Watery semen can be due to temporary conditions in a healthy and fertile man but if the semen is watery every time, that leads to infertility.
Here are the causes and treatment of watery semen/sperm:
What actually causes watery sperm or watery semen condition?
- Frequent ejaculation
A totally normal condition in teens and adults who are sexually very active. Production of sperms take some time (usually 3 days) by the body. If you are ejaculating (either by masturbation or by having sex) more frequently, then it is common to see watery semen. If you continue to see watery semen even after giving a break for ejaculation then you should see a sex specialist.
- Mineral deficiency
Zinc, especially, plays an important role in sperm production in a man’s body. While your normal food (nutritional diet) intake should be sufficient to provide your body with the necessary amount of zinc, sometimes, the body falls short of this important metal. Zinc supplements prescribed by your sexologist should fix your problem.
- Low semen count
One of the most common causes of watery semen is low sperm count. This is also known as oligospermia. If you have low sperm count, it means your semen contains fewer sperm (where there are less than 15 million sperms per ml of semen) than normal.
If you have semen that appears watery, it’s important to note if some colour is present or if it’s clear. Very clear semen may actually be pre-ejaculation fluid that’s released during foreplay. It typically contains few sperm.
