Post prostate biopsy - blood in ejaculate

I recently had a prostate biopsy (7 days ago) due to an elevated PSA test.  I no longer have any bleeding when I urinate or in my feces.  There is quite a bit of blood in my ejaculate though and I want to know if I should masterbate to "cleanse the system".

There is no harm in clearing the tubes through masturbation and ascertaining that your ejaculation output is back to normal. I have prostatitis and it is recommended.
Traces of bood which are present with the sperm can be for,i n some cases, a few weeks.

The blood is harmless, you can ignore it.
