There are many medications that list "Hematuria" (blood in urine) as an adverse affect. If you can tell me which medications you are on, I could possibly check and see if hematuria is listed as an adverse reaction for that particular drug.

I gave a urinre sample @ the ER 2 nights ago and they said there was no infections
Thanks for the reply
None of the drugs you gave the names of list hematuria as a side effect/adverse reaction. The main drugs that cause hematuria are blood thinners such as Coumadin, Lovenox, Aspirin (which you say you do not take that often), Heparin and and the anti-cancer drug, Cytoxan. Sometimes blood in the urine can be caused by an enlarged prostate. With the absence of any infection, this might be worth investigating. Anothing cause could be kidney disease. I would suggest that you follow up with your regular Dr for a Prostate exam and PSA levels to be checked. Your Dr might also run some labs on your urine to determine your kidney function. I would not be extremely concerned at this point, but would definitely follow up.
******ADDITION-I see you added after I finished typing my answer that you also had blood in the semen. This is also very suggestive of prostate involvement. I will address blood in the semen also since you mentioned it...
Hematospermia (or blood in the semen) can be causes by several different things. It can be caused by things like Prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate gland), urinary tract infection (which you said had been ruled out), epididymitis, ejuaculation duct obstructions, cysts, STD's, urethritis (inflammation of the urethra), and from having procedures like vasectomy. Pain, lower back pain, flank pain, swelling of the testes or groin area, tenderness, painful urination and ejaculations, fever, and blood in the urine.

One would normally see blood in the semen in rare cases shortly after a Vasectomy procedure-not this long out. To name a few STD's that could cause blood in the semen would include Gonorrhea and Chlymydia.
