    Default Applicator safe to use during pregnancy

    Hi

    I've been prescribed some
    Medication to treat a bacterial infection "down there" and it come with an applicator that I would have to insert - does anyone know if this is safe to use while I'm 22 weeks pregnant?

    I don't see why it wouldn't be ok, especially if you get a fresh applicator each time. I had to use thrush medication which was inserted using a fresh applicator each day for three days.

    Yes my OB said it's totally fine. Just don't be reckless and push it in really far.

    I was told not to when I was pregnant, but I had placenta preavia.
    Not sure if that had anything to do with him telling me not to use it though.

    you should be fine to use the applicator as long as you dont insert it as far as you would if you werent pregnant.
