User avatar Hi there,

I think you should have it checked immediately. Generally speaking blood in sperm is caused by either an inflammation of the prostate (bleeding at the begining of the ejaculate) or the seminal vesicles (bleeding at the end of the ejaculate).

The extent of trauma to these organs needs to be assessed to be sure and safe. Hopefully it would be nothing to worry about.

Good luck and keep us updated.
