Frequently Asked Questions about Semen

Does ejaculation affect testosterone levels?
Ejaculation results in changes in prolactin (increase) and dopamine (temporary decrease), but does not result in changes in testosterone. Although prolactin and dopamine are both involved with testosterone, they do not appear to influence testosterone levels acutely.
Is semen high in protein?
Yes. Semen is 50% protein by weight and contains a variety of nutrients to protect the sperm cells from damages.
