Stringy penile discharge. Not a lot. Is that an std?

May well be: Get tested. See a doctor, and if this is an std get tested for all the others. When you have one, it is not unusual to have more than one.

Std (Definition)

This is a disease which can be transmitted from one person to another person through sexually related activities. This does not limit these activities to heterosexual intercourse, but encompasses all modalities of human-to-human sexual activity. It does not include illnesses that may make an individual more susceptible to a condition because of a sexual ...Read more

Can you get penile discharge from any std?

Can you get penile discharge from any std?

No: Only those that produce infection in the urethra, predominantly gonorrhea, and non-gonococcal urethritis (several organisms) are likely to produce discharge from the penis. There are some cases recorded of symptomatic trichomoniasis in men, but this is rare.

What are some non std causes of penile discharge?

What are some non std causes of penile discharge?

Nothing: Almost all penile discharge is due to an STD, usually gonorrhea, chlamydia, or nongonococcal urethritis. NGU is sometimes mistaken for a non-STD problem because no standard STD shows up on testing. But you only get it from sex. You and your sex partner (s) need treatment. Don't screw around with this; get care promptly.

How often does penile discharge come out when you have an std?

How often does penile discharge come out when you have an std?

Sometimes: Penile discharge is a symptom of some of the more common std's, such as chlamydia and gonorrhea. However, some people can be infected with either of these germs and have no symptoms at all. But they could easily transmit the germ to someone else. Precautions should be taken regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms. Many std's, including hiv, hepatitis b and syphilis, don't cause discharge.

I'm having penile discharge I took an STD and a culture and sensitivity test both came out negative what's the next step?

I'm having penile discharge I took an STD and a culture and sensitivity test both came out negative what's the next step?

Follow-up: This may be chlamydia or trichomonas or both; chlamydia heals slower on macrolide and trichomonas will require a different rx. I also hope that you are not eating any of those little hot peppers, they can give you a urethritis without any infection.

1 sex partner in over a year. 2 days ago, for 1 night and the following morning only I had penile discharge. STD? Why so random if so?

Possible STD: Please visit your primary care provider as soon as possible to discuss your situation and to have a full evaluation/testing and treatment. Without an examination/testing it is impossible to say exactly what is happening.

Anytime: You can have a STD with or without a discharge. Any discharge in any amount is abnormal and suggests an infectious process.

Is the quantity of the discharge caused by any std related Penile discharge and nocturnal emissions /wet dreams the same?

Is the quantity of the discharge caused by any std related Penile discharge and nocturnal emissions /wet dreams the same?

Probable STD: You can't tell the cause by quantity. Any abnormal urethral discharge (e.g., during the day), or discharge that stains underwear, is almost certainly due to STD, i.e. gonorrhea, chlamydia, or nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). If any doubt, see a doctor. Delayed treatment can be very dangerous. Better safe than sorry!

I think I have std which causes penile discharge but urine tests came normal. What's the next step to know what's the problem.? please help

I think I have std which causes penile discharge but urine tests came normal. What's the next step to know what's the problem.? please help

A few ideas: If you eat a lot of hot peppers or very spicy stuff, eliminate them -- this sometimes causes what you describe. I trust you got a culture for gonorrhea and a gram stain. There are false-negatives and your physician will consider whether to treat you in any case.

I have a penile discharge but when I was tested for STDs they came back negative. I am starting to lose hair too. What could be the issue?

NGU: You DO have an STD. Almost every penile discharge is an STD, especially at your age. You probably have nongonococcal urethtirs (NGU). Being tested for STDs probably means gonorrhea and chlamydia tests, but half of all NGU isn't due to these. You still need treatment with antibiotic, and so do your sex partner (s). Hair loss is an entirely separate problem.

Can one have penile discharge caused by any std during sleep? And does it feel the same like ejaculation?

Can one have penile discharge caused by any std during sleep? And does it feel the same like ejaculation?

Unless you know: If you had exposure to an STD you shold be tested and reated if necessary. If you've not been exposed, it is likely to be perfectly normal and what is often called a 'wet dream'. It's pat of a healthy young male body function. Especially if it feels like ejaculation, it probably it one. Best!

I've been having yellowish penile discharge for over 4 months. STD tests are clear. Can it be caused by coffee? (Particularly Arabic blonde). Thanks.

It's an STD!: You probably have nongonoccal urethritis (NGU). It is an STD, even if standard STD tests are negative. Usually such tests include only gonorrhea and chlamydia, but these miss over half of all urethritis. Probably you still need treatment for NGU (doxycycline or azithromycin). It's not coffee or any food. Find a doctor who understands STDs and genital infections and follow his or her advice.

I'm sure that I have some type of STD that causes clear penile discharge but why is the discharge also clear when I have an erotic dream during sleep?

Get tested: If you have a penile discharge and think that you have a sexually transmitted disease please seek treatment and get tested. At night it sounds like you are describing a "wet dream" or nocturnal emissions which is a normal physiologic response in adolescence

Doctors on this site says clear penile discharge indicates STD but I've always had sex wearing a condom. Can I still have any STD?

Doctors on this site says clear penile discharge indicates STD but I've always had sex wearing a condom. Can I still have any STD?

Yes...: Urethral discharge in sexually active young men should lead anyone to think of STD. Condom use help prevent STD but not in 100%. So, see Doc for evaluation and possible Rx timely.

I have penile discharge, feel like I have to pee! STD tests came out neg. Also negative on culture & sensitivity exam. Can it be trich? If not what?

I have penile discharge, feel like I have to pee! STD tests came out neg. Also negative on culture & sensitivity exam. Can it be trich? If not what?

Need more info: You could have trichomoniasis or another non-gonococcal or non-specific urethritis such as ureaplasma. I assume you have been evaluated for gonorrhea and chlamydia. I would recommend returning to the doctor for further testing and abstain from sexual contact until properly diagnosed and treated.
