Hello,
thanks for using health care magic.

Cottage cheese discharges, itches and even soreness are typical of yeast infections. Yeast infection is not thought to be sexually transmissible but it is believe than sexual intercourse predisposes to yeast infections.
With the characteristic symptoms, a yeast infection is more likely and appropriate treatment is required. Yeast infection could be treated comfortably with ketoconazole, clotrimazole or nystatin ovules and creams.
Also, it could be that your sexual encounter was a traumatic or rough and you sustained bruises on the already underlying cause.
What you should do is to meet your doctor for a vaginal swap for microscopy, pH and KOH tests and also for appropriate prescription.
Behavioural changes such use of cotton pants, avoiding deep douching and avoiding use of antiseptics for vaginal toileting should be encouraged.

Best regards and hope this helps you.
