I took diflucan (fluconazole) Wednesday and a dose today for a yeast infection. Also used the nystatin/steroid cream BID. IS it safe to have intercourse tomorrow?

In brief: Yes

But if your partner has not had antifungal cream on his penis it may be contaminated with Candida and he will re-colonize your vagina.

You will be recolonized anyway, usually from your own colon and skin. A yeast problem is not usually an infection. It is an abnormal proliferation of yeast which are already present. The overgrowth of yeast may be due to antibiotic use or diabetes.
