Urethritis: Azithro treats chlamydia and other causes of urethritis, but not gonorrhea or trichomonas. The discharge with gonorrhea usually isn't watery. I'm sure you can tell the difference between urine and urethral discharge, and urine shouldn't be spontaneous. It shouldn't be semen if you're not aroused. If you continue to have discharge and dysuria, you should get retested.
