hi,there is nothing like matching of sperms and vagina,this could be simply infection in your private parts.As you were already having candidiasis,there might be some super added bacterial infection on it.Please avoid having sex without condom.Please take care,pregnancy is not the only threat for unprotected sex.Please get in tough with your doctor for more.

hi there, I m just concerned as every time I seem to have sex I get a very painful burning sensation in my vagina that stays for a few days. This happened last year after my first time having sex and I contacted my doctor over the phone and she just said I had a urine infection but recently I have had sex with my new partner and it has happened again, only this time it seems worse as it is very sore when I use the toilet and I have also started passing through small amounts of blood in my urine, there is also a fish like smell and there s is like a pea sized swelling in the open on my vagina. It only ever happens after I have sex and I dont quite understand why, could you please help me? thanks.
