Men’s bodies make sperm and the fluids that make up semen on an ongoing basis. Sperm only make up a small portion of the volume of semen. Much of a man’s seminal fluids come from his prostate gland and other glands called the cowper’s glands and seminal vesicles.
Men cannot reliably squeeze all of their semen out of their penis. Sometimes it trickles out a few moments later. Also, there may be sperm that are further down and then, when he is inside you and gets aroused again, his pre-ejaculatory fluids may sweep up the sperm and carry it outside his body and into your vagina.
ome research has linked high body fat to lower sperm count or to lower sperm quality. Other research has examined the relationship between caffeine consumption or cigarette smoking with the suggestion that high caffeine consumption and smoking can have a negative impact on sperm quality.
A simple Google search turns up plenty of websites on this topic from the silly to the more believable information that seems well-written and informative, even though none of it is based on any scientific evidence I could find.
My husband and I use condoms for protection and recently we had a scare when a condom broke. I ended up not being pregnant. At first he said he was disappointed that I wasn’t pregnant, then said he was relieved since money is tight. I then did something that I can’t even explain to myself.
My girlfriend and I are engaging in dry sex. I am getting a lot of mixed signals about the pregnancy risk from dry humping when I look for answers on the internet. What are some birth control methods we could use for better peace of mind?
I’ve been a nervous wreck for the past couple of days. The other day, I was on day 3 of my period, and I had my boyfriend over. We have never had sex and I pride myself on that. Occasionally, though, he will stick his hands down my pants. He doesn’t finger me or anything, he just puts his hand down there.
When my boyfriend and I have sex and he ejaculates inside me, I get a really bad burning feeling in my vagina. It gets red, too. It just feels very irritated; this only started recently. Assuming we’re STI-free (we plan on getting tested next week), could I be allergic to his semen?
Lately I have noticed a dramatic reduction in the amount of semen I have. The semen is often clear and watery. When I start to get close to ejaculation, this testicle often will not cinch up in the scrotum or if it does it will make a slight “cracking” sound, like cartilage.
My boyfriend and I mutually masturbate each other. We take turns; I’ll do it to him and then he’ll to it to me. If we are careful to wipe all the semen off of our hands, his hands especially, is there any way I could get pregnant from this? Or is it just a risk if there would be actual fluid that got inside me?
I have always had problems lasting long during sex with my ex-girlfriends. Sometimes when I masturbate I will not feel like I have ejaculated yet and there will be semen-like stuff on my hand. Is that stuff on my hands before I ejaculate a problem? Also is there a way I can increase the time I last during sex?
