Why is my semen color brownish red ?

I have had some brownish redish discolor in my seman for the past week. I do not have any pain when going to the bathroom or any other pains at all just the discoloration in my seman. I am only 23 years old and this has never happened before. What could this be? How long will it last? Is this serious?

Welcome to HCM.
Most likely it is blood in the semen. In most of the cases no cause could be found for it. It may be caused by a small stone in the seminal duct or swelling of the seminal vesicle. If it recurs you must consult an urologist who will have to examine you, do the necessary tests, including ultrasound study of seminal vesicles to try to find out the cause. It is not serious and don't worry. But if it recurs it will be a good idea to pay a visit to an urologist.
Wish you all the Best.
