i've noticed that sperm can be thick and sticky, or thin and runny and it also varies in colour...is this an indication to how healthy it is or we are? if so what does healthy sperm look like?

Whether sperm is healthy or not can't be determined by looking at it. Colour can have an affect, but usually the most worrying thing to look out for is blood combined with semen. Quite a few things can determine the health of sperm, ranging from smoking, alcohol and drugs to what kind of underwear you use. If you're worried I'd see a doctor. Only they can tell you whether its normal or not.

There's a good site that gives hints/tips on how to look after yourself, see here (http://menshealth.about.com/cs/stds/a/healthy_sperm.htm)

Well, the viscosity (thickness) of the semen depends on how far in pubery you are. When I first started jerking off, it was a clear color with a hint of white. Now it's a more white color. Healthy sperm should be a nice thick, whitish color.

i usually cum a lot but usually not thick. i think it's because i jo a lot. if i usually hold it for a few days then it gets thicker. that's how it works for me. mine usually isnt thick though...not sure if it has to do with jacking off a lot or just how much i release lol

The older you get, the whiter and thicker your sperm is going to be. It should stay like that.

At your age (if you're a teen, like the site suggests) your sperm is healthy...no matter how it looks.

A cool fact is though that most boys will not begin producing helpful, healthy/operable sperm for two years after they begin to ejaculate.

You can get a girl pregnant at any time after you start producing sperm. As for your first question, we all change at different times. We're all also different, not all of our semen is going to be the same thickness. Don't worry about it, if you're worried see your doctor.

It was just a fact. What I said is that it would be extremely, extremely, extremely rare for a teenager to have fertility problems...it is unheard of. However, most teens are not able to get a girl pregnant for about 2 years after they begin producing sperm since the sperm isn't quite properly matured and the testicles are just getting the hang of producing sperm.

Desolation is a little incorrect about what he said.

well you cant get a girl pregnate til she has hit puberty, nd guyz dont start producing sperm til they start to grow hair thats when nd only when it starts.. but, "Omgthatsme" answer is actually the easier way to maintain healthy semen. U realy dont hav healthy n non-healthy sperm, besidez the blood part.. thats realy un-healthy:/

I was speaking from personal experience. I, myself have fertility problems. Also as I said, you can get a girl pregnant as soon as its first produced. If its alive, it can impregnate someone. Why do you think there are so many younger teenagers becoming fathers at 14 and so on?

Things like unhealthy sperm can be produced by using electronics (like a laptop) that sit on your lap (because of radiation) or by using hot tubs before you reach age 16.

Unhealthy sperm should look the same as healthy sperm to the naked eye. What matters is how it looks under a microscope. Some sperm may have two heads. Sperm basically looks like a tadpole with a long tail under a microscope. Sperm that has two heads would not make it to the uterus/ovary. Imagine swimming with 3 arms, it would probably be a bit harder...In my microscopic experience, I've actually seen sperm with 2 tails...

Deformed sperm NEVER make it to the ovary. As you get older, you naturally begin to produce more unhealthy sperm, but you can get a woman pregnant until you die (but a women stops being capable of having a child sometime in their 50s during menopause.

Again, this is not what I was saying, and as for that reason for infertility, that's not always the reason its damaged or an adequate/true explanation of what it is. Illnesses and health problems come into it as well, its not always self inflicted.

The thing with science is that everything varies.

People impregnating someone at age 14 is uncommon, but not soo uncommon (anymore) since chemicals in our food and etc cause people to enter puberty early. People who produce sperm at age 12 (like I started) could easily impregnate someone by 14...

I shouldn't say teens don't have unhealthy sperm...the truth is everyone actually starts with unhealthy sperm. Some people start with just semen. Unhealthy sperm cannot impregnate anyone...if it all is unhealthy. Keep in mind you can produce 500,000,000 sperm in one ejaculation...so if just one was healthy.......

This doesn't refer to you, Desolation, but these words get confused often...and I think someone did it in this thread.

Semen and Sperm are NOT the same thing. They are generally produced at the same time, however.

Semen: The lube for the sperm. It protects the sperm and kills some of the acid in the vagina for safe travel. Semen can be produced without sperm...like precum (semen). Precum; however, contains trace amounts of sperm and can get someone pregnant...but it's rare.

Sperm: the egg. This is what will get someone pregnant.

Sperm cannot be produced without semen, but semen (like in the case of precum) can be produced without sperm.

To be clear, semen generally houses and protects the sperm and is sometimes said to contain "spermatozoa" which is the reproductive cells, sperm...even though semen, itself, is not sperm.

I was speaking from personal experience. I, myself have fertility problems. Also as I said, you can get a girl pregnant as soon as its first produced. If its alive, it can impregnate someone. Why do you think there are so many younger teenagers becoming fathers at 14 and so on?

Do you have any references to back up this fact? I agree with Aaron on this, unprotected sex would be unwise for any guy that can cum because the risk of pregnancy resulting is going to be there.

Its preposterous to suggest that fertility problems dont affect teenagers, the fact is that most teenagers wouldnt know if they had a problem or not. You generally only find out when you've been trying to get your partner pregnant for a while and it hasnt worked - a situation which few teens are in.

I had to do a paper on it and basically stated what I just stated and the teacher (which was a doctor) stated it was perfect...I don't know of a specific source. I will get the paper and see what I listed as sources.

I'm not going to back out of the answer I provided, but looking at the unhealthy diet of the current generation...I actually wouldn't doubt if fertility problems are more common now than they were 20 years ago in teenagers. This article is legit on this topic (as several other sites confirmed it): http://www.mathimortician.com/2010/03/cola-and-unhealthy-lifestyle-lower.html

It's not just the diet of teenagers either that increase fertility problems. It can be but generalisation doesn't really give full facts. Mine is health related, I have a healthy diet and I did nothing to actually decrease my fertility. Its just how some things are. I'd be interested in seeing the source, from where im standing and I'm in for majoring in biology within the next 2 years I've never heard of a 2 year production period before any male is fertile.

I know the two year fertility is a fact (I just wonder what issues can effect that range...)

I verified it with my doctor (he actually originally said it was 3 years but lowered to two years). I asked my previous health teacher...and I asked another doctor...I'm pretty sure it's valid. I also saw an internet article on it...still checking it out.

I just did a search "teen sperm fertility" and pulled up a long list of porn sites...so...
