I'm 16 years old, and a mate. I'm not sexually active.
About 5-6 days ago, my semen was red (from what i've read it's obviously blood). I booked an appointment, but my advise online was to lay off masturbating for 3 days or so I did, today I masturbated again and my semen was brown.
From what i've read, this means the blood is dried up or old?
I have no pain or anything like that. However, i'm not exactly sure what this means? Does it mean because it's gone brown the bleeding will stop? Should I masturbate a bit more to get rid of it or not do it at all?
How are you? What other symptoms are present? Blood in the semen or hematospermia may indeed be the result of trauma, infection, obstruction, to the testicles or prostate, or underlying medical condition. Some activities that put pressure on the testicles, such as strenuous sexual activity or straining to ejaculate may also be responsible. If there are no other symptoms such as intense pain, this is usually not serious and resolves after a few days. Avoid strenuous activity including masturbation may help. However, if it persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
