Medication For Vaginal Discharge At 16 Weeks Pregnant?
Hello, I am desi 16w pregnant at the moment I am having vaginal discharge and my gynecologist gave me the medicine to drink Floragyn capsules 2×1 for 30 days. What I want to ask is whether the drug is safe for my fetus and for pregnant women to consume? Thank you
Floragyn contains Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus reuteri. These drugs can be used in cases of candidiasis and bacterial vaginosis (with complaints of vaginal discharge).
In general, the drug is quite safe in pregnancy as long as it is consumed according to the doctor's instructions. Therefore I suggest that you take the medicine according to what your doctor recommends. If after the drug runs out, the complaints of vaginal discharge have not improved, you should return to the treating doctor so that you can evaluate and be given further treatment.
Some tips that you can do to support vaginal discharge are:
Use comfortable and not tight underpants Change your underwear when wet Try not to wear pads or pantyliners too often Manage stress properly Maintain vaginal hygiene Avoid using soap or feminine cleansers on the vagina without doctor's recommendation Wash and dry the vagina from front to back. small regularly Here's an article related to the topic of your question:
