My new partner and i are tct our 1st baby 2gether. We've only just started this week but both of us are worried that he may be infertile as his semen is clear and not white??? just wonderin if anyone knows? xx
I didn't want to r&r, but I assume you are talking about the semen (sorry sp)? It does seem a bit odd, but it could also be normal for him. I'm no expert so sorry. The only way to know is for him to get checked out or atleast ask a doc.
yea i did mean the semen. hope fully its not a problem , ive looked it up on the net but cant really find anything on it. gona wait for a while see if anythin happens wen were ttc and if we have no luck in a few month i may ask the doc. Also i found out that you can buy a male fertility test. I mite buy one and see if thats any help x
Sperm are colorless. It is the protein, fructose and other components of semen that can influence the color, including recently consumed food and drink.
Also, the characteristic white or grey appearance could mainly be due to the refractive index of the semen, which would vary depending on the viscosity and density.
Within 30 minutes or less of ejaculation, an enzyme in your semen causes it to go runny. You will notice that when this happens, the opacity changes and your semen becomes virtually transparent.
Regardless of the color, or how runny your semen is, it has nothing to do with the quality or quantity of sperm it contains.
Ive also read that it can be an idication that he hasnt waited long enough between ejaculations and therfore there is more seminal fluids then there are sperm. So maybe he wiggling his noodle often? Or maybe he produces sperm at a lower rate then others.
