Question: I have recently discoverd
traces of blood in my sperm. What could be happening? What would cause
this and why? Chipi
Answer: Dear Chipi,
Blood in the semen can be caused
due to problems in the reproductive tract such as infection, injury,
inflammation. Areas that could be affected include the urethra, the
testicles, the epididymis and/or the prostate.
When blood in the semen is due
to inflammation of the seminal vesicles, it usually goes away by itself.
If the blood is persistant, tests may be necessary.
