Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
What this is most likely BV - bacterial vaginosis, and you would benefit from an antibiotic called Flagyl 500mg twice per day for 14 days.

It doesn't hand aroung the next day if I didn't have intercourse the next night. Seems like it would continue if it was a bacterial problem.

Yes, this is BV - bacterial vaginosis - this is due to a pH imbalance caused by intercourse - this is exactly what you have.
If you want you do not have to do anything, or you can try over the counter products such as RepHresh and Lactobaccilis acidophilus too.
