Why is My Ejaculate Thick?

The fluid in your penis that contains sperm, known as semen, can vary in texture, volume, smell, and taste from day to day. Generally, these changes are normal and shouldn’t be cause for concern. However, a sudden, unexplained change in your semen’s consistency or volume may indicate that you have an underlying health issue that requires attention.

Why is my ejaculate thick?

The lubricating liquid, or semen, that your body produces and releases during ejaculation is masterfully designed by Mother Nature to ensure the tiny sperm swimmers are able to make their way from the testicles through the long coiled tubules of the epididymis into the urethra and hopefully fertilize an egg. It’s a complicated process, but one that is essential for reproduction.

Semen consists of sperm from the testicles, seminal fluid from the seminal vesicles and some secretions added by the prostate gland. When you ejaculate, the fluid passes through the ejaculatory ducts and into the urethra where it’s usually deposited onto your partner during intercourse.

If your sperm is significantly thicker than usual, this could be a sign of an infection in the prostate or seminal vesicles. Infections typically decrease the number of sperm available or cause them to stick together, which makes it much more difficult for a sperm to successfully impregnate an egg.

Another possible reason for thicker-than-normal semen is dehydration. This can happen if you drink a lot of soda, coffee or other dehydrating drinks. Drinking lots of water and avoiding alcohol should help resolve this problem.
