User :   Hello,
My wife and I are trying to conceive a child and she thinks my sperm ios not thick enough and she says it seems to drip out of her. Is there anything I can eat, do, or drink to make it thicker so it will stay inside longer?
Doctor :   HI
Doctor :   May I know your age?
User :   Yes it is 39
Doctor :   Its normal to have some amount of semen dripling down the vagina after a sexual intercourse.
Doctor :   It should not be a problem in concieving if the uterus is able to retain some amount of the semen within it.
Doctor :   since just one sperm is needed to fertilize an egg and there are millions of sperms per ml of the semen, even if some semen drips out,
Doctor :   there should not be any problem in concieving.
Doctor :   However, I suggest you to get a semen analysis done, which will confirm the status of the sperms.
Doctor :   And the treatment if any will be decided following the test.
Doctor :   You can improve the quanlity of the sperms by following a good health diet, rich in vitamins and minerals.
Doctor :   Restrict alcohol.
Doctor :   and good physical exercises.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
User :   Ok that is what I thought also. Thank you very much for your help in this matter. I had that done recently and my doctor said it was fine. Now she is scared because before he put me on clomid? Which is good for increasing estrogen levels for women but he said now I am fine. Yes I have done all of these things which I will continue to follow.
Doctor :   Do you have any other query?
User :   We have one child now and she thinks it is because he put me on the clomid.
User :   Could that have anything to do with it?
User :   My insurance will not cover that.
Doctor :   Clomid helps in increasing the spermatogenesis and it the thickness of the sperm is not affected by it.
Doctor :   If the sperm analysis has been normal now, you may not have any problem.
User :   Ok thanks. I appreciate your help. Enjoy your day.
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me.
Doctor :   Bye for now.
