Candles of Pimafucin: whether it is possible to apply during pregnancy
The active substance of Pimafucin is natamycin. Although he belongs to the group of antibiotics of a wide spectrum of action, he should not be afraid of it. Natamycin is not practically absorbed from the digestive tract, from the surface of the skin and mucous membranes, that is, does not enter the blood, and therefore, to the fetus during the development of pregnancy. Although side effects are still there: perhaps a slight irritation, swelling, itching, a burning sensation when using a suspension, cream, vaginal suppositories. And when using suppositories, nausea, vomiting, and upset of the stool are also possible. But pharmacists assure that such cases in practice are rare.
It should be borne in mind that if in the past you have already had allergic reactions to Pimafucin, now it can not be used. But the individual intolerance of the components of the drug is the only contraindication indicated in the instruction for the use of these suppositories. They can be used even in pediatric practice - for the treatment of a children's category of patients, and are not prohibited for use during breastfeeding.
Pimafucin suppositories are non-toxic even in large doses, pharmacists assure. In order for the candles to act, it is necessary to undergo a long course of treatment with Pimafucin. However, everything here is individual. Many women are saved by one candle in two weeks and remain very happy. And other Pimafucin does not help absolutely or has a very short-term effect. There are also those who, after the application of these candles, note the deterioration. So, maybe this drug will not work for you. By the way, some doctors consider Pimafucin an obsolete remedy and do not prescribe it anymore. And some even assure that it is unsafe, and they recommend using these candles only to the edgenot rare cases.
Although most gynecologists still believe that for you and for the fetus, Pimafucin is absolutely harmless. But, as we see, not the fact that it will be effective. However, given that among all other drugs, Pimafucin is considered the safest during pregnancy, it is probably worth a try. But only if the treatment is really necessary. And among other forms of Pimafucin, preference should always be given to candles.
