Is Semen Always White?

Common Semen Colors

 

Semen is white...usually.  It's not uncommon to see other colors in male ejaculate.  From clear, red or pink, yellow, and even green or brown can show up once in a while.  Most colors are completely harmless and nothing to worry about.

 

"Why Is Male Ejaculate Usually White?"

 

A man's cum is white because of proteins.  Semen is comprised of sperm cells in a formula of liquids from different glands in the body, which includes sugars and proteins to 'feed' the sperm as they try to make a long difficult journey up to the egg.

 

While some people might believe that semen is white due to sperm cells, this is not true.

 

 


 

Red or Pink in Semen - Blood

 

One of the more common colors to appear in semen is red (or pink) from blood.  Obviously this can be very alarming when found in ejaculate, but most often it's not a major problem.  It's never a bad idea to speak with a doctor if you find red or pink in your semen, but many times the source of the blood will be harmless.

 

The primary reason for blood in semen is that occasionally a very small blood vessel in a man's prostate can rupture, which causes a small amount of blood to leak into the ejaculate.  This can appear as a light pink hue or even a small bright red spot in semen.

 

It's also not uncommon for a small amount of blood to be seen after a man has a vasectomy.  Again, while this is usually not a cause for major concern, if it persists you should definitely see your physician.

 

 

Other Colors - Clear, Yellow, Green, Brown, etc...

 

The other most common colors seen in semen would probably be clear and yellow.  Neither are usually problematic - as long as they aren't consistently appearing through many ejaculations.

 

Brown semen can occasionally be caused from 'dried' blood that has been in the glands for a long time.  Green and yellow can be the product ofeating certain foods.  Beets, as well as other foods, can tint semen lightly.

 

Of importance - if any colors are regularly appearing in your ejaculate, or appear with a different (bad) odor with the semen, you might find that you've got an infection.  Be smart with your judgment - you know your body better than anyone else.  If you suspect something is not right with your semen, you should definitely make an appointment to go see a physician.
