Urology/is it a problem


hi sir
       my age is 27 and I am suffering or better words is I am facing a condition when my semen is very thin like water just  1 year back it was thick and viscous i have good erection but 1 year back I was having semen passed in urine and over time i noticed that my semen and pre cum diminished in thickness and i dont masturbate that much just once or twice a month.
         is it a problem or i became infertile and its a symptom of that i just dont know please show some light on this.

thank you


Variations in semen consistency are quite common and usually are nothing to worry about.  The viscosity and color depends on many factors including medications, hydration status, humidity, ejaculatory frequency, etc. You are not going to become infertile based on a change in the consistency of the semen.  If you are concerned, talk to your primary care physician.
