@leahleafy:  We haven’t had this happen, but I would definitely want to speak to a health care professional about it. Chances are it’s nothing serious, but I would want some reassurance. I hope everything is ok!

That is scary 🙁 Here’s what Dr. Google says:

In men with hematospermia who have not had a recent prostate biopsy or vasectomy, a number of benign and malignant conditions of the male genital system may be the cause. In many situations, no definitive cause is found.

The following conditions have been reported in association with hematospermia:

  • Benign or malignant tumors of the prostate, bladder, testes, or seminal vesicles
  • Infections including, but not limited to,chlamydiaherpescytomegalovirus, and trichomoniasis
  • Inflammation of the prostate (prostatitis), epididymis (epididymitis), or urethra (urethritis)
  • Calculi (stones similar to kidney stones) in the seminal vesicles or prostate
  • Polyps in the urethra
  • Ejaculation duct obstructions
  • Metastatic cancers (that have spread from other sites in the body) located in the genitourinary system
  • Cysts, hemorrhage, or other abnormalities in the seminal vesicles

Sounds like this warrants a trip to the doctor!

Have not experienced this but sounds like he should get that checked out.

Blood in the semen is definitely reason to make an appointment to talk with a doctor.

@Cory_loves_this_girl:  This is why I avoid Dr. Google! Even the symptoms of your run-of-the-mill UTI can lead you to kidney failure or tumor.

@PermaStudent:  I try to avoid it, but I’d definitely be looking it up if my DH had blood in his semen!

@Cory_loves_this_girl:  In this case, I would look too, despite knowing it is generally a terrible idea!

@leahleafy:  According to Mayo Clinic:

“Blood in semen (hematospermia) can be frightening, but the vast majority of time, it’s not cause for serious concern. Blood in semen is uncommon, and, most often, it goes away on its own”

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/blood-in-semen/MY01214

I’d still contact a doctor.. better to be safe than sorry!

@leahleafy:  I used to work for a urologist, he should get it checked out by a urologist ASAP. He may have damaged something and not getting treatment may render him infertile.

A urologist visit sounds like a good idea.

My SO had blood in his semen for most of his life. The doctors said it was nothing. After dating for a good year and a half it stopped and then a few months later returned for a short period of time. He hasn’t had blood in his semen for probably 2 years now. They never figured out what it was about. It never pained him and it didn’t bother me so we just went on with business as usual.

Is there blood in his urine also? Either way please have it checked out. Yes it could be nothing. It could also be a big deal. I’m an RN. It’s never normal to have blood in the semen or urine.
