The presence of blood in the semen (ejaculate) is also called hematospermia. The potential causes have been
very well explained by Dr Anurag. Blood in semen can be caused by many conditions affecting the male
genitourinary system. These include infections like herpes, Chlamydia, cytomegalovirus, trichominiasis ;
inflammation of the prostate (prostatitis), epididymis (epididymitis), or urethra (urethritis) ; calculi
(stones )in the seminal vesicles or prostate ; polyps in the urethra ; ejaculation-duct obstructions ; cysts,
hemorrhage, or other abnormalities in the seminal vesicles and benign or malignant tumors. I agree with Dr
Anurag that with your history of BPH, any malignancy of the prostate needs to be ruled out. You need to get
PSA and ultrasound/ MRI prostate done apart from urine and semen examination. My sincere advice would be to
consult a urologist. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep us posted in case you have any additional
doubts. Kind regards.

I have read the above the above articles and responses. I had a morphine pump installed about 2 years ago, for
pain in my back. Immediately after the surgery, the very next day, I felt like I passed a stone. Since then I
have a complete lack of desire and my semen is a redish, yellowish, color and is watery . I am having on and
off pains on both sides of my abdomen but primarily on my left and at times is excruciating. Colonoscopy came
back good. Is an endoscopy next? I hope not. What are the possible complications if I continue to put this off
? Communicable disease is not an option, at least I don't think so. I have been married 12 years and
faithful. Any ideas as to a possible cause? Lots of questions,, thanks for your help.

I am 70 years old and I ejaculate on average of one or two times a week. My semen recently has a brown color.
It has always been cloudy white before . I have no urinary problems I know of. I take blood pressure meds. I
also have had herpes since about 30 years old. Why the discoloration and what do I need to do.
