Product Code: SP/SFT/PH-002

Seminal plasma is the combination of body fluids secreted by seminal vesicle (contributing 2/3rd by volume, pH 8.2 – 8.6) and prostate glands (1/3rd by volume, pH 6.8 – 7.2).

Assessment of Semen pH

  • Semen pH more than 8.0 is indicative of acute Prostatitis, Vaculities or Bilateral Epididymitis. Whereas, pH value generally less than 7.2 is indicative of chronic prostatitis.

  • Lower semen volume, with pH value less than 7.2 is often due to deficiency in seminal vesicle fluid.

  • Lower semen volume, with higher pH value above 9.0 is often due to pathology of the prostate gland.

  • Incubation of semen for a longer time results into higher pH (above 8.6) and is caused by breakdown of amines & amides.

  • Initial fraction loss during semen collection may also result into higher pH value above 8.6.
