Discolored semen: What does it mean?

Date:2018-11-30 click:0
Semen color and consistency can vary based on several factors, such as age, diet and frequency of ejaculation. Semen is normally a whitish, cloudy fluid. It's usually quite thick just after ejaculation, but liquefies about 20 to 30 minutes later. There are certain kinds of abnormal semen color or consistency. Yellow, green or gold semen probably means that you have prostate infection. When your semen looks like yellow-tinted then maybe it is just because of the urine in the semen. Thick, lumpy or jelly-like semen could be a result of male hormone deficiency. When there is bleeding in your prostate, your semen will look like pink, red or dark brown.
Changes in the appearance of semen are usually temporary and not a health concern. However, sometimes these changes can be a sign of an underlying medical condition that requires further evaluation. If these changes persist for longer than a week or two or if the color change is associated with other symptoms such as pain, fever, sexual dysfunction or blood in the urine, see your doctor for an evaluation.
As we all know that semen is produced mainly by the prostate gland, urethral ball gland and epididymis. Therefore any sperm problem is resulted from prostate or seminal vesicle or urethra problems. When the prostate contracts at the time of ejaculation, a vein may tear and blood mixes with the semen resulting in brownish colored semen which is known as hematospermia. Reddish colored semen indicates new and dark (brownish) discoloration indicates previous bleeding. 
Irritation of the gland (prostate) can also cause it to become inflamed and predisposed to bleed.  Some factors leading to inflammation include too frequent or too infrequent ejaculation, sexual arousal without ejaculation, withdraw at the time of ejaculation, excessive alcohol or spicy foods, prolonged sitting or bike riding, etc. This can be treated by antibiotics. Although hematospermia is not a typical sign of prostate cancer, its presence may indicate an increased risk of prostate cancer. 
In younger men, blood in the semen that happens just once or twice without any additional symptoms or history of certain medical conditions can disappear on its own without treatment. If you have repeated episodes of blood in the semen along with painful urinary or ejaculatory symptoms, the doctor may refer you to an urologist. If the doctor suspects prostate cancer, or another form of cancer, the doctor may ask for a prostate biopsy to evaluate the tissue for cancer. The incidence of prostate cancer is low in younger men -- only 0.6% of cases occur in men younger than 45. 
As for discolored semen caused by infection of prostate, seminal vesicle or urethra, here is a must-known home remedy: Diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill, which is also known as a diuresis antibiotic pill, it was developed by herbalist Lee Xiaoping who has specialized in the field of male and female reproductive and urinary system diseases for 30 years. However, if it is a long-term semen discoloration caused by ruptured blood vessels or any serious reason other than infection, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.
