Things You Probably Haven’t Heard About Semen


They are fast and furious

Semen are fast and furious right from the start. According to Harry Fisch, A reproductive medicine professor, the first ejaculation usually has the highest concentration of sperm.

The semen stick around in the body for longer than people think

Contrary to what most people think, sperm usually stay in the body for 48 hours after sexual intercourse. However, semen can also stay for 5 days to 1 week. It all depends on how friendly a woman’s cervical mucus is. Interestingly, the sperm are protected by cervical mucus so that they can stay longer in the body when a woman is just about to ovulate. This is the period when she is most fertile.

Lots of masturbation or sex can never lower a man’s semen count

A man can never run out of semen simply because he has had a lot of sex or due to masturbation. This is because the number of semen that his body can produce is unlimited. Frequent ejaculation can only lower the volume of semen produced. If his sperm count is normal, then there is nothing to worry about.

Temperature fluctuation can lower sperm count

According to Fisch, sperm count can fluctuate with seasons. A man’s sperm count tends to be high in the winter month and low in the summer months. This is because exposure to heat reduces sperm count. Reduction in sperm count can also be caused by many things e.g. relaxing for a long time in a hot tub, keeping the MacBook on the laps for a long time etc. Staying in a Jacuzzi at 104 degrees can tremendously reduce a man’s sperm count.


The decrease in sperm count caused by exposure to high temperatures can last for a long time. Therefore, it is not advisable to go into hot tubs or in any other high temperature environments when you are trying to have children.

Male and female sperm have similar abilities

Semen may contain either X or Y chromosomes. Male and female swimmers are created equal. The idea that one of them swims faster and is more resilient is simply a myth.

It is extremely rare to find someone that is allergic to sperm

You have probably heard that there are some women who are allergic to semen. They say that it can cause redness and inflammation. However, in most cases, there are other factors that lead to such occurrences (e.g. vaginal infections). It is extremely rare to be allergic to semen. Note to men, some women may say this to avoid contact with your semen.

Before the grand finale, the semen have a very intense journey

The semen expelled in an average ejaculation are prepared for an average period of two and a half months. A semen is initially formed in the testicles and it then moves to the epidermis. From the epidermis, a fully grown man fluid moves through the vas deferens and later mixes with fluid to form what is commonly know semen. A little bit of fluid is added by the prostrate before ejaculation.

The semen are affected by a man’s health

Semen are generally healthier for men who are below the age of 40. They will even be healthier for men who don’t smoke, take a high fat diet and are not exposed to toxins in the environment.

Therefore, if you are considering starting a family, you should keep that in mind.
