In brief: Avoid.

The chemicals in the cream for yeast infection could possibly damage the latex in condoms and diaphragms, and not make it as effective for birth control.
It's recommended to abstain from intercourse if you're using either for birth control and currently using a vaginal cream for yeast infection.
