You probably could not resist the temptation once and took a ruler to measure your dignity. No one will blame you for this. However, you hardly know the volume of sperm ejected by your body. It is foolish to measure it, but it is still useful to know about that.
Many guys begin to worry about their health after watching the rivers of sperm spewed by actors in the adult films. According to the World Health Organization, the average ejaculate volume is 3.7 ml (about three-quarters of a teaspoon).
Even if you get a little less, it is not a cause for concern. But if the volume is 1.5 ml or less (that is, less than a third of a teaspoon), you should think about visiting a doctor as this situation may indicate some diseases that cause a decrease in the amount of ejected sperm.
Is Small Amount of Seed a Guarantee of Problems?
Just like the ability to erect, the volume of ejaculate decreases with age. So if you see a gradual decrease of ejected seed over 10 years, that is normal. Some men notice these changes between the ages of 20 and 40. The dramatic change in ejaculate volume is much bigger cause for concern. It could be a symptom of something more serious.
What Causes Decrease in Seed Volume?
Several diseases can cause this effect. Hypogonadism is the most famous. In addition to erection problems, it can cause a decrease in the volume of sperm produced. Other symptoms of hypogonadism include fatigue, weakness, and concentration problems.
Diabetes also causes problems with the amount of sperm. Constant fluctuations in blood sugar levels cause damage to nerves and blood vessels. As a result, nerve signals come through slowly, which negatively affects the ability to erect and the amount of sperm produced.
A number of neurological problems, such as multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injuries, can also lead to decreasing of ejaculate volume. It can also be prostate enlargement and taking alpha-blockers. The recent surgery on the abdominal cavity may be another reason. As you can see, there are many reasons. You can hardly figure it out without consulting a doctor.
What to Do if You Think That You Have Less Sperm?
First, don’t worry. As Brazilian scientists recently discovered, men, who are unhappy with the amount of sperm ejected, experience more relationship problems. Make an appointment with an urologist; let them check you for ejaculatory dysfunction.
