I had intercourse with my wife 2 nights ago and upon climax I noticed my semen was a reddish brown colour. I went to see my GP today who checked all my genitals and prostate gland, He was happy with his evaluation, he has requested blood and urine sample.
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out.
What youâre suffering from is known as hematospermia.
The following conditions have been associated with hematospermia, benign or malignant tumors of the prostate, bladder, testes, or seminal vesicles, infections (including, but not limited to, chlamydia, herpes, cytomegalovirus, 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.
The treatment basically depends on the underlying cause. Usually a course of antibiotics is given if thereâs a suspicion of prostatitis.
Hematospermia is not treated if there are no associated symptoms suggestive of a disease.
Please do consult a urologist for the same as it is not possible to make an online diagnosis without examination. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
