Customer Question
My semen ejaculate was...

My semen ejaculate was coffee coloured, almost black. Is this serious, or just dead sperm and should I masturbate more to "clear the tubes" between sexual encounters?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Nothing unusual. I came and it as black.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I drink and smoke, and often go long periods without sex or masturbation. I'm 57.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?

No. It happened about a year ago.

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having coffee coloured, almost black semen ejaculate can be due to various causes.

Old blood turns brown and this may have caused brown or black to your semen.

Blood in semen is not a serious issue.The symptoms you have described of having blood in semen is called hemospermia.This can be due to inflammation,infection,blockage, or injury anywhere along the male reproductive tract.This can be due to a problem in testicles,prostate,epididymis or urethra.In some cases the cause cannot be determined.

The most probable cause of blood in semen(black-brown colored semen) at your age of 57 years is prostate gland disease.

Youneed following tests:

-Urinalysis and culture

-Semen analysis and culture

-Prostate gland examination

This is not related to masturbation or sexual intercourse.

This is not a serious or dangerous condition nor is an emergency.So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your urologist for these tests to know the exact cause of this & then accordingly then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
