  Is it normal to experience a clear discharge from the penis when you have a BM.
  Also is  it normal to have this same discharge following showers. I have never asked any of my freinds if they expience this. Should I see A doctor? ---Billy
Dear Billy
Your discharge following bowel movements is probably explained by pressure the stool or just straining places on the prostate.  The prostate as you may know is a gland and does secrete fluid into the ejaculate. If this is the case you may notice this discharge after a bowel movement with hard stool. Rarely you may have a cyst of the prostate which is predisposed to compression during a bowel movement.   I am not sure what would be the reason for a discharge after a shower.  Penile discharges can be also from inflammation of the urethra (the urine tube leading to the outside) called urethritis.  Urethritis is commonly caused by a sexually transmitted disease and may be associated with other symptoms  such as burning.  This can be diagnosed by your doctor.  He or she should also perform a digital prostate exam to make sure that is normal.  Remember, after age fifty, it is recommended you get a yearly PSA ( prostate specific antigen) blood test for prostate cancer screening unless you are in a high risk group (sibling or father with prostate cancer, member of the Black race) in which case you should obtain BOTH a digital rectal exam and a PSA beginning at age 40..
