Semen is the fluid released through the male urethra during ejaculation. It contains the sperm and fluids from the prostate gland. The consistency of semen is thick which is whitish in colour. But several factors can change the colour and consistency of semen.
Watery semen may also be a sign of low sperm count indicating possible fertility problems. Ejaculating, thin and clear semen may however be a temporary condition with no serious health concerns.
There could be several reasons for watery semen. Some of these are-
1. Low Semen Count
One of the most common causes is low sperm count. A sperm count of fewer than 15 million sperm per ml of semen is considered below normal. Some potential causes of a low count are ejaculation problems, injury within the tubes, tumours and hormonal imbalances.
2. Frequent Ejaculation
Frequent ejaculation may also lead to the production of watery semen. If you masturbate many times in a day, the quality is likely to become thin and watery. You may need at least a few hours to produce a normal and healthy amount.
3. Zinc Deficiency
Another possible cause is zinc deficiency. Research states that men who have sufficient levels of zinc can combat the effects of anti-sperm antibodies. These are produced by the immune system commonly mistaken as a foreign body.
If the semen appears watery, it is important to note if some colour is present or if it is clear. Very clear semen may be pre-ejaculation fluid released during foreplay containing only a few sperms.

If you notice that the semen is continuously watery or discoloured, tell your doctor or see a urologist. If you and your partner have been unsuccessful to conceive, consult a fertility specialist.
In some cases, a change in lifestyle may boost sperm count and improve the quality of the semen. The positive changes majorly include.
- Quit smoking cigarettes.
- Exercise regularly
- Weight loss
- Lowering the alcohol consumption
In such a case, your doctor may also recommend avoiding sexual intercourse for a period of time so that you can ejaculate less frequently. Doing this can help see if it changes the consistency of the semen.
