Hi I have had a very small amount of discharge in the end of my Urethra some mornings if I squeeze all the way along my penis. I noticed this when I started checking due to me slowly finding it more difficult to urinate (seems to spray more than it used to but I've had a bit of a problem with this for years).I thought that it was an sti, and have been treated for chlamidia and am currently on a weeks course of ofloxacin to treat for nsu. I'm only a day away from the end of this treatment and I noticed it's still there this morning.Could this be something else?
