Sooner or later, men have some questions about their health. Erection problems can occur at any age. Today, specialists are increasingly faced with complaints about the erection status of young people under 25 years of age. It can be seen from this that the problem has been "rejuvenated" significantly. Erectile dysfunction occurs for various reasons: stress, overwork, diseases of the cardiovascular system, unhealthy lifestyle, hormonal imbalance, unhealthy diet. A man can identify some pathologies himself, by the nature of the discharge during an erection. After all, a timely appeal to a doctor for help guarantees full-blown painless treatment.
Normal discharge from excitement
Discharge in men from the penis during arousal, before intercourse, is absolutely normal. The release of secretions when stimulating an erection in medicine is called libidinal urethritis. The quantity and quality of such secretions can be completely different, depending on the characteristics of the body of a particular man.
Normally, when an erection occurs, a clear fluid should come out of the urethra. This liquid has a medium thickness. The amount and duration of such a secret depends on the degree of erection and arousal. That is, the stronger the excitement and desire, the more fluid it is observed before the start of intercourse. It is important to know that even this discharge in men contains a certain amount of sperm. This means that even with the interruption of intercourse, pregnancy can occur.
As is already known, urethrorrhea is a secret that is secreted when exposed to a certain degree of excitement. It is worth noting that the libidinal urethra can discharge in the morning after waking up. This is also considered the norm for men. Smegma is a secret secreted by a gland located on the head of the penis. These secretions are not present in men who carefully monitor personal hygiene. Smegma consists of fat secreted by the sebaceous glands. The secret accumulates under the skin of the glans penis. It is easily rinsed off while showering, and a small amount is considered the norm.
If you do not follow the rules of personal hygiene, the smegma begins to actively stand out during an erection. This is a fertile ground for the multiplication of many pathogenic microorganisms. And such a pathogenic microflora can cause various complications in intimate life. Sperm are secreted from the urethra during ejaculation. After that, as a rule, the erection weakens and disappears completely. Sperm contain a large number of sperm, the secret of the sex glands. The color of this secret is usually white. If there is no sperm secretion during intercourse, this indicates serious potency problems. Normally, ejaculation should occur no later than one hour after the start of sexual intercourse.
Sometimes too much discharge from the urethra during an erection can indicate a deviation. Some diseases are diagnosed precisely by the nature of the pathological discharge. In fact, very often there are no other symptoms in men. That is why it is very important that young people are attentive to all kinds of changes.
So, a discharge that goes beyond the normal range may indicate the presence of such diseases:
- Sexually transmitted diseases;
- Inflammatory processes in the genitourinary system;
- Oncological diseases;
- Complications after trauma to the penis.
The secret that is secreted in men during an erection can be too little, or vice versa, too much. Also, in pathology, the color and consistency of this secret plays an important role. As a general rule, discharge that is too thick or runny is considered unacceptable. In this case, the color may not be white, but yellow, gray, with a greenish tint. There may be impurities of blood or pus. If the secret is transparent, but thick and tight, we can talk about the presence of diseases such as mycoplasmosis, ureaplasmosis, chlamydia.
Passing laboratory tests, in this case, too many leukocytes are established. If the disease is severe and advanced, pus is seen in the discharge. In the presence of a disease such as chlamydia, the discharge collects on the head of the penis and sticks the foreskin.
No less rarely, pathological discharge during an erection occurs against the background of other diseases:
- Staphylococcus aureus;
- Escherichia coli.
At the same time, young people complain not only of pathological discharge during erection, but also of itching, burning and swelling of the tissues of the penis. An abnormal secret does not always indicate the presence of problems of the genitourinary system. Inflammation of the genitalia, both external and internal, can occur against the background of allergies, narrowing of the urethra, chemical poisoning, mechanical action on the mucous membranes of the genital organs. As soon as a man discovers any pathology, it is important to consult a doctor in a timely manner. The specialist will prescribe the most correct course of treatment. This will help avoid possible complications.
