Cowper's Glands

Updated: JANUARY 23, 2015

Cowper’s glands are a part of the male reproductive anatomy, which, when aroused, produce a clear, viscous, salty liquid called pre-ejaculate. The two glands, each about the size of a pea, are located under the prostate gland.

Cowper’s glands may also be referred to as bulbourethral glands.

More About Cowper's Glands

Cowper’s glands secrete the pre-ejaculate fluid that helps neutralize the environment of the urethra, making it a more hospitable environment for sperm travel. Although there is no sperm in the pre-ejaculate fluid, sperm left in the urethral bulb from previous ejaculation can be picked up in the pre-ejaculate fluid and carried out.
