Semen quantity and fertility related?

I generally produce a low quantity of ejaculate, I'm just wondering if there is a correlation between quality and quantity

Also, my quantity is unpredictable. Sometimes I'll hold off for 3-4 days and then there is just a trickle. The other morning I came twice at night, very small amount, then when we had sex in the morning, there was heaps!

Cheers..

Re: Semen quantity and fertility related?

there is no relationship between ejaculate volume, and fertility, that I am aware of.

Re: Semen quantity and fertility related?

It is possible that a low ejaculate could be related to reduced sperm count...at least, I think. However, that theory is blown out of the water when you realize it takes just one of those spesky little devils to get someone pregnant. Have you mentioned this to your doctor?

No, I think Tommy's right. There's no relation. It's more likely related to how much liquid you've had to drink and how often you've ejaculated. To be sure, frequent ejaculation will reduce the number of viable sperm in that particular sample of ejaculate but that doesn't mean anything about overall fertility.
