I've had sex twice with my boyfriend cuming inside of me (without a condom but on the pill). Both times when he came inside me not long after around my vagina i started to get a burning feeling. We've been screened for std's and we're both alright.
I dont get it with a condom, but i have also heard of an allergy to semen.. could it be that??
but then again his semen doesnt bother me if i swallow it or if its on my tummy.. it only seems when he cums inside of me.
What could be causing it??

When was the last time you had a GYN exam?

I ask, because if you're nursing a vaginal infection, such as a yeast or bacterial infection (and/or he is), it's very common to have burning or stinging with intercourse or other sexual activity.

So, take care of that first -- get in there and make sure you're healthy. If you are, I'd also encourage you to start using condoms so you both can STAY healthy. Being screened with negative results for STDs and STIS means only this: that at the time of the screening, you did not have any active STDs or STIS which CAN be tested for (mind you, some of the most common can't be tested for accurately without symptoms, like HPV and genital herpes, which in men can't be accurately screened for at all much of the time -- but your clinician or doctor certainly would have mentioned this at your boyfriend's last screening).

If you aren't presently nursing an infection it could be a semen allergy, or could be a matter of a lack of lubrication.
