Taste and Color of a Healthy Semen: Some male patients may find out during medical examination that the taste and color of their semen may not be normal, so what is the taste and color of the normal semen? In fact, the semen secreted by a regular healthy male adult will generally appear milky white or slightly yellowish. If you find that there is a slight difference in taste and color of your semen, then you should consult a doctor.

What does normal healthy semen smell like?

Semen is the same body fluids as saliva, gastrointestinal fluid, blood, and such, but the smell of semen is most pronounced. Semen is not as simple as other body fluids, it is a mixture of a few components; prostate fluid, testicular fluid, sperm serum and various secretions from the urethra and vasectomy.

The smell of normal semen is emitted by oxidation of a chemical called argina, much like the smell of chestnut flowers. Argina is one of the many important components contained in prostate secretions.The oxidation of argina involves sperm fluid. Prostate fluid obtained through rectal massage generally does not have the smell of natural ejaculation fluid.

It can be seen that the smell of normal ejaculation semen comes from the prostate, but only with the participation of sperm serum.The absence of this special smell of semen often indicates impairment of prostate function, which is often not found in the semen of many prostate patients.

What is the color of a normal healthy semen?

The color of a normal semen should be milky white or yellowish. Some men might have a light yellowish color due to not ejaculating (masturbating) for a long time, so the color has slightly changed and has become more viscous, which is a perfectly normal phenomenon.
If men have inflammation in the reproductive tract, semen will also be yellow, and a large amount of pus can be seen under the microscope, most likely due to purulent infection of the prostate and sperm.

If the semen is red, light red, brownish-red which is slightly similar to the shade of soy sauce color, or a large amount of red blood cells can be seen under the microscope, which is also known as blood. Most of this symptom is caused by sperm prostatitis. In addition to bleeding symptoms, some people may experience this with pain.
