what does discharge look like? when does it occur?
Since my encounter almost 3 weeks ago with a high-risk CSW I have been anxious about STDs. Anyway, perhaps I've been paying closer attention than usual but it seems like every time I go urinate there is always a drop or two that stays at opening of urethra. I have always had some "leakage" but that usually involves some urine spraying out after -- not a drop or two remaining beaded at urethra opening.
Anyway, my questions are: Could this be STD discharge? What would such discharge look like? Also exactly one week post exposure I tested negative for Chalmyida and Gonorrhea -- is this definitive or is it within the "window" period (I assumed it was definitive since the test was performed by a very knowledgable urologist).
This may not be an STD, usually whitish, greenish or yellowish discharge. I dont recccomend this but if you suspect STD, squeeze head of penis to see if any discharge comes out of it. dont squeeze after urinating or if you have to urinate. wait until your bladder is empty wait a hour or so and lightly squeeze head of penis, if discharge comes out, go to your local free std clinic and get checked out. BTW, just becasue you have discharge doesnt mean its automatically std. hope this helps. GL
If you had a discharge from some type of infection, you would not need to squeeze it. Of course if you squeeze, something will come out. A discharge would consist of stains on the underwear and continuous "leaking" feeling.
