User :   Hi, recently I have noticed a very vague discoloration in my ejaculate. I was kinda nervous about it and I have been sexually inactive for at least 3 weeks. I'd really like a doctor to check this out but how would this procedure go about? Its embarassing in front of a male doctor so I would like to know any details.
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hello
Doctor :   let me read your query
User :   Ok
Doctor :   usually the semen that is ejacualted varies in color from white to a slight opalescent and yellowish
Doctor :   this is normal
User :   Yes its neither but more of a gray
Doctor :   if u feel, that there is an issue, that needs to be addressed, then you can undergo a semen analysis
Doctor :   is there any foul smell in the semen,
User :   Ok, and I'm not sure about the smell just because never thought about it
Doctor :   so in that case, most probably the semen is normal
Doctor :   if u still have doubts, then semen testing after 3 days of no sexual activity will be diagnostic
Doctor :   are u there ?
User :   yes
User :   and thank you for youre answers
Doctor :   You are most welcome
User :   hopefully its all normal then. If i were to have the semen testing would it be by a specialist?
Doctor :   no ur normal doctor can do it for you
User :   ok thank you
Doctor :   take care and bye for now
Doctor :   have a great evening
