Usually it is not recommended to have sex while using any vaginal formulations
Updated by Lioness1081 - You may have sex while using vaginally inserted creams and tablets. If using them, it is recommended to insert the dose AFTER having intercourse if you are going to have sex that day. Vagifem tablets dissolve over the course of several hours. You should be able to have sex without your partner absorbing estrogen 12-24 hours after insertion depending upon your body. You may also use a condom to prevent unwanted estrogen absorption by your partner. Usually doses are inserted at bedtime and you should not have sex after insertion for 12 hours. To clarify succinctly: it is 100% fine to be sexually active while taking vagifem just don't have sex right after inserting your dose.
