My hubby was hurt badly as a young teen, in a car/bike accident. His groin was so very swollen and enlarged for months and very painful.

Take the Poll

His sperm looks normal usually but at times is very thick whitish and has gel like pieces. What could this be, if anything?

Thank You

I am wondering the same thing. I have had multiple groin injuries as a child and preteen. I would like any information on this, since me and my fiance are trying to conceive and we already know the problem is not with her.

Depends on the intensity of the injury. Get a semen analysis will quickly answer your questions about sperm production and possible fertility.

I am mentioning an exercise that might help you build stronger reproductive system (excluding the penis):
Sit with spine straight, chest out and shoulders. Contract the anus, breathe in through your nose into your chest, breathe out through your mouth (as slow as you could, slower it is, better it is) and HOLD the OUT-BREATH for as long as you comfortably could (if you possibly could). Repeat this exercise 5-10 times, but don't strain it.
Eat a small meal withing 1 hour after this exercise, consisting of complex carbohydrates(a single slice of brown bread), fats (preferably saturated)(a spoon of butter or olive oil), protein. Also have some multi-vitamin pill to complete the nutritional needs.
This exercise won't work without food because it seems to me that there is an injury to the body part that resulted in such a functional disorder and not vice-versa.
