So if precum is from the Cowper's gland and Sperm from the testis how does it have sperm if no previous ejaculation occurred?

So if precum is from the Cowper's gland and Sperm from the testis how does it have sperm if no previous ejaculation occurred?

Good question: Sperm originates in testis, travels to ejaculatory ducts via epididymis & vas deferens. Sperm can escape from ejaculatory ducts & travel down urethra during sex or masturbation. Thus sperm can be washed out of penile urethra by escape of pre-cum from Cowper's gland duct. This has been cause of many unwanted pregnancies & is danger of so called "withdrawal" method of contraception. ...Read more

I am 24.has one testis. A low sperm count of 24 million. Then doc prescribed a medicine for90 days. After that I had only 19 million.

Low Sperm: Well I'm not sure what medication you have been prescribed but I don't believe your lower sperm count is due to medication, sperm test result could vary from time to time and also it's operative dependent (if it's counted by someone rather than a machine), also one needs to know the volume of the Semen to judge this difference. ...Read more

I was diagnose with varicocele on my left testis which affect my sperm count what can be done to improve my sperm count?

Varococele Fertility: A varicocele may affect sperm but not always. You need a sperm analysis to check for quality. The numbers alone may suggest poor function but unless the numbers are very poor, you should try for a while. You cannot think of just you, as female factors can affect getting pregnant. You need help from a fertility specialist to get more info - not enough space here. Best wishes. ...Read more

My left testis is like cherry only but my right is twice it. I had varicocele before, is it the cause why it is small? Could it produce enough sperm?

Well...: It seems that your varicocele had an effect on your left testis. Sometimes it can recover some of it's size and function quite well. The wait period is about 6 months to a year. You are young.
You can be perfectly fertile with one functioning testicle.

Does a reduced blood flow to the testis reduce the cells ability to repair DNA damage of sperm cells? Hence sperm will have higher mutation rate?

Does a reduced blood flow to the testis reduce the cells ability to repair DNA damage of sperm cells? Hence sperm will have higher mutation rate?

No: I believe the cell would not compromise it's ability to replicate with fidelity for the sake of replication in it of itself at the cost of errors. So, if the cell were starved of oxygen, I think it would simply cease from replicating or die. So, in short, the answer to your question, I think, is no. However, I have not read or seen specific literature on your question and don't know if it exists. ...Read more

How does varicocele cause testis to damage or shrink in size? Also why does varicocele on one side affect sperm production of the other testis too?

Varicocoele: A varicocoele is just a physical growth, and essentially can compress the tube bringing sperm to the area which stores it prior to ejaculation. It does not commonly have an effect on the other testicle, unless of course there is another varicocoele present on the other side. ...Read more

Does reduction in blood supply to testis increase risk of more mutation found in the sperm since there will be lesser hormones transported to testis?

Does reduction in blood supply to testis increase risk of more mutation found in the sperm since there will be lesser hormones transported to testis?

No definite answer..: A good speculation, but no known study/experiment has been done to address your concern. Theoretically, chronic poor blood supply to tissue or organ will induce degeneration in time and subsequently altering its supposed function. Besides, note that any body event always results from multiple factors, that is, genetic & acquired. More? Welcome to contact me and I can help. ...Read more

Can chemical mutagens which enter the testis cause all the spermatogonial stem cells to mutate such that sperm will permanently contain the mutation?

Can chemical mutagens which enter the testis cause all the spermatogonial stem cells to mutate such that sperm will permanently contain the mutation?

Not likely: It may cause mutations in some or most but unlikely to damage "all" the stem cells. Unless there's a huge dose which would affect other parts of the body as well. As with everything in nature there are outliers that don't get affected or are severely effected by any given event. ...Read more

Can a slight reduction in blood supplied to testis cause the sperm produced to contain more gene mutation while its shape and motility is normal?

Can a slight reduction in blood supplied to testis cause the sperm produced to contain more gene mutation while its shape and motility is normal?

No: I think you have asked questions like this before. This is just foolish. If reduced blood flow was a mutagen, we would see lots of cancers in the feel of diabetics. We don't. If you are obsessing about having a child with a birth defect because of a minor finding on imaging or a minor injury, your physician can help you manage these useless thoughts.

Zero sperm and small testis is there any treatment except tube children (IVF) Fsh: 9.1 IU/L, LH : 5.72 IU/L, testo total 9.7nprolactin : 245.7mIU/L?

High prolactin: Elevated prolactin can indicate a pituitary tumor (benign) which can interfere with hormone production and sperm levels, in addition to small testicle size. Ask your healthcare provider to order a CT scan of your skull to rule out a pituitary tumor. There are medications which can treat this condition, not just surgery. With "zero" sperm, even IVF is not possible. ...Read more

What could be the cause of wide hips, feminine fat distributionand low testosterone, when sperm count, testis size and FSH are normal but LH is low?

What could be the cause of wide hips, feminine fat distributionand low testosterone, when sperm count, testis size and FSH are normal but LH is low?

Hmmm...: Low t with a low lh suggests a pituitary gland problem. The body issues you mention are suggestive of klinefelter's syndrome, a genetic disorder, but these individuals will typically have minimal to no sperm. I recommend that you see an urologist or endocrinologist. Good luck. ...Read more
