Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I will certainly guide you regarding your husband's problem. In order to understand the problem better, can you please provide the following clarifications:

How hong has he been having this problem?

When does this leaking of fluid happen (when he is sexually aroused or only at nights when he is sleeping or when he is awake)?

Does he have any burning or painful urination or passing cloudy or turbid urine?

Does he have any urinary symptoms such as incontinence (inability to hold his urine), straining to pass urine, dribbling of urine or incomplete evacuation?

How significant is his erection difficulty?

Does he have any other medical problems or is he on any treatment recently?

Does he smoke or consume alcohol often?

Kindly get back to me with these clarification so that I will be able to guide to better.

Hello again and thaks for the clarifications.

The most probable cause of this whitish discharge from the penis is a prostatitis (infection of the prostate gland) or urethritis (infection of the urethra). He will need to have a urine / semen culture test done to confirm this. Further treatment will be with appropriate antibiotics for a minimum of 5 to 7 days.

Regarding his erection problem, the first step would be a proper medical evaluation to rule out any underlying medical problems which could be causing this problem. For example, certain medical conditions like diabetes, vascular diseases, hormonal disorders, etc. can result in poor erection. So, he may need to have certain tests to check for such problems and if there are any, then those problems have to be first treated. There are certain medication which improve the blood flow to the penis and promote better erection, such as Sildenafil, Vardenafil and Tadalafil. These medication can also be tried after consulting a doctor.
