Have you recently had unprotected sex?

Have you had any STDs before?


Are you planning on seeing a physician?

i did about 5 wks ago im not aware of an std before i wasnt planning on seeing anyone
Expert:  TheGermDoctor replied 5 years ago.

I would suggest seeing a physician or going to a GU clinic

This may well be an STD- possibly chlamydia-


But if indeed there is no penile discharge, and the entire itching and drainage is from the shaft of the penis, rather than the urethra, then I would consider either a yeast infection or even herpes.

Having an experienced clinician examine you is the best way to get to the bottom of this, and it is likely easily treated.

I would certainly avoid sexual contact until you have this diagnosed and treated.


Good luck.
