Can blood in semen be due to bloody urine? Had hematuria few months ago (got complete evaluation). Now, bloody semen. Could it mean there's hematuria?
Unlikely: It's unlikely for the blood in your semen to be due to hematuria unless you also urinated blood just before ejaculation Usually blood in the semen comes from the epididymis/prostate/urethra and not the bladder although since urine and semen both pass through the urethra it is not impossible for a little blood from the bladder to find it's way in the semen. I would see your Dr for a urinalysis. ...Read more

Terminal hematuria but dipstick & lab results normal. How do I know blood is in urine and not coming from vagina? Thanks.
Hi, you might want to ask ur doctor about three-tube test. Three consecutive samples of the urine stream are collected—the first few milliliters, midstream, and the last few milliliters in 3 different tubes which can determine the cause of hematuria,
also if you are worried about vaginal bleeding a pelvic exam can help determining the cause.
Good luck. ...Read more
26 f, microscopic hematuria detected inconsistently in urine tests. Blood tests show kidney function is fine. Should I be worried/see a urologist?
Constant hematuria: If you have no urinary tract infection, you need go to a urologist to assess your urinary tract. You will need a renal ultrasound and probably an intravenous pyelogram to see if there are any problems with your kidneys. If these studies show no problem, you will need to have the urologist do a cystoscopy so your urinary bladder's wall can be visualized to see if you have any abnormalities there. ...Read more
