Yeast not contagious: Yeast infections are not, strictly speaking, contagious, ; more related to feminine anatomy: the warmth and moisture inherent to the vagina -- but clearly and obviously affected by changes in the bacterial flora, as notably with your antibiotic treatment above. Once the yeast infection has been treated, or even before, sexual relations are possible, depending on your comfort level.

Depends: Your level of comfort with sex is the limiting factor here. Would, however, recommend that your sexual partner, particularly if male, to use an antifungal cream on the penis several times a day for a few days so that they do not transmit the yeast back to you.

After meds finished: You should finish all of the medication, and then when you are feeling normal with no discharge, you can be active again.
