A watery semen might signal other fertility issues.

A man has a low sperm count when his semen has a small amount of sperm. Low sperm count is caused by infections, tumours, hormonal imbalances and swelling of veins in his testicles.

Sometimes, it is not semen that comes out but pre-ejaculation or precum. Precum is a more clear liquid that typically contains few sperm cells.

A zinc deficiency is not good for your men's sexual health. Certain antibodies fight and reduce sperm cells, zinc supplements help resist these anti-sperm antibodies.

Lifestyle choices like smoking, stress, consuming a lot of carbonated drinks and lack of exercise can affect the quality of your semen.
