A prostate needle biopsy causes scarring in prostate tissue, resulting in the release of blood into the urine or semen. One can find in the medical literature that it is not rare for a man to still have blood in his semen as long as two or three months
after a prostatic biopsy. The literature also consistently reports, however, that the red color typically turns to a brown over time, and that if the blood becomes more bright red (rather than rust colored or brown), it may indicate that the situation is being aggravated.
My personal experience was that I had "a flood" of very darkly-reddened semen in my first post-biopsy ejaculate, but essentially none after that. My urologist told me to expect it for a month. Flygeeser
seems to have had a little longer experience, but apparently eventually cleared up fine.
If it seems to be getting worse (more blood, rather than less), or if it is brighter red (like fresher blood), then it might be worth a call to your urologist's office. Otherwise, you don't seem to be far outside of the expected range.
, the experience of blood showing up in semen on it's own (not
after a prostate needle biopsy, or some other "assignable cause") is completely different, although if it shows up infrequently most literature says it is not usually cause for great concern. What I've seen written was "Check with your doctor if it has not cleared up within a few days." Even if it does clear up quickly on it's own, I would mention it to my doctor on the next regular visit.
