Semen consistency refers to the consistency of semen after liquefaction, which can be observed by the glass rod pulling mucus method and the semen viscometer method. The mucus filament length is 3 to 5 cm, or 0.5 ml of semen is passed through a specific viscometer for less than 2 min (median 50 s). If the viscosity is reduced, it is seen in the absence of congenital seminal vesicles or the outflow of seminal fluid. The lack of liquefaction of semen can inhibit sperm motility and affect fertility.

Basic Information

Specialist classification: male examination check classification: semen and prostatic fluid examination

Applicable gender: whether the male is fasting: not fasting

Tips: Specimen collection is the most important level. The subject should be abstinent for 3 to 7 days before the examination. Normal value

Glue-like.

Clinical significance

Abnormal results:

If the newly discharged semen is in the form of rice soup, it may be caused by obstruction of congenital non-sperm sac or seminal fluid outflow tubing. The semen is thin and the viscosity is reduced. It can also be seen when the sperm density is too low or there is no sperm.

People who need to be tested:

Less refined, blood fine, seminal vesicle pain, infertility and so on.

Precautions

Before collection: Specimen collection is the most important level. The subject should be abstinent for 3 to 7 days before the examination.

When collecting: collecting semen with masturbation is better, it is forbidden to use sexual intercourse to interrupt collection (due to loss of a part of semen); can not be sampled with condom (talc powder in condom can affect sperm motility). The semen should be left in a clean and dry container. The semen should be kept at 25~35°C immediately after collection (<25°C or >35°C. After 2 hours, the sperm's activity will be affected) . It is best to place the specimen in a close-fitting underwear pocket during winter inspections.

Not suitable for the crowd: no.

Inspection process

The glass stick was used to lift the mucus method and the semen viscometer method for observation.

Not suitable for the crowd

There are no taboos.
