happy senior man

For the past year or so I’ve had blood in my semen. I’ve visited my Dr and after some tests (semen culture) cancer was ruled out. I was told that it would be a long time before it went away. I’m 54 and have recently started to experience no morning erections unless stimulated and not so firm erections at times. Do you think the blood in the semen can cause ED? Thank you.

    I’m not a doctor, but blood in semen is fairly common. However, it’s not common for it to last for a year. I’m glad your doctor ruled out cancer, but I urge you to ask your doctor for a referral to a urologist or find a urologist yourself. I think you would benefit from evaluation by an expert in the genito-urinary tract.

    I’m sorry that your morning erections have faded and that your erections are less firm than they used to be. That’s totally normal for a man of 54. In fact, many men notice similar erection changes earlier in life. The body is very energy-efficient. As men’s reproductive years end, the body invests less energy in men’s sperm-injection system, that is, erections. However, fading erections DO NOT kill sexual pleasure or men’s ability to enjoy lovemaking and have earthquake orgasms.

    But middle-age erections become increasingly susceptible to emotional stress. Anxiety triggers release of stress hormones that narrow the arteries that carry blood into the penis. Less blood flows in, which means softer, balkier erections. Your situation—blood in your semen for an unusually long time—may be adding enough stress to your life to make normal age-related erection changes worse. No guarantees, but it’s possible that resolving your medical issue might relieve your stress and improve your erections.

    If you have difficulty finding a urologist near you, I suggest you visit the Sexual Medicine Society of North America.

    I wish you great sex.
