Is frequent occurrence of strep infection detrimental to overall health?

I have been diagnosed with strep following a swab taken by the gp. I was prescribed anti biotics and recovered fully. Having had sexual intercourse with my partner, the infection reoccurred. The gp will not prescribe a further course of anti biotics as she believed it will not improve the situation. I have a thin white milky discharge which is slightly smelly, but no other symptoms. I am becoming increasingly concerned that this maybe damaging to my overall health as I feel tired all the time and I'm coughing up stuff each morning when I rise.... can you please advise?

Hello to healthcare magic!

First I have a couple of questions do you have pain when having sexual intercourse, is your white flow having bubbles ( like fizzy water or soda) or is it like cottage cheese? what is the color of the fluid? Also remember that in STDs ( sexually transmitted diseases) both partners are treated!
