What does male discharge say in men?

The male genitalia are very vulnerable to pathological processes, so the health of men must be carefully monitored. When an erection is secreted, it is necessary to examine the discharge in men when they are aroused. It is this fluid that can tell about the state of men's health. The secretion can be natural and warn of a pathological process.

When discharge is considered normal

In an aroused state, men should always have the secret of the penis. Discharge is considered normal in some form.

discharge in men, norms and deviations
  1. Libid uretery.This is a clear discharge with no specific odor that occurs during intercourse. Such a secret is necessary as a natural lubricant. The secretion of secrets in these moments is minimal. A man with such a discharge does not feel discomfort. Secretory secretions include a small amount of sperm that have active motility. By penetrating these secretions into the vaginal flora, the partner can become pregnant. Therefore, doctors recommend that men who will not have offspring use condoms at the beginning of sexual intercourse, and not just before the end, which many practice.
  2. Smegma.This is a secret produced by the gonads, which are located near the head of the phallus. Smegma has a yellowish-white color and an unpleasant aroma. With the accumulation of smegma in the area of ​​the head of the genital organ, the pathological process is not diagnosed. This discharge indicates poor hygiene.
  3. Sperm.The discharge of fluid during arousal in men during ejaculation is called semen. Seed is a mucus secretion that has a specific odor. The onset of discharge from the urethral canal occurs at the moment when the maximum ratio is reached. Sperm composition: motile semen with secretions produced by the glands of the genital organs. If this fluid enters a woman's vagina during ovulation (in the middle of the menstrual period), it is possible to conceive a child. At this point, fertilization is most likely, even in those cases where a very small amount of semen is released during sexual intercourse. In some men, small ejaculation is associated with pathological processes, however, this is a misconception. Some men have physiological characteristics in their body.

When strong potency is characterized by a small amount of ejaculation with headache, groin pain, itching, hyperemia, specific odor and other abnormalities, an urgent visit to a urologist is required.

Which discharge is considered pathological

Not all erectile discharges are considered normal in men. Sometimes there may be an admixture of pus or blood.

There are a number of pathological reasons that require medical advice:

discharge in men when they are excited about what it is
  • abundant or lean mass with clusters of clots;
  • painful syndrome in the sacro-lumbar region or chest;
  • disgusting smell;
  • emits urine with discomfort.

A discharge with a good erection in a man is of a specific nature and can warn of the development of any pathology.

  • Inflammatory processes of the urinary and genital area, which can be caused by various harmful microorganisms.
  • Oncological diseases;
  • sexually transmitted diseases;
  • Complication associated with inflammation of the urinary or reproductive system, caused by injury or surgery;

Men are usually horrified at the sight of blood-stained urethral discharge. In most cases, such a discharge indicates the possibility of an oncological process, which could most often affect the male gland, testicles, seminal tubules. However, it is necessary to take into account a number of other symptoms that can accompany these diseases.


  • painful urination;
  • red urine;
  • high temperature;
  • mucus clots have been reported from the urethral canal (usually occurring at a late stage of development).

When a sticky transparent discharge, of viscous origin with an unpleasant odor, comes out of the urethral canal, it warns of an outbreak of infectious pathology. Infection of a man can occur through sexual intercourse.

Additional signs include itching, redness of the epidermis of the head, with signs of a rash on the organ.

Infectious diseases that can affect the urinary and genital area of ​​the male body:

  • gonorrhea;
  • ureaplasma;
  • herpes;
  • mycoplasmas;
  • chlamydia.

When an infectious process develops from the male urethral canal, a secretion with a huge number of leukocytes is secreted from the genital organ, which makes the fluid viscous. This indicates the presence of pus in the seed. This phenomenon warns of serious complications in the pathological process.

In the absence of pus there is no reason to postpone a visit to a specialized specialist (urologist). Improper treatment can cause phimosis. Phimosis is a characteristic adhesion of the foreskin to the head of the penis. This pathology is treated only by surgery.

Among the reasons that could cause pathological discharge from the urethra, other infectious diseases can be included, the development of which should be eliminated immediately, therefore it is necessary to seek medical help immediately.

Includes infection with staphylococcus, streptococcus, urethral canal and testicular fungus. This pathology is expressed by itching of the perineum, swelling of the scrotum, head of the phallus with hyperemia.

Certain diseases can cause these pathological processes with certain secretions:

  • balanoposthitis;
  • hemorrhage;
  • non-gonorrheal urethritis;
  • spermatorrhea.

These diseases may be characterized by bleeding from the urethral canal with additional pain in the groin and scrotum. Pain syndrome has also been reported in the testicles, while the man feels weakened, body temperature rises, and urination is difficult.

What to do if a man has a pathological discharge

When a man in an upset state rejects the urethral canal, seek medical advice. A specialist will find the cause and help eliminate it. To do that, the urologist will offer to undergo an examination and pass the necessary tests.


  • swab from urethral canal for bacterial culture;
  • spermogram;
  • visit to a proctologist;
  • examination of total urine and blood;
  • ultrasound examination of the pelvic organs.

After a thorough examination and receiving the test results, the specialist can determine the cause of the specific discharge in men. After that, therapeutic therapy is prescribed, which allows you to reduce unpleasant symptoms, preventing pathological complications.

When patients do not seek immediate medical attention for a course of therapy, it threatens the progression of the disease with serious consequences that affect not only the quality of sexual life, but also the general health of men.

Certain pathological processes can affect the entire urogenital area. Bleeding can occur during ejaculation, which is fatal.

To prevent pathological manifestations expressed by abnormal discharge from the urethra, men should take their health seriously. In order to prevent diseases of the urinary and genital tract in the initial phase, you should undergo an annual examination by a specialized specialist.
