Recently I had a prostate biopsy done on me. I have had ED problems lately and I had my primary doctor done a series of blood test to determine a possible cause. Everything was O.K. except for a PSA of 4.1. The doctor said that was a little high for my age (41 years). I had a second doctor recommend to have it done and I investigated it on the net and one of the symptoms of prostate cancer was ED so I had it done. Well it turned out negative, but I still have my ED and now I'm afraid of even trying to get excited because of the bleeding. I had blood in my urine for about 4-5 days and some in my stool for about the same amount of time but I get a lot of blood when I ejaculate. The doctor did not say anything about having sex or masterbating so 3 days after the byopsy I masterbated and I was amazed to see so much blood. I asked the doctor about the bleeding on my follow up appointment and he said that it was normal. I waited another week before trying sex this time. I was able to get erections with the help of viagra but when I ejaculated I bled again it seemed like a little less but it was still quite a lot. Is this normal to bleed still 2 weeks after the byopsy or should I be concerned?
Bleeding after prostate biopsy is a common effect. Blood in the urine and stool can last for a couple days, and should start clearing up after that. Blood in the semen can last longer, sometimes up to six weeks. As long as you are feeling well without fever/chills, or other symptoms, it may take a few more weeks before the blood in semen clears up. I would not abstain from sexual interactions, however, give your body some time to recover before seeking further medical help about the ED.
