Hematospermia: what causes blood in sperm

Date:2011-12-10 click:

 Hematospermia is the medical term for bloody sperm (blood in semen). Even though most of us never heard of it, it seems to have been around for a long time. 

There are a number of things that can cause bloody sperm: prostatitis(inflamation of the prostate gland), infection, blockage, injury or impact anywhere in the male reproductive system.
Many men, when they see blood in their semen, first think, "Oh no. Prostate cancer." Although it is possible, prostate cancer rarely causes blood in semen.
Actually, most blood in semen is of unknown origin in Western meidcine.
It is quite a common occurance in sexually active men in thier 30s. But, it happens to teenagers and old men as well.
If the tissues were stronger, like the muscles, a normal kick there would not be very painful.
Because the testicles, seminal vesicles, urethra, prostate gland, epididymis, and the perineum are not stong tissues (like muscle), any impact or strain can cause a small blood vessel to break and put blood into the seminal fluid.
What is termed "exhausted love making" can cause bloody sperm. Without sufficient semen in the seminal vesicles, the mucous membranes inside the seminal vesicles strain on ejaculation. Again, just like when you blow your nose too often or too hard, the delicate mucous membranes can rupture and bleed.
If infection is the cause of blood in semen, an antibiotic can usually clear it up easily. If blockage is the cause, Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is needed.
