If it happens to be an infection. Would it be that bad? Please let me know because I'm getting very worried.

I also wanted to thank Gumdrop Girl for the info.

If you do have a genital infection, it's a very bad idea to leave it untreated.

But most infections can be treated (and cured) very easily - you just need to see a doctor.

As Gumdrop said, it's perfectly normal to get a "discharge" of pre-ejaculate when you're sexually aroused (or, for example, to ejaculate during sleep - a "wet dream"). You only need to worry if you're getting a discharge from your penis for no reason, or if it's an odd colour. If either of those is true, then you should see a doctor.

Depends on what the infection was and how long you've had it. But most genital infections ARE treatable, so just get in and see your doctor or sexual health clinic without waitng around too much. Infections left untreated can spread and become serious.

Worrying doesn't make anyone better: taking care of things does.
