OP: Cloudiness in urine

I've had this problem for several years now, i can't remember exactly when it started, but I never worried about it before until

I'm a male in my early 20s, and what happens is that, occasionally, there is some cloudiness in my urine. That is, while I'm in the middle of urinating, for a few seconds the urine will become cloudy or almost whitish even, before returning to a more normal yellow colour. This has been happening for years, I cannot discern any regularity to this or connect it to any activity or diet, and I don't think this is an STD since it started well before I ever had sex for the first time, and I've only had sex with a few partners since then and always with a condom. But if this is not an std, what can it be? Does anyone have any idea.

Thanks for any response, though i think i'll get it checked out soon anyway.

I am not a doctor, so I can't answer specifically. However, for background information:

The kidneys remove waste material, minerals, fluids, and other substances from the blood for elimination in the urine. Therefore, urine can contain hundreds of different bodily waste products. Many factors (such as diet, fluid intake, exercise, and kidney function) affect what is in urine.

Over 100 different tests can be done on urine; a routine urinalysis usually includes a test for clarity. This test (also called opacity or turbidity) determines the cloudiness of the urine. Urine is normally clear. Bacteria, blood, sperm, crystals, or mucus can make urine appear cloudy.

It would be worth getting it checked out by your doctor, even if only to put your mind at rest.

Once again, ItalStallion has done his homework. If this has been happening for years and if there is no smell nor burning associated with it, the most likely cause is you are shedding a little unused semen! Semen and sperm are being made constantly. If a friend does not remove it for you, it will build up beyond storage capacity and dump out into the urine stream.

Still may be a good idea to ask a doctor face to face. Otherwise, I prescribe more sex!
