Before ejaculation, semen is stored in the body in a liquid state. When the semen is ejaculated from the penis, it will immediately become milky white or yellowish translucent jelly under the action of a protein-like substance secreted by the seminal vesicle, which is the semen character that people usually see.
At this time, the sperm is coagulated in the semen, unable to swim freely. 5-30 minutes later, with the participation of a hydrolase secreted by the prostate, the semen begins to liquefy, gradually changing from jelly-like to thin water sample.
This change process of semen has a very important physiological significance, in the beginning, it is liquid to facilitate the emission of semen, forming gel form immediately after ejection, which helps semen to stay in the vagina for enough time, so that sperm can be fully rested and capacitated. Once liquefaction occurs, sperm will have enough energy to swim quickly and go straight to the egg.
Semen is composed of sperm and fluid secreted by various glands. The liquid composition of various glands determines the viscosity of semen. Relatively thin semen concentration is very low, sperm vitality is also poor, not conducive to pregnancy. In the prostate, the produced prostatic fluid can promote the liquefaction of semen, which is mainly hydrolyzed protease. After promoting the liquefaction of semen, the sperm can be released from the semen.
However, if the semen is watery and too thin, which may be caused by a large amount of seminal plasma or a decrease in sperm. There are many reasons. On the one hand, frequent masturbation or sex will make semen thinner. On the other hand, the specific and non-specific infection of the reproductive system can cause sperm to be affected, such as common prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis, epididymitis, orchitis, etc., which can lead to the change of semen composition.
Orchitis and epididymitis may reduce the number of sperm and lead to thin and watery semen. Seminal vesiculitis and prostatitis will increase the amount of seminal plasma and lead to semen thinning. If the above-mentioned reproductive infection is the cause, patients can be treated by taking herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill.
It can effectively kill all kinds of pathogenic bacteria, eliminate inflammation, and also have the effects of clearing away heat and toxin, activating blood circulation and promoting Qi to relieve pain, diuretic and relieving stranguria. Therefore, it can fundamentally eliminate inflammation, help patients enhance immunity, so as to achieve the effect of treating the diseases and solve sperm issues thoroughly.
In addition, diet as an auxiliary treatment is also very important.
1. Food rich in zinc
The content of zinc in testis, epididymis and prostate is rich in men. The zinc in seminal plasma is mainly secreted by the prostate, most of which are bound with protein and participate in normal reproductive function, such as walnuts, peanuts, hazelnuts, pines and other nuts.
2. Foods rich in vitamins
Vitamin A, B, C, E and so on are important substances for providing sperm and semen raw materials, promoting sperm synthesis and metaplasia, regulating gonadal function and enhancing sperm vitality, such as animal liver, vegetable oil, green leafy vegetables and carrots, peas, tomatoes, lettuce and fresh fruits.
3. Foods rich in sex hormones
Chicken liver, eggs and other cholesterol and lecithin rich in sex hormones and synthetic hormones can promote spermatogonial cell division and maturation, which is beneficial to spermatogenesis.
4. Foods rich in protein and arginine
Protein is the main substance that produces semen and sperm in men, such as eggs, soy products, etc. In addition to high protein food, the food containing arginine is also essential, because it is an essential component for sperm production, and oligozoospermia can occur in the absence of it, such as eel, blackfish, sea cucumber, tendons, soy products, Porphyra, etc.
