  • I had to take it when I was 5 weeks pregnant for a yeast infection. My OB prescribed it for me :)

  • Yeah I have a major problem with yeast infections during this pregnancy and my doctor has prescribed it to me 3 times already. I'd say it's safe.

  • My doc also prescribed it to me during 2 pregnancies - it's safer than inserting any YI creams (they're fine to rub on the outside, but not insert into the vagina).
