Last Tuesday I underwent a cystectomy on my right ovary. Previous to the surgery, I was told by the ER doctor's (two weeks prior to surgery) that I had a UTI, which they treated, though I was feeling none of the symptoms. My boyfriend is visiting from out of town and we tried having sex last night. Afterwards, I went to clean myself up and noticed pink, cottage-cheese like discharge on my legs and around my vagina. My urine has been a bit cloudy lately and there is a slight itching and burning sensation. Is this a yeast infection, combined with another symptom from the surgery? Also, can men contract yeast infections in any way from intercourse?
