... in response to Increasing Semen Volume
  1. Azusa Cha Azusa Cha Canada says:

    The journal articles you cited DO NOT support what you're saying in your comment.

    You got things mixed up. The studies you cited have nothing to do with semen VOLUME. They are studies on sperm mobility, and sperm count.

    SPERM COUNT and SPERM VOLUME are not the same thing. These studies are saying that certain supplements may make sperm healthier (i.e. live longer in the vag, and swim better). These studies are also saying sperm count increases...that means if you take 1ml of semen, the sperm count goes from 1 million sperm to 5 million sperm. But it says absolutely nothing about the amount of sperm you ejaculate.

    Thanks for trying though.

      Actually the first two links state specifically 'semen volume' not 'sperm volume'. The second two links speak of 'seminal parameters' which include semen volume. Your last sentence is very confusing because you state that it says nothing about the amount of sperm you ejaculate but if you ejaculate 3 ml of semen with a sperm count of 1 million you have ejaculated 3 million sperm but if you ejaculate the same 3 ml of semen with a sperm count of 5 million then you have ejaculated 15 million sperm. Hence the higher your sperm count the more sperm you ejaculate given your semen volume does not drop. Finally can your clarify on your term "sperm volume" because none of the studies or any one else here was speaking of sperm volume. If I had to guess it would have to refer to the volume, that's size for the layman, of the individual sperm cell.

        I think he is saying that volume pills do not increase the number of swimmers in your ejaculation...the pills found on Amazon and health food stores certainly do increase the amount of ejaculation that is shot from your penis during orgasm, there is no legitimate argument against that fact.

      Not sure I'd thank her. It's because these so called medical professionals go around parading their supposed knowledge that a lot of people are mislead, misdiagnosed and end up worse off than if they'd done nothing.
