Bleeding after prostate biopsy

I still have blood in my semen one week after a prostate biopsy. I know this is normal. Will masturbating decrease the number of weeks blood remains in the semen, or does blood continue to leak into the semen until the bleeding from the biopsy finally stops?
Should I go emergency for help or no?

The best answer for you will come from your doctor that performed the biopsy.  Everyone is different with respect to recovery.  As long as blood is leaking into glandular spaces of the prostate there will be blood in semen.
