you can get you some vaginal itch relief cream an that'll help with the itching. having sex can give yeast infection to your partner, it can be very painful or extremely uncomfortable for you, and can delay healing. sexual activity could prolong the infection, which allows the infection to return (may be worse than before). friction can rub the skin raw, and penetration can aggravate inflamed tissues, as well as increase the itching and irritation. inserting anything into the vagina (toy, finger, tounge, etc.) can introduce new bacteria possibly making the infection worse. when aroused, your vagina may begin to self-lubricate. adding more moisture to an already moist environment makes the itching and the discharge (if any) more pronounced.
I am a 55 year old woman. I have had my share of yeast infections, so I speak from much experience. If I was you, I would not have sex and I would seek out medical advice and get medicated. A little itch still means there is an infection there, even though it is little. It could re-blossom into something big. The OTC Monistat sometimes is not enough. You need an antibiotic and a prescription cream. Good Luck..
