Have hematospermia. PSA and urinalysis normal. Pain under the pubic bone. Had hernia surgery and vasectomy in the past. Are these related?

I ve been experiencing hematospermia for about 2-3 months. I saw a urologist , and my PSA is normal. I also had a urinalysis done, and I presume it was normal. Doctor prescribed an antibiotic and the symptoms went away for 2 weeks. The symptoms have returned. I called the urologist and he asked me to wait a few days to see if the condition improved. It hasn t, and I made a new appointment. There s not quite as much blood, but still very distinctly pink to red semen. In addition there s a dull pain just under the pubic bone. I m 53 years of age and otherwise healthy. About six years ago I had a hernia repair on the left side (inguinal). About 12 years ago I had a vasectomy . Are either of these potentially related?

Welcome to HCM.
They are not related.
High blood pressure and infection of the prostate or seminal vesicles are the common causes.
You doctor needs to looks for these and treat them.
