Generally presence of just yellowish green discXXXXXXXXoration indicates infection of the prostrate.

But since it is not frequent, it may be just the increased prostratic secretions in the semen that is causing the discXXXXXXXXoration.

User :   ok
Doctor :   Since you do not have any other condition associated with your present condition, an infection is unlikely.
User :   It has me scared. Should I try an over the counter infection test like PH strips?

I would suggest you to get a complete blood count and an urine examination done.

These test will for sure tell you if you have an infection.

Oral sex will not cause any infection of the genital tract.
