What is the difference between sperm and semen?
Semen or seminal fluid is the whitish viscous fluid emitted from the male reproductive tract that contains sperm & liquids (seminal plasma) that help keep them viable. Sperm cells, produced by the testes in humans, represent 2 to 5 percent of semen volume; fluids from tubules, glands, & storage areas of the reproductive system bathe them as they travel down, nourishing them, keeping them motile, or participating in certain chemical reactions. During ejaculation, liquids from the prostate gland & seminal vesicles dilute the sperm & provide a suitable, slightly alkaline environment. An average ejaculation of a human male expels 0.1 to 0.3 cubic inches (2 to 5 ml.), containing 200 to 300 million sperm.
Sperm is the smaller, usually motile male reproductive cell of most organisms that reproduce sexually. Sperm cells are haploid (they have 1/2 the No. of chromosomes as the other cells in the organism's body). Sperm often have at least 1 flagellum. During fertilization, the nucleus of a sperm fuses with the nucleus of the much larger oocyte (the female reproductive cell) to form a new organism. In male animals, sperm are normally produced by the testes in extremely large numbers in order to increase the chances of fertilizing an egg. Motile sperm cells produced by some multicellular protist groups (such as the algae), the bryophyte plants, & the seedless vascular plants, require water to swim to the oocyte. In gymnosperms and angiosperms, sperm do not need water for mobility but are carried to the female reproductive organs in the pollen grain. In the cycads and the gingko (both gymnosperms), the sperm are motile & propel themselves down the pollen tube to reach the egg cell. In the conifers and angiosperms, the sperm are not themselves motile but are conveyed to the ovule by the growing pollen tube.
The human sperm cell is divided into a head that contains the
nucleus, a mid-piece that contains mitochondria to provide energy
for the sperm, & a flagellum that allows the sperm to move.
When fertilization occurs, the nucleus & other contents from
the sperm cells are drawn into the cytoplasm of the oocyte, but the
mitochondria in the sperm are destroyed & do not survive in the
zygote. Since mitochondria contain their own DNA (thought to be a
relic from an existence as separate symbiotic organisms), all of
the mitochrondrial DNA in humans is thus inherited from the female.
The semen produced by the male reproductive tract act as a medium
for sperm typically contains over 100 million sperm cells, all of
which have but one purpose: to fertilize the single available
Nothing semen covers the sperm so that they make it into the vagina safely and it also helps it keep the sperm safe so if any thing happens inside the penis or something the semen is wiped away and not the penis
The count is made if you have enough sperm to fertalise a women, sperm comes out with the semen.
There is no difference between sperm/semen of white boy and black boy just as there is no difference in their blood.
Sperm carries the male DNA, while semen is the fluid that the sperm swim in from the male into the female.
There is no such thing. Sperm are sperm, they do not come in different colours or levels of translucence. The question you may have is the consistency and colour of semen, which is what is ejaculted from the penis. Clear semen may not be semen at all, but pre-seminal fluid which may contain few sperm cells. Seminal fluid is the off-whitish fluid that contains many sperm cells and is the constituent for which conception of… Read More
Yes. The vas deferens are the tubes that carry sperm from the testes to the urethra. The bulbourethral glands make part of the semen that carries the sperm to their destination.
Semen is the slightly off-white fluid that sperm swims in. Sperm are the cells that contain one-half of the male's DNA, which fertilizes the egg or ovum (which contains the other half of DNA from the female which combines to create the offspring). Semen provides nutrients and a watery environment to help the sperm cells remain mobile (or "swim") and to keep alive until the lucky few reach the ovum.
Sperm represents less than 5% of semen so you can't see a difference.
Sperm would be gloopy almost like slime when it comes out pee would be like a regular liquid Sperm is carried in the semen which emits from the penis during sex or masturbation. Semen can be clear in young boys who are masturbating. You do not normally pee at the same time as ejaculating semen so you would know the difference between the two. Also because of the above answer too.
It's the semen that is watery and no it makes no difference.
There is a difference between sperm and semen. Sperm are the cells that carry the genetic material semen is a combination of sperm cells and other fluids. During the process of ejaculation, sperm passes through the ejaculatory ducts and into the urethra, it mixes with fluids produced in the seminal vesicles, the prostate, and the bulbourethral glands to form the semen. These fluids are comprised of hormones, sugar, neutralizer for the urethra, lubricant and even… Read More
It is not sperm, it is just the semen ( a lubricant ). The semen is lacking the sperm.
Semen is the fluid the sperm are in. Sperm are individual cells.
Semen is the fluid the sperm are in. Sperm are the individual cells.
Cum, also called Semen, is composed of mainly sperm and seminal plasma. So yes. ===No=== Semen is not sperm, it is actually the liquid which contains and transports sperm. Sperm compose only about 2% of the average "load" of semen ejaculated.
Yes. The fact that it is emitted while dreaming makes no difference.
Everyone is different. Somewhere between 8 and 16. You will most likely have semen before you have any sperm.
Semen generally contains sperm cells, and it is the sperm cells in the semen that cause pregnancy. However, if the man has had a successful vasectomy or had his testes removed, his semen will not contain sperm cells.
Semen is naturally clear. The white that you see is actually the sperm in the semen. Semen is the carrier of sperm and allows them to travel through the vaginal cavity. When males of age start tobproduce sperm, the sperm is then added to the semen; turning it white. If your ejaculate (semen, sperm, whatever you call it) isn't white, it means that you are not mature enough to produce sperm.
Semen contains sperm, the male reproductive cells. Female discharge is a fluid that doesn't contain any reproductive cells. True but how can you deteremine the difference if you found a fluid?
What is the difference between pre-ejaculate fluid and semen you are not sure that it is semen or pre-ejaculate fluid?
Precum is a lubricant to help in penetration during sex. While there can be sperm in it, the main amount of sperm are in your ejaculate. You generally have to have an orgasam to ejaculate. Pre-ejaculate is a watery clear liquid that comes out first. You can use it as lube. ejaculate is a thick white liquid that comes out last that contains the most sperm.
Yes usually semen have sperm in them.
Semen is the collective of sperm and seminal fluids. Clear semen has very little or no sperm, hence its lack of colour. Semen that has sperm in it, will be white.
You mean 'Semen', not sperm. Sperm are invisible and semen is the liquid that carries sperm cells out of the man's body. Yes, clear semen is normal. So is white, cloudy semen.
There is no pump that turns sperm into semen.
if semen comes out and no sperm that means you are not yet processed and not making sperm yet
These are not particularly similar substances. A serum is a fluid that is used as a medical remedy or antidote, or can also mean the liquid portion of the blood (without the blood cells); semen is seminal fluid, which contains sperm cells and is a substance that a male uses to impregnate a female
Once he has hit puberty he will begin producing semen and eventually sperm. Puberty can begin anywhere between 10 and 16 years old in a boy, sometimes outside this bracket. The semen and sperm will be ejaculated from the penis on climax of sexual stimulation.
Yes sperm and semen are both the same thing.
Seminal fluid is added to the sperm to make semen.
Sperm/ more likely Semen (there is a difference) cannot leak from the bladder, you may be having a wet dream, which is not harmful and perfectly normal.
They come out together. Semen is the fluid that carries sperm cells.
As sperm are to small to be seen with the naked eye , they always flow out with the semen from the penis.
Semen is the clear while sperm is the white. The semen protects the sperm as it enters the vagina
Women don't have sperm.
First, you mean, "Pre semen". (Semen is the whitish fluid that the sperm swim around in). Pre-semen is a slippery lubricant, and also changes the chemistry of the woman's birth canal so that it will not kill the sperm.
Semen comes in many consistencies. There is no way to tell from looking at the semen if it is healthy or not, or if the sperm are viable or not. Sperm is microscopic, and any pathogen in the semen such as a virus or bacteria is also microscopic.
Sperm like having a "pool" of semen in which to swim. They can swim close together but not as freely. However, less semen does not mean less sperm or less powerful swimmers.
The fluids in the semen provide an environment in which sperm are able to swim. Semen also contain nutrients that the moving sperm use as a source of energy. It took me a while to find the answer!
Semen, the fluid that carries sperm out of the body, is not alive. The sperm are the tiny swimmers in the semen that can cause pregnancy, and they are indeed alive for awhile out side the man's body.
Yes- that is in fact the primary way in which you get pregnant. Semen is all you need... It only takes one sperm to ferilize an egg. ---------- Well, you do need an egg to be fertilised by the sperm in the semen. If there is no egg or if there are no sperm in the semen then you won't get pregnant.
A condition where no semen is produced is aspermia, while azoospermia is the lack of sperm cells in the semen.
Nightstarr, you must be concerned; you ask the same questions over and over. Women get pregnant when their egg cell comes in contact with a sperm cell. Semen, the milky fluid that a guy produces, has sperm in it. That's what Semen is-- it's the fluid that contains sperm cells. If the guy puts semen into you, then it's possible for you to get pregnant. Anyone who told you that semen has no sperm in… Read More
Sperm isn't "sticky". Sperm is what is inside of the liquid. The liquid you are probably talking about is Semen. Sperm is little cells in the Semen. No, there isn't a problem if the semen is less "sticky".
Donkey semen is donkey sperm
Semen/sperm will not be present in feces if the semen is ingested orally. Sperm or semen could be present in feces excreted shortly after anal sex if semen was present in the rectum or colon.
Normal sperm count is typically between 20 to 150 million sperm per milliliter of semen. In addition, at least 60 percent of the sperm should have normal motility and shape. However, these values can slightly vary depending on the laboratory that analyzes the semen sample. Low sperm count is one of the leading causes of male infertility. Although low sperm count decreases you and your partners chances of conceiving a child through intercourse, it does… Read More
Semen is a lot more fun to produce ;) But seriously, there are chemical differences. Semen, when mixed with a woman's egg, will most likely result in the conception of a child. Pee, on the other hand, does not have this ability. And semen is the product of sexual arousal/activity where as pee is just waste matter produced from the system cleaning itself. Lastly, both genders produce urine, whereas sperm is something only males can… Read More
No, semen is just the transporter fluid, it's the sperm that gets you pregnant.
The former is no sperm the latter is not much sperm
The prostate produces an alkaline-based liquid that mixes with the semen to coat and nourish the sperm. The prostate does not produce the sperm. This is produced in the testicles, but the prostate liquefies the semen to allow the sperm to move.
