What Does the Color of Semen Say?

Have you ever observed the color of your sperm?

Normally, the color of semen is grayish-white. If the color changes from its usual look, it could be a sign of health problems.

If the color of your semen is different from its usual look, it is recommended seeing a doctor for the examination. If the semen is yellow, we need to check if the semen is mixed with urine. Otherwise, the cause could be jaundice as it causes the body to have a high level of bilirubin, which results in yellow pigment mixed with semen.

If the color of semen is red, you need to take an examination to see if there is a wound, infection, or cancer in the seminal tract that causes semen to be red, or mixed with blood.

If the color of semen is green, there might be an infection such as prostate or seminal tract infection.

The changing color of semen can be a sign of abnormalities in male reproductive system. However, the color cannot tell sperm quality, such as concentration, motility, or sperm morphology.

Hence, it is recommended to see a doctor to examine further abnormalities that may lead to infertility.
