Sticky Fluid after urination

My husband is 35 yrs old and is quite healthy. Since last week he has noticed that sometimes after urinating there is a discharge of sticky clear fluid. There is no discomfort besides yesterday when he had the urge to go more to urinate.
Could this be something serious?

Dear Aya
If the fluid is yellow or greenish it may be an infection that needs antibiotics, especially if he has slight burning when urinating. One can also get some semen in the urine when some of the semen pushes back into the bladder (retrograde ejaculation)
