A normal amount of semen is 1-6.5 ml per ejaculation. There are many reasons why semen can chance consistency and also the amount. The most common causes are changes in diet, change in exercise, or a change in tightness of clothing around the genitals. Exercising and wearing tight clothing can increase the heat of the scrotum, changing sperm motility. There are lifestyle changes including certain vitamins that can be helpful.

If you are not experiencing any other symptoms, and lifestyle isn't the cause, then you need to see a urologist.
