I've noticed lately that my cum has been Yellow and clumpy. I don't know why. I'm not a sexually active person I've only had sex once and that was a long time ago. Any thoughts as to why?
It's hard to say why..sometimes it just is. As you get older, your cum changes from clear to white to (light) yellow.
My experience is that the longer between ejaculations the thicker the cum and the more pronounced the white colour is.
Other people have said that it is quite normal for it to turn slighly yellow if it has been a long time since last ejaculating. I don't ever remember mime being yellow but the most I've ever gone between ejaculations is three days so perhaps it happens at more like a week.
So, if that could be the answer then try ejaculating more frequently to see if the colour goes back to white and the consistency back to more creamy. If so you have nothing to worry about.
The actual sperm in an ejaculation is often yellowish and jelly like in consistency. Usually you'll notice more of it if there has been some time between ejaculations.
could be due to slight dehydration. If you've been on a bit of a bender recently or just not drinking enough water, it can noticably affect the ejaculate.

That has been my experience. My cum is normally white if I ejaculate like everyday, but if I don't cum for like a week or more, it turns more yellowish.
I don't agree with lance's theory that its caused by more sperm in the semen. While there is much more sperm in semen the longer you go between ejaculations, you can't see the sperm or their color with the naked eye. Also, the fluid secreted by the seminal vesicles tends to be more yellowish. My theory is that the longer you go without ejaculating, the greater the mix of seminal vesicle fluid versus prostate fluid, and thus the color tint changes to more yellowish. Just a theory though - lance could still be correct.

I believe the color is all relative to what you compare it too.
For instance if you compare it to your skin it may look white-ish - but if you compare it to porcelain, like bathroom fixture that is white, it appears to be a bit yellow.
Don't be fouled with the color
White or yellow
