Question: Why is there blood in my semen after i masturbate
doctor
Answered by Dr. Kathy Robinson 30 minutes later
Brief Answer:
many possible causes

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for your question.
Hematospermia (blood in the semen) can be caused by many things. Luckily in most 23 year old men the causes are usually not something serious like cancer.
This can be caused by infections, trauma (even excessive masturbation), irritation of the seminal vesicles, bladder or prostate.
If this just happened once then it is probably not anything to worry about. If it happens recurrently you need to see a doctor and have an exam, urinalysis and possibly other testing to determine the cause.
Let me know if you have other questions.
Regards,
Dr. Robinson

Brief Answer:
yes that is possible

Detailed Answer:
Yes, and if it just happened that one time then it is probably just from an injured blood vessel and this will heal up on its own.

Brief Answer:
it will not hurt you

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for the follow up.
If this is just some bleeding from minor trauma, it will not hurt you to have sex but may just delay the healing. It would be best just to give things a rest for a few days at least
