What causes blood in semen?

I have blood in my semen. It is quite dark (brown), sometimes with some red blood as well. It has persisted for 2-3 months now. Lab tests show no infection or blood in my urine. Is it ok for me to ejaculate and have intercourse with my wife while this condition persists? I have a referral to a urologist, but it may take 2 or 3 months to see him.
