I have a clumpy white discharge that only comes out after I have sex with my bf. It actually went away for about a week, and then the next week I had my period, and now its come back. It has no odor, I have none of the typical yeast infection symptoms. It actually started after I went to a planned parenthood and had a pap exam. I have had no other side effects, but i have changed my type of bc-but only after the discharge started. What could be causing this? I have had an increase in caffeine intake since I work at a coffeehouse, and my diet hasn't been the best....but its been that way for a while and this only started a few weeks ago. What could it be thats causing it?

Genital discharge (genital fluor) can be due to increased secretion by the oviducts, uterus, cervix, vagina or vulva. Vaginal discharge is the most common type. There could be various reasons for genital discharge but infection is the most frequent cause of discharge. Genital discharge after sex could be due to increased secretion of the Bartholini’s glands placed in the vulva. You can consult a gynecologist to exclude infection.
