Blood In Semen

Is It Caused By
Peyronies Disease?

If you have Peyronies Disease or a bent penis of any kind, getting Hematospermia (blood in your semen) on top of this can cause a lot of worry and distress.

It's Normally A Harmless Condition

First, you need to know that blood in semen is usually a harmless and painless condition.

Second, Peyronies Disease rarely causes it.

But when something goes wrong (like getting a bent penis) anything else that goes wrong in the same area is usually thought to be part of the original problem.

If your bent penis has been pulled too hard or twisted too hard during erection, and you are seeing BOTH blood in semen and blood in your urine, you may have torn your Urethra.

This can be very serious and you should seek medical assistance for this right away.

But, if there no trace of blood in your urine (a brownish or reddish color), and you are finding a small amount of blood in semen (usually pinkish or red) you probably have Hematospermia. This will normally clear up in about 1-3 days and is generally considered a harmless condition.

It's A Common Thing

Even though most men have never heard of hematospermia, it seems to have been around for a long time. Blood in semen was even written about by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine! (born 460 bc)

There are many different things that can cause Hematospermia: prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate gland), injury or impact anywhere in the male reproductive system, infection, blockage, etc...

When a man first sees blood in his semen he may think, "Oh no. Prostate cancer." That may be possible. But, not likely. Prostate cancer rarely causes bloody sperm.

The fact is: In most cases of Hematospermia, the cause is unknown. And it disappears in a few days.

This has happened to me 3 times in my lifetime. The first one scared the bejesus out of me! But all 3 times it just went away by itself in a matter of days.

The Good News is:

It will usually go away by itself in a few days.

Who Gets Hematospermia?

Although this is actually quite common, how often you may get blood in your semen is impossible to calculate. The reason for this is: most semen is ejaculated during vaginal intercourse.

You may have had it before and never even known it.

Hematospermia can happen to a man at any age. Young or old.

How It Happens

The male reproductive organs are very delicate. You know this if you ever were kicked or hit in the groin (I think every young boy has been!).

Sufficient impact can even happen on bicycles. When one of your feet slips off the pedal and your testicles crash onto the crossbar. Or, if you were hit there with a ball. etc... Any impact to your testicles can Hurt A Lot!! And it can cause some internal bleeding.

If our tissues were stronger in this area, like our muscles, a normal impact there would not be too painful.

But, the testicles, perineum, prostate gland, seminal vesicles, urethra, and epididymis, are very delicate tissues. Any impact may cause a small blood vessel to break. This can put some blood into the seminal fluid (semen).

Also, what is called "exhausted love making" can cause the condition. Without enough semen in the seminal vesicles, the mucous membranes inside these vesicles can strain during ejaculation.

This is just like when you blow your nose too often or too hard. The mucous membranes may rupture and bleed. We think nothing of it in our nose. In our semen we panic!

If your bloody ejaculations Persist

Hematospermia usually contains only a very small amount of blood and goes away by itself in a few days. And, it is usually no more serious than a common nose bleed.

If the condition lasts more than a few days, or is accompanied by pain, or if you see a lot of blood, you should go see your doctor immediately.

If an infection is the cause of your bleeding, an antibiotic usually clears it up pretty easily. If a blockage is the cause, then surgery may be necessary. That, fortunately, is not very common.

Strengthening Your Blood Vessels

Although any man can get an occasional bout of hematospermia, some men are more susceptible to it than others. This is usually because of weak blood vessels.

There are a few things you can do to strengthen your blood vessels.

First, eat only natural foods. Junk foods can weaken your blood vessels.

Vitamin C and Bioflavonoids strengthen the walls of the small blood vessels. If you have been experiencing blood in your semen or if you bruise easily, these vitamin supplements may be very helpful for you.

If you are a vegan vegetarian and you are getting Hematospermia, you may be missing necessary nutrients found only in animal fats. Contrary to popular opinion, animal fats are necessary to good long term health.

Essential nutrients in meat fats (saturated animal fats) and butter (NOT margarine!) also play an important role in the strength of human blood vessels just like Vitamin C and Bioflavonoids. The animal fats don't do this by coating the vessels.

Saturated animal fats actually contain specific health building nutrients that strengthen the cellular structures of the blood vessels. These nutrients are not found in any other fat sources. If you will not eat meat, fresh healthy butter can do the job.

It's Usually Nothing To Worry About!

If you have a bent penis and suddenly find you get a small amount of blood in semen, and not your urine, don't panic! Any man at any age can get this condition. And it will usually resolve by itself. Just like a nose bleed. And, blood in semen is usually a completely separate thing from the bending condition.

One Word of Caution:

Sometimes when a man puts too much stress on an erection, or a bent penis, serious internal injury can occur.

Hematospermia is one thing. A fractured penis is something else. And a fractured penis can be very serious and very painful.

So, if you are seeing more than a tiny amount of blood in your sperm, have a bruised looking penis, or if you are experiencing pain, or have any doubts, see your doctor immediately.

Be Well.....
