Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
Blood in the semen (hematospermia) is usually not something to worry about in the vast majority of the cases as it is very commonly due to an injury to the tiny blood vessels.
However, having said that, as a rule, any person who has blood in the semen must be seen and tested to rule out any infection among other things to be sure we do not miss anything.
So I would definitely recommend that you be seen to rule out a possible infection for which you will require a course of an antibiotic.
However, this is usually not something serious.
Let me know if you have more questions.
