Had white rubbery discharge. After inserting Candid pessary and having sex, having orangish discharge. Reason?

Hi , I have been suffering from a white rubbery/powdery discharge for the last 6-8 months. It was first diagnosed as thrush and I took a canestene gel pessary & a flucanazole tablet & although it reduced my symptoms, it did not completely cure it. Because I have had no pain/itchiness except occasional dryness & discomfort during sex, I let it be until a week ago when a gynacologist prescribed me with Candid V3 pessaries for 9 nights & Candid CL gel for topical use along with Antibiotics Doxyl (1-0-1) & T.Enidazole (1-0-1). On the night after my period ended, I had sex and immediately afterward, I inserted the 1st pessary, and the next day i got a scary toothpaste-like (orangish) discharge with a bright red piece of mucus . The 2nd night, I inserted the pessary again , and today again, I have a similar discharge. Is this normal? Why this discharge?I experience no pain, but a slight discomfort due to the discharge. I will appreciate your advice. Thanks.

Thanks for the query.
Usually after Inserting the pessary, in the next day morning the remnants of pessary can come out as thick white or rubbery discharge.
Abrasions or congestion due to intercourse may be responsible for blood stain.
No need to worry about it.
You can continue the tablets prescribed by your doctor.
Only after completion of the treatment, results can be expected.
Both the partners to be treated simultaneously to prevent future cross infections.
If the white discharge occurs after completion of the treatment, better to go for vaginal swab culture and sensitivity once.
Take care.
