Yesterday I noticed a small red blood spot in my ejaculate after masturbation. Today ejaculate had a slight pink tinge. No pain and this is the first time. I searched on line and most comments were not to worry but I would like your advice. I am in middle sixties. Thank you


Hematospermia (blood in the semen) is a common condition. You’re correct for most people it is nothing to worry about as it is rare for there to be a serious medical condition to cause this.

In some situations blood in the semen can be a sign of a more serious condition. Given this I would just recommend seeing your family doctor about what happened. They would be able to make sure there is nothing serious going on.

Metrovan Urology has a good information page on Hematospermia.
