Watery Semen


Have you been ejaculating quite often in the last few weeks and noticed that your semen seems watery? Have you been panicking over the consistency of your semen? Do not worry. It is not a matter of being so anxious?


Your frequency of ejaculation determines, as a primary cause, the texture of your semen. Normally, sperms take several months to get matured in your testicles. If you ejaculate more frequently in a day, through intercourse or masturbation, your testicles might not produce enough sperm to make the semen white and thick. It results in lesser number of sperms being there in the semen and it becomes watery fluid.

It is normal?

You do not have to worry about the quality or quantity of the semen being discharged from your penis unless you do not discharge at all. The thickness of semen does not have anything to do with your fertility. And, the standard amount of ejaculation for men is approximately 3-4 ml. But, even if it is less than 1.5 ml, it is normal. That means, even if you discharge a teaspoonful of semen, it is absolutely fine.

You can father a child even with the least amount of semen because many other factors count apart from the consistency of semen. And, this is good news for masturbators. You do not lose your potential to become a father just because of frequent ejaculation at some point of time.

Also, men have an impression that the thicker semen is better. But, that is not true. The thickness of semen may vary every time you ejaculate. The sperms are little swimmers that can make their way up to the eggs of the female.

One more important thing you must understand is that if you notice a fluid coming out of the penis while you are aroused sexually; do not mistake it for semen. It is precum or pre-ejaculate that is produced by bulbourethral glands or Cowper’s gland. It is there at the tip of your penis to provide lubrication while having sex. Many men think of this fluid as watery semen. However, it does not contain sperm every time.

What factors contribute to the consistency of the semen?

  • Among other factors, diet is an important factor that determines the texture of your semen. You may observe watery semen if you do not consume the required amount of essential nutrients. For instance, protein is believed essential for making semen thicker.
  • As stated before, the thickness of semen depends on how often you ejaculate. If you ejaculate very frequently in a day, it does not give enough time to the sperms in your testicles to produce or mature. This means you will have lesser sperms in your semen and you will see it as a watery liquid.
  • If due to any other reason, like testicles being kept at very high temperature, the sperms are not produced in your body, you may see watery semen coming out of your penis. Very tight clothing sometimes raises the temperature of your testicles, particularly when you exercise. The low count of sperms is also responsible for watery semen.

In general, there is not much to worry about watery semen. However, you might need to seek doctor’s advice if you experience pain during ejaculation along with watery semen.

What you need to worry about?

  • Semen normally smells like chlorine. If you notice any other unpleasant smell other than normal, it may indicate an infection.
  • Other than smell, if you notice odd colors or blood in the semen, there is something to worry about.
  • If you notice too less semen coming out, it may be because of blockage in the seminal vesicle or ejaculatory duct. You must have an idea about the normal volume of semen you ejaculate usually.
  • If the amount of semen is too low, it may also be the result of a medical condition known as retrograde ejaculation. This condition makes the semen flow back to the bladder rather than come out of the penis. It may happen because of diabetes, prostatic infection, and other medications.
  • If you feel dehydrated for a long time, your semen may turn thick. However, it is a temporary condition. You need to worry only when you see that the semen is clumpy also. It happens because the testosterone levels are abnormally low. If you see that this condition does not change for several weeks, you should see the doctor.

Keep checking the color of the semen than its consistency

You already know that the semen should be white or off white in color and it should turn clear and runny in 30 minutes. Any change in its color is not a good sign. If the semen is reddish, there might be some problem in prostate.

If the semen is bright red or brown in color, it may be a result of the bursting of a blood vessel in the prostate. In such a case, the color should return to off white in a few days. But, if it does not happen, it may be the result of infection, trauma or cancer. You must consult a doctor.

Also, yellowish or greenish semen also indicates infections. If the color is prominent, STDs like gonorrhea may be the cause. You need to take prescribed antibiotics to cure this infection.


  1. I ejaculate once a day from either sex and masturbation. Is that too frequent? I heard rumors that if you don’t get an erection for long, your penis will either shrink or not be as hard. Is this true, like the saying, don’t use it, lose it.

    My semen has always came out very watery and not much volume. My gf can’t even tell if I cum inside her or not and I find that embarrassing.

    Could my frequent ejaculating be harmful? I wonder if I take a break from it, my semen will be thicker and white.
