Semen after biopsy

Posted 28 Jul 2021 at 10:55

3 months after biopsy my semen still is discoloured, any views

How much discoloured?

I think we would all agree white was the normal colour, and we would agree that like heinz tomato sauce, or like HP brown sauce were extreme colours but both possible immediately after biopsy.

Whether it is red or brown gives you some clue as to how fresh the blood is.

If we are talking, like Marie Rose (prawn cocktail) sauce. That would certainly be possible a few weeks after biopsy.

By three months I wouldn't expect much colour, if a tiny hint of brown, then perhaps some old blood from the biopsy still coming out, if a slight hint of pink then perhaps a tiny bit of fresh bleeding.

I think it is worth mentioning to your doctor as I think for most people it would have cleared up after six weeks, but I wouldn't be very worried unless it is more of a red than pink.

Hope I haven't put any one off their favourite condiment.

Never gonna eat prawn cocktail again :-(

Also depends how regularly you are ejaculating to be honest. I was still very active at 47 when I was having the biopsies ( 3 in total ). It does take a good few months to get back to normal even with regular ejaculation
