Common "Semen" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq


Semen is also called seminal fluid. It is produced from the male reproductive tract. They contain sperm cells that are capable of fertilizing the female's eggs. It also contains some liquids that combine to form a seminal plasma. It helps to keep the sperm viable. Pregnancy happens when the sperm is ejaculated into the vagina of the female. It fertilizes the mature ovum in the uterus and forms an embryo resulting in pregnancy in women.
