    I had unprotected oral sex awhile ago and now I think I may have genital warts (I have about 5 or 6 strange coloured circle things, and tiny lumps on my penis about the size of a full stop) I used to have a smelly discharge from my penis, and I have an odd colour patch on my penis, does anyone know what might be wrong?

    I think that you should immediately go to seek your Gp or attend the sexual centre, because you might have contracted one of the Stds. Please don`t delay and the quicker you see a Gp the better you will be and reduce any sexual health issue.

    It sounds like your body is just doing what it's supposed to do. The vagina produces lubrication during sex, and that's what you're seeing. A white or creamy color is totally normal. There's nothing to be embarrassed about - it's usually a big turn on for a guy to see that during sex, so I don't think you should stress about it at all!

    These are typically small bumps filled with sebum sebum (oil, like from your hair follicles). They are very common in pubescent males. If you have any pain, redness, or you think you could have been exposed to an STI, see a doctor.

    Hello everyone, A while back I caught something while I was in a relationship, I had an outbreak of red lumps as well as white stuff. However when I washed the white stuff away it reappeared, not so much as a discharge but on closer I inspection it seemed to be that my skin was peeling on the head as well as itching. I went to the Brook and they got me an appointment and when I spoke to him he had told me it sounds like a yeast infection and to get some anti-biotics. However at the time the shops where shut and the day after it seemed my penis head had returned to normal. But I realised after close inspection after around 2 years since I seen the doctor that when I get an erection there is very fine red dots under the head of the penis. I have no symptoms such as itchiness or discharge but I'm curious to whether the yeast infection is still there but in a "calmed down" state. Anyone have some advise?

    Since before I lost my virginity, I have occasional moments when I feel a soreness in the end of my penis. This happens long after ejaculation, there is a sticky transparent discharge and what look like fibrous white strands emerging ocassionally. I have no idea what this is and I know that if I go to the doctors that they will test me for STI's when I know that I have none as I have been tested before. At the local GUM clinic it was said that I had a swelling in the urethra and so they gave ani-biotics as a precaution against STIs however they found no evidence of STIs. Could the white fibrous material within the transparent discharge be unliquified sperm? Something like delayed seminal liquefaction perhaps? My worst fear is that I may have something wrong with my prostate. Either way this problem is very irritating as I don't know when it might occur, the soreness only seems to stop once all the discharge has gone.

    Hi, I'm 20 years old and have been in a relationship for 4 years, for around 2 1/2 - 3 years I have had issues with down below.. I've never been unfaiful or done anything wrong and neither has my partner but my penis does produce discharge sometimes but everyday it is quite painful on the head. So sometimes can cause issues with intercourse and sometimes it can smell. I was just wondering whether all this time it could be something serious or nothing? I can't see how either of us could have a problem? But I get very uncomfortable with my penis

    I am 28, and have had penile discharge, and struggle to keep my penis dry from the age of 15. I have visited the doctor when I was younger who did lots of tests, but couldn't give me a solution and said it must be psychological. I clean my penis each day, but everytime i go to the toilet, the discharge happens and the penis is wet again. Is there anything I can do?

    I have small red spots on the end of my penis, they are more distinct when my penis is erect. My penis comes really red(but not sore) after sexual intercourse. My girlfriend says its just friction causing it, but im not sure. There is no burning sensation and its not ichy. I also have a clear discharge from the penis usually once i have had an erection and havn't ejaculated. Could this be thrush or something worse?

    Hi. I've been experiencing thick white discharge everyday since about two years ago. I am sixteen and a half and I am in a steady relationship and are sexually active. I am on the contraceptive pill also. The discharge smells on a day to day basis and I shower twice a day to try and stop this. Also, during sex my boyfriend has noticed blobs of white discharge on his penis and this is effecting my confidence as even though my boyfriend does not think anything of it, I get very embarrased. Please help me, I have used thrush treatments in the past but none of them seem to work and I am getting desperate. Thanks.

    hi, i'm 16 and about 2 weeks right before my period i noticed that the discharge was slightly green and watery and had a bad smell to it.i was worried but didn't do much about it.i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend and he complained after of a stinging pain in his penis.i immediately thought it had something to do with the discharge.i was too embarrassed to say anything though.the pain went away for him after 2 days.i got my period and everything was normal.now a few days after it i had unprotected sex again and he complained of pain again. the next day his penis was red and his balls were red and it looked like a rash.i haven't had sex with anyone else so it's not an std.and my discharge is normal now with a normal smell and everything. i'm just worried.his rash isn't itchy btw.should i go see a gyno?

    Go to the sex clinic or your doctor. It's sounds like an std. Maybe it came from your boyfriend.

    After having sex for the first time in a while whilst on holiday (multiple times/partners) my penis became sore ( I assumed over use/friction) I carried on having sex even tho it was very painful afterwards due to the soreness. At the end of the trip I couldn't even touch it. On my return I seemed to shed a layer of skin on the tip of my penis. Now (2 mnths later) my penis is still quite itchy and sore (especially after I have masterbated). I am pretty sure that I had protected sex on all occasions. To be honest, it feels like thrush but there is no build up of smegma and canisten doesn't seem to help. I have no discharge and nothing that especially resembles herpes and my penis is always kept clean. I have has some experience of std's over the years but nothing like this. Can you help explain my itchy red penis tip that won't go away?

    Go and see a GP about the itching. It isn't unlikely that you have thrush which is common when you have tight foreskin. If that is what it is you be prescribed Canesten and this works really well. For the tight foreskin you can try to stretch it better by using a stretcher kit like the one at the phimosis website. If you develop irritation and inflammation then your GP may prescribe hyrdocortisone to reduce the inflammation. Hope this helps!

    i have an itchy penis the foreskin is dry and when it itches theres a milky white substance or discharge from my penis when i rub it to get the itching to stop,there is no pain when uranating the itchyness comes and goes sometime realy itchy?
