How soon after treatment can intercourse take place? Is masterbation OK/allowed? I am in the second week of my initial six week treatment schedule, for bladder cancer.
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.
