Blood in my semen after intercourse what could that be? It happened only once
Welcome and thanks for your question , in most cases, specially if this one time event , nothing serious is involved and goes away on its own, so there is no need to be concerned or worried about this .
After vigorous sexual activity , some small blood vessel could burst and that blood could leak inside your urethra and appear in your semen or urine .
If this happens again or you develop additional symptoms like burning urine , fever or ejaculation problems You should consult your doctor for a further medical evaluation.
In most cases ,specially in young men an infection is involved ( prostatitis ,epididymitis , urinary tract infection or STD ( sexually transmittable disease ) ).Less common factors are kidney, urinary tract or bladder masses , low platelets ,blood coagulation disorders or medications.
Your doctor will perform some tests including an urine test , some image tests including a pelvic ultrasound , PSA levels , STD tests and blood tests to determine what is producing this bleeding so you can be treated properly .
If this happened only one time , there is no need to be concerned .
