Response from Men's Sexual Health:
Hello and thanks for getting in touch. Firstly there's a wide range of texture, odor, and taste in normal and healthy semen.
There is even variation in color, including opaque white, transparent, and yellowish. This can be caused by a variety of factors such as diet, lifestyle and alcohol consumption and even lack of regular ejaculations.
Some people find drinking more water, drinking less alcohol and masterbating more often sometimes solves the problem, as this is fairly common so please dont feel alone.
However you may have a urinary infection, or possibly, although not the most likely, a sexually transmitted infection.
Also, there could be a chance it could be an infection called prostatitis.
Prostatitis is bacterial inflammation of prostate gland located under your bladder, which purpose is to add some fluid in your semen.
This can be treated with antibiotics for about a month and your symptoms will disappear for good.
We would suggest you book in to see your doctor or GP to get this looked at just to be on the safe side and peace of mind, we hope this has helped you, please get back in touch if you need any further help.
