Hey all, my name is Steve and I am so glad I found this site. May of last year I had a PSA test, and it was a 1. One year later it went to 2.3. My dr. sent me to a urologist, and after an exam, he said my prostrate was enlarged. Having no symptoms, he expected an infection, and prescribed 2 weeks of antibiotics. Two weeks after they were gone I had another PSA test. This time the results went up to 2.9. I had a biopsy 12 cores, and currently waiting for the results (9-17). My question is a couple of days after the procedure the blood in my urine went away, also had sex for the first time since. Yes there was blood in my seamen as expected. Now though a week later I am passing large clots, with a lot of blood in my urine. I have seen many posts about seaman lasting a few weeks, but the urine clears up. Has this happened to anyone? I am beginning to get more nervous, as it happens.

Are you taking any blood thinners like aspirin or fish oil? These things can be problematic after a biopsy..A week after a biopsy, in most men, the blood in the urine has cleared up. Some biopsies are more aggressive than others and they cause more bleeding over a longer period of time. But large clots and lots of blood in your urine, that is indeed cause for concern a week after a biopsy. If you can contact your urologist I would do so. Failing that, it's off to the ER if you feel there is a problem..

Welcome to HW. Sorry you need to be here but it's a good place to be.

I had blood clots for about a week and a half. It's not every one's experience but it does happen sometimes. I'd say a call to the Uro's office might be worth the piece of mind at least.

Likely it will just clear up but I'd error on the side of caution and make sure not bad is happening. Sex might have dislodged something or maybe you're still healing.

Keep us updated on your progress.
All the best,
I'll be in the shop.

The official answer to questions like that on this forum is "Call your doctor". So, call your doctor.

That said, there are a couple of things to look at. For one thing, what color is the blood you are seeing? If it is a pretty bright red color then you are still bleeding a bit somewhere. If it is more brown then you had some previous bleeding that is still working its way out. The bright red is more worrisome. Also, the blood in your urine tends to last longer when you pee and poo at the same time. The squeezing presses lingering bits of old blood out of the prostate. And, of course, if you still have blood in your semen then some of that may be washed out the next time you pee after sex.

Bottom line: talk to your doctor (or, more likely to his nurse). They will tell you the same things I just did but they are medical professionals and I am just some weirdo you talked to on the internet.

Good luck with that biopsy result. Keep us posted.

Yes, talk to your doctor. And also know that it can last...well, a while.

That said, I truly hope your biopsy comes back negative. Not to make you more nervous, but waiting until 9/17 for the results seems like long time to me. That said, I'd bet you're going to come back with pretty decent news. Do keep us posted!

It seems like I had blood in my urine and you know what for about a week afterward. Lasted longer in my urine. Glad you are calling your MD. Good move.
