Watery Semen

Watery semen can be due to several reasons like low sperm count, frequent ejaculations, and Zinc deficiency. In some cases, pre-ejaculation fluid, which contains only a few sperms, can be mistaken for semen. Low sperm count can be due to various medical conditions like varicocele, sexually transmitted diseases, hormonal imbalances, and benign and malignant tumors. Lifestyle modifications and treating the medical cause are the treatment options available.
