?: safety is unknown in all literature searched, and it is caregory C during pregnancy, meaning: only use if benefit outweighs risks, you can try first clotrimazole vaginal OTC, which is probably safe with breastfeeding as the literature suggests, good luck

No data: I searched for some information on this. None found. Vaginal terconazole has not been studied during breastfeeding. Other antifungal agents may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant Alternatives are Cotrimazole or Miconazole. If u need ANY information on drugs during breast feeding , a very useful site is: http://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/cgi-bin/sis/htmlgen?LACT
