Seminal Fluid Volume
The seminal fluid coming out of me at times of sexual intercourse has got lessen and reached to a level of almost zero?
You don't give me: Your age, which could be a significant factor in reduced semen/ejaculate. Often, the volume of ejaculate/ejaculatory fluid slowly diminishes with age. But it should not go to "almost zero" and it should not diminish suddenly. Low testosterone, diabetes, some neurological problems can all contribute. I recommend making an appointment with a Urologist for evaluation. Good wishes:) ...Read more
When ejaculation is stopped deliberately, since prostatic and seminal fluid can backflow to the bladder, can it flow back into the ejaculatory duct?
Gotta go somewhere: This is a plumbing issue. If there is high pressure liquid coming down the pipe, and somebody suddenly blocks the end of the pipe, the liquid has gotta go somewhere. If one asks "can it" go there or "can it" go here... well that depends on how high the pressure is and how much liquid there is. In life, many things are possible, includine such backflow. If worried, one should avoid doing this. ...Read more
Semen volume is 4 ml but watery & thin, 60% good & active motile sperms. With this result does it indicate any blockage in seminal/ejaculatory ducts?

Component of semen.: The ejaculate, or semen, is made up of sperm from the testicles & fluids from the seminal vesicles, the prostate, and the bulbourethral glands. The seminal fluid is a viscous fluid rich in fructose, making up the bulk of semen. The prostate adds a thin white fluid containing enzymes, citric acid, and lipids. The bulbourethral glands add a clear fluid. Ejaculation is the act of discharging semen. ...Read more
What could it mean when one has low seminal fluid output? Used to come out like a fountain....not anymore
Less prostate sec: As we grow older, the prostate gland loses its glandular cells and fibrous tissue takes its place. So less prostatic secretions and that is the most important component of your seminal fluid and therefore your seminal fluid volume starts to decrease!you are not a 20-year-old forever!!! ...Read more
My seminal fluid is never shot. It comes out very slowly. Is this consider as an illness? Why does this happen?

Exam of Seminal Fluid
Total Count 78000000
Total Abnormal Forms45%
Round Cells 120,000
Red Blood Cells1-2
Normal: 20,000,000 or more sperm per mL.
A total ejaculate volume of 80 million At least 50% should be motile one hour after ejaculation
More than 14% should have normal heads —
whereby greater than 50% of those cells examined must be normal
Motility is the percentage of moving sperm in a sample and graded based on speed and direction travelled., moving forward in a straight line with good speed.
The progression of the sperm, best measured using an automated system, is rated on a basis from zero (no motion) to 4, with 3-4 representing good motility.
If less than half of the sperm are motile, a stain is used to identify the percentage of dead sperm.
This is called a sperm viability test.
Agglutination of sperm occurs when sperm stick together in a specific and consistent manner (head-to-head, tail to tail, etc.) suggesting an immunologic cause to infertility.
Clumping of sperm in a nonspecific manner may be due to bacterial infection or tissue contamination. ...Read more
If sperm is never released from the testes, it is reabsorbed. Does a similar mechanism apply to the other seminal fluids?
Sperm yes, semen no: Sperm trapped by blocked spermatic, epididymal tubes or vas deferens (latter after a vasectemy) eventually die & disintegrate. Products of disintegration are then absorbed by macrophage cells. Various components of semen produced by prostate gland, seminal vesicles & cowper's gland escape into the urethra. Theoretically blocked ejaculatory or prostatic duct/s might lead to seminal fluid absorbtion. ...Read more
Is semen the only thing sperm can travel in? If seminal fluids were absorbed by toilet paper, does that mean sperm die almost immediately?
Seminal fluid result: microscopy: few gram +ve cocci seen. Few pus cells seen. Cultures: moderate growth of skin/commensal flora. Is it infection.
I have noticed what looks like a seminal fluid coming from my wife's vagina after we haven't had sex in a few days. Should i be worried she's cheating?
Why always 4-5 drops of seminal fluid comes out while passing stool? Do I have an enlarged prostate?
Prostate massage: When the large stool passing out, you prostate sitting right in front of your rectum is getting massaged. That may produce seminal fluid, which is normal. Prostate enlargement is unlikely to present in your young age. ...Read more
Is it bad to have a constant leakage of seminal fluid, even though I am flacid, and have sex and masturbate at least once or twice a week?
Urethral Discharge: Seminal fluid does not constantly leak, though discharge from an infectious or inflammatory process in the urethra could be the culprit. See your primary care doctor to get checked out. ...Read more
How long it takes for the "semen tank" to fill after ejaculation? Also, does masturbating frequently reduces the regeneration speed of seminal fluid?
In your age: Rapidly. Besides, the more you jerk off the more rapid the regeneration speed. That is in normal condition. However, in hypthyroidism, this can be different. Ask the endocrinologist or a urologist. ...Read more
How to get pregnant?:
This ongoing question is getting more and more difficult to answer. In reality, we were not there. We can only speak in facts and common stories. You have been told repeatedly that sperm do not go from the outside of the vagina to the inside of the vagina. But we were not there.
You are now changing your story. The clitoris is in the vagina., if you have sperm in the vagina you can get pregnant. ...Read more
I contracted hsv2 but I was wearing a condom, that means that the shaft of my penis & my seminal fluids are herpes free & only is in the skin around?
Herpes Two: In studies about herpes the infection for herpes two is found from the belly button to the thigh in 95% of the cases. 90% of the infections never result in sores, but the patients infected still shed virus and can be contagious. It is very difficult to blame one sexual encounter for hsv 2 without a previously negative test and a new igm antibody test after the encounter. ...Read more

I have a low volume of semen. Counts 22mill cell Volume 3.5ml
Motility 30% no actively molity, 70% dead cell what can I do?
You need additional tests to look for the cause of your low sperm count and other possible causes of male infertility. These can include:
Genetic tests. When sperm concentration is extremely low, genetic causes could be involved. A blood test can reveal whether there are subtle changes in the Y chromosome signs of a genetic abnormality. Genetic testing might also be ordered to diagnose various congenital or inherited syndromes.
Anti-sperm antibody tests. These tests, which are used to check for immune cells (antibodies) that attack sperm and affect their ability to function, are not common.
Specialized sperm function tests. A number of tests can be used to check how well your sperm survive after ejaculation, how well they can penetrate an egg and whether there's any problem attaching to the egg. Generally, these tests are rarely performed and often do not significantly change treatment recommendations.
Transrectal ultrasound. A small lubricated wand is inserted into your rectum to check your prostate, and for blockages of the tubes that carry semen (ejaculatory ducts and seminal vesicles). ...Read more
Semen volume=3.5mls, count= 62million, motility=38.2percent, morphology=70percent(norma)l, ph= 7.0, pus cell 9-10hpf, yeast=positive. Is this normal
Semen count normal: The values you listed above all are well above the lower reference limits established by the World Health Organization. If you and your partner are trying to conceive and have not been successful after 1 year, I recommend you meet with a physician specializing in fertility for further workup and to discuss options. ...Read more
I had my semen analysis yesterday report says
Super count 50million
Viscosity is high
Liquification time is 2hrs
Motality is 60%
Is it ok. I am worried about viscosity and liquification time.
Semen analysis: The semen analysis as above is normal except for the liquefaction which is more that 20 minutes and abnormal. However, if your female significant other evaluation is normal and she is unable to conceive in one year, you can ask your gynecologist for a trial of insemination with a processed sperm as an option. ...Read more
