Question: sperm color

 Brandon - Wed Feb 22, 2006 9:54 pm

Hello I am 15 years old. The color of my semen is clear. I masturbate 1-2 times daily. I don't think it has ever been white as far as I remember. Is the color normal for kids my age? Do you think my excessive masturbation is the problem? I havent had any surgery,diagnosis',or sex. Im not on meds. My family is still growing so I don't think its hereditary.

User avatar Hi Brandon,
Semen may be cloudy, clear, may become more clear and thinner with sexual activity/masturbation and is essentially a normal finding. You may want to mention this during your next physical examination but in my opinion it doesn't suggest an abnormality at this point.
