What are the components of ejaculate? And are the white pellet-like substances in my ejaculate common? I intend to speak with my doctors regaurding this but would like an idea of what this could be, how serious it maybe as in should I push for a urgent appointment or are chances that it is safe to wait 1-3 weeks to see my doctors? And what terms I should use to properly explain my condition to my doctors to enable them to treat me more effectively in this matter.
1. Ejaculate contains few components: secretion from the urethral glands, secretion from the prostate, secretion from the seminal vesicles and secretion from the testicles (which contains spermatozoids).
2. I have no idea what those âpellet-like substances in your ejaculateâ are.
3. Your conditions (erectile dysfunction and âsomething that you have noticed in the spermâ) are not urgent and you may wait for 1-3 weeks.
4. Treating the prostatitis and avoiding alcohol can help you a lot. By examination of a sperm sample the doctor will get all the data he needs.
