Hi! Many thanks for your question on eHealth forum!

White discharge from penis can be smegma, which is a normal discharge. It can also be a fungal infection. STD from gonococcal urethritis, which can persist for months after exposure, can also cause white discharge. It can also be non gonococcal urethritis due to irritants like soaps and detergents.

Since you had unprotected sex, have pain while urination and a white discharge it can be gonorrhea. First get a STD test for confirmation. Gonorrhea responds to several antibiotics such as Amoxycillin, Ciprofloxacin, Ofloxacin and Azithromycin. However for full course and treatment please consult a STD clinic. Hope this helps. Take care!
