Thank you for the query.

Most likely this is caused due to irritation of the digestive tract as sperm is something unusual for intestines. It is also possible that you are allergic to some protein present in the sperm. So if it was sort of episodes of diarrheas that is gone already, there is nothing more you should do. If the diarrhea will be present for more than 3 days, you should visit your doctor for antibacterial treatment as it could cause some infection as well (how ever this is quite rare).

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
