    When I am sleeping all of a sudden fluid will come up and into my throat. I wake up and run to the bathroom. I am not getting sick to my stomach. Then I have to cough and clear my throat for 1/2 hour or so to get rid of the fluid in my throat/lungs(?). It is stomach fluid (I guess) coming up. This has been happening more frequently since the middle of July. I had radiation 3 years ago to my lower body and am wondering if this could have possibly damaged something and it took this long to show up.

    Hi Im 29 and I have had fluid leaking from my left breast for about 18 months now. I had my prolactin levels checked and they came back normal. I was sent to a breast clinic, I never got a mammogram as they said I was too young to have one, they said the fluid would settle down, however it's got worse and it's happening most days. I'm not pregnant and never have been. Please help. Cheryl.

    Same as mine bro.

    Is constipation normal when you have gone through the menopause? I have had my ovaries and fallopian tubes removed for genetic reasons. I am 46 years old. This is completly abnormal to me as my bowels were always regular pre op. Now I find I have to sit for quite some time to go, if I can at all. I have to mention that I drink 5 pints of water a day to replace fluid that I lose during my 8/10 sweats a night. I am lactose intolerant; can you advise me on what I should do as I think I have a balanced diet. My fluid intake is ok; what am I doing wrong?

    It's called pre-cum (bulboureathral fluid).. This is a normal excretion from the penis mostly before sex, but the penis will continue to seep seminal fluid after ejaculation. Pre-cum (seminal fluid) cleans the urethra before ejaculation so the semen entering your partner is clean of any bacteria. Fret not, as long as it isn't a greenish, sticky fluid, you're probably ok!

    When/before having sex my penus tends to release lot of clear fluid. This is not an STI because me I know both me and my wife only have sex with each other. Is this something I should get help with? It not a fluid that is bad if this makes sense....its the fluid that helps lubricate while making love but I produce to much fluid. Hope this makes sense - it embarassing to ask although my wife doesnt view it as a problem. I have lived with this problem for many years. Many thanks for you advice

    Hi Katie, i also forgot to add to my comment that my tummy also swells around the time of my monthly period. This is due to fluid retention which most women get. The fluid should go at the on set of your period. One can also buy fluid reducing tablets from the chemist which are especially made for this purpose. I take them myself and they do the trick. (don't forget to read the instructions though as they can only be taken at certain times) Hope this helps you. ;-)

    I have a squidgy type lump on what feels like the top of testicle I think is called the Epidermis?. It sometimes goes smaller and feels less fluidy but sometimes it can gather allot of fluid. I sometimes get an ache but its nothing bad. I went the doctors years ago and they detected a fluid around my testicles because one had a squidgy fluid around it casuing it to be bigger.

    My husband has produces no fluid at all when he orgasms. There is a little fluid during foreplay. I would like to have children but am having problems talking to my husband about his lack of fluid as I feel he will be extremely embarrassed about it. Apparently he had an operation on his bladder when he was young and I am wondering if this has something to do with it? also he had a motorbike crash when he was 16 and this resulted in his foreskin being removed and he has a scar running from below his testicles right up. I dont know if this could be a factor too. Any suggestions on how to approach this with my husband? so far, it has caused nothing but rows!

    If your breasts are leaking a fluid that isn't milk, visit your GP, it could be mastitis (if there's fluid), which is nothing serious, and usually goes away on its own with rest and painkillers, but antibiotics are sometimes needed :) It's especially common if you're breastfeeding, but I've had it and never had children.

    hello my name is desta 37,,i have a lump for sometime now,,went to my doctors,they says its binign,she said because she cannot get enough fluid out my breast ,she cant tell me much,,,i wanted to ask if there is another way to get the needle aspiration without so so much pain is there another way for them to get this fluid out and to diognos me finaly,,,please help me get another path,,,,thanks for ur time

    Is this within a few hours after you had sex? If so and If your boyfriend did not put a condom on his penis and he ejaculated inside you, then the white sticky fluid is his semen, obviously. If it's been a few days after you had sex with him, then the fluid might be the result of an infection. Suggest you see a doctormake you stop having sex until you are older. Like 18.

    Ejaculate is a mixture of different glands in your body, so you have different fluids. Usually it is a mixture of a milky white fluid mixed with a clear jell-like fluid.

    hi! on tonights program a surgical procedure for bolstering sagging breasts was soon, it included injecting fluid into the breast. i can't remember the name of the procedure or the fluid itself.

    you have hair, so youäve hit puberty, but most of the weird stuff happens later on. the yellowish fluid is probably just pre-cum, though it could also be thrush.

    i have just recently had an abortion. i was just over 11 weeks. but a week later my nipples started randomly leaking a clear fluid, but wasnt water was more like an oily fluid, would this have anything to do with the abortion? and is it normal?

    When i was 13 i got kicked in the balls very hard twice in a day, it became very hard and it had a build up of fluid I didn't hesitate to see a doctor and it turned out just to be a swelling although the fluid would stay there forever. Like she says "get it checked out asap or you could die"

    Hi Mandy I had my band fitted 2 years ago and have just had the same problem you do need to seek medical assistance and will get no releif until you have some fluid taken out . Ibe brave and have some fluid removed it does not cost to have the removal and if you don't it does not go away alone I am still losing weight and have had to have mine completely emptied ...good luck

    Hi Bobby, What you describe is actually 100% normal. Only a small amount of the fluid expelled during ejaculation is actually sperm. Much of it is actually fluid from the Prostate gland. As the testis can only produce a certain amount of sperm, if you masturbate more often, less semen is ejaculated, and more prostate fluid is expelled. Hence if you masturbate more frequently, your semen will be more liquid, and less frequent, more lumpy. This is absolutely normal, and all males experience this. Hope this helps your issue. Sam

    Hi I am in my 50s my testicles at the moment don't hang like they should ,they seem to be in some type of fluidy type ball. the left one is far bigger than the right one and just into the pubic area ,this is a bit fluid like as well , I have had eppididimus probs in the past with fluid as well could this be related .
