think you should call psych back and tell them they screwed up.

Out of curiosity, what did you say to him? I have to admit, I'd have a hard time not laughing in his face…if it weren't so sad.

Sooo I guess his boyfriend must have been into the idea of repeatedly ejaculating into tupperware containers?

I have a feeling there's a psych admit somewhere in the near future for him, too.

No, no, no. I simply refuse to believe that this actually happened!! If I did, my mind would explode.

The only way this is acceptable is if the guys were, oh, 5 years old, both intellectually delayed, or suffering from shared delusion.

I've heard all kinds of things, like you can't get pregnant on your period, or if he pulls out, or if you douche right away, or is he pees before sex, or if he masterbates earlier in the day.......but dang. I don't know how anyone could think this would make a MALE pregnant.

Unless boyfriend doesn't know and this guy is getting it from used condoms. I've heard of women doing that to get pregnant when the man didn't want her to.

Besides giving the patient nasty abscesses, I have no idea! Not exactly a rational behavior to which I can apply reason. Lol

Poor guy. I hope you showed him a lot of compassion.
