Hi there, I have a personal question that I am sure you can help me with. Recently about 2 months ago I went to see my doctor for yearly Physical which included swab test of vagina. Than later was perscribed for bacterial vaginosis (yeast infection) which i commonly get at most once a year. Which in turn 2 week thereafter i noticed it didn't go away fully so took different medication for same cause. The symptoms i recieve in order to know i have it include irritation during sex, and white chunky discharge on boyfriends penis during sex. I dont get bad odor or itchiness. It went away thankfully but just this week when having sex with boyfriend I got the irritation during sex. It is inside my vagina, and feels as though its tender to touch (not unbearable) but fairly uncomfortable and painful. I am concerned that maybe there is other avenues to look at, because I have had 2 swab test in the last 2 months that came back negative ofany STD i am concerned it could be something else?

Hi
Welcome to the forum!
The symptoms you experience now (irritation during sex, pain or a tender point deep in vagina) could be due to fungal infection lingering. Normally as you say there is white chunky discharge, which may not be there now. However there could be vaginitis or inflammation of the vagina due to infection. Lingering fungal infection is due to the fact that both partners are not treated at the same time.
The other possibilities are STDs. Swab tests for STDs are inconclusive. You will need to do the routine urine and blood tests for them.
Pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, irritable bowel syndrome, cervical infection, uterine infection, and pelvic tumors all cause deep pelvic pain with intercourse.
However without examining it is difficult to give a confirmed diagnosis on net. Please discuss this with your gynecologist and do as advised. Hope this helps. Take care!
