Vaginitis: Assuming that the sex is unprotected, one of the many that can contribute to altering the vaginal flora is the ejaculate. Like with most exposures, the body will adjust its defenses. Until that happens, use of an OTC (over the counter) aid (e.g. Vagisil) and/or dietary adjustments (prebiotics in yogurt) can be considered.

No (within reason): So many things to address here. I will summarize by saying that risk assessment is key here (e.g. comorbidities present, pregnancy, etc...). Use of OTC (over the counter)remedies should be considered. Finally, if symptoms worsen, see doctor ASAP.
