Discharge From Penis

Getting a discharge from penis other than semen and urine can be concerning. Depending on what the cause is, the discharge from penis can be clear, white, watery, or thick. 

While discharge from your penis is a common symptom of various STDs like Chlamydia and gonorrhea, there can be other causes too. They might not be serious but will typically require treatment.

Symptoms like itching, redness, colored urine, rash, and swelling can sometimes accompany discharge from penis. Penis discharge UTI can cause discomfort, problems with sexual relations, and pain.

Balanitis is a condition that can cause clear discharge in men. It occurs when the foreskin of uncircumcised males get inflamed due to irritation, infection, or poor hygiene. If you experience severe pain in the testicles, high fever, or swollen groin, it can be an indication of a serious condition.

Sexually transmitted diseases are a major cause of fluid and pus discharge from penis. Some STDs cause urethritis, which is an inflammation of the urethra that causes the production of discharge or pus. The most common STDs associated with colored or clear sticky discharge in males are Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and Trichomonas infections. 

If you had an unprotected sexual encounter with a person infected with STDs, you should go for an STD test to rule out all possibilities of STD being the cause of discharge from penis. It is quick and easy, and you wouldn’t have to worry about confidentiality if you go to one of our partner clinics. 

If you get a positive result for Chlamydia or gonorrhea, you can treat the discharge with antibiotics prescribed by your doctor.

Remember that STDs aren’t the only cause of clear discharge in men. You can get penis discharge, too, if there are problems with your urinary tract. 

Some sexually transmitted diseases do not show symptoms immediately. Therefore, you might think you don’t have one if you are experiencing only a discharge. But you cannot be certain unless you go for an STD test, so don’t skip this important step. Ignoring STDs can put you at great risk of acquiring other severe health conditions.

So what is penile discharge? It can be a symptom of a UTI or a more serious underlying health condition like an STD. No matter the cause, your best bet is to consult a doctor or go for an STD test. While you’re treating the condition, try to avoid sexual activities as it could put your partner at risk of contracting the infection.
