Here are some...: What described is still called hematospermia or hemospermia denoting blood mixed with semen, which, for decades, has terrified all affected men & puzzled all professionals in the field; but fortunately, almost all the available studies failed to reveal any significant concern if ok in history & DRE(digital rectal exam). More? Seek pro-evaluation & counseling timely. So. most likely, you are okay.
