discharge from penis could it be caused by prostate
Have been to doctors about 6 times and they have given medicine for every possible STD. They have ruled out STD and are saying it is a non specific infection of the urinal tract. I am not convinced as the problem occurs a week after the medication has finished. Could it possibly be caused by a prostate problem. Really getting desperate as this has been a on going problem for about 8 months.

Concerned, it can definitely be due to a prostate infection. The best would be to send away some of the discharge for MC&S (microscopy, culturing and sensitivity). It will tell you what the causative organism is and what the best antibiotic is to treat it with. Good luck.
