I did'nt know I was'nt suppose to have sexual intercourse and I'm scared I messed something up or cause some type of damage please help!
A couple of things may happen.
Firstly having sexual intercourse may reduce the strength of the medicine. This may cause the medicine to not work as well.
Secondly many vaginal infections (for example, trichomoniasis) are spread by having sexual intercourse. You can give the infection to your sexual partner, and the infection could be given back to you.
Avoid having intercourse again until you have finished your medicine. If your symptoms have not disappeared see your doctor.
