Hi ladies,

My DH & I have been activly TTC for about 3 months now. I've never payed much attention before to his semen but this evening when I went to clean up right after I wiped & I noticed it looked like little rubber balls of glue, you know kinda what rubber cement glue looks like (sry it it's TMI). Has anyone ever had this happen to them before? I didn't know if this could be a hindrance to us getting pregnant? I'm scheduling an appointment for him to have his semen checked in 2 wks.  Thanks for any advice or thoughts!

I know exactly what you are describing. My DHs has done the same thing. My DHs first SA was labeled "high viscosity" but the urologist said drink more water, take mucinex, and we will repeat SA. He gets his next one when I start AF. Idk if this "rubber cement" look is this or what :)

Good luck!

Try getting him to drink more. He might just be dehydrated.

Thanks ladies. I searched it online a few min's ago & some people are saying dehydration as well...His job requires working outside all day & usually he's so busy he doesn't stay hydrated.  I've also been slowly breaking him of all the soda...he used to drink a 12 pack in a day now he's onto sweet tea :( I'll try and push the water & once he finds out that this could possibly hinder us getting pregers he'll hopefully jump on the idea of more water bc we've only given ourselves 2 years to ttc and if it doesn't happen we're done!

 This happened with us once so I researched it.  What I found was to drink more water.  That it is normal for it to happen occassionally so not to be worried.  I also read from men...that they have gooten their gals pregnant even during the times when it was like this...so I would say that it shouldn't be something that would keep you from conceiving.

It doesn't sound normal. I think getting it checked will be your best bet.

my DH gets that and it is from dehydration. tell him to try to drink atleast 64oz of water a day and while he is outside, to drink extra. you can still get pregnant even with the weird rubber things lol.
