Category 'C': There are no animal or human studies on the effects of Terconazole Vaginal Cream. However, since you are already 37 weeks along in your pregnancy, it would be unlikely that it would cause you or the baby any ill effects. Being 37 weeks along, I would hope that you have established a good relationship with your OB. You should communicate any concerns to your OB. Best of luck
