What's Wrong With Yellow Semen In Males? What Color Should Healthy Semen Be?

Semen is not a single fluid.

 
Usually, the components of semen are seminal vesicle fluid, urethral bulbar fluid, epididymis fluid, vas deferens ampulla fluid and other secretions. It may be the first time in your life that you've seen these unfamiliar items, but they silently account for about 65 percent of your semen.
 
These components of semen have different color, and the semen color may be different among people due to the varying proportions of various components. From light yellow, milky white, pure white, to being transparent or colorless, these can all be normal semen colors. The difference in semen color is simply due to the different components' proportions in semen.

Why does semen turn yellow?
 
1. The sperm ages.
 
For sperm that is produced early and has stayed in the body for a long time, its color may be more likely to turn yellow. As a result, after abstinence, men are more likely to ejaculate with yellow semen. So you should control your sexual life, neither abstaining from it too long, nor overindulging in it for a long time.
 
2. Mixed with urine.
 
The urine can be yellow, and it may also affect the color of semen when there is a small amount of remaining urine in the urethra while the semen volume is low. Therefore, you should drink more water and urinate on a regular basis to make your urethra cleaner, which can also help you avoid urinary tract inflammation or other problems.
 
3. Infection or inflammation.
 
A sexually transmitted disease called gonorrhea, for example, can secrete yellow pus mixed into the semen, affecting the color of semen thereby. On the flip side, bacterial prostatitis and seminal vesiculitis may also affect the semen, making it shade into a dark red or yellow fluid. In this situation, you can take the herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill to solve these diseases effectively, which can markedly terminate inflammation, improve the sperm quality and improve the urogenital system health. It won't lead to any side effects on your body health.
 
Sperm makes up only 5 percent of semen, and 95 percent of semen is produced by the prostate gland, seminal vesicle and bulbar glands, which are also the energy sources of sperm. Your sperm needs to be active and agile in order to reach the destination, which requires strong tonics such as zinc, citrate and magnesium from prostatic fluid and fructose from the seminal vesicle.
 
Foods rich in vitamin E, vitamin C, zinc, Ω-3 fatty acids have good effects on testicular function, which can help you to produce healthy sperm. These nutrients can be found in sunflower seeds, walnuts, citrus fruits, oysters, cheese, and fish. Besides, foods that contain folic acid, vitamins B6 and B12 provide a stimulant for the sperm. You can eat more oats, beans, salmons, cabbages, herrings and beefs to achieve the goal.
