Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,a low amount of semen can be cause by a prostate infection such as prostatitis, retrograde ejaculation,Benign prostate enlargement, ejaculatory duct obstruction, or low testosterone levels.

You will need a physical checkup. A rectal examination will help to diagnose a benign enlargement of the prostate.

Then you will need a lab examination of the semen and urine to rule out infection,serum testosterone levels.. An ultrasound will also be necessary.

See your regular doctor or get a referral to Urologist for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Is there any medication I can get over the counter if it is a prostate infection ?
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 10 months ago.

Thanks for the follow-up.

Prostatitis is usually treated with antibiotics and other medicines prescribed by your doctor.

However you can try some self care measures if you have pain,discomfort while ejaculation,urination.

Take OTC Motrin.
Try warm sitz bath.

Get plenty of rest, and drink lots of fluids. T
Eat plenty of high-fiber foods, such as fruit, vegetables, and whole-grain breads and cereal to prevent constipation.

Straining to pass a bowel movement may be very painful when your prostate is inflamed, so use a stool softener if needed.
Be physically active. Sitting for long periods of time can make this problem worse. Exercise, especially aerobic exercise, seems to help.

Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and spicy foods such as hot peppers, chili, pickles,
Deep breathing, relaxation, light exercise.

And see a Urologist for further evaluation and management.

Hope this helps.
