Blood in semen
Does anyone know whether a symptom of herpes is blood in semen?
It's possible. You may have sores inside your urethra. Do you have other symptoms? A primary infection usually is accompanied by other symptoms like skin sores, fever, fatigue, flu-like symptoms, etc. The only reliable test is DNA PCR and it is reliable only when you have symptoms indicative of an outbreak. You might get a full panel to rule out other stuff first since the tests for other STIs tend to be more reliable.
