People who are experiencing bacterial or viral urethritis may also notice that they have vaginal or penile discharge during the day. The release appears as a yellow, green or milky fluid. Unfortunately, this is another symptom that’s commonly associated with sexually transmitted infection., and patients may fear that they have caught an STI.
The thought of contracting a sexually transmitted infection may raise all sorts of trust issues with your partner. However, those patients that are in a committed relationship with their partner, and trust that they are not cheating, may need to visit their doctor for examination. The bacteria that cause urethritis is very aggressive, and it’s responsible for the discharge.
After receiving treatment for the infection with antibiotic medications, the patient will experience a rapid recovery, and most symptoms of bacterial urethritis will start to dissipate in 24 to 48-hours after the initial administration of drugs to treat the condition.
