Use Of Miconazole In Pregnant Women?

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It needs to be clarified, have you confirmed the results of your testpack with ultrasound to an obstetrician? The sign means to lower your expectations, the test pack results are positive, if it hasn't been confirmed by an ultrasound examination, it can't actually confirm you are pregnant. In rare cases, several conditions such as an inaccurate testpack procedure, urine contaminated with drugs or bacteria, ectopic pregnancy, wine pregnancy, etc. can also make the test pack result positive, even though the woman is not actually pregnant. For this reason, it is necessary to confirm with ultrasound.
If it is true that you are pregnant, then you should not use miconazole drugs carelessly, including in the form of ointments. Judging from its safety for use in pregnant women, miconazole is included in category C, which means that negative effects on the fetus have been found in studies conducted on animals, but there is no sufficient evidence regarding its negative effects on humans. Therefore, its use should be strictly limited, that is, if it is judged that the benefits far exceed the potential side effects that may arise.
Medicinal preparations in the form of ointments generally have little effect on blood circulation that supplies the fetus. However, this risk of danger cannot be ruled out. To find out, whether your baby is negatively impacted by your actions or not, it is necessary to carry out further evaluation by an obstetrician, namely through various examinations including ultrasound, or other prenatal tests. Therefore, you should try to consult directly with an obstetrician for proper handling. Next time, you should be careful in consuming or using any medicine, especially other than over-the-counter drugs. Even if you are not pregnant, you should not use drugs other than over-the-counter drugs without a prescription and advice from a doctor. In order for itching in the groin to subside, all you need to do is:
Clean the groin area when showering and after going to the bathroom
Choose pants that are loose, cool, and not rough
Change pants and clothes at least 2 times a day
Apply calamine lotion on the itchy groin (avoid it so that it doesn't hit the genital area)
Do not scratch excessively itchy groin
Hope it helps ..
