Ever wondered about your semen color and semen quality? Well, in this article we bring you some of the essential facts on semen health and quality on the basis of semen analysis reports by experts and doctors across the globe.
Normally your semen health may be the last thing you can think about during ejaculation. However, that little bit of sticky fluid is the perfect indicator of all your overall health into fertility. Although there are Semen Analysis Tests available in medical clinics and laboratories but its still suggested to keep a track of your semen color, quantity and consistency.
What is Semen?
Semen is normally a white or cloudy white or light grey colored fluid that flows from a man’s penis during the climax of his sexual gratification. Normally it has a consistency of jelly and smells like chlorine. Gonads are the sexual glands which secrets the Semen. Semen comes out through urethra of a man’s penis.
Why Semen Health Matters?
Semen is the container of sperm, which is the most important biological element in impregnating a woman using her ovum (ovarian egg). However, not all semen carry sperm and quantity of semen does not always determine the sperm quality. Still, one has to have semen to push sperm inside a woman for natural course of pregnancy to take place.
What is Normal Semen Quality?
Sperm analysis reports say that an average male releases 2-5 ml of semen at each ejaculation, which is exactly a spoonful of fluid flowing outside your body. A normal man approximately secretes 200-500 million sperms at every ejaculation. This sperm quantity is considered normal and is an indicator of good fertility.
However, semen quality depends on other factors more than the semen quantity. This includes semen color, semen smell and semen taste.
If your semen is white/off-white/cloudy grey, it is an indicator of good semen health. But, in case you are observing yellowish or slight green tinged semen, it means that you have a prostate infection, which needs immediate medical attention. The red or brown tinge in semen may mean a blood vessel infection in pelvic area or a urinary tract infection, which should not be avoided at any cost.
In matter of taste also, semen quality depends a lot. If your semen has a taste of chlorine, it means that you have healthy semen. This taste in semen is necessary to protect the sperms from the acidic nature of vaginal cavity. However, some men have foul smelling semen like rotten egg, which is an indicator of some genital infection. Semen also tastes bitter in some men due to change in lifestyle, food habits and excessive smoking.
When to Worry About Semen Health?
You should worry when your semen changes its regular course of nature. When your semen gets slightly yellower or greenish in color, you should visit an Urologist for better detection of your issue. These color of semen is not healthy - an easy indicator of Sexually Transmitted Infection (STIs). If left untreated, infected semen can lead to serious conditions like HIV/AIDS. Also if your orgasms are dry with one or two little drops of semen, you should worry and consult your Urologists.
