TMI-unbelievable amounts of discharge! Can anyone help?

As the title says really, on Monday I started pouring out discharge and it hasn't let up. I had a baby 11 weeks ago and am breastfeeding. I had sex for the first time on Sunday night (won't be doing that again in a hurry!) and then, voila, Monday lunchtime someone turned on the tap...

It's more than a heavy period amount, it floods my pads and is clear, yellowish and has no smell. I went to the doc on Weds (after I had soaked my PJ's and bed overnight for two nights) who was a bit dismissive and took swabs. I think she just thought it would clear up but it is no better. It's so heavy that if I stand up with no pants on it drips fast down my legs in rivulets! Oh the joys of childbirth.

My whole lady bits are also very very sore and look very red. They were a tiny bit sore before the pesky sex but nothing like this. We used a condom and it was a type we have used before. Even so, I wonder if its a new allergy as obviously we haven't used the condoms for a year since TTC this baby.

Please please can anyone help?

No idea! it sounds terrible for you. What about calling NHS direct for some help?

Thankyou littlemiss. Just got off phone re test results and they found a strep A bug-she said I basically have strep throat in my bits! Nice.
Got antibiotics and feel much happier now I think there's a reason and treatable cause (fingers crossed the antibiotics work!)
