Hi, first time user.  Age 49 - My question is this: I had my prostate removed last Nov, and, as of now, (Aug) my erections are near normal. Most of my orgasiums are dry. But twice, there has been a fluid that shoots out like the good old days. But its not white - its pale yellow, but thickish and sticky. I was under the impression that after the operation, I was steril. Any advice out there? My wife does not want to have more children.

you still have the cowper's gland which produces precum. That is probably the gooey factor. The yellow is almost certainly a bit of urine mixed with it. Here's what is happening from a mechanical angle. You get aroused and produce pre-cum which is hanging around inside your urethra. (Pre surgery much of the precum was also prostatic fluid). And, at the point of orgasm, a small amound of urine is being expelled from the bladder. It shoots out, pushing (and mixing with) the precum in your urethra. Out comes a pale yellow, gooey liquid.

That fluid is all sterile - as in it has no germs. YOU are definitely sterile - as in you are no longer expelling sperm in your fluid. If it bothers your wife, make sure you urinate right before sex and it should take care of things.

Thank you Paul, both my wife and I were thinking all sorts of things, like the doctor didn't take it out or it grew back. So THANK YOU!  BTW- my wife is concerned about the fluid getting inside her and causing an infection. When you mentioned "no germs" is that true? It seem the trace of my pee would cause a problem. Frankly, I can't seem to empty - completely.
Thanks, Tim

Temery-

Urine is sterile - didn't you watch Friends on tv?

1/2005 Dx PSA 26.5 Gleason 7 (4+3) @Age 61
1/2005 Start Casodex and Zoladex
PSA drops to <0.01
7/2005-8/2005 5 weeks of IMRT and then HDR brachy
1/2007 Rad Oncologist orders CT scan of pelvis
because of complaints of pain in both thighs
MRI confirms pain not caused by cancer BUT
1/2007 CT scan of pelvis picks up a nodule at bottom of left lung
5/2007 CT scan of lungs shows 1/2007 nodule has grown and
there are numerous nodules on both lungs.
6/2007 Thoracic surgeon removes wedge of left lung for biopsy
6/2007 Path report says 95% chance of metastatic PCa, but she's
never seen cells like this before.
8/2007 2nd opinion at M.D. Anderson in Houston.
They confirm: mutated PCa, very rare, but seen there 2 or
3 times. Recommendation: have CT scans every 6 weeks
and watch for change. At that point start chemo and will
survive for 22 - 24 months thereafter.
PSA still undetectable, but get Lupron shot to bring T down from 27
2/2008 Trip to Houston – PSA now 0.5 and nodules larger. Lupron shot.
6/2008 Trip to Houston - Finally got results from doc. A number of lung nodules have grown, but, more important to him, is the fact that the malignant lesion on my pelvis seems to have flared up and he wants me to start chemo. He said I could wait a few months, but I told him I want to start now. He to get me signed up for a clinical trial in nearby NY.

Welcome Temery, despite the general perception out there, urine is just as Gordy says, completely sterile. That is why your urine is slightly acidic..........an acidic environment inhibits the growth of bacteria. The only exception is of course when you have a bladder infection.

Temery-

I didn't even think it was funny at the time, let alone now, but the group was on a beach and one gets stung by a jellyfish on the foot. They dig a hole in the sand, the victim sticks her foot in the hole and one of the others urinates on it, "because urine is sterile". Really bad - not even worth taking up space on the 'Net.
