Brief Answer:
Hi I think it is not a major problem.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, welcome to healthcaremagic.

I think delayed liquefaction can be due to some infections. So, get a semen culture and sensitivity test done to rule out any infection.
It can also happen due to insufficient sample or inappropriately collected sample. Get a semen analysis done with a gap of 3 to 5 days of abstinence.

You can also take some antibiotic like doxycycline 100mg twice a day for 10 days empirically. Talk to your doctor regarding this.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any other query, I will be happy to help.
Regards

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I think frequent masturbation doesn't seem to affect the semen quality or count but it can lead to sexual dysfunction like ejaculation or erectile dysfunction.

Taking medicine for gastric problem doesn't affect semen viscosity.

Reasons of male infertility are various according to the semen analysis or the sexual problems. It can be due to testicular dysfunction or hypothalamic pituitary disorder. It can be due to some hormonal imbalances, sugar disorders, due to addiction to smoking or drinking.

Male infertility can also occur due to infections or vas deferens problems. There can be erectile dysfunction or ejaculatory dysfunction.

So, male infertility can be due to various factors. Hope I have answered your question. If you have any other query, I will be happy to help.
