Does the colour of the ejaculate indicate that it is too thick?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 05/06/2021

The colour of the ejaculate can be helpful when analysing semen quality. A very transparent semen colour may indicate low sperm concentration and/or a more watery or liquid consistency.

Conversely, a deep white colour may indicate a higher sperm concentration.
