Brief Answer: NO Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you so much for trusting us with your health query. I am so sorry to hear about this blood in your ejaculate. Blood in semen is never normal. However, some occurrences are just incidental and require no medical attention. I will suggest that you take a closer look at future semen to see if there is any blood in them. If that turns out to be the case,, then sending a sample to the laboratory for analysis would be a great idea. Finasteride would not cause blood in semen. This blood probably relates to one of the structures that the sperms cells/seminal fluid passes through before getting to the exterior. I hope you find this helpful. I wish you well.
