I asked about before (Greenish-clear, happens sometimes. No odor, no itch). My mother said it could be from having intercourse without condoms (BF and I have current STD tests, we're not due until January next). She said that the chemicals in his fluids can disrupt the pH balance, is this true?

I just had a normal pap smear, and the doctor did not note any inflammation or abnormal discharge. She said I looked very healthy "down there." I went to my gyno about this discharge before and it came back negative for all STDs and BV (including trich).

I'm just worried that it's something to be concerned about.

Well, chemically, semen is very different than vaginal discharges: it's alkaline, vaginal discharge is acidic. So, by all means, after unprotected intercourse with ejaculation, it's common to notice changes in vaginal fluids for a day or two.

Since your doctor didn't find anything amiss, that'd be what this likely is about.
