ejaculate/semen change

Nov 17, 2002

Was diagnosed HIV+ 2mos ago w/test results cd4=470 &viral load=70,000;developing more baseline tests before considering treatment;doctor figures Ive been infected about 1 yr. Over past yr, other than bouts w/sore throat&swollen tonsils only other symptoms are changes in my semen/ejaculate...reduced volume, color not so white, although this seems to be changing and getting more back to normal. What is causing this, the infection? and should it get back to normal in time?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That seems unusual, unless you had some sort of ongoing additional infection in the urinary or genital tract. Although you don't describe any symptoms suggestive of this kind of process.
