Monistat while pregnant ?

so the dr did a swab and it came back that i have a yeast infection .. he told me to get the over the counter monistat . Now i know the dr wouldn't tell me anything wrong but im nervous about using it since in 15 weeks pregnant .. I was just wondering if anyone had any opinions about it..
