I have a small amount of yellowish discharge from my penis.

Customer Question

I have a small amount of yellowish discharge from my penis. Its smaller than a drop and not very thick or gel like. I have very mild discomfort when urinating but no burning or stinging. Immediately after urinating I have the sudden urge to urinate again but I expel little to no urine. It also takes me little longer than usual to start urinating. Do I have an STD?

Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 12 months ago.

you could have an STD.

have you had unprotected sex recently?

how old are you?

how long has this been going on?

do you have a doctor or walk in clinic where they can do a urethral swab and urine culture to check for STD?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
41Since yesterday.Yes.You say"could." Any other causes for this problem that are more probable?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 12 months ago.

you could have a bacterial bladder infection

or possibly a prostate infection as well.

since you have had unprotected sex, you should see a doctor and get a penile swab and testing.

have you had an STD before?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
No STDs. You asked if I've recently had unprotected sex. How recent do you mean? Days? Weeks? Months?I plan on getting tested tomorrow. Are bladder and prostate infections more likely w my symptoms? Could it be an UTI? Again, I'm definitely getting tested for STDs but want to be better informed if the test comes back negative.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 12 months ago.

have you had unprotected sex within the last 2-3 weeks?

your symptoms are more likely to be an STD causing infection in your penis.

but the second most likely cause is UTI
