Normal time for Semen
time : Normally semen coagulation takes place 20 to 30 minutes following
of semen more than 1 hour after ejaculation may indicate disorders of
accessory gland function. Diagnosis of the liquefaction problem should be
made if there is absence of sperm in the PCT( Post-Coital Test ) . PCT
PostCoital Test should be done to access the clinical importance of
Delayed Seminal Liquefaction. PCT function report is normal then no
further treatment of Delayed Liquefaction is needed. If sperm are capable
of reaching the cervical mucus, problems of semen liquefaction are not
clinically relevant. Increased semen viscosity, which is unrelated to the
coagulation-liquefaction phenomenon, signifies a disorder of accessory
gland function and may effect the accuracy of assessment of both sperm
density and motility. It is only clinically relevant when there are very
few sperm in the post coital test.
Post-Coital Test PCT
Split Ejaculate Analysis should be performed. Semen that fails to liquefy
suggests prostatic dysfunction.
Proteolytic enzymes (or
present in prostatic secretions cause liquefaction of the protein coagulum
derived from the seminal vesicles. In split ejaculation, one of two
fraction found normal liquefaction and normal sperm parameter, good chance
Treatment with Homeopathic medicine corrects delayed semen liquefaction
normal within 2 to 3 month if other parameter are normal, if abnormal than
it will take 2 more month time.
