Yes: The concern about having sex while you have a yeast infection and are under treatment is one of passing the yeast to your partner, who can then give it back to you. If you have finished treatment and are without symptoms you can resume sexual activity. In addition- routine hand washing and cleaning of any items used during sex should eliminate the possibility of re infection.

Yes: masturbation will have no effect on yeast, even if active infection.

Yes: If you are no longer having vaginal itching, discharge, and discomfort then it is okay to resume your normal sexual activity, including masturbation. If you are still having symptoms, see your physician to ensure that they are indeed related to a yeast infection and not another infection requiring different treatment.
