Impact of Semen on Acne

Q from a male, senior from (undisclosed) university wants to know...One of my friends told me that he had heard that when a girl ingests semen that it helps with her acne. Do you know anything about something like this?

Dr. Caron's Answer: I would like to meet the guy who formulated this theory. One of the reasons we have science is to test out various hypotheses, and without adequate research we don’t know the answer. However, it might be useful to look at his former girlfriends to see if they are low on acne.
