Semen: Seminal vesicles are small glands in males that are located just below the bladder. They secrete about 50-70% of the fluid that ultimately becomes semen.

How do the seminal vesicles produce so much semen so fast? And how does it do that?

How do the seminal vesicles produce so much semen so fast? And how does it do that?

Hormones = Awesome: Once you've passed through puberty, your genital tract is primed to be stimulated by testosterone, the male hormone. The seminal vesicles, once sensitized, continuously make semen 24/7. If you were to record your "output" over a day it would likely be close to 8-10 cc/day. Since an average ejaculate is about 3.5 cc, you would see reduction for any additional samples obtained in the same day.

How long does it take for the seminal vesicles to reproduce semen after ejactulation?

How long does it take for the seminal vesicles to reproduce semen after ejactulation?

Vas deferens is duct: Sperm is produced in the testis, they pass into the vas (1) via the epididymis ; thence to the ejaculatory duct. Most of your semen is produced in the prostate gland (3) ; seminal vesicles (2). Some men are able to ejaculate a second time 15 - 30 minutes after the first. Men tend to produce less semen as they age ; thus take longer before they can ejaculate again. Hope this answers you.

How do the seminal vesicles make semen? Do they produce it immediately or do they store it for later?

How do the seminal vesicles make semen? Do they produce it immediately or do they store it for later?

Hormones = Awesome: Only 50-70% of semen comes from the seminal vesicles (svs). The fluid contains fructose for sperm to use for energy among other supporting elements. The svs continuously make semen 24/7. If you were to record your "output" over a day it would likely be close to 8-10 cc/day. Since an average ejaculate is about 3.5 cc, you would see reduction for any additional samples obtained in the same day.

What is the difference in the function of the prostate gland, cowper's gland and seminal vesicles?

What is the difference in the function of the prostate gland, cowper's gland and seminal vesicles?

Here are some, but..: Behind what we know always hides something we still don't know. Up to now, prostate gland is known to provide fluid as the major part of semen to nurture & protect sperms, Cowper's gland is inside the posteriolateral aspect of the wall of membranous urethra, and seminal vesicles are to store semen and will contract coherently to ejaculate the semen outward. More? Welcome to contact me.

Is it possible to ejaculate by pressing the seminal vesicles from inside the rectum?

Is it possible to ejaculate by pressing the seminal vesicles from inside the rectum?

Yes, kinda.: Manually expressing fluid from the seminal vesicles is not the same as ejaculation (which is a reflex) but may get some of the fluid normally found in the ejaculate to be expressed. It may or may not contain sperm.

Seminal vesicles are not visualized and ejaculatory duct is absent. What is the next step after that?

Seminal vesicles are not visualized and ejaculatory duct is absent. What is the next step after that?

See experts...: If a man has no seminal vesicles and ejaculatory ducts, he may have other abnormality in genital tract. And I assume this man got his sex hormonal profile done already. If so, at most and this time, testicular biopsy as needed may be required if struggle for infertility is desperate. Best wish...

I've read that "emptying out seminal vesicles during defecation" removed sexual compulsiveness in few men. What are the ways to empty it out?

I've read that "emptying out seminal vesicles during defecation" removed sexual compulsiveness in few men. What are the ways to empty it out?

Nonsense: That makes no sense at all. The way to empty seminal vesicles is through ejaculation. Defecation has nothing to do with it. In general, ejaculation and defecation are two processes that are best done seperately.

My husband diagnosed azoospermia. In trus test, both seminal vesicles are not visualized and ejaculatory duct is absent. What is the next step?

My husband diagnosed azoospermia. In trus test, both seminal vesicles are not visualized and ejaculatory duct is absent. What is the next step?

Follow the experts..: Let the expert help you. I assumed he had testosterone, lh, and fsh tested already besides a good general and targeted history and physical exam. Others may be required, depending upon the history, physical findings, and lab reports so to decide if he needs testicular biopsy with or without x-ray test of the vas deferens. For detail, ask, talk, and work with the expert. Best wish...

For a laparoscopic abdom anterior perineal approach with trans rectal resection. Will they remove a person's seminal vesicles? No disease in area.

For a laparoscopic abdom anterior perineal approach with trans rectal resection. Will they remove a person's seminal vesicles? No disease in area.

If the: Surgeon is careful there is no need or chance of removing the seminal vessicles and the nerve supply for erection and ejaculation, but as careful as one is it is a known complication of deep pelvic surgery.

When the prostate and seminal vesicles are removed, what happens when you have sex and reach climax?

When the prostate and seminal vesicles are removed, what happens when you have sex and reach climax?

Here are some. ..: If you're still able to have erection for coitus, congratulate, but you will not have ejaculatory shooting of semen anymore although occasionally maybe still having pre-cum sipping because Cowper's gland is still intact and if its outlet is not blocked by scar. For detail, ask your Doc. Best wish...

Does a vcug using real time x-rays see the testicles and seminal vesicles to see if urine is backflowing into the testis? How to diagnose that?

Does a vcug using real time x-rays see the testicles and seminal vesicles to see if urine is backflowing into the testis? How to diagnose that?

No, not practical...: Experience in taking VCUG - for visualizing bladder, and whole urethra, possible vesicoureteral reflex, etc. - has shown to be impractical and useless to imagine testes and seminal vesicles. Largely, diagnosing UTI-/STD-related epididymitis is based on anatomical understanding and accumulated experience.

Does sperm travel upwards via spermatic cord/vas deferen into seminal vesicles from testicles only when sexually aroused or even when you are not?

Does sperm travel upwards via spermatic cord/vas deferen into seminal vesicles from testicles only when sexually aroused or even when you are not?

Even when not: Sperm continues to travel the route you described and is stored in the seminal vesicles. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

It is true that Lexapro (escitalopram) de-sensitizes the nerves in the penis, prostate, seminal vesicles, impotence and if so is this perm ante damage or temporary?

It is true that Lexapro (escitalopram) de-sensitizes the nerves in the penis, prostate, seminal vesicles, impotence and if so is this perm ante damage or temporary?

Lexapro (escitalopram) hits brain: Not the penis nor the penile nerves. THat being said, lowered libido and consequent lowered sexual function is quite common with all the SSRI anti-depressants. These are effects that occur when the drug is there, and not when it is not there. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/depression/expert-answers/antidepressants/faq-20058104

What causes seminal vesicle enlargement?

What causes seminal vesicle enlargement?

Duct obstruction: Ejaculatory duct obstruction (EDO) is a congenital or acquired pathological condition which is characterized by the obstruction of one or both ejaculatory ducts. Thus, the efflux of (most constituents of) semen is not possible. It is a cause of male infertility and / or pelvic pain. This can cause enlargement of the seminal vesicles. See a urologist.

Is prostate milking beneficial to an enlarged seminal vescile, or could it cause more damage.

Is prostate milking beneficial to an enlarged seminal vescile, or could it cause more damage.

No damage: It would not cause more damage. There could be an obstruction, and if pain gets worse, may need more workup and I assume you had an ultrasound already done. I find it somewhat ironic where your reside though. Good luck!
