Hello, I have a question here. I am almost 16 years old and when I masturbate, almost never sperm comes out, and when it does, it is only a small ammount of it. I am starting to get real worried by now...
Thank you

The amount of semen you produce can't tell you anything about how much sperm is in that semen. And often when guys say they only ejaculate a small amount, they are comparing that amount to things like what they see in porn (not having often seen other guys ejaculate in real life), where I assure you, the amounts often seen sometimes aren't even real.

Regardless, even ejaculate in small amounts often contains as much sperm as is needed to create a pregnancy.

Ejaculation is related to orgasm, but not all orgasms result in ejaculation. And as well, sometimes not ejaculating is just about having orgasms -- if you are reaching orgasm in the first place, you may not be -- that aren't all that, if you know what I mean. Too, this can also be about your age, especially if you were not a very early bloomer with puberty: some young men can't even ejaculate at all until their late teens.

By all means, if you are deeply concerned about this, this is something you can ask your doctor about. But at this time, I'm not concerned based on what you've said and your age.

If your orgasms are really mild, or you weren't that aroused throughout, that can have some impact on if or how much you ejaculate.
