Question: Urination immidiately after ejaculation

 stratton46 - Sat Mar 31, 2007 8:52 pm

I am an 18 year old male with no known diagnoses, no medications, and only surgery recieved was rermoved tonsils. After I urinate shortly after ejaculation, a gooey substance similar to semen drips out of my penis. I am not sure what it is or what causes it. Is it normal?

User avatar This is normal. The fluid you are seeing is seminal fluid meant to help nurish the sperm and allow it to be viable longer to enhance chances of fertilization.

Best wishes.

Is it normal to expieriance a gooey substance coming from the penis after urinating if the urination was right after ejaculating?
 Dr. Chan Lowe - Sat Mar 31, 2007 10:29 pm

User avatar This, too, is normal. The glands of the male reproductive tract will release more fluid after ejaculation. This can occur upwards of 10-15 minutes after ejaculation in some people. It is likely that this is what you are experiencing.

I hope this helps.
