Forum Name: Urinary tract infections
Question: Slight discharge/burning
|WorriedMale - Sun May 22, 2005 2:39 pm||
HI, I am a 34 year old male normally good health. Recently I noticed a slight burning after urination in the tip of the penis. The next day I noticed some slight yellow stains in underpants. It seems like a clear discharge, but dries slightly yellow. No rash or bumps or soreness anywhere. No sudden urgency or frequency in urinating. No painful erection or ejaculation either. I did some internet searches on symptoms and everything I have read says it is an STD. I would think an STD would be out of the question because I have been in a monogamous relationship with my wife for 10 years now. (yes we both have been completely faithful, not even an issue) and neither have ever had any type of STD's in the past.
My wife is just getting over being sick and taking antibiotics. If she possibly had a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis, would it be possible my symptoms arouse from intercourse? I know we should both go to the doctor, but our health insurance doesn't start for another month. We are both a little worried and looking for advice. Sorry for this trainwreck of a post, just nervous. I hope I placed this in the right forum and gave enough info.
Edit: allergic to penicillin.

Fungal/ yeast infections may cause symptoms such as you described in both men and women. There are clinics and heath care facilities that assist people with evaluations when they are uninsured/underinsured. Call your local health care facility and inquire if they have any programs in place or a suggestion where you could receive an evaluation (which I would suggest you have).
