What is the treatment?

Patients may freak out after finding blood discharge in their semen. However, the cause for the same may turn out to be minor. So, in case of blood in semen or haematospermia, it is best to first figure out what the cause is behind the discharge. There are essentially two forms of the disease.

The first is known as primary haematospermia. In such a case, the blood discharge in semen does not arise from an underlying condition. In fact, for these patients haematospermia is the only symptom and therefore no treatment is recommended. Usually, the blood discharge stops after a few weeks without any medication.

Another form of the disease is known as secondary haematospermia. This means that the blood in the semen is caused by an underlying disorder or disease, such as an infection or even prostate cancer. In such cases, the underlying condition must be treated to stop the blood discharge in semen. For infections, a course of antibiotics may be prescribed to the patient.

Similarly, if physicians diagnose an inflammation as the underlying cause for the haematospermia, they may prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs to the patient. In some rare cases, blood discharge in the semen may also be indicative of a sexually transmitted disease or prostate cancer.

How is the treatment done?

If you notice bloody discharge in your semen, visit a doctor. The doctor will likely ask you to undergo some tests. These tests will help diagnose the problem better. If the tests reveal no underlying condition, the patient will not be prescribed drugs of any kind. However, if the tests do show an underlying problem, doctors will begin treatment for that disorder, which should get rid of the haematospermia.

In case of secondary haematospermia, the underlying disease or condition is treated. This condition may be a minor one. For instance, the blood in semen may be a side effect of an infection in the urinary tract. For this, doctors will prescribe antibiotics, which will help reduce the effects of infection, and thus the haematospermia.

Similarly, if the condition is caused because of inflammation, anti-inflammatory drugs may be prescribed. High blood pressure, liver disorders and STDs may also be the culprit. These can also be treated to get rid of the bloody semen discharge. In rare cases, the condition may stem from prostate cancer. However, this type of cancer is not commonly diagnosed in men.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

Treatment is only needed for those patients who have an underlying condition responsible for the blood in the semen. In case of secondary haematospermia, doctors will treat the underlying disorder in a bid to cure the issue.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

People who do not have bloody discharge in their semen are not qualified for the treatment. Patients who have been diagnosed with primary haematospermia are also unqualified to receive treatment. For these people, the bleeding usually stops naturally after a couple of weeks.

Are there any side effects?

There are no known side-effects to the haematospermia treatments. However, people experiencing haematospermia as a result of prostate cancer may experience certain side effects from the cancer treatment.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

There are no known side-effects to the haematospermia treatments. However, people experiencing haematospermia as a result of prostate cancer may experience certain side effects from the cancer treatment.

How long does it take to recover?

Primary haematospermia usually gets resolved within a couple of weeks. Secondary form of the condition however, may take longer to be cured. Treatment duration depends on the severity of the underlying cause. For instance, infection related haematospermia may be resolved in a few days, while STD related haematospermia treatment may take longer.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

Information not available

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

While the treatment will cure haematospermia, there is no guarantee that the disorder will not return in the future due to some other underlying cause.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

No other tested methods of treatment exist for haematospermia. This is mainly because the condition is not that serious and does not warrant alternate form of remedies.
