I am having a problem, which I think stems from a medication that I take.. There are three different, but related ?'s here.\par
first I have 26 yrs old & I am on methadone (90 mgs per day) and it has slowed my sex drive down considerably, and sometimes my testicles hurt, cause it is like I have blue balls or something.. The pipes (for lack of a better word) inside that the semen follow through are like they are clogged up.. There are always lumps there and they kinda hurt.. And when I ejaculate now, most of the time there is a jelly-like string of semon, somtimes bigger than other times.. And you can feel it when it comes out, and allot of times they are so big that you can feel my semon coming up, and then it goes back down,and I only cum a little bit.. It has helped in the past if I squeeze my penis as I am ejaculating and let it build up that way I can get the jelly like lumps to actually come out.. And another thing.. I have watched many pornos in the past and guys semon is always thick, and pure white.. Mine is always a clear liquid, other than the jelly like substance that I have noticed since being on methadone. I have read that squeezing while ejaculating is bad for you.. I used to masturbate for pleasure, now I do it just to feel better.. And cause I am trying to get my semon to come out.. There are way too many times that hardly anything comes out cause of this jelly like semon, it just goes back down.. And it makes my testicles hurt..\par
now, on a side note, I think something that may be causing this is since I have been on methadone I stay constipated, and it feels like something is swollen or something, causing me not to be able to get the semon out.. Cause last night, I was using the restroom and my stool is verry hard, and thick,.. It hurts to use the restroom.. Last night as the stool was coming out, it was like it pushed some jelly like semon up through my penis and caused it to come out.. That doesn't sound right to me. I am worried about it. Is there anything that I should do? Is this normal? Is there anything that I can do to help get this jelly like semon out, or cause it to not be so jelly like? Like, while ago I tried to masturbate, and the only reason was to try to get some of that out, cause the last 5 times I have ejaculated, you could feel the jelly like semon come up, but not able to come out.. I squeezed trying to build up pressure to make it come out, and it felt like something strained, or was pulled.. A sharp pain.. Above my pubic region.. This same sharp pain happend the other day while doing some crunches (sit-ups) is there anything to be worried about? I don't know where to go to get answers, I just found this site.. It takes me awhile to get all this down, and most of the time I don't get any response.. I just want to find an answer.\par
thanx so much\

I would also appreciate any info as I have the same problem with my semen although I don't get any pain, I am 32 years of age and I have had this problem from about 15 years of age.

I read on another site sugers make up part of your semen and I have a serious junk food addiction, do you also crave suger?

Another thing I think may have a connection is marijuana, I have been a heavy user also since the age of about 15, I gave up for 2 years but my semen still had the obvious abnormalities.

Aside from the suger and the weed my diet is ok and I regularly exercise.

I went to a sexual health clinic but the doctor had not heard of this condition and told me that because I had been living with it for so long it's unlikely to cause any problems.

Hi
I'm 32 and I'm having the same problems since I was 15. I've never smoked, and ate very well, and have had a lot of phisical activities, but have had masterbated so much even before I became an adolt.
I dont think it's relevent to smoking. I'm trying to cure it with meditation and I've been partialy seccessfull.

My exhusband had this problem and we never conceived. I am wondering if any of you have sired a child. He had a low motility to his sperm after it was tested.

I would think it has nothing to do with drugs. Diet, is probably a stronger indication. He had Coca Cola everyday of his life, liter's.

I would tell you to drink more water and fruit juices. Wear boxers and don't take hot baths.

Hi, I have a similar problem, i am 27 years old and I have conceived and am proud to say I now have a daughter who is 3 years old. I don't have the pain or any other symptoms. Just small jelly like blobs in my semen. I have only noticed this since I had chemo and radiotherapy for cancer which I had when I was 21. I have been told its nothing to worry about and is perfectly natural in some men. Therefore I would like to believe its not due to cancer. Dispute the horrible nature of my illness I smoke and have in the past done drugs, I have also been told by a medical professional this has nothing to do with the jelly like substance either. I hope this has been a help to some of you. Sorry I can't elaborate any further. Have fun and stay safe. All the best. Martyn

Same problem
I am 20 yrs old, my husband and I have been together since we were 13. (He's 20yrs old as well) He has experienced the same problem for 2yrs now. I used to use the birth control - the depo shot, and I quit using it when I was 17 and didn't take any other form of birth control since. I have heard that it can make you sterile. My husband thinks the problem is with his sperm( it is almost like a silcon rubbery substance). I have tried looking up info. on what the jelly like sperm could be linked to, haven't really found anything too relevent. We used to smoke weed alot but for the past 2 yrs we only smoke maybe once every 2-3 months. So I don't think this is causing any problems. So if anyone finds any relevent info on the strange jelly like sperm please post it.

jelly
i have the same thing. i think it has to do with previous or untreated sexual disease. i keep getting them and dont usually get them treated brecause its expensive where i live. its always a burining when i urinate. my semen sometimes has a bad smell, yellowish(sometimes), has a little of silicone like jelly substance with the semen and in the rest of the semen theres more clear stuff than the white stuff. i also do smoke a spliff once in a while. i also got a semen analysis done, and it said low motility. although the analysis was done for only 1 hr rather than the usual 3 hrs which could have also shown wrong info.

i still get a burning in my urine, but its more of a warm feeling than a burn...
im kinda worried about it all. please advise on solutions or causes

Re: "To much masterbation is the cause of thick urine"
No, one cause is actually from a lack of masterbation...Ive seen many cases of this in medical school ranging in severity from just a few clumps every now and again after 2-3 week with no sexual or personal stimuli, to the more severe cases where a ejactulation event cause extreme pain fallowed by a "sqeezing a tooth paste tube" effect comming out of the urine track, the more serious cases tend to be found in those who have sustained injury in the past or have reached an age where sex or simular activities are to strenuous on the body to even attempt AKA OLD AGE -(years of no ejactulation can cause this effect in the younge as well) and trust me it does happen in some extreme cases.

Jelly in ejaculate
I'm 47 and have had this condition since puberty. In the early days the jelly was string like and is now more like small to medium sized lumps. I have 2 kids and there was never any problem with sperm count. I have had a vasectomy which did not change the composition of the ejaculate. I have had a few ocaissions where the clumps were hard to pass but no other concerns. I seen a Urologist regarding this and was informed it was normal nothing to worry about. Hey the ladies were impressed that I can shoot well over my head, stand back! Hope this relieves some of the pressure guys!

possible solution
With heroin addicts and methodone you should be drinking more water then most. Well, in general i was reading some medical sites, and this problem is linked to lack of fluids, When I am not drinking enough water (which I dont drink alot of water) mine come out choppy and stringy as well, Hit alot of h20 for a week, stop yanking the crank in the meantime and then try again, the first time it might be choppy to clear it out but if you are getting enough fluids, it should work itself out Smile
Gonna try it myself and up date this post in 7 days.

I've had this for a few years
It feels like a clogged feeling and the longer I go without ejac the worse it gets. I started when I was about 35.. I'm 39 now.
Sometimes there's a feeling that I have to pee. I've been to the eurologist numerous times a few years ago about it and the did all kinds of test including a camera up my penis to see if any urine was leaking .. bladder looked normal. Over the past couple year I've tried to masterbate ever day or so to keep things moving. Also the main feeling that feels good when having sex is dulled quite a bit which makes it harder to keep it erect. I've tried viagra and it helps a little with erections but doesn't really do anything for the core problem.
I have been a person that doesn't drink enough water and too much diet cokes.. I'm giving up caffeine and drinking more water. I hope it helps.. Gonna try to eat healthier in general since I"m a junk food junkie.
I have always exercised regularly..

yes
ok, me experiment proved positive, I have been drinking more water and tried at aver to drink at least 40 ounces a day and my seman did water down and in less clogged.
As far as diet coke goes, asparte (or what ever that sweetener is) is NOT good for you and can cause cancer in lab rats. JFI. Smile

But drink ALOT of water and dont slack off or it will revert.

Hope that helps.

Jelly-like semen
Hey guys, I'm currently a heroin user and I too have the same problem where my semen is also coming out thick, but on closer inspection some of the come blobs contain a jelly like substance, maybe described as stringy . In my experience the jelly like substance only appears when I dont seem to masturbate for days and always assumed it was just a large build up of come. The more I wanked on the regs, the more normal it looked being less cloudy and clear.

Sometimes after I had come, on touching the thick jelly like substance my assumption was it was just a case of a thick build up of cells with the jelly bits in the middle. As a smoker, I regularly cough out really pure thick phlegms, which when touched are a larger scale jelly like substance. The jelly bits in my semen are similar in it's make up and texture but on a smaller scale. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one as I was beginning to think there was something wrong with me.

Before, I had also assumed as a heroin user, it was another form of my body ejecting all the gear and sh*t from my system, as the times when I have used then come, happen to be the times when the jelly substance appear more after I come. For all your information, I too also have a large sugar intake drinking numerous cans of soft drink each day so may also link this to someone elses theory above. I hope someone else reading this may find this useful and be put at ease as I did, after I had read the previous posts.

Prostate infection
Thick jelly like semen is a symptom of a prostate infection, I too have this problem. Once in a while my testicles will have a sharp pain, and sometimes if it gets really bad I have trouble urinating. Caffeine and alcohol can exasperate the problems. I suggest seeing a urologist. Although there is the one person who said they saw a urologist, and they found nothing, to that person I ask did they check your prostate?

Jelly Semen
Hi Guys. This seems to be a common thing for guys. I think it's all to do with your diet. When I drink alot of alcohol, my semen is thicker and has jelly like bits in it.

I'll also try drinking only water this week and see how that goes and i'll let you know the result.

The net doesn't have much info on this which makes you panic but I honestly believe the only thing wrong is poor diet and not enough water.

Anyway, i'll let you know how i got on in 7 days...

Jelly Stringy Bits
Hi Guy, I'm 40 years old, don't smoke, hardly drink, have a normalish diet, and have 4 kids. I have always had jelly/stingy bits in my semen. Even if I ejaculate twice in the same day it is still stringy (not as thick though). If I leave it a few days, it does get very thick and makes it more pleaserable/painful when I cum.
It is normal to have jelly like semen.
If you have pain all the time or discharge from your penis when not sexually aroused then really you should get it checked out at a Sexual health clinic.

Jelly Semen
Hi there. I am 24 years old and have this very same problem. Glad to hear Im not the only one. I have linked it personally with dehydration. When I drink loads of alcohol and then have sex the next day there can be massive jelly, silicon parts to my semen. If I rub these jelly parts between my fingers it will eventually grind down to a powder. I to am worried about fertility as I can not forsee these jelly bits being very good swimmers. I keep extremely fit, but am fully aware that my water intake is very low and like my fizzy drinks. I am going to make a sustained effort to drink 2litres of water a day for a week or so and will also let you know my results.

In addition I have found information on the web about the conditions and the issue of fluid intake is always mentioned, so there must be some truth to it.

Do other people find that even the semen that does not contain clumpy bits is more viscous than you would expect and does not propell that far. (Maybe not even reaching the belly button)

i'm 23 years old.. i have this too.. however it doesn't happen too often.. i recently masturbated and parts of it came out jelly like.. it has happened a few times over the years.. like someone said above it may be caused by dehydration took a bike ride came home ate supper and masturbated.. my mouth is very dry and i feel thirsty. i do drink a lot of diet pepsi and usually about 2-3 liters of water before and after workouts.

i think it is nothing to concern.. maybe try masturbating when you are really dehydrated and see what happens..

There were so many posts about the gel secretions, I just had to write! Gel secretions are pretty common in the ejaculate. It is a gelatinous secretion from the seminal vesicles. Some men have more than others and usually unless they are causing pain during ejaculation are not really anything to worry about. Rarely it can be a sign of testicular cancer, but this is not common. Also, I wanted to say that marijuana has a significant effect on semen. The heavier the usage, the more impact. Pot lowers the semen concentration and significantly lowers the motility ( what % are moving ) and the progression ( how well the sperm are moving.)
I hope this helps you guys. A Seattle Andrologist
