Transparent discharge during arousal in men: norms and deviations.

When the penis is aroused, a small amount of fluid is released from the urethra. This is a normal phenomenon that occurs in almost all healthy men. As diseases develop, the consistency and volume of the lubricant changes. There is an unpleasant odor, pain, or burning sensation when urinating or having an erection. Such a clinical picture requires special attention from a person, since there is a threat to health.

Discharge in men when they are excited.

The discharge during arousal in men is called pre-ejaculation. It protrudes from the opening of the urethra when the boy becomes excited. Precum is secreted by the bulbourethral glands and Littre's glands, which are located along the entire length of the canal, from the external opening to the neck of the bladder.

Discharges during arousal in men perform the following functions::

  • ensure the free passage of seminal fluid through the urethra;
  • destroy bacteria;
  • moisturize and suppress the acidic environment in the urethra.

Pre-cum can also act as a lubricant during intercourse, but in most cases the amount released will not be enough for this. Pre-ejaculation is one of the components of semen. It enters the seminal fluid during ejaculation and mixes with semen, helping to protect sperm from the acidic environment of the woman's vagina.

Normal amount of mucus

The volume of pre-ejaculate depends directly on the man's degree of arousal. Maximum concentration is achieved with a strong sexual desire.The normal amount of liquid is 5 ml..

Some representatives of the stronger sex are physiologically incapable of secreting lubricant. The absence of pre-ejaculation during an erection reduces the ability to conceive.

Healthy pre-ejaculation has the following characteristics:

  • without smell;
  • transparency;
  • goo;
  • absence of lumps or inclusions;
  • It does not cause unpleasant or painful sensations.

The pre-seed performs cleaning functions, so its consistency may change. A man may experience cloudy lubricant with repeated sexual intercourse, poor hygiene, or before ejaculation. He will be back to normal in 1 or 2 days. Otherwise, the development of a pathogenic process should be suspected.

Signs of deviation from the norm

The secretion of pathological mucus in men differs from the healthy one in color, smell and consistency. They are almost always accompanied by unpleasant sensations.

Symptoms indicating a deviation of the lubricant from the norm.:

  • the appearance of fluid from the urethra during the day;
  • the appearance of an unpleasant odor;
  • pain when urinating;
  • formation of excessive amounts of mucus;
  • voluntary release of lubrication without sexual arousal;
  • presence of third party inclusions;
  • changes consistency to become too thick or runny.

These signs are characteristic of pathological processes that indicate the development of diseases.

Unhealthy discharge in men is divided into types:

Guy Description
spermatorrhea Random leakage of sperm without reaching orgasm. The cause of the process is the decrease in muscle tone of the vas deferens. Pathology develops due to chronic inflammation.
Hematorrhea Discharge of lubricant mixed with blood. It appears with lesions of the urethral mucosa.
Leukocytic urethrorhea The exudative phase of the inflammatory process, resulting from thermal, mechanical, chemical or viral damage to the urethral mucosa.
mucopurulent They consist of a small amount of leukocytes, serous fluid and glandular secretions. This mucus is characterized by active formation at night. A man notices pus discharge in the morning and yellow stains can be found on his underwear. Mucopurulent discharge appears when the urethra is damaged by bacteria: trichomonas, ureamycoplasma, chlamydia.
Purulent They include a large number of leukocytes, urethral epithelium, mucus and serous fluid. They have a thick consistency and an unpleasant odor. They appear in the form of drops with a yellow or greenish tint. Evidence of the development of gonococcal urethritis, which is formed against the background of chlamydia and gonorrhea.

The volume of mucus released can be abundant or small. It can be quite difficult to notice poor lubrication. To do this, you have to press the urethra so that liquid comes out through the opening. It dries quickly, forming a film on the membrane of the head of the penis. The slimy consistency causes the urethral sponges to stick together.

Causes of pathological discharge.

Lubricant secretion that differs from the norm is in most cases due to sexually transmitted diseases, but there are other conditions.

If pathological discharge appears with unpleasant symptoms, the development of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) should be suspected. Such diseases develop under the influence of unfavorable microflora, which settles on the mucous membrane of the urethra, external areas and cavities of the genital organs and in the glands.

Classification of STDs:

Pathogen Diseases
  • Inguinal granuloma;
  • chancroid;
  • syphilis;
  • lymphogranuloma;
  • chlamydia;
  • gonorrhea;
  • mycoplasmosis;
  • ureaplasmosis
  • HIV;
  • Herpes;
  • Condyloma;
  • papillomavirus;
  • Molluscum contagiosum
  • Candidiasis
  • Scabies;
  • Ftiriaz

The prostate plays a key role in sperm formation. It produces a secretion, without which the seminal fluid loses its functionality. When the prostate becomes inflamed, its production increases.

Men who suffer from chronic prostatitis may notice that when they become aroused, a large amount of lubricant comes out of the urethral opening. It is a prostate secretion that has a fairly high similarity to pre-ejaculation.

Excessive discharge during excitation may appear with the development of the following conditions:

  • inflammatory processes;
  • allergy;
  • hypothermia;
  • Physical or chemical injuries.

After catheterization, the appearance of clear mucus in the urethra can be observed. This fluid is formed as a protective reaction of the body to the resulting microtrauma on the surface of the mucous membrane.

A large amount of clear discharge during ejaculation may indicate the development of infertility.

To diagnose pathologies, not only the visual nature of the liquid is taken into account, but also its biological composition. The man needs to see a doctor for examination.

Can lubricant fertilize?

It is a proven medical fact that male lubricant contains a small amount of sperm. There is a small chance of getting pregnant if pre-ejaculate leaks during unprotected sex.

The greatest chance of conception in this case occurs in the middle of the cycle, when the woman has ovulated and the cervix is open. In other situations, the concentration of male germ cells in the precum will not be sufficient. They will quickly die in the vagina, outside of the sperm's nutrient medium.

The probability of conception is much higher with repeated sexual contact, when the lubricant contains a fairly large number of sperm.

To prevent unwanted pregnancies, men are recommended to urinate to eliminate residual semen.
