Definitions : Semen is composed of the fluids released during intercourse from start to finish. This includes the fluids released from the seminal vesicles, prostrate, bulboureteral glands and testes. The semen that comes out prior to ejaculation can have spermatozoa in it either as left over from a previous ejaculation, or as premature release. Generally prior to ejaculation the levels of sperm are very low.
