Healthy semen usually has a white and semi-transparent color with a liquid but slightly gelatinous consistency. Just as an apple changes color as it oxidizes after taking a bite, semen also begins to oxidize upon contact with air and may turn a slightly yellowish, creamy color after a few minutes. It is important to mention that both excess alcohol and tobacco consumption can promote the oxidation of semen before ejaculating, so if since the man ejaculates the semen comes out yellow, it is possibly oxidized, even if it is only a few spots. .
If you have green spots, it is very possible that there are infections, although it can also happen when deworming medications are taken. Red or brown or other colored spots are never normal and the semen must have a uniform consistency and texture. It is not normal for it to have differences in texture, nor for lumps to form or for there to be variations in color intensity or transparency. In the event of any of these signs, it is worth performing a sperm analysis.
Another sign that is often ignored in men is known as a varicocele. The testicles are supported by a kind of cluster full of very small and intertwined veins and arteries. Normally it is very difficult to see or even feel where these veins pass, but in men with varicocele the veins can become inflamed to the point that it is It is possible to see the bulge where the veins pass under the skin of the scrotum, that is, the skin that covers the testicle and in general, in both men and women, noticing swollen or varicose veins in the genital area is not a good sign. of fertility.
