Hi people! I'm new here and I subscribed to this list because something very WEIRD happened to me a few minutes ago. I masturbated and my sperm came out in a different color. it's always been white and occasionally yellowish. But today it gave me the goose bumps when I saw its color: it was pinkish. I smelled it, and touched it to see if it looked like blood. Maybe a blood-vessel had blown inside my penis...I don't know. But the truth is that it didn't seem to be blood at all!
Please somebody help me! I need to know if anybody has had this "experience" or had seen something similar to it. I'm seeing a doctor next week, but I need to settle down, otherwise I'll get crazy!
First off - try to settle down. You're not going to die or anything.
Pink colored semen usually is a sign of blood in it. No need to panic, as it could be caused by a variety of things. If you have been kicked hard in the testicles recently, it could cause this temporarily. The emphasis is on temporary. If you see this pinkish color for more than a couple of days, then you definitely need to see a doctor. It's good that you already made an appointment to see a doctor about this - its the right thing to do. Blood in the semen could also be caused by a simple infection and is easily treatable. Like I said - try not to worry. Whatever the problem is, chances are it can be fixed.
Thank you very much for helping me! I really didn't know what to do or think.
The thing is that I haven't been kicked...maybe my testicles are sore due to my working out in the gym. Who knows?
Anyway, thanks a lot for replying. I feel better now, even though an appointment with an urologist is the only thing that can make me feel "normal" again. hahahaha Especially because this is the only way to know what is really going on...
THANKS AGAIN! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
I just wanted to let you all know that I masturbated last night and my semen came out just as white and creamy as it has always been. THANK GOD! Those pink shots really scared the **** out of me... I was so worried!
Anyway,I'm still seeing an urologist this week, since I want to make things clear and also ask him some other questions about my equipment. Better safe than sorry, right buddies?? <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">
Thanks for your help once more, Focus! It meant a lot to me. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
That's good to hear its back to normal color again. It's likely that everything is fine. Sometimes a blood vessel will rupture in one of the testicles and cause that. So to see blood in the semen once in a rare while is OK, but it really shouldn't happen often. And it should clear up within a few days. If it happens often or doesn't clear up, then its definitely time to see a doctor.
It's good that you are still going to see the urologist to make sure everything is OK. I would do the same if I were you. Peace of mind is a wonderful thing.
