Brief Answer:
Be calm, observe and report any pain

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

There are moments its important to distinguish between a discharge that is pathologic or a disease , and a normal discharge, especially when the quantity is small. A clear discharge, that is not drawing, that is odorless and not accompanied by any pain on urination is very unlikely to be associated to disease. In case you have not had any risky sexual behavior, having an STI is also very unlikely. Absence of these symptoms should make you to feel good, no worries.
Considering the fact that she tested negative for STI s should be comforting.
I do think you are simply being over worried. My suggestion is that you observe again for a few days for the quantity, aspect, color and any accompanied pain on urination or not. In case anything unusual phenomenon is noticed, or discharge continues, you shall have to XXXXXXX your primary care doctor for a collection of the discharge sample, examination, culture and antibiotic sensitivity tests, to determine the causative organism and possible drug that could be sensitive against this organism.

For now, I suggest being calm, drink so much water and fluids and observant. It might be important to practice purely protected sex for a couple of days. In case of any unusual thing, consult your doctor. Thanks and kind regards. Feel free asking follow up questions in case you have any specific concerns. Kind regards.

However, it might be difficult to be sure if the partner has not had a risky behavior too.

I am 21 years old. I had unprotected sex with a woman who I thought was clean. It has been a year since then, and have gotten tested twice for the basic stds. Nothing. I have had symptoms for the entire year and have felt like there is something wrong for the entire year. My current state is constipation , it is very dry and it is very difficult. I also have absolutely no sex drive, my testicles are almost always in some kind of discomfort or pain, and I have abdominal pain as well. My erections are not as strong and in general it does not feel the same as it used to. I believe I have HSV-1 on my genitals as I received oral sex from the same woman who had a cold sore . No outbreaks of that ever. What can I do?

I have a 'pimply' penis head. the skin on the head itself looks wrinkled too. This is not its usual 'look' and have noticed it since being cleared of gonorrhea . I have been tested and cleared of all stds. I have also used an antifungal cream prescibed by my GP which has reduced the redness of the pimples only - but they are still there. I have no irratation from it.

Hello. I have a concern. I am allergic to an over the counter medication called Flanax. Everytime I take it my eyes and mouth swell up. The swealling in my mouth is so bad that I get blisters after the swealling comes down. My eyes get really dry and itchy. The weird thing is that it gets red right under the clitoris and irritated. I took Aleve a couple days ago without knowing I was going to have the same reaction. Its really irritated under the clitoris again. I been to the doctor and they don t find anything wrong. I been tested for STDs and I don t have any. This only happens to me when I drink that medication. Its has antiinflamatory on the label. I notiiced the pills are always a light blue color. I try to avoid them but I never thought I would have that reaction with Aleve aswell. My doctor gave me yeast infection medication. I just don t get a clear answer everytime I go to the Dr. I am worried it could be something else and not showing up in the boold work. The sensation I get is a tingling around my eyes and mouth and starts getting red after 30 minutes to an hour after drinking the pill. I just want a different opinion please. I only get like this when I drink that and my main concern is in the vagina or under the clitoris
