5 Common Beliefs About Penis Size -True or False?

Blood coming from any part of your body is cause for
alarm. And blood emerging from your ejaculation causes
even greater anxiety. Men who notice blood in their
semen, a condition also known as "hematospermia", are
naturally alarmed by the experience. Is blood in semen a
sign of cancer? Does blood in your semen indicate a
serious medical problem? Because many incidences of
blood in semen go unnoticed, it's not clear how common
this condition actually is.

A 2004 study from the University of Innsbruck, Austria
reported up to 36.3 percent of men who undergo a biopsy
of the prostate develop blood in semen. The blood in the
ejaculate, which is normally a cream-white color, can
range from a hint of pink to brownish-red in tone.
Regardless of the color, having blood in your semen is
worrying. While many incidences of blood in semen are
benign and not a cause for panic, blood in semen can be a
sign that something is not normal.

What Are the Causes of Blood in Semen?

Blood in your semen can signify a potentially serious
medical issue that needs to be addressed, often
immediately. For this reason you should see your health
care provider as soon as possible if you spot blood in your
semen. Remember that blood in semen can be nothing to
worry about, but you should get checked out to make sure.

The most common causes of hematospermia are conditions
that affect the seminal vesicles (the tubes that carry the
semen from the testicles) or the prostate glands.

If you are under 40 and you find blood in your semen,
chances are you have nothing to worry about. Blood in
semen can also be caused by infections in the bladder,
urethra, or testicles. According to research findings
published by the Virginia Mason Medical Center, Seattle
(2009), blood in the semen of men under the age of 40 is
usually benign and requires no further treatment.

But if you are over 40, and you find blood in your semen,
then take steps. It may be caused by a
transmitted infection such as urethritis or a urinary tract
infection. If you are over 40 report blood in the semen,
the cause is usually prostate biopsy. However, it can also
be a sign of prostate cancer especially if other symptoms
accompany the blood such as fever, weight loss or bone

These listed conditions are often associated with

  • Tumors of prostate, bladder, testicles, or seminal

  • Infections

  • Inflammation of prostate, urethra, or epididymis

  • Calculi (stones) in prostrate or seminal vesicles

  • Polyps in urethra

  • Obstruction in the ejaculatory duct

  • Prostate cancer

  • Metastic Cancer (spread from other areas) in
    genitourinary system

  • Cysts or hemorrhage in seminal vesicles

  • Sexually transmitted infections

  • Urethritis

Top 10 Remedies for Blood in Your Semen

Blood in semen is not, in itself, a medical condition, but
rather a symptom of other health issues. So in order to
rectify the problem you will need to address the issues
causing the hematospermia in the first place.

We’ve looked at the major causes of blood in semen and
found out how the experts suggest we treat them.

Use Antibiotics and Natural Remedies to Treat Prostatitis
and Get Rid of Blood in Semen

Prostatitis, or the inflammation of the prostate, is a
common cause of blood in semen.  

There are four different types of prostatitis, according to
University of Maryland Medical Center:

Acute bacterial prostatitis
Chronic bacterial prostatitis
Chronic prostatitis with chronic pelvic pain and
Asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis

Of these 4 types of prostatitis, only chronic bacterial
prostatis produces blood in semen.

Because bacteria, some of which include E. Coli or
Klebsiella, can cause this inflammation, you will need to
take steps to clear up the infection.

Treatment for prostatitis normally requires an oral
antibiotic, such as ciprofloxacin or tetracycline, depending
on the severity of your inflammation. At-home care
includes pain medication, constant hydration, and
uninterrupted rest. Once the inflammation caused by
prostatitis dissipates, the blood in your semen should also

Certain natural remedies have also been found effective in
fighting prostatitis. Quercetin, for example, which is a
bioflavonoid with reputed anti-inflammatory and
antioxidant properties, can be helpful.

A 1999 study from the Institute for Male Urology, Encino,
California reported that quercetin may be helpful for
treating chronic
non-bacterial prostatitis. Thirty men were
given quercetin or a placebo for one month. Those taking
quercetin showed a significantly greater improvement in
symptoms. [Update: Foods high in quercetin include
watercress, kale, sweet potatoes and red onions.]

Selenium may also help prevent and treat chronic bacterial
prostatitis. According to a 2011 study from St. Paul
Hospital, The Catholic University of Korea College of
Medicine, Suwon, Korea selenium can help prevent
bacterial infection growth and have a preventative effect
against prostatitis. (Read more about the reasons
need adequate levels of selenium.)

And, according to 2006 research from Cedars-Sinai
Medical Center, Beverly Hills, California an extract of grass
pollen has been shown to be an effective treatment for
non-bacterial prostatitis. In the six-month study, the
special grass pollen extract was more effective than
placebo in treating the condition.

The leaves of the cleavers plant are reported to be able to
treat prostatitis, bladder infections and kidney stones. This
plant apparently has diuretic effects. However, don't base
your treatment on cleavers as there is no reliable evidence
that the treatment actually works.

Let Blood in Semen Caused by Prostate Gland Biopsy
Resolve Itself

One of the most common causes of blood in semen is a
complication of the prostate gland biopsy. According to a
2007 Department of Urology, University of California, San
Francisco study, approximately 1 in 11 prostate biopsy
patients will experience hematospermia. Symptoms will last
around two weeks. Because it is simply a complication of
the biopsy, the hematospermia should resolve itself in two

3. Unblock
Ejaculatory Duct Obstruction to Stop

If you experience an obstruction in your ejaculatory duct,
you might also suffer from blood in your semen.

Consequently, in order to ensure that you don’t have the
pink to reddish tint in your semen, you will need to treat
that obstruction. The primary method of treatment is
transurethral resection of the ejaculatory ducts (TURED),
which is a surgical procedure performed under anesthesia
and lasts approximately an hour.

Another alternative procedure, described in a 2011 study
from the First Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical
University, China, is the dilation of the ejaculatory duct
using F9 seminal vesicoscopy. Researchers concluded the
procedure involving the dilation of the ejaculatory duct
using F9 seminal vesicoscopy to be equally effective but
with fewer postoperative complications than the TURED

Get Rid of Stones in Prostate to Eliminate Blood in

Prostatic or seminal calculi, similar to kidney stones that
form in the prostate or the seminal vesicles, are another
cause of hematospermia.

A 1990 study from the University Hospital of Wales,
Cardiff, UK found a significant number of the studied
patients with hematospermia had prostatic calculi - 32 out
of the 52 men studied --
that's over 61%.

Guys, these stones can cause many medical complications.
Treatment of the stones usually requires surgical removal
through an open vesisculectomy, an excision of the
seminal vesicle to eliminate the stones.

That's the bad news. The good news is that by treating
these stones, you will also eliminate the symptom of blood
in semen. A 2005 study from the Gülhane Military Medical
Academy, School of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey also
recommends the use of endoscopic treatment for multiple
prostatic calculi.
