Recurrent Thrush or something else?

Patient

Q: Hi there,
Over the past couple of years i get recurrent vaginal yeast infections which i treat with over the counter medication. However i seem to get thrush whenever i have sex without using condoms. Me and my partner have both been tested for STI's which have come back negative so i know that's not the issue. It seems to only be when he has ejaculated inside of me, i'll get soreness inside my vagina along with swelling and itchiness along with an unpleasant odor. I feel very self conscious after having sex and constantly worry about developing thrush. Is there any advice you can give me on this?
