User :   I had sex with a girl about a week ago after not having sex for 8+ months and being tested completely clean, She was tested a month ago and tested clean and has not had sex until me. Yesterday I noticed a slight white discharge from my penis, it does not burn when i urinate and there are no bumps or anything that seems out of the ordinary (other than the discharge) on my penis. I did find out that she was sick for a little while, i'm not sure if it was strep throat or not, but she did have a cough. After doing alot of research, it looks like i have the sympXXXXXXXXs of a yeast infection, I've been deployed, so i'm sure i'm more vulnerable to infections, and i've been eating alot of high suger foods and sweets. What could this discharge mean other than a yeast infection and is this more than likely a yeast infection? thanks in advance.
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
let me read
Doctor :   what is the nature of the discharge ?

User :   milky white, almost like precum
Doctor :  
when does it come ? before urination after urination ?
User :   before urination
Doctor :  
is there any burning sensation ?
User :   its not a heavy discharge at all, only when i "make" it come out (squeezing it), no burning sensation
Doctor :  
is there any redness of the penis head ?
User :   nothing than there normally is already, nothing has changed, i am circumcised too
User :   *that isnt normally there already
Doctor :   urethral discharge with out any sympXXXXXXXXs is very much unusual
Doctor :  
yes as you said it may be yeast infection also
Doctor :  
but it is not common to have only discharge with out any other sympXXXXXXXXs
Doctor :   it may be the goblet gland secretions also in the urethra which is normal
Doctor :   i suggest you to get the microscopic examination of the urethral discharge
User :   i have been deployed for the past 8 months also, so im sure i am more easily infected than most would be from the environment i have been in, i am on leave right now, so i have had alot of soft drinks and not eating like i normally would, i was just worried because i had unprotected sex and then started getting a discharge
User :   can/will a yeast infection cause a discharge like this? i bought monistat from cvs and it seems to have made the discharge lessen. what worries me is that she may have had strep throat and performed oral sex
Doctor :   yes yeast infection can cause white discharge.
Doctor :   if strep throat is causing the discharge than you will have severe burning sensation and other sympXXXXXXXXs like fever with chills and rigors because strep throat causes bacterial infection of urethera
User :   i dont have nessasarily a burning sensation, it feels like it is in the process of becoming raw when i urinate if that makes sense, do i just need to keep applying the monistat?
Doctor :   If the discharge is tested as to what is it would give better picture what to do next
Doctor :   after testing if it coes as yeast infection a single dose of fluconozazole would be sufficient
Doctor :  
if it is as i said normal goblet cell secretion than no treatment is required
Doctor :   if there is bacterial infection is there a low grade type than a course of antibiotic is required
User :   what is a goblet cell secretion and how/why does it happen
Doctor :   the testing of the discharge will make it clear what to do next
Doctor :   goblet cells are normal cells which secret a mucoid discharge to keep the urethral tract.
Doctor :   moist and act as lubricant also
User :   so is this something i should lose sleep over?
Doctor :   if the discharge is confirmed that it is not a yeast infection than you need not worry
User :   if she has strep throat and performs oral sex on me, what will i expect to see or what will/can happen
Doctor :  
it would have been bacterial urethritis and the sympXXXXXXXXs will be severe burning sensation, discharge per urethra fever with chills and rigors
User :   alright, i am going to go to my doc XXXXXXXX and get a test done and see what he wants me to do
Doctor :  
User :   it just seems like a yeast infection to me because it has lessened since i have been applying that yeast infection cream
Doctor :   yes it may be yeast infection also
User :   based upon all of the info i have provided what do you think is likely going on?
Doctor :   instead of assuming things it is better to confirm what it is, so we do have definitive plan what to do next
Doctor :   from the infection provided it is either normal mucous secretion or the yeast infection
Doctor :   * information
User :   that is true, i appreciate your help and information, i do feel better about this now
Doctor :  
is there anything else i can help you with ?
Doctor :  
are you there ?
Doctor :  
thanks for consulting health care magic
Doctor :  
bye for now
