semen has many substance in it
when it come in contact with outer environment
they undergo changes due to oxidation

I have noticed my semen is orange in color presumably due to blood and I have also noticed blood in my stool, I went to a doctor about the semen he wrote it off saying it was a small disruption and should go away soon and its common but then I started seeing blood in my stool?

I have a question about my boyfriend. I noticed that when his cum dries it is yellowish/orange and basically crystalizes! Honestly before it dries I don t really know what color it is, but his semen does have a unique odor... I just figured everyone was different and diet may play a part. I just want to be sure there is nothing wrong. He doesn t have any pain or discomfort in his scrotum, but he only has one testicle. When he was a teen (around 14) he had his other one removed because the tendon wasn t long enough to allow it to drop properly. I was wondering if there is anything wrong or if this will effect his potential fertility?

Semen has been browninsh-red, occasionally with what look like black specks in it, for the past month. I have some non-specificy groin pain I associate with a musle pull or pulls, and some hernia like discomfort when I sneeze. Running also causes some pain, but not severe. Ejaculation is not painful, but not as pleasureable at it ought to be either. My doctor gave me anti-biotics i finished taking this past week, and so I m wondering if there is a time frame during which my body will expel the discolored stuff and return to the usual white color. Thanks.
