Men Home > A Quick Guide to Discolored Semen

When to Get Help

You'll want to get to your doctor quickly if you have symptoms of an infection, such as blood in the urine, a fever, chills, or pain or tenderness. If you know you have a high risk for prostate cancer, you'll want to report any semen color changes that last more than a few days to your doctor.
 
Otherwise, you can probably safely wait and see if it goes away on its own and marvel at the amazing (and sometimes bizarre) human body.
