Post Prostate Biopsy Symptoms (Blood in semen)

A year ago, I had my first biopsy. After a few days, I got horny and pleasured myself. Just like everyone else, I got a shockingly disturbing visual of blood. MY DOCTOR NEVER MENTIONED this apparent side effect. I can only imagine the HORROR had I been intimate with my wife instead, (insert your preferred scenario).
I regained my composure after nearly passing out and got online to figure out what's up. I was happy to see that it was common and no need to worry. It cleared up a few weeks (or a few performances) later.

So now I just had another biopsy and MY QUESTION is: Is the clearing up process a "TIME" factor (3-4 weeks) or a "FLUSHING" factor (3-4 ejaculations) or both? I want to know if I go a month without sex, then will I have a clean (or almost clean) ejaculate? Will my body absorb, filter and clean my seman? Or will I still have to flush it out either way?

Seriously, this needs to be studied, graphed, published and mandatory for doctors to thoroughly explain the bloody expectations.

Yes it's a common side effect. It goes away. Mine only lasted a week and I had 17 samples. No need to abstain.
