Brief Answer:
amount of discharge alone shouldnt be used for STD diagnosis

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

The amount doesn't matter in terms of discharge. If there is purulent discharge, one can clinically suspect an infection for which the discharge is sampled , examined and sent for culture sensitivity. If STD is suspected then an STD panel can be advised accordingly, in consult with your doctor. Unless the investigations are done , conclusions cant be drawn alone on the nature or amount of the discharge.


Wishing you best of health

Thanks

Purulent means that the discharge contains pus. It doesn't refer to the frequency of the discharge.

Detailed Answer:
If its not XXXXXXX pus still the clear discharge can contain purulent fluid though the possibility is less. Microscopic examination is superior to naked eye assessment of any fluid sample.

Brief Answer:
Explained

Detailed Answer:
Hello again.

If you did not have unprotected sex, then an STD is highly unlikely. In such a presentation, a urinary tract infection is common. Many a times, dried sperm can also be an irritant and subsides with the passage of time. Try to relax, take plenty of fluids and exercise regularly. If you are still worried then a urinalysis and an STD panel can be done, in consult with your doctor to be more sure about the diagnosis.
