What is the normal PH range for semen PH?
Typically, the semen expelled by men is gray or milky in appearance and opaque. After being placed for a period of time, the semen can liquefy on its own within half an hour, and it is translucent and milky white; however, some men find that the semen occasionally turns yellow. These yellow purulent semen may be caused by seminal vesiculitis or prostatitis. You should be alert to the adverse effects of these inflammations and actively treat them so as not to affect future fertility.
A normal person ejaculates 2 to 6 ml at a time. Average 3.5ml. The amount of one ejaculation is related to the time interval of ejaculation. Therefore, men should not engage in sexual intercourse too much or frequently, otherwise it may cause adverse effects on the body and mind. Only regular sex life is more beneficial to physical and mental health.
The pH of semen should be measured with precision pH test paper or acidity meter, which should be completed within 1 hour after ejaculation. The normal pH range is 7.2 to 7.8.
1. pH<7.0, with oligospermia, often reflects blockage of the vas deferens, congenital absence of seminal vesicles or epididymal lesions.
2. pH>7.8, commonly seen in acute prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis or epididymitis.
