Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Blood in the semen in the VAST MAJORITY of the cases is not something serious and usually signifies a minor injury to blood vessels in the urinary tract that is causing the blood to appear in the semen.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

In the majority of people this will go away on its own in sometime to come.

However as a general rule anyone who has hematospermia (blood in semen) is advised to get tested and visit the doctor to rule out an infection which may require antibiotics.
