Blood : Blood in urine could occur as a result of trauma or a medical condition. Throughout the genitilia, there are many areas and blood vessels that could be broken, leading to blood in the urine or semen. Items that could cause trauma and blood in the urine could be aggressive sex or masterbation, interrupted sex, kidney stones, prostatitis or a procedural biopsy on the testicles/kidney/bladder. Medical conditions that can cause blood in the urine include: side effects of blood thinners, stds such as chlamydia/genital herpes/warts, prostate cancer or bladder cancer. Since this is an ongoing condition for your boyfriend, it is suggested that he see his doctor to determine what the cause is. If there is an infection or trauma going on, it is important to get it assessed.

Hematuria: Blood in the urine is never normal. Although this most likely is secondary to something simple like prostatitis, i would recommend he see a urologist for possible cystourethroscopy. This can generally be done in the office.
