lumps in sperm

  Many times when I have sex or masterbate I notice clear or yellowish lunps in my sperm. I don't feel any pain and have noticed this for many years. I always figured it was from not having sex often enough, but want to be sure something else isn't wrong. Ever heard of this condition? Thank-you.
Dear Thomas,
Semen is a fluid substance with multiple components.  The testicles produce the sperm and some fluid.  The seminal vesicles produce more fluid including the sugar fructose.  Finally, the prostate gland contributes a considerable amount of fluid including proteins that cause the semen to liquify.
Abnormal clumping of your ejaculate (semen propelled out the penile urethra) may be associated with prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate).
Your physician may want to begin the evaluation with a digital rectal exam and a urinanalysis with or without prostatic massage.
