Hello XXXXXXX

Thanks for posting your query.

Semen can drip down the legs only when there is an erection or masturbation. It will not drip down when there is no erection and you are not masturbating.

Since you are having an OCD about semen, hence you are worried about semen soiling the socks and the hands. According to the Expert Consensus Guidelines for the Treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder, behavioral therapy (BT), cognitive therapy (CT) and medications are the treatment options followed .

You are already taking Seroquel and Lexapro. In addition, you can get selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) prescribed from your doctor. These include Citalopram (Celexa), Fluoxetine (Prozac) or Sertraline (Zoloft).

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up query.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Hello,

Thanks for writing back.

The odds are extremely small that semen will drip down on its own without an erection/ masturbation and you get it on your hands.
