Blood in Semen
Apr 2, 2006

I am a 50yo Hiv+ man. Have been doing well for several years now, undetectable with about 500 T Cells. I think because of depression I have been very non sexual the past couple of years. Now when I do masterbate my semen seems to contain blood. It is usually a dark brown or deep reddish color. Has been so disturbing that it has caused me to not want to have sex with anyone out of fear of this. I have asked my Dr about this a few times and he just seems to pass it off as something that happens. Well its been happening for a couple of years now and it just doesn't seem normal. Is there some sort of test I should be asking for?

Response from Dr. Henry

Have had an evaluation by a urologist looking for prostate or vas deferens region related problems?
