Thanks Doctor
I think the black specs may be lint .
I have no pain at ejaculation,
the ejaculation was about 1 week after last.
I have seen GP and am having psa blood test and cytology
I had a cytology about 3 years ago and found haematoma , subsequent cystoscopy procedure found nothing , 2 subsequent cystology were clear .
I have health anxiety condition related to Obsessive compulsive disorder.
But will have the above tests anyway.
ThankyouWilliam

HI
Even if it is blood in semen , there is nothing to worry unless it is persisting for long time like weeks together. It always subsides with time and usually due to non specific inflammation of the prostate.
It is always better to do some tests to be on the safer side. PSA and urine cytology are definitely one of them. You can also request for a trans rectal ultrasound of the prostate in such cases.
Drinking plenty of water and occasionally a course of antibiotic is all which is needed for this harmless condition.
If you have any doubts, please let me know.
