About thrush

I have recently been diagnosed with having thrush and a water infection.

Im in my late 20s and althougjh i have had cystitus quite a few times before, i have never had thrush.

But i have been extremely stressed over the last few weeks, it was very high over the weekend. I also went away away then - and wore leggins as i was away as they were lighter to carry.

I have a boyfriend, but we are not sleeping together, although there is alot of messing around involved- touching, giving blow jobs to each other,etc.

Im due to go away with him next weekend - i just wanted to know what is it ok to do/not to do? As i dont want to pass anything to him - we are not having penetrative sex, but do 'mess around'.

I have taken a pessary a few days ago, are using cannestan cream and on trimethorprim - just 6 tablets to deal with the water infection.

Could you tell me how long on average does it take to feel 'better', and if i feek ok (less sore - im abit sore right now) - would it be ok to ressume our 'messing around' next weekend - 22 may?

Also, i guess im overeacting as i have no idea! im very busy this month with work, etc. Can i gp swimming whilst i have this condition?
