Urethritis. Clear discharge, white goo, penile discomfort. Leukocytes in urine. Gonorrhea and chlamydia negative. What should i do?

I am a 60yo sexually active uncircumcised male. 1 month ago I discovered white particles & threads in my urine but no symptoms. I attended a STD clinic which found leukocytes in my urine but no gonococci & treated me with doxycycline 100mg twice a day for 7 days. 1 week later there was no change. Lab results were negative for gonorrhea & chlamydia. I was told that I was using the wrong shower gel ! 2 weeks after that I started noticing a small amount of clear discharge during the day, and sometimes a glob of white goo on the end of my penis on waking, and often diffuse penile discomfort. I went back to the clinic & was given 1g azythromycin. 1 week later everything exactly the same. I was given a tube of aqueous cream & told not to wash my penis with soap. 5 days later no improvement. I find the suggestion that washing with soap is the cause to be absurd since I have washed with soap for 60 years. I feel that the real cause of this urethritis has not been found. My GP will not talk to me - he says go back to the clinic; they say wait another 10 days. Meanwhile I might well be infectious and essentially untreated. I am desperate. What should do ?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I believe that you have had a diagnosis of urethritis, and have a clear discharge with discomfort in your genitalia. I am glad that you had treatment for infections and are currently not positive for infection. However you do not mention if an entire batter of tests for STDs and UTIs were done. I hope that you do it as soon as you can, by consulting a qualified doctor who can order the appropriate tests after doing an H&P. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
