You may be suffering from an enlarged prostrate or prostatitis. I had the same issue, it was actually semen. My urologist diagnosed me with prostatitis, an inflammation/infection of the prostrate that can be very hard to treat. Do you suffer from night sweats and feel like crap? If not it is probably just an inflamed prostrate. In my case they tried oral Cipro antibiotics that did not work so I had to go to an infusion room daily for Rocephen IV and when that did not work, I had to try IV Invanz that cleared it up. He further explained the reason I was straining was because my prostrate was enlarged. When I pushed hard, I would push out ANY fluid in the bladder and that was the "bottom of the barrel" so to speak and it was mixed with semen that would "back-flow" down my penis into my bladder after sex. Now we know every person is different but you most definitely should go to the doctor immediately and let him know about the traces of blood. I don't care if you don't have pain, burning etc... YOU SHOULD SEE THE DOCTOR ANY TIME YOU HAVE BLOOD IN THE SEMEN OR IN YOUR CASE, TRACES OF BLOOD. I hope this was informative.
