Why is my semen yellowish in colour?
Q: I am 30 years old and got married recently. During intercourse, my ejaculate is not white in colour, it is somewhat yellowish. Is this normal? Also, in the mornings I get lower back pain and find it difficult to stand straight and also get pain while walking. gradually the pain reduces. Please advise.
A:While sight pale colour of semen could be normal, association with low back ache warrants further investigations for chronic prostatic infections and any spinal problems. You need a thorough prostatic and spinal examination by an expert, followed by semen examination and x-ray of spine as base line. Further planning to investigate or treat it symptomatically may be done only after the initial examination and investigations have been reviewed.
