No!: Abstain from sex until well after your treatment and any symptoms have cleared up. Engaging in sexual intercourse, before or during treatment simply passes the organism to your partner who will likely re-infect you after your treatment. Use some impulse control.

I agree with Dr. Burns. It is imperative to wait at least 7 days AND the completion of treatment before you have sexual interactions.
