Can i have sex as soon as saturday? Or will it make me get worse? Please help! :( if not saturday, maybe sunday? ... we've been planning this weekend for a month ..
It can take up to a week for your symptoms to completely resolve. You can probably have sex this weekend, but as KM mentioned, you may pass the infection to him. Men get "jock itch" which is the same kind of fungal infection. They show symptoms of red fine spotty rash on the penis or groin area that itches and may burn especially when he is sweaty in that area. If you are worried, a condom should help, yes. You might also want to call your Dr who prescribed the antibiotics, let him know you ended up with a yeast infection and ask if he can call in a Diflucan tablet. It works much quicker than Monistat creams. One pill treats most vaginal yeast infections. I am prone to yeast infections so every time a Dr writes a prescription for me, I insist a dose of Diflucan be written at the same time to take as a follow up after the antibiotics are done!
