Fluconazole (oral canestan) at 4 weeks pregnant
neighboursnut · 07/03/2014 21:40
I did a pregnancy test, got a negative and then took fluconazole for thrush (normal dose of 150 mg). 4 days later there was no sign of AF and I got a positive. I knew when I took it that I shouldn't t take it if I was preggers but I thought I wasn't. Taking it in the first trimester in higher doses is associated with birth defects. It appears to be safe if only one dose is taken but there is v little evidence and I am still terrified. I desperately want this baby. Any one taken it at roughy 3-4 weeks? What was the outcome? Thanks in advance x

Please don't worry, I took it before I knew I was pregnant and DS is now sleeping upstairs, happy healthy 1yo

Sounds like u have done some research...i found out the same. Essentially the evidence available says that one dose is very unlikely to cause any problems. It's when people are taking it eg. Every day for 2 weeks that problems have been seen. Try not to worry. I realise that is easier said than done but try not to beat yourself up over this.

Thanks for your replies guys. One minute I think 'come on, you're being a div' and the next I'm convinced there will be a problem. The thought of worrying for the next 9 months isn't too appealing. Really reassuring to hear your little boy is fine dearteddyrobinson :)

Hi sorry I know this thread is old but I'm possibly in same situation now. Neighboursnut hope your baby was fine...I'm currently on anti bi for suspected UTI and had a miscarriage on 10th December. Swabs taken and its come back with thrush ! I feel paranoid taking the fluconzole pessary as I may be pregnant, although its too early to know.

The pessary is ok in pregnancy
Its the oral tablet that shouldn't be taken
