Hi, I recently masturbated and it had been about 5 days since I had last done so, but when I finished off this time my ejaculate was quite yellow, is there any reason why it was or is there something I should get checked out? I've never had sexual relations with anyone so it's not an STD or anything like that I'm sure.
It usually has a yellowish tinge, which is especially noticeable if you have it on a white tissue or something like that.
The relative amounts of the various components that go to make up what is ejaculated can vary - I wouldn't worry about it.
It's normal for semen to have a slight yellow color to it. Sometimes that indicates a high concentration of sperm, which is one of the reasons you may notice it more yellowish if you haven't ejaculated in a while (sperm concentrations are higher the less frequently you ejaculate).
If it is very yellow like urine, or like the color of a sunflower, that may be a different issue though.
