possible prostatitis

Thanks for the query.
Usually liquefaction time of around 30 minutes can be taken as normal.
More than one hour liquefaction time is somewhat abnormal and needs treatment.
The accessory glands like prostate helps in liquefying the semen.
Abnormal liquefaction indicates disorder of the accessory glands. Like infection of the prostate tissue leading to prostatitis.
So once consult XXXXXXX get examined and take treatment for prostatitis. Possibly this will help in decreasing the liquefaction time.
