I’m 20 and my boyfriend

is 22. There’s something

strange about his sperm. The colour

of normal sperm is off-white, but his

is transparent. Why is this so?

Dr Eve answers:

Don’t judge a man by the

colour or amount of the semen

he produces. Semen looks

different at different times, and it also

depends, for example, on what he

has eaten, when he last ejaculated, or

whether he has an infection.

In any case, you shouldn’t even

be seeing his semen as it should be

caught in a condom.
