How Long Can Blood Clots And Blood Remain In Urine After Prostate Biopsy? Tomoorrow Will Be A Week, And Clots Started Yesterday.

Answer

Prostate biopsies are associated with bleeding after the biopsy and although most bleeding stops after a week, some patients do experience blood for longer periods of time, and possibly for several weeks. Blood in the semen can commonly last for 4-6 weeks. Aspirin or blood thinners can cause the bleeding to ask longer.
