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. ...Read more
