Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .

Based on the facts that you have posted you have noticed blood in your ejaculate due to repeated infection of prostate (Prostatitis).

Consult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning of abdomen and pelvis
3) Serum PSA.
4) Semen examination and Semen culture .

Further treatment will depend upon result of these tests and final diagnosis.

In the mean time start taking Antibiotics like Doxicycline twice daily and later on switch on to appropriate antibiotic as per culture report.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
Dr.Patil.
