Penile Discharge after a tough Bowel Movement?

Sorry to post this twice, I posted this under Bowel Movement as well.
I felt it applied to both, just a bit scare and looking for some quick reassurance.

Hello all,

I'm a 31 yr. old asian male, fit and healthy I think.

This morning I noticed a penile discharge after a bowel movement.
It was like a clear/cloudy, gel consistency and sticky. The amount was like equal to the size of a pea. It was a hard movement, I am no stranger to constipation. My stool is large and clusterred at times. I find myself pushing 50-60% of the time.
Only a small hard stool came out and than I noticed the discharge. 2-3 hours later, I had the urge to go again and finished the job with a serious push with no discharge. It was quite a lot (sorry to be soo gross), The beginning of the stool was hard but got softer towars the endm bananna like, no pain or burning either. I should mention, I have a history of masturbating on a regular basis and have not for a week. Before the 1st BM, I looked at some sexy photos, could this have contributed?

I went to my doctor and having tests done, but he said if it was STD's the discharge would be throughout the day and when you squeeze your penis, pus would come out. I have no pain while urinating.

He said, if it persists he'll send me to specialist.

I have been stressed lately, I have taken multiple STDs HIV's test due to some questionable acts in the last month and two and the results have been negative. (still waiting for the rsults on gonorahea and chlymidia). I know they were low-risk but all this internet stuff really scares me. could I be making my own symptoms?

Is Penile discharge normal like this or is this a real concern. I am eating more fiber, fruits/veg and water these days.

Thank you for any advice.

Re: Penile Discharge after a tough Bowel Movement?

Hello, Im no expert but this has periodically happened to me for years and it has never concerned me because it looks remarkabaly like semen. As the prostate can be stimulated through the anus and the prostate produces seminal fluid I have always assumed that the hard stool is compressing the prostate causing a release of seminal fluid. I would be interested in hearing other replies.

I've had this also. It seems that it's very possible that fecal material could easily press against the prostate through the rectal wall and cause the same discharge as prostate stimulation with a finger. I've had the discharge also during a digital rectal exam of my prostate.

After undergoing a trans-rectal prostate biopsy (PSA levels > 4) I'm more aware of the proximity of the prostate to the rectum. My prostate measured at a robust 69.9 cc (normal is 20-30) so it's no wonder this happens to me.

I also would guess that the longer it's been since your last ejaculation the more likely it would happen since there would be more prostate fluid in the gland.

The discharge would be semen without the sperm.
I'm not a doctor, just a guy who used to have a cancerous prostate....but I got over it...

Don't worry fella, You are normal and there is no reason to be concerned. In looking at the anatomy of the male reproductive system, the seminal vesicle(two sack that produce seminal fluid at the top of the prostate gland) is located right against the wall of the Anal cavity. Though the pressure against the prostate could have caused this fluid to flow out of the penis by means of the urethra, it is more likely that the pressure against the seminal vesicle caused this liquid, semen, to be forced out of the penis.

Whether it was pressure against the prostate or the seminal vesicle, the point is that both reside against the anal cavity and immense pressure and strain will cause you to pass seminal fluid. The fact that you masturbate alot is not really an issue. Now the fact that you saw erotic material before could have helped as they say "Prime the Pump" in so many words, and therefore added pressure would have been a catalyst for the discharge.

It has happened to me a number of times as I am not a stranger to gastrointestinal irregularity due to IBS. The first time it happened to me I was about 25(10 years ago) and it scared the heck out of me. My doctor sat me down and showed me the male anatomy and why it happened, which made me feel alot better. I'm sure your doctor was just being cautious in performing the STD test.

To any event, you are a normal healthy male and should not worry about the discharge, as long as it is a normal color (i.e. the color of seminal fluid, clear to cloudy/white-the color of your normal discharges when masturbating). Now if it is a dark color then you need to get checked as it could be the onset of something serious with the prostate, seminal vesicle, urethra and/or bladder such as an infection or worse.

Hope this helps.
