Brief Answer:
1 week

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
Thanks for the query.

It is recomended to wait with intercourses,1 week after the last antibiotic pill,although in males,the intercourse is much less risk factor for urinary infection than in females.
Also,you should do kidney ultrasound and urine culture in 2 weeks.

Wish you good health.
