Does sperm having any smell? I felt it have some smell. I am not sure is sperm or pre-ejaculate.


Fluids in the body pick up odors from what you eat, so different men’s semen would smell different. Sperm is a component of semen and what a man ejaculates is semen. It is a white to a slightly yellow opaque fluid that is thick and typically has a chlorine-like smell.

Pre-ejaculate fluid is clear, thin, runny, and has no smell.
