Thanks for the query.
I understand you are worried about blood in semen. I can certainly help you with that.
Blood in semen also known as hematospermia is a common condition seen in men. Most often there is no obvious cause and it tends to settle down on its own just like a runny nose without any treatment. However if the symptoms continue beyond 3 weeks then the following things have to be investigated for
1. Infection of the urethra and seminal vesicles
2. Prostate exam
3. Reno vascular disease like hypertension
The best person to approach would be a Urologist. I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
