If your sex partner gave you the infection you've now exposed yourself to more of the bacteria. The rubbing or abrasion of sex could irritate your vaginal skin, especially if it's already irritated. Otherwise, I can't see any other effects.
When you finish your antibiotic, you will need to repopulate your digestive tract with good bacteria by taking a probiotic. Otherwise, you will be prone to get a yeast infection or another bacterial infection. The antibiotic kills all bacteria, both the good and the bad. It can't tell the difference. You need the "good" bacteria restored to your gastrointestinal tract.
