You should not have sex till your symptoms are better. Your partner also needs to be treated or you will reinfect each other.

I have the same problem, but is recurring regardless of the sex. Dnt laugh but Ive found that good ol'  bum cream works! My partner uses it as well but not as much cos he itches just for a day whereas mine has not stopped. But the cream has been the only saving grace...not even canestan worked for me. U gonna need a jar of bum cream in any way, so u may as well buy it now and try it on urself.
Good luck with the pregnancy
