White, painless discharge in penis

For three months now, I've been finding a discharge at the tip of my penis. At first, there'd be stains in my underwear, and as time passed: I'd have to milk it to look for discharge. It was white, thick, and odourless.
I didn't experience any pain in urination whatsoever.
I checked it up with three doctors, and none of them (after urethral swab tests or urinanalysis) found any chlamidya, gonhorrea--but there definitely was an infection, since the white blood cell count was quite high at first (15, later decreased to 3 by last month). The urethral swab test showed that there was a heavy growth of a streptococcous bacteria in there. The doctor told me that it was nothing ot be worried about.

They gave me antibiotics and told me not to worry about it.

The discharge cleared eventually.

Things had subsided until yesterday when I found yellow stains in my underwear and thick white discharge in my penis. It was as bad as it first was, and now, there's a vague itching sensation in my urethra (I don't know whether its my mind playing tricks on me or something worht being worried about).

The thing that gets me is that I haven't had any sexual contact for three full years. So, I know that it can't be a SEXUALLY transmitted disease. WHat else could it be?
In both instances of these incidences: I remember having worn tight underwear for long stretchs of time (the first being a six-hour flight, and the second being when I fell asleep).

What is it? What should I do about it? Should I be worried?

Appreciate any help. Thanks!

They just told me it was in inflamation of my urethra but that I also had some kind of bacterial infection. No not yeast though...

I have this too!

I havent had sex in over a year now and suddenly 3 months back, this started happening. I had a cold and a real bad cough, and the doctor gave me ammoxocilin for it. Then, about a week later, this started. There is no pain, nothing. Just every few days, a small thick discharge. Im worried coz the doctor doesnt know what it is, it cant be an STD and im worried the next girl who sees down there will think i have Gonorrhea when i dont!

Any advice?!

Ive had kinda of the same issue...  Sometimes after urinating i get a small, thick, painless, Whitish- yellowish discharge.  I also get the sensation that im not finished passing the urine.  Also sometimes there is a very slight burn after urinating or right before, it does not last long.  I was wondering if YALL get these big, red, firm, and knotty like bumps on your thighs?  Ive seen a doctor about em' and he said that it was a bacterial infection, either strepp or staph.  I was wondering if those bumps and the discharge after passing urine was related?
