What Can Patients Do about Watery Semen Due to Epididymitis?

Epididymitis is a common disease among young men. Whenever the body resistance decreases, some pathogenic bacteria such as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus will take the opportunity to enter the vas deferens and invade the epididymis in a reverse direction to cause inflammation, leading to great inconvenience to the normal life of patients. 

Some patients find that the semen ejaculated after epididymitis is watery, and they worry about something wrong with their bodies. To answer this question, patients need to find out what watery semen is and why it occurs.
Normal semen is pale yellow or milky white and is a viscous fluid. When it is expelled from the body, it is relatively viscous and will liquefy within a short period. When the sperm is light in color and resembles water, the medical community often defines it as watery sperm. 
To some extent, watery sperm is clinically defined as an abnormality. Watery semen is a type of oligospermia. Oligospermia is generally classified as idiopathic, primary, and secondary oligospermia. When a patient finds this condition, he should consult a regular doctor to find out the exact cause.
Before diagnosing watery semen abnormalities, it is necessary first to clarify whether the ejaculatory process is complete in patients with epididymitis. The entire ejaculation process means that ejaculation is performed when the erection is full and orgasm is reached. If watery sperm appears in this case, this is usually accompanied by incomplete development of the seminal tract, such as absent vas deferens and absent seminal vesicle glands; or serious inflammation in the seminal vesicle glands, testes, and epididymis area, all of which will affect the amount of semen secretion and clinically manifest as watery semen.
When a patient with epididymitis finds watery semen, the patient should pay enough attention to this situation. The damage to sperm caused by epididymitis is severe and multifaceted. Epididymitis patients can have normal ejaculation, but when epididymitis occurs, it can lead to testicular pain and affect the quality of sperm. If the epididymis is unfortunately infected with disease-causing microorganisms, inflammation occurs, causing the lumen to become congested and edematous. 
Thus, its ability to feed sperm is naturally reduced, and the various abilities that sperm should obtain in the epididymis are significantly weakened, which eventually leads to a significantly higher percentage of inactive sperm or dead sperm in the discharged semen, so the discharged semen will look like water.
For watery semen, starting with personal life and medical treatment is essential.
Watery semen is associated with frequent masturbation or sexual intercourse. Excessive and frequent ejaculation, for example, multiple ejaculations a day or ejaculation every day, can cause a decrease in sperm content, resulting in a dilution of semen similar to water. 
Therefore, patients should maintain a regular sexual life. It is recommended that patients with epididymitis abstain from sex for some time and then further observe whether the quality of semen has improved. If not, visit a hospital to clarify the cause if necessary.
In addition, for the inflammation in the body of patients with epididymitis, patients can consider treating the inflammation first. Patients can take sensitive antibiotics under the guidance of a doctor and kill the bacteria that cause inflammation with antibiotics.
It is also recommended to take the herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. This medicine has broad-spectrum anti-bacterial properties and can kill many kinds of bacteria, viruses, and pathogens that cause diseases of the male genitourinary system. Besides, it is effective and does not harm the patient.
