Burns and clumps of white!

Okay, I've had a yeast infection before. Itching, bunch of white stuff, burning, boyfriends penis burning as well after sex (Cortizone works best for guys burning itching red penis!). So I know the symptoms of one.
Well me and my boyfriend have sex just about everyday, on occasion twice/three times a day. I recently got into a car accident ( Yes I'm fine C: ) so I hadn't seen him for awhile. Probably about 4 or 5 days, well we finally have sex and immediately theres just tons, and tons, and I mean TONS of white clumps of I'm not even sure! Just white clumps.
I mean it didnt hurt. Later that day it hurt a little to pee. And my vagina was a little uncomfortable. I found I had to hold toilet paper to the edge of my vagina to stop it from burning that certain spot. But thats nothing new. It usually burns sometimes after sex if it touches my surronding skin.
Well we had  sex the next day and there wasn't as much clumps of white. Well we just had sex and he said there was a little there.
Is this something I should worry about or...? Also I dont burn down there necessairily today, right after that sex session its like the lips were burning a bit. Probably for about 30minutes to an hour, now there fine.

But I did shave this morning soo. .. . .i dont know.

Also, A couple of weeks ago I used to have this issue. At work when I saw water running I immeidately had to pee. Drinking too much soda made me pee. Hearing water run through our machine made me have to pee. I was so bad that I would pee, go out to wash my hands, and then I'd see/hear the water and I'd have to pee again. It's not a whole lot either. Doesn't burn when I pee, but I just have to frequently pee! ALSO, it's only when I'm at work that this occurs. I've heard of something called Cystitis? But then people say it could burn because of the friction of sex. Or the pee touching a small tear. They say Cystitis can be cause from having a lot of unprotected frequent sex.

Lastly, When someone says see a doctor about any vaginal issues, are they talking about a Gyno? And are there any free ones you can see on a regualr base up for check ups?

im not sure anout the white stuff are u sure its not just discharge? If u aren't already then u should try using lubricant and see if it still burns afterwards and if the burning has been caused by friction then while using lube it shouldnt,and all the peeing could be from an overactive bladder but if the issue worsens or doesnt get better you should see a gynocologist soon,im not sure if there is a free clinic where you live but there is one here where i live in Odessa Tx

I DID SOME RESEARCH REAL QUICK ON CYSTITIS FOR U CHECK THIS OUT AND SEE IF THIS APPLIES TO YOU,,,AND PLEASE NOTICE WHILE READING IT THAT IT SAYS THAT THE CHANCE OF U GETTING CYSTITUS INCREASES WHEN U HAVE SEX ALOT....WISH U THE BEST =)
Symptoms of cystitis include:

a stinging or burning sensation when you pass urine
the need to pass urine more often
feeling you want to urinate urgently, even if you pass very little or no urine
cloudy or dark coloured urine
blood in your urine
pain or tenderness in your lower back or lower abdomen (tummy)
feeling generally unwell
Cystitis can be painful, particularly when you pass urine, but it usually clears up within four to nine days.

These symptoms can also be due to a sexually transmitted infection (STI) such as chlamydia. If you think you may have an STI, visit your GP or a sexual health clinic.

Causes of cystitis
Cystitis is often caused by bacteria that get into your urethra from surrounding skin and travel up towards your bladder, causing infection and irritation. Most infections are caused by bacteria that normally live harmlessly in your bowel, usually a type of bacteria called Escherichia coli (or E. coli for short).

Women get cystitis more than men partly because, in women, the urethra is nearer the opening of the back passage (anus) where bacteria from your bowel can collect. This makes it easier for bacteria to get transferred from the surrounding skin into the urethra. The urethra is also much shorter in women than men, so there is less distance for the infection to travel to the bladder.

You're more likely to get cystitis if you:

are sexually active - the risk increases the more often you have sex
use spermicide-coated condoms or a diaphragm with spermicide
have been through the menopause - causing changes to the lining of your vagina and urethra, making you more likely to have bacteria in your urine
have a urinary catheter - introducing bacteria directly into your bladder
have diabetes - your urine may contain more sugar, encouraging bacteria to grow
have a condition that prevents you from emptying your bladder such as bladder or kidney stones, an enlarged prostate or if you're pregnant
use irritants such as certain soaps, which may irritate your urethra or bladder
Diagnosis of cystitis
If you're a woman and in good health, you may not need to see your GP, as cystitis often clears up by itself with home treatments. However you should contact your GP if:

your symptoms don't improve after two to three days
you have blood in your urine
you're pregnant or may be pregnant
you're over 65
you have a high temperature, feel sick or are vomiting
you have pain in your lower back or severe abdominal pain
the cystitis keeps coming back
you have other problems with your urinary system such as kidney stones or difficulty emptying your bladder
you have diabetes
Children and men who get cystitis should always see a doctor. Cystitis in men can be caused by an enlarged prostate, which needs to be checked. In young children it's important to rule out any abnormalities of the urinary system to prevent kidney problems later on.

Your GP will ask about your symptoms and also for a sample of your urine. He or she may test your urine with a 'dipstick' or send the sample to a laboratory for more detailed tests.

Treatment of cystitis
Self-help
You can often treat cystitis yourself by doing the following.

Take an over-the-counter painkiller, such as paracetamol. Always read the patient information leaflet that comes with the medicine and if you have any questions, ask your pharmacist for advice.
Make your urine less acidic by drinking a glass of water with half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda dissolved in it. Products that contain sodium bicarbonate or potassium citrate have the same effect and are available from your pharmacist. Always read the patient information that comes with your medicine and ask your pharmacist for advice if you have any questions.
Make sure you drink enough fluids to help flush out the infection.
