hi there,semen after being discharged in the female genital tract needs to be liquified or the viscosity has to be reduced so tht the spermatozoa can travel up the female tract to fertilize the ova. Liquifacion is caused due to a prostatic enzyme and deficiency of this enzyme or of some micronutrients like Zinc can cause delayed liquifaction.As the first sample you had given must have been after a period of abstenence and unduly viscous it took time for liquifaction while the second sample had no such problem. Do not worry unduly about it as it can be corrected with medications and use of multivit. supplemensts like zinc, magnesium, selenium, lycopene, and B-complex vitamins especially B6 .As there is no other abnormality found it should be easy to rectify increased liquifaction time take care
