Question: Solids in semen

 raferalston - Mon Nov 12, 2007 11:59 pm

What could this be? For the last few months I have noticed strange yellow or cream colored solids mixed in when I ejaculate. I can feel them coming out and this worries me. They are similar to the consistancy of tapioca pudding.

Thank you.

User avatar Jelly-like globules formed in the semen is considered quite normal and common. Don't worry about it if you aren't having other problems or concerns.

Take care.
