I don't really have a "relationship problem", just a desire to enhance our sexlife. I'm not worried about sperm count as she is already preg. and due in April. I have a pretty good diet and don't smoke and don't drink beyond a beer or two, same with coffee. I am increasing my water intake to assure hydration. Pelvic exercises have been done and for control they do help. But,is there really any truth in the claims that herbal supplement companies make about increasing volume of semen? They all seem to mention "clinical tests" or "scientific test results". But yet they don't have any links to read the results for yourself and they never mention well-known schools or hospitals as having done the tests. I tend not to believe any of them. I would like to find a diet or supplement to my diet that would increase my volume of semen. I just don't trust these websites that claim "500% increases". I think the testimonials are contrived and fictitous to say the least. Any help out there? I want to to do this since she finds the volume to be sexy and quite thrilling. It does tend to extend the feeling if I'm giving more to her. Anyone have any recommendations?
semen does not increase pleasure ,its your technic you need to work on . a pregnant woman does have diffrent sensitivitys than normal and her being so close to due date will make it uncomfortable for her anyway . you need to face facts you will have less sex now and even less when baby comes !
please talk to her find out what she enjoys now and work on that ,but be understanding that she is not going to be enjoying much at the moment .
she will be tired and emotional and not be interested for a while but give her a few months then work on improvements in the bedroom .just be there for her untill she is ready .
wishing you luck with baby x x
Thanks for the reply marra, I am not trying to over do anything with her at this time. My comments about her pleasure are referring to our normal sex life, I didn't mean to imply that this was while she is pregnant. We haven't had any problems since we found out that we're having a child. I guess the advice or changes that I'm lookinf for are for when things go back to a normal situation 6-8 weeks after the baby arrives. Just wanting to please her.
Here a few supplements that are fairly cheap you can take that definitely will increase volume and especially semen quality/consistency:
L-arginine (4,000mg/day) -- works to increase nitric oxide which helps with erection and sensitivity; also increases semen volume and quality.
L-lysine (1,000mg/day) -- increases semen quality and consistency.
Saw palmetto (standardized extract) -- I recommend a product called Prosta-Metto, sold by Puritan's Pride (www.puritanspride.com). This product contains the saw palmetto, pygeum, uva-ursi, and pumpkin seed oil extract, all of which work to condition and keep the prostrate healthy. If you get this product, take 4-6 twice a day with meals.
Lecithin (1 capsule/day) -- increase semen quality and consistency.
Maca -- take lots of this, as it helps increase semen volume (clinically proven to improve semen quality -- see "maca" at wikipedia.com for references).
Yohimbe -- I would recommend another Puritan's Pride product (mostly because they're the least expensive) called Viper. This product contains the yohimbe extract along with kola nut, oat straw (avena sativa), nettles, korean ginseng, horney goat weed, catuaba, muira puama, damiana, and also saw palmetto. All of these work to heighten sensitivity and pleasure during sex (which works for higher semen volumes, right?).
Amino acids -- get yourself a whey protein shake mix and drink one to two of them a day. This will help with volume. Remember, your body will use its resources for the most important things first, reproduction being towards the bottom of the list as "important." Whey protein will provide you will all the necessary amino acids, some of which work to create nitric oxide and other substances. You will notice healthier orgasms and probably increased volume.
Water -- you've already got this one down. Keep it up.
Time -- of course, the longer you go between ejaculations, the higher your volume will be! Give it at least two to three days in between, along with the above supplements, and you'll be surprised.
Foreplay -- take your time before rushing in! If you increase your foreplay by, say, 10-15 minutes, your body will have more time to produce semen in your seminal ducts. Your prostrate will make more semen in 20 minutes during foreplay than in a whole day. Just take your time and relish the foreplay.
I hope this helps. Despite what some have said here, increased semen volume does heighten the experience for the man, and likely for the woman. About the "mess" -- well, if you don't want a mess, don't have sex! As for the pleasure, yes, increased volume does increase the pleasure -- not necessarily as far a more intense orgasm, but as a sense of satisfaction. Most men feel a little discouraged if they know they only dribbled. Satisfaction is the name of the game here when it comes to volume.
From the above link, the opinion of an informed doctor:
Is it possible to increase the amount of semen that is ejaculated? Not ejaculating for several days will increase the volume of sperm and the other fluids. Most men have noticed that if they ejaculate several times in a day, the second and third ejaculations will have less volume. Some people think that prolonging foreplay before ejaculating increases semen volume by increasing the blood supply and fluid production of the prostate gland. Other than these two factors, there is probably little that a man can do to increase semen volume. Variations in diet and exercise may modify the components of semen, and change its taste, but do little to change the volume. Various herbal preparations are available which claim to increase volume, but I know of no reputable research that has verified these claims. Based on my understanding of the sources and components of semen, I would be very dubious about the effectiveness of herbal supplements.
Maybe volume does not increase pleasure for you, and that's your business or pleasure, or lack therof. I like the feeling of a larger delivery myself and have found that to be true in some women also. Some women do not consider it 'a mess' at all. Just part of the fun for some couples. Why would you first question someones motive for simply seeking a pleasureable experience and to increase the pleasure of ones partner. His question was simple and straignforward, no need to go judgemental on the poor lad.
Supplements work for me. A healthy body can do what it's designed to do better. A pharmceutical grade supplement with added zinc e and the amino acids mentioned previously (and the saw palmetto for overall prostate health) oughta do the trick. Best of luck Dad. raisinhale
I can assure you from personal experience that it does. For some people at least, including me. And the reason is that the ejaculation lasts more time. More fluids means more time to get them out, so pleasure for more long time, even if this is a few seconds. Sometimes it also means more intense pleasure. But it can create a feeling of unusual exhaust just after you finish and of unusual excitement some minutes after that.
This is the physical aspect. And then there is the mental one, especially if you have a girl that enjoys it.
The simplest thing you can do to increase volume is very simple, and cheap - don't have frequent sex. Go two weeks between ejaculations. I guarantee you'll have a ton of ejaculate then. In addition, I would increase your water intake to make sure you're not dehydrated.
I would add to what Morgannon said that it really helps if you manage to prolong your foreplay and normal intercourse phases, so that you give your body the time to produce fluids. A combination of these three methods (abstinence, enough water and long lasting intercourse) is the only one I can think of that you can safely practice. I would not go beyond this without credible evidence of health safety. What if such or other substance you take contains or stimulates production of testosterone to achieve the desired result? Can body ready tolerate increased levels of testosterone, by intake or stimulated production internally? Personally, as I said, I would not take the risk without enough evidence that it is safe,
Be careful with any supplements beyond a daily generic multi-vitamin. The FDA does not check up on the ingredients of the various supplements which may or may not contain what is listed on the bottle. Most supplements are not proven to the level of prescription medicines, and yes there are problems with prescription meds as to side effects just as with supplements. Most comments about supplements are anecdotal in nature and they have not gone through the double blind studies and so on to prove their usefulness. In the end, I would recommend a healthy lifestyle with exercise and proper nutrition, and the benefits of being fit will carry over into all facets of life.
