How do you know you have "rather low" amounts? Compared to what?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
compared to what most of my partners give and compared to what i... see on the net. i'm bisexual so.. yeah i'm fairly sure its low
Expert:  MasterDoc replied 7 years ago.
Well obviously the people in porn are in part selected to ejaculate larger than normal amounts. You might find the following link to a reliable site useful:

As it notes, you would need to have less than 1.5 ml to be abnormal. And coming often means the volume will be less. Regarding the jelly-like congealed pieces, you will note that:
"It is quite normal for semen to form jelly-like globules and this does not indicate any health or fertility problem"

Read that article in detail. Failure to initially clot is itself a possible indicator of fertility problems.
