    After a prostate biopsy, most patients will have transient blood in the urine and in their stool, however these effects are both short lived.  Blood in the semen (hematospermia) can last for up to several weeks.  The most significant potential side effects are infection related to the biopsy, however, antibiotics that the patients are given prior to the biopsy limit this potential serious side effect.
