Thanks for your question.
Blood in the semen can be caused by the increased vascularity in the prostate gland which increases in size with aging.
The increased vascularity can be from the infection or inflammation.
THis usually causes pain in the perineal area.
This can also be related to the blood thinning medication like aspirin if you take daily.
Infection is common cause otherwise.
Sometimes, this can be the presenting symptom of prostate cancer.
Hence, this should be evaluated by your doctor or a specialist called urologist.
In most cases however, this is not concerning and subsides on its own.
But I will still suggest you to discuss with your doctor.

Best wishes
