Staphylococcus Infection In Semen
I am noticing dry semen stains in my partners underwear, it's only happening approx once a week. Is this normal or could it be a sign of infection?

However, STD discharge is unlikely to occur once a week, and STD chance depends on your and his sexual risks (other partners?).
