In females, this occurrence is known as menopause. The male counterpart to this is known as Andropause.
Hematospermia is not a transmissible condition, so it is not dangerous for your partner. However, if the presence of blood in your semen is caused by a sexually transmitted condition such as gonorrhea, HIV or chlamydia, you will need the appropriate treatment to ensure your partner does not contract the disease or infection.
It is highly recommended that your partner also undergoes the necessary tests and treatments.
Will hematospermia impact my fertility?
In most cases, hematospermia will not affect your fertility. However, if your condition is caused by an underlying health condition such as testicular cancer, it can potentially affect your reproductive capabilities. If you have concerns about your fertility after an episode of hematospermia, you should consider going for a semen analysis to have your fertility assessed.
All my tests came back normal, why am I not improving?
Once your initial test results have proven that there is nothing serious to worry about, you may still continue to experience the presence of blood in your semen for quite some time. You will have to wait for your ejaculation process to become normal again.
It may take a few ejaculations to clear the blood that is already within your ejaculatory ducts.
With that in mind, if you experience recurrent or persistent episodes of blood in your semen, it is highly recommended that you consult your doctor for further testing. Your doctor may carry out more invasive tests such as urocystoscopy, which involves the insertion of a thin tube with a small camera into your penile region to assess your bladder and urethra. Other tests that may be conducted include biopsy and transrectal ultrasound.
