No sex for a while: Probably no harm would come to your parnter. He could catch yeast (but not BV), which would be uncomfortable but not harmful. However, you should not be having sex at all until your infection(s) are cleared up. Doing so may prevent or delay cure, especially for BV. Also, get tested for STDs, which are a lot more common in women with BV. Discuss with your doctor.
