Discolored Semen
Apr 25, 2004

When I ejaculate my semen comes out yellow in color. I have been suffering from very low libido and am taking 20mg. of Leaxapro as well as a host of other HIV drugs (FUZEON< REYATAZ< ANGENERASE,NORVIR) - when I am able to get involved in at least masturbation my ejaculate is yellow and the semen does not ejaculate but rather oozes out. I do take high potency vitamins which colors the urine. Your opinins and suggestions would be very helpful. I am 53 yrs old and have a Viral load of about 20,000 copies/TCELl 285. Thanks

Response from Dr. Henry

Some vitamins, Reyataz (increase indirect bilirubin) and perhaps some of your other meds could cause your semen to develop a yellow color. There may be other explanations that I am not aware of. In the absence of any infection that usually is not a sign of any serious condition by itself. KH

change meds
