Infections: When someone has frequent infections it may be related more to your diet. Has your fasting blood sugar level been obtained? Common things you have already mentioned. Soaps, detergents, use of condoms. Overall how is your general health? Look beyond to see if you find a common thread.

What does it mean when after sex when you cum it has soap lookin cum?

What does it mean when after sex when you cum it has soap lookin cum?

Not sure: Not sure what one means by a soapy appearance. If the ejaculate has always looked the same "soapy" way for many, many years, and there are no symptoms such as pain, bleeding, foul odors, etc..., then there may not be a disease. If the ejaculate appearance is new, or is combined with other symptoms, one should visit a urologist, who might ask what spermacide/lubricants/condoms/etc. Are being used. ...Read more

Normally there are increased body secretions during sexual relations so that may be what you are noticing. If you had unusual discharge, fever, or anything that made you think you have an infection then you should be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more
