You should not have sexual intercourse or masturbate for 48 hours after receiving a BCG dose.
After 48 hours you may resume sexual intercourse but you must use a condom.
After 48 hours you may masturbate but you must wash your hands and genitals etc with warm soapy water after.
You should comply with these precautions for the duration of BCG treatment and for the following six weeks.
