In brief: Probably

You should probably avoid sex right before the ivf.
In ivf, washed sperm that are the "best of the best" are used. With normal sex, not all the sperm are helpful...Which might be part of the reason you need ivf. Unless you have something else wrong with your reproductive organs, then normal sex should not be a problem after the ivf has been done.
