Allergy to sperm: Yes, you can be allergic to sperm and also to latex condoms. Discuss this with your doctor.

Unlikely allergic: It is very unlikely that you are "allergic" to his sperm. Men can develop antibodies to their own sperm ( usually after vasectomy reversals) but it is very unlikely that you would develop these antibodies.
