Common "Semen Infection" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Semen Infection

Detection of bacteria or other organisms in the semen is most commonly due to seminal tract infection. The seminal tract is made up of small tubules and channels that the sperm passes from the testicles to the outside of the body. Infection in any part of this tract can affect the sperm and its ability to fertilize an egg. Semen infection is treated by taking medications depending on the cause of the infection.
