Hello,

I am new to this forum and I was hoping to get help. I am hoping someone else has had this problem and can direct me. I apologize in advance for how long this message will be, but I am extremely frustrated.

The problem that I am having is my ejaculation smells really strong. It is the point that if I wipe off my ejaculation on a sheet or towel after masturbating, I can smell it across the room. The smell is indescribable but I have done much research and it is not the typical smell of ejaculation. Around the time that my ejaculation smell changed, I also started noticing the consistency was changed. I started having rubbery lumps in it that are yellowish in color. Most research I have done, the suggestions people will give are:

1. Eat pineapple
2. Drink plenty of water
3. Change to a healthier diet
4. Do not smoke or drink caffeine
5. Ejaculation smells bad; there is nothing wrong with you

I want to explain that I know what my ejaculation smells like. I am 28 years old and I have known the smell of my ejaculation all my life. It always had like a bleach smell but the current smell is so strong that I have not had sex for 4 years since this problem began. This is where my problems started; I was with another male for 3 years. He always had a strong smelling ejaculation but I never thought anything of it. I thought perhaps since his body odor was strong, maybe his ejaculation was too. Without being too vulgar, I never had him go inside of me with his genitals and I never ate any ejaculation during oral sex. Right before we split up, he went inside of me for the first time and ever since then my ejaculation has smelled like this.

After this started happening, I was convinced I contracted an STD. I was tested for gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, and several other things. All of the tests that I got were negative. At this point, I started doing a lot of research online and none of the stuff was helpful at all. The reason I did not find it helpful is because all of the things people were suggesting, I was already doing. I drink 5-6 20 ounces of water per day, I only smoked a few cigarettes a day, I do not drink alcohol, I do not eat a lot of high fat meats, my diet consists of a lot of fruits and vegetables, and I only drank one cup of coffee a day. Out of pure desperation, I still tried many of the suggestions that were given online. I knew that the clumps in my ejaculation showed that I may have been dehydrated so I upped my water amount I was consuming (I cannot see how I was dehydrated though, I drank so much water each day). In addition, I started exercising regularly, I stopped smoking all together, I stopped drinking my one cup of coffee a day, I avoided certain vegetables (like asparagus), and I started eating pineapple every single day. At one point, I even fasted for an entire week (only drinking liquids) because I thought maybe it was something that I was eating that was causing this. Nothing helped no matter what I did.

After trying all of these different methods, I went to see a Urologist because I had to get it figured out. I had a non-existent sex life, and it was getting to the point that I did not even want to masturbate because of the smell. After visiting with a Urologist, he gave me an antibiotic to go on for 15 days. The first one was Bactrim but I could not tolerate it. After being on it for 3-4 days, I could not get out of bed. So he switched me to something called Cipro and I was able to tolerate that antibiotic. I took it for 15 days straight and I still noticed that my ejaculation had a serious smell. There are no words to describe how this is because it is such a major insecurity of mine and I cannot have a functional sexual relationship with anyone. Out of all the research I have done, nobody seems to have this exact problem and if they do, it’s because of something simple that is going on.

Is there anybody out there who has had this same problem and found something that worked for them? I have not had sex in 4 years and I am dating someone new and have been for quite some time. I will not have sexual relations out of fear for him smelling my ejaculation. He is probably going to think I have an STD or something is seriously wrong with me. Any advice would be so helpful!!! Before I end this, I would like to give some details just in case someone has some questions about me.
Age: 28
Height: 6’0
Weight: 165
Non-smoker
Non-caffeine drinker

If a doctor happens to read this and they help (I have no idea if they do or don’t, I am new to this forum), I wanted to ask some questions.

1. Could this be because of yeast? Can men get yeast infections too? If so, is there anything I can do to purge the yeast from my body? I did fast, so I do not think this is the cause of the problem, but I am willing to try anything.

2. Are there any other antibiotics that have been known to help with this?

3. Could I not be absorbing the water I am drinking? Maybe this is why the consistency and smell of my semen has changed. It is strange that I have “yellow clumps” in my semen but I am drinking tons of water.

4. Could this be an underlying problem of a more serious condition like prostate cancer? My Urologist stuck his finger up me and said I appeared to be fine. I just am unsure if it could be something more serious.
Any responses would be extremely helpful. Thank you for listening to my story.

  • I have had the exact same problem. I just don't get it. I went to see and Endocrinologist and he was baffled, all blood work came back normal for testosterone levels, even my prostate is fine, no STD's, some friends are saying maybe it's psychological since it only happens when I have sex or masturbation, perhaps a negative mental association...next step will be to see a therapist because it just doesn't add up...I'm just lost here, btw I'm a 31 year old male, 180lbs, 5.11'.
