Should be safe: Terconazole is pregnancy class c due to poor data, but it does not appear to cause birth defects or other problems, even taken orally (systemically). The suppository is far safer because the drug is delivered only to your vaginal walls, and doesn't get systemically absorbed to an appreciable level. Terconazole suppositories are often prescribed to pregnant women with yeast infections.

Terconazole: This topical imidazole antifungal is meant to treat candidal vulvovaginitis. There should be no contraindication to having vaginal intercourse while receiving it. In addition, it would be helpful to treat your partner's penis with an antifungal cream so that he does not give the infection back to you after it has been treated.

I have been taking Terconazole for 3 days, and am supposed to take it for 4 more. I just found out it was a class C drug and am very concerned.?

Details are importan: Are you pregnant??? How long? You are "taking" terconazole? Using a vaginal applicator? The manufacturer advises to avoid during first 3 months of pregnancy. But there are no KNOWN adverse effects on pregnancy. Miconazole is also class C. This means they have not been extensively studied in humans during pregnancy. Relax. Are you sure you have a yeast problem? If so, why? Discuss with your DR.

After using terconazole 1 day, can I swim in the ocean?

Can you swim?: I hope so! Are you a good swimmer? Be careful if the surf is high or if there is an undertow. Watch out for sharks! Using terconazole should not have any bearing on this, though it might be best to not swim for a few hours after using it...
