Has anyone experienced this at all? I've been riding for 15 years, normally averaging around 150 miles (plus or minus) per week when I'm riding at my peak. This past weekend, I rode 175 in 3 days. At the end of the third ride (an 80-miler) I noticed some yellowish discharge which has lasted now for 2+ days. There is no associated pain/itching/redness, etc, and there is absolutely NO question this is an STD. After researching a bit online, I located the term "mechanical urethritis" with an associated cause of cycling being one of the potential causes. Is this something that will heal on its own if I take some time off the bike, or have I done some semi-permanent damage? What's the risk of going for a ride before this clears up? Thanks in advance...
