semen odor

my DH's semen seems to have developed an odor and a funny taste (sorry if TMI), we've been been checked out and all the tests came back negative. I've also noticed that when he ejaculates in me I have an odor that lasts for several days, sometimes up to a week - I got tested and it's not BV. Any ideas what could be causing this and anyway to treat this. He doesn't drink (used to be an alcoholic but hasn't drank for 14 years) and he does smoke.

Re: semen odor

Could be common but I've never heard of a man's semen developing a sudden strange odor. What kind of odor? What is the smell like? Is it foul?

All I can say is healthy, thick, white sperm and semen (because the two are mixed together when ejaculated) has a strong, musty pollen like scent. I have heard the taste can be a somewhat strong metallic type taste.

It sounds unusual that the odor stays with you for several days. I have always heard that the body absorbs the sperm/semen and I don't see how an odor from it could stay on or in your body for that long... Not that it couldn't though.

Strange.

Someone can tell you, a doctor or someone. Best of luck in your quest to find the origin of this odor.
