Well, I'd hold off on intercourse, first of all, or any vaginal entry, until all your symptoms have gone away. Treatment doesn't always work, and you don't want to make things worse or be in pain.

But if your symptoms have gone away AND you are done with your treatment, I think a day is just fine.
