Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hello Brad, thanks for getting in touch. The colour of your penis head is fairly normal to change different shades off purple/pink, depending on many things, such as temperature and how sexually excited you are, this is due to the amount of blood flowing to that part of your body, and this is most likely reason behind this. Regarding the small yellow spots, the most likely answer is that these are your glans, again perfectly normal, some men they are more visiable, others not as noticeable. However i'm not sure what is causing your foreskin being red, sometimes it can get a bit inflamed if you have been masterbating/wanking too much, but it could also be a sign of a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI), you haven't mentioned if you have had sex, and if you have, if it was unsafe (without a condom) if this is the case then there is a small chance that is what you may have picked up, if you have hand unsafe sex its best to book an appointment at the Swindon GUM clinic at the hospital, it is confidential so you parents won't find out, and if you need help we can make an appointment for you, and even come along with you if you need the support. I hope this has eased your concern, many lads feel concerned about there penis, having not seen others to compare it too, but they come in all shapes ans sizes so don't feel yours doesnt look nice. Please do get back in touch if you feel you want further advice.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hi Jamie,

Sometimes, straining the bowels can result in a discharge of fluids from from the penis, orginating from the prostate. These fluids are usually clear, but can sometimes be cloudy. However, the symptoms you describe need to be seen by a doctor for further investigation. You describe the discharge as thick, and also list redness and being sore. This points to the likelihood of an STI, so you need to have yourself tested again, despite having had negative results in the past. Sometimes, it can take time for an STI to show on a test. Normally, you will test positive within two weeks of contracting an STI, but this can take longer. You should also have your prostate checked for any irregularities. There are other issues for concern, in addition to your physical ones. You may want to talk about your past sexual experiences with someone. We can offer a number of services, including counselling and advice. Please give us a call to discuss further options: 01380801951 (Wiltshire) or 01793250951 (Swindon).

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

You really do need to see a doctor. If you don’t, there is a serious risk of long lasting damage as well as possible infection getting into your penis or even the bloodstream. In this situation the best person to help you may well be a urological surgeon. In the UK you would normally be sent to a surgeon through a visit to your GP who can arrange this urgently if needed. If you have difficulty getting to a GP you could try the emergency department (A&E) but it may depend on whether their hospital has a urology surgeon as to whether they can help you.





You may well also need a sexual health check up: rent boys are at risk of catching more infections than most people and even though many of them have regular checks you should consider regular checks yourself if you have sex with any of them.

Penis

i have a blue ish colout Glans and my foreskin is red but not painfull, just sensitive, please help

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Thank you for contacting us.



In the majority of men the colour of the glans can vary from pink to pale blue or purple.This is due to the blood vessels(capillaries) under the very thin skin that covers it.



Colour may vary with the degree of erection, ambient temperature and whether the person is circumcised or not, and this colouration is quite normal, and for some this can be the normal colour.



The foreskin discolouration may be due to a condition called Phimosis, which is the tightening for the foreskin. This is quite common and can vary from having virtually no effect to having a quite sever effect, but for the majority of men it has little to no effect.



If you are still concerned about your glans and foreskin, we would recommend going and talking to you doctor, we appreciate that you may feel embarrassed about this but please be assured that doctors deal with these types of questions a lot more regularly than you would think, so will deal with you with respect and in confidence.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hello and thank you for contacting us. Having unprotected sex does put you at risk of catching a sexually transmitted infection, HIV and pregnancy. Going home and washing and masturbating will have little to no effect. It's impossible for us to say if the spots/pimples are anything to do with the unprotected sex, but nearly all Sexually Transmitted Infections take much longer to show any signs/symptoms, some don't even show any. But yes you will be at risk due to the simple fact you had unprotected sex, and that it was with a prostitute increases your risk, so we would encourage you to go to your local GUM clinic, or GP, Doctor to get a full screen test and refrain from having sex with anyone else till you take the test and get the results, as if you have caught something you risk passing it on to someone else. If you need any condoms in the future, please be aware you can get them free from our website if you live in the Swindon area. If you need any further advice please do get back in touch.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hello and thank you for getting in touch with us. Phimosis can be tricky to treat, as it can return. I don't know if the damage it caused from when you were first infected has not been completely healed or if it can be. Due to already having been prescribed something from your doctor, and the fact we do not ever prescribe medicines, we suggest you go back to your doctor and address this issue with him and see what he can do to treat your penis tip. Sorry we couldn't offer more advice, we hope you understand in this instance.

Sore penis after sex

im 56 my wife is 49 over the past few months my penis has become very red and sore after having sex

Asked by michael
30th March 2014 (in Health)

Tags: penis red

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

There are a number of reasons why this may happen. Given your ages, it may be that your wife is not producing very much natural lubrication – it gets less for most women as they get older, particularly once they reach the menopause when their periods stop. You could start by buying a vaginal lubricant – most pharmacies sell them. The easiest way is for your wife to ask a female pharmacist for one – many women use them and there is no need for embarrassment. You should then gently massage some into her vagina before sex and also put plenty on your penis.





If the problem does not go away, ask your doctor. It is possible that the problem has another cause, for example a yeast infection.

Red tip of penis

Just made love to my partner and have a red tip to my penis It's nearly her time of the month and also when I tried to urinate only a little bit came out please help

Asked by anonymous
14th March 2015 (in Health)

Tags: penis glands red gay

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

It sounds as if the red tip to your penis might be some slight inflammation. This could be from a number of causes, but probably not from your partner's time of the month. Her secretions change a bit during the monthly cycle, but unless she was unusually dry during sex they wouldn't cause your inflammation. Passing only a small amount of urine just afterwards probably reflects the fact that it is red and inflamed rather than there being anything wrong with your urine. 





If you have been together for some time and neither of you has had another partner, it probably isn't necessary to have a check for STIs, but on the other hand the inflammation might be due to conditions like thrush or bacterial vaginosis which are not normally sexually acquired, so it is still worth you both getting a check if the problem persists.





A little lubricant during sex may help for the future.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

It does sound like you might have an infection, this is not something to worry about but you do need to visit your doctor or a sexual health clinic, GUM, STD or STI clinic. You should go as soon as you can and certainly in the next couple of weeks. Living with an infection is not a good idea as it can cause problems later in life. If you cannot get to a sexual health clinic then talking with your doctor is advised – doctors are used to talking about sexual questions and would much prefer you talk to them than worry.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

It sounds most likely that you may have a condition called "haematospermia". There are a number of causes for this, but in a younger man it isn’t often serious. Leakage of blood into your sperm from small capillaries is the commonest cause. The blood itself can irritate the urethra (pee tube) as you ejaculate, causing some pain.





We cannot tell you if your case is one of the rare ones which might be more serious so you ought to see your own doctor for a check. Depending on the findings you might need to see a specialist, but if nothing is found and you have had no more than 3 episodes of red gel in a month, you will probably not need any treatment.





It may still be worth considering whether you might have an infection.This is not something to worry about but you would also to visit your doctor or a sexual health clinic, GUM or STD or STI clinic to get this sort of check. Living with an infection is not a good idea as it can cause problems later in life. Remember that doctors are used to talking about sexual questions and would much prefer you talk to them than worry.
