Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Change in vaginal discharge after intercourse suggests infection (most likely a yeast infection). Visit your gynecologist for a vaginal swab test to be done to identify and confirm the infection and get it treated appropriately. Do not delay further, it can spread and become worse.
Take care.
