semen has many substance in it
when it come in contact with outer environment
they undergo changes due to oxidation
so stain of semen look hard and of alter color
wash it with detergent as early as u can

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?
