For the last two partners i have been with i have started to leak a large amount of what looks to be a watery substance (it leaves a wet patch on the bed) when having sex, and it is not cum, due to the fact that sex has now started to feel painful. I am very worried, as sex is now less enjoyable for my partner, and not at all for me anymore.
i have been to the doctors twice, once four months ago, which i got tested for an std and came back clear
second time, they didnt test me but said it could be thrush and gave me some pills, but unfortunatley it has not solved my issue.
please help!

Hi Anonymous,

Vaginal thrush, also known as a yeast infection, sounds like it could be right, you just might need a single-dose medication called Diflucan if it was not completely cleared with your previous dose or other medications. If a second dose does not clear it, then you may need a second opinion from another doctor or the same one. 

I also want to say that it is important that if you had unprotected sex your partner also gets treated for thrush since you can easily get it again if you had sex with him prior to treatment and then you have sex with him again after-- you have been treated but he hasn't, so it ends up being a cycle. Do not have sexual intercourse until both have been treated in order to avoid reinfection.
