Washing or wiping sperm off the outside doesn't do anything for sperm that are already in the vagina. If you don't want to be pregnant, you need to use a reliable method of contraception and showering, wiping and douching are not that. Hope this helps. ...Read more

If those scenarios don't fit then it may be that you have an underlying yeast infection. I would advise an exam if this does not clear up quickly. ...Read more
