I am pregnant and my doctor prescribed me this medicine but im afraid that it will hurt my baby even though he assured me it wouldn't. It is considered Pregnancy Category C so that worries me. I would really appreciate any help I can get. I read the reviews and on one of them, it read that she was pregnant and still used it. Please help me out with this question, i really need all the help I can get!! Thank you
During pregnancy, this medication should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your gynecologist. The Canadian manufacturer does not recommend using this product during the first 3 months of pregnancy.
Guess since the doc has prescribed the med., he/she would known the facts using the Terconazole Suppositories, if you are doubtful, you could always seek a second opinion.
Take care, and above all take good care of the unborn, best wishes!
Some meds r dangerous @ certain times of pregnancy & not at other times. It depends on the risk vs the need. A C class is not horrible its just that the drug usually has not been around as long as a b class. If they have something that is a b class it is best to use it but if not & u have spoken to your Dr & the test results show it is bad only n the 1st trimester it is probably fine
