Is there an STI caused by fecal matter? anal sex?

I'm a male, and I have been having unprotected anal sex somewhat frequently these past few months. I am the one who is "topping", so I am the one who is penetrating someone else. About 1 month ago, I started to notice a slight discomfort while urinating, almost like a slight stinging/burning further down the shaft. I also noticed a white discharge that would dry over the tip of my penis. I went to the doctor who prescribed me antibiotics and tested my urine for STDs, but the test came back negative. The doctor never did tell me what I had. I took the antibiotics and the symptoms went away.

Now, I had unprotected anal sex again with the same partner about 10 days ago, and am beginning to notice the exact same symptoms. Could this be caused by fecal bacteria? And if so, is there a name for a similar condition that isn't necessarily an STI like chlamydia or Ghonorrea? Should I be worried about taking antibiotics so soon after taking the last ones (about one month ago)?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Yes it is infection and likely fecal bacteria. Supportive and symptomatic care is needed. Good coital habits are advised.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
