For the past couple years I have had thick, clumpy ejaculate. I have no pain/burning during urination, no odor, and no discoloration. It is just very thick and stringy, almost gel-like. In the past it was not clumpy but a normal liquidy consistency.

My wife gets a sore throat and bumps in the back of hear thoat and tonsils if she swallows my ejaculate. She also gets white streaks in the very back of her throat. These symptoms occur the day after and last for about 2-3 days. This has only started happening to her in the last 6 months or so. Are her symptoms related to whatever is causing the thickness of my semen?

We plan on starting a family in a couple years and I want to know is this normal or something I should be concerned about? What could be causing these symptoms? How can it be treated?

Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.

I don't really understand your 'question' but it does not appear to me that you have mush to worry about.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
