Why does a sticky transparent liquid come out while passing stools?
Q: I am a 21 years old man and a sticky white liquid comes out from my penis whenever I strain myself to pass stools. It seems to me as semen and it happens every day whenever I pass stools. If it is semen, will it be harmful for me? Sometimes the liquid is transparent and sometimes it is white in colour with a constituency similar to semen. Please advise.
A:The clear transparent liquid and occasionally semen like fluid on straining in the morning is quite normal. These are the secretions coming from seminal vesicles and prostate. Both these organs are placed just in front of the rectum and sometimes straining to pass stool expresses the stored secretions in these organs. Seminal vesicle secretion is clear transparent liquid. It constitutes approximately 70% of the normal constituents of ejaculate.
Contrary to the popular belief, regular ejaculation of semen does not lead to any weakness or problem.
