Hi, I’ve noticed the colour of my semen has changed recently, from white into a pale rose
Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I’ve seen a doctor using the LIVI app, who referred me to my GP for a urine sample and sperm culture, but my GP said it’s very unlikely I’ll need the latter
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No

Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Did your GP have any comment about this?

Not really

Usually when this is worked up no cause is found

But it can be a sign of a prostate infection, a testicle infection, and very unlikely but int the mix--prostate cancer

I'd do a digital (finger in the rectum) exam to check your prostate and I agree with the urinalysis since if there are white cells there you'd need a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information
