Question: yellowish-brown semen

 jlaff - Sun May 31, 2009 12:59 pm

Hi, im 17 years old, and yesterday i noticed that my semen had a yellow-brown coloration to it. I've never had this happen to me and am a bit worried. I have not suffered any injuries to the region, however, if it is stress related i am a distance runner and have been training/racing hard for the past 3 months. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

User avatar Hi,Occasionally a small injury to a prostatic vein does stain the prostatic fluid and thus the ejaculate brown.It may not be no significance but recurrence demands an urological opinion.
