Semen, also known as seminal fluid, is an organic fluid that may contain spermatozoa. It is secreted by the gonads (sexual glands) and other sexual organs of male or hermaphroditic animals and can fertilize female ova. During the process of ejaculation, sperm passes through the ejaculatory ducts and mixes with fluids from the seminal vesicles, the prostate, and the bulbourethral glands to form the semen.

65 percent of the fluid is produced by the seminal vesicles; 30 to 35 percent by the prostate, 5 percent from the testicles and epididymis. However, all these parts are fragile and can be impacted by infection easy. Once men have diseases like epididymitis, hydrocele, orchitis, testicular torsion, varicocele or testicular cancer, they can experience a lower quality of semen. Amazed by the surprising effect of diuretics, therefore, does diuretic decrease semen?
According to its definition, we can know that the diuretics are medicines that cause an increase in the flow of the urine. Therefore, it is easy to know that the major function of diuretics are causing increased passing of urine. Moreover, based on the data released by hospitals, diuretics commonly are prescribed to patients who have urine problems, like urgent urination, frequent urination, weak urine flow, and dribbling. Diuretics are generally safe, but do have some side effects. One of the most common side effects of diuretics is lower sperm count. Antihypertensives potassium-sparing diuretics can impact male fertility by diminishing the sperm’s ability to fertilize an egg.  Diuretics can cause dehydration and lead to low semen volume.
If the decreased sperm is not so serious, the patients can take diet therapy instead of taking diuretic. By avoiding eating food of heat, keeping good habits and taking exercise, the condition can be relieved. If the disease is irritated by inflammation, taking a medicine care is important. Since the existence of the side-effect of diuretic, herbal medicines would be better. The diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill does not have the side-effects that antibiotics have.

What’s more, this herbal pill has strong ability to clear away heat and toxic materials, such as virus, bacteria, chlamydia or mycoplasma, which could improve the quality of semen at the same time. This herbal pill also has many other amazing functions like promoting Qi, activating blood circulation, dissolving lumps, dissipating stasis and improving immunity and self- healing ability, so the cure rate is high and the relapse rate is low.
From we have mentioned above, diuretic could decrease semen. Once the patients are suffering a disease, we can take a diet therapy first if the condition is not serious. However, if the disease is caused by inflammation, the diuretic and anti-inflammatory pills can be taken into consideration.
