The smooth muscles in the whole system respond to noradrenergic α1-stimulation. g. g. phenylpropanolamine, as used against oedema in the nasal mucosa). The adrenergic neurons are inhibited by the cholinergic neurons that stimulate secretion. Thus, during formation of fluid during sexual arousal, emission is partly inhibited. Innervations of secretory cells The secretory cells in the epididymis, the vas deferens, the ampulla, the seminal vesicles, and the prostate are innervated by short, sympathetic, cholinergic neurons releasing acetylcholine.

Approximately corresponding to a total number of 22 × 106 per ejaculate in the study above, had a low (11%) chance of achieving a pregnancy within the next year, whereas men with >5 × 106/ml had a 62% probability of contributing to a pregnancy during the same time frame [25]. A cut-off of 5 × 106/ml was also found in one Danish study [26], while another Danish study advocates a cut-off concentration of 40 × 106 per ml (corresponding to ~170 × 106 spermatozoa per ejaculate). However, the confidence interval for this chosen level was zero to infinity, and the data given allowed the reader to recalculate a cut-off level close to 10 × 106/ml.
