Brief Answer: Nothing to worry about Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for posting your concern at XXXXXXX I can understand your concern but i must tell you that masturbation has no effect at all on semen quality (Semen quality is a measure of the ability of semen to accomplish fertilization). So your previous activities would have no bearing on your current situation. However, regular masturbation does lower sperm count because the entire process of spermatogenesis takes 74 days, therefore with regular masturbation you will be releasing sperms regularly in the ejaculate and because of this sperm count can decrease but this is reversible and once you stop masturbating your sperm count will recover. Semen can change in consistency, volume and color on a day to day basis and in no way indicates what your sperm count is, or how fertile you are. If you are dehydrated, the reduced water content of your semen can also make it more jelly-like in texture. The consistency is down to two enzymes. The first, produced in the seminal vesicles, decides how thick it will be. The second (PSA) comes from the prostate gland and is designed to turn the semen into a runny liquid a few minutes after ejaculation. Variations in the amounts of these two enzymes present in your semen will decide how runny it is. You have nothing to worry about. There is no need for any food or medicine to be good in bed if you have no problem. Your weight is a bit on the higher side for your height but i think that it is not an issue in your sexual life. I would advice that you focus on your marriage preparations and believe in yourselves that you are fine. take care regards

Brief Answer: Happy Married Life Detailed Answer: Hi. First of all, i want to congratulate for your upcoming marriage. Your penis size is absolutely normal to lead a good sexual life. A pleasurable sexual life is very essential for both the partners. I would say that sex is not just about intercourse between the two individuals but a lot more like caressing, cuddling, admiring each other etc before finally culminating into intercourse. This will also help you both understand each others bodies better. It should not be just a selfish act of ejaculating by a male where you are just concerned about your own pleasure, but instead an enjoyable act for both of you. In short, it should be preceded by a good foreplay. All the best for you married life. Wish you a very happy married life!! take care regards
