Welcome to e health forum.

The description of the history does not give a complete information. But a attempt to provide a general information is made here.

Semen is usually a cloudy white or grey fluid. Following ejaculation, semen may thicken to a jelly-like consistency. Within 30 minutes, it typically becomes runny and clear.

Normal semen usually had a slight chlorine like smell associated with it.

Presence of a strong fishy or foul smell in the semen is a sign of infection. In such cases, it is advised to consult a doctor who can examine you and do a semen analysis. Prompt treatment with antibiotics may help in treating the condition.
