    White Discharge, Frequent Urge to Urinate, Mild Back Pains. Not Chlamydia or Gonorrhea.
    An_226285 posted:
    I'm a 21 year old male.

    About 3 weeks ago I began to notice a whitish-clearish discharge at the end of my penis. I only saw it once a day for about 3 days straight. First and second day it was a very visible whitish discharge I would see sitting at the tip after pulling down my pants in the bathroom. Third day it was less and more clearish. Never saw it again afterward. Regardless, I scheduled a doctors appointment.

    A couple days before I saw my doctor, I began feeling some moderate pain in my back, not particularly in any area. Felt it mostly in mid and upper area, sometimes low. It wasn't drastically painful, I can still move and function normal. Just a little discomforting. Doctor sent away a urine sample for Chlamyida or Gonorrhea and prescribed me a dose of Zithromax in case.

    I was still experiencing the back pains on and off for a few days, but they eventually went away.

    Called back the doctor only to find out I tested negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. Not long afterward I started feeling this strange urge to urinate more often.

    Actually, since the first day I saw the discharge I sort of felt like I was going to pee more than usual, but it for the most part it still felt fairly normal.

    But at this time I began going to the bathroom and than maybe as soon as 5 to 10 minutes later, I'll slowly feel this subtle urge to go again that would slowly increase more over time. If I went again within a few minutes, I would pee a very small amount. If I chose to hold off the urge and let it build up for a few hours I'd let out a fair amount. In either case, everytime I went, a few drops of urine would slowly dribble out when I'm finished.

    Saw my doctor again this morning who took another urine sample and said this time she found some non-visible, microscopic traces of blood and some pus. Last time I visited, they only found pus. This surprised me since my urine has always appeared normal, not pink, or red, or brown or anything. The samples been sent away for a culture, and she's also given me a referral to see a Urologist and receive an ultrasound for my kidney and bladder.

    At this moment, the urge to urinate isn't as bad as it was a week ago. I can at least go a good hour or more without feeling that subtle urge come on again, but it's still a bit too soon. Also just a few hours ago I began feeling some mild discomfort in my back again, but I think it's going away already.

    If I can give any other details, it's that a few times day I feel this sort of quick second "pinch" on the tip of my penis. It's not irritable or constant,. It's just a quick, sort of mild, painless pinch that goes for a quick second. It only happens a few times a day. Not too often at all.

    I haven't notice any other unusual symptoms.
    It doesn't burn or hurt when I pee.
    Its not difficult to pee when I actually go.
    I have seen no sores, swelling, lumps, rashes, or any skin related conditions.
    I don't feel sick, nauseous, tired, dizzy, feverish, or alarmingly uncomfortable.

    Really, I haven't felt any strong symptoms that disrupt my daily routines.

    Whiteish-clearish Discharge on the tip of penis - only saw for a few days before it cleared up on its own, occasional mild pains in my back, recent frequent urges to urinate, mild painless "sting"/"pinch" at the tip of penis that I notice a few times a day. Doctors found microscopic, non-visible traces of blood in recent urine sample.

    Not Chlamydia or Gonorrhea.

    I'm a 21 year old male.

    The fact that it's not either of these STIs - since I don't know any other cause of white discharge - and now the blood (even if I can't see it) has kinda disturbed me.

    Any ideas what it could be? Should I be alarmed?

    I need all the feedback I can get! Thank you.

    Sounds like you may possibly have some kidney stones, which may not have become sizable (still the size of grains of sand), but are still causing irritation.

    The most important thing here is to follow through on the referral to a urologist. Your general practitioner is not capable of properly assessing the situation.
