  • all topical antifungal treatmens can be used during pregnancy but oral treatments should not be given to either pregnant women or to nursing mothers
  • topical clotrimazole is recommended as the topical agent of choice, because it is supported by the most data in pregnant women, followed by topical miconazole and topical econazole
  • applicators can be used to insert topical preparations into the vagina during pregnancy but expectant mothers may prefer to insert pessaries using a finger
