User :   Hi, I am 26 year old male. I masturbate like once a week or once every two weeks. Of from late I have noticed that my semen is much more thicker than before. Sometime I practically have to milk it out from my penis. Why is this? Also the longer I dont ejaculate, when I ejaculate the semen has a yellowish tinge! Is this kinda regular??
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   Dr. XXXXXXXX here. let me read what you have typed
User :   Ok Dr.XXX

Doctor :   it is common to have infection introduced while masturbating
Doctor :   you will require to get a semen analysis done to look for pus cells in it
