Blood in semen after ejaculation
Posted on: 08/01/2002
I was scared what I realized when I masturbated. When I ejaculated, blood came out along with my sperm. I didn't know what to do. I waited a week and masturbated again, hoping that it was just a one time occurance. Blood once again was ejaculated with my sperm. I'm worried now. Should I consult a doctor? Will this ever go away? PLease advise.
The most common cause of this is a tiny blood vessel inside of the urethra, (where the urine comes out) broke. The second time the "scab" let loose and you got some more blood from the same spot. It is very much like a bloody nose in that regard. It may happen once or twice again until the area heals, just like the bloody nose will "leak" again a couple of times thereafter, when you sneeze or blow your nose. However, if it persists beyond that, then you should see your doc.
