Semen is commonly a thick, white fluid, but it can vary in color and consistency. Watery semen can occur or happen due to lifestyle factors, low sperm count, and nutritional deficiencies.
What Causes Watery Semen?
A varicocele is a swelling of the veins that pass from the testicles to the scrotum. Varicoceles may not lead to symptoms, but they can decrease sperm production and reduce semen quality in some people. Varicoceles can develop in 1 or both sides.
Varicoceles are very common. According to the Urology Care Foundation, varicoceles affect around 15 per cent of males, and around 40 per cent of males tested for fertility conditions have these issues.
That said, around 80 per cent of people with a varicocele do not have any fertility problems.
2. Frequent ejaculation
Frequent ejaculation may cause watery semen. If a person masturbates or engages in ejaculation multiple times daily, their body may not have much time to produce the same volume or quality of semen.
