Semen in SpoonIt's a widely known fact that the height of male virility begins its downward trend once men reach a certain stage of life, usually beginning at around the age of 35. Generally the change in hormone levels that accompanies aging causes fluctuations in the volume of semen that is produced during ejaculation. While it is completely normal for the amount of semen to diminish with age, it can make men question just how low their semen levels have become and if there's any way to naturally increase them.

Average Semen Levels

So what is considered to be a normal amount of semen produced during ejaculation? This can vary widely from one man to the next but usually averages anywhere from .1 ml to 10 ml. To compare, a teaspoon holds about 5 milliliters of fluid and a tablespoon can hold 15 milliliters. Keep in mind that semen volume generally increases as the time between successive ejaculations lengthens.

Reasons for Low Semen Output

As already mentioned, once men reach a certain age they become less virile then they were in younger years when semen production and sperm count were at their peak. The changes that occur to the body mean that semen will not be produced in the same quantities as during youth. This is largely due to changes to the prostate and surrounding glands. Unfortunately this can lead to poor ejaculations and have a negative impact on the quality of sexual activity.

Frequent Ejaculation

Another possible reason for decreased semen production is when men ejaculate too frequently. The amount of semen volume available is affected by the length of time that passes between ejaculations - generally the longer the time period, the greater the volume. As you get older the seminal vesicles and testes need more time to produce semen, in some instances taking up to several days to completely restore ejaculatory volume. Periodically abstaining from sexual intercourse and masturbation will allow the body adequate time to replenish semen volume.

Dehydration

Another contributing factor to low semen production is related to the amount of liquids you consume on a daily basis. Since semen is a fluid secretion, the amount that is available is impacted directly by how well hydrated you are. Obviously the type of liquid ingested is of high importance - water is excellent for hydration whereas fluids like alcohol can actually increase dehydration and lower semen production.

High Estrogen/Fat Levels

Estrogen is a fat-storing hormone that is usually associated with women but is also present in men in small amounts. While this hormone is necessary in men to perform certain biological functions like regulating libido, when elevated it can have negative effects such as lowering testosterone levels, decreasing sexual function and even enlarging the prostate. Estrogen increases in the presence of body fat, so men who are overweight tend to have elevated levels which alters the natural hormonal balance and consequently reduces ejaculatory volume.

Ways to Increase Semen Production

Some safe and natural ways for men to produce greater amounts of semen and improve sexual performance include:

  • Abstain from sex periodically to increase semen reserves
  • Have sex earlier in the day (sperm count is generally at its highest in the morning and afternoon)
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Lower body fat levels
  • Use semen volumizing supplements*

*Semen volumizers are often used by male porn stars to help them produce larger amounts of ejaculate more frequently. These enhancement supplements usually contain ingredients such as L-Arginine, Zinc, Omega 3 Fatty Acids and specific Bioflavonoids that can help improve semen quality, boost virility and increase semen volume.

Having low levels of semen is something that many men may experience, especially during the natural aging process. If you're not satisfied with the volume of semen you produce then hopefully some of these tips will improve your semen output and help you increase the overall volume of your ejaculations.
