Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 8 months ago.

Dear customer,

Thanks for your reply.

Blood in the semen is called hematospermia. This condition though alarming, is a very common symptom, and is most commonly due to inflammation within the male reproductive tract (prostate or seminal vesicles), but can also be due to infection. Also in most cases no further diagnostic workup is needed, however, in some patients, hematospermia may be the first indicator of other urologic diseases. Therefore you need to consult with your doctor preferably a urologist, if this does not resolve itself in a week or two, or if there is severe bleeding, or if associated with other symptoms such as abdominal pain, and your doctor will just do a physical examination.

Hematospermia often resolves on its own, but even one episode of bleeding into the seminal fluid will take a few weeks to clear up completely.

Take care.

I didn't need any medication
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 8 months ago.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

In most cases no medication is needed, except if this is due to infection of prostate in which case antibiotics may be needed. Typically, the blood in semen will usually go away on its own. Please drink plenty of fluids.

How can I get antibiotic
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 8 months ago.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

In most cases antibiotic is not needed and can be harmful. Therefore only when needed in case of discharge or fever, this will be prescribed by your doctor.

You are not a doctor
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 8 months ago.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

I am a doctor and I prescribe antibiotics regularly to my patients after examining them and ordering the necessary investigations. However no doctor can prescribe antibiotics online and you need to see a doctor in your location to have a physical examination and your doctor will also prescribe antibiotics only when needed and not to every patient.
