Ideally you should wait until symptoms clear up completely - sex can irritate the sensitive skin, and you could also pass it on. It's not classed as an STI, but it can be passed along like one.

Have a look at the leaflet?
Personally I would wait until you had no more discharge from the pessary and no more symptoms, or you can ask a pharmacist to be sure

Hi all thank you for responding. I had very mild symptoms felt it coming and thought to take the pessary so should be cleared within 2 days. Wasn't planning to have sex until 6 days after taking the pessary.Just worried that the pessary might break the condom.

6 days after the pessary should be fine if there's no more discharge as there won't be any more clotrimazole in your system to damage the condom
