As most of the infections that demonstrate change in semen are sexually transmitted infections, your doctor would also insist that you be checked for STDs.
Antibiotic treatment depends on the type of infective organism and even the length of the treatment changes with this. Usually, ciprofloxacin or doxycycline may be used.
