Hematospermia Treatment in Charleston, SC
The physicians at Lowcountry Urology Clinics of Charleston SC have years of experience in the causes, detection and treatment of hematospermia, or blood in your semen or ejaculate. Here are answers to a few commonly asked questions about hematospermia.
What is hematospermia?
Hematospermia is the presence of blood in your semen or ejaculate.
What causes hematospermia?
Hematospermia sometimes results from an inflamed or narrowed urethra, an infected prostate, or some kind of congenital bleeding disorder. Sometimes it occurs after a procedure like a prostate massage.
How do you treat hematospermia?
Your Urologist will want to rule out the possible causes listed above. Sometimes hematospermia just happens (what we call an idiopathic condition, meaning no known cause.) In these cases, your urologist may prescribe tetracycline to deal with possible infection.
