Brief Answer: May be ignored------------------------------ Detailed Answer: welcome to the forum. Discharge from the urethra is usually due to urethritis - inflammation of the urethra, commonly due to sexually transmitted disease. STD can be either gonococcal or non-gonococcal urethritis. Gonococcal urethritis is usually easily diagnosed and treated as it presents with curdy white discharge from the urethra, few days after unprotected sex and diagnosed by a swab test of the discharge. So it is non-gonococcal urethritis which is missed and it is treated by a course of tetracycline/doxycycline for a week. If that too has been done, then the occasional discharge can be ignored as may be considered excessive lubrication by the urethra glands, especially if you practice safe sex. Hoe this helps.
