My semen has been yellow for a long time now, im 15 years old and today recently it has been brighter than usual.. any ideas? I hope its not an infection, im too embarrassed to tell my parents to take me to the doc, you know how it is when your young...
Yellow semen is fine. I should say yellowish, not very yellow. If its very yellow, yeah, it could be sign of an infection. Also brown semen is a sign of blood in it, and if it happens often, there is likely a problem with one of the testicles.
The fact of the matter is what you "compare" your seamen with. If your seamen is on a really white surface it may seem "yellowish" by comparison. In that case there is nothing wrong with your balls, its all in your head.
Yeah I know how it is to be 15 and to embarrased to discuss personal problems with your parents. Other than your semen being yellow are there any other problems...smelly, burning, pain? If not go to the drug store and buy some cranberry pills (you can get these over the counter), take as directed on the bottle until they are all gone. Drink plenty of fluid, water, gator...no sodas or carb drinks. If your semen is still yellow go to the "parents" and tell them you'd like to air on the side of caution and see a urologist...they will understand...they too were your age and dealt with parents.
Good Luck, and please keep us informed.
Oh, if you are having pain and it is smelly you probably have an infection and need antibotic...you will have to go to a doctor for that.
