Semen discharge w/o arousal
An_251037 posted:
Lately I am noticing a small to moderate amount of semen in my underwear without any arousal/sexual thoughts. I am pretty sure it is semen in that it does not have a purulent type smell and well looks, feels and smells like my semen. It seems to happen after I use the bathroom (#2). This has happened thrice now over the last two weeks. I am in my mid 30's, sexually active with one partner, not taking any drugs and have not regularly masturbated in almost 4 months. Oh, and have been under some emotional stress lately. Is this normal? Should I seek medical attention?
stevesmw responded:
A bowel movement can stimulate your prostate which will cause some ejaculate to come out of your penis. I am a lot older than you and have a very enlarged prostate and this happens to me almost every time I have a bowel movement.

Unless you are having regular sex, masturbation may help with this issue.

Thanks for you response stevesmw . Should I be concerned that my prostate may be enlarged? I mean this quite weird and somewhat uncomfortable for me.
stevesmw replied to Twyce1222's response:
You are too young to be having an elarged prostate. It could be irritated for some reason. If you have health insurance, you could get it checked. If it were me I would masturbate for a few days and see if the probem went away. My opinion is that your body manufactures semen and it should have an outlet.
stevesmw replied to Twyce1222's response:
When I was 27 or 28 I was in the Air Force. I had just spent three days in Bangkok and I had symptoms similar to yours. I thought I might have picked up VD and got checked out. The doctor ran tests and I had no infection. He said that going from a lot of sexual activity to none could cause this and recommended masturbation. I didn't know if I believed him 100% but I followed his medical advice.
