Not a expert on this subject, but i don't think that's going to help. The sperm is pretty high up there, and would be unable to be reached? lol Correct me if i'm wrong. I could be totally on the wrong track here.

Never attempt to clean the inside of the vagina. You can clean the outside (the vulva), but never try to clean the inside unless your doctor tells you to for some reason. The vagina cleans itself. If you try to douche or put soap in your vagina, it can give you some nasty infections.

The vagina has good bacteria that keeps it clean. So anti-bacterial soaps and wipes are not good for near the vagina since it can throw your body's natural balance off by killing good bacteria. Regular soap and warm water is a good way to wash the vulva.

Yes, they do make what are often called "feminine wipes." That is not the same thing as "anti-bacterial wipes" however.

Good point. It's recommended that women pee within about 15 minutes after sex.

There's no need to clean beyond just going to the bathroom and letting whatever falls out, come out. I'm on the pill so I don't use condoms either, and all I do is sort of push out what I can with my vaginal muscles, and urinate and wipe. Done! lol.

You may have a yeast imbalance in your system, that can cause the white/yellow discharge. Try drinking at least 8 glasses of clean water, avoid tap water. Take probiotics, and eat yogurt. Your vagina has its ow special ph level that it tries to maintain and sometimes sex can through that off and makes us more Susceptible to yeast infections, which can cause the thicker discharges.
