Question: KIDNEY STONE IN SEMEN?


 goatohio - Thu Nov 12, 2009 6:17 pm

Hello, I am 36 years old and had a question. Today after intercourse I went to the bath room and took some tolit paper and squeezed out semen before urinating. I noticed in the semen there was a very tiny, about the size of a pen point yellowish/brownish smooth clear thing, kinda hard as well. I figured it was a kidney stone or something. I have had no blood in my urine or semen. and I have not had any trouble with flow of urine or ejaculation. I also do not remember ever passing a kidney stone in the past. I don't have any pain either. I have urinated more then usual today but I have been on a low carb diet for a few months and have been drinking a little bit more water than usual this week. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

User avatar Hi,
Findings of solid debris in semen is not unusual.Human semen 'gels' following ejaculation.It also may contain cell debris, gel-like 'particles' or 'mucus streaks'.

However, these are not generally hard, but jelly-like.It is possible that some 'liths' (stones) from the prostate might have somehow found their way into your semen during ejaculation.

It would be very unusual for a urinary stone to be found in semen.
Best wishes!
