Side bar gesture taking the user to login screen

I have a login page which has touchID authentication (via plugin) as well as userid & password fields. Post login when i am in my home screen, clicking on the sidebar menu icon will open up the side bar as desired but when i try to access the side bar via gesture (left to right swipe), will take me back to the login page.
This is happening with all the screens within the app.
TouchID or manual login, the end result is the same.
Any help would be appreciated.
