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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does IgA nephropathy always cause blood in urine when you are having colds? Is hematuria always present in urinalysis?
Went to ER for severe lower right ab pain and back pain. Dr said I had kidney stone and hematuria. Did urine and blood tests only but no cat scan, why?
See answer: Though symptoms and u/a may be suggestive, one cannot reliably make the diagnosis of a kidney stone without some type of an imaging study (kub, ultrasound, ct) with a non-contrast ct scan being the most accurate and reliable imaging study to determine the presence, location, and size approximation of a stone as well as to potentially rule out other causes of pain and hematuria. ...Read more
