Prostatitis? UTI?

Ten days ago I did some heavy mountain biking, something I don't do often so I wake up with sore legs and back, etc. Four days later (6 days ago) I had protected sex with a girl but and gave me unprotected oral for about 30 seconds up to a minute.

Over the last two days I've been noticing some clear discharge from my penis and some tingling sensation at the top.
The dischage is always clear, never whitish, it looks like precum only that it happens during the day with no erection/arousal. I've been having a little of back pain, probably from the mountain biking.
The tip of my penis feels "funny" at random moments during the day. Urinating doesn't burn at all. Sometimes after I urinate the tip feels funny like I described but most of the time I could say urinating is actually pleasant.
I don't have increased urgency to urinate.

I took a standard urine test on the way home and my leukocytes where slightly elevated, now I'm looking for a lab where I live (Costa Rica) that would check for specific bacteria in the urine. I suffer from gut issues so I'm trying to avoid going to a doctor that will simply give me broad spectrum antibiotics to kill whatever's there.

So in the meantime I would like to hear your opinion. I've heard getting Chlamydia from oral sex is rare and my symptoms don't look like Gono. Could it be some kind of mild Prostatitis due to the mountain biking?
It's infortunate that both things happened around the same time (sex with that girl and the mountain biking trip)

Welcome to the forum.  Thanks for your question.

Your own analysis sounds pretty much on track.  I doubt you have any STD, and certainly your risks for STD have been low, given oral sex as the only unprotected exposure recently.  Your problem is quite similar to the one in the question immediately before yours, with the exception of your biking history.  Certainly that can cause minor trauma to the prostate gland, as well as to the pelvic musculature.  Take a look at the other thread, as well as the ones whose links I provide in that response:

Given the likely contribution of pelvic trauma from biking, I suggest you sit tight for a week or so; your symptoms probably will clear up.  If not, it would be reasonable to be examined professionally.  That should include testing for common STDs, but I'm confident nothing will show up.

I hope these comments are helpful.  Best wishes--  HHH, MD

Thanks Dr.HHH for your prompt answer and for the link to the other post.

It’s strikingly similar to my experience indeed. I kept saying “yes, exactly!” as I read it.

Thanks again for your priceless advice.

For the sake of completeness and to help future readers, I wanted to share the outcome of my situation. I waited a week (that'll be today). My symptoms are gone (even though I still check on my penis with a little anxiety). I refrained from physical activity this week other than walking.

I read a little about CPPS and in one of the web pages, heavy squatting was mentioned. I didn't mention this in my original post because I didn't think it could be related but I returned to the gym about a month ago (after about a year of absence) and coincidentally squatting has been the exercise where my strength has increased the most (2X), maybe I overdid it a little. My quadriceps are doing great but maybe it was too much for the rest of my body (pelvis, etc).  Anyway, I just wanted to share it, whether this was related or not.
