Yes you can.

You can safely use the lidocaine at the vaginal entrance 10-15 min before having any penetration, including intercourse.

Using a condom would prevent any transfer of lidocaine to your partners penis, as there could be potential for the lidocaine to cause some numbing sensation to his penis.

As for side effects, the lidocaine can sometimes give a burning sensation with first application. But usually nothing more significant than that.
