This answer was rated:

Very worried about amount of blood in semen which seems all blood and no semen. I've had prostate exam, blood and urine tests and all are normal but just a scary ailment.

Hi,I'm 50. Been going on about 4 weeks. Mild discomfort very low stomach but I tend to think this may be the hernia as feels similiar to what I had before (I've had the hernia 12 months). Not on any meds or other issues other than hernia and I am very fit (resting heart rate c. 55).

Blood in semen is not uncommon and usually is due to a small broken vein or artery.

In the majority of cases this resolves on its own, needs no treatment and is not a sign of any type of underlying condition or infection.

That's good and put my mind to rest somewhat. It's a rather unsettling sight and quite scary. Thank you is very scary looking...but, as I've said, usually not anything to worry about.

Have a good weekend.
