blood in sperm and in urine after ejaculation

10 months ago i saw blood in my sperm after intercourse. i had sex twice and everything was ok, and after the third time the problems began. my partner and i had hard sex and my penis hurt a bit when she was on top of me. i urinated a few minutes after ejaculating and blood came out along with a very big blood clot at the end. i had sexual intercourse about 7 or 8 times before seeing a doctor. the same occurred except for 2 times, in which no blood appeared. but the majority of times blood came out in the sperm, or only after ejaculation during urination, or both in the sperm and the urine. once i woke up without having had sex that week and urinated blood. i tested my blood, sperm, and urine and the only abnormality was a high psa level. my dr said it is very rare and is that high in 40/50 year old. i did a biopsy for prostate cancer and my dr said that everything was ok. after the biopsy, i waqs back to normal. however, the dr didn't know what was wrong and said it was an infection that went away. he didn't explain how it went away, and he told me to take vitamins and drink water. this was in september. 2 months ago i did a psa test and it was on the same level. no blood had appeared until three weeks ago. i had sex 4 times. the first three were normal, and during the fourth i ejaculated blood and blood and a blood clot came out in my urine. 4 days ago i was at a strip club and had a lap dance. i was aroused and had an erection. i went to the wc and a huge clot came out followed by blood an then another clot. this occured again during urination. i had not ejaculated thoug

Were you tested for STD's?  Sounds to me like you should if you haven't - if that's clear I would certianly push to see a urologist....it doesn't sound like "an infection" that just "went away"  Good luck

I had a PSA which continued to rise.  I had four biopsies which were negative, but the fifth was positive.  A needle biopsy can miss the tumor if it is small or in a place not easy to sample.  If I were you I would a least ask for another biopsy.  Good Luck!

thanks for the feedback. i saw my dr a few days ago and he told me to make blood, urine, and semen tests. things are more complicated now. blood comes out after i have sex. when i masturbate there is no blood. he told me that this is very strange. he told me to test my semen 3 times. he told me not to ejaculate 3 or 4 days before the 1st test, then to do the test again 3 days later, and to test it again 3 days after and immediately after having sex. this way he will be able to compare the results. i have no problem getting an erection and feel no pain whatsoever during ejaculation. my dr says that this is the first time he hears of such a case. people who get sperm in their blood experience pain when it comes out and have problems getting an erection, he says.apart from the fact that i get blood in my semen and in my urine after ejaculating only when i have sex, and not when i masturbate, the most mysterious and mind-boggling thing is what happened to me a few weeks ago. i went to a strip club and had a lap dance. i was extremely aroused and had an erection. the dancer touched my penis now and then for around 10 minutes. i was not allowed to touch her. i did not ejaculate, and i did not experience an orgasm. a few minutes after the lap dance had finished, i went to the toilet because i had to urinate. i urinated blood and a clot came out in the end. like i said, i did not have sex, masturbate, or ejaculate.
i tested for std's when my problem began a year ago and everything was fine. my dr has never mentioned any kind of std as being a possible reason for my situation. he says that my prostate is absolutely fine and that it is the size it should be. he therefore excludes the possibilty of me having prostate cancer because everything is fine and the fact that a person of my age (27) is too young to have cancer. he also excludes prostatitis as being a possibilty. he says that what is abnormal is my psa level and that i feel healthy (along with what i have written above).
i trust my dr 100 per cent and he is the best urologist in the country, and although i did not trust him in the beginning, i now believe every word he says. i have seen him over ten times and all of his other patients are above the age of 50, so i am certain that he is determined to solve my problem.
i will test myself for stds again, although my dr did not ask me to. do you know what stds are associated to my symptoms? i have never heard of blood in the sperm and in the urine after ejaculation being related to an std. thanks again

Gentlemen... came across this post during a Google search related to a problem I had last week.  My symptoms were very similar to the original post.  I had stringly (almost clot-like) book in my urine and semen for a period of three days, and then it stopped.  There was no pain associated with it.  I did experience some tenderness when riding my bike, but I'm not sure if it was related or just me being paranoid that week.  It's not unusual to get a little bit of pressure on your prostrate when getting on a bike awkwardly.  

Anyway - the doc did blood and urine tests while this was happening.  The blood in the urine was an obvious result, and while I don't recall specifics of the blood work - he did tell me that there was no sign of an infection of any kind (including STD).  My creatinine levels were a bit high (just barely) and whatever measure of general renal function was a bit low (also barely) but not so much that he thinks there's a problem.  I lift weights regularly so he thought that the normal ranges may be a bit off for me.

The blood has stopped and a urine test as of yesterday showed no detectable trace of blood in my urine at all.  My doc is still a bit baffled and wants to be safe so he's sending me for a renal tract ultrasound next week to look for anything out of the ordinary.  

I'm hoping that it was a fluke acute occurance, but if anything is concluded I'll post it here.

My apologies but there was an obvious typo in my second sentence.  It should read: "I had stringly (almost clot-like) blood in my urine and semen for a period of three days, and then it stopped."

I have the same exact problem on and off for years, some years no problem at all. No one seems to have a clue what it is. People with this problem get tested for cancer and have all types of scans done with no result. I hope that some light would be shead on this issue and someone will find some answers. It really takes the fun out of sex knowing that I might ejac blood and urinate clots. First I thought I was passing stones or something but now I just don't know and I'm a little scared. Please come back to this forum if anyone with this problem has answers.

I have the exact same symptoms as you losst, hisham and ebell79. I have seen 3 different urologists and a few other general practitioners but like you, I have never had any answers.

I have had this problem on and off since 1990 when I was 33. I am now 49. Since last summer, the problem is recurring more often. I do not have and have never had any STD's. The first time it happened was after a masturbation during which I held back my ejaculation for a very long time. When I saw thick red blood coming out instead of semen, I freaked out.

I had a complete checkup recently. My PSA is normal, prostate is not swollen, blood pressure normal, no cholesterol, blood chemistry is fine. I don't smoke and drink only occasionally. I am about 10-15 pounds overweight but that's not unusual for a man my age. I don't exercise enough but I do watch what I eat.

In every occurence, the pattern is the same: blood in my semen and more often than not, small blood clots. When I urinate after, more blood comes out along with a medium to large size blood clot. The size of the clot depends on how much time elapsed between ejaculation and urination. Once the blood clot has passed through, there's no more blood and the next urinations are clear.

Over the years, I made some mistakes and learned a few things along the way.

1. No medication I tried never made any difference.

2. The only thing that makes my condition improve is abstinence for a week or two (which drives me absolutely nuts). Sometimes, even 2 weeks isn't enough and blood still comes out. It seems the amount of time required to heal keeps increasing over the years. I find this part really hard to deal with.

3. When it happens, I always make sure I go urinate ASAP. The sooner the better because the blood clot gets bigger and stickier with time. The longer it takes, the harder and more painful it is to urinate. And the more damage to your urethra the clot is likely to cause when it goes through (on top of the damage that's already there which in turn will take longer to heal... It's a vicious circle).

4. When you have this condition, NEVER NEVER have sex or masturbate just before going to sleep because of what I mentionned above: it's the perfect recipe for a big, hard and painful blood clot. I did that once and bitterly regretted it. The first thing I do when I get up in the morning is go pee. Well that day, my urethra was so clogged it took until 11PM until I was able to urinate and the clot that came out was the size of a friggin baseball!! Worst day of my life. NEVER again...

Doctors call this hematospermia. The consensus among them is that it's a benign condition and nothing to worry about. That's only true if it occurs only once or very rarely in your life. If it's a recurring/worsening condition like in my case, then it's a pure nightmare. It ruins your sex life which in turn leads to anxiety, insecurity, extreme frustration, loss of self esteem and depression.

The only people who have the luxury of calling this condition "benign" and "nothing to worry about" are the ones who are not afflicted by it. I strongly resent the way some physicians trivialize this condition. It's anything but trivial.

I have been searching the internet for months trying to find men who share this condition. If the doctors can't do anything for us then we're going to have to do something for ourselves. I don't know what the cause is and I'm desperately seeking a solution.

I'm not a physician but I am left with no other alternative but to speculate and theoricize on the cause of this condition. After much thought and analysis, I'm leaning towards the idea that the bleeding is caused by tears in the lining of the urethra and that the tears are caused by the skin stretching very tight during an erection. That and/or blood vessels rupturing because of high blood pressure during an erection.

This would explain why the bleeding stops after the ejaculation: IMO, the blood in the urine is only residual blood (mixed with semen) that got pushed into the bladder during ejaculation. The erection goes down, the skin goes loose and blood pressure goes down. The cut or blood vessel sort of semi-heals itself until the next erection/ejaculation which opens the cut again. This would also explain why abstinence for one to three weeks is the only thing that works: internal tears on thin mucous membranes take a long time to heal properly.

Please keep me all posted. I will check here often and do the same if I find anything. If anybody here who shares my condition are interested in exchanging email addresses, don't hesitate to ask. Also if you're reading this and haven't posted, I strongly encourage you to share your experience. The more we gather, the better our chances of finding a solution.

In reply to seeker01.

Great response, thanks

I have exactly the same symptoms, however this is my first coccurence, and I have to say that my feelings on the root cause are the same i.e. it's a rupture that's only opened when the errection is brought on by direct sex with your partner, I personally have no issues with masturbation.

I'm sad to hear about the abstinence, I hope that wont be the same with myself :) that'll be a killer

Like seeker01 I've had prostate tests (DRE), twice now with no signs of the dreaded PC or prostatis, I've just been for a cysctoscopy today and have no issues on that side either.

I have been doing some very long distance cycling recently which the consultant felt may have brought this on (this info you wlll find on the net).  Hermaatospia he said generally goes away of it's own accord, however I agree with seeker01 that it can be an emmotional rollercoster for both yourself and your partner in the interim.

As a btw, I dont even have to ejaculate for the bleeding to occur, just heavy petting can bring this on, but I get the same clots in the same way as everyone else.

What I would recomened to those who have the affilction is to go see your doctor and get the tests done, what is true for some may not be true for others and these symptoms can be a sign of other things.

On the bright side my consultant did say today that it was highly unlikely for it to be something else in my case, the reason I ended up having to have the additionl tests was because my PSA count was at 2.6, and whilt that is below the 4.0 cut off point, for a man of my age (43)it was still considered to be a little on the high side, 2.5 is the cuttoff between 40 - 50.  Again a slightly raised PSA count can also be because of the hermatospia symptoms......  I tell you, it's a minefiled of dissinformation.

Like all of us, you can't find a thing on the internet that doesn't point you to prostate troubles e.g. PC.  What is true from what he said this morning is that the blood does come from the prostate......  I tend to instinctivly agree with seeker01 however that it's a tear or leak when fully errect, what makes me think that this may not be the cause is that you'd think they could see this down the scope and it's a simple diagnsis. A mate joked saying I'd got a high pressure leak ...maybe he's right.

As I get more diagnosis from consultants I will for sure post up any findings.  However again, dont put off going to your own doctor to get yourself tested

Lets hope one of us comes up with an answer, however the fact that there's no info on the net, and doctors seem unable to explain it is frustrating and maybe tells us that there is no answer.

c'est la vie

Frustating is right but I refuse to believe that there is no answer. I am convinced that the medical community simply hasn't found the answer yet. Part of the problem lies in the fact that only a very small percentage of adult males have this problem and as a consequence, it doesn't get the attention needed to find a durable cure when it comes to medical research.

Hello all!

I am really sad to hear all the symptoms you guys are facing. I just recently had similar minor problem, I am not sure if it relates at all. It happened twice that AFTER urinating I saw a few drop of blood, the first time there was very tiny clot-like thingie in that blood, second time it was just blood, while the urine was of normal color.

I have not been to a doctor yet, I searched the internet and the closest thing to myptoms I saw was some infections related to kidney, bladder etc. But I didn't feel any pain before, during or after urinating. I had sex in the morning but there was no blood when urinated afterwards (don't know if there was anything in sperm).

Did anyone of you face this? Is it beginning of what you guys are going through now? If that is the case and all of you have been to doctor who are clueless about this then may be we should start analysing it ourselves. Put all our eating habits like foods, physical habits (work nature) to see if there is anything common etc.

i was relieved to read stories about this and i prayed  nothing is serious...
im a gay male and had this encounter with a 24 year old  guy(accdg to him his 25).we had oral sex and used me with condom...we masturbated and cummed and thats it. he cleaned himself in the washroom.after that, i went inside and shocked by the blood on the side of the toilet bowl.i freaked  out and ask him whats that all about.i was so terrified. he said  he have some prostate problem. i was a little releived.he left and still i have a bad feeling about this, so i check out the condom he used and stunned by the tinged of blood clot in his semen. terrible things runs thru my mind. this happened early this morning, and i dunno what to do. i head for some info thru a nurse friend and told  me stuff like liver and kidney problem and a hint of std. but after i read all the so similar stories here, im relieved but still worries a little. there a side of this incident that teaches me to practice more on safe sex, i believe that everythings happens for a reason, and the message for me is to look after my health more, limit encounters and practice safe sex..thanks heavens.....

Hello All,

About four weeks ago, after an intercourse with my wife, I noticed at the end of my ejaculation, the sperm with a redish color. Due to the circustamces I felt I had nothing to worry about. No pain or clot while urinating.
After 5 days on hold, I did not even remember the event until today after masturbating I noticed blood again at the end of the ejaculation. Again, no pain or itching or anything different, just blood mixed with sperm.
I google "blood after ejaculation" and found this site with real life experience.
I can guarantee it is not STD. I have been married for 13 years (I am 34) and donate blood regularly. I don't smoke, not overweighted, drink socially, eat well and exercise regularly.

I found very useful all the comments specialy the one sent by seeker01. Based on all comments I decided not to seek medical opinion just yet. I will watch my habits and try to find any correlation. As example, for the second event, I had ejaculated all days for the previous 10 days.

If I had to guess I would say stress may be a factor to be considered.

After some weeks I will come up with some information. If the condition does not change, I will seek medical care.

I had a similar situation;
Erectile dysfunction set in in 1997. Viagra helped when it came on the market. Retrogressive ejaculation followed in 2001; it may be as a result of damage done during removal of kidney-stone although doctors seem to disagree on this. Found blood when masturbating (but none in urine) earlier this year. Saw doctor and had pta test done. It was normal. I went though hell while waiting on result. I was almost sure I has cancer. The condition cleared up. It has now recurred and there seems to be more blood than the first time.Seemingly it can be caused by burst blood vessels when "there is no semen".

Hi
I am a 35yo white male and I got similar episodes of blood in urine during the last 3 years, averaging twice a year, total of 5 so far.
In my case it started during masturbation where I held the ejaculate for (too) long time.
After the second episode, I went to the doctor, she made me all the  possible tests: PSA, blood and urine cultures, prosthate exploration and bladder x-rays and ultrasound.
Everything was normal. Finally the explanation I got was that there was a tissue problem somewhere in the ducts running from the sperm vesicles to the penis, and in the same way some people are prone to nosebleedings, it might be the same with me and my seminal ducts.
The congestion in the prosthate during long  lasting erections and the high pressure of the ejaculation may cause damage in weak duct tissue, thus producing the bleeding.
After some tests I came to similar conclusions as seeker01
posted on 07/05/2006.
Looks like abstinence during 2 weeks after each episode kind of solves the problem, as long as no hard erection "happens", which requires *lots* of mental discipline :-( during that time. Shortening the intercourse/masturbation duration also might prevent the problem from reappearing.

Hi
well I think im the youngest in here, Im 15 years old. I have the same problem all of you have. This just recently started to happen to me while I was on vacation. I had been abstinence for a pretty long time. When I had finally masturbated blood came out instead of sperm. I freak and didnt tell nobody till the next day when I notice I was peeing blood. I got scared and hold back my urine and my dad took me to the hospital. There I got check and they didnt find anything. Well the doctor told me to drink alot of liquids and to pee alot, and when I got back home I pee and it was back to normal. Well I dont really remember but I remember that I had masturbated and blood didnt come out out, but then again it happen but I would pee blood and on the second time I would pee it would be normal. Then one day once I got back and it happen again but really bad this time. I had really got into it and did it for a while when alot of blood came out. So i went to pee and i waz peeing alot of blood then again and more blood, untill i got really clot and couldnt pee so went into emergency into the hospital. There I got check for everyhting. They took out my blood, check my urine with blood, got a ultrasonic to check for stones, and got a physical check on my penis. They had to stick in a small tube into my penis so i can pee and let me tell you that was the worst exprience i have every had in my life. Well i pee a lil bit and went to the bathroom. There i was still clot but the though of having something stuck into my penis again made me pee. First i pee blood and could see the urine a lil then a black clot came out and then a big one came out like the size of a dollar quarter and then finally normal pee. I was in the hospital all day without peeing so when i finally pee it waz a full relief and i think the longest **** i had ever took. Welll now i been abstinence a week and 2 days , and im scared to do anything, I think I got dramatize with that tube they stuck in my penis. Well Im soppose to go to the urologist in a couple of days and see what he thinks.

Thank God I am not the only one.   Watching Playboy movies this morning and went to the bathroom to masturbate.  Noticed the blood in semen.  Freaked out!  Thought about calling my doctor, but first wanted to check the web.  Stumbled onto this site and very thankful for it.  The only thing that I know is that a couple days ago I either pulled my groin muscle or somehow squished my left testicle.  Man did it hurt!  Feeling pretty good right now, but still a little tender.  Could that be related to my experience?  Even if I did go to the doctor, from everyone's comments, sounds like it would be a waste of time.
I will keep checking on this post to see if anyone has come up with anything else.  
By the way I am 35.
Thanks for the support!

I have the same symptons as all you guys, i must say thank you to everyone who has posted as i feel quite relieved that nothing is seriously wrong judging by what you have all wrote. I am 33, it first happend to me after a fairly regular sex session with my girlfriend when i was 27, i felt i needed to urinate, i passed a lot of blood, thick, clotted and a very dark reddy colour, after about 5 mins the same happend, i would guess that each time i must have passed about half a litre, maybe there was urine mixed with it, i dont know but if there was you couldnt tell, there was no pain but it really freaked me out. My doctor said it was normal and it never happend again until last month, thats nearly 6 years, in that 6 years i have been sexually active without any problems. Last month it happend again, this time it was worse, the same senario, sex then a need to urinate, just a few drops came out but i could tell there was a blockage, i tried for maybe 2 or 3 hours to pass the blood but my tubes were blocked or clotted, i was starting to panic so i drank lots of water hoping the extra pressure would eventually force clear the blockage, i then put my clothes on and was getting ready to go to casualty as i knew this had to be cleared when i felt the urge to urinate again, the water i had drank was ready to be passed and it worked, it cleared the clot but it was a real mess, it shot out and went everywhere. I havnt had sex since but i have masturbated reguarly without any problems, a friend of mine who is a doctor says there is nothing to worry about but i find it quite distressing. I am a smoker, i am fairly fit but maybe a little over weight, i try to eat well. It is really comforting to know im not alone, i also found this by typing 'ejaculating then blood' into google. There has to be a reason why this happens, i for one would love to know why, cheers guys.

Hi, I know you'll all understand when I say I was pleased to read all these comments here. Its because i thought I suffered alone!  I am 61, have a normal sex life and a couple of years ago started noticing blood in semen and also urine, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, large clots small clots, fresh blood, old blood.  At first I freaked too! Eventually I went to see a specialist urologist and after I had a mini-camera shoved up my JT (how painful is THAT!!!) I was told I have no protate cancer and that these episodes were nothing to worry about.  Well I can go a few weeks without any sign of blood, then it returns. Pink sperm is something else isnt it??  I get no pain with this, but I HAVE identified that it happens when I get low back pain, and I get this from exercise, usually when I carry a bag of golf clubs - but I also get back pain without carrying clubs - so is the pain the cause of the blood, or the blood the cause of the pain???   I notice that some of you have received injuries - so maybe it is related in some way???
I'll check in with you guys from time to time to see if there are any "cures" !   Take is easy........

Hi, My name is Adam and I am 19. I have the same symptoms as all of you and I have been through everything. It first started with me when I was 17 and now has come back after a sexual episode with my girlfreind. When I first had it my doctor thought it was kiddney stones but they never found a stone. I was in the hospital for 2 days at one point because I could not go to the bathroom (a very painful Catheter changed that).Also, like all of you I have been told by my doctor that they just don't know what it is and they continue to tell me not to worry about it. I am, however, freacking out! I am avoiding my girlfriend just because I dont want to get turned on by her and end up the the hospital. I need help badly, i am leaving for school soon and that is across the country. God, this sucks! I am a healthy 19 year old man. I run every day and eat healthy foods. I have good blood pressure and weigh around 130 (5'7). I don't know if that helps but there it is anyways. Email me if anyone hears anything @ ***@****

It's senseless to state my symptoms. I have a question though.

This seems to have started after I had an unfortunate experience with my lady. She moved in a way that put excessive force on my organ in an unnatural position. It was sudden and forceful. My organ was forced in the wrong direction, so to speak. This is the only thing I can connect the problem with.

Have any of you had such an experience? I noticed that many of you referred to "rough sex" during your explanation. Perhaps we've experienced some form of damage which is uncommon. One of the guys that offered a comment made sense in that we could have done some internal damage which requires proper healing.

Sex is a great gift, but it isn't everything. We need to quit until we figure it out.

I'm about to research the psychological connection to the passion which arouses us in order to discover how the physiological effects of ejaculation tie in.

You are all seeing how ejaculation takes on different forms. No one is seeing it after masturbation. I don't even like masturbation, but the circumstances require that we test ourselves.

I'm like the rest of you. No blood after masterbation (masturbation). The fellow who experienced the problem after a lap dance experienced the problem although he didn't have sex. But he was obviously aroused.

I have determined that there is a psychological factor. Something has to be happening differently physically based on our method of arousal. If I have very passionate thoughts towards my woman, blood will form as I become aroused. But since there's no passion in masterbation (masturbation), I experience no bleeding. Check yourselves leading up to orgasm while with your woman. Rest assured you will see blood in your sperm if you're leaking at all.

Maybe I'm stupid, but I have to look at the psychological factor.
I haven't even been to a doctor because they've rarely helped me or my children in the past. In the meantime, I'm going to abstain from sex and see if my body heals itself while I keep digging for answers.

If any believers are out there, get to praying for answers, because I haven't heard any good ones yet.

Correction:

I posted a comment a few minutes ago in which I stated that the only thing I could tie it to was an unpleasant incident with my woman which may have injured by organ.

There was one other thing that happened prior to the symptoms.

During weight training (squats) I strained an old hernia injury.
I experienced lower abdominal strains and have since been trying to heal the injury.

What's up?

Look I have no doubt anymore that, reading the above and based upon my own experience, the problem is a mechanical one.  Veins are stressed up during erection and sexual intercourse because of strong prostatic compressions.  I think this blood in spermea ailment can be stopped short the same way people experiencing internal hemorroids (hemorrhoids) do.  For those who do not know what internal hemorroids (hemorrhoids) are, its a bleeding of vessels located just inside the anal passage.  So my strong recomendation is this one: after taking your shower try to spread the region located between testicals and anal passage, location of the prostate, with icy water for a period of around 30 seconds (which is a lot when applying icy water on the skin).  Do not worry, you will not die of it.  Many people swim in icy water, even in winter time, Scandinavians, Japanese, and thereby strenghten their immune system.  Icy water will contract your veins and vessels, stopping short hemoragia and reparing broken vessels.  It will also strenghten them for when you will have sexual intercourse again.  Do it for a period of two to three weeks.  As a whole, cold water will do good to your body, it will help your bodily energies and immune system focus on problem areas.  To avoid pain when urinating after having ejaculated sperm mixed with blood, make sure to urinate immediately after ejaculation.  This will free the urine channel.  Take care!

hi guys,

Same story with the blood in the sperm pretty much.

Just happened for the first time two weeks ag and as follows;

im 32;
passed a large clot during ejaculation with my partner for first time;
went to the toilet to pee and noticed further blood and clot in urine;
clot was large enough to feel moveing down my urthra and was stringy on examination;
went and saw my doctor and she sent me for ultrasound and xray which came back fine with the exception of some minor vascular calcification which is unrelated (in wrong area).
went back today to doctor and she has taken a PSA test so we will see what the result is;

One thing that I have been expereincing a range of symptoms from some mystery illness for the last 8months or so after a trip to the phillipines;
Around returning was diagnosed with a gut parasite _ Blastocystis;
took course of antibiotics on 4 occasion this year for this;
also diagnosed with whooping cough without the cough this year;
Also a period of high anxiety and depression for me as I thought I had contracted some STD or something - all negative except for CMV and Epstein Barr which already knew about.
Also my liver enzymes have been fluctuating, intestinal ulceration on the ileum (GIT), apthous tongue ulcers and periodical low iron studies on several occasions;

I don't know if these are related because you all sound like you fit and healthy but I am wondering if stress has triggered and autoimmune response because these all seem to be signs of inflammation in various body systems etc.

I would be interested to see if stress is a common sign in our cases.

Lets keep this up as its important to share anything that might help us in the right direction!

Cheers

The stress thing is actually one I can relate to. When it first started I was having major problems with my 3yr girlfriend. The second time is started was when all my freinds had left for college and I was heading off basically to start my life, very stressful to me atleast.

bleak, you mentionned:

"I'm like the rest of you. No blood after masterbation (masturbation)."

... some of us DO ejaculate blood both during intercourse and masturbation. Even though the symptoms are the same, I noticed that the circumstances in which they occur tend to vary from one guy to the next.

The psychological factor is definitely worth looking into. From my personal experience, I'm personally leaning towards a psycho-motor cause myself. Let me explain. Since about 10 days after my last post above, I have been OK... touching wood (no pun intended) and thanking my lucky star here.

Like I mentionned, this condition usually occurs for me after holding back ejaculation for a long time either during intercourse or masturbation. During intercourse, men are typically concerned by wanting to perform. This, both out of male pride and from the desire to satisfy our female partner.

During masturbation, I guess we simply want to make the pleasure last longer. Maybe we just overdo it. Maybe excessive stroking, either from the pressure of a hand or a woman's vagina (especially if it's very tight) can cause the delicate internal tissue or a blood vessel to become raw and tear during the pressure of ejaculation.

Bottom line:
I've been taking it real easy. I do masturbate but I try to stroke or touch myself as little as possible and I'm careful not to apply too much hand pressure on my penis. During intercourse, I have no control over these factors of course but OTOH, I don't try to hold back my ejaculation.

In both cases, and this is the psycho-motor factor I was mentionning above, I don't PUSH my ejaculation either (which is something that I semi-consciously did). My theory is that by trying to voluntarily "assist" your ejaculation's muscular spasms during orgasm can be a cause of the damage. The reason being that if your "voluntary pushing" goes "out of synch" with your natural involuntary orgasmic spasms, some kind of tearing could result from it.

Like some kind of tug-of-war between voluntary and involuntary contractions... and your blood vessels is the rope.

So, try to let your spams occur naturally... Once you reach the "point of no return" during sex, don't hold back and don't push either. When it's time, it's time. Let go and let nature take its course.

Also, I have been taking natural supplements for several months to strengthen the body's blood vessels: Grape Seed extract, Horse Chestnut and Butcher's Broom. I can't tell for sure if they helped but they sure can't hurt. I also take Proscar (1/4 of a pill a day) for hair regrowth.

Hello,

I am a 25 yr old male.  I had this happen to me about four months ago when I was having intercourse with my wife.  It scared the living daylights out of us both.  When I had this happen though I was stuck in Texas, and I live in Ohio.  To say the least we were both in an exteremely stressfull situation while in Texas beyond the blood in my ejaculation.  I went to the hospital about five hours after the incident, they were not very worried but I still was freaked out.  My wife was beside herself thinking something could truly be wrong, and while she might have been over-reacting, she had her reasons.  

Anyways they told me to go to my regular doctor in Ohio as soon as possible.  So without further delay we left that day, and then were at my regular doctors within two days.  At the hospital in Texas, the doctors in Ohio, and the urologist I was further refered to.  They all said the same damn thing, Forcefull Ejaculation.  They barely even gave a **** what I was feeling or worried about.  It helped they are so certain, but I had it again last night.  We were in the same sexual position as last time, but this time instead of ejaculating on her back like I had originally had, I did it inside of her.  Only noticed the blood because I was wiping and squeezing any left overs out.  

She is not worried, and I am.  But due to the fact that I have just started a new job, and have absolutely no health benefits I cannot/will not go to the doctors, because we are still paying off the bills!

I hate to sound what I guess could be considered like a baby, but I am telling you all this.  Stuff like this scares the **** out of me.  Ya know?  I just got married in June, and I really, really do not want to die of some mis-diagnosed colon cancer.

I agree with what people above have said, when they say that it seems like the doctors simply do not care/worry, and do not see the emotional side of something like this.  So please if any of you do know a place where they treat this for real, and have answers let me know.

RE:Adam20

Hi, My name is Adam and I am 19. I have the same symptoms as all of you and I have been through everything. It first started with me when I was 17 and now has come back after a sexual episode with my girlfreind. When I first had it my doctor thought it was kiddney stones but they never found a stone. I was in the hospital for 2 days at one point because I could not go to the bathroom (a very painful Catheter changed that).Also, like all of you I have been told by my doctor that they just don't know what it is and they continue to tell me not to worry about it. I am, however, freacking out! I am avoiding my girlfriend just because I dont want to get turned on by her and end up the the hospital. I need help badly, i am leaving for school soon and that is across the country. God, this sucks! I am a healthy 19 year old man. I run every day and eat healthy foods. I have good blood pressure and weigh around 130 (5'7). I don't know if that helps but there it is anyways. Email me if anyone hears anything @ ***@****



I am almost the opposite of you on this Adam, I am a 25 yr old male, 5'10 163, smoker who does not take really good care of himself. Although I have had two catheters before in my life, one was after a car wreck where I was left with scar tissue from how they catherized me, and the other was after a stomach surgery called a Fundal Placation, I think thats the spelling.  Trust me, you are not alone in this.  The wisest thing to do is find a new doctor, and keep at them untill they tell you something.

If anyone needs or wants to contact me, ***@****

Relieved I found you guys yet dissapointed that no cure was posted. I believe I will try DoctorSams suggestion with the ice. But perhaps a cold compress. Where I'm from there is no such thing as cold water out of a faucet.
In the interest of finding the common ground I will describe my scenarios and physical characteristics.
I'm 38 about 20 lbs overweight. i do not workout but use to be in construction so i am still in pretty good shape. The extra pounds come from working behind a desk the last 2 years. I do have high levels of stress, i suffer from tension headaches. I quit smoking about 8 years ago.
The first occurance was about 10 months ago. Went to the Dr. and he ran the gambit of test including the trip to the urologists and his lovely little "Camera on a Stick". You would think in this day and age they could have made it alittle smaller.
It eventually went away after a couple of weeks. Of course it has returned again or I wouldn't be writing this now. In the time between, the sex with my wife has pretty much been the same. I prefer long forplay so i have an erection for an extended period of time.My masterbation (masturbation) sessions have lately been real quick. I wouldn't say we have rough sex but I do have her push my penis towards my feet when she is performing oral sex. My penis naturally goes upward rather than straight out. The pushing down makes it more intense.
This latest occurance was a couple of weeks ago. Like the gentlman at the strip club I had been aroused by watching something on TV for awhile when i got up to urinate I got a few trickles of blood then a mass blockage. I was unable to urinate until i was in the shower about an hour later. The clot was about 2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide.
Now that it has started again I will keep close track of the scenarios and see if the cold compress works. I don't think i can control my stress levels since the fact that this is happening has got me pretty stressed out.

Another case checking in here! I first started to post a couple of weeks ago, but abandoned it and saved the text intending to return later because I wanted to show my wife this thread but felt awkward about her seeing our details on here. Here's what I wrote then:

"Sat here at 3am very relieved to find this thread!

I'm a 38 year old, married 14 years with no other sexual partners. I've just had this urinating blood after sex thing for the second time. The first was about a month ago. My wife freaked when there was blood all over the sheets. She was sure it was her, but when I went to the toilet I was urinating bright red. I told her this, but she was still convinced it was her that had bled and that I must just have had some of her blood in my penis from having sex. When my  urine ran clear after the next time I went to the toilet, I convinced myself that maybe she was right, even though really I knew there had been too much blood in my urine for that to be the explanation. As it didn't happen again next time we made love, I kind of forgot about it.

However, as I say I've just had the same thing again after an oral sex session. This time there was no blood when I ejaculated, and I fell asleep afterwards, then woke up needing to urinate, and passed a lot of blood. Unlike most of you there were no obvious clots. However, part way through urinating, the stream just stopped even though I felt I still needed to go. I tried to continue urinating but couldn't. I got in the shower, and after a few moments, the stream of urine mixed with blood continued, garadually running a from vivid bright red, to a paler pink.

After that the scenario will be familiar: a feeling of real anxiety and straight onto the internet to try and find out what's up. This thread seems to be the only reference that describes these symptoms. Like others this has never happened during masturbation. This time there was no blood mixed with my semen, but the first occasion I think I must have bled while inside my wife, even though I ejaculated outside."

After I wrote that I had more deep red urine, and a blockage followed by a couple of large clots before things got back to normal.

As soon as I could I contacted my doctor (we have a system where you speak on the phone and he decides whether you need to see him). Anyhow he was quite reassuring and said it was probably the result of normal changes in the prostate resulting in bleeding similar to a nosebleed. But he said he'd refer me to the urology dept of the hospital to rule out any other problems.

Since then I've been waiting to hear from the hospital, and have avoided sexual contact with my wife through anxiety about the consequences. I have masturbated fairly regularly with no symptoms. Until last night, when I masturbated before going to bed, then went to the bathroom and passed deepish pink urine and a biggish clot again.

I phoned the hospital this morning to check my referral had been passed on, and to find out how long I should be waiting to hear from them. It could be up to 13 weeks before I get an appointment.

A common thread here is that even assuming this condition is benign in the sense that it isn't life threatening or physically debilitating, it can provoke real anxiety. I only slept an hour or two last night so felt dreadful in work today. I'm going to pee every few minutes and I'm thinking 'is this a symptom that there's something wrong, or am I just wanting to pee because I'm anxious.' Also I'm getting fairly low level abdominal aches, but again, there's as good a chance that that's a result of combined fatigue and anxiety. ut then I'm anxious that it may be something more. Vicious circle time.

There doesn't seem to be that much online about this (hence the congregation of bewildered posters here, I guess) but I came across an interesting relevant article:

http://www.jpgmonline.com/article.asp?issn=0022-3859;year=2004;volume=50;issue=4;spage=312;epage=313;aulast=Kumar#ft5

hi, Im 19 and i agree with the stress level being related to this. Im accused of such a bad charge that my life is turned upside down i cant work, im suspended from college and court will prolly last up to a yr and i kno im innocent but Im still very stressed from it so this is prolly why this condition has been occuring. It just started yesterday, i feel normal before and after, the urine is fine but theres lots of blood mixed in with the sperm. yesterday it was just specks of blood so i didnt think to much bout it, but today it was a large amount of blood with the sperm. i havent yet urinated after the masterbation (masturbation) which happened a few hrs ago, but im not sure if i cant because im just to parinoid of this whole ordeal or if its really clotting like a bunch of other people have mentioned. I too would love to email back and forth with all to come up with the cause to this messed up condition. email me at ***@****

ps there are 2 letter os in the email Not zeros.

Hello everyone,

I really dont need to mention anymore systoms because they are already posted above, just thought that I could just place a post, to say here is another case. I've had this happen 4 times over last 5 years. I been to all the doctors with same results as above, NO AWNSERS??

Here is what I have learned.

First time I freaked and did all the doctor things thinking I was going to bleed to death and die. Doctors had no swnsers and said I was going to be fine.

So I did some testing which caused next two times almost predetermined based on some thoughts I had about this issue. The second time holding to long and positioning seem to cause it. Then after that normal sex for about 6 months. Then thrid time holding to long and positioning seemed to bring it on again. So normal sex other than maybe just holding out (slightly longer without any rough poositions or rough positioning without holding out long) for last few years with no problems.

Then then today which is the fourth time back to holding and rough positioning seem to make it happen again. Seems to be predictable now.

NOTE: When I say rough positioning I'm refering to bending in positions that it dont want to go.

So I'm wrapping my case with the conclusion that its some kinda of blood vessel somewhere in the system that gets distrubed during the erection, bad positioning and holding out to long.

ANOTHER NOTE: Anyone having similar problems with blood in the urine should consider these facts on how to tell where in the system the problem could be. First you should always see a doctor, they can rule out other problems. Second when urinating blood you should pay attention to exactly when the blood came out and density, if urine color is darker right away and fades and also in the semen after some form of sex then the problem may be similar to the posts here. If the blood comes out without any sexual contact seek a doctor, or if you seen clear urine for a second or 2 and it begins to turn to blood this could indicate problems further down the line like kidneys. This is some of the things the doctors told me.

Hope this post helps someone and I will keep my eye on it for new developments.

Thanks for starting this post it will probably help out more than the doctors.

Hi, my name is Charlie, im 23yo

    I have the same problems as mentioned above, it started 3yrs ago and has happened to me about 5 times. Ive had all the tests done and the only thing they can find is that my prostate is slightly larger than normal. I was on proscar for about five months but didnt feel it helped. The dr & the urologist say that im fine but im still worried. It just happened yesterday, I was watching porn with my girlfriend and was extremely aroused after a while of foreplay, suddenly I felt the urge to pee, I peed blood with blood clots the size of grapes then it just stopped and couldnt pee anymore (and felt pain). I forced myself to urine but still had trouble for about 10 minutes, so then I got hand soap & water and started rubbing my penis to make me feel the urge to pee, and it worked.. The last time that happend i went to the hospital ER because i kud not pee. They also put a catheter..had to wear it for about a week..(very painful)
  I just had sex with my girlfriend and nothing happend everything was normal. (that was strange) i was expecting the same from last night.. I think we should contact UCLA to do a research about our undiagnosed symptoms..I will try to call them tomorrow.               chrlie_0***@****  (under score zero)

I to have this problem, first time. Lots of blood in my sperm and sometimes a little at the start of my pee. This is day 4 after first noticing it. I would like to know if you don't get rid of the blood by (cumming) then won't it sit inside and clog up. I mean where else can it go if your bleeding? Is it better to leave it be or should it be cleaned out once a day ?

I'am a 67year old who recently started using a vacumn system to assist in achieving and mantaining an erection. The system uses a constriction band at the base of the penis in order to mantain the erection once it has been achieved.This keeps the blood in the penis, mantaining the erection until it is removed. The instruction book mentioned that the constriction band may not allow semen to pass until it was removed, even though orgasm was achieved. That has happened to me all three times I have used the system. However, I have also had blood in the semen and blood in my urine as well. First time the blood in my urine lasted about 24 hours in ever decreasing amounts. The second time, the blood in the urine lasted a much shorter duration. The last time I used a slightly larger constriction band. Some semen escaped on orgasm and the rest came out when I released the band, along with traces of blood. However, when I uninated there was no blood.
I will call the manufacturer of the system and ask about the blood, and if I get no answers I will see a urologist to ask the same question. However, common sense tells me what has happened is a pressure problem. The build up of blood pressure causing the erection combined with the pressure caused by the orgasm being constricted is causing some small veins in the system to rupture. I believe this will happen almost any time one tries to hold back an orgasm by any unnatural means. I can remember when I was a teen first experimenting with masterbation (masturbation) and I uesd something to prevent the semen from escaping when I had an orgasm. WhenI removed the device there was blood in my urine. Scared me to death and I never did it again.
My conclusion is that there is no disease or infection or any major problem, especially if you experience no blood in the urine at any other time than after orgasm. If I get any other definitive answer from the doctor or the manufacture of the device I will post again. Thanks to everyone else who has posted on this topic. For me,the aggragate of all the info has been helpful in reaching my conclusion.

Im 43 and expereinced pretty much everything above,  blood in Urine with clots directly after an sexual experince.  Even if I was just making out with my girlfriend, it occurs.  Drs are clueless.....It started after one night of heavy petting just 2 months ago...as we are obstaining from actual intercourse for religious reasons. Positioning could be a factor, and prolonged sustainment from ejacualtion may be a key as well.  I agree with Seeker01 and DocSam.  I will obstain for three weeks with out any sexual experince (even heavy petting)and will also use cold water treatment in area identified to see if the "rupture" can adequately heal. After such self treatment I will get back on line to post my results.  hope this helps

My husband (71) recently discovered blood in his semen and went to Dr for tests. There was also blood in his urine.
He was sent for Xrays and a scan. They showed that there was a growth on his kidney and that with this type of growth there was a 90% chance of it being cancer.
He has just returned home from having the whole kidney removed.
We will find out results in about 6 weeks time.
Thought I would mention this as one just never knows and it is best to be well informed.

Hi everyone...Im 33 and have been haveing this problem since I was 20.Im from connecticut and hearing everyones story that is just like mine makes me feel like im not alone.I have the exact same symptoms as everone else.About ten yrs ago I had all the same test done.Everything came back fine.And I went on with my life after that.In my mid twenties it happend again to me but I didnt go back to the docters.I went about five yrs without it happening again until recently.So i went back to the doctors about two weeks ago, he said that he was no stranger to this and not to worry and sent me to get checked for std's that might cause this....everything came back fine.He also said if it happend again he would refer me to a urologist.Well it happend again over the weekend.I went and seen the urologist today....who seemed like a great doctor.He examined me,stuck his finger you know where and said your prostate seems fine.This is very common and there is nothing to worry about.He said he thinks I just have an infection and put me on some very expensive medication that I have to take for a month.God I hope it works.I have this beautiful new girlfriend that i really dont want to tell this about.The only reason I have my doubt is because in my own personal expierience it seems it would only happend when havieng sex either too hard or trying to make myself ejaculate by going fast.There was one time that my x-girlfriend turned me on really bad without any sex at all and when I pee'd, red urine along with some clots came out.So my thinking is that something in side of me is ripped or something.But the doctor said no that is wasnt the case.So I said well if its only an infection then why has it never happend during masturbation....and I masturbate alot LOL He reaction was like really....and pretty much sent me on my way.IM Really starting to believe that I may have to live with this the rest of my life...but i hope not.If this medication works I will definitly let you know.

I have one question for somebody.Is there any of you who have had this problem for awhile(years) and everytime you get this after sex or do you have years were you dont have this problem like me.On and off

Has anybody had this after masturbation?

My husband had similar problems a few years ago. He had bloody specks in his sperm following ejaculation. He was devastated. Nothing wrong was found and his doc said it could have been a broken vessel. It was present for a few days and then went away.

Fella's I have had this happen know for 22 yrs. Well kinda of, I was in a very bad accident in 85 and and have had this ever since getting out of th hospital. Well I was married in 200 and went to Jemacca and started to have a good time (driking allot) and man I thought I was going to DIE by the amount of blood that I was losing, reluctant to got to the doctors in that country wateto get home to figure it out. Well I was refered to one of the top Uroligist in the country do to some good people in my life and LO an behold after many test and a finger were the sun does not shine. He then told me that My prostate was inlarged do to Dehydration (forgive my spelling) wich then he put me on some very strong antibiodics wich took car of the problem. Keep in mind this was after15 yrs of this happening.

    Yes during rough sex and some times being turned on and it rubbed hard from the other individual. allof the syptoms (symptoms) above.

    Well it has happened again after about 6 yrs of all good. So I wonder why? Well I have been taring it up allot lately (drinking) and I know that the infection is back because of having it for so long.

My advise is to ask for some very string antibiodics and to drink allot of WATER.

A will bet that this is what is going on in allot of these cases.

Mind you I AM NOT A DOCTOR butt these symptoms are almost exact what I have had. EVERY ONE OF YOU.


I really hope this helps you guys out because for 20 yrs I thought i was from my car accident and it was part of my life and delt with it until Jemacca.

I will be laying off the drinking for the most part and I WILL BE STAYING HYDRATED.

Thank goodness for all of you for posting your comments.  As you guessed I have this happen.  Scared isn't the word.  I've made an appointment for my PCP on Monday and I'm sure he will send me to a Urologist.  But I'm glad (sorry to say that!) that there are others with this issue.  

For reference I'm 47, average weight and built.  I have had intercourse twice in the past week.  Both times the first time I urinated afterwards I had blood in my urine.  Actually it was very red urine.  Both times the urine returned to normal after the initial urination.  The first time I had intercourse and thought maybe it was due to my wife just completing her period.  I didn't urinate until the next morning and was shocked to see it red.  I masterbated a couple of days later to see if that had blood and it was fine.  Also the urination afterwards was fine as far as I could tell.

The second time was 5 days later.  We had intercourse before going to sleep.  About an hour later I had to pee and stood in the dark and couldn't get the stream going.  Finally it burst forth and I shoot red urine all over the toilet and floor. I turned on the light and it wasn't a pretty sight.

Freaked me out to say the least which all of you will understand.  I will post again after getting some results but I do think it's critical to go to your doctor's.  I had an uncle die from PC and his sons, my cousins, have high PSA results.  Since he's not my biological uncle I haven't been concerned about my prostrate but will be getting it checked.

Thanks for everyone who has posted.

some years ago, I am 55 now, I had similar symptoms of blood in urine after long and vigorous sex.  Clots came out and then more blood than urine.  It took a few times of urination to clear up.  I went to urologist / no STDs...he found nothing and had no explantion.  Never saw blood after masturbating and abstinence for a couple of weeks solved the problem.  Two weeks ago, after a long session of sex, when I must have been erect for over one hour non-stop (no need for viagra or similar ;-)) I noticed blood in the condom before ejaculation...I freaked out...lots of clots etc.  A week later, I had sex again and this time it was for a shorter time i.e. erection was not that long in terms of time..., but again blood came into the condom before ejaculation and lots of clots...in fact I could initially not urinate....  I have decided to now abstain for two to three weeks  / in between I have masturbated but no blood appeared...but now I will try no masturbating either and see what happens...I am not going to the doctor as the previous time it was a waste of time and reading all these posts here has helped me feel a little 'more normal'.  Thanks to all for your comments!

I've been reading this forum for a few months and its the best resource on this condition that I can find. I'm in my mid twenties and have had this condition off and on for the last three years. My symptoms are very similar to what has already been mentioned so theres no need to go there. I would like to draw some attention to the cyclical aspect of this condition that I have experienced. I seem to have this happen for about 2 to 3 months every year. I have been trying to correlate it to something but I've had no luck. My thinking is that its mechanical in nature (ie pressure based tear) and that there is a semi irregular time period that is required to heal (thus the repeat episodes). Eventually the tear heals itself and everything is ok until the next time. Why do these 3 month episodes seem to happen every year? Who knows, I think its too simplistic to say that its rough sex or that its prolonging ejaculation. If that were the only prerequisite than I would have this condition all year all the time. There has to be something else that is a yet to be determined factor. As a parting question, I would like to know if any of you have taken any of the BHP medications such as Flomax in an attempt to ease the passage of clots. Maybe that becomes the first step in a treatment plan we can collectively develop.

Lets figure this thing out

I've this condition for the past 6 weeks. It is driving me nuts. After abstinence about 1 week, I was masturbating. After about 10minutes into it, I noticed thick blood leaking out and I freaked out. I immediately went to the toilet and pee lots of blood then clear urine. I then went to see a doc and did a urine test (positive for blood, thou appear clear). I was asked to take an xray (they suspect its stones). Xray turned out negative. Then I went for CT scan, which turned out negative also. Doc then did a prostate rectal check, found my prostate is inflammed, and put me on a 2 weeks antibiotics course on Doxycycline 100mg (twice a day). 4 days into the course, I masturbated and semen was clear, but I pee blood in the urine + a small clot. 7 days into the course, I masturbated and ejaculated blood, urine blood + some clots. Thus I went back to the doc and he did another prostate check, the inflammation was better and I was assured it was nothing. I continued the course. 10 days into the course, I tried masturbation again and normal. 13 days into the course, I tried masturbation again and normal. However on the 14th day, I pee blood in the morning and went back to the doc, who then did a prostate check and its normal. The antibiotics course was extended another week. I masturbated on the 16th day and it was normal. On the 19th day, I had a short foreplay with my spouse and went for dinner. After returning from dinner, I went toilet and pee thick blood + lots of clots.

I am seriously losing hope now. It is doing a lot of damage to my sex life. I am afraid of getting intimate with my spouse or masturbate.

I notice it will only appear with prolonged masturbation or when I am very aroused. Anyone has any solutions? I have not tried abstinence, but I will try it for 2weeks to see if it works.

I too have experienced the symptoms of blood in the semen and cuming blood; I'm in my early 50's and have been equally freaked out as everyone else on here (the freak out factor seems to be common regardless of age).

What it seems like we need to learn about is the experiences/research/data for the set of  men that have had these symptoms and are in their 70's.  I'm guessing they arent as internet/posting savy as the younger folks on this posting trail.  For example we only have one posting from a wife of a man in his 70's that described how her husband had similar symptoms and ended up having a growth that ended up with him having his kidney removed.  That sort of information amount men in their 70s seems to be anecdotal but causes me to wornder......

Is this a common occurance i.e gowths/problems/surgery in the kidneys (and related urology stuff) in a mans 70's  highly correlated to earlier symptoms in years 20's to 50's?   Has any research been done on the correlations of these symptoms and serious urology related issues/surgeries in the range of post 60's?  Any actuaries, epidemiologists or medical researchers out there that know is this data/analysis is available and has been done?

I forgot to add to my post found here:

http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/328287

that blood was occasionally in my semen, and sometimes pinkish drops at the end of urination.  All of my problems went away when I quit using powdered artificial sweeteners (the yellow and blue packets / Aspartame & Splenda).  I use Sweet and Low exclusively now, and all of my problems have gone away.  It's been 2 years since I made the switch.

My theory is that the two offending powders are just too synthetic for the body to know what to do with.  For some reason, the body decides clumping it all up and putting it out through the penis is the way to go.

One more thing - I was at McDonald's last week and got a coffee.  For some reason, they don't have Sweet and Low, which I would have used (see my post above).  I said what the heck and dumped 3 packets of Nutrasweet in my coffee.  The next day, I masturbated and I had a near retrograde ejaculation (I can feel how stopped up I am), and afterward I had a burning sensation for about an hour - the feeling that I needed to pee, but of course didn't - but the feeling was so strong I stood over the toilet "letting go" even though there was no urine.

But the burning feeling cleared in an hour, and I learned my lesson - don't use Splenda or Aspartame, no exceptions, ever.   There is a direct correlation between my use of powdered Nutrasweet and powdered Splenda, and symptoms.  When I use them, I have symptoms, when I stop, I don't.

There are so many guys suffering clumped and/or bloody semen and wondering what the cause is, I swear there should be a huge class action lawsuit, and force them to stop putting such horrible products on the market.

I've known the dread of seeing what might come out at climax, it's a very anxious moment.  Take my advice, guys, dump the blue and yellow packets.

I'd love to see responses here after you give it a try.

My simptoms are simular to many other earlier posts, no pain, no lumps, everything seemingly normal apart from this:

Just over three weeks ago, i first got a trickle of blood after ejaculating, urine was clear apart from a small blob of clot that popped out mid way through the urinating.
This happened almost every time i ejaculated since - maybe 6 times, (all masturbation).
Looking for a pattern i realised that the times i saw blood were the times i held back - by holding the sperm back with my thumb and finger until i grabbed some tissue. Sorry for such details but these are just the facts. Anyway, since then i let the sperm flow and empty as it came and i have not seen blood since. Maybe too early to jump to any conclusions but it makes a bit of sense to me that some kind of back pressure could cause some thing like this. Though i have held back MANY times in the past and never seen blood prior to three weeks ago.Whats changed in me since? I'm 33.

In my case, the cause of the blood in my sperm turned out to be an inflammation from a simple "all-around" bacteria, which disappeared one day after using the proper anti-biotics. However, it kept returning.
I figured out it was because of a bad habit: after peeing, I used to "clean" the head of my **** by spitting on it. However, that seems to have caused the inflammations. Since I stopped with that (2 years ago), the problem has never returned.

Its been a while since I last commented. I wanted to touch base with the group and provide an update. Last time I commented I was in the midst of a terrible episode that had lasted off and on for 5 months. Constant trips to the ER, constant fear of bleeding and not being able to **** etc. Twice I was scheduled for a cystoscopy but canceled it both times because I was affraid to have a camera stuck up my ****. I strongly requested a trans rectal ultra sound to image the seminal vessicles, but my doctor was an arrogant ***** and refused to consider that course of action. I haven't had any problems for the last few months which is a great thing. I have come to reaffirm my belief that this is by and large a pneumatic problem that comes from excess pressure before ejaculation. Over the years I had become a guy who could **** for hours and not *** a drop. I think I may have done some damage to the valve system by continually stopping ejaculations over the years. My quick advice would be this... try not to delay ejaculation by internal means. If you need to last longer, put a second condom on or something that allows you to **** with out needing to clench down and stop ejaculation. Also, investigate drugs such as flomax to see if they will ease the passage of clots.

I am a 17 year old male.  I had blood in my urine and a clot after I masterbated.... This has happend to me twice so far and the second time it was a bigger clot thing than the last time.  Its only been two weeks since my last eppisode.  Um to tell u the truth it freeks me out,  I'm also freaked out that all of you are like 20-40 years old, I'm the yungest person here and well i'm scared...  I went to the doc the first time it happend, I didnt realize it was after I masterbated that I peed blood, The only reason I realized it now is becouse I have blood in my sperm, I didnt have a lot of blood in my sperm but I did have blood in my sperm so yea.  I'm freaked out and I dont wana go to the doc cuz It sounds like they wont know what the hell is going on anyway and my family doesnt exactly have alot of money to spare.  I think this may be from masterbateing too many times in a week or in the past year...  If thats the case then maybe not masterbateing at all for a time will fix it for good....

I hope so......

I had all of the same symptoms that most of the posters listed and it started 6 years ago.  I really think stress has a lot to do with it.  6 years ago my girlfriend and I split up and I had a very stressful job working 12 hours a day six days a week.  That is when it first started.  As a matter of fact, the stress got so bad I went to the doctors thinking I was having heart trouble, which seemed odd since I worked out regularly and was only 34.  She gave me a bunch of tests and said I was completely fit but was suffering from anxiety and stress from the job and relationship and prescibed an antidepressant (Paxil).  After a short period, about a couple of months, I was reunited with my girlfriend and was careful not to let the job get to me and my symptons of the bloody ejaculations cleared up.

I did not have the problem again until just recently.  In the last 2 years I started my own business and the stress levels associated with getting new clients and ones that pay on time couple by a second breakup with my girlfriend, which I have been taking very hard, it all started again.  That is why I started searching again for information and landed on this site.  I think it is a combination of stress, diet, alcohol and whatever else that may run your body down that makes you a target.  Then you trigger it with a very vigorous sexual encounter and some damage may occur.  In both incidences I recall having a very rigorous sexual encounter before the symptoms surfaced.  Then once they started i was more prone to have it until it went away.

I think everyone should consider the state of their stress levels at the time it first started to see if there is a trend.  The added stress once you have the symptoms justs makes it worse.  I would recommend trying to relax, explain it to your partner (even show her this website) and just try to get yourself in a peaceful state.  That is what cleared me up the first time and I am going to try it again.  Good luck to all of you.  It could be a good reminder for all of us to take good care of ourselves both physically and mentally!

So, no one really knows what causes this? And it really never goes away??

I have started having a similar thing happen to me, about the past 3-4 days. I have been working out excessively harder than I normally have in the past, and have been wondering if that is what the problems is...that I have ruptured something...

I ejaculated blood about two days ago...it's very runny....no clotting....and then again this morning, the same thing happened. There is no blood in my urine, only in my semen...and really, doesn't even seem to be much semen coming out...only blood...thank god I really have no sex life, because this would definitely put a damper on it.

I have not gone to the doctor yet...am waiting to see if it clears up on it's own.

If any of you have any suggestions, feel free to email me at ***@****...

I am a little freaked out by this whole thing...

I just hope it goes away!

I have suffered from these symptoms since 1998 following a half marathon. I had a vasectomy about 2 months earlier but I don't think it is necessarily connected.  Nothing much to add other that I have been prescribed both Proscar and Avodart in an attempt to reduce the bleeding. Limited success with either and with the symptoms now recurring every 6 months or so and continuing for about 6 months at a time I am unwilling to stop the tablets fearing that it will happen every time. Proscar seems to work best.
I was led to believe that I was in some way unique so I would advise everyone to send a link to this site to their Consultants/Doctors to show them that this is real, awful and needs some attention now. I for one would like my sex life back.
Good luck to all in finding a cure and

Fellas, thanks, for sharing your experiences.  I have been dealing with this problem for almost 23 years, first in 1985 when I was 19. I am now 41 and experiencing a reoccurrence of hematospermia.   It's really hard because I've been married for less than a month. However, my wife is very understanding.

At his point, my doctors still have no clue.  I have had many work-ups and tests, but I usually call it quits after the symptoms resolve.  I'm going back to my urologist because of my recent episode and I'm going to try and push as far as I can to get an answer on this dilemma.  Again, thanks, for sharing your experiences with this malady, and I hope everyone fares well with it.

I am 35, married and monogamous for 17 years (no STDs), and have experienced this several times in the last 5 years.

Blood in the semen during ejaculation; sexual intercourse or masturbation - happens either way.
No pain.
Afterwards, bright red blood in the urine. After a few hours, during the next urination, the stream is tinged brown (old blood) until the clot passes (rather uncomfortable), after which the stream is again bright red.
Urination is clear again after that.

(As someone advised earlier, definitely do not wait too long; the longer the clot is allowed to sit, the more difficult it is to dislodge and pass - if you've ejaculated some blood, start drinking lots of water right away; pee as much and as often as you can to minimize the clotting. That icepack idea probably isn't a bad idea either, though I have no experience with that myself.)

This can happen even without ejaculating; if I've simply had a very hard erection.

I am convinced that it has to do with pressure and broken tissue.

When it happens after sex, it's been vigorous sex. When I masturbate, I've long had the habit of holding back my ejaculation, prolonging the session.


Even if I abstain from sex or masturbation for a while to allow it to heal, and even if I attempt to exercise control over my arousal while I am awake, it's impossible for me to pass a night without having a spontaneous erection. Hell, I wake up with one every morning.
Even in a case such as that, on at least one occasion it was
high-enough-pressured" that I had blood in my urine and the whole subsequent clot business (though this was a day or two after having the "usual" start, so I was still in "healing mode").


I have not been to see a doctor about it, because I already know I won't get any really useful help, and I can't presently afford a battery of tests for things that I probably don't have.

I've broken a rib before, but I didn't see a doctor about it. They would have simply told me what I already know; how to take care of it, to take it easy, etc. Nothing useful to be gained from a doctor's opinion on it.

Same with this, at least in my case.

It's right annoying, to be sure. I've experienced this about once every year or two, and I've no idea what else to do except to accept the possibility that I may be one of those men (and here we are, eh?) who happens to have slightly weaker or "more prone to tearing" internal tissue between my urethra and my corpus cavernosa or my prostate, and that I just have to learn to take it easy on myself so I don't break something and let blood enter my urinary tract.

Cheers, mates!

Anyone of you got hemophilia? Do the test, who knows.
Here's my story.

For aproximately 10 years I have had problems with blood in my urine and/or semen.
But it is more severe then any cases I have read on the net and worst of all is that my urologist cannot find anything.
I can not remember how many exactly urologist have work on mine, but the last urologist was a profesor the best in country.
.... and he totally failed.

Everytime I attempt to have intercourse or just being aroused follow by an erection (even for short period),
I'll get blood in my urine.
I was still single when this bloody things start happen, I was 29 years old.
The period based on my experience is average once a year (max 2 years and min 6 months).
When it happen, normally it will take couple weeks (max 3 months) to heal until back to normal again.
Thanks god because my wife do understand my problem.

Doctor always found me healthy other than this issue and now I am currently 39 with 4 kids.
I have gone thru 3 cystoscopy's, camera inserted into my femeral artiry to take a look and they found nothing.
Also I have had some X-Ray, biopsi, etc..... all the standard testing procedure I guess.

Actualy I can feel when there will be blood or not because I can feel that something leaking inside.
Sometimes if I realize that I am completly blocked up then I have to drink a lot of water to get the blockage to pass.
This is a very painful and if I can not get it to pass then the other option is going to the hospital for help.

After all the clots out I will urinate normal again.... no blood with bare eyes.

Two years ago I tried my luck with another profesor, he is specialized in blood problem including blood cancer.
His suggestion to me was to take factor VIII and IX blood test, it's a hemophilia test.

Surprise, they found me guilty..... my factor VIII result is only 39% while the normal value 70%-100%.
So I talk with my mam and dad, they confirm none in our family got hemophilic.......????

Doctor inject me with KOATE, anti hemophilic factor and...... a day after injection I'm completely normal.
Sex is no longer become my problem, it's a beautiful life.

But last week, I got blood again..... after 2 fucken years.

I decide to see him again and get injection but problem persist...... no result at all.
OK, blood test again......factor VIII and IX...... fantastic result because my blood completely normal.
He confuse.... I confuse..... now, sex is nighmare again.
The only possible things according this profesor is, I have bad trauma sometime in the past.
Part of my brain agree because I did have couple bad trafic accident in the past.... but how can no one in this earth could not fix my problem?

Hopefully in the next couple weeks this bloody things will disappear..... my wife is waiting.

Avatar_n_tn
First, this is the best site on the internet for this problem.  I'm 52, married with one child, and have suffered from the same symptoms as many others have described for about 15 years.  My history has been fairly constant:  About two or three episodes each year.  

Having some history with it, I now routinely (and discreetly) check for blood in my semen after intercourse.  This is most often accomplished by squeezing my penis and drawing a small amount of semen to the tip, which generally reveals if there is any pinkish hue, thus indicating blood.  

Immediately upon detecting blood, I realize as others have, that I need to urinate very soon or suffer large and difficult clots later that can be very difficult to pass.  First urination after an episode typically reveals a heavy amount of blood mixed with urine, and the color is very red.  It would be easy for someone to mistakingly believe this to be pure blood.  A clot or two will often pass at this time, as well, usually without issue.  It is when I fail to urinate immediately after intercourse, and wait until the next morning, for example, that problems can ensue.  On several occasions the resultant blockage has resulted in my coming close to going to the hospital to have a catheter inserted to allow me to urinate.

Following the first, and sometimes the second urination (which will be the color of ice tea), my urine will flow clear.  During a bad bought, I will be susceptible to additional bleeding from simple arousal, which can occur during the day, but more typically during sleep.  These subsequent 'arousal' episodes rarely result in large clots, unless the arousal is other than incidental and, instead prolonged, as in foreplay.  As described by at least one other on this board, I also believe that the site of the lesion or tear results in blood backing up and into the bladder.  The amount of blood in the semen is generally not great; the real drama comes when you urinate and what seems to be a significant amount of blood issues forth.

Like others, I have desperately attempted to recollect and self-diagnose the circumstances leading up to each incident.  Theory after theory is belied by differing pre-incident conditions.  I've been to numerous doctors, including the prestigious UCLA Medical Center (in 1996) only to be met with baffled looks, sympathetic staff, and cover-your-*** tests that invariably reveal nothing at all.

As to cures and remedies, I've tried many, including antibiotics.  Nothing has ever worked apart from 12-14 days of abstinence.  No masturbation, no foreplay, and obviously no intercourse during this period.  For those that say that antibiotics are the answer, my guess is that given the 10-day course of treatment, they would have experienced a recovery without the drugs.  I doubt that this is an infection inasmuch as the bleeding occurs only following an erection.

If I had to speculate, my guess would be that this is a vesicular rupture, and that these cases are not aggravated by 'rough' sex or any specific injury, per se.  Rather, I believe that the vesicle heals over the course of time, and then, perhaps, weakens and becomes susceptible to another incident weeks or months or years later.  In my case, it's about every four to six months consistently for the past decade and a half.  It has never occurred during masturbation (except subsequent to an event), but rather during intercourse.  I can only surmise that pressure placed upon the penis during coitus has some role in the injury.  

Having researched this extensively, coupled with now many discussions with physicians and specialists, I am convinced that this is an as-yet undiagnosed illness in need of some serious research.  Given the fact that the condition is self-limited, and desists spontaneously, it would be reasonable to speculate that the population of males that suffer from this malady is far greater than is believed by the medical community.  Many sufferers probably see the symptoms disappear after a week or two, and relieved, shrug it off and never see a physician.

However, the physiological and psychological impact this has on the individual - and their partner - is profound.  One thing is certain:  You need to have a very sympathetic wife or partner, which I have.  Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread; for those of you seeking medical attention, I would highly recommend that you refer your doctor to this site so that they can have a better appreciation of how wide spread condition actually is.

I am a 31 year old black male and I have been suffering from these same simptoms for about 10 years. I too went to the doctor and was told it was some unknown infection. He gave me an antibiotic and said it would go away. It did for about a year. I am in agreement that it is some sort of vessel damage or weakness in the penis or ejaculation tubes. I would love to find a cure because it is hard to expain to your lover why you are bleeding when you don't even know why yourself. I am glad I found this web site. It is conforting to know that I am not alone. If you have this problem don't be afraid to speak on it. The more that it is talked about the more attention it will demand.

Would have to agree with everyone that this problem seems to be brought on by sex or even arousal which is as we will all agree is a real problem cause were men we all love sex!!

All my tests are coming back normal which draws me to the same conclusion as the most of you guys that I will need to lay off the sex for a while to allow myself to heal (lets face it if you pull a muscle you rest it in  exactly the same way)!! So with this in mind I'm gonna masturbate for the last time for the next 3 weeks just to check the theory that masturbation does not seem to bring the bleeding and clotting on as much as full on sex and then I'll let you know my findings.

Take it easy guys and maybe take up knitting or something so you can keep your mind on something productive for the three weeks off!!!

Alright...male, 22, healthy and similar symptoms as all of you, after masterbation (masturbation) I noticed blood in my sperm, freaked me out, went to the doctor and had the urine and blood tests, no STD's and he said that I have small traces of bacteria in my urine. After the initial ejaculation I was scared to do it again but did just to see what would happen, this time the blood seemed a lot thicker and and stringy also. Went to the doctor the next day which is today and he is sending me to a Urologist tomorrow. I also do not seem to have any blood in my urine but it does seem darker then usual, as if I'm really dehydrated, I will keep you posted and reading these cases really makes me less worried, thanks for the support group.

Has anyone heard about seminal vessel amiloidosis?

I've read the first 20 or so posts and scanned the rest, I'll read them later, but has anyone considered that aspirin might be linked to this condition ? Until this started with me a couple of months ago I was taking an aspirin every day along with my vitamins. Not baby aspirin, regular aspirin. What an idiot I was. Now I can't even floss my teeth without spitting out tons of blood. My blood is so thin I'm planning to make liver and onions a regular weekly meal as a way to thicken it back up, and I'm considering donating blood so my body will have to make more, which I believe might also help thicken my blood. Based on what I've observed in my own experiences,I believe the problem is caused by tearing in the urethra, or somewhere around that vicinity, and I also believe the blood isn't coming from the prostate gland. If it were, I'd think I'd be bleeding all the time, and not just after sex. In my case, the urine turns red about 24 hours after sex, and stays red until the clot is passed. Then my urine goes back to looking normal. I've urinated into jars and compared them to see what each session's urine looks like. Once I even caught a blood clot in a jar. I bought a cheap strainer at a doolar store and laid the clot out on a piece of paper to see what it was, and it seemed to be a combination of blood and semen that had formed into a gelatinous, wormlike thing. The last one came out in the toilet and actually looked like a big worm. There's never been any pain associated this condition, just some understandable anxiety, and annoyance. My theory is easy tearing and bleeding caused by years of too much aspirin in my system, which occurs only after sex. I'm also trying drinking aloe vera juice, which can be purchased at a health food store like GNC. I'm thinking that if aloe vera is so good at helping topical cuts heal, taking it internally might help the urethra wall heal, too. The last thing I want is urethra obstruction caused by scarring, so I'm trying to come up with ideas on how to ejaculate without vigorously working my penis. Any suggestions on that ? I may be wrong, but I believe regular ejaculation is good for the prostate gland, so even though I like it just because it feels good, regular ejaculation, in my humble opinion,  is necessary. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. I want to thank all you guys who've posted here. Finding this site has eased my anxiety quite a bit, and confirmed what I think is going on. I've had enough contact with the medical community over the last 15 years taking care of my aging parents to know that a lot of those guys have no clue what to do with a lot of their patients, and I have no intention of getting a lot of stupid, expensive tests just to find out this problem is just a nusiance that needs to be managed. Thanks !!!

Similar problems (nothing shows on any test but the blood on the sperm), so, I'll just give some highlights:

- When I had this with 24 years old, it went away after some pills (dunno what they were) and 2 weeks of abstinence.
- Now I have it again (38). I think the cause was a UTI (which is gone by now). PCP gave me only 7 days of antibiotics... idiot (from what I read, bacteria may hide in prostate --> now I may have prostatitis).
- Urologist finds blood in urine (microscopic) and nothing else. He sends me for a CT scan without any other previous tests. I think he knows that nothing will find the reason and he only wants to make sure that there is nothing more serious (cancer). If I had the choice again I wouldn't do the scan (tons of unnecessary radiation when everything is pointing to some kind of inflamation (inflammation) from the UTI) :(
- BTW, 2 weeks abstinence didn't help this time.
- The scanner showed, though, that my seminal vesicles are very large and he prescribed me Avodart for a month. I didn't even take the first pill and semen came clean (without having done any abstinence), for 10 days (masturbated 6 or 7 times during that period...). He recommended me to still take the pills, so, I did, but stopped after the first 7 days (you got 3% chance of impotence with those pills). Yesterday I got blood again in sperm, so, I will take the rest of the pills but I think it is completely uncorrelated (at least to the pills).
- Just one more thing: my brother had this for 2 years. Doctor said to do nothing and it finally went away, but took 2 years! And the same doctor told him not to worry about abstinence or anything, so, my brother didn't stopped... Not saying one way or the other is the right thing, just giving one more data point.

I'll keep you posted if the results from the Avodart...

I have the same problem.  In the first stages of testing, but now I don't really think I need to have tests that get more and more invasive.  I haven't noticed blood in my urine, but I bleed out during sleep.  It's happened twice so far after sex.  There are spots of blood on my sheets.  Never any other time.  Ejaculation is painful and the first time I urinate after sex is painful.  It then just goes away.  It's not painful every time I have sex either.  I guess I'll keep looking here to see if any break throughs occur.  Now I don't know if I should go to my next appointment, it's going to be the same things as described above.

Just to let you know that the Avodart seems to be working. A bit of background (you can see my previous post):

I had blood in sperm and in the urine. I think basically I had a UTI, but not sure if that was the only thing. I remember holding the ejaculation for pretty long (>1 hour) and when I came it felt weird. Anyhow, after that (same week) I had the UTI, got antibiotics for few days and that maybe took care of that part, but the blood in sperm was still there.

Went to the urologist and he made a CT scan with the excuse that blood in the urine is not normal. I hate that part because he basically gave me the radiation of 10 years of my life. MORON! I guess the blood was still left from the UTI as the scan didn't show anything else but that the seminal vesicles were very big. He gave me the Avodart. After 20 days, the sperm start coming more and more clear. After 30 is murky, almost white (perfect). The Avodart finished 5 days ago or so, and everything seems getting better. He said that it may be a slow progression till fully  clear after the Avodart is finished.

Anyhow, I'll keep you posted. The cause may be the same as some of you mentioned (holding the ejaculation, which I haven't done lately), but maybe the effect (what is broken) is different, because in my case I never had the clots issue...

By the way, I created an Excel chart tracking the progression, with all the stuff that could be affecting, logged day by day. It may be a good thing to do, to get some statistics on the subject (look for common causes, correlation between events/medication/etc...). If anybody interested post something here and I'll figure out a way to make it public for you to use...

Good luck!

There is 3 things that can cause this too happen 1. Can be bacteria, 2. Stroking your penis aggressively during sex or bending it in ways that it should be bent.. and 3. Damage too your large blood vessels in your penis which is the same as number 2... The best thing too do is lay off the sex for a week or 2. I know it sounds crazy but you may have too do that. Whenever you feel that the clot is real thick and is hard too come out drink water. When the clot is thick the water will soften up the walls of the uretha and will allow the clot and blood to flow threw. Another helpful hint is too monitor your scrotums (balls) if they are sagging even through cold weather chances is the situation is still there. Drink cranberry juice cause it helps too get bacteria out your system and use an icebag too cool down your private area. The icebag will isolates the muscle tissue such as the uretha and will heal the torn ligament if the bleeding is caused from aggressivley stroking of the penis. This information is not a cure but just ways of helping you. If there's any cures out there for the situation please share. Or email me at ***@**** even if it is too chat about the situation or any questions...

Thanks for sharing your experiences.  To be honest, it happened to me tonight, two hours ago. I freaked out and started searching help on line and found this thread.

Me 34, male. I found blood in my semen when ejaculating. Then found blood in urine afterward when peeing. A small clot was found in urine too.  The second time I pee, the urine was iced tea color.  

Should I go see a doctor tomorrow morning? I know I will drink a lot of water but unsure of what else I need to do now...

Thanks everyone.

i recently have conducted the same condition as listed above by many others. unlike most of the stories i have read, i do not get blood clots in my urine after i masturbate, but there is blood in my semen. Does not having blood in your urine mean something different? Im really freaked out but after reading this forum ive been reassured that its not really anything serious, i experience no pain afterward during etc. im 15years old, healthy 130pounds and my diet is pretty standard and healthy. i was abstenent for a week but after i masturbated again and again blood came out has anyone else not had blood in their urine?

Noticed a couple drops after urinating, twice today, same symptoms as Khan1. Happens with masturbation. Just wanted to see what's up. Thanks for the reassurance guys.

It looks like this is a very common thing, given the number of responses and the popularity of this topic. I'll give an update if the problem persists but I'm really hoping it won't.

Hello everyone,

I am a 36 year old male.

I have had the exact same thing happen to me.  Lately during and after every time I have intercourse, but usually not from masturbation.  The first time was extremely disconcerting, I pulled out and noticed blood, and a lot of it, in the condom.  The girl noticed it first actually and said "oh my god, are you ok?" to which I replied "Hell no!".  Fortunately this sounds less serious than the heart attack and nervous breakdown I almost had right after.

I went in to the ER here and the Dr prescribed antibiotics (at first told me it was an STD but I always use protection, even for oral sex, and then he later told me it was not an STD but rather a UTI caused by some sort of nameless bacteria).  For the next few days there was blood even when I was not aroused which added even more to the stress.  I later went to a different doctor and actually got the urine test results myself to go over (no bacteria or infection present).  I am living and working in a 3rd world country at the moment and do not trust the doctors here at all so I did the research myself.  The antibiotics first prescribed inhibit absorption of vitamin k, deficiencies of which can make your blood thinner and cause bleeding.  I had a serious accident a while back and had to have my lower leg reconstructed with muscle from my upper leg.  Because of the muscle graft I take a baby aspirin daily and also take a drug called Pentoxifylline which is a sort of blood thinner that makes your red blood cells smaller and more arrow dynamic so that they can pass through smaller areas (like small new blood vessels forming in a muscle graft or congested arteries around your heart).  When reading up on the antibiotic it said that someone on blood thinners should not be taking it (cifixime was the name I think).  Of course the doctors never mentioned that at all...  So be careful about which antibiotics you take when you have a condition like this.  After I stopped taking them the bleeding that was occurring without intercourse stopped; however, I still have it during and after intercourse.

A few things I have noticed and thought about while reading this forum is that I think it might be happening for me during the intercourse and not masturbation because it is rougher and also prolonged.  When I have been masturbating since the first incident it has just been quick pleasure-less tests to see if there is any blood.  Though there was one incident after I had a massage during which I was aroused.  After the massage I did masturbate and there was a small amount of blood in the semen and more blood in my urine right after (including clots).

I have also noticed it happen more if I have been drinking alcohol before having intercourse.

I do also have an enormous amount of stress in my job which could be contributing as well.  If the stress raises my blood pressure it could make it more difficult for a tear to heal.

I am also wondering now if this may have started with the catheter that was inserted while I was in the ICU after my accident...  Could it have been a tear caused by having the tube inserted which lead to scar tissue that is easier to rip again?

I am going to try the abstinence thing for 3 or 4 weeks and also the ice pack.  I am also going to try some vitamin k as well as some other vitamins to help lower stress levels (calcium and magnesium with vitamin d and b).  My diet is usually pretty good, unless I am out in the jungle or mountains for work as food is often scarce and I end up eating what the locals eat (which is not nutritious at all in my opinion).  So I am going to start making sure I have proper food packed along with me (even power bars or the like if I have to) and also eat foods know to strengthen vein walls, like blueberries.  And of course, drink lots and lots of water.

I also wanted to say that I really appreciate this forum.  This is an extremely stressful thing to happen, and when the doctors can't tell you what it is and there is little information available, it is even worse.  It helps a lot to know that others are going through the same thing and that it is not life threatening serious or the like.  I also really appreciate the advice and ideas posted here.  Thanks

A few things I have noticed and thought about while reading this forum is that I think it might be happening for me during the intercourse and not masturbation because it is rougher and also prolonged.  When I have been masturbating since the first incident it has just been quick pleasure-less tests to see if there is any blood.  Though there was one incident after I had a massage during which I was aroused.  After the massage I did masturbate and there was a small amount of blood in the semen and more blood in my urine right after (including clots).

I have also noticed it happen more if I have been drinking alcohol before having intercourse.

I do also have an enormous amount of stress in my job which could be contributing as well.  If the stress raises my blood pressure it could make it more difficult for a tear to heal.

I am also wondering now if this may have started with the catheter that was inserted while I was in the ICU after my accident...  Could it have been a tear caused by having the tube inserted which lead to scar tissue that is easier to rip again?

I am going to try the abstinence thing for 3 or 4 weeks and also the ice pack.  I am also going to try some vitamin k as well as some other vitamins to help lower stress levels (calcium and magnesium with vitamin d and b).  My diet is usually pretty good, unless I am out in the jungle or mountains for work as food is often scarce and I end up eating what the locals eat (which is not nutritious at all in my opinion).  So I am going to start making sure I have proper food packed along with me (even power bars or the like if I have to) and also eat foods know to strengthen vein walls, like blueberries.  And of course, drink lots and lots of water.

I also wanted to say that I really appreciate this forum.  This is an extremely stressful thing to happen, and when the doctors can't tell you what it is and there is little information available, it is even worse.  It helps a lot to know that others are going through the same thing and that it is not life threatening serious or the like.  I also really appreciate the advice and ideas posted here.  Thanks

I am going to try the abstinence thing for 3 or 4 weeks and also the ice pack.  I am also going to try some vitamin k as well as some other vitamins to help lower stress levels (calcium and magnesium with vitamin d and b).  My diet is usually pretty good, unless I am out in the jungle or mountains for work as food is often scarce and I end up eating what the locals eat (which is not nutritious at all in my opinion).  So I am going to start making sure I have proper food packed along with me (even power bars or the like if I have to) and also eat foods know to strengthen vein walls, like blueberries.  And of course, drink lots and lots of water.

I also wanted to say that I really appreciate this forum.  This is an extremely stressful thing to happen, and when the doctors can't tell you what it is and there is little information available, it is even worse.  It helps a lot to know that others are going through the same thing and that it is not life threatening serious or the like.  I also really appreciate the advice and ideas posted here.  Thanks

Hello everyone,

I am a 36 year old male.

I have had the exact same thing happen to me.  Lately during and after every time I have intercourse, but usually not from masturbation.  The first time was extremely disconcerting, I pulled out and noticed blood, and a lot of it, in the condom.  The girl noticed it first actually and said "oh my god, are you ok?" to which I replied "Hell no!".  Fortunately this sounds less serious than the heart attack and nervous breakdown I almost had right after.

I went in to the ER here and the Dr prescribed antibiotics (at first told me it was an STD but I always use protection, even for oral sex, and then he later told me it was not an STD but rather a UTI caused by some sort of nameless bacteria).  For the next few days there was blood even when I was not aroused which added even more to the stress.  I later went to a different doctor and actually got the urine test results myself to go over (no bacteria or infection present).  I am living and working in a 3rd world country at the moment and do not trust the doctors here at all so I did the research myself.  The antibiotics first prescribed inhibit absorption of vitamin k, deficiencies of which can make your blood thinner and cause bleeding.  I had a serious accident a while back and had to have my lower leg reconstructed with muscle from my upper leg.  Because of the muscle graft I take a baby aspirin daily and also take a drug called Pentoxifylline which is a sort of blood thinner that makes your red blood cells smaller and more arrow dynamic so that they can pass through smaller areas (like small new blood vessels forming in a muscle graft or congested arteries around your heart).  When reading up on the antibiotic it said that someone on blood thinners should not be taking it (cifixime was the name I think).  Of course the doctors never mentioned that at all...  So be careful about which antibiotics you take when you have a condition like this.  After I stopped taking them the bleeding that was occurring without intercourse stopped; however, I still have it during and after intercourse.

A few things I have noticed and thought about while reading this forum is that I think it might be happening for me during the intercourse and not masturbation because it is rougher and also prolonged.  When I have been masturbating since the first incident it has just been quick pleasure-less tests to see if there is any blood.  Though there was one incident after I had a massage during which I was aroused.  After the massage I did masturbate and there was a small amount of blood in the semen and more blood in my urine right after (including clots).

I have also noticed it happen more if I have been drinking alcohol before having intercourse.

I do also have an enormous amount of stress in my job which could be contributing as well.  If the stress raises my blood pressure it could make it more difficult for a tear to heal.

I am also wondering now if this may have started with the catheter that was inserted while I was in the ICU after my accident...  Could it have been a tear caused by having the tube inserted which lead to scar tissue that is easier to rip again?

Hi
Welcome to the forum!
Blood in semen or hematospermia can be due several causes like  benign or malignant tumors of the prostate, bladder, testes, or seminal vesicles; infections like chlamydia, herpes, cytomegalovirus, and trichomoniasis, prostatitis, epididymitis, or urethritis;  stone in the seminal vesicles or prostate; polyps in the urethra, obstructions in ejaculation-duct, and cancers of genitourinary system. If there is a history of contact, then you need to get a complete STD panel done. Get a culture sensitivity test for both semen and urine done. Please consult an urologist or take another opinion if you have already consulted one . Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

well i'm both relieved and depressed to find this site. Relieved to find I'm not the only one in the world but depressed to find out how little anybody knows about this condition.
I've been living with this for 10 years and i'm OVER it. I have all the standard symptoms but differ in 2 ways.
First is how it started, 10years back on my 35th birthday, yip great present ah!, I was happily banging my girlfriend from behind when I slipped out d butted my penis into her. I got back in and finished the job then found blood in the condom, freaked out a little but not too bad, until my first wee when I had my first bloody urine and clot passing experience, then I totally freaked. So mine started with an accident rather than just occuring.
Since then its happened pretty much every time with intercourse, but not masterbation (masturbation), but the severity is dependant on the level of arousal.  I had all the checks inclucing csytoscopy which resulted in nothing, eventually my urologist shrugged his shoulders and gave up.
About a year ago my partner and I slpilt up and I didn't have sex for 1 year maybe more, believe it or not. So when I recently had sex with a new woman I can't tell you how up set I was to ejaculate blood worse than ever, still cant belive it didn't heal in 1 year off sex!
Having sex twice more in the last few weeks the bleeding just gets worse, in the last episode my urine got blocked and bright red blood was dripping out of my penis, very scary.  
And here is the 2nd point, I can pee blood or red urine for 3 or 4 times until it clears, not just once, leading me to believe that the bleeding is still countinuing.
I'm off to a new urologist next week for what I now believe( having read this site) to probably be a pointless waste of money. He has put me on Finasteride or Proscar. Has anyone had any luck with this drug?
I believe that doc and specialists just give up when they can't find an answer and go back to less troublesome patients. My GP(ex) told me to harden up and handle it, what's a little bit of blood!   This has stopped my sex life, I feel like half a man, now have depression to deal with as well, WE need to find an answer cause nobody else is.   Good luck to all, if I find anything from down here I will post it here.

Hi!


@all:

Suffering from the same condition.

I agree that the condition depends on the level of arousal.

But I can't confirm any correlation to abstinence (neither masturbation nor 'real' sex). In fact I once had this condition for a whole month and masturbated feverishly and had blood admixture all the time. But after that month it vanished until the next period a few month later.

Also I found that girls usually can relate better if you compare the condition to nose bleeding.

@nakiboy: You mentioned 1 year of abstinence on sex. Could you give a an indication of how often you masturbated during that time?

Thanks and googl luck to all.

Hi guys i can relate to what you all are going through i first saw this symtom when i was 18 year old and have been living with it ever since.its a bacteria that lives deep within the prostrate and i just found out after years of living with it that it has to be treated for at least 6weeks to make sure it is totally gone am 37 now and am on floxstat i think the gerneric in the USA would be ofloxcin.what happens is that when you get arouse the bacteria flares up the prostrate and when the sperm or the urine flows through it picks up the blood hence blood in semen blood in urine.now you would see a clear semen if you just straight ejaculate with out being arouse not causing a flare up.make sure you guys get treated and not just ejaculating just to see if its gone those blood clot are serious they can cause blockage if it dont come out, lets just say you guys have bent a hose while the water is running right so imagin if you do this to your pennis i need not say more so becareful..also for you guys that love oral sex with more than one partner this is where it starts with that infected person that has a std such as clamydia (chlamydia) ect the bodily fluid goes inside the pennis openning and this is where your troubles starts that fluid goes back down the uinary trac and seeps into the prostrat gland where it lives until treated thats why its hard to detect..so this is where urinary trac infection can develope on this end.

36 yrs old. Hispanic. Hetero. Male. Started experiencing most of the symptoms described here about 2 years ago. I was at a strip club and a girl gave me a "high impact" lapdance, with a lot of grinding and friction. I was very aroused throughout the 5-6 minutes this lasted. A few minutes later, I went to the bathroom. Imagine my reaction when, standing in front of the urinal, instead of clear urine I blasted out what seemed like a pint of blood, loaded with tons of small-medium sized clots. Thank God there was nobody else in the bathroom to see that. On my way home that night, I stopped at a public restroom and the same thing happened. This went of for 2-3 weeks every time I had sex or was highly aroused.

I saw my primary Dr, who had me do all kinds of bloodwork, which revealed nothing. After a couple of weeks, the symptons just went away on their own and I forgot about the whole thing. However, about a month ago, I was having sex and noticed streaks of blood in my sperm when I ejaculated. This freaked me out a bit since there was never blood in my sperm the first time it happenned. Sure enough, when I went to pee afterward blood came out along with the several clots. This time around, the bleeding seems worse than before. Not only is there blood in the semen AND the urine, but also the clots are bigger and harder to pass. In fact, if I don't urinate inmediately after ejaculation it might take me hours to pass the huge (and painful) clot that will almost certainly form.

This time around, I saw a urologist. He performed a generic exam where he checked the prostate and took a look at everything he could inspect with the naked eye. Nothing abnormal there. He sent me for a CAT-SCAN and a week later called me and said everything looked normal, with the exception of a slightly enlarged protate. Nothing significant, he said. Next, I'm scheduled to go in for a scoping (which really doesn't thrill me). After reading many of the posts here, I'm kind of preparing myself to the real possibility that nothing will come off that either.

teddy37, I found your post very informative and interesting. I'll make sure to ask about those meds when I go back in. Thank you.

One last thing... has anyone found a way to help break up the clots so that one doesn't have to wait so long and go thru all that pain and discomfort? I've tried taking some Aspirin, since I heard it can work as a blood-thinner, but had no success. Sometimes, I have to massage the head of the penis to help the clot along. But that doesn't always work either. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

I'm seriously considering printing out all these post and sending them to my Primary Dr and urologist. Maybe that will prompt them to do some research on the issue.

Thank you all.

Hi,

24yr old male with similar issue. I get blood in the sperm, almost totally blood, but then right after I'll peee I'll pee perfectly fine and there will be no blood whatsoever. I'll drink water and the pee will come out totally white and no issues peeing.

I was just at my GP few days before this started so couldn't mention it then..so just waiting to see what my cbc/urineanalysis test show (those are the regular tests) and then go from there. I figure urineanalysis can show something. Right?

And to those that are clotting? Is your pee coming out yellow or white?

ideally, pee should be white..it means you are getting enough water. It may help with not having any clotting. Just guzzle 2-3 glasses of water at a time.

I'll ask some questions and see if we have things in common. I do have some training in medicine.

Any of you dealing with high blood pressure?

I'm young (24) but always seem to have high bp..despite being in good shape and eating quiet healthy. But they always say "you must be a bit nervous." I am but I don't think that's normal. I've heard that can be related.

Any of you had rough sex where you were grinding?

The first time I saw blood in my sperm I was grinding against my partner. So my penis was grinding against my balls, and I think I went too hard. A blood vessel could easily tear in that case.(in the sac) When you think about it, that is is an unusual position for a penis. In regular sex positions, you rarely have a situation where your **** is actually pressed up against your balls.

Finally, would you guys define your general skin as sensitive? do you get marks easily/scarred? have you ever had abscesses or big pimples etc on your butt/behind, etc? scarring on the back of some sort or small infections on the finger nails? If so, I've heard that you can tear vessels by simply sometimes sitting down a lot. If you have an office job, or sit a lot, very possible.

So went to a clinic today and I told the doctor I had ejaculated blood two times. She seemed very calm and assured and said "oh yeah, that's very common." Asked if there was any pain when ejaculating/urinating. Asked if there was any pain in the abdomen or anywhere around the area. I said there was none.

She said if there is no pain and especially if there is no blood during urination..its some kinda trauma to the blood vessel.

She checked my scrotum/testicles as well and said it seemed fine.

After reading all the posts my heart is pounding so heavy. In fact I am sweating..... At first I thought I had contracted an STI but when I visited this site I am a bit settled now coz of the fact that I am not alone(although I still think I am the only Zimbabwean to experience this)... I almost fainted this morning when I saw blood and wondered what could have happened to me. I had sex 2 days back but I didnt really penetrate coz both of us were virgins so at first I thot it cld be because of the pain I experienced.. But in my mind I had a lot question marks as to why blood and some pain at the base of my penis and around my testicles.... I visited my second best friend - (Dr) Google and yes I was stunned by what he told me.....

This bloody condition is freaking me out big time I tell you. I havent seen any clots but am pretty sure I am gonna see rock-size ones if what I read is anything to go by.... I juss pray that God deliver us from this horrible experience. I have so much faith in God and a strong believer and hope that this condition is 'normal'.

about a month ago i've had very similar symptoms but with a few exceptions. i'm 22 years old.  i'm almost positive that the blood in my semen was caused by not ejaculating, holding off more then i ever have before when i was watching porn. there was a lot of blood, and the next day i urinated 3 times with clots and blood until the night. i didn't masturbate or have sex for a week after reading posts like this, i figured i burst a vessel and it was supposed to clear up after a few days. masturbated again with porn and more blood. one urination and one clot and blood but none after that. i waited another week and masturbated and there was NO blood, but this was with no porn. so i was thinking that there was a direct link with the stimulation and the blood, but next time i masturbated without porn there was blood then too.

the strange thing is since the first 2 times there has been blood in the semen, there hasn't been any blood at all in my urine that i can see. the first time was over a month ago and at one point i waited a week and a half to heal a blood vessel if thats what it is with no apparent use. i've masturbated with porn, without, had sex, **'s, and waited long periods without ejaculating and tried ejaculating twice a few hours apart. usually there's blood and sometimes not, but none in the urine since then. there has been no pain whatsoever until now. there is a very small pain that i keep thinking i'm imagining but it's there, the day after i ejaculated twice.

i have masturbated about every day for years, but twice when i had gone 2 weeks without ejaculating i had seen a very small clot in the urine both times. i know that the extra semen is ejected with urine if there is no ejaculation after a time and figured letting it build up was causing it and it hasn't happened until now. the only new thing is that i moved in with my girlfriend when she was on her period so we went a week and a half without having sex, but i also stopped masturbating for all that time. i imagined maybe it was causing irritation or something like that

i'm laid off and am struggling to get insurance so i can go to a urologist without bankrupting myself, which seems to be likely with the lack of success that you guys have had. i'm not terrified of hospitals, but am somewhat afraid of any type of surgery, needles, or things involving internal organs so if there's anyway i won't have to have things like biopsies done to me that would be preferred especially if they'll give no answers or solutions. two questions maybe someone can answer is, should i not ejaculate in the hopes of repairing a tear, or would that cause a build up like those years ago and cause bleeding anyways? if the problem is a UTI, would that cause pain, but still no blood in urine anymore?

Just wanted to add my two cents.
I keep freaking myself out thinking I have prostate cancer but I'm 20.  :(  Though I realize its possible at any age.

Basically, the symptoms go:

Blood in semen 40-50% of the time through masturbating
Blood in semen 90% of the time through sex
Blood in urine always upon ANY stimulation
Blood clots always upon any stimulation
Erections through mental stimulations can also cause blood clots in my urine and also slight discoloration of urine (blood of course)

I hope someone can come up with an answer.. it's really scary to know that not a single person has found concrete information about our symptoms.

I think I have some answers for you all.  I have gone through almost everything you guys have over the last 3 months and was also freaked out over it all – finally I am cured after 3 months.  I went to 3 Urologists, had all the tests (sythescope, ultrasounds, CT Scans, etc.) all to find nothing.  After I found this sight I did feel a lot better just knowing that I was not alone.  Anyway, I tried almost everything I read here that sounded like it could possibly help and this is what I found did it:  You have to take it easy.  I think what caused it with me was either biking with a girly type of seat, running or working out.  All of which could have caused the injury (as I had done them all).  After trying everything I heard here and going through every test and reading everything I could get my hands on related to this issue, these are my recommendations: 1) To help any pain, try the icing and taking baths, but I don’t think it really helped much with the healing (maybe a little help), 2) don’t ejaculate in any way for about a week or 2 at a time to allow time to heal.  If blood, then just wait another week or two.  Yes, it *****, but I am convinced it just needs time to heal.  3) To insure it’s not an infection, take cipro from your urologist or any other antibiotic they want you to try.  I tried 3 different kinds over the last 3 months for about 10 days each.  If you do have an infection which is causing this, that could solve the problem and it’s best to take it just incase.  In my case I don’t think that helped cure it, but it couldn’t hurt.  Plus, when you have that blood you don’t want to take any chances getting or having an infection.  4) Take a mutli-vitamin and vitamin C every day.  5) Take it easy and don’t do any exercise of any kind until the problem is healed.  6) Getting a hard-on often during this period of time I found to not cause any problem and if anything could have helped keep my testicals “firm” which I believe promoted the healing process, so if you can handle having the so called “blue balls” for a while, I think it could help.  Bottom line is that you should not worry about it.  I found that a little of what everyone said here was correct.  It will eventually heal.  It feels like your case may be worse that everyone, but it’s not.  Other than giving you an antibiotic, the urologists will do nothing for you other than have you go through unnecessary uncomfortable tests just to protect them selves.  But I guess you need to go to them anyway because anything you can do must be done.  I promised myself that I would write here once I was healed as a contribution to whatever I learned.  Please do the same to help us all!

Same problem happened right after sex, noticed a reddish tint to my sperm. I figured it was her because she said it hurt a little when i hit some spot inside of her. Hour or so later I arrive home, went to the bathroom to go pee so first thing I notice is I'm peeing blood and then it turns the normal yellow??? It didn't hurt or anything I wouldn't have noticed anything was wrong if I hadn't looked down, five bottles of water later waiting to see what happens. Now I'm all for going to the doctor and plan to go some time this week (finals in college very busy) can anyone fill me in on what these tests involve and what specifically is the doctor looking for, my email is ***@**** I appreciate any help I can get in understanding exactly what is going on with my body.

Thanks adamcpa, I found your post very informative.  My symptions include a genital area 'burning sensation' together with the blood in my semen.  The Uro gave me antibiotics which stopped the buring (probably an infection).  It's been 21 days since I ejaculated so I really don't know if the blood has cleared up.  I assumed I had UTI but the Uro said UTI is rare for men.  Uro was concerned about bacteria in my bladder and wants to do a Cystoscopy in Jan.  I'm not thrilled but will probably go forward.  I'm in my mid 50's and I want to wait about another week or so before sex with wife (new year's eve).  If clear, I might cancel Cystoscopy.  BTW, I do treadmill for 40 minutes 5x a week so I may cut this down considerably.
This is the best forum that I've found on the net.

I have been experiencing the same symptoms for the past 10+- years. I'm a 39 year old male. For me, it seems to happen most often when I hold my ejaculations for long periods of time. Everything seems to come out ok when I have an immediate release. Just a thought for you to consider. Been checked out just like all of you have, everything is fine!!! It is a little scary for your partner to experience (this happened this morning and she was a little freaked out).

Guys have just had the whole clot/blood in my pee thing this morning after sex last night.Had this happen 10 years ago and had the catheta and camera treatment after being unable to pee after sex the previous night.TOTAL BLOCKAGE OF THE URETHRA only eased after the catheta being fitted for 8 hours and drinking loads of water.Camera inconclusive with NO signs of any damage anywhere inside WHATSOEVER.Finally came up with bicycle seat being too hard causing crushing of the urethra.Stopped riding bike and problem went away.Unfortunately this time i havent ridden a bike!!However just started back down the gym after a long absense.Went to gym for the second time this week and included a 6min run after a moderate weight session.Followed by what i would call normal sex where girlfriend noted blood in semen.Believed it was her coil causing trouble so slept on it.This morning horrid dark pee with large clots present.Lots of fluid all day but drops of blood at the end of each passing.Cant believe this has returned!!Would advise peeing after EVERY ejaculation to clear the pipes out to prevent blockage and check for blood.No pain anywhere else and no stress in my life or std's.Age 38 weight 12st 8lb height 5ft 5in.Gna not have sex for at least a week while this heals.Stil gna go to the gym as i have to loose 1st.Hoping for a cure as this is a nasty ailment to have specially as the doc doesnt really know wots going on.Grasping at straws doesnt help us.I believe its tearing of the urethra lining during the act of ejaculation but those clots are huge so cant see how a small tear could cause this and why cant the camera see this damage??Dont let this get you down as you are not alone.

Well iv had another nights sleep and have no more blood in the urine so for now im ok.Slightly nervous about making love now and i hope the girlfriend understands.I have explained it all to her but not sure she could quite comprehend the size of the clots or the amount of blood.All i can suggest is to just drink plenty of fluid til you run clear as this flushes out the clots.Not too sure how to not get so aroused when making love as i enjoy my sex.Gna try it on a day when i havent been to the gym.Hoping this is exercise related at least then i will sort of have an answer.

QUICK QUESTION. I have had the same problems you guys all seem to have. I have started to look at common issues that could be causing this. I have read on several sites that ASPRIN which causes thinning of blood can also be responsible for these conditions. I take a lot of pain killers in a powdered Aprin form after severe neck injury a few years back. It is the only thing I can think of that could cause the symptoms I have. I used to be a serious cyclist - never had the symptoms until about 6 month back - about 4 years after I gave up cycling. There must be a common cause, - I do see many here have cycling as a sport, could be this. Anyone here take a lot of ASPRIN??? This could be another link.

Try to control your sexual well-being. Think less sexual, which is hard for all us men but try so erections will occur less. Before you have sex make sure you pee right away. Also, try to have less sexual contact. Last but not least, this might work for you or not but drink water so it clears you out easier and so you'll pee more clean.

Also, be sure to ejaculate fully. Don't hold your sperm in or it will cause more bleeding. Blockage is a big issue. When peeing, don't force the urine out or it will cause bleeding and also, if you just take it easy for about a week, that means no sexual intercourse, no masturbation, no exercising or fitness training, and just sit back and relax for a week. It helps me and I haven't urinated blood in a long time. I'm going to get back into some sexual intercourse and see if the results are true to it's nature. Hopefully this blood thing will heal or wear off.

Hi everyone! Feels good knowing I'm not alone on this, as some of us have already said. I'm a 38 years old man, from South-America and i try to have a healthy life style so i watch what i eat exercise regularly and so on. As I have read here so many times and sometimes i can see myself through most of the postings and wonder if we all may have something in common, like: eating habits, training routines, steroids,maybe just rough sex or whatever is out there that we need to consider as the cause, if there is any…! It could well be a link somewhere or not link at all, at which case we just have to deal with it the best we possibly can, i guess. Mine went away few weeks back, and just like a lot of you I thought it had gone and wouldn't come back so soon (i wished) and thought to myself what a fortunate man i was not to have it anymore...! until.... last week...! yehh...! There it was again, this time a bit more hardcore though; had sex with my girl and had a quick nap (like we all do) for no more than 30 minutes, went to the toilet just to find myself freaked out by not being able to pee,(FIRST TIME) a little concentration and few glasses of water later i passed it, doesn't hurt though, it just refuses to go thats all. Well the clots are bigger now, had sex 3 days later just to see whether i had a bit of an improvement and had a bigger clot this time, was on the verge to go to the hospital but remembered that painkillers thins the blood and although it was a clot i thought it could work, drowned some glasses of water and hoped for the best... 20 minutes later and just about to pop with a pressurized bladder off iI went, hold it up and forced it out in one go and i can tell you it was the biggest and most welcomed splash ever, jokes apart, I think the best thing is to drink some water before so then you have some ammunition to fire afterwards, try the painkiller before in case yours clots are just as unpleasant as mine have been and prepare yourself for the battle. don't take it to seriously though, do what your docs tells you! I have been to the hospital prior to whats happening now and after ultra-sound, urethroscopy( tube down my penis with a woman nurse in the room)  and a CT scan they found 4 stones in my left kidneys and a shadow of three others that had already passed on my right one,(think its due to the protein powders i had during the years) so the doctors assumed it was (me passing the stones) and nothing else! well I'm coming back coz I'm not waiting to pass my kidneys through my penis on the waiting bench! what I would suggest is to put our eating habits here as well as others things we thing is relevant in order to try and see whether there is a path! Don't let it get to you and your relationship, accept the fact that it may bleed and work around it with the best of your abilities and lets hope for someone, somewhere with the right answer! Take Care! Alex

Glad to see this post. I have experienced this in June of 09. Had a PSA/DRE test at the uro and came out fine. Symptoms went away and everything was great. 2 weeks ago, BAMMMMMMMM! Once again, passing blood clots after ejaculation. I am currently getting 'prepared' for a CT and scope to see if anything is up. I am sure that everything will come back great but, the anxiety that this 'blemish' causes is unbearable. One thing that I have started looking into is trying to stregthen the blood vessels by taking Vit C. I dont if anyone else has tried this approach but let me know if it had helped any. I know the doc's act like all is ok when you explain the symptoms but if it is a vessel, can it be caterize? i have appts next week for CT and scope to be done the following Tuesday (chicken out when I was the the Uro this past Tuesday). I am a big boy now and I am coming to realization that I was only scared of the outcome, not the procedure. I will let you all know what the outcome will be once I get all results. In the meantime, it's nice to know that there is a differ type of family that you can consult with.

I have experienced the exact same issues as most those in this post. I am 43 and I have been having this issue for over 20 years. Very normal lifestyle and I am in good physical health - no STD"s, or other health issues - and I rarely take an asprine. The blood in urine occurs mostly after rough sex. Normally when the woman is on top. Afterwards when I try to urinate I can't. The blockage or clot makes it very difficult to pee. and when I do I always see a clot. I have actually removed the clot from the toilet (yeah gross I know) and it has an almost flesh like appearance when the blood is whipped away. (I felt I had to perform this little test becasue the doctors, including the uninologist never get to view). I had a MRA performed 4 years ago and a cyst (nothing serious) was present next to my prostate. The doctor though that removing the cyst may cause damage to the nerves in that area. He speculates that the cyst ruptures during rough or extended periods of sex. I have to agree with his thoughts. Although this is a very scary experience and it affects my sex life nothing seems to be pointing towards cancer. Anyway - I will keep checking this post.

I am a 35 year old male, and suffer from the exact same issues as listed in this post. I have suffered from this since I was 21 years old.  I have bloody semen, and not just after sex, but here recently, after getting an erection. Found blood stains in my underwear this evening.  I have large blood clots present in my semen after sex, and my urine is stained with blood until the clots are gone.  Slight pressure and slight pain is present before I unrinate.  Went to Urologist, and had a prostate exam.  It was normal.  Had a PSA, and it came back .5, which is well below normal.  This is very concerning to me, not to my Urologist.  He simply says that it is a normal condition that affects many men.  It is becoming more and more difficult.  I read in the post to abstain from sex/masterbation/erections for at least a week.  Is that even possible?  Any suggestions on how to prevent this from happening, or possibly slowing it down?  My doc seems to think that this is the result of some torn vessels?

Well I just saw a small string like clot in my sperm? At first I thought maybe a black string from my underwear got caught in the lube I was using while masterbating (masturbating)? Then I noticed my semen was pink in color and I saw a few smaller clots, a little bigger than a pinhead but smaller than a pencil eraser? I freaked - OF COURSE. And I'm still freaking! I read every last comment on this form, I start to feel relieved after 1 or 2 of them, then I start freaking after reading how serious a blod clot or internal bleeding can be?

Only thing extra physical I have done the last few days was shovel snow? It was heavy and all, but I don't remember any trauma to any area on the body?

I guess one good thing here, not 1 response said, "oh it was an STD" or I had a horrific after effect.... We're buried in 28 inches of snow right now, I am sure my Dr wont be in till Monday, but I'm calling and going to see him as soon as I can.

I have no medical insurance, so I hope he has a resonable answer... Hate the idea of paying for all these tests to find out "waiting to see"
was the best answer. At the same time, I want to make sure all is well..

The issue that I have is this...it is quite common, according to my Urologist.  My prostate is normal, my PSA is normal.  My testicles are normal.  Like most of you, it just happens when it wants.  No reasonable time table or explanation.  I get string-like clots, big monster clots, and so on and so forth. I urinate 1-2 times, and its as if nothing ever happened. So if this is all so normal, why in the hell is there not some research?  I was told that due to my age ( I am 35, almost 36) that my prostate, although normal, is growing.  As it grows, it tears vessels and that blood pools up and when I ejaculate, there you go. The worst part is that it comes and goes...sometimes many months in between episodes. One day I feel fine, the next, BOOM....it is a pain in the butt...no pun intended...then I have to abstain from any kind of sexual encounter until it passes.  It really is hard pill to swallow...

i posted a couple days ago and have finally finished all the tests. Everything comes back clear except for some blood by the seminal vescles. I also decided on my own to go to my GP and have a complete lab work done. The lab work came back good except for my cholesterol was high at 153 (especially my LDL at 134). Ok, here is what i am looking at. If high levels of LDL can cause blood vessels to rupture, could this be a symptom of high cholesterol. Has anyone else tried this route? Please follow up with me on this. I have a appt on Feb 24th with my GP to discuss my levels and what I can do about it. My urologist also confirmed the Vit C can help as well. I am determined to find a solution to this issue. Post back any results or thoughts you guys may have. Also, to the guys scared of getting scoped or sonogramed, dont be. I took it fully awakened and alert no problem.

I've been having this issue for a while now. Although I haven't seen a doctor about it yet cause it doesn't happen all the time I've deduced it down to some of my own theories if you're interested. First, I try to masterbate often mainly to see if any blood will come out (while I'm in private) and it NEVER does. The only time blood comes out is when I have intercourse and I can usually tell when it happens cause I do feel a discomfort when ejaculating. From what I gather, here's my theories: 1) rough sex, maybe overworked testicles from sex/masterbation from the previous day, 2) a tight vagina, and 3) I always use a condom during sex and most of the time I just feel the condom gets pull too tightly against the head of my penis. It's just as if there was no resevoir at all so when I ejaculate (as weird as this sounds but this is what it feels like) I feel that the semen has nowhere to go but forced back down the urethra and...Afterward, I do have blood and blood clots in my urine but I think it's just left over from the ejaculation and it cleans out after one or two bathroom breaks. What I need to do to test that theory is pull the condom off before ejaculation so there is more freedom and ejaculate someplace on the exterior but obviously there's the fear of embarrasment. Inside the condom I can always hide that. Hope this helps someone. I'll continue with my "research".  :)

Its been a week since i had my last bleed whilst on holiday.Have no sex or masturbation for 3 weeks.Had sex last night and the result was not good.Now i get blood in the ejaculation.Had a pee straight after and the passed blood clots?Now really confused as i thought any damage was caused during the sex but this cant be the case if i am passing these clots so soon after the ejaculation.All week my urine has been normal colour with no problem passing.The clots cant be in the bladder or in the urethra.Were are they coming from?Anyhow total blockage of the urethra again this morning any only after relaxing and contracting the internal musclec did i pass a monster of a clot and much stained urine.Going to keep searching for the answers.

My symptoms are no longer associated with the first post on this forum.I now pass blood in the urine with clots pretty much every morning now after no sort of activity or sexual intercourse.Had an ache in my back on the left side last night so i fear this is kidney related so im off to the hospital to get it checked.I will post the results so for now good luck.

Well I have exhibited some of the same symptoms after a very tramatic ski accident in which I slid and ragdolled approximately 2500'. I did not notice until a week later that periodically I was urinating blood which just turned my urine an orangish color. Today I masturbated and saw big spot of blood in my ejaculate. I have no idea what to think except that this must be from the trama somehow. I have a torn ACL and a broken wrist. The slope on which I fell was approx. 50 degrees vertical so the fall was quite violent over rocks an through trees. Do any others have physical activity reasons that may attribute to thier symptoms?

Hey Guys.  

     I haven't created an account so I'll refer to myself as Mario.  I'm 22. I'm a virgin. After a week without masterbating (masturbating), I masterbated and saw very small traces of blood in my sperm.  The majority of it, however, was still pasty white.  I just saw little red jolts of blood.  I then went to the bathroom & my urine was completely red, which threw me off completely.  What happened next was the biggest surprise.  While Urinating, something passed through that I assumed to be a blood clot.  The scariest thing what that I did not feel the blood clot.  Through out that entire experience, I felt no pain.  The next morning, I went to the bathroom and my urine was still red, but not as red as it was following my orgasm.  So a day or two passes and my urine has now gone completely yellow.  I've gone to the doctor and given a urine sample and they found traces of something that is only found in blood but there was no complete make up of blood.  So that day, I masturbated again but this time... my sperm was COMPLETELY red.  Do you know how haunting that is? This fluid should be pasty white and it's RED???!!! I was incredibly scared and now I just don't want to have anymore orgasms. I don't want to see that again.  Anyway, I immediately went to pee expecting more blood and maybe another soft clot... but it was all yellow.  I haven't had enough encounters to know if there is a pattern but... I feel like I need to try masterbating (masturbating) tonight just to see what happens.  My biggest fears are 1.) It will be some sort of illness that is life-threatening.  2.) This could possibly make something as normal as cumming & peeing painful & traumatizing.  3.) That I won't be able to stop this because the doctors know absolutely nothing.  Sorry if I've repeated something, I only read the first 5 posts and felt inspired to share.  I'm at least relieved that there are other men going through this.  Of the responses I read, you guys have all had sex.  I havent so It's even more frustrating to me knowing I havent exposed my body to any outside factors. It's just me and something seems very wrong.  Out of the blue... blood & blood clots. Sheesh.

Hey Guys,

     It's Mario again. So I was masterbating (masturbating) & I was looking for pre-*** to see if it was red.  The pre-*** was clear. So I got optimistic that maybe my sperm might be as well.  My sperm was not completely red, but a lot of it had blood in it.  I think I've noticed something.  If my sperm is not entirely red, I think that means I should expect a clot the next time I urine.  That is surely what happened tonight.  This is my second clot.  This time, it didn't flow seamlessly.  I started to pee (& it was red).  Then the pee stopped, but I wasn't controlling it.  I had to relax my muscles & in about... 15 to 20 seconds, the clot shot out like a cannon firing (it didnt hurt).  Afterwards, high-pressured yellow urine immediately followed.  I just want my body to be normal.  Lord, help me please.  Heal my body & take away all that is unlike you.  Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done. Amen.  Guys... this is really discouraging.  I'm only 22. What if this means something concerning my reproductive ability?  I want kids. I really do.  & I want to enjoy sex and not play hot potatoe or the guessing game everytime I ejaculate.  Sigh...

I am 52, and have had exactly the same symptoms, for 5 months.
Blood in the Urine. Occasional clots. Nothing for weeks.

I was so worried about it that I went to see my wifes Doctor. I don't do Doctors.
He checked Prostate, Blood and Urine. NOTHING
I did not ride for a week and seemed to clear up, so I assumed it was the bike as I ride a Buell. It started again after the weekend although I had not ridden, so I started worrying again.

I had not realized that it was related to ejaculation as I am not in the habit of checking my sperm. About 4 weeks ago I realized that it is related to having an orgasm. I have rechecked and this is a definite. Occasional blood in sperm, but next 4 - 6 toilet visits, blood at begin and then again, if I force, at the end.

Tonight I decided to search on the net and found this site.
I am still confused but less worried than I was. John

I'm a 33 year old male.  My girlfriend sent this post to me and I have to say I'm very glad she did.  Last night was the second time I had blood in my urine after we had sex.  I did not notice any blood in my sperm, however.  Next week I am going to the urologist after having a cat scan earlier this week.  I'll post what the doc tells me.  It is traumatizing to see yourself pissing blood!  I haven't rubbed one out on my own lately; so I'm not sure if that will cause it.  But, it's strange because it just started happening.  

Exercise:  I think I should mention that I mountain bike ride (2 or 3 times a week in the summer).  However, I haven't been riding at all for several months.  Some of the posters above also ride bikes or motor cycles; so I wonder if that is a correlation?  I also lift weights and I have been doing dead-lifts lately.  My ab workouts have also increased in intensity.  Maybe that has brought it on?  I have noticed some pain in the lower-left of my pelvis when I do situps.  However, the doctor that I saw a week or two ago checked me for hernias, and she didn't find anything down there.

Diet:  One of the posts above suggested we post what we eat.  I've been eating pretty healthy for a while now.  I have cut down on my fat intact (low-fat: meats, chicken, fish, mayo, cheese, 1%milk, etc), drink water (tap), very little soda or alcohol, very little candy/sweets, supplement with protein powder, creatine monohydrate (just started) and BCAA's (just started).  I've also increased my cruciferous intake (broccoli, brussel sprouts, etc).  I eat two whole eggs and two egg whites just about every day.  I've also made sure to keep my fiber up with oatmeal and fiber one.  

Again, I'll post what the doc tells me next week.  I'm glad I'm not the only one who is dealing with this.  It does make me wonder what will come out next, more blood, bigger clots, etc?  Well, at least it doesn't hurt; yet.

I too have had the same problem off and on since i was 28... now 36. When it happens I call it a "break", guessing b/c of the pressure building up. There is no pain involved, but it's very disconcerting. I wanted to add that absitinence to give time to heal does work. The best thing was that it went away for over 3 years when I began to exercise and eat healthy.. lost 20 lbs and really got it together. I think that strengthened my cell walls and general well being so there was no "break". I have since began to slack in the exercise and eating habits over the last year... and sure enough it came back. I guess this is a good reason to stay on top of your health!!! I know there are vitamins/supplements that help with cellular strength, so I'm going to start taking them. I agree that someone has got to get on this and find a cure, b/c although not detrimental to our general health, you all know it really screws with you psychologically and kills your sex life.

My own feeling on how this develops is that maybe the penis tends to slightly twist and bend when inside the vjj in certain sex positions. In my case i was about to release and noticed that the sperm flow did not want to pass because my penis was in a weird position, the bottom part was not letting sperm come out since i was putting pressure on it against her, it was very slight pressure and felt just a little pain when i did release. It was my excitement along with hers that made me decide to continue and that's when all these symptoms started. It felt like my pressured semen made a tear somewhere along the tube in the mid part of my penis. When you touch yourself you can feel a tube running along the bottom of the penis from your balls to the tip, when blocked and you decide to release anyway you tend to put pressure on the lining and other blood vessels causing a tear. This tear is hard to heal if you have sex often or if your partner puts pressure on the bottom tube on a ** when you release. The body will try to heal but a few weeks of no sex or lap dance pressure will help in the long run. This is just for the original post, it's not anything other than a tear and if anyone knows how to heal internal bleeding tears let me know. No xray or std exams make sense in your case or mine, we just need to be aware that this penis tube is never bent or blocked during the end of intercourse. Missionary position is the best at making sure your penis is completely straight and if trying new sex positions please make sure that you can bring your penis in and out with ease specially when you are about to release since this is the KEY moment to avoid such a condition and prevent new tears. I wish i would of known this about rough sex. In lap dances women tend to not know what feels right in men, i would recommend letting her know how to touch you rather than her squeezing some of the delicate parts of the penis. May everyone recover and go back to normal soon, and don't worry about your partner, she will understand bleeding since she herself avoids sex during you know what. If there is anyone in the world that would be good to talk to and understanding is a woman.

Hello,  I hope you have time to read this.  I to have have this problem and for many years.  Im currently 45 and my 1st experience was about 15 to 20 years ago.  One day I couldn't urinate the entire day.  I went out the night before and drank had a good time.  That day I  couldn't to pee.  I would take several hot showers and nothing. So I had asked my roommate at the time to take me to the ER.  Once there, they took me in and they laid me down and inserted a catheter.  Ouch.  I was so relieved.  I left with the catheter and bag and they asked me to see someone in a couple of days to have the catheter removed.  I did,  I noticed that the bag was yellow and asked them if them if they can recommend a urologist.  I saw someone and they inserted a tube in me to do a x-ray of my bladder.  Afterwards they said everything is fine. hmmm.  I said that doesn't sound right.  So I got a 2nd and 3erd opinion. and the same. I was thinking  Something is causing this and all you can say to my it's common. I find that hard to believe.  So I dealt with this for many years and finally said to myself that I guess it's normal.  So years pass by and I noticed that every 2 to 3 years this happens again.  But not as severe as the ER time.  And it happens when I penetrate.  And sometimes when Im so turn on I find little clots of blood in my semen.  So after sex I feel the urge to pee and I can feel the clot there,  like around the head of my penis.  Most times I can kind of force it out with time. Then I drink lots of liquids.  Then,  I see little clots come out and then Im fine for the rest of the day.  Until I masturbate and find little bit of blood in my semen. I kind of got use to it.  So this happens when 1.  When I penetrate my partner which only happens every 2 to 3 years.  2. Or when I get so turned on.  So 3 years ago this happened again and I thought I had to go to the ER and after all morning of not being able to urinate and by the afternoon I said to my partner that I think I need to go to the ER and I was also was drinking lots of water.  I know the routine.  This time is wasn't coming out.  I decided to try to poop, and thank God that it came out when I did.  You know when you poop you also pee.  Well this helped me.   So at that time again I saw a different urologist. He did his thing and examined my rectum and said that I DIDN'T HAVE AN INFECTION.  But still put me on antibiotics for 30 days.  And nothing.  So learned to deal with it.  Yes Im scared when this happens.  Well in 2004 my brother passed away of colon cancers.  Soon after that around 2007 my doctor called me in and said my platelets were low.  She wanted me to see a bone marrow specialist.  I did and they did some blood test and she told me that my counts are low but not low enough to do a bone morrow.  But we need to monitor it.  So now 2010.  This past Thursday April 1st after having sex in the morning noticed that I had to urinate later in the day.  For a while I couldn't.  And I know what was happening.  After trying to pee it out and nothing. We decided to go to the ER.  Believe me I was trying to avoid the ER cause I know what's going to happen.  Got there and said that I really need to pee and I needed help.  I did have a little time. They called me and did my B/P and asked questions and I told the nurse I really had to pee. He called someone to have the catheter put in and couldn't find anyone cause they were busy as well.  He took me to the back room and asked me to lay down and undo my shorts.  I did and he inserted the catheter.  Yes very painful.  Afterwards I felt so good and relieved.  They wheeled me to the back of the ER.  Waited and I told the nurse that my platelets are normally low and she did some blood work.  They got the results and said that my platelets were low but not enough to keep me in the hospital.  But they do want me to see a hematologist.
So I was sent home with the catheter and they changed the bag to a leg bag.  Which is the bag where the urine goes into and that was around 10PM Thursday night.  Got home and around 1AM Friday morning I was emptying the bag in the toilet and I felt the urge to pee and the catheter was preventing me from urinating.  I felt that there was a clot that couldn't pass through.  And then I noticed that the clot came out from the side of the catheter.  It freaked me out and wasn't sure if the catheter came out but noticed it still in and the clot the size of a thin quarter.  So we went to the ER that morning around 2AM Friday and was out at 5AM they also changed the bag which was larger. Thank God. For those of you who don't know anything about a catheter.  Its a tube that goes into you penis and at the end is a balloon that sits in front of your bladder.  Which is about 8 inches or something like that.  The balloon that sits right there is below the bladder and before the urethral.  Which is the tube in your penis.  Sorry for being so detail.  While there they adjusted the catheter and I was sent home at 5AM.  When I got home when to bed and noticed in the morning there was some blood in my urine and some clots.  Around 4PM Friday afternoon.  I went to the ER again cause I really couldn't pee again.  I thought if they just take the tube out I can flush it out with liquid.  But no.  I was put in a room and the bottom of catheter has  tube that passes the urine into the bag and an another place where you can eject liquids into the bladder,  which they did.  They had this syringe the size of 8 to 9 inches.  They filled the syringe with saline half way and inserted that syringe into that tube and that goes into my bladder and once in they suck the clots out and it felt like I peed.  I was so relieved.  I was telling the nurses that why can't I just take the the catheter and drink plenty of and pee all the clots.   Just let me try.  I felt like the catheter was keeping me from peeing.  Well the doctor said lets do a murphy's drip.  Which is a larger catheter.  So they have to take out the catheter that's in there and insert this Murphy's drip catheter.  It comes with a bag of liquid that sits up on a stand and that tube goes into the catheter and into my bladder then, exit through the tube in the penis that goes to into a bag.  Well that hurt like hell again. When they inserted that catheter.  This fluid goes into my bladder and flushes out the clots and urine constantly.  Well it kept on clotting up.  She would flush me out with the syringe and clots would come out.  She must of flushed me about 25 times in one hour.  This nurse was definitely working for her money.  I was in so much pain when I felt the urge to pee and couldn't and I would press for a nurse and I was in pain.  And she had to flush me again, and again for the next 2 hours.  The clots kind of slowed down and by midnight I was sent to a room.  But before I had the nurse flush me again and when I got up stairs in my room they emptied the bag, and started fresh. By morning my bag was clear and no redness and clots which made me feel great.  I was thanking God at this point and before. This whole experience was scary and each time I was calling for a nurse and had to be flush I was calling asking God to please help me. I was really freaking out. The urologist that I saw the night before said he would see me in the morning.  Well, at 7AM Saturday he was there and saw my yellow clear bag and gave me the thumbs up and said that was a good sign. I still had to have an ultrasound for my kidneys and they did that and now I am just waiting for the Doctor to discharge me.  Wow what an experience. I pray to God that I never have to go through this again. So here comes the doctor. She gave me my results from my ultrasound and it was negative. She wants me to see an hematologist cause of my low platelets.  And follow up with my urologist.  So we took the catheter out and went home.  OMG. Glad to leave and now I have schedule for my appointments. I peeing clear. I hope this help people.

Guys, this is a common problem, Trauma to the lining of the urethra caused by an accidental "bend" during an erection Rings designed to force an unnatural ammount of blood pressure to the penis and keep it there, Strenuous sexual activity. and Even VIAGRA can cause blood Vessles to burst, Blood backflows into the Blatter and evenything comes out red.
Avoid even having an erection for 10 days. absolutly NO ED drugs or blood thinners.
Drink LOTS of water and urinate OFTEN untill you flush residual blood out of the blatter, otherwise you risk UTI.
after that recognise that you have a Tear in a blood vessle that will heal with scar tissue and is LIKELY to break again if you push too much pressure thru that area.
so after making this discovery, adopt a more easy going, les vigorous approach to your orgasms.
and Like anything, when in any doubt, See your Doctor.

been followin this thread since it 1st happend to me 4 yrs ago when i was 22, having intercourse with my gf in the shower. Saw blood, thought it was her, went to bed, woke up at 5am needing to pee real bad, pissed all blood with blood clots....went to the doctor when i got back from vacation, all tests were normal.....doctor was no help at all...didnt happen again for about 9months, the boom!, i was masturbating, and just before i came, a stream of bright red blood came out, like everytime, i almost fainted, and got real mad at this problem. i mean, i dont think a girl would appreciate ejaculating a bloody clot all on her....happened again about 1 1/2 yrs later, same cycle.....and obviosuly cause im on here now, iut just happend this morning during masturbation, and now back to anxiety and stress...heres what i know...when i start peeing blood, it first happens due to an erection.....if i drink alot of water, i will start peeing clear and fine, with random blood clots for a couple days....here's what i think or think could be possible...it might be possible, that if u r constipated or have held ur poo for awhile, then get an erection or masturbate, it could disturb the veins on ur prostate...or if your sleepin with an erection and full bladder, i heard that could cause too much pressure in ur urethra and pop a blood vessel leading to blood in urine....i like the rest of you ahve to do the same thing, abstanc\ance for about 7days unitl the tear heals.......****** thing to live with..any new info, post it

18 days ago, i had a bloody ejaculation. It wasnt mere red blood streak on the pearly white sperm. Blood was coming out of my ****.I freaked out, It was the first time. I somewhat calmed out after a quick google, then i learned of hematospermia. The next day upon waking up, i had thick, blood stains on my shorts and sheets. When i peed, it was red at first, then some small blood clots, then clear pee. In the afternoon after a nap, same thing, red pee, blood clot, clear pee. Typical hematospermia case.

3 days later, i found this forum. Some posts and cases calmed me out more, and I promised to also post my case to return the favor. I also had urinalysis done as told by a family doctor, everything was normal, though i haven't been to a urologist and had my prostate checked. Sometime maybe.

I am 40, healthy, non-smoker. I believe mine was the above mentioned TRAUMA somewhere onto the linings of urethra, whatever that is. It happend on a rough sex. This may sound funny and graphic, i was pumping hard when suddenly a scene in my mind flashed which made my penis inside go soft, i was pumping a tight hole with a soft ****-this i believe stretched and bended some urethran linings in my penis and bursted a blood vessel. Then out comes blood. Everywhere, on the sheets, the floor.. imagine that. AAAAAAAAARGH!

Just to make sure it wont happen again, i followed the advice mentioned above: been celibate for the past 18 days, and avoided sexual stimulation (That BLOODY scene in my mind is more than enough to limpout hardons ), to make sure that trauma healed. Well i guess it did. Last night no freakin blood, (imagine the anxiety before cummin). I was totally gentle.

I am thankful for this forum, and to those who took time to share their experiences, thank you. I will again come back to read and post for updates etc. and I guess i will remain and try to be demure from now on :D

Whats good,
                 Unfortunately I am another one to add to the list. I am a 18 year old college student and last week Wednesday while I was about to have intercourse with a girl, I realized there wasnt a condom anywhere to be found. Instead of risking it, I decided to just try something new and have dry sex. Basically what I did was pound her from behind without inserting my penis and have her boune on my penis which wasnt inserted. It took me a while to ejaculate when I was masturbating on her back but I had my usual heavy squirt of semen. Ten minutes after this encounter when I got back to my room I pissed virtually pure blood, I wasnt too sure if any clots was in the blood I urinated because I was so frightened I flushed it immediately. I then had a shower and went online where I saw all these posts and just figured it was a one time thing that would go away. I masturbated twice last week thursday everything was fine, once on friday everything was fine again, but on Saturday after what I would describe as a fairly intense session I my semen had a red blood stain to it and I jus knew it was back. After I ejaculated, I wanted to urinate which is really not normal for me and I urinated virtually pure blood with about two blood clots in it.On Sunday I masturbated again, took it much easier this time and there was no blood in semen or my urine after the jerk off session. Tonight now, I masturbated again, much to my relief my semen was its usual color. I went to urinate after I masturbated, my urine was its normal color with the exception of one blood clot which was present in it. Yes, I have made a doctor's appointment for Thursday and I am extremely worried about this all. It is a very frustrating issue which if it persists will virtually ruin my fairly young sex life. I am just hoping we can come to the root of the problem. I will provide some information which might be valuable to this whole topic...


1.) I am extremely hypersexual on average I masturbate about 5 times a week, or most days which I dont have sex on for the past 2 years.

2.) I have recently started taking creatine pills and protein shakes, I also consume alot of water with it.

3.) This first happened after a session of heavy pounding/dry humping something I never tried before.

4.)  First case blood in urine after ejaculation only, second case blood in semen and urine, third case blood clot in urine only...



I really hope we can make something out of this all...

I am going to abstain for masturbation and sex for the next 2 weeks, and I will post the results of my doctors visit on Thursday..

I too have experienced this, twice. This first time it happened I ejaculated perfect white looking semen then I had another course and nothing but blood came up shooting out, it was terrible. I drank alot of water to rule out bladder problems and I was right, my bladder was ok because no blood came after I went peepee. Note I felt no pain, thank God.

Naturally I was afraid to ever ejaculate again, but I tested myself about 2 weeks after and I had perfect semen white and pearly. but during those two weeks I had pain in my groin area for days, it wasn't a crippling pain but it was uncomfortable. Two weeks after I tested again and I noticed this time blood came out immediately. After which I could pee so i forced and there came a huge clot i almost fainted, it was horribly big. It has been 2 months since and I haven't masturbated since.

This is what I think. The problem may lie (for me) not in the urethra because blood clots of that nature can't come from that small passage and further more, the blood clots that I passed couldn't have developed in a matter of minutes, it was linguring somewhere else. I think the problem lies with either the prostate or the vesicles that produce seminal fluid (not semen) Oh I am 25. It doesn't seem to be the vesicles that produce "pre ***" because when I get aroused to this day the pre *** comes out clear and pretty usual.

Solution
It is simple really. This issue needs time to heal, as any other trauma in the body that produces blood clots the area that was damaged needs to be healed and the clotting of the blood is a natural thing. Now, after the area has been healed the clot needs to be dissolved and this happens naturally over time, but there are some things you can do to speed up the process of the blood clots dissolving

1. Eat properly, just google how to get rid of blood clots naturally, this is because certain foods can help blood clots to stay and not dissolve, so find out the diet to help to get rid of them.
2. Anti-coagulant pills, I am not an advocate to taking drugs but this could help. I don't think you should take anti-coagulants after about 2 weeks about you have passed the blood, because, blood clots where there is damage is a good thing, it is what does the healing, but the problem is when the clot doesn't dissolve in time before you want to or actually have sexual intercourse. So give it 2 weeks to heal then take the anti-coagulant pills (Bayer Aspirin is an anti-coagulant) but see your doctor for dosage and don't be afraid to talk to your doctor about this, they specialize in embarrassing problems, if you want you can visit -----  www.actuallywork.com  ----- they specialize in providing solutions to embarrassing problems, which I think is very good.

See I am a christian and I shouldn't be watching porn or even masturbating, but I still did, I was even addicted to it, but the Lord works in mysterious ways and I see this problem as a blessing in disguise I trust Him to heal me properly. And I must say I haven't masturbated for 2 months and I am gr8. Just think your health or pleasure. If your having this problem and your girl leaves you because of it, she is ont deserving of you, love is not fleshy.  Try my solution it may just work for you.

Despite abstaining from sex, I still wake up with the usual salute..
Morning ... whatever you want to call it.. unfortunatly this thing which I can not controll set me back in the healing process. so the question I want to throw out there is;
Have any of you herd of a laser vascular treatment to find the recurring breaking blood vessle and FIX it?
I am pretty sure this is what is going on with me, and allthough I have usually won the battle by obstaining from activity for about 10 to 14 days. now Im breaking the vessle every time I have a morning erection.
Blood in the urine, clots, horror movie stuff, etc..
Im over it, and Im looking for a proceadure to repair or bypass the recurrently bursting blood vessle.

Glad to hear that I am not alone on this condition.
Urologist continues to say not to worry.
Had a kidney stone issue a few months ago.
Doctors had to resort to some invasive procedures, including some prostate reduction surgery.  
Never had any blood in semen/urine even during the several months waiting for the stone to pass or be removed.
The blood and big clots pass very quickly. The condition arises during arousal, sex and even once during a lap dance at a strip club.  
Happened only once while viewing photos on line and masturbating.  But only once.
It's pretty embarrasing for my partner ,  and pretty messy
any thought /solutions would be appreicated .

thanks everyone

I had a similar problem for over a year. Not one clear ejaculate in 14 months. Having read the posts on this site, I decided to try the two-week abstinence method. I am very pleased to report that it worked for me. The first time afterwards, there were trace amounts of old blood (brownish in colour), presumably left over from before it healed. But after that, it cleared up. Needless to say, my wife and I are very relieved. Thanks to everyone who shared their thoughts on this subject. I hope the abstinence method works for others as well.

Have had this problem for 26 years now, so it really isn't anything sinister otherwise I would be dead by now.

I won't bore you with all the details apart from :-

I went to urologist, he stuck the camera up my penis and had a good look around and didn't find anything.

I had this done another 2 times, the last time he put me out to it and had a real good look around.  

"Apparently" he made me aroused to open up the ejaculatory glands, upon ejaculation he noticed weakened blood vessels in the ejaculatory gland. He cauterized them while he was there.

According to the nurses I enjoyed the whole episode !!!

This fixed the bleeding for some years, it still happens every now and then.

I get this when:-

*I drink heaps of Red wine then have a big sex session. (engorged vessels)

*Wife gets very rough on top. ( Damaged vessel)

*I get very horny and hold back for ages.

I fix it by refraining from sex for a few days, gentle masturbation instead - (wife can assist here)

*Ensure you urinate ASAP after sex just in case.

As others have mentioned the blood clots get worse on every episode, and it's not a pleasant experience trying to pass them.

Thankyou very much for the forum - best topic on the web (for us anyway)

All the best

Lol...great post lad, made me feel better. I know it’s not funny but really… for the sake of sense of humor for all of us here, us who are having this problem, I just want to ask you this, do you sometimes laugh when you remember the first day you saw blood coming out your penis? I mean I was shocked, and every day I remember that night I just smile and shake my head.
So I woke up late at night and ran to the bathroom, we had sex before I went to bed after I remember the condom had a little blood,  so I thought  oh, my girl just started her period ...no big deal...so I am starting to pee one eye closed one eye half open so I don’t lose my sleep, next thing I see is I am peeing something looks like blood, then oh sh**, it’s  totally blood, I mean not dark urine but totally blood with clots flying everywhere...and the funny thing is that you don’t wanna scream or ask for help because you think to yourself “this Shi** is messed, this is totally f** up dude”
I will never forget that day, it was like a dream and my face was like what the f*** is this stuff coming out of me, I wish someone had a camera to my face and just saw how confused my face looked, if there is a point in life when you really have to say “WTF” ...one of those days is the first day you pee blood.

Well, here is what to do to be safe and happy
Drink water before sex at least one 16oz glass full. This will increase your ability to pee after sex. Once you ***, sneak out, take the condom off and make sure you pee at least within 10min after sex, the earlier the better. If you follow this simple rule you will experience few small clots while most of the time just a clot free blood stained urine (easy peasy). Drink another glass of water and do not go to bed until you pee again.  If you go for round two make sure you do the same exact thing. And to be honest, two rounds per night for us it’s just about at the limit level.

Another Optional precautions;
Avoid pumping and grinding too much, have simple and relax sex. If possible avoid long foreplays; they make you have an erection for a longer time which can lead to Massive post-ejaculation hematuria (more blood). If you follow these simple rules and you can have sex almost every day without experiencing a baseball size clots....ouch!! Altheas take 4 aspirin or ibuprofen almost every time before you have sex. This will lower immediate inflammation reaction, hence not worsening your condition by having sex every day.

Lol...great post lads, made me feel better. I know it’s not funny but really… for once and for the sake of sense of humor especially for all of us here who are having this problem, I just want to ask you this; do you remember the first day you saw blood coming out your penis? I was shocked, and every day I remember that night I just smile and shake my head.
So this is how it went, I woke up late at night and ran to the bathroom, my ex and I had sex before we went to bed. I also remember seeing a little blood on the condom when I pulled it off, which I thought, oh, my girl just starting her period ... so, no big deal...
So I am in the bathroom half asleep, starting to pee with one eye closed one eye half open, next thing I see is my pee is red, it looks like I am peeing something that looks like blood, then I said Oh sh**, it’s  totally blood dude, I mean this is totally blood dude, then I start seing all these clots flying everywhere...and the funny thing was that, when you go through all this experience, you really don’t want to scream or ask for help because you know that this is some totally  F**ed up  Shi** and nobody needs to know about this. Because you think to yourself I am probably the only living male human in the world who have ever done this kinda mess, oh God! oh God! WTF? WTF is this stuff coming out of me?
And then you cut your pee and hold it , and think for a second, oh No! oh No! …..and then you blow your last leach size clot and that’s when the pain hits you, and you don’t know wheather to run back in the room or clean the mess up first, I need Morphin you say to yourself, oh God! What’s coming next, if I just peed blood what’s coming next? And now you are totally awake....lol
I will never forget that day, it was like I was dreaming and my face was like WTF? I wish someone had a camera to my face so I could see how confused my face looked; if there is a point in life where I really deserve to say “WTF” ...this day was it.

ANYWAYS, SO HERE IS A QUICK ADVISE:
Drink water before sex at least one 16oz glass full. This will increase your ability to pee after sex. Once you ***, sneak out the condom and make sure you pee at least within 10min after sex, the earlier the better. If you follow these simple rules you will experience few small clots to the extremes and most times no clots at all (easy peasy). Drink another glass of water and do not go to bed until you pee again.

If you go for round two make sure you do the same exact thing. And to be honest, two rounds per night for us it’s just about the limit level, so don’t push it

Optional precautions;
Avoid pumping and grinding too much, have simple and relax sex. If possible avoid long foreplays; they make you have an errection longer which can lead to Massive post-ejaculation hematuria (more blood). If you follow these simple rules and you can have sex almost every day without experiencing a baseball size clots....ouch!!  

Altheas take 4 aspirin or ibuprofen almost every time before you have sex. This will lower immediate inflammation reaction, hence not worsening your condition by having sex every day.

I am proud for you dealing with this problem for as long as 7 yrs, you should definitely take a bow.  I have a question for you;
Some of the previous members have mentioned an ON and OFF bleeding (I know “bleeding” doesn’t sound like the right word here, especially for men...lol).  Anyways, so did this problem occur to you every time you had sex since 2003, or was it ON and OFF?

TO ALL,
I just read this urologist’s research paper, it’s not officially published but on its way. It suggests that a laser treatment to the prostate is a possible treatment.
Introduction:
You have to consider that it is our prostate’s weak veins that begin to bleed every time we have a hard erection. Once they bleed, the blood gets mixed up with the sperm and the precum to make a bloody semen, *(precum originates from the prostate). And that’s why bleeding magnitude sometimes depends on how exited we were before sex. Most of the time masturbation doesn’t cause maximum excitation and that’s why some people experience clean (blood free) semen after masturbating but always bloody after sex.
So far there is no ANY association between our problem and prostate cancer. Urologists refer our problem as “post-ejaculation hematuria”. And since another disorder called hemospermia also results to bloody sperms, sometimes these two disorders are confused. But neither one of these two problems is associated with infertility problems or prostate cancer.
Most of the time hemospermia is caused by infection, that’s why most Doctors test for STD’s when we go see them. However, these two cases (post-ejaculation hematuria  vs hemospermia) are totally different. Some of us in this forum may have one but not the other, but the majority of us has here, as far as I have read the stories, we all suffer from ‘post-ejaculation hematuria’. This is the result of weak bleeding prostate veins during penis erection and excitement. The  blood keep on flowing out while we are erect, but it cannot get out, so it is stuck up there and get clogged up to a clots which we finally pee out.  
Anyways, this research paper suggested that a laser treatment solved our problem. We don’t need to celebrate yet, this it’s just a light on the other side of the tunnel.

I am VERY glad I found this forum....I just got married about 4 months ago, and just had the experience of a bloody ejaculation followed by a pee that ended in a handful of small blood clots. We were both virgins when we got married, so STD's were out of the question, so I had the WTF expression as I peed in the shower right after we had sex. I knew something was different when I ejaculated this time because I had a slight burning sensation as I did and thought I might have been peeing (which would have been even more embarrassing). I noticed a little blood stained liquid on the sheets and thought for sure it was my wife since this is about that time of the month. But then once I peed, I realized it was me. Has anyone else ever had a burning sensation as they ejaculated?

Aussie_R, your post seemed particularly interesting to me. The reason is that typical intercourse is still really painful for my wife (I'm too big for her), and so a way we found that seemed to at least get the job done, is that she often gets on top and 'bumps & grinds" until we both orgasm. So in the process of that, I often hold back for extended periods to wait for her to get hers, and she also gets pretty rough while she's at it. You mentioned both of those as potential causes...The only other thing that I'm wondering if it had an effect was that we took some 4 wheelers out riding yesterday on a pretty intense mountain trail that had us bumping around quite a bit, but I didn't ever hurt my groin. Maybe the bumping caused some trauma?

I'm 26, and having this blood in the semen thing happen so soon (4 months) into my sex life is a little scary, and the thought of abstinence as a newly wed...well that kinda puts a damper on things since I'm finally just getting introduced into the world of getting laid every day. lol. But if that's what it takes....ugh. I guess I just gotta buckle down and ride it out. I'll definitely make a stop at the doctors office this week, and be checking this forum again. Thanks for your posts!

I happened to notice today (I'm 60 ish yrs old) pink semen. This was a first form me. I rarely look so it could have been going on here and there before. Needless to say I got very concerned... saw doctor... she examioned prostate, etc. and thought ther is likely no major issue but did give me a PSA test which will come back in a week or so. First, these forums are great because I now see that this blood in semen problem appears to be somewhat common, judging from the number of comments here. Second, she is from Holland originally and saw this fairly frequently in Holland in all ages. Really! She said its because everyone there bikes a lot. I do too... 3 to 4 times a week all year round. I still await the PSA test results. But this sight is invaluable for helping one put things into a bit of perspective. I would say the average male (lke me) knows nothing about this condition until it happens. I also think some of the comments above make a lot of sense for causing a tear in seminal or penile blood vessels, namely when the pressure builds up as you hold back. I expereinced this before I ejaculated. Thanks, boys!

i first had this problem last night. i was having sex with the girlfriend but didnt ejaculate, after intercourse i went straight to the bathroom to only have bright red urine with clots half way through. i went straight to the ER.i passed a sample which had high blood content but no clots, then 4 or 5 more samples with no blood or clots at all.

a few things i need to consider is i was very intoxicated during sex and have been each night for the past 10 days (irresponsible i know) this combined with poor diet, extreme lack of sleep and having just moved house possibly might of enraged the situation, i also am a carrier of herpes simplex and i believe am about to have an outbreak... would this affect the blood vessels due to it being an infection? if you have any help for me i would appreciate it. i am abstaining for a few days as my girlfriend is on her period now, and have also drank 2 litres of water today and started vitamin C tablets. i am also only 24.

I too will abstain. Even at 60 + yrs old this will be no minor issue -but for the long term good of my own health-- I'll obviously get over it. It does need a chance to heal like any tear, which I'm hoping this is all it is. I'm planning to abstain a good month or two... I keep reminding myself that I am master of my house. Any bets?

Let's keep adding a more concise, personal observation by including statistics which I will start:

Asian Male
35
Fair and healthy diet/sex life, exercise. (Not smoke, occassional beer wine.)
Masturbate on a regular basis (2 times a day average since early teens).

Problem:  It started a week before July 4th weekend 2010. Woke up at 7:30am, urinated and manured no problem. 30 minutes later, slight pain on lower left stomach. (I have not eaten yet.) The pain increased from range 1 to range 10 by 12am. Rushed to the emergency (no insurance) and was administered painkillers, collected urine which was dark brown in color, and CTscan.  Results state that I have UTI and Kidney stone.  Released from the hospital after 5 hours.  Prescribed antibiotics (Bactrim)for a week along with (painkiller pills if necessary).  Doctor says to drink lots of water and to return if the pain continues for a week.  The pain was sporadic (sometimes I took painkillers and sometimes the pain was bearable).  I was able to collect a tiny brownish particle which is being analyzed.

It has been over two weeks now since the emergency room. Slight pain seems to appear as soon as I get hungry. An hour after eating, the pain will go away.  I'm off the antibiotic and am taking cranberry pills for the UTI.  There is a burning sensation in my urethra after urinating.  Since my emergency room episode on 6/25/10, I probably masturbated ten times.  (One of which was 3 times in a two hour period about 2 days ago July 9.)
This morning, Sunday July 11, I got hungry, experienced the slight pain, ate, and the pain went away. BUT, AFTER I URINATED, THE LAST DROP HAD A MIXTURE OF BLOOD.  Burning sensation between my anus and balls (Urethra) as usual.  I have been drinking enough water. When I urinated a few minutes later, 1 very tiny blood clot residue/particle came out.  (Burning sensation still present after.)  Again, another tiny string/particle or residue clot came out after urinating.  No other signs of blood has appeared so far after 3 hours.

I will keep observing and share it.  Since I have no insurance and do not qualify for any medical, I will wait and rely on my own judgment call.  Will see the neighborhood care after collecting more personal data.

(First time I ever experienced a tiny trace of blood in my urine.  I will not masturbate/ejaculate for a week to see if blood will come out by urine alone.)

Glad to have found this thread! just happened again to me.

active sex life. I've had this happen 5 times in 8 years. 4 different girls. One common occurrence is the "tightness"
. I'm told my penis is larger than normal/girth/head. Maybe comes into play??
- Girl on top, me on chair
- doggie style
- with girl who hadn't had intercourse in 2 years
All girls are petite, not sure if that matters, maybe does per my theory of "size"

basically what I feel is as I build to orgasm, this pressure starts to build. But it's difficult to notice, and difficult to stop intercourse. (has never occurred from oral or masturbation). I ejaculate, strictly semen, and then at the end there may be some blood, usually it's a little, once it was a lot, and once it even dripped later into the night. Always urinating is no/very light pain, and a blood clot washes away. That's it, no more. I may be "out of commission" for a few days, but things return back to normal. I've noticed a dark spot on the side of my penis shaft, not sure if that is the blood clot area, My personal theory is that this is a blood vessel that keeps popping, but I don't know for sure. Last Dr said not to worry as it's rare, no pain, and returns to normal. Didn't recommend anything further/surgery as it's quite a sensitive area.  I am in a new city now and seeing a new Doctor this month.  I wish this would go away as I do enjoy "rough" sex, multiple positions, etc etc, but feel this 'problem' hinders me...

Someone mentioned PSA. In the middle of the 8 year span, 2006. I did have my PSA measured, to be slightly high. I had a 2.8 which was high for my age. Had it tested again a few months later, again 2.8. Was put on an Antibiotic - Levaquin, I don't remember but I think the PSA was the same after this I was told 2.1-2.5 is normal

i'll update more as I find out more...fingers crossed for next time, for everyone

Hi again. I'm the 60 + guy from early July who said he'd abstain for one or two months so that whatever caused teh blood in ejaculate could heal. Anyway, I gave in a few times already, partly to see if there was blood. There hasn't been any since that time... BUT THIS SEEMS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM which is just not talked about. Also, when a man is highly stimulated, perhaps the stimulation, play, and pleasure sometimes causes the penis to be stretched and pulled to the point of minor internal (but harmless) hemoraging. I do not know for sure and am still awaiting the results of my doctor's tests on me. But, again, in perusing the above replies this is apparently a common problem brought to awareness only due to the internet.

met with my doctors colleague, female, told her the problem,and just like my male Dr from before she is "not worried". It does occur infrequently, and there is no/minimal pain.  I have a Physical scheduled next month and will bring it up with another male Doctor, though they are not worried, I am not comfortable!

Okay well like all guys im a horny dude.  I was masturbating in bed and fantasizing about what a lady feels like when she cums.  I started trying to rub the area around where the clitoris is on a lady trying to see if I could make myself *** the way they do well jacking off some.  I felt a sensation like maybe it was working.  I kept doing it.  I had this feeling like maybe this wasnt good.  But I was feeling good so I just kept doing it.  When I came I ejaculated *** and blood and it was not just a little.  I have been peeing blood for the past two hours on and off blood mixed with urine.  I have put an ice pack on myself and have been chugging tons of water.  I have never had blood in my urine except for maybe twice and very little barely noticeable.  I hurt myself I am sure there was some kind of damage done inside me.  Rough sex seems to be a precursor for this and now Im just waiting.  I will keep posting.  I dont know but I think it will heal.  It doesnt hurt but definitely scarry.  I just about passed out when I saw it.  I am a trained Emergency Medical Tech and I know what the signs of shock are.  I went into shock.  I had to treat myself. I am on a very low income so I am going to wait this out and treat myself.  I am not drinking alcohol and no sex.  Say lavee lavee.  Damn  this is not cool.  I would definitely agree with everyone that you should not take aspirin or any pain killers and definitely use ice.  It will slow the bleeding and encourage healing.  Slam tons of water to.  I guess my concern is if there is bleeding in a seminal vesicle or such would it block my sperm.  Be careful you guys.  Definitely Scarry Crap but I am certain it is curable.  This makes sense with any of you guys who have been working out and this has happened.  Stressing these areas I was rubbing obviously injuring myself, could also be caused by hard workouts i am sure if the workout tensed this region or crushed this region in any way.  Good luck all.  lay down and apply cold pack to this region.  Be easy on yourself.  Dont stress your body.  No blood thinners!  K guys good luck to us all.

yo wzup, nice to see a topic and this with many similar stories. I've had similar experiences like most of you here after having real sex.(never with masturbation). ejeculating blood and peeing blood, with and withouth bloodcloth, biggest cloth was like a full pinky finger. that was the scariest thing ever in my life.
I read a post here about someone peing a blood cloth with the size of a baseball. That totally scarerd the **** out of me damn it.
Did the same song and dance, prostate check, a freaking camera in my **** to check everything out, they never found anything. medication (proscar) never helped.  frustrating. So I was doing some thinking myself like some of y' all asking myself what the F was the cause. I think small internal injuries in the penis by simply having sex is the most plausible thing..strange thing is there is never any pain involved. had this **** for 6 years on and off. AND THEN THE BREAKTROUGH CAME! I married a lovely muslim lady and become one too and got circumsized. Since that day I almost never experienced this nightmare again. 2 years later now I've only had maybe 3 cases of this but very very little with NO BLOODCLOTH thank god. and when it happened I just had fast sex under 20 minutes for 4 days and that is enough to heal! I'm a changed man and canenjoy sex like normal human now. still every toilet visit after sex I will be scared, that never goes away. but the sex is good.
My mom acknowledged that when I was 5 years old the doctors recomended a circumsision due tie tight forskin. so having tight for skin and hard erections probably did damage  my penis resulting in all the above. again this is just my theory but it's the only thing that makes sense up to now. I Wonder if all people in this forum with this issue have foreskin???

Had my PSA count come back-- slightly elevated but normal (3.5). Supposed to go back & have it checked in 3 months. There has been no repeat incidents since I reported mine in July. By the way, to EXBLOODBUSTA, I was circumcized right after I was born. However, the overly stretched internal blood vessels could 'pop' w/ a minor hemorage my MD acknowledged-- circumcized or not.  Agin, she's seen this before. Best wishes!
