The secret appearance released from the human body tells of both norms and deviations. For example, with a runny nose or otitis media, the appearance of fluid clearly indicates the disease. The human reproductive system is much more complex. Discharge in men, when aroused, may report a normal state of health, or conversely, indicate disease progression.
Should there be discharge in men during sexual stimulation?
In men, the appearance of mucus in the urethra in some cases is a natural and necessary process. When an erection occurs, a transparent discharge appears in the amount of several drops. They are called pre-seminal fluid, such a physiological phenomenon is completely normal.
The amount of mucus secretion depends entirely on the characteristics of the male body and must meet certain characteristics to be considered the norm. In particular, there should be no excessive density, color, certain odors.
The appearance of secretions occurs in the following cases that lead to an erection:
- Sexual caress of a partner;
- Thoughts on intimacy.
The frequency of occurrence of this phenomenon also depends on the characteristics of the reproductive system. Some men experience relief with each stimulus, while others rarely see it.
From the point of view of physicians, the presence of exudate during sexual stimulation promotes conception - it acts as an additional conductor for sperm in the process of reaching the egg and reduces the level of acidity of the female vagina, which destroys sperm. Thus, discharge from the genitals takes an active part in the process of fertilization and is considered an important mechanism of the male reproductive system.
Why is this happening?
Doctors do not yet fully know the cause of fluid leakage from the penis, however, it has been proven that the release of lubricant in men during the stimulation process helps facilitate the exit of the genital head from the folds without injury or damage. It is necessary to carefully observe intimate hygiene, the secreted fluid is an excellent breeding ground for pathogenic bacteria.
It is important to note that prolonged abstinence gives rise to more discharge, and the secretory composition becomes thicker and turbid. It is necessary to ensure that no discoloration, no blood streaks or unpleasant odors appear. Some doctors believe that the occurrence of fluid occurs because the body is preparing for intimacy with a woman.
Pathological discharge can appear for a variety of reasons:
- Improper nutrition, in particular, the use of sour, spicy, pickled;
- Inflammatory processes triggered by pathogenic bacteria;
- Venereal disease;
- Concomitant complications after surgery or injury;
- Oncological pathology.
Variety of release
Some types of discharge are normal, provided they are not accompanied by additional signs.
However, if certain odors, itching, fever, pain in the groin or in the penis are equivalent factors, then this is already a cause of concern and referral to a urologist.
Types of emissions associated with the norm
The 3 types of secrets produced and thrown are considered normal and natural.
- Libidous urethrorrhea. The secret to having a lubricating function. It looks like a liquid with a transparent, odorless consistency. Appears in small numbers, does not cause difficulties. The composition contains a small amount of sperm, however, with unprotected sex, pregnancy of the couple may occur;
- Spegma. The secret of whiteness, sometimes having a yellowish color, often smells unpleasant. Fluid secretion is provided by glands located under the foreskin. His appearance did not indicate pathology, but showed that the man was disregarding the rules of personal hygiene;
- Sperm. White liquid with a slimy consistency. Discharge occurs from the urethra during orgasm. Contains a high percentage of sperm and secretions.
Discharge containing mucus
They often indicate the onset of venereal disease. In cases where the secretion has a high viscosity, but maintains transparency, the probability of the following diseases is high:
Also, the disease is confirmed by the presence of high levels of leukocytes in the blood test.
Evidence of gonorrhea. The liquid that comes out is yellow with a greenish color and an unpleasant odor. The consistency is thick and sticky. When analyzed in secret, significant levels of leukocytes were found.
Discharge during inflammation
Inflammatory diseases that alter the composition of the discharge are caused by:
- Staphylococcus aureus;
- Escherichia coli;
- Candida fungi;
When non -gonorrheal urethritis occurs - inflammation in the urethral canal, the secreted fluid is characterized by:
- Turbidity and stickiness;
- The presence of mucus;
- Purulent contents.
It is accompanied by pain, discomfort, itching.
For foreskin disease, balanoposthitis, copious discharge is characteristic, contains a lot of purulent content. There is redness, swelling, severe pain.
Prostatitis is characterized by mucus secretion mixed with pus. Additional symptoms are pain, decreased erectile function, frequent desire to empty the bladder.
To determine candidiasis, it is enough to examine the photo, which depicts its secret features. It has a curd consistency, this form of mycosis is accompanied by redness of the glans of the penis, unbearable itching.
Come out with blood
Secrets that contain blood require the most careful attention. Similar signs indicate:
- Infectious diseases, especially chronic infectious urethritis;
- Injuries to the urethral canal during medical procedures;
- Removal of sand and stones from the kidneys, more blood is visible when urinating;
- Malignant formation in the area of the prostate gland, ovaries, genitals. In this case, the discharge contains brown or dark blood, often in the form of clots.
Norms or deviations?
Unclear pathological signs are the presence of mucus, pus, discoloration, fishy or sour odor, stickiness or turbidity.
- Average density;
- No smell.
For small changes in color and consistency, it is important to analyze:
- Your own sex life, the presence or absence of casual and unprotected intercourse;
- Factors that contribute to a decrease in the body's protective function;
- Possible changes in the regular menu;
- The presence of concomitant diseases.
Do I need to see a doctor?
An immediate visit to the doctor requires a secret that attracts attention that is unusual for a man. Any changes in the structure and color of the liquid require examination to identify the factors leading to the violation.
Diagnostic steps include:
- Sweep the urethra;
- Ultrasound examination of the organs of the genitourinary system;
- Urine collection for general analysis;
- Clinical blood tests.
Based on the diagnostic results, a treatment regimen for the underlying disease causing the appearance of pathological exudates is prescribed. Ignoring such symptoms leads to a deterioration in well-being and the transition of the disease into a chronic form that is difficult to treat. A timely visit to a urologist will allow you to quickly overcome the disease and maintain health for a long time.
When the penis is in an aroused state, a small amount of fluid is expelled from the urethra. This is a common phenomenon that exists in almost all healthy men. With the progression of the disease, the consistency and volume of the lubricant change. Unpleasant odor, pain or a burning sensation occur when urinating or having an erection. Such a clinical picture requires special attention from a person, because there is a threat to health.
The release during stimulation in men is called pre-ejaculation. It protrudes from the opening of the urethra at the time the man is aroused. Pre-seed is secreted by the bulbourethral glands and the Littre glands, which are located throughout the duct, from the outer opening to the neck of the bladder.
Release when pleasure in men performs the following functions:
- provides free passage of semen through the urethra;
- destroy bacteria;
- moisturizes and blocks the acidic environment in the urethra.
Pre-seed can also act as a lubricant during intercourse, but in most cases, the amount allocated will not be enough for this. Pre-ejaculation is one of the components of semen. It enters the semen during ejaculation, mixed with semen, which allows you to protect the sperm from the acidic environment of the female vagina.
The amount of pre-ejaculation directly depends on the level of arousal of the man. Maximum concentration is achieved with strong sexual desire. The normal volume of liquid is 5 ml.
Some members of the stronger sex are physiologically unable to produce lubricant. The absence of precession during an erection reduces the ability to conceive.
Healthy precum has the following characteristics:
- lack of odor;
- lack of lumps or inclusions;
- does not cause any unpleasant or painful sensations.
Pre-seed performs a cleaning function, so its consistency can change. A man may notice lubricating turbidity during repeated sexual intercourse, lack of hygiene, or before ejaculation. It will return to normal in 1-2 days. Otherwise, the development of the disease process should be suspected.
Pathological mucus secretion in men differs from healthy ones in color, odor and consistency. They are almost always accompanied by unpleasant sensations.
Symptoms that indicate abnormal lubrication:
- appearance of fluid from the urethra during the day;
- the occurrence of an unpleasant odor;
- pain during urination;
- formation of excessive amounts of mucus;
- voluntary release of lubricant without sexual stimulation;
- the presence of third party entries;
- changes in consistency to too concentrated or liquid.
These signs are characteristic of pathological processes that indicate the development of the disease.
Unhealthy discharge in men is divided into types:
|Spontaneous leakage of semen without reaching orgasm. The cause of the process is a decrease in the tone of the vas deferens muscles. Pathology develops due to chronic inflammation
|Release of grease contaminated with blood. Appears with injury of the mucous membrane of the urethra
|The exudative phase of the inflammatory process due to thermal, mechanical, chemical or viral damage to the mucous membrane of the urethra
|They consist of a small number of leukocytes, serous fluid and glandular secretions. This mucus is characterized by active formation at night. The man noticed the discharge of pus in the morning, and yellow spots could be found on his underwear. Mucopurulent discharge appears when the urethra is damaged by bacteria: Trichomonas, ureamicoplasma, chlamydia
|Includes large numbers of leukocytes, urethral epithelium, mucus and serous fluid. They have a thick consistency and an unpleasant odor. It appears as a droplet with a yellow or greenish color. Evidence of the development of gonococcal urethritis, which is formed against the background of chlamydia and gonorrhea
The amount of mucus secreted can be either large or small. Infrequent lubrication can be difficult to detect. To do this, you need to put pressure on the urethra so that fluid protrudes from the opening. It dries quickly, forming a film on the glans membrane of the penis. The viscous consistency leads to the adhesion of the urethral sponge.
Pre-ejaculation (pre-ejaculation, or Cooper fluid) is a clear, colorless, viscous pre-seminal fluid that is released from the urethra of a man’s penis outwards when he is sexually aroused. Pre-ejaculation is inevitable during human intercourse. This secret is also kept secret by a man during masturbation, in preparation for intercourse (e. g. , caressing) or in the early stages of intercourse, some time before the man reaches full orgasm and ejaculation.
The origin of pre-ejaculation
Pre-seeds are formed mainly by the bulbourethral gland (Cooper's gland), and also by the Littre gland.
The Littre gland is the site of additional preexisting formation. This is the tubular-alveolar urethral gland of the urethra, located along its entire length, from the outer opening to the neck of the bladder, in layers of submucosal, fibromuscular and connective tissues. They secrete and excrete mucus fluid, the amount of which increases with sexual stimulation. Along with Cooper’s gland secretions, Littre’s gland secretions also serve to moisten the urethra, to maintain a favorable alkaline response to sperm during their passage through the urethra.
The amount of pre-ejaculation excreted
The amount of pre-seminal fluid secreted by a man varies greatly among individuals. Some men do not produce pre-seeds, while others, the volume reaches 5 ml. Pre-seeds contain some of the chemicals found in seeds, such as acid phosphatase. And some seed markers, such as gamma-glutamyltransferase, are not fully present from pre-seed.
Functions performed by preseed
The acidic environment of the male urethra and female vagina is hostile to male semen. Pre-sperm neutralizes residual acidity in the urethra caused by urine, thus creating a better environment for sperm passage. Usually, the vaginal environment is acidic; pre-sperm entry before ejaculation can alter the vaginal environment to support semen survival. Pre-sperm can take up sperm that live in the urethra from previous ejaculation. Pre-sperm do not act as a lubricant during intercourse, but facilitate the passage of sperm through the ducts during ejaculation, and also participate in the coagulation of semen.
Risks Associated with Preseed Exposure
Studies have shown the presence of HIV in most pre-semen samples from HIV-infected men. Infection with the immunodeficiency virus leads to HIV infection, the last stage known as AIDS. Many also expressed concern that it is impossible to find sperm in pre-semen, and therefore cannot cause pregnancy, using this fact against the use of interrupted sexual intercourse (penis removal) as a method of contraception. There are no large studies to determine sperm content in pre-sperm, but several small studies have suggested that sperm is present in pre-sperm. It is also possible that pre-ejaculation released after a recent ejaculation will contain semen, as there is always some ejaculation left in the ducts after orgasm.
Enhanced pre-semen education
Some men worry about the amount of pre-seminal fluid they excrete. A doctor described a patient confused about pre-seeds leaking through pants during kissing and other mild erotic stimuli. Several reports have shown satisfactory results when these men are treated with 5-alpha reductase inhibitors . In such cases, a doctor recommends a differential diagnosis with prostatorrhea, secretions of the prostate gland during straining associated with urination or defecation.
For Sunni Muslims, the release of preseed during proper sleep requires a ritual of purification.
