Welcome to ehealthforum,
Burning or discomfort during or after intercourse could indicate vaginal infection, or infection in seminal fluid, or allergy to seminal fluid proteins, etc. The immediate altered discharge that you describe could be semen leak (if it occurred right after the intercourse). The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further thorough examination and evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the symptoms that you describe. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.

It is worth noting, in addition to the doctor's comments, that the hygeine of uncircumcised males can be very poor.

Often no one tells them or teaches them that it is necessary to draw back the foreskin while cleaning the penis...

This is especially true of single parent families when mothers either do not think of it, know of it or are just too embarassed by it...

Uncircumcised men can carry some unpleasant bugs around in there...
