What is Hematospermia?
Hematospermia refers to the presence of blood or red-discoloration of semen or ejaculate (fluid that contains sperm also known as “cum”. The fluid is produced after an orgasm in men.) Blood in semen is relatively uncommon. It is usually a symptom of an underlying urological condition and should not be ignored.
What are the Causes of Bloody Semen?
The causes of blood in semen depend on man’s age. Common causes of hematospermia include:
- Infection (Sexually transmitted infection or urinary tract infection)
- Enlarged prostate or BPH
- Prostate Cancer
- A side effect of prostate biopsy
