Hello paul;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Normally water does not interfere in the glucose test directly but it is better to do the test in fasting so please try to do as it is.Secondly having sex will not affect the result of fasting sugar so no problem in doing so.Although your body is using energy during sex but it is also important that the energy for sex is provided by testosterone and the levels of testosterone is high in morning.It should not affect your sugar.
Thanks
