Fructose, Semen


Fructose is produced in humans mainly by the seminal vesicles with a small contribution from the ampulla of the ductus deferens and is essential for spermatozoa metabolism and motility as an energy source.


In a patient with a low volume ejaculate, the absence of fructose indicates ejaculatory duct obstruction, seminal vesicle dysfunction or hypoplasia.
