In men, an erection often occurs in the form of fluid (in limited quantities), which can vary in color and consistency. The secretions come from the urethra or duodenum and are normal unless the volume, color, and smell make you think otherwise.
If the discharge is atypical in appearance, reconsider your health condition and consult a specialist as this may be the first symptom of a serious illness.
Erection during erection in men, indicating normal health
A common indicator of urogenital health is physiological urethral discharge:
- urethrorrhea- an erection produces a transparent secret that contains few germ cells;
- smegma- produced by the sebaceous glands under the skin of the genital vagina (washed away during hygienic procedures).
The appearance of secretion, which cannot be attributed to normal and physiology, indicates the presence of inflammatory processes in the body. They can be caused by both infectious and non-infectious causes.
The main types of infectious diseases that cause abnormal secretions are:
- genital herpes;
Non-infectious factors can also trigger such secretion, namely:
- urethral damage due to mechanical stress;
- allergic reactions;
- taking medications or other chemicals;
- Narrowing of the urethral lumen.
Typology of discharge during male erection
All erectile secretions in men can be different colors and transparent. Based on these indicators, we can draw the first conclusions about the presence of processes that are unusual for a healthy body, namely:
- turbid - directly indicates the presence of an impressive amount of pathogenic microorganisms in the body;
- thick consistency gray - indicates the presence of dead epithelium;
- green or yellow - a direct indicator of the presence of inflammatory processes and purulent secretions (increased levels of leukocytes in the analyzes);
- is dotted with blood or blood clots.
Examination and treatment of atypical secretions during erection
If atypical secretion is detected during an erection, a specialist should be contacted and a comprehensive examination should be performed to confirm or rule out the presence of certain diseases.
The first check includes:
- visual inspection of the penis;
- palpation and examination of lumbar lymph nodes;
- Collection of prostate secretion for later laboratory examination.
Preliminary diagnosis can be made based on laboratory tests and data from the first test. If this information is insufficient, the following manipulations will be performed:
- TANK sowing;
- complete blood count;
- general urine analysis;
- Ultrasound of pelvic organs and prostate;
Based on the results of the test, the specialist will prescribe the appropriate treatment.
