Excerpt from book:
CHAPTER II. Quantitative Changes In The Semen. The physiological characters of the semen having been described in the preceding chapter, the pathological changes to which it is liable have next to be considered. These changes may be quantitative or qualitative. Polyspermia, or the emission of an abnormally large quantity of fluid is, as may be gathered from the remarks in the preceding chapter, not easy to define exactly. Of course, in such a well-marked instance as that recorded by Ultzmann, in which the quantity measured 35 grammes, there could be no doubt about the excess. The patient was a very nervous excitable man, butexamination of the sexual organs revealed nothing abnormal. Such cases are probably rare, and not of much practical importance. Ultzmann states that in polyspermia the excess is due to increase of the liquid portion, and that there is no actual increase in the cell elements or zoosperms. Thus polyspermia suggests over-secretion, either by the prostate or seminal vesicles or urethral glands or all of them and probably due to nervous influence. OligOSpermia, or the emission of semen in abnormally small quantity is, like polyspermia and for the same reason, difficult or impossible to define exactly. The condition is natural in old age, and occurs temporarily after sexual excess, and also in certain debilitating diseases. As the semen is composed of several secretions it will, of course, be diminished in proportion if one or other ofits constituents be absent. If the zoosperms only are wanting, the quantity of emitted fluid may not be markedly affected, but if the prostatic fluid and the secretion of the seminal vesicles be from any cause excluded, the fluid emitted may be so scanty that such cases are often included under aspermia. The diagnosis will d...
