My boyfriend and I have had sex about twenty times, without condoms probably four or five times. We're both clean STI wise, and I'm on the ring. But I've noticed that every time we have intercourse and he ejaculates inside of me, it burns. Not VERY badly, but it can be pretty uncomfortable. I talked to my boyfriend and he jokingly called it acid sperm, hence the title. But I was wondering if that was common? And what could cause it? Does it change the pH of the vagina? I jokingly said it was the kinetic energy of the sperm trying to get to the non-existent egg. This is my AP Bio mind speaking. But I was just wondering, not really a big deal.
Thanks,
Cheers.

Thanks, I should have realized this question had already been addressed. But, If I was actually allergic to sperm, wouldn't the effects be more serious than burning discomfort? It just seems that an allergy would manifest it's self in a more serious way, especially with repeated exposure. Thanks for your help though, I'm gunna try n do some research.

A couple of other thoughts...

Are you using extra lubricant? If not, you might try that. If things are not lubricated well enough, you might be developing some tiny abrasions during sex and then when they get into contact with the ejaculate it's causing burning.

Also, you might try using a condom a time or two and seeing if that makes any difference. That might help you isolate whether it really seems to be related to the ejaculate specifically or not.

I can't find anything that indicates this type of problem might be related to the ring, but that's always a question as well. While I wouldn't necessarily try this first, if you can't find a solution, you might try pulling your ring out during sex once and setting it aside someplace safe. According to the insert, it can be out for up to 3 hours before your pregnancy protection is compromised. If the problem is related to your ring, it probably isn't wise to be pulling it out everytime during sex -- you may want to either keep pairing with condoms then or look for a different method.

And finally, I know you said you were both clear in terms of STIs, but if this continues you might go get re-checked anyway. Even if it's not something serious, you might just have a low level yeast infection or other bacterial infection that is causing you irritation only when you've got lots of friction going on too.

We've tried it with and with out condoms, and it only burns without, and normally I do take the ring out while we have sex.
Also, I don't think it's an allergy because I've given him a blow job and been fine.
I don't think it's possible to be allergic and only react vaginally?
I'll get some lube and look into a dr. appointment. Thank you!

A true allergy would likely cause a reaction no matter where the contact was and typically would have other signs beyond the burning. It's possible you're simply extra sensitive to it vaginally. But I'd try the lube and the doctor before I settled on it being a true sensitivity related only to his ejaculate.
